Vote Now for July 2017's TA Playlist Game

By Mark Delaney, 11 months ago
We hope you're enjoying the month of Sunset Overdrive that's ongoing as part of June's TA Playlist community game. Even if you're not enjoying it, there's room for you over in our Playlist forums too.

It's now the middle of the month, which means it's time to vote on what we'll play in July. My podcast co-hosts and I have plans to do themed polls every so often and we found July to be the perfect time to promote our first such poll. This week you can vote on one of four games in our post-E3 poll. July's options all come from series seen on stage at E3 pressers and will each release new games before the end of 2017.

Here's the next foursome from which the TA community will choose a July 2017 community Playlist game:

Assassin's Creed II

Betrayed by the ruling families of Italy, a young man embarks upon an epic quest for vengeance. To eradicate corruption and restore his family's honor, he will study the secrets of an ancient Codex, written by Altaïr. To his allies, he will become a force for change - fighting for freedom and justice. To his enemies, he will become a dark knight - dedicated to the destruction of the tyrants abusing the people of Italy. His name is Ezio Auditore da Firenze. He is an Assassin.

All four games in this month's poll have Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions, one (AC II) by way of backwards compatibility and a remastered version, while the rest were simultaneously released for both generations.
