Arguably the biggest month of gaming is upon us, and September has already delivered us Rayman Legends, Diablo 3, Killzone Mercenary, and Total War: Rome 2 in the first week; but what else is coming our way this month?
Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs
A sequel is finally here for one of the most frightening games of all time – Amnesia.
A Machine for Pigs will continue the quest for survival, although as an indirect follow-up to the original game.
Featuring a new cast of characters and time setting, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs should bring some new surprises to the fan-favourite gameplay of the original.
Puppeteer is one of the PS3 games that is slipping under the radar in September, and that’s a crime.
The game is inspired by the complicated art of Japanese Bunraku puppet theatre, with core gameplay elements drawing on the style of scene changes, and the use of elaborate carved heads for the puppets.
The game will introduce players to a strange and fantastic world, where the environment is constantly changing. Players will enjoy a rich, dark fairytale where surprises lurk around every corner.
James was rather impressed with the game when it was first showcased at Gamescom: Puppeteer’s pantomime platforming perfection
Piranha Games has announced that the robo-smash-a-thon that is MechWarrior Online will release on 17 September 2013.
MechWarrior Online is set in the year 3050 during an interstellar war, where combatants need to utilise giant mechanical suits in order to fight for survival. Players can customise their mechs with new systems, armour and weapons.
MechWarrior Online is also free-to-play. The MyGaming lance has already formed and you can join the mechanised mayhem crew over on the forum: Official MechWarrior Online Thread
Grand Theft Auto V
Without a doubt, the biggest game of the year is GTA 5, and after seeming like an eternity in development, the game is about to release this month.
GTA 5 will mark a new era in gaming, with its mindblowing scale, visuals and concepts that will help inspire other game developers.
GTA 5 features three main anti-heroes which you can switch between at any given time, helping you orchestrate heists and jobs to climb up the echelons of crime in Los Santos.
In addition to that, you also get GTA Online, which will allow you to team up or throw down against your friends for countless hours of deathmatches, races, heists or basically anything you can think of.
FIFA 14 will feel different this year, and that’s because it’s running on the EA Sports Ignite Engine.
The animations, visuals and overall crowd atmosphere has been reworked to create the most authentic version to date.
Career mode has been revamped, including a Global Scouting Network through most countries, which allows hiring a scout to search for talent all season from various clubs globally.
Even more licenses, and a new Ultimate Team feature allowing gamers to download classic players from different eras, such as Pele and Ljungberg, will definitely kick some new life into this footie veteran.
