An exciting lull…

El33tonline Feature: The Games of April 2013

Following a hectic month of weeks packed with intensely enjoyable, important and excellent games, April 2013 has lumbered along to try and catch up with March.

Can April ever hope to live up to the high standards set by its older sibling, or is the month to come doomed to live in the shadow of what is without a doubt the most exciting month of game releases in 2013?

April 2013 may not be able to match March 2013 (which certainly ranks way up there as one of the best months on record), but it’s going to try its darnedest – find out what games are expected to launch into retail and digital download destinations this month:
