1. Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 1
PS4 & Xbox One (08/02)
This game is more than just running around and beating up thugs. You get to play as both the Caped Crusader and Bruce Wayne through fast action and dialogue choices. This first episode can be a bit expository, but it’s setting up the world in which Bruce Wayne juggles his life being a nighttime vigilante. Telltale is able to delve into Bruce’s personal side with this episodic series. You’ll play as both Bruce Wayne and Batman, fighting criminals, solving mysteries, and dealing with day-to-day situations that only Bruce Wayne seems to get himself into. Because you’re in control of his dialogue and actions, your choices will affect gameplay. Batman: The Telltale Series will create a unique storyline tailored to your preferences.
Abzû is a third-person adventure game from indie developer, Giant Squid Studios. Its stunning art style and graphics gives the game a distinct tone and form. This has helped the game stand out since it premiered at E3 2014. In the game, you are a diver exploring the deep-sea life and environment. It’s quite a unique world that you get to discover and interact with. It is certified that the cinematic and striking visual effects and/or the premise of the story will get you hooked.
3. No Man’s Sky
No Man’s Sky is an action-adventure sci-fi game. Unlike the aforementioned games, this one has a pretty extensive story and universe. Footage from the highly-anticipated No Man’s Sky has already been leaked, and reports have surfaced indicating that a copy has been sold online weeks prior to the release. In this space exploration game, you get to explore uncharted planets while having the ability to interact with other players in the shared universe. As an added bonus, you can also collect and upgrade your gear. So with all this hype, why not grab a copy and see for yourself?
