Sea of Thieves gets an update to include Captain Jack Sparrow along with crew and his nemesis Davy Jones. This update will be available later this month.

 Grounded, the open world “shrunk in the back yard” game gets a major update that incorporates items that players have been asking for, such as the ability to sit, and adding pets to the game. The new release also features the first terrifying boss. The update will arrive on June 30th.

What games are you most excited for? I cannot wait to dive into The Bethesda classics such as Wolfenstein II and Doom. I have always had a soft spot for the Age of Empires games, and Party Animals looks to be a fun party game that I will play with friends.
