It’s safe to say that the month of June was completely dominated by Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree and, by all indications, this won’t change much with the arrival of July. I say this because we’re still in that period of the year when releases are more lukewarm and consist of smaller or more niche titles.

Still, it’s quite possible that you’ll find something that really catches your eye. With that in mind, check out the game releases for July 2024 now!

July 2nd

Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail – PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S e PC

Dawntrail’s pre-sale has already been a success and has increased the number of players in the MMOSource: Square Enix/Reproduction

Fans of Final Fantasy XIV are counting on the launch of the Dawntrail expansion at the beginning of the month, on July 2nd. With this DLC, the maximum level will be increased, there will be new dungeons, new jobs, equipment, characters, raids, missions and much more.

Considering that the MMO’s servers have already had connectivity issues due to the increase in players in recent months due to the pre-order bonuses of the Dawntrailit is imaginable that the expansion will be a great success in the community.

The First Descendant – PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S e PC

Still on July 2nd, we have The First Descendanta third-person, cooperative action RPG. Its premise is pretty basic: you and your friends play as a people known as the Descendants, beings who inherited unknown powers and now fight to protect humans from potential invaders on the continent of Ingris.

Up to four players can play, with each character having a unique battle style. The game is completely free on PC and consoles, so it’s worth giving it a try.

July 9

Once Human – PC

On July 9th, we have another multiplayer game, but this time it’s an open world game with an emphasis on survival. Once Human takes you into a post-apocalyptic world, where you team up with your friends to find out what happened, fight monsters, build your base, and fight for the scarce resources that are still scattered around the world. The concept sounds interesting for survival fans, but for now the game is only scheduled for release on PC.

July 11

Anger Foot – PC

Another game that will only arrive on PC in July is Anger Foot. This indie game developed by Free Lives and distributed by the famous Devolver Digital consists of something very simple: kicks. You will go through several scenarios full of enemies that need to be defeated and, although you have conventional weapons, your greatest triumph is in your powerful kicks.

You can even use different shoes and use completely different skills and types of kicks, almost as if they were powers. The game looks like a lot of fun, so it’s worth keeping an eye on.

July 16th

Cataclysm – PC

From the creators of the adorable Moonlighter, Cataclysm arrives on PC on July 16. This game mixes real-time strategy with the Tower Defense genre, so your goal will be to defend humanity from the hordes of enemies that appear at night. To do this, you will need to build fortresses, optimize the production of resources in your village, train your troops and make several tactical decisions when necessary.

The game promises a 30-hour campaign, as well as modes focused on creation, survival and combat for those who want to keep playing. A really cool factor is that the game’s construction is inspired by LEGO and there are more than 100 pieces that you can mix and match in your creations.

July 17th

Bo: Path of the Teal Lotus – PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Switch e PC

Then on the 17th we have Bo: Path of the Teal Lotus coming to current consoles and PC. This 2.5D platformer has a very beautiful visual style, as it is hand-drawn and heavily inspired by Japanese folklore.

Your goal will be to explore a mythical interconnected world and discover more of the mysteries surrounding its origin. All this with powerful abilities and acrobatic aerial combats to make the adventure even more fun.

July 18th

Dungeons of Hinterberg – Xbox Series X|S e PC

We can’t talk about games with a different visual style without also mentioning Dungeons of Hinterberga game coming to Xbox Series and PC on July 18. You play as Luisa, a law intern who is tired of office life and decides to take a break from work with a less than relaxing activity: facing the dungeons of a tourist spot in the Austrian Alps.

She will have to solve puzzles, fight monsters and explore forests, glaciers and mountains to search for the entrance to the other dungeons. In addition, during the nights you can make friends with the local people, with the possibility of some of them teaching you new skills and tricks.

Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn – PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S e PC

If you have already completed the DLC Fire Ring and now you’re thirsty for another souslike, maybe it’s worth trying Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn. From the creator of Ashen, this game pits you against the Gods who are on the verge of destroying your world.

Some of the differences in this soulslike are its fast mobility and dynamic and explosive combat, in addition to the fact that you have an NPC companion who will tell you more about the world and with whom you will be able to combine your skills to solve possible problems and puzzles that you encounter.

July, 19

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess – PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S e PC

While loyal fans are paying attention, many people don’t know that Capcom has an original action-adventure game coming out soon. On July 19, Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess arrives on Sony, Microsoft and PC consoles. The title is entirely inspired by Japan and is set on a mountain dominated by the taint. Its gameplay cycle repeats itself as follows: during the day, you must purify the villages and prepare for nightfall. At night, your task will be to protect a Priestess from hordes of enemies known as Wrathful.

The cool thing is that in addition to fighting monsters using your sword strikes, you will also have the help of villagers, to whom you can assign different roles and positions. This strategy adds a very interesting layer to the game, as several changes can occur during battles, forcing you to try new tactics.

July 25th

Frostpunk 2 – PS5, Xbox Series X|S e PC

Frostpunk 2 is easily one of the most anticipated releases of the month, both for those who enjoyed the first title and for those who are just fans of the genre. The title is set 30 years after the original, when an ice storm devastated the Earth. The situation in the world is still difficult and it is your role to lead a metropolis that continues to be desperate for resources and suffers from internal conflicts. The game will be available on PS5, Xbox Series and PC on July 25.

July 30th

Deadlink – PS5, Xbox Series X|S e PC

If you like first-person shooters, cyberpunk elements and the roguelite genre, you might want to check out Deadlinka game that mixes all of this and arrives on consoles and PC on July 30th. You play as an agent recruited to put an end to the corrupt schemes of powerful corporations, having at your disposal a large arsenal of weapons, skills and technologies that make the game frenetic and that looks like a lot of fun.
