The July gaming schedule is looking pretty jam-packed with a healthy variety of action, mystery, and strategy to keep just about any gamer busy with something. Looking at what’s ahead for July, we’ve rounded up 5 of the most-anticipated game releases we can’t wait to get our hands on.

The First Descendant

Release date: 2 July 2024 (Xbox Series X/S | PS5 | Xbox One | PS4 | PC)

A brand-new third-person looter-shooter enters the fray this July as The First Descendant finally sees its release on consoles and PC. The game is a free-to-play title, with monetisation elements obviously involved in some areas, but it looks like a pretty comprehensive package with fast, frenetic combat, great movement, and stunning visuals with the game running on Unreal Engine 5. There’s 4-player co-op too, so you can band together with some friends to take on the game’s missions and bosses online.

Anger Foot

Release date: 11 July 2024 (PC)

Coming from South African developer Free Lives (who delivered the brilliant BroForce), Anger Foot is a first-person… kicker, of sorts, allowing you to take on the role of a super-furious vigilante crime-fighter who wants to retrieve his stolen sneakers. You have to navigate your way through various levels, kicking down doors to surprise and eliminate enemies while attempting to complete each level as quickly as possible. It looks like a hell of a lot of fun and we can’t wait to get kicking this July.

Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn

Release date: 18 July 2024 (Xbox Series X/S | PS5 | Xbox One | PS4 | PC)

Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn looks to be an interesting entry into the action-RPG genre, delivering an adventure that mixes guns, magic, and gods. You play as Nor Vanek, a member of the coalition army, who fights for humanity’s survival after a door to the afterlife has been opened. The combat looks fun and fluid, and the combination of melee weaponry with firearms should be a welcome spin to the tried-and-tested formula.

Nobody Wants to Die

Release date: 17 July 2024 (Xbox Series X/S | PS5 | PC)

A slower-paced yet equally as intriguing release is that of Nobody Wants to Die. This detective-like gorgeous-looking first-person adventure game sees you in New York in 2329. Following a near-death experience, Detective James Karra takes an off-the-books case from his chief with only the help of a young police liaison, Sara Kai, to assist him. Using time manipulation, you have to solve crimes, hunt down a killer, and uncover the dark secrets of the city’s elite.

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess

Release date: 19 July 2024 (Xbox Series X/S | PS5 | Xbox One | PS4 | PC)

Capcom has been releasing some really impressive games as of late, and one of the more unique-looking ones is Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess. The game is a Japanese-inspired, single-player action strategy game. Players take control of Soh, an acrobatic swordfighter who can slash, dodge, and take on enemies head-on. However, a spin on the genre is that you also have backup (archers, soldiers, and other warriors) that you can strategically place and order around the battlefield to help you fight.
