Summer is necessarily synonymous with the beach and water games. And if the weather is not good, video games are the ideal refuge for those without heat and sun.
Let’s start by going back in time and transporting ourselves to 1715 with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. In this twist on one of the most profitable franchises in the industry, pirates rule the Caribbean and have established a republic there. You play a young captain named Edward Kenway and explore the South Seas from Kingston to Nassau. In the menu, he searches for treasures, hunts exotic animals or assassinates Templars.
Conquering the islands …
In crisis, you are leaving for the Philippines. Because you transform into Jake Dunn who, while exploring a beautiful island, stumbles upon a strange structure that turns out to be extraterrestrial. crisis is a classic first person shooter in which you will have to defend the island, suddenly overrun by alien. Shoot in all angles and in all directions and the Windows version has been completely remastered.
We remain with the theme “the beach is anything but relaxing” to head towards Far Cry 3. This title, which comes to us from Ubisoft, pushes you to an island where there is no law and therefore no order. In short, this first person shooter makes you face all the dangers that can populate sandy beaches, swamps, temples and harbors. As a bonus, co-op mode allows you to join your friends and spend a day of Beach Party to kill the bad guys.
Are you tired of the sun and want to cool off a bit? In expansion Far away from Fallout 4, you find yourself on the coast of Maine after an apocalyptic event. The sole survivor of the disaster, you explore Mount Desert Island, drowned in radioactive fog. Be careful, all animal species have mutated and you will come across inhabitants that you may need to watch out for.
Beach games …
Forget previous violence and embark on a journey to worlds that are joyful, sunny and a little more family-friendly. Because after all, holidays are for recharging, not for fighting.
Tortimer IslandAnimal Crossing: wild world gives you a breath of fresh air equivalent to Club Med … minus inflation. Go on an adventure collecting rare insects, diving for underwater treasure, and you may even come face-to-face with friendly sharks. Not bad isn’t it?
The blue of the sea is irresistibly reminiscent of the blue of Sonic, Sega’s hedgehog on steroids and the protagonist of two successful feature films. The first level of the energetic Sonic adventure takes you to the Costa Smeralda, a magical place – with frenzied music – where the orcas who will try to stop Sonic’s search live. Go there, you will not regret it.
The title says it for itself, nothing beats a lot of sunshine. Super Mario Sole, which dates back to 2002 (yes, yes, it looks a bit old by the way), has a painting called “Isola del Gelato” … in other words, the ice cream island on which the melon festival is held .water. Perfect for heat waves, right?
Whoever says “beach” obviously says walks. Here you are It will be summer soon. The title is played by two players and the players pretend to be lovers light years away from each other. The two lovers are thinking about each other, each on a deserted beach where the wind blows. Perfect example of a walking simulatorthis category of games where not much happens except inner reflection, It will be summer soon it’s beautifully set to music.
