There’s a chill in the air, bringing the fall season and a maelstrom of new releases. On that note, here are 5 games we’re looking forward to in October. Oh, and we won’t make you click through five pages to look at the entire list.
5 Games We’re Looking Forward to in October
Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise
The anime and manga Fist of the North Star series makes its way to the world of video games once again with the release of SEGA’s Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise. Players will take control of Kenshiro, a successor of the martial art Hokuto Shinken, as he traverses a post-apocalyptic Earth to find his kidnapped fiancee Yuria. The game will feature similar mechanics to the Yakuza series of games, allowing players to traverse Eden, which pays host to both fights and minigames. We’re especially looking forward to the latter of those things, which includes bartending, baseball, racing, and other activities.
Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise will come out worldwide for the PlayStation 4 on October 2.
Soul Calibur VI
Bandai Namco’s weapon-based fighter gets a new entry with the release of Soul Calibur VI. The one-on-one fights in a 3D plane still remain, but new mechanics like the Reversal Edge, which gives players the chance to defend against an oncoming attack and quickly strike back, have been included. We’re looking forward to experiencing its unique aesthetics, which take place in an alternate 16th century.
Soul Calibur VI will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 19.
Forza Horizon 4
Developed by Playground Games and published by Microsoft Studios, Forza Horizon 4 takes the open world racing series and brings it to Britain. 450 licensed cars will be included, along with a route creator that will enable players to create their own races. We’re looking forward to experiencing its synchronised shared world, which supports up to 72 players.
Forza Horizon 4 will come out for the Xbox One and PC on October 2.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Ubisoft takes players to ancient Greece in the year 431 BCE with the release of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Players will take on the role of either Alexios or Kassandra, and must choose between controlling a mercenary for either Athens and the Delian League or the Peloponnesian League, led by Sparta. A notoriety system will be in place, along with dialogue options, branching quests, and multiple endings. We’re looking forward to experiencing this open world, one full of options and combat.
The game will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 5.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Rockstar Games returns to the wild west in the release of Red Dead Redemption 2. Players will take control of Arthur Morgan, who is a member of the Dutch Van der Linde gang. The Honor system from the original Red Dead Redemption makes a return, along with both single-player and online multiplayer components. We’re looking forward to getting absorbed into its world, one filled with settlements, towns, and other areas packed with detail.
Red Dead Redemption 2 will come out for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26.
What we at Gamers Heroes are looking forward to the most:
We at Gamers Heroes are looking forward to Red Dead Redemption 2 the most. Rockstar Games has an impeccable track record, and the amount of attention-to-detail put into this Western-themed appears to be unrivaled in this day and age.
