Top New Games Out This Week On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC — March 18-24

This week’s biggest games are all about working together. In Sea of Thieves, you and your pals can run your very own pirate ship. In Attack on Titan 2, you can team up to take down the titular titans. And in A Way Out, your only path out of prison is playing cooperatively. On the single-player side, you can solve cases with everyone’s favorite electric mouse in Detective Pikachu, or save the world in Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom.

Sea of Thieves — March 20

Available on: Xbox One, PC

If I tell you that Sea of Thieves is all about gathering a pirate crew with your friends, you can probably figure the rest out: you can explore a massive ocean, run a tight ship, battle other crews, search for buried treasure, and so much more. You might even run into a kraken or two.

Maybe your crew would rather defend your hometown from giant, people-eating freaks. This follow-up smash-hit anime game picks up right after the first, and this time you’ll be able to play the whole thing in co-op, or take on the challenge alone with new co-op characters.

A Way Out is a forced co-op game–one player controls Leo, the other controls Vincent–where your goal is to escape prison. In practice, this means one of you can be stuck in a cutscene while the other explores or approach a situation from multiple vantage points.
