Top 5 releases for August!
The sequel to the 2016 multiplayer hit comes back strong with new gameplay features as well as online multiplayer capabilities. Play solo or gather up to 4 friends and work as chefs in the kitchen full of obstacles to prepare enough meals to accomplish your goals. There are a lot of improvements to the game compared to the first game. One of it is you can now toss ingredients to one another, onto the floor and even straight to the frying pan.
The game is set to release on 7 August for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Monster Hunter World
Finally, Monster Hunter World will be out on the PC. This is the latest installment of the Monster Hunter series which features a living, breathing ecosystem. If you are unfamiliar with the series, the game lets you take on the role of a hunter that slays ferocious monsters. Go forth as a lone wolf or hunt in a pack with co-op play amongst your friends up to 3 other players to take on more challenging foes and gather better loot.
