Video Game Release Dates: The Latest Games Coming to PC and Consoles in August 2023

Check out our August highlights and then keep scrolling to take a look at the other games that are being released this month.

Which titles are you most looking forward to? Let us know in the comments below.

August 3

Baldur’s Gate 3

Platforms: PC (PS5 version releases on September 6)

Gather your party and return to the Forgotten Realms for this long-awaited third instalment of the Baldur’s Gate series.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is playable in both single-player and multiplayer and there are rumours the game will take between 75-200 hours to complete. You’re going to need to set aside a lot of time for this one – perhaps now is the time to book time off work!

Choose from one of the game’s classes – Wizard, Cleric, Fighter, Ranger, Rogue, Bard, Monk, Paladin, Warlock, Druid, Sorcerer, or Barbarian (or play as an origin character) – and adventure, loot, and battle your way through the Forgotten Realms and beyond.

August 10

Atlas Fallen 

Platforms: PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S

Set within the sweeping dunes of a great desert, Atlas Fallen is an open-world action role-playing game that tasks you with liberating mankind from the oppression of corrupted gods.

Glide the sands of an ancient world that is filled with hidden dangers and fragments of the past. Hunt legendary monsters using powerful, shape-shifting weapons. And gather the essence of your enemies to shape your own custom playstyle as you forge a new era for humanity in solo play or cooperative multiplayer.

August 18

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Platforms: PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S

Go head to head with the chainsaw-wielding Leatherface and his cannibalistic clan in this upcoming survival horror game that is based on the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise.

The game features strategic 3 vs 4 team-based multiplayer gameplay, with each player taking on the role of a member of the Slaughter family or one of their victims. Locations will be familiar to anybody who has seen the film, as will the cast of characters which includes the iconic Leatherface, Cook, and Hitchhiker from Tobe Hooper’s terrifying horror masterpiece.

August 22

Immortals of Aveum

Platforms: PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S

In this single-player first-person magic shooter, players take on the role of Jak as he joins an elite order of Battlemages to save a world that is on the edge of destruction.

Not many fps games rely on spellcasting so this title certainly has something new to offer any gamer who is jaded by the endless number of gun-based fps shooters.

Fort Solis

Platforms: PC, PS5

In this third-person psychological sci-fi thriller, you take on the role of Jack Cleary, an engineer tasked with answering an alarm call from a mysteriously deserted mining facility on Mars.

What happened to the facility’s inhabitants? That’s up to you to find out as you gather clues from its bunkers and brave the harsh surface of the Red Planet that is being battered by a dust storm.

August 24

Blasphemous 2

Platforms: PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Switch

The Penitent One has awoken! This sequel picks up from where the Wounds of Eventide DLC ended and puts you in a new world with mysteries and secrets to discover and hordes of monstrous foes to face off against as you tackle the labyrinthian locations of the game’s brutally difficult levels.

August 29

Goodbye Volcano High

Platforms: PC, PS5, PS4

School might be closed for the summer but if you’re missing the smell of the classroom, you might want to delve into this cinematic narrative game about the students of Volcano High.

According to the game’s synopsis, you must “make new friends instead of pushing people away, play that song you wrote (the one you’re too afraid to show anyone), and tell that one person – yeah, you know the one – how you really feel.”

Sounds just like a real school then – other than the fact this one is populated by student dinosaurs!

Hercule Poirot: The London Case

Platforms: PC, PS5, PS4

Take on the role of the famous Belgian detective as he travels to London for the seemingly simple task of delivering a painting for an exhibition. On arrival, the painting is stolen, so as Poirot, you need to find the culprit behind the theft.

During the game, you will gather facts, question suspects, and discover iconic London locations as you seek to solve the case you have been handed.

Sea of Stars

Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S

Sea of Stars is a turn-based RPG that aims to modernise the classic role-playing game formula in terms of turn-based combat, storytelling, exploration and interactions with the environment.

The game tells the story of two Children of the Solstice who will combine the powers of the sun and moon to perform Eclipse Magic, the only force capable of fending off the monstrous creations of the evil alchemist known as The Fleshmancer.

Need a break from fighting and exploring? No problem, as there are many ways to hang out in the world of the Sea of Stars if you feel the need for a change of pace. Go sailing, cook food, spend time fishing, or stop by a tavern to listen to a song!

Under The Waves

Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S

From Quantic Dream, the people behind Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human, comes this narrative-driven adventure game about the engulfing power of grief.

The game, which is set in the depths of the North Sea in a techno-futuristic version of the 1970s, puts you in the shoes (or flippers) of a professional diver named Stan who retreats into underwater exile after experiencing a life-changing loss.

During the game, you will explore caves, wrecks, and underwater plants with Stan’s special wetsuit; follow the mysterious manifestations of his memories; and collect materials and craft equipment that will help Stan navigate further on his self-discovery expedition.
