Another month, another batch of exciting video games to look forward to playing.

Here are the best looking games coming this month.

Gran Turismo 7

PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5

What is it? Gran Turismo isn’t just one of the biggest racing game franchises of all time, it’s arguably one of the biggest gaming franchises full stop.

The long-awaited seventh instalment of the franchise brings the 25-year old series to the latest generation of games consoles, with over 400 vehicles from more than 60 automotive brands to choose from, and 34 locations around the world on which to race.

The races that take place on those tracks are sure to be dynamic too, with Gran Turismo 7 replicating the real-world climates of its virtual locations, with cloud formation and weather patterns that are realistic to their settings and ever-changing.

WWE 2K22

PC, PlayStation, Xbox

What is it? 2020’s instalment of the annual series of wrestling games was so badly broken at launch, that 2021 came and went without a WWE title.

That’s given the developers the extra time needed to revamp the franchise, hoping that this year’s game will fare much better.

Expect updated visuals and gameplay mechanics, and (hopefully) an exciting recreation of WWE’s over-the-top pro-wrestling action.

Grand Theft Auto V

PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S

What is it? Grand Theft Auto V was released almost 10 years ago, but remains a popular proposition regularly cropping up in sales charts almost a decade after its debut.

In March, it gets a re-release on current generation consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, with updated visuals making use of the added technological grunt of those machines.

Higher resolutions will give the game a sharper image, while ray traced reflections will make your murderous Los Santos rampages look all the more realistic.

PC, Xbox

What is it? If the crime-filled destruction of GTA isn’t your bag, you’ll want to check out Tunic, a charming looking game that has been years in the making, but finally sees its release this month.

You play as a cutesy anthropomorphic fox in a game very much inspired by classic Legend of Zelda games.

The twist here is that the game is initially presented in an unknown language, with only hints at what everything could mean helping you along.
