September 2019 Video Game Releases

We've finally reached the month of September, which has traditionally kicked off the busy time of year for video game releases. And you'll be pleased to know that September 2019 is no exception. There are a lot of games coming out this month, including a number of big-name titles from major publishers like Xbox Game Studios, Gearbox Software, and Nintendo.

Rather than wax poetic about how jam-packed the month is, though, why don't we just tell you what's coming?

Gears 5 is The Coalition's second entry in the series after Gears of War 4, and by all accounts, it shakes up the traditional Gears of War formula enough to make it worth checking out. There's a non-Fenix protagonist for the first time in a mainline game (and she's a woman, to boot), a far greater emphasis on story than past Gears titles, and a slew of new modes that should give you plenty to do once you've seen what the campaign has to offer. Gears 5 drops onto PC and Xbox One on Sept. 6 for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, and on Sept. 10 for everyone else.

Borderlands 3 has come a long way in what feels like a short time. From its spring announcement into its hype-filled summer, Gearbox kept the news about BL3 coming nonstop. Now we're just mere days from its release, and fans are as frenzied as they've ever been. Borderlands 3 looks to bring a lot of what fans love about the series back for another round, with an insane number of weapons to collect, baddies to kill, and side missions to complete while running through the game's campaign. And, of course, there's that classic Borderlands humor, the glue that holds the entire thing together. Borderlands 3 arrives on Sept. 13 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is a remake that caught us all by surprise, yet makes total sense. It's one of the few Legend of Zelda adventures that's been trapped in the past, playable only via a Game Boy or Nintendo's Virtual Console; why not introduce a new generation to this masterpiece? Despite being revitalized with a new art style for the Nintendo Switch, Link's Awakening appears to be sticking to the script as far as the rest of the game is concerned. So those who played the original will likely feel at home in the remake, though we'd be surprised if Nintendo didn't sneak in at least a surprise or two. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening comes to Nintendo Switch on Sept. 20.

Code Vein is a complete wildcard, and that is precisely what makes it so interesting. Will it be fantastic? Will it be awful? It feels like we've seen so little of the game, yet what we have seen shows there's some real promise here. It's essentially Bandai Namco's take on Dark Souls, but with vampires, and if you think that sounds like a high bar to hit, you're right. But we're going to cross our fingers that this is one of the good Bandai Namco games and not one of the bad ones. Because when BanNam is on, it's on, and this has all the signs of something that could be really cool. Code Vein hits PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on Sept. 27.
