October means three things: New TV, Halloween, and quality video games. Here are 5 games to look forward to in October. Oh, and we won’t make you click through five pages to look at the entire list.

Halo 5: Guardians

The latest game in the Halo series, 343’s Halo 5: Guardians will bring the fight to the Xbox One. New to the game is four player co-op play and a far more robust online mode. Get ready to finish the fight on the Xbox One when it is released on October 27, 2015.

Rock Band 4

Everything old is new again with Rock Band 4, the latest entry in Harmonix’s long-running rhythm game series. Gameplay sticks to the style found in previous entries, albeit with new wrinkles like “Freestyle Solos” and “Freeform Melodies” for vocals. Get ready to jam to more than 60 songs when Rock Band 4 comes out for all major platforms on October 6, 2015.

Guitar Hero Live

Proving that Rock Band is not the only rhythm game in town, Guitar Hero is looking to make a comeback with Activision’s Guitar Hero Live. A more realistic tone and a new button structure is in place, making for a wildly different experience. Grab your axe when Guitar Hero Live comes out on October 20, 2015 for all major platforms.

Get ready for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate when it launches for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on October 23, 2015.

WWE 2K16

2K Games’ WWE 2K16 will be the biggest WWE game yet. With over 120 wrestlers, an appearance from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 Terminator, and the return of many match types will make this one to remember. WWE 2K16 will come out for all major platforms on October 27, 2015.

Casey Scheld

Casey Scheld has more than 15 years of experience in the gaming industry as a community manager, social media director, event specialist, and (of course) gaming editor. He has previously worked with gaming start-ups like Raptr, publishers like Konami, and roller derby girls at PAX West (check out Jam City Rollergirls)! Gamers Heroes is a passion project for him, giving him a chance to tap into the underground side of gaming. He is all too eager to give these lesser-known heroes of the indie space the attention they so rightly deserve, seeking out the next gem and sharing it with the world. Previously making appearances at events like CES, GDC, and (the late) E3, he is all too happy to seek out the next big thing.
