Volume PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Everybody's gone to the graveyard in this latest edition of Out This Week. Between the long-awaited PlayStation Vita port of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 and the not-so anticipated PlayStation 4 port of Wii U exclusive Zombi, there's a little something for every undead obsessed gamer. Alternatively, you could just get Volume.

Pick of the Week: Volume

The latest title from Thomas Was Alone developer Mike Bithell does away with coloured shapes and replaces them with, well, neon ones instead. We're being facetious, of course, as there's actually a lot more to this game than its Metal Gear Solid VR-esque environments. A stealth title loosely inspired by Robin Hood legend, you'll play as Robert Locksley, a petty thief who happens upon a mysterious device which can be used to simulate heists.

Here's where it gets interesting, though: Locksley uses the so-called 'Volume' to broadcast simulations of high-profile crimes on the Internet, in a similar manner to Let's Play videos. Of course, he happens upon resistance along the way, including Andy Serkis' portrayal of Guy of Gisbourne, who's re-imagined here as a CEO whose company has taken control of all of England. This is a game about more than shapes, then, we suppose.
