Train Sim (Xbox One and PS4)
Ever wanted to take control of a high-speed train or freight on one of the busiest railways on the globe? Well Train Sim World lets you do just that, and much more. You’ll need to do what it takes to work your way up to the rank of a railway engineer by ensuring trains that carry tons of passengers or freight can get to their destination in a timely efficient manner, and when you’re controlling the rails in New York and London you’ll find that’s not an easy task!
The Persistence VR (PS4)
Those who have a PSVR will be able to take control in this 1st person survival-horror title, where you are the last of any survivors after everyone else has been murdered by your mutated ex-shipmates. The Persistence has an unusual twist though; each time you die in-game you’ll get the chance to upgrade your stats in order to be a stronger survivor in the next life. What’s interesting is the fact that each life is completely different, each time you return from the afterlife the story will play out following a different path. You’ll need to turn on your stealth kills to really survive, leaning and peaking using the PSVR’s capabilities will be key in getting anywhere near to surviving this game.
