An exciting end to the week brought us arguably the best State of Play of all time, refreshing our enthusiasm for the summer showcase schedule. But while there’s lots to look forward to in the future, there are games to be played right now. Here’s what’s on our agenda.

I’m meandering between a number of different games while I find something to settle on, but I think I might finally wrap up my Platinum in Horizon Forbidden West if I get chance.

I’m actually looking forward to spending a few hours with Assassin’s Creed Origins this weekend, following its PS5 patch. I’m really interested in seeing how it holds up roughly five years after its release, especially having played a lot of Odyssey and Valhalla since.

You guessed it: more Final Fantasy XIII! It’s still pretty linear, but it’s still pretty good.
Aaron Bayne, Video Editor
After noticing that one of my mates was dipping their toe back in the Battlefront 2 waters, I’ve got this old boy reinstalled and have been having a blast with it. I fully intend to showcase that Stormtrooper aim across the entire weekend.

The four game PS4 Wonder Boy Collection just released on Friday, where I think the Mega Drive’s 1994 Monster World IV will be the standout game to grab people’s time and attention.
