Ghost of Tsushima Header

The summer months are usually quiet when it comes to new game releases.

Not this year though. We’ve had the likes of The Last of Us Part II in June, and July is absolutely stacked with titles such as Ghost of Tsushima and Paper Mario: The Origami King. Next-gen consoles might be releasing at the end of the year, but developers aren’t resting on their laurels and holding back the good stuff.

So, what games have you got to look forward to this July? Read on and find out. There’s bound to be at least one or two that make you want to part with your hard-earned cash.
