Shadow of the Tomb Raider (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – Lara Croft is back and is quite literally facing the apocalypse in her next adventure in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The last entry in the series, Rise of the Tomb Raider, released in 2015, two years afters the first in the reboot series, Tomb Raider. The latest installment is looking very polished — and pretty dark. Look forward to jungle exploration, clever puzzles, tough fights, and gorgeous scenery.

September 15


Undertale (Switch) – The cult favorite is finally releasing on Nintendo Switch to the joy of many. The acclaimed indie game originally released on PC in 2015, and people quickly took to the game’s depth and heart. It’s an RPG where you don’t have to kill anything or anyone, but it can be hard not to. It’s also one of those games you have to play to really get, and it’s awesome a whole new crew of players can experience Undertale on a console as great as the Switch soon.

Life is Strange 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – All aboard the feels train for Life is Strange 2, a followup to the 2015 episodic graphic adventure with the ability the alter time to change choices for alternate consequences and timelines. The sequel follows a different story with different characters and no time travel ability to be seen, but it looks to hold the same heartfelt narrative we expect from these games.
