The game takes place in Lands Between after the Elden Ring has been destroyed. Elden Ring’s shards, called Great Runes, are in possession of Queen Marika the Eternal’s demigod offspring. The shards corrupt them with power and the player’s goal is to ultimately become the Elden Lord.

Need for Speed: Heat

During the daytime, you can collect cash, which is used to purchase new parts. On the other hand, nighttime racing gives you RP (reputation points), which are used to unlock new illegal tuning parts.

Police chases, high-speed racing, breath-taking graphics and a great storyline are in place for those that are willing to try this game. The best part about it is that EA Games has finally taken microtransactions out of the equation. Oh, and modifying your cars here has no limits, which is a reminder of the glory days of Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Need for Speed: Underground 1 and 2.

While on the run, he gathers a crew and they go on a quest to find a Holocron that contains a list of all Force-sensitive children in the galaxy.

However, they are not the only ones looking for the Holocron as the Inquisitors want to find it and take the children to train them in the ways of the dark side of the Force. This game really embodies the Star Wars galaxy and if you play it, you will be able to explore numerous planets that are not that popular in the movies and series.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was so nicely received by the fans that the publisher ended up announcing a sequel titled Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. The teaser trailer of this game is shown below.

Forza Horizon 5

Our final listing is none other than a Call of Duty game. There’s no denying the fact that CoD is a legendary gaming series that has provided us with tons of classics throughout the years. Call of Duty: Vanguard.
