FIFA 20, Gears 5, Borderlands 3 and more games we’re looking forward to in September 2019

PES 2020, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, Contra: Rogue Corps too are releasing in the coming month

Come September and the gaming industry gets as busy as the peak Delhi wedding season.

It can get daunting in a situation like this to decide which game deserves your hard-earned money. Good thing, we’re here to scope it out, and give you a look at the games that we are looking forward to in the coming month. Here’s our list in no particular order.

eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2020

Like every year it’s a cat and mouse chase between the releases of PES and FIFA games.

There’s already a demo out, so you can see for yourself if this will be your football game of choice this year.

We’re finally getting a legitimate sequel to Borderlands 2, and before you ask – no the Pre-Sequel doesn’t count.
