Coming up: The games of September 2022

There might not be any blockbusters, but September packs in titles like WH40K: Darktide, Pathfinder, Monkey Island, and lots more.

Busy, but not all that impressive

It’s kind of a weird September here in 2022. I don’t mean that in the sense that there aren’t a ton of games arriving, because there are. It’s just that none of them come across as mass market must-plays.

There’s no Deathloop, Gears of War, or Spider-Man this month. But again, there are some notables, and some of those are fairly surefire. Among others, September loads up with the long-awaited console edition of Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, sequels to Nintendo’s Splatoon and Monkey Island, and the Switch arrival of the redux of XIII.

But it’s not all sequels and ports. There are some completely new and original IPs as well, like Steelrising. If you’re unaware of that one, it’s an action RPG that’s set in a diesel-punk version of the French Revolutionary period. Interesting setup there.

And of course there’s the newest NBA 2K as well, plus the savage multiplayer title Warhammer 40K: Darktide, and mystical aRPG Soulstice. See? Lots of stuff.
