Welcome to September, a month favored by songwriters and people who love to go to school. It’s another pretty relaxed month for video games: there are some potential bangers on the release schedule, but nothing with such broad appeal that it’s likely to get everyone talking about it at once. September is a niche month.
Gloomwood is exciting (opens in new tab)– we love our immersive Sims – and Disney Dreamlight Valley is a potential crowd pleaser (Lauren has already played around with the character creator for an hour). And don’t count out in fighting games Lego brawls (opens in new tab). It might not have the star power of MultiVersus, but it might surprise us. What smashes better than Lego?
Gamescom is over and E3 ended over two months ago, but there are no more rules, so this month also comes with a reveal event: Ubisoft Forward, where we will see the next Assassin’s Creed game, a Valhalla spin-off Set in Baghdad called Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
Disney Dreamlight Valley (opens in new tab) | September 6th (Early Access)
A Disney life sim is the kind of pitch that turns cartoon eyes into dollar signs. Mickey fans, Kingdom Hearts fans and Stardew Valley fans: unite.
Gloomwood (opens in new tab) | September 6th (Early Access)
We’re disappointed that we’re only getting a portion of Gloomwood and not the full game, but this immersive simulation has been one of our most anticipated games since we found out about it.
steel crates (opens in new tab) | September 8th
I like cheering on the French RPG maker Spiders. I wouldn’t place any of its games anywhere near a list of the best RPGs for PC, but it seems to be making a serious effort to improve with each one. His latest tells the story of the French Revolution, but with robots.
Ubisoft Forward (opens in new tab) | 10.09
Ubisoft hasn’t said much about what will be featured at its next livestream event, but we do know we’ll be getting a first look at Assassin’s Creed Mirage (opens in new tab). According to leaks, it’s a “back to basics” Valhalla spin-off with a stealth focus.
sunday gold (opens in new tab) | 13.09
A turn-based adventure game that’s a bit similar to Disco Elysium, the current number one in our top 100 list (opens in new tab). Not a bad comparison to such a game.
Return to Monkey Island (opens in new tab) | 09/19
Ron Gilbert brings back point-and-click hero Guybrush Threepwood for another Monkey Island adventure with a new art style (that didn’t quite go over well (opens in new tab)but I think it’s cool).
WoW Classic: Wrath of the Lich King (opens in new tab) | 09/26
The past is also happening in the present: the second World of Warcraft expansion is releasing this month for WoW Classic and will allow players to fight the undead like they did back in 2008.
FIFA 23 (opens in new tab) | 09/30
Unlike the new Madden, the PC version of FIFA 23 is the current-gen console version that PS5 and Xbox Series X|S players will receive. Yay! That also means it’s $70. boo!
