While there’s never a shortage of intriguing video games on the market, we’ve got the round up of the most hotly anticipated upcoming releases. Between movie tie-ins, like Guardians of the Galaxy, to old stand-bys, like “Mario Kart,” the industry continues to impress with bold story lines, breathtaking graphics and addicting virtual realities.

In April, we see the release of games like “Outlast II,” the successor to the surprise horror-hit “Outlast,” this time set in the Arizona desert as you investigate a murder. For PC, there’s the hotly anticipated “Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III,” which is finally returning over a decade after the original.

In May, indie-shooter game “Strafe” finally sees its release, after well surpassing its Kickstarter goal. And DC pulls out its big guns with “Injustice 2,” which includes all their big-name heroes and villains, with a twist — you can now personalize them.
