This week, the gaming landscape is set to get a few new interesting titles, including a unique twist on a futuristic vehicular sports game, a returning racing veteran, some murderous worms, and a lot more.
Release date: 7 July (PS4, PC)
First up this week is Rocket League – an arena-based, futuristic vehicle sports game that will test your driving and stunting skills like never before. Take matters into your own hands in this visceral vehicle sports game. Soar high into the air to score amazing goals, perform incredible saves using the vehicles’ acrobatic abilities, and demolish enemy players at supersonic speeds. It looks like a lot of fun and sits somewhere between Twisted Metal and FIFA, and it also features some pretty crazy weapons and vehicles.
Release date: 10 July (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
Codemasters is no stranger to the racing game genre, as the developer has been a veteran stalwart in the genre, and the acclaimed studio is giving us yet another formula one racing game, F1 2015, which should tickle to engine’s of racing fanatics for another season of high-speeds and higher-stakes. The game will use a brand new engine made almost entirely from scratch. The new engine is said to dramatically improve both screen quality and the ability of the A.I., which has been attacked by critics in the past for being unrealistic.
Skullgirls: 2nd Encore
7 July (PS4, PS Vita)
Fighting-game fans will enjoy this particular release this week. Skullgirls 2nd Encore is making its exclusive debut on the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, and this updated version of the original Skullgirls Encore includes some new features such as full voice acting in the story mode, a new challenge mode which adds some unique tasks before matches, and a survival mode to test your skill against waves of enemies.
Pneuma: Breath of Life
7 July (PS4)
Pneuma: Breath of Life forces you to think outside the box through a narrated story of self-discovery, whilst exploring the ontological mystery of the breath of life. Features award winning voice actor ‘Jay Britton’ as Pneuma. Rack your brain and progress through a series of environmental challenges that require perception, observation, and lateral thinking skills to succeed. Lift bridges, rotate platforms and move entire buildings all with the power of your mind. This game isn’t about your skill with a controller, it’s about how you perceive and analyse situations.
Worms World Party: Remastered
8 July (PC)
Worms World Party Remastered contains the same gameplay, game modes (single-player and up to six-player multiplayer), and humour from the original, but adds better visuals with an updates 1080p resolution and 60fps. It’s the same crazy, unique, wacky, outrageous, addictive and deadly (to Worms anyway) combat game for a new generation of wormy chaos, in glorious HD for extra measure.
