March is almost over and another month filled with enthusiastic game releases is approaching. April 2014 promises to deliver a huge diversity of gaming genres and cross-platform titles. Innovation and creativity won’t be forgotten in most of the next-gen release this month. And even if April doesn’t include many AAA releases, there’s still plenty to explore and enjoy.
Here’s an extensive list of the best games coming in April 2014:
The Elder Scrolls universe is finally embracing the MMO world. The wonders of exploration and role-playing from the original series will allow players to experience the real essence of Elder Scrolls in a cross-platform online game. The expectations towards this MMORPG are tremendous but not everything is remarkably appealing, the monthly subscription and the lack of original features have been diving the public opinion. Still, it’s surely the most anticipated release of April 2014. Check it out here.
