October-games

Batton down the hatches! Man all turrets and prepare thine butt for an onslaught on your wallet the likes of which are only seen once a year! The fourth quarter of the year officially kicks off in October, and you know what that means: Titans on the horizon, powered by the fuel of a AAA hype machine and marching towards your wallet with a take no prisoners attitude.

While November may have the biggest games of the year on the horizon, October is an opening salvo that’ll test the mettle of any disciplined gamer who claims to be capable of avoiding the FOMO brigades. The heavyweights in this spooktacular month are many and varied: Ubisoft and Bungie launch a two-pronged attack with service games in the form of Ghost Recon: Breakpoint and Destiny 2: Shadowkeep on day one, October 15 sees the launch of Overwatch on the Nintendo Switch and the end of the month will see Call of Duty flex its mighty annual muscles once again.

May the gods have mercy on your bank balance, because October certainly won’t.
