New video games out this week:
“Lego Worlds.” Lego’s delayed, late-to-the-game take on “Minecraft” is an open-world building game made up entirely of digital bricks. Helicopters, dragons and gorillas are part of the mix, but don’t expect a pop-culture mashup similar to “Lego Dimensions” or the “The Lego Batman Movie”: there are no current plans to include licensed characters in this game. Rated E-10+ for Everyone 10 and Older. $30 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
“Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands.” The military shooter is set in an open world Bolivia and, as with past “Ghost Recon” games, focuses on stealth and tactics. You must take down a cartel in solo or co-op game modes. Rated M for Mature. $60, for Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC.
Also out this week: “WRC 6” (Xbox One, PS4, PC), “Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3” (Xbox One, PC), “Infektor” (PC), “Nier: Automata” (PS4), “Loot Rascals” (PC), “Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey” (PS4, PC, PlayStation Vita), “Lightspeed Frontier” (PC), “Switch” (PC), “The Hunter: Call of the Wild” (PC), “Ghost Blade HD” (PC), “Space Jammers” (PC), “The Filmmaker: A Text Adventure” (PC), “Blaster Master Zero” (Nintendo 3DS), “64.0” (PC), “Streets of Rogue” (PC), “2Dark” (PS4, Xbox One), “Table Top Racing: World Tour” (Xbox One).
