[Games Around the Corner] Week 16, 2022 - Mercenaries, Darth Vader, and Nuclear Disaster

Chernobylite's Igor is back and this week he'll be on his journey to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Also, a new turn-based tactical RPG and an entry of The Force Unleashed multimedia project by LucasArts will be released.

The Iron Oath

Developed by Curious Panda Games, players assume the role of the leader of a mercenary company in The Iron Oath. Hire recruits, manage your operations, and embark on missions to survive and build your company's renown. Players need to be strategic about their planning as years pass as you navigate the world, and members will age, retire, and die. Players need to adapt to the shift to keep their company thriving.

The Iron Oath will launch on Steam on 19 April.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

"You are Starkiller, Darth Vader’s secret apprentice, who has been trained to hunt down and destroy the Jedi. Take advantage of devastating Force powers and lightsaber combos to do Darth Vader’s bidding. Similar to the 2008 release on the Nintendo Wii, use the Nintendo Joy-Con motion controls to truly feel the destructive power of the Force or challenge a friend to a 1v1 in the local multiplayer Duel mode!" the game overview reads.

For Switch, there will be Standard Edition, Premium Edition, and Master Edition. Switch players can contol Force powers and use lightsaber combos (as in the original game) using the Joy-Con's optional motion controls. There will be a local mutliplayer duel mode for you to challenge a friend and choose from 27 available characters.

An enhanced remaster version of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will release a Switch version on 20 April.


Set in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, players will be a physicist called Igor Khymynuk going in search for his fiancée in the radioactive wasteland. Players must gather supplies and ools while they encounter "Stalkers" and hostile military personnel in the disaster zone. Craft gadgets, traps, and weapons in the workstations. Finally, players need to make their choices wisely because each decision will affect the ending of the story.

First released in 2021, Chernobylite will arrive on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on 21 April.
