Lake 

(Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC) – September 1

best new games September 2021

It’s 1986 – Meredith Weiss takes a break from her career in the big city to deliver mail in her hometown. How will she experience two weeks in beautiful Providence Oaks, with its iconic lake and quirky community? And what will she do next? It’s up to you. Lake is a very interesting-looking indie adventure game. I personally love the art style and feel like Lake may be one of the best games to come out this month.

Life is Strange: True Colors

 (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, Stadia, PC) – September 10

Life is Strange is back. The beloved series has another entry coming out this month with Life is Strange: True Colors. With decisions aplenty, you play through the game the way you want to. True Colors is set deep in the mountains of Colorado where I also happen to live. The small town is beautiful and mysterious and waiting to share its secrets with you.

NBA 2K22 

(PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC) – September 10

best new games september 2021

August was Football and September is Basketball time. NBA 2k22 is set to come out in September and is for sure one of the best most recognizable games of the month. Play as all your favorite teams and players as you enjoy the NBA 2K22 new features!

Deathloop

 (PlayStation 5, PC) – September 14

best new games september 2021

While Deathloop experienced some setbacks we are super excited for the final release this month! Deathloop is an action-adventure game that looks to be incredible. Deathloop happens to be a mystery but what is promised as extremely fun and sometimes intense gameplay should make the mystery even more enjoyable. Hope are high for Deathloop in our camp.

New World 

(PC) – September 28

best new games september 2021

Amazon’s New World is brimming with potential and there’s much to learn. The game is set to come out a little later than originally planned but we are excited for it nonetheless. During your journey, you will be leveling up, finding new weapons and armor, slaying powerful monsters, and crafting powerful items. However, the main goal is to defeat the “corrupted,” a powerful cult that worships and uses the corruption of the island.

The Falconeer

(PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Switch) – August 5

The Falconeer is an Action-Adventure RPG that initially came out in 2020 but we are finally getting on PS5, PS4, and the Switch. The game itself is based around ariel combat and does a damn good job of it as well. Not only is the combat of The Falconeer good but the game is also just straight-up beautiful. The world also manages to be super well built and truly feel engaging.

Hades

(PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One) – August 13

If you haven’t heard of Hades where have you been? Hades won game of the year in 2020 and is a great roguelike dungeon crawler. Each run challenges the player through a random series of rooms populated with enemies and rewards. The hack and slash combat is loved by both young and older gamers. Truly that’s all you should need to know, I can’t recommend this game enough!

best new games august 2021

Psychonauts is a beloved platforming game so why would the sequel be any different? We don’t think it will be and because of that are very excited for Psychonauts 2! You will control Raz, a newly graduated Psychonaut with powerful psychic abilities, as he delves into the minds of others. We can’t wait for this one to come out.

The Big Con

(Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC) – August 31

best new games august 2021

Finally, we have The Big Con, a game that flew under the radar for me until just recently. The art style looks amazing in my opinion and the game sounds like it could be really fun as well. You will hustle your way across 90’s America. You can choose whether to don disguises, pick pockets, or rip people off in the comedic crime-filled adventure. A game I wasn’t expecting to be excited for this month but one that I have really grow to be interested in.
