KEY POINTS

 

July has been historically a slow month for gaming. Together with August, it’s known as a silent month before game releases start picking up steam during the nearest months to the holiday season. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t noteworthy titles coming out this month.

According to Gamespot, there are a few titles worth listing down that are coming out this month. Included in these game releases are the “Ghost of Tsushima” and “Death Stranding,” both big titles that are coming to PlayStation 4 and PC, respectively. Nintendo is also receiving some exclusives, namely “Deadly Premonition” and a new game in the “Paper Mario” franchise.

In the coming days, the Xbox will also receive a few more games in “Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2,” “F1 2020,” “Destroy All Humans! Remastered, and “Fairy Tail.” These are only a few of 2020’s games, which are coming out in mid-year, but some – like “Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon” – are surprise favorites that players cannot miss.

For the other games coming out this year, there are big titles that are coming out just before the PlayStation 5 and Series X’s launch. Players have already been rewarded with the “FFVII Remake” and “The Last of Us Part II.” It has critics saying that 2020 is turning out to be a record year for gaming, IGN reported.

September appears to be the next big month in gaming as Square Enix’ “Marvel’s Avengers” and “Cyberpunk 2077” will be arriving. Players will get to see Square Enix’ treatment of the popular heroes, while people will be able to try out what many are expecting to be CD Projekt Red’s next big project after “The Witcher: Wild Hunt.”

There is nothing set in stone just yet on the games that are listed. There are releases that could be planned for earlier dates, while there are other games that may arrive later, in time with the Series X and PS5’s respective releases. This year also marks the end of another console generation – that of the PS4 and the Xbox One.
