Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered

When: August 12th
Where: PC

After selling over 33 million copies globally, Marvel’s Spider-Man is coming to PC with Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered. The popular 2018 game is known for its gameplay mechanics, especially its web traversal and variety of gadgets. The version is developed by Nixxes Software and Insomniac Games and will include the complete main story along with three additional story chapters in Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps DLC.

The game centers on a seasoned Peter Parker and tells the story of Spider-Man from the comics as he takes on some of the franchise’s most iconic villains – including Mister Negative. You can move freely – or swing – around New York and talk to the characters you meet along the way, while taking on side quests.

Sony has already confirmed that the port will feature additional standard PC-specific features, such as adjustable render settings and ray-tracing reflections, when it launches in August.

The action-adventure RPG is heavily inspired by the Dark Souls games, offering risky, high-difficulty combat designed to test your patience and skill.

Corvus can transform into a raven, giving him the power to throw feathers like daggers or perform executions with raptor-like swiftness. Defeating formidable bosses grants you plague weapons, which can be upgraded and equipped with perks to suit your playstyle. The journey into darkness reveals untold memories, which Corvus must piece together in an attempt to reverse the calamity.

Saints Row

When: August 23
Where: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Stadia

A reboot of the popular Saints Row series, this action-adventure title was originally slated for February but has since been delayed. The game is set in Santo Ileso (not a real city, but bears a striking resemblance to Las Vegas), which is controlled by the Idols, Los Panteros, and Marshall Defense Industries. You’ll take on the role of a character called The Boss – you’ll also be able to fully customize your character’s appearance – and build your gang, as you work to dismantle others and take over the city.

Just like the older games in the franchise, Saints Row will have you roaming around the city, which is divided into nine districts. As you gain control of more regions on the map, you can start new businesses that seem innocuous enough if you don’t pay close attention.

This can help your gang earn enough funds for their mission to wrest power from other gangs and take control of Santo Ileso. You can also team up with a friend and help each other complete quests together, which can come in handy – you might not need those codes this time.
