This year has been excellent for video game releases. It looks like almost every genre has launched something big and exciting into the marketplace or is gearing up for a release. In this list, we’re going to look back at some of the best games to have released in September. That said, they can range in various genres and even platform exclusivity. As a result, don’t think that this is ranked in any specific way. Instead, these are just a few games we suggest you check out.
#9 Bomb Rush Cyberfunk
It’s not hard to see what game Bomb Rush Cyberfunk was inspired by. You can literally tell the direct references it’s trying to achieve with its style and gameplay. But no matter how you feel about that, the game is all about picking up the beat and tagging your way across the city so that everyone knows what crew runs the streets.
You play as Red, a guy with a “unique head” who meets the Bomb Rush Crush and joins their ranks. Together, they’ll try and outwork all the other crews so that their mark on the city is the biggest. You’ll have fun with this title between the unique beats, gameplay, and style.
#8 We Were Here Expeditions: The Friendship
Numerous co-op titles wish to bring friends together to ensure a true gameplay experience focusing on teamwork. But how many of them actually “test the bonds of friendship?” You’ll finally have that test in We Were Here Expeditions: The Friendship.
The game is all about two players working together to overcome challenges. Sounds simple, right? However, the only way to get through the tests is to truly trust your partner, communicate with one another, and work together to take on what’s in front of you.
Every puzzle you face requires teamwork to overcome. So if you don’t work well together? Your ship will sink! Don’t let that happen, okay?
Numerous horror games act as a co-op experience so players can work together to survive true terror. In Demonologist, up to four players can enter various haunted areas and attempt to figure out what evils lurk within.
Then, once you figure that out, exorcise the being and then move on to the next location! The true terror of the game is that no playthrough will go the same as the last one. Every place you go to will be randomized, so you never know what to expect next.
So customize your crew and your safe house, and get ready to see if you can survive what goes bump in the night!
#6 The Crew Motorfest
If you’ve been looking for a new racing title not just to enjoy but to enjoy with friends, then The Crew Motorfest is what you need to get.
The game puts you on the island of O’ahu and lets you have fun in numerous ways with hundreds of cars. We’re not joking here; there are over 600 vehicles you can drive in the game! Oh, and not all of them are cars! So, with that kind of variety, you’ll have plenty of ways to fill up the day.
Plus, the game will have numerous seasons provided by Ubisoft to ensure that content keeps rolling in and that you, the player, will always have things to do.
#5 Lies of P
The story of Pinocchio is a well-known tale, but have you ever seen it told in the genre of Soulslike? That’s what we thought.
Lies of P will put you in a town overrun by monsters, and a mysterious entity guides you to try and find your maker. But it won’t be easy, as the darkness that fills this town could corrupt you if you’re not careful. So the question is, will you be truthful to all you see? Or will you tell a lie to ensure you get through the situation?
No matter your answer, you’ll never see the legendary puppet like this again. Or at least, more than likely.
#4 Mortal Kombat 1
NetherRealm Studios has been on a high since they rebooted their beloved franchise, and now, they’re doing it again! Well, kind of.
In Mortal Kombat 1, Liu Kang used his godly and Titan powers to rewrite the entire history of the realms so that the many Kombatants you know could have a chance at a better life. But when certain forces seek to shatter that new reality, it’s up to the Kombatants to come together like never before and fight for the freedom of all!
The intense kombat you know and love is here, and it’s as violent as ever! Plus, with a unique roster and the Kombat Pack to come, you’ll have plenty of fighters to choose from.
#3 Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty
We know it’s all kinds of ironic that Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty was a highly anticipated game in September, given what we got in the original title back in 2020.
But we’ll give credit to CD Projekt Red. They put their heads together and made something special that fans could truly enjoy. When V is asked to save the President, who has crash-landed in Dogtown, you’ll be thrust into an espionage-style thriller where nothing is what it seems, and your actions will determine your fate.
Everything about the title has been overhauled to give players what they wanted from the original game and then took it to the next level! So, if you’ve been waiting to play the main game, now is the time.
Yep, we’ve finally been able to get this game after YEARS of waiting, and…it’s not too bad. Depending on who you talk to, Starfield is the “game of the generation” or just a “decent sci-fi title with lots of fast travel.”
You’ll have to discover the truth for yourself when you journey across the stars as a member of Constellation. They are seeking the truth behind numerous artifacts you just happened to have found.
Now, wander from planet to planet, defeat enemies, and learn the truth! Or, you can just go all over the universe and see what else there is to do. Your call.
#1 Baldur’s Gate 3
If you haven’t heard about Baldur’s Gate 3 by now, you’re missing out on many memes and fan videos. Seriously, they’re a unique bunch.
The game puts you in a deep D&D-style adventure where you have a powerful parasite in your brain, and you must fight to get it out. Or, you can submit to it and use the various powers it possesses to become an unstoppable evil force! The choice is yours.
Just as important a choice…is who you sleep with! Seriously, this game focuses on romance so dang much that you could argue it’s the reason why many people bought the game. You’ll see why when you jump in.
