March isn’t traditionally a big month for PC game releases, but some publishers and developers didn’t get the message. As game studios try to take advantage of what is typically a slow month for major new games, several have chosen to release their PC games in March 2019.
This is wonderful news for you and it makes March 2019 on the best Marches for PC game releases on record! The following four games provide thumping action, tactical combat, and epic entertainment.
The futuristic Front Mission franchise is getting a new look in Left Alive, the upcoming shooter from Japanese company Square Enix. Left Alive will retain the series’ socio-political intrigue and its love of giant mecha weapons (called “Wanzers”) while adding survival gameplay elements.
Left Alive is set in 2127 in an area called Novo Slavia. The area has been hit hard by conflict and it’s up to the game’s three protagonists (playable characters a soldier named Mikhail, a police captain named Olga, and an ex-rebel who has been framed for murder named Leonid) as they try to fight back the invaders.
Outnumbered and outgunned, the three survivors will have to fight hard to rescue others who are trapped in Novo Slavia and to defeat the enemy invaders. The game is a third-person shooter but players will have to think tactically and may have to act stealthily, picking off enemy soldiers in the shadows to avoid detection. Players can also lay traps, ambushing enemies to take them out.
There will a chance for total combat, though, and Left Alive even lets players hop into the pilot seat of a giant mech. They aren’t available all the time but players can hack them and turn them on enemies.
Hack and slash action adventure series Devil May Cry has existed since 2001, but before 2019, the latest game in the franchise was released in 2013 (DmC: Devil May Cry). Fans have been waiting six long years for a new entry in the series and on March 8, they will finally get to play that with Devil May Cry 5.
Developed by Capcom, Devil May Cry 5 stars both Dante and Nero as playable characters, along with a new playable character named V. The video game heroes will be hacking and slashing their way through masses of demons, looking extremely cool as they do so.
Those who have previously enjoyed playing as the characters will get to enjoy their impressive combat skills but with some twists. In Devil May Cry 5, Dante will wield new Devil Arms (sentient, demonic weapons) including the Balrog (Devil Arms created with the sealed power of the king of Fire Hells). Nero will wield his classic revolver and sword as well as his robotic arms (Devil Breakers) which have eight different parts and abilities that players can collect in each stage of the game. It’s unclear what V’s combat abilities will be, but fans should expect massively fun and action-packed combat whichever Devil May Cry 5 character they are playing as.
In Tom Clancy’s The Division, Ubisoft’s connected shooter tasked agents with restoring order on the streets of New York City. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 will take agents to Washington D.C. offering bigger and better action as players restore order to the nation’s capital.
In The Division 2, set to release on PC on March 15, players can expect to team up with other players to take down fearsome factions wreaking havoc on the city. There will be tactical shootouts and players will use their character's skills (including extra armor and gun turrets) to help to take these enemies down. Players will also be gathering up loot and XP, improving their characters and making them more powerful.
The two big changes to The Division 2 include the addition of raids and player versus player (PvP) multiplayer. Raids will be incredibly difficult missions that require teamwork and skill, involving bespoke mechanics and boss fights will involve eight players. There are also new PvP modes called Domination (teams will control zones on the map) and Skirmish (deathmatch with a limited number of respawns). With three Dark Zones (hard PvE environments) too, The Division 2 will offer lots of activities for players beyond the game’s main story missions.
