This Week In Games: Octopaths, Warhammers And Captain Toad | Gaming

It’s still July, so the amount of new releases is still at a trickle. But we’ve got an interesting week nonetheless: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker at the end, finally its way from the Wii U, while JRPG fans will be satiated with Octopath Traveller.

If you’d like something more grim, how about a Warhammer 40,000 4X? users can just get stuck into Skaven directly with Warhammer Vermintide 2, and those who prefer a more pedestrian style of gameplay … well, there’s always a new Cricket Captain.

Here’s the bulk of what’s out this week.

  • Octopath Traveller (Switch)
  • Shining Resonance Refrain (PC, PS4, XBO)
  • Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (Switch)
  • Insane Robots (PC, PS4, XBO)
  • The Spectrum Retreat (PS4, XBO)
  • All- Fruit Racing (PC, PS4)
  • Warhammer: Vermintide 2 (XBO)
  • Ice Caves of Europa (PC)
  • Gekido Kintaro’s Revenge (XBO)
  • Earthfall (XBO)
  • International Cricket Captain 2019 (PC)
  • Defiance 2050 (PC)
  • Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War (PC)
  • Islands of Nyne (PC)
  • Grabbers (PC)

So, let’s start with the new Warhammer game. It’s a hexagonal grid, turn-based 4X affair. Rather than show you a trailer, a huge chunk of gameplay is more appropriate, so here’s 90 minutes you can skip through:

Here’s Captain Toad on the Switch. It runs nicely enough at 1080p.

A quick reminder, courtesy of this year’s E3, about Octopath Traveller:

And here’s a small segment of gameplay from The Spectrum Retreat, just to set the scene. It’s a narrative driven puzzler, simply.

Another one that stands out for battle royale fans: Islands of Nyne. It’s a more futuristic-style of battle royale game; it’s also very vibrant.
