April is mostly a download-focused month, it appears. But, there are still some solid retail titles making their way to release this month. NetherRealm Studios' newest fighting game "Injustice: Gods Among us", & Deep Silver's "Dead Island: Riptide" are probably the most anticipated as far as retail goes.
On the download front - Ubisoft is releasing the final chapter of the three part episodic "Tyranny of King Washington" series for Assassin's Creed. If stabbing Templars isn't your thing, 343 Studios will have the "Castle" map pack available for Halo 4, and Dishonored will finally get it's long awaited "Knife of Dunwall" add-on as well.
(Note: if you bought the Season Pass for Assassin's Creed 3, you will be able to access "The Redemption" add-on one week earlier than the standard release date.)
And as usual, I'll be continuously updating the list as the month goes by - so feel free to PM me if I miss something. I'll also be adding a link to each game's specific forum (if available) from now on. I know it can be a bit troublesome to navigate to an individual forum, & hopefully this will help out some.
Thanks for reading & have fun.
