Let’s start with today’s big addition – Ghost Recon Wildlands. This game wasn’t the biggest critical success for Ubisoft, but it was a huge commercial hit when it launched in 2017. It also received years of support before the (far less popular sequel) Breakpoint released in late 2019. It culminated with the addition of a PvPvE mode called Mercenaries.
Later this week we have Turbo Golf Racing, which is entering into Game Preview and Early Access on 4th August. Think Rocket League, but golf instead of football, and you’re probably 90% of the way to understanding the appeal of this game. We got to play it through public beta tests and wrote for our Turbo Golf Racing preview:
“Give it a play and I think you might actually enjoy it as much, if not more than the evergreen car football. The action comes in shorter bursts, the onus is on your own relative skill, as opposed to a collision-filled head-to-head, and there’s the potential for some really wild course designs to emerge. This is definitely one to keep an eye on, just make sure to write the name down somewhere so you can remember it.”
And then there’s Two Point Campus, the scholastic follow up to Two Point Hospital. Take charge of a university, cook up and support all manner of different amusingly themed courses. Unlike with the hospital management sim of Two Point Hospital, you’ll also have to pay more thought to keeping your students happy, building up accommodation for them and keeping them entertained outside of class.
We previewed it a couple times in the last few months, most recently getting to check out the Wizardry and Knight School courses.
