New PS5 and PS4 game releases for August 2021

It was a slow July for the most part for PlayStation, although there were a few intriguing indies release, including Tribes of Midgard and A Plague Tale: Innocence. But relative to the first half of the year, it was a slow month. Things pick up slightly for the PS5 and PS4 in August with console debut of Hades, the kickoff of Madden 22, and the PlayStation 4 release of Godfall.

Hades is obviously the most exciting game coming next month. 2020’s Game of the Year nominee was originally released for PC, but is finally coming to PS4 and PS5. Developed by Supergiant Games, who can seemingly do no wrong, Hades is a roguelike dungeon crawler in which you play as Zagreus, son of Hades, and attempt to escape Underworld to reach Mount Olympus. Hades received universal acclaim with many praising the characters and stories, the fast-paced and challenging combat, and the immersive world-building.

Then, of course, there’s the release of this year’s Madden NFL 22. I know we get the same joke how it’s just an updated roster every year, but Madden 22 on next-gen actually seems like an improvement over its predecessors thanks to the Dynamic Gameday feature which aims to create an authentic gameday environment and implement a deeper level of strategy with each game.

Godfall didn’t make much of a splash as a PS5 launch title, but it will hopefully fine renewed life on the PS4 when it releases next month. The game actually offers a fun combat  system and impressive visuals, but the story left a lot to be desired. I think it just got lost in the midst of games like Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls. Obviously Godfall on PS4 prboably won’t stack up to the PS5 version in terms of graphics, but it could offer some satisfying hack-and-slash gameplay.
