The 8 Steam versions you can’t miss this week

Game news The 8 Steam versions you can’t miss this week

A new week begins that rhymes with new games to discover. And one of the best platforms to do this is obviously Steam. A game is released on the Valve platform every 53 minutes. Suffice it to say that you need to do some sorting. This is why we’re once again bringing you a selection of Steam releases to watch specifically this week.

Crisis of drinks

Do you need to start the week with something dynamic to get started? Team Soda teams up with bilibili (FIST: Forged In Shadow Torch) to bring us a side scrolling shooter where speed and accuracy are the keys to survival. Soda Crisis, from its small name, puts you in the shoes of a strange little character with highly developed technologies. Together with your fighting techniques, this equipment will allow you to face the dangers of the futuristic world of Soda Crisis and to complete your mission. What is that ? You’ll find out in the game. All we know for now is that this is a rescue mission of the utmost importance that only you can complete. During the Steam Neo Fest, the game was unveiled in a demo that caught our attention. The latter is also available, if you want to try your hand at the game before going to the cashier.

If more peace of mind is your thing, Hanging Gardens Interactive’s standalone adventure will probably be enough for you. In the fantastic universe of Sonority everything is calm and silent … maybe even a little too much. Silence reigns in this world. So much so that the music has become a kind of magic, which Esther, our protagonist, masters. Accompanied by a talking raccoon, the young girl goes in search of ancestral knowledge, lost melodies and works from the past. But the path to find them is not accessible to everyone. Blocked by all kinds of puzzles, Esther will have to use her panpipes to solve them and continue her search. Using musical notes as game elements, Sonority offers us a unique approach that will delight musicians and enthusiasts alike. If the puzzles can be solved acoustically, the developers promise us that no previous musical knowledge is required to prove their title.

My time in Sandrock

Been to My Time At Portia? This rural life simulator halfway between Animal Crossing, Harvest Moon and Dark Cloud 2 has invited you to build your own little town in an idyllic setting. The title enjoyed some commercial and critical success, and gradually managed to make a name for itself in the market. So much so that Pathea Games has decided to return for a new title: My Time at Sandrock. Launched on kickstarter in October 2020, the project wowed potential players who quickly met their donation goals. So how does this new title differ from My Time at Portia? First, it takes place in a more desert environment in which new characters evolve (about thirty new NPCs). Add to that some little new features like the possibility of player marriage, a buggy racing mini-game or even an additional city and you get My Time at Sandrock, which launches in Early Access this week.

Redout 2


The release date of Redout 2 has unfortunately been postponed to June 16.

Simulations of quiet little lives, isn’t it for you? Do you need it to move and pulsate? Well that’s okay because the fastest racing game in the universe is back. The popular Redout, released in 2016, finally gets a sequel and the least we can say is that it promises. Like its predecessor, Redout 2 is intended as a tribute to arcade racing games. It must be said that with its neon lights and adrenaline-pumping sensations, the title has something to make your nostalgia speak. Based on the principle of antigravity, the game published by Saber Interactive is reminiscent of classics of the genre such as F-Zero and Wipeout. In terms of content, this new work offers us a single player campaign and a competitive multiplayer mode that can bring together 12 players online on the same circuit. Of course, you can also count on a strong customization of your vehicle and a dynamic soundtrack (Giorgio Moroder, Zardonic, etc.) to accompany your most astounding speed peaks.

Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition – Knights of the Mediterranean

Time to tell you about a strategy game behemoth: Age of Empires. Almost two years ago, fans of the saga got their hands on Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition. This improved version of the 2005 game offered license fans a more complete experience than ever with the base game, of course, but also with all expansions released so far. Suffice it to say that in terms of content, Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition already had enough to dwarf its competitors. And since we can’t get enough of them, the game also regularly offers additional extensions. After in particular The African Royals, it is the turn of the Knights of the Mediterranean to join the party for more and more news. On the program, we find of course two new civilizations (Malta and Italy) and the introduction of historical maps, but also a new game mode. Carrying the Tycoon name, it aims to be more user-friendly and easy to access, emphasizing the economic rather than the military aspect.

Elite sniper 5

We continue on the classics with the new work of Sniper Elite, soberly titled Sniper Elite 5. Almost six years after its predecessor, the title arrives this week and invites us, once again, to blow up the skulls of the evil Nazis. To do this, you will find good old Karl Fairburne. Basically, there are no drastic changes. This felt a little too much during our play session, prompting us to attribute the title to something shy to see. But in terms of form, what does this Sniper Elite 5 have in store for us? Well, we already know that the game will offer a Season Pass (included in the Deluxe version) centered around a new two-part campaign. We also learned that the title can be browsed by two in online cooperation and that there will also be a competitive mode in the game, called Invasion. The latter will consist of interfering in another player’s campaign to kill him without any other form of trial.

Like the kangaroo

Finally a good shot of nostalgia to forget the tragedies of the war? Well that’s okay because more than 20 years after the release of the first license game, Kao the Kangaroo is back. Put on your finest boxing gloves for this original adventure with the good taste of the 3D platformers of yesteryear. Tate Multimedia is in place and promises us the greatest adventure in the history of the saga. Colorful world, mandalas to distribute, puzzles to solve, magical gloves to master, masters of combat to defeat … There will be things to do and discover in this new work, all without forgetting to complete your mission, which it is less important. In fact, your father and sister are missing and it’s up to you to find them. It remains to be seen what it will look like once the game launches, but Kao The Kangaroo has at least the benefit of speaking to young and old alike.

Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy

This will not speak to everyone. It must be said that at first glance Unexplored 2 is not really accessible, and not only because it is only available in English. However, if you’ve already tried Unexplored before the name, you won’t be out of place. Like its predecessor, it’s a top-down action-RPG with roguelite components. In the program? Dungeon to be explored in nag or infiltrated mode thanks to Ludomotion’s know-how that has already proven itself in the past. Note that people who participated in the funding of the game have access to it since 2019. And given the various feedbacks, it looks particularly good for this somewhat special open world game. If you are curious to know if Unexplored 2 is for you, you can already try it through a small demo. The perfect opportunity to make a decision before the game releases this weekend
