Welcome back to GeForce Now Thursday’s with the Cloudy team. This week focuses on the amazing people at Team 17 and their new titles coming to GFN, making their total 40 games.
Searching Team17 on GFN will bring up a myriad of titles across many genres. Escape prison in the hugely successful Escapists series (The Escapists is also the Epic Games Store free game of the week), wage war in the Western Front in the brutal Hell Let Loose, and test your faith in Blasphemous; a beautifully violent pixel art adventure set in a distant religious land with horrifying bosses and plenty of deaths. Oh, and who can forget Worms?
Games Coming This Week
5 day-and-date releases will be hitting the platform this week, including the highly-anticipated Kena: Bridge of Spirits. Alongside this, it’s time to manage survival after the apocalypse in Team17’s Sheltered 2. Want to manage your survival whilst armed to the teeth and running from a zombie horde? World War Z: Aftermath has you covered.
The apocalypse has always been a nightmare scenario, but also makes a great video game. This one, however, isn’t here to make survival easy. Manage your group of survivors and create relationships with other factions. Whether that’s a positive or negative relationship is up to you. Just remember; no respawns allowed. Decisions are life or death, so choose wisely.
“It’s been twenty years since the world as we knew it ended. The last of humanity splintered into opposing factions. Will you unite or conquer? Building upon the original 2015 fan-favourite, Sheltered 2 brings new challenges and deeper strategic gameplay. You are tasked with creating a leader and building up your faction whilst managing resources and tackling threats both natural and human. Everything from starvation and dehydration to radiation poisoning and enemy raids can prove fatal.”
Sheltered 2 is available now through Steam. We will be having a playthrough of this on our YouTube channel soon so keep your eyes peeled.
Kena: Bridge of Spirits
Become Kena; a sprit guide in search of a sacred mountain shrine. Whilst exploring a forgotten village, you’ll encounter corrupted spirits that will be ready to fight at a moments notice. Build a team of Rot to help enhance abilities, whilst also using the spirit world to uncover the secrets of the abandoned village.
“A story-driven, action adventure combining exploration with fast-paced combat. As Kena, players find and grow a team of charming spirit companions called the Rot, enhancing their abilities and creating new ways to manipulate the environment.”
Kena: Bridge of Spirits is available now through the Epic Games Store.
