All video games coming in August 2021

2 agosto – Grime

The first date of the month is with Grime, a new metroidvania developed by the guys at Clover Bite. The game will see us take on the role of a hero with a face made up simply of a black hole, whose task will be to avert a multidimensional catastrophe that threatens to collapse the whole of reality.

The game promises a progression system of RPG and mechanics inspired by the soulslike genre, which should guarantee a certain freedom to the player on how to build his character and how to evolve his skills over the course of the adventure.

Grime is out on August 2nd on PC and Google Stadia.

August 3 – Hearthstone United in Roccavento

Let’s move on just one day to welcome the new Hearthstone expansion, entitled United in Stormwind. This additional content will introduce 135 new cards and the new trading skill, which will allow players to exchange a card with this skill for any of their deck, which will lead to a stratification of the meta game, in all likelihood.

A new series of missions will also be introduced and phase 2 of the Year of the Griffin will officially open, which should bring in game changes to the Battle mode and constant updates regarding Duels, Brawls and the single player sector.

12 agosto – Naraka Bladepoint

On August 12, Naraka Bladepoint will arrive, an action video game strongly focused on the online multiplayer sector. The title has already had several free betas particularly appreciated by users and which have reached significant peaks of activity, but finally the date of its definitive release is approaching.

In terms of gameplay, the game offers a wide range of playable characters, each with their own characteristics and skills that you will need to learn how to make the most of to emerge victorious from the clashes.

12 agosto – Foreclosed

A particularly interesting August release is Foreclosed, a cyberpunk-tinged video game coming to PC and console. The title stands out for a truly unusual aesthetic sector, which strongly refers to the comic book imagination and which makes the gameplay a sort of interactive comic.

As for gameplay, the game seems to be an effective mix between the RPG and the graphic novel, all with a completely free and customizable character development system. Foreclosed will arrive on August 12 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S.

August 12 – SkateBird

In fact, in the title we will play the role of a program that, having acquired self-awareness, tries to escape from the mainframe in which it is confined.

At the core of the combat system are our digital protagonist’s hacking skills and various attack techniques, which are likely to creatively exploit the ethereal nature of the program.
