5 Games We’re Looking Forward to in August

Gamers Heroes Top 10 - 10

Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 1

Based on Bill Finger and Bob Kane’s Batman comic book series, Batman: The Telltale Series has players controlling both Batman and his alter ego Bruce Wayne. The game has a similar branching storytelling method as the studio’s other games, along with a number of investigative segments. We’re looking forward to exploring this original tale, which is not based on any comic, show, or film.

The first episode of Batman: The Telltale series will come out on all major platforms on August 2, 2016.

The King of Fighters XIV

Itching for a fight? SNK and Atlus’ The King of Fighters XIV is here for you. Packing 48 characters (not including sub- and final bosses), players choose teams of three to duke it out with one another. We’re looking forward to diving into the complex mechanics the series is known for.

The King of Fighters XIV will come out for the PlayStation 4 on August 23, 2016.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Set two years after Deus: Ex Human Revolution, Square-Enix’s Deus Ex: Mankind Divided marks the return of the augmented hero Adam Jensen.

No Man’s Sky

Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky prides itself on giving complete control to the players. Built on the four pillars of exploration, survival, combat and trading, players can free explore a procedurally generated deterministic open universe with almost unlimited possibilities. We’re looking forward to exploring the game’s universe, which is bound to have some serious legs.

No Man’s Sky will come out for the PlayStation 4 and PC on August 9, 2016.

What we at Gamers Heroes are looking forward to the most:

All of the games this month are pretty solid, but we are looking forward to No Man’s Sky the most. It’s survival elements, along with its near-limitless world, could very well make it the next Minecraft.
