All we have to do is endure the last month of the summer to get started in the fall of Canaan and be provided with plenty of exciting new games. You don’t have to be discouraged, some gems are also in store for the month of August! Let’s see!

Icarus will be a free sci-fi survival game that the creators of Rocketworkz have dreamed up for us. The planetary surfaces where we have to survive by collecting will be individually designed, not randomly generated. If we don’t get back to our spaceship on time on the planets by the time it launches, all the equipment we had will be lost. It can also be played in a team. For the most part, there will be 30-minute “sessions” in it, but 2-day ones won’t be uncommon either.

Humankind is a historical strategy game, in which the history of all mankind can write again. By crossing up to 60 different cultures, you can create unique cultures you could never have imagined before. I want to take the Civilization series off the throne, but will they succeed? What do you think?
3. Ghost of Tsushima – Director’s Cut
Available: August 20, 2021 ( PS5, PS4 )
Ghost of Tsushima with the 13th century Mongol Empire I don’t think needs to be introduced to many, but the Directors’s Cut version ( which will be released on August 20) is all the more so! This PlayStation exclusive title has become a favorite of many, but what does the director’s version offer? We get a whole new island! There will be new abilities, new enemy types and we can even worry about armour for our horse! But other than that, the director’s version has a lot of little new features! Check out the trailer!
4. Psychonauts 2
Available: August 25, 2021 (PS4, XBO, PC)
It was already known in 2018 that Psychonauts 2 was coming, but it was certainly necessary to wait until the end of the summer of 2021 for the latest instalment of the Double Fine game already in Microsoft’s hands to actually be released. Although we’ve also got an exciting version of PlayStation VR since the first part, the official second part will still be that. Once again, hiding in Raz’s skin, we can venture into more crazy places than crazy, experiencing a new, excitingly funny story.
5. New World
Available: August 31, 2021 (PC)
Amazon’s MMORPG, after lots and lots of slips, looks like it’s finally coming out on the last day of August! The killer news of the game’s video card has stirred up big dust, as the beta, which could be tested at the end of July, specifically cut some EVGA RTX 3090 cards, but they were compensated for it. Although it is not entirely proven that they were the geese in this, but a patch has already come to light where the case has been resolved by limiting framerate. In any case, Amazon’s saviour seems exciting. We’ll see what they manage to put on the table!
