Entering the fall season leads to a rise in new offerings. The PC game releases in September 2021 include Deathloop, Tales of Arise, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, Life is Strange: True Colors, Lost in Random, Astria Ascending, and many others. We’ll also see expansions, DLCs, and remasters, such as Diablo II: Resurrected, Total War Saga: Troy – Mythos, and Outer Wilds – Echoes of the Eye. Oh, and Amazon’s New World MMORPG will also come out. Hopefully, it doesn’t get delayed again.
