The reason Foxhole is such a unique war title is because of its focus on the players. In this case, the players are how the game is decided on a large and small scale. You’ll pick a side and be part of a war that is weeks long.
But your actions on the battlefield can swing things for or against your side. Every soldier matters, so be wise about how you handle scenarios. For example, will you go in guns blazing to try and eliminate enemy soldiers? Or will you hop into a vehicle and break through enemy lines?
The war will ebb and flow, so ensure you’re on the right side when it all ends!

Are you ready for the next epic medieval title? If so, jump into Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord and seek glory for yourself and your clan!
That is the name of the game. You’ll helm your own clan and then seek to have them recognized among the best in the land. But the question is, “How will you accomplish that?” You might try to conquer all your foes so they can’t stand against you. Or you might attempt the political side of things and see how many relationships you can build so they can support you when you make your claim.
Either way, medieval glory, and battle await!

Lego games are constantly popping out into the marketplace. Typically, these games are parodies of the source material. We’ve even seen a few Star Wars Lego games come out in the past. However, this upcoming release is a retelling of the entire Skywalker saga. All nine movies are being represented here, and players can jump in and out of the episodes as they please. While the campaign will feature several iconic moments from the films, some gameplay mechanics were tweaked. For instance, we know the combat was enhanced, so there might be a bit more control in battling enemies with a lightsaber, blaster, or the force. Since these games are typically toned down quite a bit, you might find it to be a perfect option to enjoy with younger audiences.

As expected, you can eventually make different upgrades to your gear or particular load-out as you attempt to battle off the infiltration of Chaos onto the city.

- Release: September 13, 2022
A military war game based around WWI we think you should be checking out is Isonzo. The overall game focuses on the Italian Front. You’ll battle against the opposing forces throughout Italy, aiming to be more historically accurate, everything from uniforms, weapons to the locations are being replicated to showcase what it was really like during chaotic frontline battles. There is also online PVP where players can join together and battle within the different game modes. Players can even get an inside look at how the game might handle as the developers have brought out other historical war video games in the past. These are the folks who brought Tannenberg and Verdun. Both of those games have had a strong following, so there are some high expectations that Isonzo can deliver.
