Upcoming Games

Jason Messina, Writer

As we reach the middle of fall and the start of winter, the real season of gaming is upon us. More games are starting to flood the shelves for the holidays. All the big triple A titles are being released while also fighting for supremacy. Almost every week will have a new game coming out or even new software as we close upon the gift giving season.

Mafia 3 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – October 7

Paper Mario: Color Splash (Wii U) – October 7

Gears of War 4 (PC, Xbox One) – October 11

Microsoft’s over the shoulder shooter has always been popular for its story, graphics, gameplay, and multiplayer. The 5th installment is no different. The game will have a brand new story along with the latest horde mode and multiplayer modes we all love. While the game can be bought on Xbox one or through windows ten, as long as you buy it digitally you can play it on either.

Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration (PS4) – October 11

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Definitive Experience (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – October 11

PlayStation VR – October 13

Sony is releasing the first attempt at bringing the future of gaming to consoles. For the longest time, VR has been strictly used with PCs and even phones. Many believe that gaming will soon be at the point where everything is VR. Sony is putting its money in now to hopefully light a match before the fire starts. Many of the PlayStation games coming out will be strictly for the PSVR.

Shadow Warrior 2 (PC) – October 13

Batman: Return to Arkham (PS4, Xbox One) – October 18

Battlefield 1 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – October 21

LEGO Harry Potter Collection (PS4) – October 21

Civilization 6 (PC) – October 21

Titanfall 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – October 28

The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – October 28

For many the Elder Scrolls, Skyrim was a game that signified a major change in the industry. While revolutionizing open world games Skyrim impressed many with the sheer length, and scope of the word. No two people had the same experience and with most players logging a couple of hundred hours into it. Lots of players have been asking for a remastered version, and now almost five years later they’re getting it.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – November 4

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – November 4

PlayStation 4 Pro – November 10

Sony may be ahead in VR but is catching up in 4k. The PS4 pro is trying to compete with Microsoft’s Xbox One S. It has all the same features as the PS4 but with 4k and HDR support. It will play all the same games as the PS4 and look slightly prettier.

Dishonored 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – November 11

Nintendo NES Mini – November 11

Watch Dogs 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – November 15

Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection (PS4, Xbox One)- November 15

Pokemon Sun and Moon (3DS) – November 18

Final Fantasy 15 (PS4, Xbox One) – November 29

The Walking Dead: Season 3 A New Frontier (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – November

Most of November is filled with many triple-A titles. It is nearly impossible to narrow down which will be kings during the gaming season. Watch Dogs 2 and Dishonored 2 are both sequels coming out one trying to make up for a bad rep and the other trying to gain even more awards, and for many Nintendo fans the two new Pokemon games, sun and moon, can’t get here fast enough.

Steep (PC, PS4, Xbox One) – December 2

Dead Rising 4 (PC, Xbox One) – December 6
