April 2016 New PC Games To Watch For

Like March, April also has been a quiet month. So, my April list also features 5 titles. But this time some of these are very highly anticipated and should be on the end of the year list as well.

Quantum Break
Quantum Break is an action-adventure science fiction third-person shooter video game developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by Microsoft Studios. Directed by Sam Lake and Mikael Kasurinen, the game features Jack Joyce, the main protagonist, trying to stop Paul Serene, a close friend and Monarch Solutions CEO, from enforcing the End of Time after a failed time-machine experiment, which gives Jack time manipulation powers. Quantum Break is mostly a third-person shooter, but includes elements of a platform game in less action-oriented segments, and "junction points" that interact with the game's outcome, much like a gamebook, with episodes of an integrated live-action television show, featuring the actual actors of the characters, interacting with the player's choices, displaying the outcome of the choices made. The game was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows and Xbox One on 5 April 2016.

Dark Souls III
Dark Souls III is an action role-playing video game developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. The fourth entry in the Souls series, Dark Souls III was released in Japan in March 2016, and worldwide in April 2016.

Final Fantasy IX
Final Fantasy IX is a role-playing video game developed and published by Square. Originally released in 2000, it is the ninth title in the Final Fantasy series and last to debut on the original PlayStation console.Final Fantasy IX's plot centers on a war between nations. Players follow a young thief named Zidane Tribal, who joins with others to defeat Queen Brahne of Alexandria, the one responsible for starting the war. The plot shifts, however, when the characters realise that Brahne is working with an even more threatening person called Kuja. A port for Microsoft Windows was released in 14 April 2016.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair
Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is a visual novel adventure video game developed by Spike Chunsoft. It is the second installment in the Danganronpa series, and a direct sequel to the 2010 game Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. It was first released in Japan for the PlayStation Portable on July 26, 2012. The story follows a group of high school students who are trapped on an island by their high school's headmaster Monokuma, a sentient stuffed bear. In order to leave the island, a student must kill one of their peers, and not be caught in the subsequent investigation and trial. A port for Microsoft Windows was released on April 18, 2016.

The Banner Saga 2
The Banner Saga 2 is a tactical role-playing video game developed by Stoic and published by Versus Evil. It is a sequel to The Banner Saga. The game was released for Microsoft Windows and OS X on April 19, 2016, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions due later.

[The real hotshots of this list are 'Dark Souls II' and 'The Banner Saga 2', these two happens to be among the most anticipated games of the year and the responses all around the web does make them seem to be contenders on the end of year lists too.]
