It gets harder and harder every year to interpret the NFL rulebook, but one thing is always certain… the latest entry in the Madden NFL series will be the best-selling game in August.
That axiom held true once again this year, as The NPD Group declared that Madden NFL 18 was the best-selling game of last month. August 2017’s other big sellers include Grand Theft Auto V (#2), Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (#3), Splatoon 2 (#4), The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (#5), and the newly-launched Agents of Mayhem (#16).

It’s yet another big week for the PlayStation Store, and Naughty Dog is leading the way with a new Uncharted adventure and the return of Jak & Daxter.
Nathan Drake is taking a well-earned (and possibly permanent) vacation, but Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross will help PS4 fans get used to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Players will venture out in search of the Golden Tusk of Ganesh, but they’ll have to contend with a “ruthless warmonger” who also wants the prized artifact. The developer will also add Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy to the PlayStation Store this week as a PS2-On-PS4 re-release.
To football fans, a Super Bowl Ring might be the ultimate treasure, and PS4 owners will get the chance to reach the big game this week in Madden NFL 18. New features this year include a revamped visual presentation and the “Longshot” Story Mode (starring Oscar winner Mahershala Ali).
Elsewhere on the PlayStation Store, a trio of indie developers have added new titles to the digital storefront. PS4 owners will be able to investigate a murder in Ron Gilbert’s Thimbleweed Park, cast spells in Borealys Games’s Mages of Mystralia, and escape from a new set of prisons in Team17’s The Escapists 2.
Finally this week, Codemasters is back with another racing simulation, F1 2017, and Bandai Namco has remastered the entire Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm trilogy for the PS4. Also, Telltale is teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy once again in Episode 3: More Than A Feeling.
You can learn more about all of these games (and a few other new releases) after the break. (more…)
Are you ready for some football? EA Sports is getting ready to hike Madden NFL 18 into stores this week for the PS4 and Xbox One. The latest football sim from EA Tiburon makes use of the Frostbite Engine for the first time, as well as a Story Mode known as “Longshot.” And if you’re looking to pick up an Xbox One this week, Microsoft is now offering an Xbox One S 500GB + Madden NFL 18 Bundle.
Also available this week is a new Uncharted adventure from Naughty Dog. Nathan Drake hung up his spurs at the end of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, but Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross will carry on this week in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy for the PS4.
In typical Uncharted fashion, Chloe and Nadine are in a race against the bad guys in The Lost Legacy, but players interested in a different kind of race will be able to pick up F1 2017 for the PS4 and Xbox One. Codemasters has added a revamped Career Mode to F1 2017, as well as other improvements both online and off.
Career criminals might be interested in The Escapists 2, which will be available this week for the PS4 and Xbox One from Team17. New prisons, a new combat system, and a range of character customization options have moved The Escapists 2 to an even bigger house (pun so intended).
Finally this week, a trio of re-releases will bring some old favorites to new places. Telltale will launch Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure on the Switch. Koei Tecmo will compile together the four Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm games in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Legacy for the PS4 and Xbox One. And Bethesda will bundle together Wolfenstein: The New Order + Wolfenstein: The Old Blood in a single package on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
That’s all for now, but we’re definitely going to learn more about the Fall’s biggest upcoming releases during the 2017 Gamescom expo this week.
Sony kicked off its annual E3 Press Conference with a cinematic story trailer for the upcoming Uncharted 4 spinoff, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. The trailer shows Chloe and Nadine working together and being torn apart, all while searching for an ancient artifact.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be released for the PS4 on August 22nd.
Naughty Dog has announced (via the PlayStation Blog) that Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be available as a standalone digital download and as a retail disc release on August 22.
Like with The Last of Us: Left Behind, Naughty Dog is putting a considerable amount of developmental muscle into Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, and Creative Director Shaun Escayg discussed this new direction while also unveiling an early scene from the game:
In December we said that we’re approaching this project as a true Uncharted game — complete with its own deep narrative with complex character development, all-new destinations, refined gameplay, and blockbuster cinematic moments. We’re especially excited to have Chloe as our new protagonist and explore more of her story as she and Nadine venture across India in search of the fabled Tusk of Ganesh. To that end, we wanted to share a new scene from early on in the game as Chloe and Nadine try to unravel the clues leading to the Tusk’s location.
Because of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy’s expanded scope, the game will be priced at $39.99 ($49.99 CAD). However, players who purchased the Digital Deluxe Edition, Explorer’s Pack, or Triple Pack of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will receive a free copy of the downloadable version. And for fans jumping into the Uncharted series for the first time, anyone who pre-orders The Lost Legacy will receive a download code for the PS2-On-PS4 re-release of Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy.
Oh, and by the way, it looks like Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy will be available to download for the PS4 on August 22 as well.
