Things are picking up for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Following a surprisingly busy February
, the momentum continues as both the Xbox One and PS4 are each seeing the launch of an exclusive title this month. For Xbox One, we've got Titanfall
, Respawn Entertainment's highly anticipated multiplayer shooter. For PS4, we've got inFamous: Second Son
, the newest entry in the long-standing PlayStation exclusive franchise. In between, we've got a number of next-gen re-releases of past titles including Awesomenauts, FEZ,
and even Dead Nation
. Below are the new Xbox One and PS4 games coming in March 2014.
AWESOMENAUTS ASSEMBLE! - PS4 - MARCH 4, 2014
The next-gen console version of Ronimo Games' 2D MOBA, Awesomenauts Assemble!
features 15 characters to square off against online in fast-paced 3v3 battles with a drop-in/drop-out matchmaking system. New to the PS4 version are additional skins to customize your characters, a new map, improved controls, and 7 all-new characters.
DEAD NATION: APOCALYPSE EDITION - PS4 - MARCH 4, 2014
Remember Housemarque's top-down shoot 'em up, Dead Nation
, that was release through PSN in 2010? Well, Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition
is a re-release of that apocalyptic, zombie-infested shooter with "numerous enhancements" including full 1080p, improved textures, rendering and effects. Controls have also been improved with the addition of a quick weapon select. Additionally, two new modes have been added for the PS4 version: a high score Challenge Mode and a livestreaming Broadcast+ Mode
which allows stream viewers to actually influence the difficulty
of your game.
I should also mention that Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition
is the free for PlayStation Plus members on PS4
for the month of March.
TITANFALL - XBOX ONE - MARCH 11, 2014
-- Respawn Entertainment's multiplayer shooter -- is easily one of the Xbox One's most anticipated game. Seriously, this is the reason my brother went out and bought an Xbox One
(though the question is still asked
). Microsoft certainly has a lot riding on Titanfall
, which some claim could turn into a franchise as big as Call of Duty
. While I can't call it the "CoD killer" just yet, it has all the right stuff
to make it a serious contender as one of the best shooters for 2014. For Xbox One owners, this is probably a must-buy game. If you don't own an Xbox One,Microsoft is offering a lovely bundle
for $499 which includes an Xbox One and a free copy of Titanfall
