1). ABZU

6 Best PC Games Launching in August 2016 – The entirety of game takes place deep underwater where you would exploring the secrets of long-lost alien life. ABZU shares stunning visuals and the controls are very easy in traversing in three dimensions.

2). Batman: The Telltale Series

Telltale Developers are showing no signs of stoping anytime soon. With deals around the globe and getting even both DC and Marvel into their contracts, they are sure to be hop topic for many years to come.

We have excellent Batman games thanks to Arkham games, but Batman: The Telltale Series is slightly more focused on Bruce Wayne and his trials in politics. In usual Telltale manner, how every decision you make will have consequences to your play as Bruce Wayne, your persona as Batman and the general public and health of Gotham city itself.


If you’re a fan of Telltale and Batman, you owe it to yourself to give this episodic series a try. However, it is my purely personal opinion that episodic content like these are best played in one sitting so waiting for them all to release and get them for a discount would be a wise choice too. Just keep it on your radar.

Batman: The Telltale Series is set to release on 2nd August on all consoles, Mobiles, Mac, and PC.

3). No Mans Sky

In this sequel, the violence against augmented being has sharpened to a full-blown riot, where people from both sides in black and white are trying to play the victim.
