By Akash KJ | Small Business

After a string of uneventful summer releases, gamers on the Xbox platform can finally look forward to some exciting new games that are going to be released during August 2014 for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Xbox One

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition

Release Date: Aug 19 EU and NA

Diablo III takes place twenty years after the events of Diablo II. While Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal might have been defeated, players have a new problem to worry about. The Worldstone, which once defended the inhabitants of the world of Sanctuary from the forces of both Heaven and Hell, has been destroyed, and evil once again stirs in Tristram. Gamers will have to choose from the roles of one of six powerful character classes -- Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Monk, Witch Doctor, Wizard, or the all-new Crusader -- and begin a dark journey to save the world of Sanctuary from ancient and sinister forces.

Arriving on Xbox 360 also.

Madden NFL 15

Release Date: Aug 26 NA and Aug 29 EU

This edition of the franchise brings many welcome features and enhancements including the most interesting defensive gameplay control in franchise history. Apart from winning the championships, players can also build a great defence that's strong enough to challenge the best offence in the game.

Apart from this, gamers will also experience an entirely new broadcast presentation that delivers Madden NFL game day in an amazing format with dramatic camera angles and a plethora of new pre-game and halftime features.
