New Releases highlights some of the hottest video games launching each week. This episode is bringing some dark and mysterious sequels, with Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise and Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2. There’s also a double dose of racing thanks to F1 2020 and NASCAR Heat 5. Finally, console gamers can get their hands on CrossCode.
CrossCode — July 9
Available on: PS4, Xbox One, Switch
CrossCode got its PC release some time ago, but now console gamers can try out this 16-bit action-RPG. It’s got more than 120 enemies to battle, 30-plus bosses to beat, seven unique dungeons to explore, and over 100 quests to complete. What’s more, Xbox Game Pass members can jump in on day one.
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing In Disguise — July 10
Available on: Switch
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise
Deadly Premonition 2 is considered both a sequel and a prequel, which fits right in with the game’s Twin Peaks-esque zaniness. Agent York will be traveling around via skateboard, which you can customize. Expect a good helping of mini-games as you solve mysteries around town too.
Bloodstained: Curse Of The Moon 2 — July 10
Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch
Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2
The surprise sequel was only recently announced, but Curse of the Moon fans will be able to take control of swordsman Zangetsu again this week. He’s joined by three new playable characters: Hachi, Robert, and Dominique from Ritual of the Night. They all have unique abilities you can use to access secret areas in each level.
F1 2020 — July 10
Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia
Real-life F1 events have been canceled or postponed this year, but you can race on all 22 of those tracks in this game. There’s no story mode, but you can race through various series of different lengths. Of course, you can race against others online too.
NASCAR Heat 5 — July 10
Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC
NASCAR Heat 5
The most notable change from NASCAR Heat 4 is the addition of single-car races, letting you test out tracks and set record times. Heat 5 also includes improvements to the pit stop, paint booth, and did-not-finish mechanics. And in case you’re wondering, driver Tony Stewart is featured on the game’s box art.
July is only just getting started, and the next episode of New Releases has a whole bunch more games to talk about. We’ll be taking a look at the PC port of Death Stranding, the reimagined Story of Season: Friends of Mineral Town, and more. GameSpot’s Play For All charity event will also continue this month.
