After an incredibly busy first half of the year, July ended up being a much more stable month.

To see what August has in store for gamers around the world, let’s take a look at the latest installment of Games To Look For.

Baldur’s Gate III (PC) – Aug. 3

Dungeons & Dragons fans around the world have been eagerly awaiting the day that Larian Studios’ mega RPG, Baldur’s Gate III, will be released. Fortunately, fans won’t have to wait much longer, as the developer has decided that the PC game is so ready for launch that it is coming earlier than expected and will launch in August instead of September, meaning you will soon be able to begin your journey where your choices shape the world and the people and creatures that live in it.

WrestleQuest (PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Switch) – Aug. 8

Atlas Fallen (PC, PS5, Xbox Series) – Aug. 10

Although similar to Forspoken, Deck 13’s Atlas Fallen is a very different game.

With the world offering tons of secrets to discover and dangerous monsters to hunt, Atlas Fallen is one for fantasy fans.

Madden NFL 24 (PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series) – Aug. 18

A new NFL season means a new Madden and this is exactly what we get with Madden NFL 24. This year’s game will see the Buffalo Bills Josh Allen as a cover star and will also bring a series of welcome enhancements, including the new EA Sports Sapien character technology for more realistic models, FieldSENSE for better control in gameplay, and finally, cross-play, allowing PC, PS5 and Xbox Series players to team up or compete against each other.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series) – Aug. 18

The game based on the movie based on real events is almost here. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is an asymmetrical horror game that seems to capture the terror of the iconic 1974 horror film. The idea will have players either assume the role of one of the brutal Slaughter family to hunt down and prevent victims from escaping, or that of a victim where the goal will be to work together to find a way to escape the clutches of the terrifying family. Needless to say, Dead By Daylight fans should feel right at home here.

Fort Solis (PC, PS5) – Aug. 22

This narrative adventure set on Mars aims to tap into the unsettling claustrophobic feel that sci-fi thrillers have coined over the years. Fort Solis asks players to unravel the mystery of what is happening on the Red Planet, and does so throughout a story that spans four unique chapters. Starring Red Dead Redemption 2’s Roger Clark and The Last of Us’ Troy Baker, this adventure game will aim to make your hair stand on end from beginning to end.

Immortals of Aveum (PC, PS5, Xbox Series) – Aug. 22

Although it was supposed to debut in July, a last-minute delay pushed Ascendant Studios’ Immortals of Aveum to August, all so the developers could have a little extra time to squash some bugs and improve performance. Perhaps the most anticipated title of the month, this magical FPS game sees players dress up as Jak, an Immortal tasked with fighting back against the armies of the tyrant Sandrakk in hopes of saving the mystical world of Aveum from destruction.

Blasphemous 2 (PC, PS5, Xbox Series, Switch) – Aug. 24

Following the events of Blasphemous’ Wounds of Eventide DLC, Blasphemous 2 will continue the journey of the Penitent One as they continue to explore a harrowing world full of mystery and secrets.

Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon (PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series) – Aug. 25

FromSoftware never seems to stop. We can seemingly always rely on the acclaimed Japanese developer to release a new AAA title every year, and for 2023 this comes in the form of Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon, a return to a series that has long been dormant. This sequel places players in highly customizable mechs before setting them loose in a world to take on massive and overwhelming opposition, providing a challenging experience as we have come to expect from the studio.

Sea of Stars (PC, Switch) – Aug. 29

Although it will eventually make its debut on PlayStation and Xbox, Sabotage Studios’ Sea of Stars will make its first appearance on PC and Switch. This pixel title offers a story-rich adventure that takes players on an engaging journey through a fantasy world and opens the door to exploration, turn-based combat and even a whole host of extra activities to fill your time, such as fishing, cooking, sailing and more.

Under the Waves (PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series) – Aug. 29

August is really full of narrative adventure games, so it’s only right that a Quantic Dream-published title joins this fray as well. Parallel Studio’s Under the Waves is a game that revolves around professional diver Stan as he struggles to overcome a life-changing loss while living deep in the ocean in a techno-futuristic North Sea submarine. Exploring the emotions of grief and loss combined with striking underwater sights, Under the Waves will question whether Stan will ever make it back to land.

Goodbye Volcano High (PC, PS4, PS5) – Aug. 29

The month of narrative adventure games comes to a close with KO_OP’s Goodbye Volcano High. This cinematic tale revolves around a group of anthropomorphic creatures who face the challenge of coming to terms with graduating high school and moving on with their lives. This story is all about the end of an era, and this game attempts to explore this concept with song and emotionally gripping dialogue and performances.

And there we have it! Another month in the books. To see what the very exciting September has in store for gamers, be sure to return at the end of August for the next installment of Games To Look For.
