Here is a list of the some of the best and most interesting looking games coming out in October. We hope this will point you in the direction of something that you hadn't known about before, or at the very least, remind you that something will soon be available to buy with money!
Battlefield 1 attempts to liven up the series' typical modern military setting by throwing the conflict back in time to the middle of World War I. Making space for horses, biplanes, and bayonets in a bleak period of the history of warfare, Battlefield 1 may just be the refresher that the series needs.
Titanfall 2 is the sequel to the burst of innovation that was the short-lived giant mech/ground combat multiplayer FPS Titanfall. Based on what we've seen so far, Titanfall 2 looks like it seeks to do nothing but build on the foundation laid by the original. Changes include six new playable titans, loads of new weapons, and an actual single-player campaign with a more coherent plot than the first game. If luck is on its side, and Respawn Entertainment has worked hard enough, Titanfall 2 may be the game-changing experience that its predecessor promised to be.
Little needs to be said about Skyrim Special Edition. It's the classic Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but with improved graphics, including re-done lighting and textures. Official mod supports on both console and PC and the original game's single-player DLC are also included. You'll also receive the Special Edition for free if you already have Skyrim: Legendary Edition on PC. It's just Skyrim, but bigger, shinier, and a little more complete.
The excellent Shantae and the Pirate's Curse has been out on multiple platforms for quite a while, but it will finally be receiving a physical release for 3DS this October. A new mode will also be added on in the form of the arcade-style "Super Shantae Nab!!". If you haven't at least checked out Pirate's Curse by this point, this physical release would be a good jumping off point.
100ft Robot Golf looks like it could be one of the most hectic, entertaining and hilarious multiplayer games released in a while. The game offers up a 1-4 player local co-op experience, filled with four balls simultaneously in play, loads of giant robots, comedic announcers, and hilarious cardboard physics and clipping issues. It's a must have for PS4 owners looking for the perfect party game.
The highly-anticipated sequel to the surprise hit remake of Shadow Warrior is finally here, and it promises to be even more crammed with gore, weapons, and double entendre than the first game. The game, in addition, adds a more-openly designed world filled with new locations and characters. With newly added attacks and movement skills for combat diversity and mobility, Shadow Warrior 2 looks like it'll be quite the wild ride.
The release of Gears of War 4 makes it feel like the series never left. After a few years of relative silence following the mixed public reaction to Gears of War: Judgement, Gears of War 4 brings back a few key members of the original cast to continue with the original story, all gussied up for the jump to a new console generation. This time hopefully with a bit of added drama, Marcus Fenix will return with his own son on the battlefield to combat the resurfaced locust threat.
