March had plenty of big gaming releases including Tom Clancy’s The Division, Hitman and Black Desert Online.
The March releases are still keeping me busy but I can’t wait to get stuck into this months releases. The line-up for April is strong making it hard to decide which games to buy.
Luckily I’m here to lend a hand. I’ve picked my top 10 of the bigger releases that will be coming to console and PC during April.
Please note that the dates mentioned are the currently expected UK release dates and subject to change, dates for other regions may vary.

The spellcrafting system uses eight sigil powers to deliver thousands of spells that you can create based on your own playing style.
