Honestly, PC games come in such a wide variety of options that it’s hard to boil it down to just five of our favorites each month. For July 2023, it’s no different.

We found some of our favorite upcoming games that are coming out on PC next month. From puppet murder to PlayStation ports, let’s break it down.

Gimmick! Special Edition

If you’re the type to enjoy classic platforming titles like Mega Man or Kirby’s Adventure, you’re in luck with Gimmick! Special Edition. While this game looks like a newer game invoking the retro feel, it’s actually a game originally for 1992 on the NES. Why haven’t you seen it though? The original Gimmick! only released in Japan and Scandinavia.

It’s cute and brings the original Nintendo Entertainment System charm along with it. This version is finally coming to the US. You can play Gimmick! Special Edition on Steam PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 on July 6th.

Jagged Alliance 3

Sometimes, it’s nice to see something like Jagged Alliance 3 finally come out. For those that don’t know, the original Jagged Alliance came out back in 1995. A sequel came out in 1999. But, the third installment was originally slated for the early 2000s.

It went through development hell before finally being canceled. In 2015, Nordic Games (or THQ Nordic nowadays) bought the rights to the franchise and, after two decades, Jagged Alliance 3 is finally coming out.

Take the role of commanding mercenaries to save the president of a fictional country. Combat is turn-based with tactical components. The story, on the other hand, is an open-world RPG. Save the president in any way or timing you deem fit.

Pack your guns and ammo because Jagged Alliance 3 is finally coming out on July 14th, exclusively on PC.

My Friendly Neighborhood

My Friendly Neighborhood is what happens when Sesame Street goes bad. We’re seen tons of indie “mascot” horror in recent years with the uprising of games like Five Nights at Freddy’s and Poppy’s Playtime. Now, take on a children’s show that’s lost its mind.

If you ever watched live action, puppet-based children’s shows as a kid, this game is designed to fire every synapse in your nostalgia-ridden brain. However, this time around, turn it entirely on its head and make it horror.

Your favorite show as a kid, My Friendly Neighborhood, went off the air years ago. Prior to being canceled, it was the biggest show for kids out there. But, over time, it lost out to newer, better things. It happens. Years later, every TV out there flickers and shows a new episode of My Friendly Neighborhood. Is it back? Why is it on every TV? Why are the characters eating each other? What is going on?

You take on the role of Gordon, a repairman sent to the facility to get to the bottom of the situation. While there, you uncover the mystery of My Friendly Neighborhood while taking down constant threats from the characters. You wield various weapons, such as the Rolodexer, a gun with the last word. Solve puzzles and make your way through the non-linear map to figure out what happened and why everything’s gone crazy.

My Friendly Neighborhood is coming to PC on July 18th. You can play the demo currently on Steam. It’s pretty fantastic.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Ratchet & Clank is one of those classic franchises that needs no real introduction. It’s known for awesome characters and ridiculous weaponry. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart has been out on PS5 since 2021.

Now, we’re getting a PC port. Sony has recently been bringing their console exclusive games over to PC, slowly. We have seen it with games like Spider-Man and God of War, for instance. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is just another in a long line of PlayStation games that those of us that play games on PC can finally enjoy.

As this is a PC port of the game, they went all in to ensure the highest quality of graphics and resolution available for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. You can even use your PlayStation 5 DualSense controller, complete with full haptic feedback and compatibility for the game on PC.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will be out on PC on July 26th, 2023. If you have a PS5, you can already play it though.

Rightfully, Beary Arms (Early Access)

Let’s start off with something adorable. Rightfully, Beary Arms is a rogue-lite bullet hell shoot-’em-up. In this game, the story doesn’t matter. You’re a cute bear with an axe to grind. Well, no ax as far as we can tell. But, plenty of guns to shoot.

One great factoid to note is that you can lose items during gameplay. But, you never lose guns you collect. With a vast arsenal ranging from the realistic to the absurd, there’s no short supply of ways to shoot enemies. Some of our favorites are the Catling Gun, a cat that fires rainbows, and the Finger Gun, which is exactly what you expect it to be.

Fight against various factions and upgrade yourself to have the advantage. In the end, you’re also upgrading your opponents as well. Do you choose to give them extra enemies to mow down? Make every member of their faction stronger? Or do you make health drops less likely for yourself?

Rightfully, Beary Arms will be out on Early Access on July 27th, over on Steam for PCs.

While you’re checking out our article here, you should also check the Xbox Series X and S, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 5 releases for July 2023 as well. Games often make it to multiple systems.

While you wait, if you want to know what’s due out this month, you should check out our picks for new games coming out in June 2023. We break it all down by Xbox Series X and S, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC for you there too.
