Already released on the PS3 and available as a cross-buy title, you can now pick up Tour De France for the PlayStation 4.
Finally, epic battles have been distilled into equally epic card battles in Might & Magic: Duel of Champions Forgotten Wars for the PlayStation 3. Pick your favorite Might & Magic heroes, build a deck and get to the war, soldier.
