Where has the year gone? Friday marks the beginning of May, and as the sun returns from its winter holiday proper, here are three single player games that’ll pull you back inside.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Developer: CD Projekt RED
Release Date: May 19th

Breathe. After months of rumour and speculation, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt comes out this month. Originally slated for release in August last year, CD Projekt RED have made all the right noises, delaying the game to add extra polish, and announcing free DLC post-launch. The little things look set to define this console generation and The Witcher 3 is no exception. Wild Hunt features dynamic beard growth, among other graphical flourishes, to give its open-world an unparalleled sense of immersion. RPG fans rejoice!

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood

Developer: MachineGames
Release Date: May 5th (Digital), May 14th (Physical)

Swedish developer MachineGames reinvigorated the Wolfenstein brand with their current-gen début. This standalone prequel to 2014’s The New Order is split into two interwoven stories, and features the same classic-FPS-style gameplay. Expect stealth, explosions and oodles of dual-wielding action in this budget-priced release.

Project CARS

Developer: Slightly Mad Studios
Release Date: May 12th

Another game pushed back to May, Project CARS was supposed to drop in November 2014, but races past the chequered flag this month. Funded by fans and staff without a traditional publisher, Project CARS carved out a niche for itself in its original, overcrowded release window as “the racing game without Troy Baker”. However, in May, this dedicated racing-sim could get a lot more attention. Project CARS’ single player career takes on a more free-form structure than some other racers. Progression is measured in driving skill rather than unlocked Ferraris; the better you are, the more you progress. Fully licensed and painstakingly recreated, the cars and tracks on offer could be enough to placate the Polyphony faithful with Gran Turismo 7 delayed until 2017.

Invisible, Inc. Screen

Invisible, Inc.’s turn based action is inspired by X-COM.

Invisible, Inc (Early Access Honourable Mention)

Developer: Klei Entertainment
Release Date: May 12th

Invisible, Inc., from Don’t Starve and Mark of the Ninja developer Klei Entertainment, comes out of early access this month. An example of early access done right, Invisible, Inc. marries rogue-lite gameplay with a killer aesthetic to deliver a turn-based tactical experience that glows like a high-tech spy watch. Players have five days to foil a plot to take down their agency, collecting intel, snuffing guards, and hacking through a series of procedurally generated missions. A PS4 version is on the cards, but no dates have been announced.
