via: (PlayStation)

September is the beginning of prime video game season. With the holiday months on the horizon, game publishers are putting their best foot forward. This month in particular looks to provide quite a variety of top-notch games to avid gamers. Anybody who enjoys video games will not be disappointed in September's offerings.

Massive triple-A titles like the "Gears of War" and the "Borderlands" series are receiving long-awaited sequels. Fans of each franchise will be able to purchase "Gears 5" and "Borderlands 3" in early September. Quite a few sports games are releasing this month as well. Popular titles like "NBA 2K20" and "FIFA 20" are kicking their way into game stores in September too, alongside other sports games. 

With all these sequels, expansions, and remasters to look forward to, September promises to jump-start the gaming world with a jolt of fun before autumn is upon us!

What to be excited for:

“Catherine: Full Body” (September 3)

The first “Catherine” game delighted players with an intriguing plot. It’s not every day that a puzzle game gets such a fine degree of storytelling. Luckily for those who enjoyed the quirky tale of a man caught up in strange dreams, “Catherine” is getting a sequel in September. “Catherine: Full Body” appears to engage in the same level of storytelling as the first game, while also upping the ante when it comes to those intense puzzles.

“Gears 5” (September 10)

The “Gears of War” series is one of the Xbox’s most well-known franchises, right up there alongside “Halo.” This September, “Gears 5” will finally release, giving fans the chance to learn what exactly is happening to Kait Diaz after the revelations of “Gears of War 4.” The sequel will also introduce players to a new Escape mode that tasks groups of three with fleeing from the Swarm.

“Borderlands 3” (September 13)

Mayhem is on the menu in “Borderlands 3.” The highly-anticipated cooperative shooter is slated for a September release, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Games with an emphasis on split screen are in short supply, and “Borderlands 3” could fill that hole in our lives. Players should prepare themselves for “Borderlands’” off-the-cuff humor and extensive amount of loot.
