This is the second month of summer, which brings us closer to autumn, and makes every minute of it valuable. This means that you probably don’t want to waste July on dull games and are eager to try freshly released newcomers. This July brings us an excellent list of games. Let’s check it.
Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers
Date of release: July, 2.
Platforms: PC and PS4.
This is the third extension of Final Fantasy, and apparently not the last one. This game does not need any introductions, as everyone knows and played at least one of its editions. This time, developers brought some new features into the Final Fantasy, adding two more raids and 9 dungeons. By the way, one of these raids is made in the style of Nier Automata. There are two new jobs like Dancer and Gunbreaker, and extra races, as well. One of them is bunny-like Viera, and another is similar to tiger Hrothgar.
Sea of Solitude
Date of release: July, 5.
Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4.
Sea of Solitude is a great example of a perfect indie game, full of adventures and hidden meanings. Developers decided to send the message and talk about mental illness in the game. While Kay, the main character, is turning into a monster, you can’t help but think about the problems around you. Dive deeper into the sea of non-stop adventures and inner thoughts. And the graphics are just amazing!
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order
Date of release: July, 19.
Do you want to feel yourself a part of Avengers team or possibly one of Guardians of the Galaxy? Before you say yes, remember that stakes are high, and evil monsters like Thanos are waiting to defeat you. Ultimate Alliance game takes place in another universe but still offers your favorite characters to play with. At the time when Thanos is gathering the Black Order to attack the world, you need to increase your own powers and fight it back. Now you can call X-Men and Marvel Knights for help.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses
Date of release: July, 26.
Here is another Switch game that is coming in July. Three Houses is a fifteenth game in the series of Fire Emblem. Similar to Ultimate Alliance, Fire Emblem: Three Houses concentrates on the beauty of combat. However, this time, you will be able to enjoy the combat arts in all their glory. The game definitely prefers it to anything else. Still, graphics seem well-developed, and you probably will have a chance to explore a new world, the beautiful Fodlan continent with three nations that constantly fight with each other. But the main actions will happen either on the battlefield or at the training arena where you will teach aristocratic children how to fight.
Date of release: July, 26.
Platforms: Switch, PC, Xbox One, PS4.
This time you will fight the Nazi menace together with twin daughters of BJ Blazkowicz, our favorite character in Wolfenstein. While Blazkowicz himself is lost somewhere in Paris, his daughters join French Resistance. They hope to find their father this way. There is a co-op mode, so you and your friend can play together, taking control of these young women. The new version keeps a similar atmosphere as it was in the previous part of the game. You will appreciate the variety of weapons. So, if you want something new but with your favorite characters, this game is for you.
