Desert-roaming adventure Sable comes out this September

Supernatural London adventure Last Stop arrives next month

Get ready for some body-swapping and interdimensional shenanigans, because the third-person narrative-driven adventure Last Stop comes out on July 22nd.

We were treated to a lovely live performance of music from Sable last night, during the Summer Game Fest while footage of the gorgeous upcoming open-world game played in the background. It’s looking as lovely as ever, with charming deserts that rival that of Journey. And now, after two years of delays, we’ll finally be able to explore its beautiful environments ourselves when Sable launches on September 23rd.

Michelle Zauner of the band Japanese Breakfast is working on the game’s soundtrack. Here she is performing one of the songs during last night’s announceathon.

Originally revealed at E3 2018, you play as Sable, a young girl heading out on a rite of passage called Gliding, for which she hops onto a hoverbike to explore the world.

It’s inspired by the comic artist Moebius (who’s influenced a number of games you might not expect), and written by Meg Jayanth, who worked on the excellent 80 Days.

Guilty Gear Strive’s metal-shredding fights have just launched

Arc System Works’ latest Guilty Gear game has launched with all the extravagant animations and metal soundtracks you know, and some new moves for fighting fans.

Earlier this week, a new extended gameplay trailer (below) showed the player character exploring sandy settlements, chatting with locals, gliding around on her hoverbike, and partaking in a little bit of platforming too. While there’s clearly a story here, it seems like you can run off (hover off?) and adventure at your own pace too, which is nice. Perfect for folks like me who’ll spend hours hunting for the best screenshot locations.

Sable was originally set to come in in 2019, before being pushed back to 2020, then 2021. Thankfully, the wait is nearly over, because Shedworks plan on releasing it on September 23rd.

You can find the game page up on Steam now. It’s also coming to Xbox consoles.

E3 2021 may be over but our memories live on – see everything on our E3 hub. Many more big game showcases and streams are still to come this summer, leading up to Gamescom, so see our summer games stream schedule to stay up to date.

The GPU History Museum needs a lot more graphics card box art

Hardware company Colourful have opened what they call the first GPU history museum, but sadly it seems a missed opportunity to create something interesting.
