Upcoming Releases: Games August 2022

August is usually, in almost all respects, a rather “weak” month. Chosen by a large majority as the month to take vacations, half the world stops and, consequently, many companies from all sectors (except tourism, of course) hit the brake pedal, reducing their normal activity rate to just one fraction of it. This is something that we also noticed this month, when doing our usual monthly summary of the most relevant game launches that will take place throughout this month of August 2022.

Of course, that the rhythm goes down does not mean that it stops. Quite the contrary, we found some titles that we have been waiting for a long time, and who have decided to make their debut this month to help us make the dog days more bearable, which this year has come especially vitaminized. So let’s try to freshen up a bit with this month’s most notable game releases.

South of the Circle

  • Release date: August 3, 2022
  • platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch

Halfway between a game and a cinematographic fiction, we find ourselves before one of those proposals in which we will have to face vital decisions that, in one way or another, will mark the future of our destiny. We will embody Peter, a Cambridge professor who crash-lands in Antarctica during the Cold War, in a impasse in which past, present and future will be shaken in a cocktail shaker of emotions that could lead us to make decisions that, a priori, we thought we would have ruled out.

Two Point Campus

  • Release date: August 9, 2022
  • platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch

Filtered by mistake a little over a year ago, this is the title that those of us who already enjoyed Two Point Hospital at the time and, even more so, those of us who have an indelible memory of the mythical Theme Hospital, have been waiting for with open arms. Managing a university seems quite complex, what we would have never imagined is that it could also become tremendously absurd and, what is more important, insurmountably fun. Of course, do not trust that of “Knowledge does not take place”, quite the contrary, you will have to measure the size of the classrooms to the millimeter.

Arcade Paradise

  • Release date: August 11, 2022
  • platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch

Somewhere between the 1980s and 1990s, before computers and video game consoles completely landed in homes, there were places where a playful offer was concentrated that drove several generations crazy. I’m talking, of course, about arcades. And what Arcade Paradise proposes to you is to put yourself in charge of one of these rooms from the first day (actually, until now it was a laundry) and, with your ingenuity and your skills, turn it into the reference room. Along the way you will be able to add up to 35 arcades that, yes!, you will be able to play within the game.

Cult of the Lamb

  • Release date: August 11, 2022
  • platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch

Announced at Gamescom last year, and despite not being a triple A, Cult of the Lamb was one of the titles that attracted the most attention at the event (and one that I have been waiting for ever since). After a supposedly sweet and childish aesthetic, in reality we are facing a particularly sinister game in which we will take control of a possessed lamb that, after avoiding death, and in payment to its savior, will create a sect that will worship said savior… and himself. But it won’t be easy, because the land of false prophets is populated by many other cults that you will have to face in your fight of faith (and/or ambition).

rumbleverse

  • Release date: August 11, 2022
  • platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S

Who said that everything was already invented in the Battle Royale genre? From the hand of Iron Galaxy Studios and with Epic Games as publisher (yes, precisely Epic, those responsible for the most successful Battle Royale in history) comes Rumbleverse, a twist to the genre and that adds to the action of these titles , a layer of sense of humor that can give you a breath of fresh air that, however, does not give up many of the mechanics and options typical of these titles.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered

  • Release date: August 12, 2022
  • platforms: pc

It does not catch us by surprise, since this release was already announced by Sony about two weeks ago. We are facing the highly anticipated jump of Marvel’s Spider-Man, until now a PlayStation 4 exclusive title, to PC. In this title, eight years have passed since Peter Parker donned the Spider-Man mask for the first time, but New York is still the target of multiple villains that we will have to face relentlessly.

Madden NFL 23

  • Release date: August 19, 2022
  • platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S

The retirement of Tom Brady did not last long, the absolute star of the NFL who, after announcing in May that his elite sports career had come to an end, just over a month later announced that, well, why not one more year ? Thus, if you take charge of a football team in Madden NFL 23, and even if you have to start from the humblest, you may end up managing a team that has the legend among its ranks. That alone is reason enough to give it a try.

Midnight Fight Express

  • Release date: August 23, 2022
  • platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch

Sometimes we look for games with very thoughtful stories, that make us reflect and from which, at the end, we have extracted a learning that marks, in some sense, our lives. This is not the case, Midnight Fight Express offers us a combat experience at a thousand per hour, with mechanics and cinematics that promise to be quite innovative. Whether with your bare hands or with all kinds of weapons, you will face hordes of enemies in an experience that aims to be a five-star stress reliever.

Saint’s Row

  • Release date: August 23, 2022
  • platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S

The game that kicked off Gamescom 2021 is finally just a few weeks away from debuting on Epic Games. We find ourselves with the long-awaited reboot of a classic saga in which violence, irreverence and a great sense of humor take us to Santo Ileso, an open world city in which, as a team with Neenah, Kevin and Eli, you will take the first steps to the creation of what will start as a gang, but will aspire to become a crime empire.

Destroy All Humans! 2: Failed

  • Release date: August 30, 2022
  • platforms: PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S

Maybe I forgot to mention it at the time, but Destroy All Humans! I found it to be one of the most complex and fun games of 2005, and I can say the same with respect to its 2020 remake. Both Crypto, its protagonist, and the game itself, are irreverence in its purest form, with a singularly critical look to the decades of the 50s (in the original) and the 60s (in this second part). Take down those damn hippies, take revenge on the KGB, fool politicians used to being the ones who fool people, and remember, your mission is to wipe out humanity and conquer this fucking planet.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection

  • Release date: August 30, 2022
  • platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch
