Crimes, Death, and Doctors! This is what is awaiting the PC in August!

After June and July not being too exciting for the PC gamers, August comes with a refreshing tidal wave of fresh titles, long-awaited ports, and inspired throwbacks. Here are 5 games listed from the beginning to the end of the month.

August 1: Yakuza 0

SEGA’s legendary Japanese series finally comes to PC. Fight like hell through Tokyo and Osaka as junior yakuza Kiryu and Majima. With the mentality of “Doing ridiculous things as seriously as possible” the Yakuza series takes pride in being a mix of crime drama and stupidly taking everything else with the same seriousness. This includes slot car racing, bowling, Sega arcade games and phone sex hotlines. This is the ultimate prequel title taking place in the 1980s. So it is an excellent starting point for anyone who wants to get into this series. Included also is an amazing fighting system, with many brutal finishers. And all of that in an uncapped framerate and a 4k resolution!

August 7: Dead Cells

After a whole year in Early Access, the fast-paced action rogue-like that addicted many a player is finally officially coming out!

August 9: MONSTER HUNTER: WORLD

Another legendary series restricted to handheld for a while now. But in 2018 the game that created a new genre of “hunting games” came to consoles and now finally to the PC!
