On the complete opposite end of the gaming spectrum is Yooka-Laylee, free for Gold members from August 16 to September 15. A spiritual successor to the N64’s Banjo-Kazooie series, Yooka-Laylee (developed by Playtonic Games) is an open-world platformer in which players explore beautiful worlds, solve puzzles and collect items as the buddy duo Yooka, a male chameleon, and Laylee, a female bat. It’s bright, it’s color, it’s adventurous, it’s the complete opposite in tone of Darksiders III, or this next game. Darksiders III will be available for the entirety of the month of August. Released in 2018, this is the third entry in the action role-playing series, blending gameplay elements from the first two games with those from Metroidvania games and the Souls series.
