Portal Knights (August 1-August 31)
Prove yourself a Portal Knight by leveling up your character, crafting epic weapons, and vanquishing foes in real-time in this co-operative, 3D sandbox action RPG. Explore dozens of randomly-generated islands! Build almost anything! In a world torn apart by the Fracture and terrorized by the Hollow King, you and your friends are its only hope!
Override: Mech City Brawl (August 16-September 15)
No gears, no glory! Control gigantic robots and duke it out in this 3D mech brawler! Epic battles await in local and online Versus mode, 4-player Co-op – where each player controls one part of a mech – and a single-player campaign. Each mech has its own play style, special moves, and finishers.
MX Unleashed (August 1-August 15)
Rainbow Studios returns to its heritage to bring the definitive next-generation off-road game to life. Featuring enormous free world environments and an extensive racing career mode, MX Unleashed is one big off-road playground. If you want more intense action, battle it out with a monster truck, helicopter, or bi-plane!
Red Faction II (August 16-August 31)
Twenty-second century Earth. Five years after the rebellion on Mars. For the last 15 years, Sopot, the corrupt dictator, has oppressed the people of the Commonwealth. His relentless pursuit of unification with the neighboring United Republic has left the country soaked in unnecessary bloodshed and poverty.
Propaganda is plastered throughout communities and a Public Information Building, built as a tribute to the self-centered chancellor, spews news broadcasts with claims of victory as more and more soldiers fall victim. Fed up after years on the front lines, a group of super-soldiers injected with nanotechnology vow to replace the dictator and restore peace.
Defend your country as Alias, a demolitions expert, with the help of your five squad members, each specializing in their own method of destruction. Fight through diverse levels using vehicles, an arsenal of specialized weapons, and massive explosives in your rampage to overthrow the government.
