Trover leaps into VR-optional action game 'Trover Saves The Universe'.

All caught up on Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare, Death Stranding and Destiny 2? Then dip into these trailers for new releases like the highly rated Outer Wilds, scenic mystery adventure Draugen, retro jump'n'run Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, and the scary Five Nights At Freddy's VR and the cosmic jaunt from one half of the Rick & Morty team, Trover Saves The Universe.

Outer Wilds

Already rating as one of the year's best so far, this comes from a small team who already won a top Independent Games Festival award for a work-in-progress version of this planet-exploring timeloop adventure.

Notching a hefty 88 score on review aggregator OpenCritic, the Xbox One, Mac and PC's Outer Wilds might not have the voice acting of a bigger studio production but nonetheless looks to be a gem. 


A slowly unfurling 1920s detective mystery in which American artist Edward, accompanied by his teenage ward Lissie, searches for his sister Betty, last seen in a remote Norwegian coastal village whose population has somehow disappeared. Available now on PC, on console later in 2019. 

Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

Classic action platform series Wonder Boy saw six entries between the years of 1986 and 1994 and has recently been revived through a series of remakes, of which this is the second, yet the first to land on mobile thanks to this week's Android and iOS launch. 

Trover Saves The Universe

Like FNAF:VR, this is a virtual reality game for PlayStation 4 (now) and PC (June 4), but it's also playable via standard TV or monitor displays. The art style is reminiscent of hit adult-humor cartoon show Rick & Morty thanks to the involvement of co-creator Justin Roiland.

Trover, whose eyes have eyes (and mouths), bounds off to retrieve his doggies and maybe save the cosmos as well. 

Five Nights At Freddy's VR: Help Wanted

Launching on PlayStation 4 and PC for the PS VR, and the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, respectively, the latest FNAF is a collection of scary mini-games that have gone down a treat with fans (98% positive Steam user rating) despite being the first series entry not made by franchise creator Scott Cawthon. – AFP Relaxnews
