All Game Releases for October 2018.
Traditionally, Autumn is a busy period for game releases, as the world gears up for the holidays. September brought Autumn to a good start this year, with numerous exciting releases. Now it’s time for October to show its hand, as we head into the thick of the season. Let’s take a look at all the game releases for October 2018. As usual, we’ll take a look at some highlights before we go into the full release schedule. Highlights consist of some of the bigger, most anticipated releases, mixed in with some personal selections:
Forza Horizion 4
PC, Xbox One | Playground Games | 2nd October, 2018 | Link
The fourth instalment of the Foza Horizon series, the open-world arcade racing game. Set in a fictionalised representation of the UK, featuring a staggering number of over 450 licensed cars. Forza Horizon 4 will introduce changing seasons, and a shared synchronised world, with up to 72 players per server. But don’t worry, the game is also playable offline.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
PC, PS4, Xbox One | Ubisoft Quebec | 5th October, 2018 | Link
Successor to Assassin’s Creed Origins, which was generally considered to be a much needed revamp for Ubisoft’s biggest franchise. Set in the year 431 BCE, portraying a fictional story of the historical Peloponnesian War. The game will feature more RPG elements than any previous AC game, with dialogue options, branching quests, and even multiple endings.
Super Mario Party
Switch | Nd Cube | 5th October, 2018 | Link
The long running Super Mario-themed party game debuts on the Nintendo Switch. Of course, the traditional Party Mode makes a return; with up to four players navigating a board, and competing with one another on a variety of minigames. Another game mode, Partner Party, will allow players to play in teams of two. The game will be the first Super Mario Party game to feature online multiplayer, (although Party Mode will sadly be restricted to offline play).
Mark of the Ninja: Remastered
PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch | Klei Entertainment | 9th October, 2018 | Link
Remaster of classic stealth game, Mark of the Ninja, announced earlier this year. Featuring 4K resolution (on supported hardware), all new 5.1 surround sound, and the Special Edition DLC. This time around, the remaster is releasing on all current major platforms, so no excuses. Oh, and owners of the original game + DLC, will receive the remaster for free!
My Memory of Us
PC, PS4, Xbox One | Juggler Games | 9th October, 2018 | Link
One of my personal highlights from the Indie Arena Booth at Gamescom this year. Adventure game that reminisces the friendship of a boy and a girl during tough times. Featuring voice over by the legendary Sir Patrick Stewart. Also releasing on Switch sometime in Q1 2018.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
PC, PS4, Xbox One | Treyarch | 12th October, 2018 | Link
Black Ops 4 will be the first Call of Duty title without a traditional single-player campaign, much to the disappointment of some long-time fans. Instead, replaced with a battle royale mode called Blackout. Whilst the initial reaction of yet another battle royale mode may be to roll your eyes, reception of the game mode’s beta has been mostly upbeat.
Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales
PC, PS4, Xbox One | CD Projekt Red | 23th October, 2018 | Link
Interestingly, a single-player spin-off of Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, which itself is a standalone adaptation from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The game follows Meve, queen of Lyria and Rivia, as see faces an imminent threat of invasion. The game consists of narrative-driven exploration, puzzles and card mechanics. The PC version will be exclusive to gog.com.
Red Dead Redemption 2
PS4, Xbox One | Rockstar Studios | 26th October, 2018 | Link
The long awaited, highly anticipated, Western themed, action-adventure open world game, from Rockstar Studios. Despite the title, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be a prequel to Red Dead Redemption. Players assume the role of Arthur Morgan, a member of the Dutch Van der Linde gang. Like Rockstar’s previous best selling title, Grand Theft Auto 5, Red Red Redemption 2 will feature a single-player mode, and an online mode.
