What games are coming to PC and console in May? From Trek to Yomi to Sniper Elite 5, from Salt and Sacrifice to Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, here are the releases of the month.

May 2022 undoubtedly stands as a passing month with regards to games coming up on PlayStation, Xbox, PC and Nintendo Switch. Waiting for the big productions that will make their debut in the summer, we are given a way to breathe, but not without some thick output.

This is definitely the case with Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansongwith its disturbing atmospheres and the peculiar setting of Boston, but also of Trek to Yomiwhich aims to fascinate us with the sceneries of a merciless feudal Japan and noir shades.

Those who prefer action can instead try their hand at Rebellion’s new precision shooter, Sniper Elite 5downloadable for free by Xbox Game Pass subscribers, with the high degree of challenge of soulslike metroidvania Salt and Sacrifice or with the bloody multiplayer challenges of Evil Dead: The Game.

Trek to Yomi

Out on PC, PS5, PS4, XSX and XOne on May 5th

Born from the collaboration between the Italian game designer Leonard Menchiari and the Polish development team Flying Wild Hogs, Trek to Yomi stands as a passionate tribute to the Japanese Middle Ages and its most famous singers, from Akira Kurosawa to Yasujiro Ozu. At the command of a brave samurai, we will find ourselves facing various situations and having to face challenging fights.

The graphics of the game, strongly characterized by one monochrome noir style, alternates three-dimensional exploratory sequences with two-dimensional duels in which the katana is the master, determining the life or death of the characters and generating highly spectacular sequences, albeit with some reservations regarding the mechanics that regulate the clashes. Trek to Yomi tried.

Salt and Sacrifice

Several years after the release of the first episode, the peculiar mix between metroidvania and soulslike by Ska Studios returns with Salt and Sacrifice. This is not a direct sequel, and in fact in the game we will take on the role of an Inquisitor, tasked with exploring the kingdom and eliminating the dangerous wizards who have invaded it, plunging it into chaos.

After choosing our class from among those available, we will be able to immediately check thehigh degree of challenge of fights and start a path that will gradually lead us to become stronger, using the resources collected to improve the equipment and unlock new skills that can provide us with a few more chances to survive. The tried of Salt and Sacrifice.

Evil Dead: The Game

The legendary film saga created by Sam Raimi returns to PC and consoles with a very interesting tie-in. Evil Dead: The Game draws on all chapters of The Houseto the iconic The Army of Darkness and the television series Ash Vs. Evil Dead to deliver us a considerable amount of characters, among which of course the hero played by Bruce Campbell, Ash Williams, stands out.

The experience comes as a frantic competitive-based multiplayer in which we will be able to control heroes or villains and try our hand at rather lively games, taking advantage of special skills and fielding alliances and coordination in order to win matches and survive one more day among the lands cursed by the Necronomicon.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong

The latest tie-in of the famous (now also in the gaming field) role-playing game produced by White Wolf, Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong is an RPG set in Boston in which we will be able to play the role of three different vampires over a hundred years old, with the aim of leading their family towards the glory and control of the territory, in the context of an experience with a strong narrative focus.

During the campaign we will be called to take decisions which will inevitably have consequences, influencing the course of events and leading the protagonists Galeb, Emen and Leysha towards a different epilogue. What kind of approach will we choose to take? Will we be violent, silent or will we try to use the weapons of seduction?

Sniper Elite 5

The sharpshooter Karl Fairburne returns in the new chapter of the Rebellion series with Sniper Elite 5, this time in charge of foiling the plans related to Operation Kraken: a project that could allow Nazi Germany to win the second World War even before the Allies landed in Europe.

The mission will take place in France, among fascinating castles and military bases: will we be able to complete it? In our support, we will find new ways to interact with the scenery, from ziplines for a quick escape to surfaces on which to climb to score silent eliminations while moving low through the bushes.

The gameplay typical of the franchise is revived in its traditional mechanics, giving the best when adopting a stealth approach and shooting from a distance, embellished by the spectacular X-ray Kill Cams that show the dramatic consequences of the passage of bullets in the body of the targets.

In the close combat the game, on the other hand, once again loses a few hits, proving to be a bit approximate and cumbersome when the enemies shorten the distances: we talked about this and more in the Sniper Elite 5 tried.

SnowRunner

Out on PS5 and XSX on May 31st

Exactly two years after the original release, SnowRunner will finally receive thefree upgrade to PS5 and Xbox Series X | S, introducing important technical improvements able to further enhance the simulation directed by Pavel Zagrebelny. As we wrote at the time of the SnowRunner review, this episode does not give up the complexity typical of the series but at the same time it is a good starting point for those approaching it for the first time.

Over the course of a long campaign we will find ourselves having to complete a series of increasingly complex objectives, transporting heavy materials, recovering vehicles blocked and facing the roughness of the terrain as well as the most impervious climatic conditions, which will put a strain on nerves and engines, rigorously simulated by a renewed physical engine.
