Among the titles is Tales from the Borderlands, an episodic series from Telltale Games set on the violent and cartoonish planet of Pandora sometime after the events of Borderlands 2. Over five chapters, players follow the main characters, Rhys and Fiona, as they chase down a fortune.
In Abzu, players swim with dolphins, fish, sea turtles, and sharks on an exploratory journey through the ocean. The game was developed by Giant Squid, a studio led by Matt Nava, the art director of Flower and Journey.
Those looking for something more old-school might enjoy Blood Knights, a hack-and-slash action role-playing game featuring two playable characters. Jeremy is a vampire hunter and Alysa is a vampire to whom Jeremy has become ritually bound. They must work together to retrieve a dangerous artifact. The game can be played in either single player or local co-op mode.
