I don’t know about you, but for a month without a ton of major releases, July flew by. We’re now creeping towards the typically very busy Fall/Holiday game release schedule, so I hope you’ve been saving up. September is already looking unreal for new games, but let’s save that for another day.
For now, let’s turn out attention to August, the month I like to call Summer’s Last Hurrah. This month, we’ve got a good mix of major names and some interesting smaller titles. While sports fans can finally get their Madden fix, there’s a few unique titles releasing this month that could be something special.
The first game that caught my eye comes from Remedy, oh you know, the guys behind Max Payne, Alan Wake, and Quantum Break. Unchained from Microsoft this time around, their latest title is Control. Admittedly, I don’t know much about the game as the marketing budget must be tiny but from what I’ve seen, it looks to combine elements from their past games. The supernatural story mechanics from Alan Wake, the quality gunplay from Max Payne, and the interesting abilities of Quantum Break. Here’s hoping it all coalesces into something great.
For those looking for something different, perhaps Platinum Games has you covered this month. Astral Chain. The surprising reveal earlier this year pairs the likes of big name developers Hideki Kamiya and Takahisa Taura, with character designs by Masakazu Katsura. Set in a near future, Astral Chain looks to continue the stylish action gameplay Platinum is known for.
While August isn’t likely going to break the bank like September will, there’s more than a few games for your consideration this month. So, hit the jump to see the complete list of August 2019 video game releases. Enjoy!
