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

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

Clandestine – Early Access Preview

Clandestine – Early Access Preview

Clandestine is a stealth action game currently in the Early Access program on Steam. It’s developers Logic Artists aim to bring the genre back to it’s routes by doing away with the all too common feeling that your character is some kind of all powerful hero with every possible resource at their disposal to get the job done. Instead Clandestine is best played in co-op with one player taking on the roll of the spy and one the hacker.

The spy is the operative on the field doing the dirty work. Dispatching guards, picking up intel and traversing the maps like a stealthy ninja with a gun. While the hacker has no on field activities and instead has the job of supporting the spy using their various different cyber skill for things like unlocking security doors and disabling cameras.

I’ve put together a short video below that better explains the overall gameplay in Clandestine and what I feel are the good and bad points about the game.

So as you can see from the above footage, while Clandestine looks promising there are still a few changes that need to be implemented before the games full release. Remember this game is currently in Steam’s Early Access program that means many changes could be made before the official release.

Clandestine‘s release date hasn’t been set yet but if you like what you see and want to buy into the early access version on Steam, you can do so here.
