Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate blends the long-running Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors franchises, bringing characters from both series together to take down Orochi, the Serpent King. The game features over 120 playable characters and has a free, open mix-and-match party systems so that you can carve up your foes any way you want. And then there’s WWE 2K16, the latest and most diverse entry in the WWE video game series. Containing over 120 Superstars and Legends, you can enjoy the return of the story and MyCAREER modes, where your actions influence your personality, your alliances and your rivalries.
In Spelunky, available from August 1-15, players will dive underground in the hit indie platformer that allows you to blast through rocks to find your shortcuts. There’s plenty of challenges too, as you avoid traps, find loot and defeat your enemies. Each level is procedurally generated, so that the experience is new and different each time. Lastly, the critically acclaimed Beyond Good & Evil HD will be available from August 16-31. Take on the role of Jade, an investigative reporter trying to uncover a sinister government conspiracy. Armed with her camera, her wits and a retractable battle staff, Jade is assisted by Pey’j, a pig, as she tries to save the planet.
