Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 4 is the latest incarnation of Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship videogames that allows the player to relive the 2020 season. Like its predecessors, it is developed by Italian racing game experts at Milestone.
The revised Career Mode takes the player on a path from Futures to Pro and allows them to grow their talent via the new skill tree. The Track Editor has been upgraded with new customization options, and a new Compound inspired by the Maine Islands has been added, in which the player can race or free roam alone or in co-op.
The Colombian developers at Dreams Uncorporated and SYCK call Cris Tales a “love letter to classic JRPGs”. Players take on the role of a newly awakened Time Mage Crisbell, who must prevent the Empress from bringing about a cataclysm that would destroy the four Kingdoms of the region. Crisbell embarks on a journey across the Kingdoms, recruiting allies and mastering their abilities as well as hers.
Crisbell’s unique Time Magic allows her to peer into the past and future of those she meets, and even utilize her power in Cris Tales‘ classic turn-based combat. For instance, she may send a poisoned enemy into the future and thus deal all the tick damage in one go.
Back 4 Blood is a first-person co-op shooter developed by Turtle Rock and published by WB Games. As a spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead, it shares many similarities with the acclaimed series. Up to four players join forces to eradicate the Ridden, once-human hosts of a deadly parasite eager to devour what’s left of humanity.
The game implements a roguelike card system that modifies the experience and enhances replayability. In addition to the narrative campaign, Back 4 Blood offers competitive multiplayer where the player can take on the role of a Cleaner, one of the immune survivors, or the Ridden, each with their unique abilities and weapons.
Persona 5 Strikers continues the story of Joker and the Phantom Thieves but centers around a new incident, allowing new players to enjoy the game without having played Persona 5. During their summer vacation, a ruthless Kyoto detective recruits the Phantom Thieves to investigate a series of strange cases occurring across Japan. The gang will travel to 6 different cities, helping those in need and fighting the Shadows to uncover the source of the corruption.
The spin-off is co-developed by Atlus’ P-Studio and Omega Force, and combines the hack-and-slash battles of the Dynasty Warriors series with the tactical usage of Personas. The Western release includes English and Japanese voice acting and numerous subtitle options.
Riders Republic is an open-world extreme sports game in which players ski, snowboard, bike, and wingsuit their way across national parks including Bryce Canyon, Yosemite Valley, and Mammoth Mountain. The game offers competitive races, trick challenges, 6v6 PvP matches, online cups, and mass starts. Current-gen platforms support up to 20 players racing together, while on next-gen consoles and the PC, that number increases to 50.
As the player progresses through Career mode, they are invited to join prestigious competitions, sign with real-world sponsors, and unlock new gear and cosmetics. Certain cosmetic items are also offered as a pre-order bonus as detailed below.
Deathloop is an upcoming action-adventure game from Arkane Studios, the creators of modern hits Dishonored and Prey. You play as Colt, an assassin trapped in a time-loop on a retro-futuristic island of Blackreef. The only way to break the loop is to take down eight targets before midnight – but a rival assassin Julianna (that can be controlled by AI or another player) will try to kill you and keep the loop going.
In addition to a variety of weapons, Colt possesses supernatural powers such as teleportation or telekinesis, which should come as no surprise if you played Arkane’s previous titles. He is also adept at stealth, which gives you a choice between sneaking up to your targets or barging in guns blazing.
Scarlet Nexus is an upcoming JRPG developed by the talent behind Tales of Vesperia and published by Bandai Namco. Players assume the role of Yuito Sumeragi, a new recruit to the Other Suppression Force (OSF), which is humanity’s last line of defense against deranged mutants known as Others. While Others are immune to conventional weaponry, the OSF wield psionic abilities that allow them to go toe-to-toe with them. Yuito himself possesses the power of psycho-kinesis that enables him to lift or break anything in his vicinity and hurl it at the enemy.
