Buyer’s Guide: 5 Must-Play Games of August 2020


Whether you’re a console or PC gamer, there is a wealth of exciting game releases heading your way this August. From vehicular chaos to kung-fu amphibians, here are the games you can’t afford to miss in August 2020.

Fast & Furious: Crossroads

Release date: 7 August 2020 (PS4 | Xbox One | PC)

Despite the Fast & Furious franchise dominating the big-screen, the high-octane series has never made a big splash in the video game world, but Fast & Furious: Crossroads hopes to change that. It’s essentially a racing/action game hybrid, which throws you into vehicular combat and racing scenarios inspired by the film series, but will deliver a whole new storyline and moments to gawk at. In addition to the single-player mode, it also has a multiplayer mode to challenge your friends in.

EA Sports UFC 4

Release date: 14 August 2020 ( Xbox One | PC)

If you’ve been itching for some mixed martial arts and over-the-top fight build-ups, EA Sports UFC 4 is on the cards for August, bringing a new Real Player Movement(RPM) system to clinches and takedowns, as well as new ways to inflict some serious ground-and-pound damage and new counter-attacks in order to escape. You can also take the action outside the arenas, with new backyard locations if you feel like you need a little more dust in your punches.

Release date: 20 August 2020 (Xbox One | PC)

Those who grew up in the 90s will know the name Battletoads, which tested the patience and difficulty tolerance of most young gamers. The side-scrolling beat-’em-up is getting a reboot, and like the original title, the game allows up to three players to play cooperatively as the titular Battletoads, namely Rash, Pimple, and Zitz, each with distinct play-styles, as they punch and kick their way through some zany levels and scenarios.
