Top 10 Games Coming Out October 2020

It’s the 10th month of 2020 and honestly, the end of this fairly stressful year can’t come fast enough. In the meantime, however, there’s a lot to look forward to this upcoming month. There are plenty of Halloween and Fall updates for all your favourite games including Animal Crossing: New Horizons and World of Warcraft‘s Shadowlands. But as usual, I try not to put DLC expansions or alternate console releases on this list. Keeping it new games only, with some exceptions of course.

And what a great selection of new games we have for you this October. From the long-awaited Watch Dogs: Legion to Ghostrunner and of course some spooky releases, there’s a lot of games to keep you entertained indoors. And for those who’ve started getting bored of your current multiplayer games this month has some upcoming titles for you in that department. Drake Hollow that’s part Pikmin tower defence and part Fortnite. There’s also The Survivalists which has major Don’t Starve Vibes. October is always a great month for gaming.


Drake Hollow By The Molasses Flood – Oct 1st

Drake Hollow has been a bit delayed in its launch but it’s out now and it has a whole tower defence/management, WWZ / Fortnite thing going for it. Instead of zombies though, there’s The Feral and the Drakes. You and your friends have stumbled upon The Hollow home of the Drakes. These vegetable looking type creatures that need your help. So you’ll need to make sure they’re fed, watered and entertained all while keeping them alive. Because clearly, all vegetables need entertainment. Protect your vegetable babies by harvesting resources, building traps and just swinging at the Feral with a good ole tennis racket. This game is hella fun and can support up to four of your friends in co-op.

Star Wars: Squadrons by Motive Studios – Oct 2nd

Woodsalt by Team Woodsalt – Oct 13th

A return to the golden age of RPGs, just one look at this game brings back all sorts of flashbacks. Most notably meeting the Turks in the OG Final Fantasy VII. 1000 years after Earth was evacuated you awaken on the planet Nu-Terra. Emcy, an Earth-born man along with the others who made it out of Earth alive are waiting to return home. But as civil unrest grows in the city a plot emerges to stop humanity from leaving. All this while Emcy is plagued by visions and messages from an unknown voice that nobody else can see or hear.

Explore the city, speak with the inhabitants and uncover the secrets of what’s happening here and on Earth. Each of your conversation trees can lead to numerous side-plots with their own branching storylines. And ultimately multiple endings as well as a secret ending for you to discover.

Ghostrunner is off the walls fast-paced, violent combat, in a post-apocalyptic science-fiction world. You’re a cybernetic ninja who can run on walls, slow time, dodge bullets in midair and slice up your enemies on the go. You live in this bleak, dystopian mega-city called Dharma Tower. The tower is a massive structure that houses everything a city would need to survive, with the poorest people and manufacturing units on the bottom and the richest residents living high above everything else.

But remember even though you can kill them with one hit, you too will die if they strike first.

Watch Dogs: Legion by Ubisoft – Oct 29th

London has fallen and you’re here to build the resistance and take it back in Watch Dogs: Legion. In the fall opportunists were the first to catch the important pieces. They’re in charge, and it’s up to you to make sure that position is only temporary. Take on a brand new Watch Dogs that introduces new melee systems and a wide range of weapons and abilities. The catch? Sometimes your combat has real consequences. If you use non-lethal force, the enemy will attempt to subdue and arrest you. If you shoot to kill, you risk having your characters permanently killed. Ready to resist?

Legion brings a neat twist over past Watch Dogs games: every NPC character is a potential protagonist for you to recruit to your cause. Each comes with their own traits and skills that you can use before hopping into another member of your budding resistance movement. There are hacker grandmas and nanobee controllers and rugby fanatics all over the city who may be receptive to DedSec’s cause.


The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope – Oct 30th

Following up on the studio’s previously successful multiplayer horror story Man of Medan comes the next chapter of The Dark Pictures Anthology. The anthology consists of a series of standalone interactive horror game. Think of it as a horror movie you watch with your friends but this time you can make the decision for your character. After thoroughly enjoying the Man of Medan game, minus the buggy QTEs I’m looking forward to the next tale Little Hope.

In this story four college students and their professor become stranded in the abandoned town of Little Hope. Trapped by an impenetrable fog they try desperately to escape whilst witnessing terrifying visions from the past. They must figure out the motivation of these apparitions before the evil forces at work drags each of their souls to hell. Abandon Hope…all who enter here.
