Making the long-awaited transition to the action RPG genre, which was already proving to be the next step since the launch of FFXV, Final Fantasy XVI arrived bringing a more complex and dark plot.

It is up to the protagonist to use his sword techniques and eikonic abilities to save the world from a powerful threat.
Escaping a little from the current market trend, Final Fantasy XVI It’s not an open world game: the title works with open areas to explore, like in the Monster Hunter series games. For those who like Square Enix’s RPG series, but are not used to the more action-focused format, the game offers the option of start the adventure with a focus on the story, which enables certain special abilities that aim to offer a more satisfying gaming experience. For example, it is possible slow down time during battles and see the advantages and disadvantages of opponents.
God of War Ragnarok
Embark on an epic and moving journey where Kratos and Atreus struggle with the conflicts of staying together or tearing each other apart.

The duo follows fighting gods from Norse mythology, such as Heimdall, Thor and Odin, in a campaign that follows the events that occurred in the previous game, when the protagonists witness the beginning of Ragnarok, the end of the world.
The game is an evolution of its predecessor, polishing some mechanics and introducing new elements to the gameplay. God of War Ragnarok is one of the main exclusives for the PS5, being highly recommended and a game worth keeping an eye on to, perhaps, buy at a discount on Black Friday.
Hogwarts Legacy is an action role-playing video game developed by Avalanche Software and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment under the Portkey Games label. It is set in the late 19th century Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

A Gryffindor character’s gameplay will be different from that experienced by another Slytherin character, for example. Furthermore, the title gives players the freedom to follow more noble or evil routes, something that also reflects on the unfolding of the story.
