John Wick Hex
First off, the now released for the PlayStation 4 port, John Wick Hex, is a timeline strategy game with elements of resource management where the player maneuvers the character through a level on a hex-based grid. Think of it as something like a John Wick type chess game. This is an excellent and unique game that you will enjoy playing.
The critically acclaimed comic book style game just released its game for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. In this game, you play as hydrated prisoners aboard a stranded personnel vessel, whose AI must rely on its dangerous cargo to obtain fuel for a final jump to its destination. Despite the game being very comic book-like, the writing and its dark humor stand out the most, so without a doubt, you will surely be entertained with this game.
StarWars Episode I: Racer
The Guinness Record title holder for the best selling Sci-Fi racing game is releasing for the Nintendo Switch on May 12 and for the PlayStation 4 on May 26. Based on the podracing sequence featured in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. The game features all of the racers and racecourse on Tatooine featured in The Phantom Menace.

Releasing for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, Ion Fury or formerly known as Ion Maiden, is a Cyber-Punk, First-person shooter game where the players assume the role of Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison, a bomb disposal expert aligned to the Global Defense Force. Dr. Jadus Heskel, a transhumanist cult leader, unleashes an army of cybernetically-enhanced soldiers on the futuristic dystopian city of Neo D.C., which Shelly is tasked with fighting through. This is an excellent game to satisfy that urging Cyber-Punk game that we all have been craving for.

Bioshock Collection & Borderlands Legendary Collection

If you ever owned the Wii way back, this is one the best game ever released for it, and now, it’s rereleasing for the Nintendo Switch this May 29th. The game is the first entry of the Xenoblade series. It’s an open-world, role-playing game with science fiction and fantasy elements in its narrative.
These are some of the many titles that will be released this May. Honestly, I am surprised by the many rereleases of games in the past and the lack of StarWars themed games. But, I guess that podracing game will do. If you have your own list of games coming this May, please do share them in the comment section below. Stay safe and happy gaming.
