Our top pick coming out this week!

The Blackout Club 
30/07/2019

We love a bit of Co-Op gaming at Checkpoint and we certainly love something a little spooky that gets our hear racing, so this one seems right up our alley.

We can imagine heaps of hectic sessions in this small town mystery and if the early access reviews are anything to go by they’ll release will be solid.
