This week GFN Thursday brings us eleven games in total. Four of which are day and date releases; Cris Tales, Death's Door, Warhammer 40,00: Battlesector and Orcs Must Die! 3. Five games are already available on GeForce NOW but this week come from additional storefronts.
GFN Thursday Highlight - Orcs Must Die! 3
Slice, burn, toss, zap. Grind and gib massive hordes of repugnant orcs in this long-awaited successor to the award-winning Orcs Must Die! Series. My highlight of the week is set to release July 23rd and will be joining the GeForce Now library via Steam. You can pre-purchase Orcs Must Die! 3 for around £25 right now and receive additional bonus content.
Everything you enjoyed from the previous instalments return plus much more. A brand new story is available and is set 20 years after Orcs Must Die! 2, where the War Mage and Sorceress have rebuilt the order and trained new apprentices.
All new war scenarios allow us to confront overwhelming armies of orcs on the battlefields surrounding the castles. War machines like mega flip traps and mega boom barrels let you throw and unleash pyrotechnic hell upon the waves of orcs.
The Drastic Steps campaign and content are included for free with Orcs Must Die! 3 and I highly recommend giving this one a go. It’s a great solo challenge and a ton of fun playing with friends online.
“We love that our players can experience all of the action and all of the orcs on any GeForce NOW compatible device,” said Patrick Hudson, CEO at developer Robot Entertainment. “It’s great that players who may not have powerful devices can still play the real PC version of our game at orc-slaying power.”
GFN Thursday Games
A further 10 games are set to arrive this week and we’ll begin with a day and date release, Cris Tales.
This is a gorgeous, indie love letter to classic JRPGs with a new perspective. Peer into the past, act in the present and watch your choices dynamically change the future - all on one screen. I’ve had a play on this already and surprisingly, enjoyed the gameplay. I say surprisingly as it’s not generally the style of game I usually like, so it’s worth checking out.
Another day and date release, available now is Death's Door. Reaping souls of the dead and punching a clock might get monotonous but it’s honest work for a crow. The job gets lively when your assigned soul is stolen and you must track down a desperate thief to a realm untouched by death - where creatures grow far past their expiry.
Everything you have come to expect from a game published by Devolver Digital is present here and you can play via Steam for around £17.
Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is a fast-paced turn-based strategy game set in the grimdark universe of the 41st Millenium. Pick your force, develop your army, field mighty heroes and fight for victory using superior strategy, awesome abilities, and devastating weaponry.
Recommend this if you haven’t already, it’s unlike anything else you have played. The Alan Wake series really does hold up today.
