18th century, North America. Amidst the chaos and violence of the French and Indian War, Shay Patrick Cormac, a fearless young member of the Brotherhood of Assassins, undergoes a dark transformation that will forever shape the future of the American colonies. After a dangerous mission gone tragically wrong, Shay turns his back on the Assassins who, in response, attempt to end his life.

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue is the darkest chapter in the Assassin’s Creed franchise yet. Follow your own creed and set off on an extraordinary journey through New York City, the wild river valley, and far away to the icy cold waters of the North Atlantic in pursuit of your ultimate goal — bringing down the Assassins for good. For the first time ever, experience the Assassin’s Creed universe from the perspective of a Templar. The acclaimed naval components from previous Assassin’s Creed games have been enhanced in Assassin’s Creed Rogue. The game also gives players new weapons to use on both land and sea in pursuit of taking down the Assassins, including a new ship called the Morrigan.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Release Date: Tuesday, March 20, 2018

  • See it on Amazon for $19.96 (Blu-ray)

From our Review: It’s never easy to try and inject new life into an already popular, well-established property, especially when that property also happens to be Jumanji. Many fans then have been looking towards Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle — this year’s long-gap followup to the beloved, Robin Williams-led 1995 film adaptation of Chris Van Allsburg’s children’s book — with skeptical eyes. Fortunately, Welcome to the Jungle manages to (mostly) maintain the quirky humor and fun of the previous film, while reintroducing the property to a whole new generation.

Pitch Perfect 3

Release Date: Tuesday, March 20, 2018

  • See it on Amazon for $19.96 (Blu-ray)

From our Review: When Pitch Perfect hit theaters five years ago it was riding a wave of singing-related TV shows, YouTubers doing Acapella covers and mined the vein of raucous comedies with feisty female comedies but it still felt fresh. Pitch Perfect 2 tweaked and expanded the elements of the first film, added some new faces but it still worked well enough and felt like a progression. Pitch Perfect 3 has many of the same components from the first two films but plays around with the formula too much and hits too many bum notes.

Downsizing

Release Date: Tuesday, March 20, 2018

  • See it on Amazon for $19.96 (Blu-ray)

From our Review: So here’s the deal: the world is ending, overpopulation is unsustainable, non-replenishable resources are dwindling, and eventually we’re all going to die. I guess we might as well shrink ourselves, right?

  • Downloadable on PS4, Xbox One, iOS or Android

Attack on Titan 2

Release Date: Tuesday, March 20, 2018

  • See it on Amazon for $47.99 with Prime (PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch)

From our Review: With its first Attack on Titan game in 2016, developer Omega Force laid down a rough but promising groundwork for what a game based around the anime phenomenon should be: fast-paced and thrilling aerial battles against gargantuan Titans with a unique control scheme that allows you to zip around effortlessly using Omni-Directional Mobility Gear. Attack on Titan 2 builds upon that foundation with a much-improved interface and some cool new tricks to slice the napes of a Titan in fun and extravagant ways. But the sharp edge of this sequel is dulled a bit by an all too familiar story mode hamstrung by plodding pacing.
