Congrats on making it out of the gaming dead zone known as July. From here one, things are only going to improve as we begin our descent into the madness that is the fall and holiday release schedule.
I’ll also be honest with you and say that August isn’t going to blow anyone away with a constant stream of AAA releases, but it is certainly better than last month. Let’s take a look at some of the bigger names coming in August.
August is typically a sports-centric month and that remains true in 2018. Madden NFL 19 is getting ready to hike the ball in a week while Pro Evolution Soccer is getting ready to kick off its 2019 campaign.
Not into sports? No problem! The popular cooking party game Overcooked 2 is also on the way this month as well as the BioShock-ish action game, We Happy Few.
It also doesn’t get much bigger than World of Warcraft for PC players. The game is now 14 years old (insane!) and it’s getting ready to launch its seventh expansion pack centered around the age-old conflict between the Horde and Alliance factions. The fanbase has been recently ignited over a recent trailer which depicted a fan favorite character committing a very heinous act. While fans may be upset, it clearly worked as a marketing ploy and to get people talking about WoW again.
As always, check out the complete list of August games below the break. I hope you enjoyed the time off because things are about to get wild next month.
