We know we say this every month, but September really is a month stacked with blockbuster games and Triple-A experiences.

Marvel’s The Avengers (September 1st)
Arguably the biggest release of September is Marvel’s The Avengers, an online-centric take on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes primed to let teams of four wreck shop against villains while playing as some of the most recognisable comic book heroes. It’s available on September 1st for those who pre-order the Deluxe Edition and three days later if you pick up the standard.

NBA 2K21 (September 4th)

There are multiple editions of NBA 2K21 to purchase, so it’s never been easier to play and shoot hops your way.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 (September 4th)
The gaming audience was shocked earlier this year when it was revealed that the first two Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games were being remade from the ground up for PS4 and Xbox One. This remastered collection finally arrives on September 4th, letting you master all manner of skateboarding manoeuvres while enjoying fresh 21st century visuals. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 features all tracks, skaters and locations from the original, so is well worth a look.
Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning (September 8th)
Speaking of remasters, September treats us yet again on the 8th with this new and improved version of the cult-classic Kingdoms of Amalur. Dubbed the “re-reckoning” edition, this hit RPG will appeal to anyone who enjoys satisfying combat, in-depth RPG mechanics and the ability to fully customize your characters. You’ll slowly build up your character as part of an engrossing fantasy storyline, guiding a squad of heroes while mastering melee and magical attacks. Look forward to the release of Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning on September 8th.
WWE 2K Battlegrounds (September 18th)
Last year’s WWE attempt was a bit of a disaster, hence why 2K went back to the drawing board for 2020 and opted for a slightly different route. WWE 2K Battlegrounds is a more arcade-centric take on the world of wrestling entertainment, letting you duke it out in the ring as pint-sized versions of all your favourite superstars. You can take a ladder or chair to the likes of The Rock, Triple H and more, but you can also feed them to alligators, honest! Find out what WWE 2K Battlegrounds has in store when it releases on September 18th.
Mafia: Definitive Edition (September 25th)
Originally scheduled to release in August before getting delayed to make way for more polish, Mafia: Definitive Edition is a full remake of the 2002 PS2 classic. Featuring all new visuals, lighting and improved traversal, Mafia: Definitive Edition is a mob story taking place in the 1930s, following the rise of Tommy Angelo as he works his way up the ranks. September 25th is when it releases, being an offer you absolutely shouldn’t refuse.
