Now that August has begun and the barrage of games that are set to hit in the fall is right around the corner, we are sure to get a few great single player games this month as we prepare for the next few. Here are the three single player games to look out for in August.
Developer: 4A Games
Publisher: Deep Silver
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC
Release Date: August 26 in North America, August 29 in Europe
The Metro series has had two great games on last gen consoles, and they’re back on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Metro: 2033 and Metro: Last Light have both been remastered in full1080p and 60 frames per second on both consoles. It will cost $50 to buy a retail bundle with both games included, or you can buy each game digitally for $25 each. Each version also includes all DLC released for each game, and adds some new features to gameplay. Metro: 2033 has seen the biggest overhaul of the two, with updated gameplay mechanics that resemble more of what Last Light had to offer. This will also be the first time Playstation owners have gotten to play Metro: 2033 so for that reason alone it’s worth a pick up.
Developer: 4J Studios
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS Vita
The mega-hit on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 finally comes to next gen consoles this month! Minecraft, the game that allows anyone to create anything their heart desires is finally arriving with many upgrades from the previous generation’s versions. The world will be much bigger, and there will be much more to do and use in the world. The best part is, if you already own the game on PS3, you get it for free on Vita and for only $5 on PS4. If you already own it on Xbox 360, you can get it for just $5 on Xbox One as well. While there is no set release date yet, 4J Studios has confirmed via Twitter that the newest versions will release this month, and that all content packs bought on previous generations will carry over.
Risen 3: Titan Lords
Developer: Piranha Bytes
Publisher: Deep Silver
Platforms: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC
Release Date: August 12 in North America, August 15 in Europe
The sequel to Risen 2: Dark Waters, Risen 3: Titan Lords shows us that there’s still a reason to keep your last gen consoles. This installment returns to the medieval setting for the series, instead of the pirate setting that the previous installment had. Risen 3 provides a huge open world to explore at your own will that provides the player with an “authentic, classic RPG experience”. Risen 3: Titan Lords releases for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on August 12 in North America and August 15 in Europe.
Those are our three single player games for August. Let us know which games you’re looking forward to in the comments below, and for everything single player, be sure to follow OnlySP on Twitter and like us on Facebook.
