The polls are now open for the PlayStation Players’ Choice Award for September 2018. A number of high-profile titles are up for the award, including two PlayStation VR titles, Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner M∀RS and Transference.

Players can head to the US PlayStation Blog in order to cast their vote for the best new title released on PlayStation during September 2018.

Among the nominees are popular AAA titles such as Marvel’s Spider-Man, FIFA 19 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, but there are also some smaller and independent titles such as Hollow Knight and The Gardens Between.
