Formats: PS4, Xbox One and PC

Preorder on Amazon

The third new instalment of Lara Croft’s journey is about to begin, and we can’t wait. With 2013’s Tomb Raider and its sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider as good as they were, Shadow of the Tomb Raider has a lot to live up to, but we’re hopeful.

8 Transference

Transference

Release date: 18th September
Formats: PS4, Xbox One and PC

First shown off during E3 2017, Transference piqued our interest from its very first trailer. Described as “an escape room set in an deranged mind”, it’s available in both VR and standard formats. Part horror, part mystery, Transference looks incredibly weird – and we can’t wait to find out what it’s all about.

10

Life Is Strange 2

Release date: 27th September

Finally, the first chapter of the Life is Strange sequel is just around the corner. This time there’s no Max or Chloe; the protagonists in Life is Strange 2 are brothers Sean and Daniel, who are forced to go on the run after a traumatic event. And while there may not be time control this time, we can certainly expect some kind of new supernatural power to be the focus.

11 FIFA 19
