Call of Duty’s annual release this time goes back to where the series truly exploded into the gaming juggernaut it has been for over the past decade. Modern Warfare is a reboot of the popular series that truly changed first-person shooters. After Black Ops IV removed its campaign, Modern Warfare is bringing it back with a story that is promising to challenge your idea of what is wrong and right in war. Of course, it’s not a Call of Duty game without multiplayer which will be bringing in night vision combat and the biggest maps in the series to date.

MediEvil Remake

MediEvil Remake

Platform: PS4

Release Date: October 25th

MediEvil was a game that originally released on the first PlayStation console in the 90’s. You play as Sir Daniel Fortesque, a dead knight resurrected by an evil sorcerer. The game has been completely remade from the ground up with better visuals but should still feel just like it did back in the day (like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon).

The Outer Worlds

The Outer Worlds

Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One (later on Nintendo Switch)

Release Date: October 25th

Outer Worlds is a giant world RPG much alike the Fallout series. So much like it in fact, that the game is being made by Obsidian, the studio that made Fallout: New Vegas and is being directed by Fallout creators Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky. Essentially, the game is set to be a more light-hearted Fallout set in space. You will have your skill trees, conversation choices, and will build up a list of followers to aid you on your journey. After the disappointment that was Fallout 76, The Outer Worlds should provide that big single player RPG players have been waiting a while for now.

Luigi’s Mansion 3

Luigi’s Mansion 3

Platform: Nintendo Switch

Release Date: October 31st

Luigi’s Mansion 3 makes its way onto the Switch appropriately on Halloween this year. Luigi has come to a fancy hotel along with Mario, Peach, and her Toads.
