Witness your favorite Marvel character in action and swing through the New York skyscrapers while you fight crime. The Marvel’s Spiderman Remastered game for PC puts you at the center of the action as Spiderman. The coreplay of the game is similar to its predecessor, Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
Spiderman takes on missions in the fictional Manhattan world, including taking down some of the iconic villains in the Marvel domain. The game’s visuals also feature a stunning upgrade and a framerate boost.

3. Saint Row
A reboot to the popular Saints Row series, Volition and Deep Silver have an exciting crime and action-filled game coming this August. The game’s storyline is a replay of Stillwater City’s iconic story, but with a twist-it’s now set in Santo Ileso. The town borrows most of its geography from Las Vegas, Nevada. The city has nine districts under the control of three brutal gangs. Each district features a unique theme and feel.
The player progresses through the game after gaining control of each district. To achieve this, each player has to form a gang and set up a legitimate business to finance it. The player gets three character friends who are each part of one of the three gangs. The four then merge to create a new gang that seeks to outcompete the opposing gangs. The game features additional upgrades, such as gender inclusion. According to Volition, the game includes “the most extensive character creation mode” witnessed in a Saints Row game.
The gameplay terrain has various empty lots which players can use to set up their businesses or use as attack bases. You can choose what business to set up as front and what illegal activity you’ll run behind the curtains. Volition has added humor into the gameplay – a Grand Theft Auto type of comedy for a more entertaining appeal. The game is expected to launch on August 23, 2022.
2. F1 Manager
If you are an F1 fanatic, you probably understand the pressure and tough decisions managers make in the motorsport legacy. Frontier Development’s F1 Manager gives you a front-line seat to the action with the F1 Manager. The game puts you in the shoes of Christian Horner or Toto Wolff by managing your F1 team for the entire season, but with a better advantage-pausing time. A combination of wit and car mechanics can keep you in the game long enough before you need to make a pit stop. You also need to decide how to manage your world-class staff and develop various mods for your vehicle.
At the start, players get to choose the team they wish to manage. It would be best if you put careful thought into this because the game doesn’t allow you to switch teams. The game will launch on August 30, 2022. On the track, the F1 Manager gives you a more technical task of using various strategies to give your team a winning advantage. This will involve controlling the pace, choosing the best tire compound, and ERS deployment. Each game round features a grip analysis of circuits, which players can use to strategize on tire stints. The pause option gives you time to work through your strategy and test it on track.
