This Week in Games: Jul 1 – 6


A couple of 4-player co-ops battling invaders or with an anime flavour + mobile crossplay, expansions for Final Fantasy, and a classic side-scrolling pixel shooter make for a quick week in gaming. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

First up and falling into the category of 4 player coop where you wear armor and shoot hordes pf larger than life enemies, is ‘The First Descendant’ hitting Steam on Tuesday, and for Windows PC, PlayStation, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on Wednesday. A free-to-play co-op action RPG shooter using Unreal Engine 5 where you are battling invaders to save humanity.

Sticking with online gaming but with Final Fantasy Online – ‘Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail’ hits Steam on Tuesday, and Windows PC, PlayStation, and Xbox Series X|S on Wednesday. This expansion for FFXIV Online takes you to uncharted territories with new tribes and epic battles. Ensure you have the Starter or Complete Edition and an active subscription to join the adventure!

Step into the anime-infused chaos of ‘Zenless Zone Zero,’ launching on PlayStation and the Epic Games Store this Thursday. Also in the 4 player squad shooter/fighter genre like the First Descendants this one is much more anime-like and is coming out with cross play that also includes iOS and Android when it drops.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to ‘Void Reaper,’ launching on Steam this Friday. This classic sidescrolling pixel shooter lets you pilot your ship through the Void, face diverse enemies, upgrade your vessel, and battle epic bosses to reach the End Boss in this action-packed odyssey. Because sometimes you just need an old school arcade shooter that might end up you being selected as the Last Starfighter.

If you bought any of these on the release day, tell us how it went! Also, as always did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments
