Spring has sprung, bringing a bunch of new games in its wake. Here are 5 games we’re looking forward to in April. Oh, and we won’t make you click through five pages to look at the entire list.

5 Games We’re Looking Forward to in April

Dark Souls III

Prepare to die once again. As the newest entry in FromSoftware and Namco Bandai’s Souls series, Dark Souls III brings back the challenging gameplay the series is known for. We’re looking forward to exploring its interconnected world, as well as trying out its new features like the “Ready Stance.”

Dark Souls III will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on April 11, 2016.

Quantum Break

Remedy Entertainment has big plans for action-adventure fans with the release of Quantum Break. Players take control of James Joyce, who has the power to freeze time at will. We are looking forward to playing with Joyce’s time-bending mechanics, as well as the “digital show” segments.

Quantum Break will come out for the Xbox One and PC on April 5, 2016.

Ratchet & Clank

Tying into the movie of the same name, Insomniac Games’ Ratchet & Clank stars, well, Ratchet & Clank as they save the world. A reimagining of the original game, we’re looking forward to all of its weaponry and the general humor and polish the series is known for.

Ratchet & Clank will come out for the PlayStation 4 on April 12, 2016.

Star Fox Zero - Gamers Heroes

Star Fox Zero

Nintendo and PlatinumGames are teaming up to bring players Star Fox Zero, the latest entry in the Star Fox series. Players take control of Fox McCloud as he takes on Andross’ forces in Corneria, Zoness, Titania and more. We’re looking forward to the new Arwing features, as well as the branching paths and arcade-like gameplay.

Star Fox Zero will come out for the Wii U on April 22, 2016.

DiRT Rally

PC gamers had their fun, now it’s time for console gamers to have their turn. Codemasters’ DiRT Rally is bringing its signature racing style, rendered at 1080p and 60 frames per second. We’re looking forward to diving into its asynchronous multiplayer across its 36 stages.

DiRT Rally will come out for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 5, 2016.

What we at Gamers Heroes are looking forward to the most:

We are looking forward to Dark Souls III the most. Its crushing difficulty, along with series director Hidetaka Miyazaki at the helm practically guarantee a good time.

Casey Scheld

Casey Scheld has more than 15 years of experience in the gaming industry as a community manager, social media director, event specialist, and (of course) gaming editor. He has previously worked with gaming start-ups like Raptr, publishers like Konami, and roller derby girls at PAX West (check out Jam City Rollergirls)! Gamers Heroes is a passion project for him, giving him a chance to tap into the underground side of gaming. He is all too eager to give these lesser-known heroes of the indie space the attention they so rightly deserve, seeking out the next gem and sharing it with the world. Previously making appearances at events like CES, GDC, and (the late) E3, he is all too happy to seek out the next big thing.
