July is filled with some interesting game releases. A classic EA Sports title returns after almost a decade, while a magical samurai game takes you deeper into the beauty and mystery of Japanese culture.

EA Sports College Football 25: The first game in the EA Sports College Football series since 2013, EA Sports College Football 25 will feature new strategic and fast-paced gameplay, in-game passing mechanics and an innovative wear and tear system, which will allow gamers to manage player health, limit their fatigue, and assess risk of injury. To make the game more realistic, the host team will have a gameplay advantage in every match: a feature EA Sports calls ‘Homefield Advantage’. There will be several game modes: including a ‘Dynasty’ mode that lets you create a coach and college football program from scratch. The ‘Road to Glory’ mode lets you play as a student-athlete to battle it out for the famed Heisman trophy. (Release date: 19 July; Platforms: Xbox Series X|S, PS5).
