Games and TV shows to watch out
The Crew 2
After The Crew was run off the road by critics who were rightly annoyed by the microtransactions stuffed into the game, and the online-only play, Ubisoft went back to the garage to tune up its racer for a sequel. It’s still online-only, but what we have now is a far more user-friendly racer that still takes in the length and breadth of the United States, but now it all feels worthwhile. While there’s a loose story about climbing the ladder of the fictitious sport, players now get the chance to explore more of the digitally recreated US rather than being funnelled down a linear path. With a new sense of freedom you can zip past recognisable landmarks (hi, Mount Rushmore!) in planes, boats or a range of suitably flash cars. You can even slide into the cockpit of a Team Red Bull F1 car, if you like. It looks like The Crew 2 will bring the series back on track. And with a summer lull in games in full effect, we’re glad that we have at least one blockbuster to enjoy right now.

Donkey Kong Adventure DLC
This meaty expansion for the excellent Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle introduces Cranky Kong and Donkey Kong into the mix. Ubisoft has built a completely new experience around the big apes skill set. So much so that this DLC feels like a brand-new game.
Nintendo Switch, out now.
