All the awesome games coming your way in September 2018

Games of September.jpg

Exciting times are ahead for gamers as the 'high' season kicks off in September with Spider-Man, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and FIFA 19. If you own a Nintendo Switch, then there are a few gems coming your way in the next few weeks, and we also get to play the first games that will use Nvidia's ray-tracing technology. In fact, there are so many games releasing in September, that there is something for everyone to play.

Spider-Man

You can expect at least 20 hours of game time in Spider-Man, and from what we experienced during our hands-on time with the game at E3, you'll enjoy every second of it. One of the features we are most excited about is the new traversal techniques. Traversal is Spidey's trademark, and it's never been more clear than in Marvel's Spider-Man. Movement if fluid, intuitive, and beautiful. You can even perform tricks while swinging through New York, these include Spide-Roll, Moonsault, Flying Helix, and Dragon-Roll, to name but a few. You'll be able to perform these tricks right from the start, but the longer you play, the more you'll learn to perform things like the wall run, perch jumps, and tricks with style.

Combat is also more refined than ever, and you can use your gadgets, hand-to-hand-combat, acrobatics, your Spider-Man abilities as well as the environment. Peter Parker is 23 years old in Spider-Man. He has also been the Spider-Man for eight years which is where the game picks up. The main story will follow his journey as he fights an elusive gang known as the Inner Demons who are taking over parts of the city.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Something you might not know about Shadow Of The Tomb Raider is that the game has a unique twist - it's not just another adventure for Lara - she has to rectify some mistake she made. Interesting twists aside, what we are more excited about is to walk through the dense jungles, and experience the beauty of this world. Those playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider on PC and who has the required PC specs can experience Nvidia's new ray-tracing technology for the first time.

The game starts off two months after the events in Rise of the Tomb Raider, and we find Lara in Latin America on an expedition to find a Mayan relic which has a connection to her late father. It has everything we expect from a Tomb Raider game, crafting, survival, combat, puzzles, exploration, stealth, trading, and lots more. Rise of the Tomb Raider also has the biggest central hub of any game in the franchise, and it is based in the hidden city of Paititi.

FIFA 19

  • Releasing: 28 September
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One & Nintendo Switch

  • Developer: 

FIFA 18 was lauded as the best FIFA game of the franchise, and possibly even the greatest football game ever made. To outperform its predecessor, FIFA 19 will have to excel in every aspect of the game. One of the features it already has over FIFA 18, is the inclusion of UEFA club competitions, including the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Super Cup competitions. FIFA 19 also sees the conclusion of Alex Hunter's story in The Journey: Champions.

New gameplay features include an overhaul of player control, a new mechanic that allows the player to better time kicking the ball, "50/50" battles, a system that determines the odds of a player winning loose balls, and a better system to configure strategies and switch between them in real-time during a match. When it comes to stadiums all 20 English Premier League grounds are featured, as well as six new stadiums from the Spanish La Liga, and three from the Spanish Segunda Division. When it comes to the Switch version, EA has promised significant upgrades over FIFA 18.
