The Gears of War franchise is known for its fast-paced cover-based shooting mechanics and deep lore of a world overrun by monsters. Gears Tactics aims to bring a different genre of gamers to the Gears lore. Think of Gears Tactics to be a lot like XCOM. It is a turn-based strategy game.

If you are a fan of the Predator movies, then this one is definitely for you to consider. The game is an asymmetrical shooter set in remote areas, where the Predator stalks the most challenging prey. Gamers can play as a member of an elite Fireteam sent to complete paramilitary operations. You must get done before the Predator finds you. Gamers can also play as the Predator and hunt the operatives. This is one that you can enjoy with friends online. 

My Friend Pedro
Release Date: April 2
Platforms: PS4 (Already available on Xbox One, PC and Switch) 

My Friend Pedro isn’t a new game, but it is releasing for the PS4 in April 2020. It first launched for the Nintendo Switch and PC and then made its way to the Xbox One and is now finally coming to the PS4. The game answers one simple question - What happens when a talking banana tells you what to do? The answer is equally simple - you end up causing a lot of mayhem with some slick moves and bullet-time that puts Neo to shame. That's the best way to describe My Friend Pedro. A 2.5D game, My Friend Pedro blends old school platforming with slick action to give you a fun-filled experience.
