March 2016 New PC Games To Watch For

Unlike February, March has been a dull month for PC games, in my opinion. I can only find 5 games worthy of attention, 2 of which are re-release or expansion of old games. On the bright side that does give me more time to spend on Dota 2 and Street Fighter V.

Far Cry Primal
Far Cry Primal is an action-adventure video game developed and published by Ubisoft. The game is set in the Stone Age, and revolves around the story of Takkar, who starts off as an unarmed hunter and rises to become the leader of a tribe. It was released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 23, 2016, and it was also released for Microsoft Windows on March 1, 2016.

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend
BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend was announced on September 22, 2014 for arcade release and later announced on December 16, 2014 for consoles (as Chrono Phantasma Extend). Chrono Phantasma Extend adds two additional characters: Lambda-11 (who was introduced in Continuum Shift and originally a normal mode palette swap for Nu-13's Unlimited Mode only) and Celica A. Mercury. BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma Extend was released for PC through Steam on March 2, 2016.

Tom Clancy's The Division
Tom Clancy's The Division is a third-person shooter video game developed and published by Ubisoft, with assistance from Red Storm Entertainment, for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Division is set in a dystopian New York City in the aftermath of a smallpox pandemic; the player, who is an agent of the titular Strategic Homeland Division, commonly referred to as simply "The Division", is tasked with helping to rebuild the Division's operations in Manhattan, investigating the nature of the outbreak and combating criminal activity in its wake. The Division is structured with elements of role-playing games, as well as collaborative and player versus player online multiplayer. It was announced during Ubisoft's E3 2013 press conference, and was released worldwide on 8 March 2016.

Samorost 3
Samorost 3 is a puzzle point-and-click adventure game developed by Amanita Design. It is the third video game title in the Samorost series and the sequel to Samorost 2. It is the first game in series that is full-length and with full HD graphics. The story will take place across five planets and 4 moons. The game was originally scheduled for 2015, but was later released on 24th March 2016.

Killer Instinct: Season 3
Killer Instinct is a fighting video game, the third in the Killer Instinct series, developed by Double Helix Games, Iron Galaxy Studios, Rare and Microsoft Studios under supervision of Ken Lobb, and released as a free-to-play launch game for the Xbox One in 2013. The game is a reboot of the series, though some plot elements from Killer Instinct and Killer Instinct 2 have been retained. Development of the game involves individuals with histories in fighting games on both the developmental and competitive sides. It received positive reviews for its mechanics and engine, but was criticized for its initial lack of content. A second season of characters was released between 2014 and 2015. A third season, along with a port of the game for Windows 10, was released on March 29, 2016.

[ Yes, March has been a dull month. 'Deponia Doomsday' and 'Hitman' could be added to this list but they don't really make the cut into it for me.]
