FIFA 22, NHL 22, Far Cry 6, Guardians of the Galaxy and Metroid Dread – October is shaping up to be an action-packed month for players across all platforms. While you can step into the new club jerseys of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in FIFA 22, you can also try your hand at ice hockey in the Frostbite-powered NHL 22. In Far Cry 6, you’ll be able to take on Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito, as he voices the evil dictator of Yara Island. If you crave unrestricted superhero action, Guardians of the Galaxy is set to hit all major platforms in October. Nintendo Switch users also have a reason to rejoice as the highly anticipated Metroid Dread is finally ready to break cover as well.

When it comes to remasters, you can choose between the mind-blowing horror Alan Wake Remastered and the high-octane action of Crysis Remastered Trilogy.

When: October 1st
Or: PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series S / X

EA is back with its annual FIFA release once again. So what’s up this time? Certainly not the cover star, French World Cup-winning hero Kylian Mbappé, who also graced the cover of FIFA 21 (review) last year. Users on current gen consoles or PCs will have much the same experience as recent titles, except for a few changes to the animation of the cutscenes here and there. However, next-gen console owners will be able to experience HyperMotion technology that promises improved AI, including better player animations and more realism.

FIFA 22: Everything you need to know

Alan Wake remastered

When: October 5
Or: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S / X

If you’ve ever played Remedy Entertainment’s anxiety-provoking horror action title from 2010, you’ll know what to expect. For those of you who haven’t, Alan Wake follows the story of an eponymous novelist who tries to use supernatural forces to find his missing wife. The original game was marked by impressive visuals – way ahead of its time at the time – and unique horror survival gameplay that constantly put you on the run. The remastered version will bundle two DLCs, The Signal and The Writer, and also bring enhanced 4K visuals at 60 fps. Alan Wake Remastered a would have been rated for Nintendo Switch, but nothing has been confirmed by the developers so far.

Far cry 6

When: October 7
Or: PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, Xbox Series S / X

The Far Cry series has always been known for its villains and unrestricted open-world gameplay. However, none of the villains in the series have enjoyed as much popularity as Vaas from Far Cry 3, brilliantly voiced by Michael Mando. This time around, his co-villain in the Breaking Bad universe, Giancarlo Esposito (who played the devious Gus Fring) is expected to voice “El Presidente” Antón Castillo, the Machiavellian dictator of the fictional island of Yara, where he lives. Far Cry 6 unfolds. Players will experience a new Caribbean setting, as well as several new companions (including a crocodile) as well as a new class of weapons (including Boba Fett-style rocket backpacks).

Far Cry 6 talks about Cuba, but Yara is not Cuba

Terror Metroid

When: October 8
Or: Nintendo Switch

Originally planned as a Nintendo DS title in the 2000s, Metroid Dread overcame several technical limitations to break cover on the Switch. Metroid Dread will choose from 2002 Metroid Fusion, following the side-scrolling adventures of bounty hunter Samus Aran as she takes evil EMMI robots to the planet ZDR. While staying true to the proven 2D gameplay of previous titles, Metroid Dread also promises stealth elements.

Back 4 Blood

When: 12 october
Or: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S / X

Spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead 2, Back 4 Blood brings back the four-player co-op that popularized the zombie shoot-em-up series. It will also have an eight-player “Swarm” PvP mode. The principle is pretty much the same as the hordes of zombie franchises. You play as one of the “cleaners”, a group of survivors who must face and survive the multitudes of zombies (called “Ridden”) created by a worldwide epidemic of a parasite. To keep things interesting, Back 4 Blood will feature card-based loading before each session, where players can stack various abilities to improve their gameplay. The AI, in turn, will also use corruption cards to throw a key into the works in the form of larger hordes, environmental obstacles, and more.

Remastered Crysis Trilogy

When: October 15
Or: PC, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series S / X

Crysis is back in a shiny new NanoSuit. Known for its extremely impressive PC demands, all three Crysis games were marked by gorgeous graphics and memorable NanoSuit powers. Remasters from the Crysis 1, Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 single player campaigns will be available as an all-in-one package. Customers can also pick up individual copies of Crysis 2 Remastered and Crysis 3 Remastered, which will be available on October 15. The remastered editions will bring visual enhancements throughout, as well as 60 fps gameplay up to 4K resolution.

NHL 22

When: October 15
Or: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S / X

Even if you are not a huge fan of ice hockey, EA’s NHL games are still a lot of fun to play. NHL 22 is the first in the franchise to use the Frostbite game engine, promising greatly revised player graphics and animations. NHL 22 will feature Superstar X-Factors, which are just abilities that make every player feel different and more similar to their real-life counterparts. So if you decide to try a different sports game this year (other than FIFA or NBA), NHL 22 is a great choice.

guardians of the galaxy

When: October 26
Or: PC, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series S / X

It’s time to shoot your rocket boots as Guardians of the Galaxy is about to make its video game debut. The title has nothing to do with the MCU movies – the characters don’t even look like their actor counterparts. You will be able to play as a Star-Lord and use his many gadgets to blast enemies. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to play as Drax, Gamora, Groot, or Rocket. However, Star-Lord will be able to issue commands to each of the Guardians, and all characters have unique skills and abilities that can be intelligently used to your advantage. Judging by the trailers, the game looks just as ironic as the James Gunn movies.

Age of Empires IV

When: October 28
Or: computer

Age of Empires games have always been considered the apotheosis of real-time strategy games. The last original title, Age of Empires III, was released in 2005. Barring a few remasterings, this is the first time fans of the series will be able to play a brand new Age of Empires title. True to classic gameplay, Age of Empires IV will bring eight civilizations to the table, including those of the Delhi Sultanate and the Mongols. However, it’s unclear whether this title will have the Cobra Car (that super cool indestructible sports car) cheat code activated from Age of Empires II.

Republic of the Cavaliers

When: October 28
Or: PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, Xbox Series S / X

From developers Ubisoft Annecy, the same studio behind 2016’s Steep, comes its spiritual successor Riders Republic which promises to go beyond the snow-capped mountains without compromising the high-adrenaline gameplay. Riders Republic expands the horizon with an action-packed open map that features elements of US national parks such as Bryce Canyon and Yosemite Valley. Over 50 players can compete against each other in activities such as mountain biking, wingsuiting, and skiing. An invite-only beta rolled out in August for a limited time, and here’s what we thought of the game at the time.

Mario Party Superstars

When: 29 october
Or: Nintendo Switch

Over 100 minigames remade from previous games in the Mario Party series, five reimagined Nintendo 64 era maps (including the iconic Space Land), and a collection of all your favorite Super Mario characters – Mario Party Superstars seems like a fun title to pick up on your Switch.
