Now Playing: Top New Games Releasing This Week On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC -- September 9-15

September has officially arrived, and with it comes a new slate of games for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and even 3DS. While most of this year's big holiday releases are reserved for October and November, this month is still filled with some exciting new games across each platform. Along with marquee titles like Dragon Quest XI and Spider-Man, this month sees the official Xbox One release of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, while sports fans have the latest installments in NBA Live and FIFA to look forward to.

September is also home to a couple of major DLC releases. First is Destiny 2's Taken King-sized expansion, Forsaken, which introduces Gambit mode, new enemies, story missions, and a wealth of other content to the shooter. Switch's massive JRPG Xenoblade Chronicles 2 also receives its own sizable story expansion, Torna: The Golden Country, this month, which chronicles the downfall of the eponymous country 500 years before the events of the main game.

That's only scratching the surface of all the games September has to offer. You can see a list of the biggest releases for each platform this month below. For a broader look at all of the major titles coming throughout the rest of the year, be sure to check out our complete list of game release dates in 2018.

Ratchet & Clank developer Insomniac's highly anticipated Spider-Man game arrives exclusively on PS4 on September 7. This interpretation of the comic book hero takes place in an original, standalone universe separate from the comic series and puts players in the shoes of a more experienced, confident Spider-Man as he defends New York from a cabal of some of his most iconic villains, including Electro, Rhino, Scorpion, and Silver Sable.

The first installment in Dontnod's next episodic adventure, Life Is Strange 2, arrives on September 27.

Dontnod promises the game will offer even more branching choices, and some of the decisions players make in the free spin-off, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, will also carry over.
