April is almost upon us, and that can only mean one thing... GOD OF WAR! YES! But no! Not just God of War! April 2018 may not be the most stacked month that the PlayStation 4's ever had, but there are still several titles (yes, including God of War) that we'd like to turn your attention towards. Let's dive right in.

Minit

Publisher: Devolver Digital
Developer: Various
Release date: 3rd April, 2018

It may not look like much, but Minit has a pretty unique twist on the regular action adventure. The sword you carry curses you with a one-minute lifespan, meaning you can only explore the map, defeat enemies, and solve puzzles sixty seconds at a time. It's up to you to figure out how to best make use of your limited time in order to progress. Its tongue-in-cheek humour and simplistic looks afford the game an easy-going charm, and it looks to be another interesting curiosity from Devolver Digital.

Extinction

Publisher: Iron Galaxy
Developer: Panic Button Games
Release date: 10th April, 2018

A somewhat under-the-radar action game that sees you chop the limbs off giant trolls, Extinction looks slick and satisfying in the gameplay that we've seen so far. The premise is simple: sword in hand, save civilisation from colossal creatures in a very over-the-top kind of way. Good old fashioned video game fun? Here's hoping.

Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs - Royal Edition

Publisher: Crunching Koalas
Developer: Pixelated Milk
Release date: 10th April, 2018

A character-driven strategy RPG with a sense of humour, Regalia was a hit on PC back when it launched in 2017, and now it's coming to PS4. You can expect quirky characters and some player choice sprinkled between bouts of tactical combat. A colourful and attractive art style tops the whole thing off.

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life (PS4 Exclusive)

Publisher: SEGA
Developer: SEGA
Release date: 17th April, 2018

Wait a minute, we've already reviewed Yakuza 6: The Song of Life... And it's bloody brilliant! There's no hesitation on this one, then -- we can't recommend the final chapter of Kazuma Kiryu's adventure enough. It's got a refined combat system, a story that'll keep you glued to the screen, and some of the best characters you'll find on PlayStation. Oh, and the whole thing runs on the all-new Dragon Engine. This is next-gen Yakuza, and it's amazing. Get it bought.

god of war.jpg

God of War (PS4 Exclusive)

Publisher: Sony
Developer: Sony Santa Monica Studio
Release date: 20th April, 2018

He's back and he's... Well, he's not quite as angry, but he's still eager to bust some skulls and hit monsters with a big bloody axe. That's right, it's everybody's favourite beard -- we mean, everybody's favourite whirlwind of destruction -- Kratos! What's left to say about God of War other than it continues to look superb? The overhauled combat looks super satisfying, the visuals look outrageous, and at this point, we just want to play it. We already know that this one's going to gobble up the votes in our poll.

The Swords of Ditto (PS4 Console Exclusive)

Publisher: Devolver Digital
Developer: onebitbeyond
Release date: 24th April, 2018

This upcoming action RPG from Devolver Digital has a lot going for it. It's a co-op adventure that sees you and a friend taking on procedurally generated dungeons in a bid to lifting an ancient curse. Each attempt to defeat the evil Mormo is unique, with brand new heroes each generation braving the quest. Your success or failure will secure the fate of the island for the next 100 years, and will change the environment appropriately. This excellent concept, along with a wonderful Saturday morning cartoon presentation, secures The Swords of Ditto as one of April's more intriguing titles.
