The summer is slowly coming to an end, and autumn is approaching. This is actually a good time for gaming fans because new release after new release will be hitting the stores from September on. This year, things will look a little different due to COVID-19 but we will still present the most important game releases for September 2020.

Iron Harvest

Marvel's Avengers

eFootball PES 2021

  • Platform: PC, PS4, Xbox One
  • Release: September 15th

Instead of creating a brand-new game with 2-3 improvements, Konami chose a different approach with eFootball PES 2021. The football game will be a season update with new squads, jerseys, and a few small playable improvements. In return, it costs only half as much as a full game.

The UEFA Euro 2020 expansion is already included, fans of the myClub mode will be happy to hear they get some new Iconic Moments cards of former soccer stars. Among them are Oliver Kahn and David Beckham.

The Remaster runs on the new version of the CryEngine and with technical improvements like better HD textures, new particle effects and software-based ray tracing, it is dressed to impress. This could be a next-gen graphics before the actual next-gen launches.
