4. Far Cry 5

Far Cry 5 is an action-adventure first-person shooter game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Toronto and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

A cult has taken control of Hope County and it is up to players to join the resistance and restore peace. The massive open world is breathtaking and made to explore at your leisure.

There is no shortage of mayhem and entertainment in this game.


3. Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves is a shared world action-adventure video game developed by Rare and published by Microsoft Studios for Microsoft Windows 10 and Xbox One.

A massive open world lets players join up and experience the merry life of pirate shanties, treasure hunting and getting drunk with your friends on an easily-sinkable ship. Players can battle each other on their own ships or do things the old-fashioned way with a swordfight. All that really matters is who finds the most gold and becomes a pirate legend.


2. A Way Out

A Way Out is an action-adventure game developed by Hazelight Studios and published by Electronic Arts under their EA Originals program.

A Way Out is a cooperative narrative game that tells the story of Vincent and Leo, two prisoners in a maximum security prison, as they escape and try to get revenge on the forces that put them there. The game is played with two people—one controlling Vincent and the controlling other Leo—and together you will try to solve puzzles, navigate through the prison and shoot whoever gets in the way.


1. God of War

God of War is a third-person action-adventure video game developed by Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment.

The story follows Kratos and his son Atreus as they navigate the dangerous Nordic wilds on a very personal quest. God of War is made up of intense combat, spectacular landscape and a compelling story that could draw anyone in.
