The Best Games Releasing this October!

We’re almost through October, but keep your eyes peeled for some exciting games. With AAA titles taking a slight bump due to a shift in the preferences of gamers all over the world, developers are starting to put a lot more on the line, and boy, is the calendar stacked with a bunch of bangers, you’ll see. Here are some games that have either been released or are scheduled to be released this month:


Release date – 14th Oct.

Platforms – PC, Xbox X/S

It isn’t Spooktober without a disgustingly gory, horror game that leaves you with that inexplicably chilly feeling. Labeled as a “biopunk” game, the enthusiasts of this niche would be thrilled to add another title to their list. For others, it’s worth giving a try. Maybe you’ve always been a biopunker(?) and never knew it, or maybe you’ll start feeling disgusted and blame me for it. Hey, don’t shoot the messenger!

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection

Release date – 19th Oct.

Platform – PC

PC gamers rejoice for this gem is about to heal your itch for story-centric games. A massive hit on PlayStation, Unchartered and its standalone edition will be up for grabs. For those unaware, Uncharted (movie) has already been released this year, so grab some popcorn, watch the movie and play the game all in one night, dare you!

PGA Tour 2k23

Release date – 14th Oct.

Platforms – PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox X/S, Xbox One

I get it, golf to some appears boring. But you know what isn’t boring? The game, probably. Jokes apart, it is pretty fun, thanks to a variety of modes to try like MyPlayer, online casual, Topgolf, and even a Designer mode where you can either create your own golf course or play the ones made by other players. You can also choose to play as an authentic pro, for both male and female golfers.

Overwatch 2

Release date – 4th Oct.

Platforms – PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch

The 5v5 online battlefield is no place for the losers. With new maps as well as heroes added to the original roster of Overwatch, there’s much more room to experiment with your play style. Although it is free-to-play, customizability is limited unless you purchase the battle pass or something shiny from the Item shop. Also, you can fully expect Blizzard Ent. to launch new content with the release of new seasons. So, if you’re in the market for a long-lasting competitive shooter, Overwatch 2 might be for you.

Gotham Knights

Release date – 21st Oct.

Platforms – PC, Playstation 5, Xbox X/S

It’s time to deliver justice in style! Play as Nightwing, Robin, Batgirl, or Red Hood in an open world that is full of crime and evil, and fill the void left behind by the Dark Knight. The game features a campaign mode that can be played either solo or with a friend (co-op). However, with a heavy focus on the storyline, the actual gameplay is what you may find unsatisfactory and wanting for more. Well, if that makes you not want the game anymore, you’ll be seriously missing out on some Harley Quinn action. Think twice, my friend…

Bayonetta 3

Release date – 28th Oct.

Platform – Nintendo Switch

Based on just the gameplay trailer that was out last year, not much is known but a lot is expected. There is a decent variety of gameplay mechanics, the graphics look pretty cool (for a Switch game), and your beloved witch returns! Even for those who are new to the hack-and-slash genre, Bayonetta 3 seems to be an ideal game to try, if your Switch still has a hefty 15 GBs left.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Release date – 28th Oct.

Platforms – PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox X/S, Xbox One

So, which Modern Warfare is this? Is this supposed to be Call of Duty 15 or is it only a renewed version of the 2009-hit Modern Warfare 2? It is getting pretty hard to keep count of the new releases by Activision simply because of how hard it is to determine the correct chronological order of play. What isn’t hard to determine is the fact that all new Call of Duty games look absolutely crisp, and the online multiplayer is tons of fun. Although the “pleasantries” of voice chat in online lobbies never changed, it is still enough to bring back some sweet nostalgic memories of learning new words online.

Final Word

Filling almost all genres possible, October is THE month for gaming and emptying pockets. From competitive shooters to gripping story-focused games, the power to choose what to play stays in your hands. And if you don’t like any, there’s always the good old backlog left for you to sift through.

Also, if I end up not posting about these games for a few weeks, it’s probably because I’m busy playing them. Happy gaming, soldier!
