Top 5 Games We’re Excited for in July 2024

Hot summer nights, fireworks, holidays – July is promising all of that and some stellar video game releases this month. See what games we’re excited for in July 2024 that will keep you staying inside.

Oh, and we won’t make you click through five pages to look at the entire list.

Top 5 Games We’re Excited for in July 2024

The First Descendant

A dynamic co-op shooter, NEXON’s looter shooter The First Descendant has grand plans to turn the looter shooter genre on its head.

How are they planning to do that, you may ask?

Not only can players battle huge bosses through its four-player co-operative functionality, they’ll also be able to fight with style with grappling hooks, firearms, and other weaponry.

We’re especially excited to take advantage of The First Descendant’s variety as we dive into this third-person shooter. One is able to equip characters with three guns, four secondary accessories, and a number of different sub-weapons – all of which can help players grow.

Needless to say, we’re all too eager to set out to protect the Ingris continent.

The First Descendant will come out for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on July 2.

Once Human

A strange, post-apocalyptic world awaits with the release of Starry Studio’s Once Human this month.

With everything from animal to plants infested by Stardust, players will take control of this entity in a world of chaos filled with the cruelty of nature.

Sounds fascinating, right? We’re taker to take the fight against these monsters that were once human (hence the name), utilizing approximately 100 gun blueprints, using Territory Cores to build a house of our own, and ultimately seeking out the truth.

Once Human will come out for the PC on July 9.

Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn 

Gods and guns will collide with the upcoming release of A44 and Kepler Interactive’s action RPG Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn.

Taking control of Nor Vanek, this third-person action title will let players use melee weapons and flintlock firearms (again, hence the name) as they take down enemies.

This is standard for the genre, but we especially love Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn’s armor bar. Fill it, and players can take down enemies instantly – or even severely weaken bosses.

We do love a good dose of revenge.

Flintlock: The Siege Of Dawn will come out for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on July 18.

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess

A new tale of the Kami awaits with the release of Capcom’s Kunitsy-Gami: Path of the Goddess this month.

It’s not just the pedigree of this title that has us hyped; Capcom Development Division 1 previously worked on Resident Evil and Devil May Cry.

Between its roots in Japanese folklore, its day and night segments, and its real-time strategy and tower defense elements, Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess is shaping up to be something truly unique.

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess will come out for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on July 19.

The Star Named EOS

Players will be able to get behind the lens with Silver Lining Studio and PLAYISM’s The Star Named EOS when it launches this month.

From what we’ve seen in the demo, this puzzle adventure is filled with heart and soul. Taking control of Dei, players will set out on a journey of reminiscience.

Don’t just take our word for it; this title was also included in The Mini Indie Showcase Official Selection, the LudoNarraCon Showcase 2023 Official Selection, and within the most recent Wholesome Direct Presentation.

The Star Named EOS will come out for the PC via Steam on July 23.
