Now that we’ve had a week’s break, August is properly ramping up. Console fans will get a treat with the release of Hades this week, but there’s a ton of really interesting games worth checking on.
If you like things competitive, the samurai-themed Naraka Bladepoint is finally launching this week. There’s the hugely stylised cyberpunk adventure FORECLOSED, which blends elements of a graphic novel and Deus Ex together in a cool looking way. There’s the console release of the super chill art of rally, which is also hitting Game Pass, and The Plane Effect which has Quite The Vibe.
It’s a big week for early August. Here’s the leaderboard:
