Madden NFL 21 - 28th August
The latest entry in EA's ongoing American football series arrives at the end of this month. EA Sports is bringing "improved ball carrier mechanics" to the table this time, as well as better pass rush positions and plenty more enhancements. If you purchase the PS4 version, you'll qualify for a free upgrade to the PS5 version when it's out, which is a nice bonus.
Marvel's Avengers - 4th September
After some delays, Square Enix's take on the band of superheroes is nearly upon us. Featuring the likes of Thor, Iron Man, and Hulk as playable characters, the game is a Destiny-like action title with unique movesets for each hero. This game also benefits from a free PS5 upgrade if you own the PS4 version, so you know what to do.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 - 4th September
Also out on the same day as Avengers is this remake collection of the first two Tony Hawk games. Given the same treatment as the Crash and Spyro trilogies, this duo of PS1 classics is being revamped with modern visuals but familiar gameplay. It also retains most of the original soundtrack, and features enhanced creation modes so you can share your skate parks with the world. If you've been craving a new skateboarding game, this will certainly scratch the itch.
