There are only a few months left in 2019, but there are plenty of games still on the horizon. September is packed with tons of notable releases for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch, from triple-A titles like Borderlands 3 and Gears 5 to some smaller gems such as River City Girls and Untitled Goose Game.
Of course, that’s just scratching the surface of what this month has to offer. Divinity: Original Sin II arrived on Switch following Nintendo’s September Direct, while Dragon Quest XI comes to the console later this month. Sports fans have a lot to look forward to this month too between eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2020, FIFA 20, NBA 2K20, and NHL 20.
There are plenty of other titles on the way this month. We’ve rounded up all the biggest releases of September 2019 below. For a look at all the other big games still to come this year, be sure to check out our complete list of game release dates in 2019.
Gears 5 (Xbox One, PC) — September 10
The newest installment in the Gears of War franchise officially launches on September 10, but players who spring for the game’s Ultimate edition (or subscribe to Xbox Game Pass) can jump in beginning September 6. Gears 5 casts players in the role of Kait Diaz, who throughout the course of the game will uncover secrets about her family’s history and the origins of the Locust. In addition to the campaign, Gears 5 boasts several other game types, including the fan-favorite Horde and Versus modes, which this time feature cameos from Halo: Reach and other unexpected crossovers.
Borderlands 3 (PS4, Xbox One, PC) — September 13
Arriving five years after the release of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, the latest installment in Gearbox’s loot-shooter series, Borderlands 3, lands on PS4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store on September 13. This time around, the game features four new Vault Hunters–Amara the Siren, Moze the Gunner, Zane the Operative, and FL4K the Beastmaster–each of whom has three skill trees that contain distinct abilities and perks. Unlike past titles, you’ll also be able to travel to other planets during the adventure, and Gearbox has a variety of free events and other post-release content in the pipeline for the game.

Nintendo’s marquee release for Switch this month, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, arrives alongside the new Nintendo Switch Lite on September 20. A remake of the classic Game Boy game of the same name, Link’s Awakening finds the titular hero stranded on the mysterious Koholint Island, where he’ll need to gather the eight Instruments of the Sirens to rouse the Wind Fish from its slumber and make his way home. While the game looks to be a faithful reimagining of the original, it also introduces some new content, namely a dungeon editor that allows you to arrange your own custom labyrinths.
