Best Games Releasing in April 2024

The first quarter of 2024 has been great for gaming with so many great games but April will be a relatively quiet month. There are no big releases this month but that doesn’t mean there are no games to look out for.

Coincidentally, there are some PlayStation ports, which include one of my all-time favorite, Dave the Diver. Here are the best games releasing in April 2024 that you need to look out for.

Children of the Sun

René Rother, Devolver Digital

Children of the Sun is an interesting game and has a very distinct art style that suits its premise. It is a third-person, tactical shooter but you guide a single bullet.

In the dark, vengeful world, you guide a single bullet on a tactical puzzle-filled mission. You take on the sinister cult that destroyed your life, seeking out their enigmatic leader. You can use your bullet to reshape the environment, trigger traps, and eliminate the cult with calculated precision and style.

If you want to experience the game before purchasing it, you can check out the demo.

Ereban: Shadow Legacy

Baby Robot Games

When unveiled at Xbox Games Showcase last year, it garnered attention because of its similarity to Aragami. Ereban: Shadow Legacy is primarily a stealth game (which is very rare now) intertwined with platforming and puzzles.

where you play as Ayana, the last of a forgotten race with the power to merge with shadows. In a morally complex sci-fi universe, you must uncover the truth about your ancestry and its connection to the powerful megacorporation, Helios.

If you like Aragami or you are a fan of stealth games, you should definitely check this out!

No Rest for the Wicked

PS5, Xbox Series S|X, PC
Moon Studios, Private Division

Moon Studios, known for the beautiful Ori series, are bringing their talent to a darker, more action-focused world. The year is 841, and a ruthless plague known as the Pestilence has returned, threatening to consume the entire kingdom. You play as Madrigal Seline, a ruthless but devoted member of the church sent to cleanse the corrupted lands.

It will feature a fast-paced, challenging combat inspired by games like Dark Souls and Monster Hunter. Inspired by souls-like combat, timing, stamina management, and learning enemy patterns will be crucial.

Early reviews for the game are mostly positive so far and it looks like many of us will have “No Rest” when the game releases on April 18.
