Death Stranding -- July 14
Available on: PC
Our Death Stranding review is quite positive, and now PC gamers can experience Hideo Kojima's latest outing for themselves. It's the same story of deliveryman Sam Bridges trekking across a shattered United States, with a healthy dose of Kojima's signature story beats and zany cutscenes. The PC version also includes a new photo mode and crossover content with the Half-Life series, plus support for higher framerates and ultrawide monitors.

Paper Mario: The Origami King -- July 17
Available on: Switch
The Mushroom Kingdom has been usurped again, this time by the eponymous Origami King Olly. Mario will have to use a new ring-based combat system to defeat enemies and bosses if he hopes to take the kingdom back. The origami style applies to the world too: you'll be pulling and bending the environment to solve puzzles and explore. It isn't as role-playing focused as some of the older games. Instead, it has heavy adventure game elements and plenty of puns.
