New Game Releases: Week of October 21, 2018

Almost exactly two years after it was announced, Red Dead Redemption 2 is here. Also more Spider-Man, single-player Gwent, and dancing.

As we begin a week that has no doubt been marked on many fans' calendars, let us look at who is willing to go toe-to-toe with Rockstar Studio's Wild West Goliath.

On Tuesday, October 23, players are invited to swing back into Spider-Man for its first DLC release, The Heist. Hot on the heels of last week's addition of NG+ and increased difficulty, the DLC brings more Black Cat, more costumes, and more enemies to PS4's high-flying blockbuster.

The Heist is the beginning of Spider-Man's three-part DLC package, The City That Never Sleeps.

Alternatively, fans of Gwent, The Witcher's digital card game, can look forward to Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales on PC.

Set in the world of The Witcher, Thronebreaker features a new story, exploration, and a single-player Gwent experience.

And for those of you who just want to dance, Ubisoft's Just Dance 2019 is bringing Bruno Mars, Cardi B., and 40 chart-toppers to PS4, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii, and Wii U.

Then it is Friday, October 26, a yet unrecognized holiday, a day where streets will be empty and a mysterious pandemic will cause millions to call in sick to work. It will be a day where we will all sit down and play Red Dead Redemption 2.

A friendly reminder: If you pre-ordered a digital version of the Western, go pre-load it now because it's quite big. At minimum, the sequel is a 99GB download, and you do not want to be the only person on the planet waiting for the game to load. Do you?

  • Cities: Skylines Industries DLC (PC)
  • Just Dance 2019 (PS4, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U)
