There is an amazing lineup of new games arriving in July… and we’re still busy saving Blackwood from the jaws of Oblivion! Many of the games below have probably been on your calendars for quite some time now, so let’s get right into it.
If you have a specific game in mind, you can always find deals on upcoming titles via the Coming Soon section of the CDKeys store.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin
9th July – PC, Nintendo Switch
Capcom’s new turn-based RPG is a fantastic combination of the addictive grind of Pokemon and the quirky adventure of Monster Hunter. Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is the second entry in the series and an all-new story featuring a legendary Rider, a Wyverian girl, and a destructive power unleashed upon the world.
As Capcom explains, you’ll embark on a journey “which will test the bonds of friendship in a changing world, and discover the truth behind the legends of old.” Learn more on the store page linked below:
16th July – PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC
F1 2021 is almost here (even sooner with the Deluxe Edition), and according to developer Codemasters it will be “the most immersive F1 experience ever.”
Prepare yourself for an intense combination of on and off-the-track moments and the debut of the all-new story mode “Braking Point.” Whether playing solo or cooperatively with a friend, you can customise the entire experience with more options than ever; something that Codemasters explains was designed for both “those new to the franchise and seasoned veterans.”
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD
16th July – Nintendo Switch
Breath of the Wild 2 is indeed coming soon… and until then, there’s another HD remake of a Zelda classic to tide you over. 2021 marks the 35th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda series, and Nintendo will celebrate with a remake of 2011’s Skyward Sword. Originally released for the Wii, this new version of Skyward Sword will feature updated graphics, bespoke Joy-Con controls, and other features detailed in the trailer here.
If it’s anything like Link’s Awakening, the last Zelda remake to arrive on Switch, it’ll definitely be a must-play.
29th July – Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC
In a dystopian, cyberpunk-themed future, the mega corporation that controls you (and everyone else) has just collapsed. Now the question is– can you survive without it?
The Ascent is a new isometric action-RPG the Eurogamer describes as “what you get when a group of veteran developers makes whatever they want.” You might also call it Diablo 2077…
Start from the bottom, and rise to the top on your own or with up to three friends in local/online co-op. You can also play it with Xbox Game Pass (for console or PC) on day one.
While not entirely new games, July is bringing 3 game-sized expansions to 3 very popular titles.
Watch Dogs Legion: Bloodline
First up is “Bloodline”. The protagonist from the first Watch Dogs, Aiden Pearce, will return in the upcoming expansion for Watch Dogs: Legion!
Available as part of Legion’s season pass, Bloodline is set before the events of the main game, and sees Pearce meet up with Wrench (and his nephew Jackson) in London. “Caught between a powerful military robotics corporation and a returning DedSec member with an opposing agenda, Aiden must rely on his grit and experience to navigate a hostile city, try to outmaneuver his enemies, and keep his family intact.”
Fallout 76: Steel Reign
Next, the latest update for 76 will arrive in July, and boy is it a big one. This eighth major update for Bethesda’s popular online RPG will feature the conclusion to the Brotherhood of Steel storyline, legendary power armor, and a new legendary item crafting system!
Total War: Warhammer 2 – The Silence & The Fury
As the final DLC for Total War: Warhammer 2, The Silence and the Fury expansion will add two new Legendary Lords to the game! Each will lead either the Lizardmen or Beastmen, and new units, characters, narrative objectives, and features are included as well in the DLC. Find out more details on the store page below.
