Top New Video Games Out On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Month

If this episode of New Releases is any indication, you won’t run out of new video games to play anytime soon. We’re taking a look at the month of July, which kicks off with Marvel’s Iron Man VR. You can also take to the skies in Rocket Arena just over a week after that. July is also time to protect your land, whether it’s an occupied island in Ghost of Tsushima or the Mushroom Kingdom in Paper Mario: The Origami King. Finally, the month wraps up with the Destroy All Humans remake.

Marvel’s Iron Man VR — July 3

Available on: PS4

After a few delays, Iron Man VR is finally giving us a chance to step into Tony Stark’s suit. As you’d expect, the HUD inside the PSVR headset resembles Stark’s FRIDAY technology, and you can use the Move Controllers to aim and fire your various weapons. Expect to see other Marvel staples like Nick Fury in the story too.
