August 2023 PC game releases - Hammerwatch 2

This one of August 2023 PC game releases is an installment in the much-loved indie series Hammerwatch. The Hammerwatch franchise has garnered an impressive following since the release of the original game in 2013, with its addictive gameplay mechanics and retro graphics.

Check out the Hammerwatch 2 overview gameplay trailer:

Hammerwatch 2 offers significant improvements and notable additions that have evolved the gameplay experience to one that can be called an action RPG. The game features similar top-down, hack and slash mechanics as its predecessor, but with a more expansive world and additional action RPG elements. Players will be able to choose from various classes, each with their own unique abilities and strengths. New systems for looting, crafting, and questing for new gear have been added.

With its promise of an expansive open world, a riveting storyline, and intense combat scenarios, Hammerwatch 2 is poised to be a standout title in the list of upcoming PC game releases. Whether you’re a fan of the original Hammerwatch or new to the series, this game promises an unforgettable gaming experience. The game supports online co-op, so you can experience this wide new world with your friends.

Bomb Rush Cyberfunk – August 18th

August 2023 PC game releases -

Bomb Rush Cyberfunk is an upcoming game developed by Team Reptile. It has a unique concept, a captivating art style, and what looks to be a good balance of exploration and parkour mechanics. The game takes place in a vibrant and fully explorable futuristic city that serves as the canvas for the player’s graffiti taggings. In addition, the game features a unique trick system that rewards the player for chaining together tricks as you skate, dance, bike, or run across the city. Bomb Rush Cyberfunk has some standout elements such as its music choice and voice acting, which adds depth to the overall experience.

See the official release day announcement trailer:

The game’s art direction is heavily inspired by graffiti art culture, giving it a unique and edgy look. There aren’t many games that can be compared to Bomb Rush Cyberfunk. The closest would be the critically acclaimed game, Jet Set Radio and its remake Jet Set Radio Future, which also featured a heavy focus on parkour and graffiti. This game looks like it is something of a “love letter” to the Jet Set Radio games.

Immortals of Aveum – August 22nd

August 2023 PC game releases -

Immortals of Aveum is an upcoming action-packed, first-person adventure game developed by Ascendant Studios and published by Electronic Arts (EA).

As a newly appointed guardian, Jak, you will embark on a journey to save Aveum from the tyrant of Rasharn–known as Sandrakk–who intends to gain control over magic, and thus, the world. The players must battle, solve puzzles, and gain magical abilities in their efforts to win the Everwar.

Armored Core 6 – August 25th

August 2023 PC game releases -

This heavy hitter of the August 2023 PC game releases promises to deliver a gaming experience of epic proportions. It’s estimated to be about 50-60 hours long–five times the length of the last Armored Core series installment. For those who may not be familiar with the franchise, Armored Core is a mecha combat video game with its first installment released in 1997 by FromSoftware (the same company that is also behind the Soulsborne games).

See Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon gameplay preview:

The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world that is now ruled by powerful corporations, each vying for control of the world’s remaining resources. Players take on the role of a mercenary taking missions from various factions to claim resources and survive in this harsh world.

Players can choose from a vast array of weapons, parts, and modules to create their perfect machine. They can also upgrade their mecha over time by acquiring new parts and modules, allowing them to continually fine-tune their mecha to meet the challenges they face.

Sea of Stars – August 29th
