Own a PlayStation 4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One S, Xbox One X, Nintendo Switch or gaming PC and looking for something new to play? You're in luck.

This is where we round-up some of the biggest releases available right now, that you can buy for your respective console or computer.

Some have been released this week, others in the last few. All are well-worth checking out.

Far Cry 5

If you have played Far Cry 4 you will find little new in the fifth instalment of the long running FPS series. However, it is still a great open world romp and there is plenty to do to keep you busy for weeks.

Cult leader Joseph Seed and his family have taken control over Hope County Montana in the first Far Cry set on US soil and it is up to you, as a customisable deputy sheriff, to free the local population from their grasp.

There are plenty of missions, side missions, puzzles and collectables scattered around one of the biggest open world maps in the franchise, plus aeroplanes and helicopters to fly for the first time. It's a splendid triple-A game to while away the Easter holidays with.

Sea of Thieves

Rare's multiplayer online game is ambitious in scope and offers something quite different to anything we've played before.

You can either start the game as part of a crew involving other players or solo - although the latter is a lot harder as manning a ship on your tod is a tricky task. You then sail the seven seas undertaking tasks, finding treasure and generally doing all manner of piratey shenanigans.

The game has all of Rare's hallmark traits, with cute, cartoony graphics but, sometimes, adult humour and themes. While the gameplay is clever yet simple to grasp.

If you have Xbox Game Pass you even get the game for free as part of your subscription. You can't get (sea)farer than that.

Kirby Star Allies

Kirby hits the Switch at last in a real blast from the past.

A cute and cuddly platform adventure, much like the SNES games of yore, Kirby Star Allies not only puts you in the shoes of the wee pink ball o'fun, you can invite three friends to join in too.

That's because you meet other characters on your travels to join your platform-hopping gang, each of which with their own unique abilities, and they can either be computer-controlled or played by chums.

There are puzzles along the way that even require each ally's powers in combination, so you should choose which character joins you carefully. But beyond that, it's a simple, pretty affair that will delight kids just as much as it does their parents.

Surviving Mars

If you're a sucker for city building simulation games Surviving Mars should be on your hitlist. Developed by Haemimont Games, the studio behind the successful Tropico series, it offers a challenging and fun experience for console and PC gamers alike.

You have to build a colony on Mars, while achieving different mission goals, and that tends to be trickier than ensuring waste pipes are laid properly in Sim City, for example. Mars is an inhospitable environment to settle on, so surviving is no mean feat. Colonists will drop like flies when you first start, but once you have the hang of what you need inside the domes you place on the surface, you'll soon construct thriving communities.

Well, until another disaster hits, of course.

There is plenty of micromanagement to be kept an eye on, and you'll find the game is slightly easier to manipulate on a PC with a mouse than PS4 or Xbox One with a controller, but all formats have plenty to offer, with the promise of expansive DLC down the line.

Scribblenauts Showdown

Scribblenauts is back and the series hits PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch for the first time, although it's not what you might have been expecting if you've played any previous games in the series.

Instead, it's a party game for up to four players with 25 mini-games of varying types. There is a versus mode for two-player action or, if you're on your own, you can play against the computer. A sandbox mode is included for more free-flowing gameplay. And there's the eponymous Showdown board game, that can be played with up to four players. The latter can also be played solo against a computer opponent.

What most of the mini-games have in common is that you get to create the items you'll use in them. This is sometimes done before the game starts, with a letter entry system enabling you to spell out the item. Another other gameplay type is "speedy", which doesn't require word entry at all and uses the controller in various ways to play quick and simple time-based games.

It might not be the Scribblenauts experience you were hoping for, but Showdown is a fun social game for all the family. And there are few of those around these days.
