This October is quite a phenomenal month for game releases. There were some games that were moved to later release dates (I’m looking at you Ni Nu Kuni 2!!) but nevertheless we are still left with a constant stream of great games to play.
Here are a few that we are looking forward to.
Battle Chasers: Nightwar (PS4, Xbox One, PC on October 3)
This game has been on our radar ever since initial art work was teased close to 2 years ago. It’s a 3/4th perspective action adventure game with touches of crafting, survival and procedurally produced dungeons. It looks like it’s a good D&D style game that would be a great addition to the Switch library.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War (PS4, Xbox One, PC on October 10)
The sequel to the successful GPU-intensive Middle-earth game comes back with a new tale set between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
GT Sport (PS4 on October 17)
Played this at PAX this year and not only does the game look stunning (as expected!) but it actually feels that you can NOT brute force your way through the tracks like that previous 2 releases. the VR support is also gonna be a big draw!
South Park: The Fractured But Whole (PS4, Xbox One, PC on October 17)
The first SP RPG was full of the juvenile, asinine and yes unexpectedly fun gameplay. This sequel albeit super delayed shows even more promise.
Destiny 2 (PC on October 24)
Picture Destiny 2, which is currently Mike’s Diablo 3, in 21:9. The beta ALMOST made me not buy it on PS4. Expect this to draw crowds!
Super Mario Odyssey (Switch on October 27)
It about damn time! Been waiting for a proper Mario game to come to the Switch. Many hours will be spent exploring and trying to get 100% completion for sure!
The game release calendar also includes:
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen (PS4, Xbox One on October 3)
Forza Motorsport 7 (Xbox One, PC on October 3)
A Hat in Time (PC on October 5)
