Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers (PS4, PC) -- July 2
Kicking off July's releases is Final Fantasy XIV's third major expansion, Shadowbringers, which is available now on PS4 and PC. The expansion introduces a ton of new content to the popular MMO, including new areas to explore, nine new dungeons to conquer, and two new raids--one of which is a crossover with Nier Automata. Shadowbringers also adds two new playable races, the Hrothgar and Viera, as well as a pair of new Jobs, and more.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order arrives on Nintendo's hybrid console on July 19. This entry is set in a different universe than the previous Ultimate Alliance games, but it offers the same co-op, button-mashing gameplay that made the series so beloved. It also features an expansive roster of Marvel heroes and villains, with more to come as post-launch DLC.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses (Switch) -- July 26
Nintendo's long-running tactical RPG series makes its Switch debut on July 26 with the release of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, the first home console installment since 2007's Radiant Dawn on Wii. This time around, players are placed in the role of a professor at the Officers Academy, which is made up of three houses representing the continent of Fódlan's three ruling nations. As a professor, you'll be responsible for raising your students and guiding them, both in the classroom and on the battlefield.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood (PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch) -- July 26
Arriving alongside Fire Emblem: Three Houses on July 26 is the next entry in Bethesda's Nazi-shooting series, Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Set 20 years after the events of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Youngblood begins with series hero BJ Blazkowicz going missing in Paris, and it's up to his twin daughters Jess and Soph to find him. Despite the change in leads, Youngblood offers the same over-the-top Nazi-killing the series is known for (with some new RPG elements for good measure), and the entire game is playable in co-op.
