Predator: Hunting Grounds
The lore of 1987 action classic Predator returns to video games with Predator: Hunting Grounds, an asymmetric, cooperative/competitive multiplayer game from IllFonic, the studio that made a Friday the 13th video game along the same lines. Play as an elite Fireteam charged to complete paramilitary operations while a Predator mercilessly hunts you.

The critically acclaimed monster hunting game Monster Hunter World is getting a chilly new DLC expansion called Iceborne, arriving on September 6.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint
Ghost Recon: Breakpoint forgoes a real-world locale for the fictional island of Auroa, a mysterious archipelago in the Pacific Ocean.

Riverbond is an indie dungeon crawler coming this summer. A gorgeous and colorful title, it now features a stunning cast of indie guest stars like Shovel Knight and Raz from the stellar PsychoNauts. While the title doesn’t appear to be deep, it looks like a lot of good, old-fashioned, co-op fun.
The remake of the classic 1998 hack-and-slash MediEvil got a release date: October 23. I’m a big fan of Sir Daniel Fortesque, even when no one knew who he was in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. One of the most style-forward games from back in the days of PSX, it’ll give us retro gamers awesome new graphics and fun gameplay.

Not a lot is known about this game, but let’s hope there’s some co-op and online multiplayer—swooping down as a vulture and taking out my rodent friends is one of the only gaming experiences I’ve been missing.
