August brings with it some exciting new titles to mix up the big-name sequels and triple-A blockbusters already dominating the 2019 best-sellers list. Check out our picks for the most exciting games coming in August 2019:
Release date: 27 August 2019 (Xbox One | PS4 | PC) Pre-order Control here.
Control comes from Remedy, the team behind such hits as Max Payne and the shamefully-underrated Quantum Break, and it looks to be one of the most interesting games of the year. This supernatural third-person action-adventure game will challenge you to master a combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts and reactive environments, while fighting through a deep and unpredictable world.

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey
Release date: 27 August 2019 (PC) Pre-order Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey here.
Developed by one of the core creators behind the Assassin’s Creed series, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is a unique take on the survival-adventure genre, allowing you take control of an ape in the early days of human evolution. Players will have to advance their knowledge, expand your clan, learn new skills, and explore the diverse environments, all while avoiding dangerous predators and fending off hostile enemies.
You can find the best pre-order price for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey on Steam.
Release date: 27 August 2019 (PC) Pre-order Astral Chain here.
The next release from Platinum Games, the developers behind Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and Nier: Automata, is an interesting looking title where players take on the role of police officers in the far-future. Crazy combat, mechs, and insane enemies (the things people have come to expect from Platinum Games’ projects) are all there, and it looks to be a blast to play. This one is a Nintendo Switch exclusive too, so great to see Nintendo’s portable console getting some more love this month.
