NEW VIDEO GAME RELEASES – JULY 2017 SCHEDULE

NEW VIDEO GAME RELEASES – JULY 2017 SCHEDULE

Welcome to The Reticule’s definitive roundup of gaming releases throughout July 2017. All release dates stated are for the EU, across all currently available platforms including Playstation, Xbox, PC, mobile and others.

7th
Accel World vs. Sword Art Online
PS4, PS Vita

11th
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age
PS4

“The biggest addition to The Zodiac Age is what we missed out on with the international release years back. XII took a lot of grief for the license board, and Square Enix made vast improvements by adding distinct jobs to incentivize replayability and tactical gameplay. This means you’ll be able to make Vaan a black mage if you want (but who would ever choose Vaan, right?) or maybe you’ll make Basch into a thief so he can nab you some precious goodies. Many proselytize this version of the game, and it’s pretty amazing to finally get it on Western shores. We’re also getting a much-needed fast-forward mode like the (amazing) Dragon Quest VIII remake on 3DS, which should make some of those more tedious sojourns into danger more manageable.” RPGFan.

13th
Antihero
PC

17th
Albion Online
PC, Andriod, iOS

“Albion Online is a sandbox MMORPG set in an open medieval fantasy world. It has a fully player-driven economy; all equipment items are player-crafted. You can freely combine armor pieces and weapons in our unique classless system – you are what you wear. Explore the world and tackle challenging PvE content. Engage other adventurers in small- or large-scale PvP, and conquer territories. Gather. Craft. Trade. Conquer. Leave your mark in the world.” Albion Online.

18th
Children of Zodiarcs
PC, PS4

Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles
PC, PS4

20th
Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy
Andriod, iOS

21st
Splatoon 2
Nintendo Switch

Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star
Nintendo Switch

25th
Fallen Legion
PS4, PS Vita

Pyre
PC, PS4

“For those who played Supergiant’s previous titles, Bastion and Transistor, Pyre‘s art style and presentation will be familiar. While neither Bastion nor Transistor felt small, Supergiant claimed that Pyre ups the ante. We likened Pyre‘s team-oriented competitions to a magical version of NBA Jam. The competitions are referred to as Rites, fast-paced three-on-three battles where the goal is to take out the other team’s signal flame before they manage to extinguish yours.” Digital Trends

Redout
Nintendo Switch

“Redout is a stylish, futuristic racer bringing back the speed and vertigo of genuine arcade racing — get in the ship and slam that throttle. From the first moment, you will feel the enormous amount of power coming from your engine. Hovering a few meters above the ground going over 800 km/h is no piece of cake. Redout will take advantage of the Switch capabilities by using the right Joy-Con analog stick increase or decrease speed and left Joy-Con stick to drift around curves.” IGN

27th
The Darkside Detective
PC

28th
Hey! Pikmin
3DS

Dr Kawashima’s Devilish Brain Training: Can You Stay Focused?
3DS

Grand Theft Auto V Lands on The New Generation Tomorrow – Are You In?

Grand Theft Auto V Lands on The New Generation Tomorrow – Are You In?

Tomorrow is a big day in the world of the new generation machines. They’be both been selling by the bucketload, but apart from Halo: The Master Chief Collection and (a botched) DriveClub, they’ve been lacking on any exclusive title to set them apart with re-releases like The Last of Us Remastered making up the numbers. As we march our way through November, we are going to see if Grand Theft Auto V will bring the remaining few old-gen gamers over to the new world.

Time Anomalies And Celebrity Co-op In Assassin’s Creed Unity’s New Trailers

Time Anomalies And Celebrity Co-op In Assassin’s Creed Unity’s New Trailers

So you thought Assassin’s Creed Unity was going to be one of those games that tried to be serious and easy to follow did you? Well, think again because Ubisoft have just released two brand new trailers that throw all that out the window.

The first trailer shows the player deperatley trying to escape a time anomaly within the animus, It eventually catches up to him and he is transported to a future version of Paris with planes, machine guns and massive V adorned on the Eiffel Tower. What could it all mean? Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think.

The second trailer takes the lighthearted approach as four voice actors impersonate celebrities as they play a co-op mission within Assassin’s Creed Unity. I’m not quite sure what the point of the trailer is, but there are a few laughs to be had and the voice actors are actually very good.

Assassin’s Creed Unity Trailer Explores Revlutionary Paris

Assassin’s Creed Unity Trailer Explores Revlutionary Paris

The latest Assassin’s Creed Unity trailer shows an open world Paris with much more to offer than any of the previous games. Among new activities you can now complete co-op heist missions with friends, embark on fleshed out side quests such as murder mysteries and treasure hunt in the streets and on the rooftops of 18th century Paris.

For me the Assassin’s Creed series has been calling for something such as a co-op mode to freshen up the similar gameplay from release to release. An improved combat system, interesting setting, redesigned graphics engine and improved climbing system also reinvigorate my interests in a series I once loved.

Part 1 and 2 of the video series can be found here and here.

Assassin’s Creed Unity launches on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on November 14th 2014.

With the release still months away this new cinematic trailer begins to explore the story and setting behind one of the most impressive looking RPGs since we Fus-Ro-Dah’d our way across northern Tamriel.

The Witcher 3 launches on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in February 2015.

This new trailer shows you just how devastating traps can be in The Evil Within, but also shows how you can turn them to your advantage. Some traps can be avoided and turned on enemies, others can be dismantled and used to create stronger weapons and ammo.

Horror games. You either love them, or you hate them. Me, personally I love them.
