The Week In Games: Zombies and Tactical Opportunities

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

I hope you like zombies, because there’s a lot of opportunities for attacking zombies in the next week. On the road, in a dungeon, and in a war! You could also choose to get tactical or become a space detective.

This is a jam-packed week depending on what kind of games you enjoy. Death Road to Canada’s strategy-combat experience is coming to a lot of platforms, and if you’re not into that you could try your hand at a Destiny 2 expansion that, and I’m just guessing here, but probably has you shooting aliens or something.


If neither of those things get you excited, there are two major releases for the tactically inclined among us, with Darkest Dungeon for PS4 and Pillars of Eternity II, and I’m imagining that both of those game are going to really deliver for the “let’s pause the game and consider this turn for the next five minutes” players among us. I’m definitely one of those players.

So, without chattering any further, here’s the week in games:
