In Breath of the Wild 2, Link and Zelda set out together to discover more places and stories from the most refreshing open world of the past decade.

Oxenfree 2: The Lost Signals
Oxenfree’s excellent 2016 sequel is interesting for several reasons.

The game takes place five years after the original, and in addition to the new characters, the main character Riley is still there. And a new mystery: strange radio signals, a beacon on an island, thunder: plenty to discover. Another reason why Oxenfree 2 is so interesting: Developer Night School Studio is Got it on Netflix.
