New video games will come as a lifeline for millions of people stuck at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, with some hefty new titles coming this month. People can choose to settle down with a single-player campaign or opt for a multiplayer for some distanced socialising. Express.co.uk brings you a guide of all the best games being released this April 2020.
Final Fantasy 7
Final Fantasy 7 is the long-awaited remake of 1997 classic RPG, announced at E3 2015.
Fans of the series have waited nearly half a decade to get their hands on the PS4 exclusive, and they finally can on April 10.
Early critics reviews suggest gamers are in for a treat, with heavy praised heaped on Square Enix’s handling of the remake.

Modern Warfare 2
Getting deja vu? It’s understandable because Modern Warfare 2 officially launched for Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2009.
However, the game received a remake a la Final Fantasy 7, and Infinity Ward released the remastered version for the PS4 on March 30.
Xbox One players will get their chance to enjoy the revitalised campaign in less than a month on April 30.
Predator: Hunting Grounds
Hunting Grounds is a multiplayer shooter which sees you play as the Predator or pitted against him as a team of paramilitary officers.
Those playing as the legendary alien can pick from a wide array of deadly tech, while paramilitary members complete their objectives.
Predator: Hunting Grounds debuts on PS4 in two weeks on April 24.
