October is right around the corner and it is bringing a lot of new cool games with it. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m definitely pumped about it, so let’s take a look at 7 of the awesome games coming out in October 2020.
Super Mario Bros 35
When I was a kid, I used to play Super Mario 64 on my Nintendo 64 and I have a feeling a lot of you did the same. If that’s the case, there are great news for all of us: a new Super Mario Bros 35 is set to be released on Oct. 1.
This game will be casual and fun, much like most things in the Super Mario franchise, and players will face against each other, battle royale style. We’re talking 35 players playing simultaneously through separate platforming levels, whilst defeating enemies, collecting coins, and trying to survive other player’s shenanigans. The last player on the field wins the match.
The game sort of resembles Fall Guys with its fun matches, with the exception that Super Mario Bros 35 is in 2D.
And one more thing: the game will only be playable until March 31, 2021.
Oct. 9, is bringing FIFA fans the latest edition of the game, with over 100 iconic players, a new interactive match simulation mode letting players jump in and out of matches as they please, and some other cool features. Those include things like a revamped growth system, and more transfer options, such as loans.
The Ultimate team mode will allow co-op play in many forms, such as Squad Battles, Division Rivals, and Friendly matches. In Fifa 21, players even get to customize their own stadiums with a bunch of cool props, such as statues, pyrotechnics, and so on.
G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout
G.I. Joe: Operation Blackout is a third-person shooter game based on the G.I. Joe franchise. It is the sequel to G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and players will take on the role of 12 different characters from the G.I. Joe team or the Cobra Command team. It is going public on Oct. 13.
All in all, players will get17 campaign missions. The game can be played in either single-player or co-op mode, or competitively in one of the 4-player modes: Capture the Flag, King of the Hill, Assault, and Deathmatch Arena.
There will be plenty of action, including over 18 weapons to choose from. Not only that, but players can get up to 36 different weapon skins and 12 character skins. Sounds cool enough.
CloudPunk is an adventure game coming out on Oct. 15, and is set in a futuristic and somewhat dystopian world.
The player will take on the role of Rania, a woman who makes deliveries from and to the illegal company Cloudpunk. Rania drives a flying car throughout the entire city, collecting and delivering mysterious packages and passengers.
Each decision in the game changes the outcome of the story, so forget about boring and predictable endings.
World of Warcraft: Shadowlands
A new WoW expansion is on its way, arriving on Oct. 27. This new expansion opens up the realm of the dead, also known as Shadowlands.
Shadowlands follows the story of Sylvanas Windrunner, the deposed Warchief of the Horde who travels to the Icecrown Citadel and decides to challenge Bolvar Frodragon, the Lich King. When defeating Bolvar, Sylvanas accidentally shatters the veil between the material world and the Shadowlands.
The rest of the story you’ll have to figure out on your own.
Watch Dogs: Legion
If you’re looking for an action-adventure game with an open world and plenty of twist, then look no further. Legion is the latest installment of Ubisoft’s iconic franchise of mass surveillance and cyber espionage Watch Dogs. It is set to come out on Oct. 29, and it looks quite promising.
This chapter is set in a futuristic version of London. The game has an open world for players to explore, and allows them to take control of many different characters throughout the game.
Watch Dogs: Legion features a co-op campaign mode where up to 4 players can play together. As for the story, it is focused on a hacker group by the name of DedSec, as they try to free the city’s inhabitants from the oppressive authority of antagonist Nigel Cass . Not only that, but they also have to uncover a big, dark conspiracy…
The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope
Ah, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope, my favorite on this list. I have mentioned this time and time again in my articles, but I love horror games. And The Dark Pictures games franchise is starting to win me over.
I mean, only one game has come out so far -- Man of Medan -- but it was exceptional! And by the trailer of Little Hope, I can tell it’s going to be a good one as well. It is coming out on Oct. 30, and it explores a new horror story with its own setting and character.
Much like the first game of the octology, we get to play multiple characters and each decision made influences the ending of the game. The mission is to have all characters survive, but one single bad decision can lead to the death of one or more of them.
Although my opinion might be biased, I can definitely say these are some of the most promising games for October. However, if these don’t really fit your gaming style, feel free to check out other games that came out recently and stay tuned for my list of upcoming games of November.
