The summer season is quickly winding down, and with the slowest part of the year behind us, it’s full steam ahead for the gaming industry. Let’s take a look at what the final leg of summer has to offer!
Kicking off the month is Ultra Street Fighter IV on the 5th, available for PS3 and Xbox 360, with the Windows version arriving on the 8th. Next up is 7 Days To Die, creeping its way onto Windows, Mac and Linux machines on the 17th. Following that, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare finally makes its way to PS3 and PS4 on August 19th. Last but not least, First Light, the first DLC package for last season’s Infamous: Second Son arrives on August 26th for the PS4.
