Vote Now for May 2017's TA Playlist Game

By Mark Delaney,
We hope our fledgling Playlist community is enjoying our debut month and its accompanied game, Alan Wake. We still have a few more weeks of stats to track and discussion to encourage, all of which you can find in the TA Playlist Hub.

While we prepare to record our first podcast to discuss everything surrounding Remedy's woodsy mystery, it's already that time to look ahead to next month's game. We've curated another four titles we hope will interest you to return or perhaps join us for the first time in the Playlist. Here's May's quartet!



The Horseman cometh. You are WAR! Caught in an epic struggle between Heaven and Hell, the legendary Horseman is left with only one option- to fight his way out. Wielding the fearsome sword Chaoseater, War must carve a bloody trail through Angels and Demons alike to uncover a dangerous that may bring about the end of mankind. EXPLORE the streets of a hell-ravaged city or ascend crumbling buildings to face horrors in the sky above. CONQUER Hell’s most terrifying monstrosities using a host of supernatural abilities and devastating combat moves. DESTROY your enemies by unleashing the unstoppable power of your Chaos Form! Darksiders. HEADS. WILL. ROLL.

Dying Light

Review Images

In Dying Light, a first-person, action survival horror game, players must use everything in their power to survive until the morning's first light in a vast open world filled with danger. During the day, players will traverse an expansive urban environment overrun by a vicious outbreak, scavenging the world for supplies and crafting weapons to defend against the growing infected population. At night, the hunter becomes the hunted, as the infected become aggressive and more dangerous. Most frightening are the predators which only appear after sundown.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Dragonborn 11/15/12 4

The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

Tomb Raider

Tomb November 5th

Armed with only the raw instincts and physical ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Tomb Raider delivers an intense and gritty story into the origins of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor.
This list includes two games that have gone free via Games with Gold as well as three games that have been remastered for Xbox One. We hope we've offered up another solid four games each worthy of the month ahead no matter which game tops the poll. Speaking of which, voting starts now and runs for a week, as always. Take your pick!
