Upcoming Game Releases for September 2018

Sorry kids, it’s back to school with you. September is back, but it’s not all going to be home work and high school hierarchies. Major video game releases are spilling into September this year, the month now brings a host of new and exciting games.

Don’t get caught with it in class, but here’s our cheat sheet for games to play over the coming month.
