Gamers Update Monthly

Releasing January 24th.

This is something new I am starting for the beginning of every month. I will bring you new tidbits on games that interest me most, free games of the month for Playstation Plus and Xbox Live Gold members, and games releasing for that month. And maybe once and awhile post fan art people have made.

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

No definitive release date as of yet, only rumors that it will release with the Switch, or won’t release with the Switch (will be glad when Nintendo announces the official date.) For now some official screenshots and a video from Nintendo (all pictures copyright of Nintendo)

A better look at the trade post from The Game Awards trailer.

Nintendo Switch

As of now, the only definitive info we have is what was in the trailer released last October. However, next week on the 12th Nintendo will have a major press event for the console. Hopefully we will get the specs and what games will be available upon launch (Crossing my fingers that Breath of the Wild will be one of them.) I will write an article next Thursday after the conference.

Nintendo Switch commercial from October:


Uncharted 4: Lost Legacy

The first story DLC in the Uncharted series, Uncharted 4: Lost Legacy, will be released sometime this year (it was actually announced at The Game Awards 2016, but totally forgot to include that in my previous article). You’ll get to play Chloe Frazer, Nate Drake’s ex who first appeared in Uncharted 2. From the trailer she will be working with Nadine who was introduced in A Thief’s End. In all honestly I am hoping Chloe can fight her, because Nadine was a pain the ass in the main game (finally managed to get Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and play it.)

A bit of info I just discovered. While there are four free games available for PS4 only two appeared under featured free games and the special PSPlus menu. I had to search for the other two. In this case The Swindle, and Titan Souls.
