For extra immersion, Downward Spiral also features support for PS VR, Oculus Touch, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality.
It launches sometime this spring on PC and PS4. Keep an eye out for our thoughts on DSHS in the coming months.
Releasing tomorrow on PS4 and PS Vita (complete with Cross-Buy and Cross-Save functionality), as well as Nintendo Switch, Rogue Aces is a rogue-lite aerial combat game with a “colourful 1940s” style.
Featuring 100 procedurally generated levels that increase in difficulty, players must turn the tide of war by capturing enemy bases and eliminating their armies while managing their own fuel supplies and aircraft repairs.
You can read our verdict on the game soon, as we’ll be taking it for one of our famous Quickies.
Bit Loom and Coatsink are collaborating to bring you PHOGS!, an adventure physics-puzzler set in the “vivid, colourful world” known as the Phoggyverse and starring two dogs joined at the middle.
Their (its?) “gelatinous mid-section” is what allows players to solve puzzles together via a cooperative control scheme inspired by the excellent Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, which means, just like Brothers, the game can also be played solo.
This will release sometime in 2019 across multiple platforms, but we’ll hopefully be going hands-on with the game this weekend at EGX Rezzed.
Another we’ll be looking to play at Rezzed, Steel Rats is a 2.5D “stunt combat game” coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC later this year.
You can see some of the game’s motorbike-based action below in the brand-new gameplay reveal. There’s definitely a Trials meets Biker Mice from Mars vibe going on, which is no bad thing.
City of Brass
A first-person rogue-lite adventure inspired by Arabian Nights, City of Brass is developed by Uppercut Games, a studio made up of former BioShock developers.
The goal is to make your way deep into the City of Brass to hunt for treasure, dodging traps and taking on enemies with your scimitar and lash and escaping before time runs out.
The game has been available via Steam Early Access since last September and has seen a positive initial response, but is now set for final release on Xbox One and PS4 next month. We’ll be bringing you our thoughts on City of Brass when it launches on 4 May.
