Predator: Hunting Grounds (PC, PS4)

Persona 5 Royal (PS4)
The 6th installment in the Persona series, Persona 5 became an instant classic when it was released in April of 2017. If you’re a fan of RPG’s chances are that you’ve already played this masterpiece and if you haven’t there’s no better time than now! Recently released, Persona 5 Royal takes this masterpiece to a whole new level by adding loads of new content. From an all-new party member, new story elements, a whole new location, new enemies, armor, accessories, personas, and more! Persona 5 Royal is the definitive way to experience Persona 5.
Borderlands 3 – Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright & Hammerlock (DLC) (PC, Xbox, PS4)
Gearbox Software just released its second of four campaign add-on DLCs for Borderlands 3’s Season Pass. With Guns, Love, and Tentacles: The Marriage of Wainwright and Hammerlock comes a level cap increase that raíses your Vault Hunter’s level to 57. This new campaign is set during the engagement party celebration of Sir Alistair Hammerlock and Wainwright Jakobs. Travel to the newly available Xylourgos and face new enemies, find new skins, and of course, loot enough weapons to keep you busy until the next episode!
Exit the Gungeon (PC, Xbox, PS4, Nintendo Switch)
If you’ve ever experienced the fast-paced rogue-like bullet-hell shooter that is Enter the Gungeon then you should feel almost at home here. Exit the Gungeon takes the top-down perspective of the original and flips it on its side. Literally. You now find yourself in a sidescroller perspective where you instead climb out of the dungeon instead of going into it. The game is still very much a Gungeon game at its core, but the slight changes are enough to make it feel brand new.
