August 2018: All The Games Releasing This Month (VIDEO)

August 2018

Here we are at the beginning of a new month, with summer at its peak and the game avalanche of the Fall just beyond the horizon. As such, there admittedly aren’t too many big releases in August 2018, but the shortage of heavy hitters is more than made up with the presence of numerous indies and re-releases. Available in the coming weeks, the most notable titles include the “Final Season” of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead saga, the PC release of Monster Hunter World, and the long-anticipated dystopian adventure We Happy Few.

The theme for the month seems to be the word “ultimate” as games Rocket League, Monster Hunter Generations, and Divinity: Original Sin II are putting out all-in-one editions under this name. The re-releases continue with favorites such as Okami HD for Nintendo Switch, the crime-indulging Yakuza Kiwami 2, and the classic Shenmue I & II collection. August 2018 will also be home to an epic crossover event between Monster Hunter World and Final Fantasy XIV. Okay, on second thought, this month’s theme is probably better being “Monster Hunter” at this point.

Check out the full list of game releases for August 2018 below and let us know in the comments if you’ll be unleashing hole-y disaster in Donut County, heading to the endzone in Madden NFL 19, or engaging with VR shooter Firewall: Zero Hour. Also, be sure to follow Don’t Feed the Gamers on Twitter and Facebook to stay informed of the latest in gaming and entertainment news 24 hours a day!
