On the program from June 20 to 26: strategy, adventure and action. In short, everything you need to have a good time. Ready ? So off we go!
Planet Zoo: Conservation Pack
If you like management games, you probably know the very good Planet Zoo, released in November 2019 on PC. Well since all this time, the game from the Frontier studio has been welcoming new content additions: the latest, “Planet Zoo: Conservation Pack”, will be there from June 21st. As its name suggests, the DLC emphasizes the preservation of the planet, signing thearrival of five protected species in the players’ parks: Przewalski’s horse, the Amur leopard, the scimitar-horned oryx, the siamang and the axolotl. With more than 150 new elements dedicated to ecology and nature, you will have to create a haven of peace for these animals as well as for your visitors. Without forgetting that there is also a new scenario, “The Refuge of the Turtle Rock”, where it will be necessary to save, to raise many creatures.
Oddworld: Soulstorm Enhanced Edition
We continue with the return on Steam of an icon of the 90s: Oddworld, and precisely of Oddworld: Soulstorm Enhanced Edition. If you don’t understand much about license news, know that it’s the Sequel to Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasy, a remake of the very first part Abe’s Odyssey originally released in 1997. Basically, the hero Abe and his companions have escaped the clutches of the RuptureFarms company and are continuing their escape. And of course along the way there are a lot of enemies, traps. As we explained to you in our test of the game, “Soulstorm is a platformer (…) which requires running, jumping, avoiding traps – possessing enemies and infiltrating disturbing places filled with ‘overarmed adversaries’. All with weapons that can be crafted on the fly. In short, a great adventure to live or to relive!
Anvil Saga (Early Access)
This time, we are tackling a management game that seems very nice! Anvil Saga immerses you directly in the Hundred Years War. Suffice to say that it is not joy at the time, and that many challenges await the world. While you, as a blacksmith, are in the middle of it all, doing your best to turn your small business into a successful business. “But the path leading you to posterity will be strewn with pitfalls” announces the Steam page of the project. It is therefore up to you to manage relations with all the passing characters, whether bandits, lords, priests or even French or British soldiers. Obviously, Anvil Saga is divided into two parts: one reserved for the improvement of the forge and the other to manage the relationship. Because accepting a faction’s request could have serious consequences. But don’t neglect your own team!
For the most nostalgic among you, note to finish the upcoming release of two collections: Sonic Origins and Capcom Fighting Collection. For the first, it’s simple, you will be able to (re)discover the founding titles of the famous blue hedgehog, in: Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Sonic CD. All thanks to a sober remaster but which still includes some new features, in particular special levels via a museum. In the other case, it isgolden age of capcom fighting games that you can savor, with especially Hyper Street Fighter II, Darkstalkers and Cyberbots. Cult titles which this time welcome an online dimension, and even something to facilitate access to newcomers. Yes, there is a system to save at any time and another to perform techniques quickly.

AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES – nirvanA Initiative
Do you like slightly perched investigation games? Then you’ll love AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative, sequel to the first AI: The Somnium Files. A case that begins under very mysterious conditions: Six years ago, the right half of a body was found. The left half did not resurface until six years later, in very good condition with no signs of decay, as if the victim had just died. For your part, you play the role of special agent Mizuki accompanied by Aiba, his AI sidekick. For now, we don’t know much more, except that the first episode was very popular and that this sequel seems to rely on scenes as strange as they are dreamlike. It is certain, the game will reserve us more than one surprise. Come on, let’s get ready for the release coming soon!
