Games In September: Football, Fighting, And An Epic Sci-Fi RPG

Hey there, gamers! Hope you've made a dent in that backlog from last month. Seriously, conquering Baldur’s Gate 3 is gonna take ages.

A brand new month is rolling in, and you better believe it's packed with more gaming goodies than a treasure chest in a fantasy RPG. Speaking of RPGs, the hotly anticipated Starfield is swooping in early this month, while the annual football title EA FC 24 is closing out September with a goal!

Hold onto your controllers, because here they are – our handpicked video game gems of the month.

PC, Xbox Series S|X

Release date: 6 September

It’s been 8 long years since Fallout IV, the last major RPG from Bethesda Game Studios. So it’s no surprise that we have high expectations for Starfield. Brace yourselves, fellow gamers, for a journey that spans over a thousand planets, quests that could outnumber the stars, and the thrill of customising your very own spaceship. Will this sci-fi title soar as a contender for Game of the Year? Maybe, if it can capture the magic of Skyrim and Fallout.

NBA 2K24
PC, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, Series S|X, Nintendo Switch

Release date: 8 September

The NBA 2K franchise celebrates its 25th anniversary in style, with the spotlight on a fresh game mode that's a heartfelt tribute to Kobe Bryant's iconic 20-year stint with the Los Angeles Lakers, letting you relive those unforgettable moments. But that's not all – gameplay is getting a top-notch upgrade, delivering smoother, more realistic action for the pros while ensuring newbies to the game can jump right in and enjoy shooting hoops for fun.

Super Bomberman R2
PC, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, Series S|X, Nintendo Switch

Release date: 12 September

Super Bomberman R2 brings back the joy of exploding your friends and fam, plus more cool features. Check out the “castle mode” where the ultimate goal is invading and raiding treasure chests, while the opposing team goes all-in on defence until the clock hits zero. You can also flex your creative muscles and whip up your very own game stages or dive into a treasure trove of user-generated stages that other players have made. If you're on the hunt for more fun games to play with your best buds, we got you covered here.

The Crew: Motorfest
PC, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, Series S|X

Release date: 14 September

Buckle up for The Crew series – where it's not just about burning rubber in legendary cars from then and now, but it's also about racing on two wheels, in monster trucks, in planes, and and even on boats. This open-world arcade racing title whisks you off to the sun-soaked vibes of O'ahu in Hawaii, where you'll be riding the waves along the shoreline or tackling a volcano's slopes.

Monster Hunter Now
iOS and Android

Release date: 14 September

This is a mashup that's wilder than we ever imagined: Pokémon Go and Monster Hunter! Yup, it's real. Depending on your surroundings, different monsters will appear. Imagine taking on the water beast Plesioth at Punggol Waterway Park or go head-to-head with the epic dragon Rathalos at Botanic Gardens. Just like the console title, you'll be upgrading your gear and teaming up with other hunters.

Mortal Kombat 1
PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S|X

Release date: 19 September

Mortal Kombat is hitting the reset button, giving us a whole new take on the OG game that started it all. The game introduces Kameo Fighters, support characters to amp your combo game or stop your opponent in their tracks. And as for the MK1 DLC lineup, get ready to see the likes of John Cena’s Peacemaker, Homelander from The Boys, and Omni-Man from the TV series Invincible .

Lies of P
PC, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, Series S|X

Release date: 19 September

Dive into the heart-pounding "soulslike" action (yep, get comfy with respawns) with Lies of P, a game that tosses you headfirst into a dark and twisted European realm, jam-packed with eerie machines and a gothic vibe. The P in the title stands for Pinocchio, but trust us, this ain't the same fairy tale. Get ready to brawl your way through the plagued city of Krat, armed with swords, axes, and a mechanical arm that can be loaded with a grappling hook to drag enemies or a flamethrower.

EA Sports FC 24
PC, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, Series S|X, Nintendo Switch

Release date: 29 September

Here we go! The football fever is back with EA Sports, marking their return to the pitch post-FIFA split. The devs are pulling out all the stops, amping up player movements and giving a makeover to game modes like Career and Clubs. Brace for a revolution as female players join the ranks of Ultimate Team, and you can cross-play with friends on the same gen, uniting gamers on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
