Every big game releasing on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in August 2020
The summer season is continuing to see all kinds of exciting video games release, so much so that the month of August is one that every sports fan should keep an eye on. Because in addition to the return of UFC and NFL, there are also multiple games releasing this month that let you take to the track. So-called “blockbuster” releases – especially from first-party studios – might be few and far between, but you might find something more experimental to help scratch a particular itch.
Skully (August 1st)
Skully is a clear harken back to the likes of Kula World and any other late ‘90s game centred around spheres, casting you as a disembodied head that must bring peace back to an island paradise by exploring it and reuniting three demigod siblings. If that sounds a bit mad that’s probably because it is, but you can rest easy knowing that rolling around as a skull while completing environmental puzzles and defeating enemies is a whole lot of fun. Plus, the ability to transform into a golem keeps the action fresh. Look out for Skully when it releases on PS4, Xbox One and Switch on August 1st.
Fast and Furious Crossroads (August 7th)
We’ll admit that the initial trailer for Fast and Furious Crossroads released at the 2019 Game Awards was a but of an odd way to end the show. Despite this, though, it was only a matter of time before players were given a way to life the dangerous life of Dom Toretto and friends on PS4 and Xbox One. Featuring main characters from the successful film franchise and set across various settings all over the globe, Fast and Furious Crossroads will see you race to the finish this August 7th.
UFC 4 (August 14th)
The next instalment of EA’s premiere MMA series releases this August 14th, refreshing the roster of fighters and introducing new venues for UFC 4. You’ll be able to bang it out in the back yard for the very first time to experience a more intimate affair, or if you’d prefer you can of course forge your own legend while surrounded by hundreds of fans. Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua will be instantly accessible for anyone that pre-orders, but either way MMA fans are in for a treat when UFC 4 releases on PS4 and Xbox One.
