There were so many new game releases to choose from in March that we highlighted 15 games instead of our normal 10. My top picks for March were Generation Zero, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and Tom Clancy’s The Division 2.
April looks to be lighter on the big releases which should let our bank balances recover a little. There’s still plenty coming out across each of the platforms so there should be something for everyone.
Of all of the April releases, I’m most looking forward to Days Gone on PS4. I’m also keen to check out Mortal Kombat 11 and World War Z.
Here’s a full list of my 10 games to watch out for in April 2019:
