Top New Games Releasing On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Month — September 2019

We’ve reached September, which means the seasons are changing all around the world. New Releases is here to highlight some of the biggest games coming this month. You can take a snowy retreat with Monster Hunter World’s Iceborne expansion or an island getaway with The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. You can also stay indoors and take to the basketball court with NBA 2K20. Finally, shooter fans can take on the Locust in Gears 5 or the Calypso Twins in Borderlands 3.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne — September 6

Available on: PS4, Xbox One

Iceborne adds the new Hoarfrost Reach region to the New World, and it’s full of snow, ice, and new monsters to take down. This expansion also adds a Master Rank difficulty for those of you who have already bested all the High Rank hunts. If you’re not quite done exploring the game’s main area, don’t sweat it–you’ll still see some fan-favorite monsters added to that part of the game too.

NBA 2K20 — September 6

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch

This year’s 2K basketball game offers the usual dose of modes like MyCareer, MyGM, MyLeague, and MyTeam, but the biggest addition is a series first: you can finally play as all 12 WNBA teams. If you need a break from the basketball court, there are plenty of ways to spend time (and money) on the game’s loot boxes and gambling mechanics too.

  • NBA 2K20 Pre-Order Bonuses, What’s In The Legend Edition, And More

Gears 5 — September 10

Available on: Xbox One, PC

Gears 5 focuses on Kait Diaz, who will learn more about her own family’s history as she uncovers the Locust’s origins. Gears 5 offers the standard campaign and multiplayer options, but there are some big changes to other modes this time around. For one, Horde mode gives every character unique abilities and ultimate attacks–there’s even a pair of characters from Halo: Reach in the mix. Characters also get special perks in the new Escape mode, a three-player co-op experience where you have to destroy Locust hives.

Borderlands 3 — September 13

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC

There are new characters to check out in Borderlands 3 as well. Amara the Siren, Moze the Gunner, Zane the Operative, and FL4K the Beastmaster are your Vault Hunters for his adventure. You won’t just be seeking Vaults on Pandora, though; for the first time, you can travel to other planets aboard the Sanctuary III. As usual, expect to find a ridiculous amount of guns as you battle the evil Calypso Twins.

While it offers the same story and dungeons across Koholint Island, there’s also a completely fresh art style, reimagined soundtrack, and even a special dungeon editor. Tap an Amiibo, and you can unlock extra mini-games and chambers for that dungeon-builder.
