Battleborn

From the makers of the Borderlands series comes a brand new game, that well, kind of feels a lot like Borderlands. Battleborn takes a different approach on in-game leveling up and offers a wide variety of interesting characters to choose from. It hits consoles and PC on May 3.

DOOM

The DOOM reboot feels like it might be the most literal adaptation of the iconic first-person-shooter to date. We don't know if it's any fun to play, but we just can't ignore it.

No Man's Sky

Absolutely no pressure on the team at Hello Games. Kidding! No Man's Sky has amassed such a mind blowing amount of hype that we kind of feel sorry for co-creator Sean Murray every time he gets asked the same questions over and over. We've resigned ourselves to the fact that we're just going to need to wait until June 21st to play it for ourselves.
