August could be considered the calm before the storm for new games. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great releases coming out this month.

A different take on the Batman saga comes from serial storytellers, Telltale Games. Focussing on the world of Bruce Wayne and see how your decisions affect the shamelessly twisted Gotham City. Realm of Shadows marks the first episode for the chiselled jaw of the Dark Knight.

Exploring the murky depths of the oceans are your main goal in ABZÛ. Take control of the lone diver as she meets some of the ocean’s most wonderful and scary-looking creatures. A peaceful affair which is a far cry from the typical antics of most video game explorers. *side eye to Nathan Drake*

Overcooked

Release Date: August 3    Platform: Xbox One / PS4 / PC

Whoever said cooking was easy? The premise to Overcooked is a cute, chaotic multiplayer game where 1-4 players have to cook a meal. A seemingly simple one, until you throw in earthquakes and stray trucks. Local multiplayer has never looked so tasty.

No Man’s Sky

Release Date: August 9 (NA) / August 10 (EU)    Platform: PS4 / PC

In the second exploration game of the month, one of the most highly anticipated games of 2016 is finally due out this month after a couple of delays. No Man’s Sky will see you explore a quintillion planets and surviving on them in your trusty spaceship. Let’s all hope it lives up to the sky-high hype.
