In what seems to be a delay one after the other, the next casualty is reportedly a very big one, and it is the upcoming Sony PlayStation exclusive Horizon Forbidden West. This comes by way of a report by Jason Schreier of Bloomberg, who says that the rumor shared by Journalist Jeff Grubb yesterday has been confirmed. While no official word has been released by Sony as of yet, the report has been making the rounds already, and if proven true, we should probably hear an official word soon enough. https://twitter.com/jasonschreier/status/1421161736779014154 If you’ll remember, a statement made by Hermen Hulst back in June mentions that “For Horizon Forbidden West, we think we are on track to release this holiday season. But that isn’t quite certain yet, and we’re working as hard as we can to confirm that to you as soon as we can.” If the delay proves to be…

Tales of Arise is the latest entry in the long-running franchise and a highly anticipated release scheduled for later this year. Bandai Namco has released a new trailer, alongside an interview with composer Motoi Sakuraba, that features some of the side activities you can do in-game, which involve things like camping, cooking, and a feature that really completes any RPG experience – Fishing! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNpekwPPP50 In Tales of Arise, character development is put into focus, and there will be various sequences that will further narrate encounters between them like Event Movies, Animations cutscenes, Skit, and Short Chats. In particular, animation cutscenes in the game will be done by none other than Ufotable, the same studio known for works like Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. Cooking, a series staple, will also make its return and will be an integral part of the game which will provide your team members with buffs that…

When Stray was teased during the Playstation 5 Showcase, we could only imagine the type of gameplay for this story that stars a stray tabby. During the recently concluded Annapurna Interactive Showcase, we finally get to see what’s in store, and it basically looks like an awesome and visually stunning cat simulator. We do get to play as a cat and do cat-things, solve environmental puzzles, defeat hostiles, and interact with robots. Unfortunately, it’s not coming out this year as previously announced, but is now set for early 2022. Check out this cute gameplay trailer below: https://youtu.be/8R-splyERsI I’m not a cat person, but this game has convinced me to at least consider one. Stray releases for the PS4, PS5, and PC in Early 2022.

During the recently concluded Annapurna Interactive Showcase, which showed some enticing game reveals and updates, we finally get a release date for one title we’ve been looking forward to since it was announced, Solar Ash. The good news is that Solar Ash will be releasing on October 26 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. That’s about 3 months from now, and it’s looking to be worth the wait. The bad news is, given its release date, it may not be a PS Plus giveaway (which we really hoped for), at least based on the trends from the past months. Nevertheless, the game is still looking amazing as ever, and we can’t wait to play it. https://youtu.be/1xC9uHfgzwU Solar Ash is developed by Heart Machine, known for their work on Hyper Light Drifter, and is set to release for the PS4, PS5, and PC on October 26.

Are you still playing the game or will the War for Wakanda expansion tempt you to return? Marvel’s Avengers is now available for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC.

Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is scheduled to release on August 20, and with it, some much-needed PS5 upgrades along with a new destination for Jin Sakai, Iki Island. Ever since it was announced, many players have wondered what this new Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will bring, and exactly how big the new DLC is to command the price. Thanks to an interview with Creative Director Nate Fox and Environments Lead Joanna Wang by Push Square, we now know more about the upcoming release. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBrAlSKqdAE While mileage may vary from player to player depending on the way they play, the length of the Iki Island story will roughly be as long as Act I of the game. In the interview, Nate Fox says that “Yeah, it’s very similar in size to Izuhara, so… It’s an open world game, so it depends on how you play it. If you want…

One of our more anticipated titles for August, Kena: Bridge of Spirits has been delayed to September 21, as announced by Ember Lab. Further polish is needed for the title, and while a delay is unfortunate, the good news is that it will only be delayed by a month from its initial release date of August 24. https://twitter.com/emberlab/status/1420489786641444866?s=20 Due to the pandemic, working through extraordinary situations has been tough for everyone. Returnal was also delayed previously to get some extra polish in, and it has become one of the best titles of 2021. Rushing out this game so close to completion isn’t a good idea, so this extra month should hopefully work well in their favor. Kena: Bridge of Spirits will now release on September 21 for the PS5, PS4, and PC.

Kojima Productions have announced that as of March 2021, Death Stranding has officially sold over 5 million units, performing quite well from the expectations of the company. KojiPro head of publishing Jay Boor shares in an interview with Gamesindustry.biz that “With Death Stranding being the first title developed out of Kojima Productions, from a sales perspective, it has performed quite well.” Considering that the title was very polarizing in terms of reception from critics and players, 5 million is quite the accomplishment. In comparison, Horizon Zero Dawn sold over 10 million copies 2 years after its release. Ghost of Tsushima, on the other hand, has sold over 6.5 million copies as of earlier this year. https://twitter.com/KojiPro2015_EN/status/1419584795282137090 Death Stranding Director’s Cut for the PS5 is set to release on September 24, which will include more than just a visual update. Jay Boor shares that the game will introduce “new missions and…

The PS Plus August 2021 lineup is supposed to be revealed sometime next week, but it seems somebody pushed the button a bit early and accidentally leaked the lineup for next month, on the Sony PlayStation website no less. For the PlayStation 5, announced as early as the Deathloop State of Play, Hunter’s Arena: Legends will be the first game. To round up the list, Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville and Tennis World Tour 2 will be offered. Of course, since there isn’t any official announcement yet, it would be wise to take this with a grain of salt. Just in case the website gets updated, here are screenshots for reference: PS Plus August 2021 Free Games Based on the information from the website, these games will be available to download starting August 3. As such, you have a couple of more weeks to avail of the July lineup,…
