Every medium has a general area in the calendar year where things slow down. As far as video games are concerned, that’s the summer months. After a busy fall of releasing Xbox One, Wii U and PS4 games developers pack it in, choosing to focus on development so that their holiday games launch on time during the winter months.
This summer hasn’t exactly deviated from that regular pattern. Batman: Arkham Knight launched late last month temporarily providing some much needed excitement to kick off the summer. Video game developer Rocksteady Studios plans on updating that game monthly for those who have a season pass. Outside of Batman, it’s going to be a slow summer filled with add-ons and upgrades for the titles gamers already have.
Here’s 4 Xbox One and PS4 games and updates you can expect to launch this month. Not all of these are entirely new experiences, but they should help hold you over until more Xbox One and PS4 games arrive this fall in the case of Halo 5: Guardians and next year for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
