Written by Ankit Gaba

Last week we got many amazing games such as Spelunky 2, which met a lot of critically acclaimed. This week seems to be amazing too. There will be a lot of indie games and some AAA games with some amazing potential. It might be the best week for gaming this month too.

Rebel Galaxy Outlaw

Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is coming to PC (Via Steam), Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on September 22. It has been out on Epic Games Store since last year. It’s the sequel to the critically acclaimed game Rebel Galaxy which currently sits at “very positive” on Steam with over 5000 reviews.

Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is a space western-styled space trading and combat simulation game in which you are out of luck, cash, and everything. Juno Markey has a killer, which she is tailing and a debt which he has to pay. She also has some trouble headed in her way. The world is full of outlaws, truckers, and thieves who might not head your way.

Rebel Galaxy Outlaw has a big open-world that is spread across 50 systems of the dodge sectors. You can either play as a mercenary, trader, pirate, or mix any of the three’s abilities. It also has engaging storytelling and a complete conversation system. You can either follow the narrative or ignore it and choose a new path at any time in Rebel Galaxy Outlaw.

Pendragon

Pendragon will also be releasing this week. It is a Strategy game coming to PC on September 22. It is developed by inkle, who have created Heaven’s vault previously, and that was met with a lot of critical and public acclaim. Hopefully, Pendragon achieves acclaim from people and critics too, just like their previous game Heaven’s vault.

Pendragon is a turn-based strategy game, and every move which you make will drive the narrative, and the story will be twisted to open some new gameplay opportunities you can either advance and show your mettle or cautiously retreat at the end of the day. It’s up to you. You can either slip round of enemies or encounter them head-on. There will also be harder choices like sacrifices you will have to choose who you’ll put into harm, which seems pretty punishing for the player if they get attached to all the characters in Pendragon

You can choose a character which you’ll have to lead the adventure with their personality will change the story of the game

  • Morgana le Fay is treacherous
  • Her mistake always haunts Queen Guinevere
  • Sir Lancelot is French
  • Sir Gawaine is usually drunk

In Pendragon, you will have to live your legend. There will be mistakes, suspicion, revenge, sacrifice, and murder. No one is sade in Pendragon, not even the leader anyone can die. You’ll also have to create your team of Knights, Heroes, and peasants. Their abilities will grow and change with the story as you progress in Pendragon and determine the fate of the kingdom. Your actions will determine whether a character faces the enemies with his friends by his side or all alone
