Back for another year, Madden NFL 23 lands on PS5 and PS4 on August 19.
Featuring “all-new ways to control your impact with every decision,” Madden NFL 23 will let you call the shots in Franchise with free agency and business logic updates. You’ll be able to play through the history books in Face of the Franchise: The League and “assemble the most powerful roster in all of Madden Ultimate Team.” Plus
The PS5 version of the game appears to be where it is this year, with a new ‘FieldSENSE’ system that promises “consistent, ultra-realistic gameplay” and “more control across the field in every game mode.” We’ll have to wait until we get our hands on it to be sure, but it looks like 23 could be an exciting release.
Towards the end of the month we have Saints Row, an original title that is said to be “the biggest and best Saints Row playground ever created.”
Promising “extraordinary scenes and exclusive surprises”, the game takes place in the sprawling world of Santo Ileso. We’ll let the official propaganda take things from here:
As the future Boss, with Neenah, Kevin, and Eli by your side, you will form The Saints and take on Los Panteros, The Idols, and Marshall as you build your empire on the streets of Santo Ileso and fight for control of the city. . Ultimately, Saints Row is the story of a new company, it’s just that the business The Saints are in turns out to be a crime.
One game that needs no introduction, although yes, this is basically an introduction, is The Last of Us Part I, a remake of Naughty Dog’s genre-defining epic that originally released on PS3.
