With July, the gaming release calendar begins to heat up despite the colder weather, delivering everything from Marvel heroes to vengeful samurais. We’ve rounded up the 5 best games you need to play this July.
Marvel’s Iron Man VR
Release date: 3 July 2020 (PS4 – PSVR)
Iron Man VR is an obvious choice for a virtual reality game, and to be honest, we’re surprised its taken this long to be released. The game allows you to take control of the armoured Avenger and use his weapons and abilities to fight off some world-ending threats, save civilians from burning planes, and customise your armour in Tony Stark’s garage. Furthermore, Iron Man VR is aiming to be more than a VR tech demo, and includes a full campaign with an all-new story featuring other Marvel characters, such as Pepper Potts, Nick Fury, and Friday, among others.

Fans of the Assassin’s Creed franchise should keep their eyes on Ghost of Tsushima – an open world action-adventure game set in Feudal Japan where you take on the role of a samurai. Gameplay-wise, there’s a lot of exploration, clearing out camps, hunting down dangerous enemies in stealth or full-blown combat, and more.

Paper Mario: The Origami King
Release date: 1 July 2020 (PC)
Super Mario’s Paper Mario spin-off series takes the beloved formula of the main franchise, and puts a turn-based RPG spin on it. The release is the first game in the series since 2016’s Paper Mario: Colour Splash, and will shake things up even further when it comes to combat, where battles take place in a ring, allowing you to move more freely and interact with the environment.

Release date: 28 July 2020 (PS4)
While skateboarding fans aren’t getting the beloved Skate 4 just yet, we are getting a spiritual sequel of sorts in the form of Skater XL. Highly-influenced by EA’s more realistic franchise, Skater XL utilises control of the movement through the thumbsticks. Each thumbstick is connected to the corresponding foot of the skater and as the player moves the stick, the board instantly responds. Much like a musical instrument, the player has complete freedom, whether it be pushing to nail a line or skating free form.
Destroy All Humans! Remake
Release date: 28 July 2020 (PS4 | Xbox One | PC)
Another remake arrives this July with the cult-classic, Destroy All Humans, makings its return. The game essentially allows you to terrorise the people of 1950s Earth as the evil alien Crypto-137. Harvest DNA and bring down the US government, annihilate puny humans using an assortment of hilarious alien weaponry and psychic abilities, and reduce their cities to rubble with your flying saucer.
