March was yet another stellar month for releases across PlayStation 5 and PS4, but with another 30-odd days now buried in the past, it's time to look ahead to the biggest and best games headed our way throughout April and May.
As has been the case all year so far, there are several titles releasing throughout the period that have us particularly intrigued. Let's jump in, shall we?
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga - 5th April
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, TT Games announced LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, and now it's almost here. There have been several LEGO Star Wars games in the past, but this one looks to seriously up the ante. Not only does it bundle together all nine mainline movies into one adventure, it boasts impressive visuals, more varied gameplay, hundreds of playable characters, and more. Fans of coloured bricks and homemade lightsabers alike will have a blast with this one.

MLB The Show 22 - 5th April
Launching on the very same day is MLB The Show 22, which will have you putting together the best team to play against others locally or online, or making progress in your career in Road to the Show. This latest entry is promising a "new and improved" Diamond Dynasty mode, a new Mini Seasons mode, and even the return of Stadium Creator should you pick up the PS5 version – sounds like this one could be a treat.
Sniper Elite 5 - 26th May
The latest instalment in Rebellion's tactical shooter series, Sniper Elite 5 takes players back to 1944 when elite marksman Karl Fairburne makes contact with the French Resistance. Upon discovering a secret Nazi project that could cause devasation, you'll need to fight your way through real-world locations in what the developer is calling the series' "most immersive maps yet". Fans of the series will know what to expect here, and we don't have long to wait for more...
