Rumours, hope and alleged inside information had a new Splinter Cell pegged as a sure thing to be announced at this year's E3, but alas we were left with nothing but Assassin's Creed Odyssey, The Division 2, Skull & Bones, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, Transference, Trials Rising, Beyond Good and Evil 2 and, of course, Just Dance 2019. However, easing the pain of no Sam Fisher is, well, Sam Fisher with July's Games with Gold freebies including Splinter Cell: Conviction.
Alongside Sam rests a few Aussies as well. Well, games developed by Aussies at least: Assault Android Cactus:
Play as android cop, Constable Cactus, or nine others as you blast a bevy of baddies to protect your spaceship in this thrilling twin-stick shooter. With a taut story line, non-stop bullet-play, and beautiful visuals, the action really ramps up in multiplayer and will leave you breathless.
And Death Squared:
Cooperation, communication, and robot explosions are the name of the game in this crafty puzzler. Solve 80 unique puzzles that range from elementary all the way up to Einstein genius. Fantastic narration, inventive levels, and four-player multiplayer really set this game apart.
Finally, the SEGA fighting classic, Virtua Fighter lands as the final freebie with Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown:
Customise and fight as your favorite 17 characters from the Virtua Fighter franchise. This definitive version of the series includes an overhauled fighting mechanic, including “offensive mode,” a new strategic side-stepping ability to attack your enemy. Battle your way to the top and prove that you are the ultimate warrior.
