Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Overwatch 2, Plus: October Games on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X


October 2022, or rather, its second half is full of new game launches, giving the new first-person shooter Overwatch 2 enough time to maintain its relevance. If online multiplayer isn’t your forte, this month features several highly anticipated AAA entries, including Gotham Knights, A Plague Tale: Requiem, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remake. a period of open beta testing, providing successful results on the cross-play front. After a nearly year-long wait, PlayStation finally brings Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection to PC, allowing a new generation of gamers to experience the wilderness adventures of Nathan Drake and Chloe Frazer.

Nintendo continues to dominate on the handheld front, as Umbra Witch Bayonetta returns for a trio. Despite the addition of a new set of special spells, the game retains its fast-paced hack-and-slash methodology, allowing for hybrid experimentation in the field. Then there’s Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope – a returning collaboration between Nintendo and Ubisoft – where iconic characters from the franchise embark on an interstellar journey to rescue fellow Sparks.

And if that frenetic style of play tires you out, take a “relaxing” journey through the plague-ridden streets of France, guiding siblings Hugo and Amicia to a breathtaking island, in the upcoming Plague Tale sequel. Then there’s Bloody Ties, the highly anticipated zombie-parkour game Dying Light 2 DLC, where Aiden competes in a bloodsport tournament, only to realize there’s a lot at stake.

Filtering its team composition down to a 5v5 meta, at launch Overwatch 2 will function the same as the original 2016 game, but with a few new maps and hero tweaks. Technically speaking, it’s a redesign that will completely replace its predecessor, encouraging a faster playstyle and paving the way for the PvE element, which is planned for the future. The version, which will be released in October, will carry an “early access” label and will only allow online multiplayer, with a new battle pass system similar to most shooters these days.

Along with updated graphics and a geometric UI, Overwatch 2 brings three new heroes – Sojourn, Junker Queen, and the recently announced Kiriko – all of which will be available for competitive play. The “suite” brings support for cross-platform and cross-platform progression, as well as seasonal updates, guaranteeing new content every nine weeks. As to how long Blizzard manages to maintain/increase its player base with this new model will be revealed in time.

Set in the south of France, A Plague Tale: Requiem follows the story of Amicia and Hugo de Rune, siblings fleeing the French Inquisition and the Black Death. You have to put yourself in Amicia’s shoes, as she tries to search for an island that might offer a cure for Hugo’s blood disease.

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection

When: October 19
Where: PC

PlayStation’s latest PC port, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection is a remastered version of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy that will come to PC 10 months after it landed on PS5 in January. This action-adventure title will be fully optimized for PC, along with quality-of-life improvements that include a redesigned interface, GPU and VRAM sensing, and scale sliders, according to a previous report.

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will let you play as treasure hunters Nathan Drake and Chloe Frazer, but you’ll only have access to the single-player campaigns for both games. You can match your graphics settings to your hardware, while gaming at 4K resolution on ultrawide monitors. The game will also support DualSense controller input, as well as haptic feedback and vibration, just like Sony’s latest consoles.

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope

When: October 20
Where: Nintendo Switch

The heroes of the Mario and Rabbids universes must join forces to embark on a journey through different mysterious planets to save the Sparks from an evil entity named Cursa. This game is the result of a collaboration between Ubisoft and Nintendo. It also serves as a sequel to 2017’s Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope will arrive with a roster of nine heroes, including Mario, Bowser, Peach, Edge, Rabbid Rosalina, and more. You will also be able to associate the Sparks you save with the Heroes in your party to make them even more fearsome. The game will feature a strategic turn-based combat system that will also provide freedom of movement.

Gotham Knights

When: October 21
Where: PC, PS5, Xbox Series S/X

The upcoming open-world action-RPG from WB Games Montreal is based on the Batman: Gotham Knights comic book series. Batman (Bruce Wayne) and Police Commissioner Jim Gordon have passed away, and the job of keeping order (as vigilantes, of course) and ensuring justice is done falls to Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin. The four characters offer different playstyles and abilities, including the ability to teleport.

You can also play Gotham Knights in cooperative mode, which allows you to meet friends, in addition to the single player mode. Swapping characters in the game will require a visit to the Belfry, which serves as your headquarters.

The game allows teleportation via the Justice League satellite, as well as free traversal of the city on your Batcycle. Gotham Knights will feature mysteries to solve and notorious villains to defeat, according to publisher Warner Bros. Interactive.

New Tales from the Borderlands

When: October 21
Where: PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series S/X, Xbox One

A spiritual successor to Telltale’s narrative play, New Tales from the Borderlands follows a trio of losers – scientist Anu, her greedy brother Octavius, and frozen yogurt shop owner Fran, who is tied to a hoverchair. Together, the group embarks on a genre-bending adventure, as they rebel against Tediore’s oppressive invasion.

Identical to the original, the story will be split into five chapters, with a choice-based dialogue system that affects direction – to some degree. Fans can expect memorable vault hunters, psychopaths, a corrupt CEO, and an assassin robot to keep you company until the end.

Switching to Unreal Engine provides a solid visual boost, making its dated point-and-click mechanic slightly more bearable. The official list also includes an “Adventure Captical Pack”, consisting of in-game cosmetics, 10,000 in-game currency, and an FL4K Vaultlander collectible. Inclusion is a far cry from Telltale Games, which has focused on providing a great storytelling experience for a one-time payment. No separate editions or microtransactions.

When: October 21
Where: PC, PS5, Switch, Xbox Series S/X, Xbox One

An upgraded version of Persona 5, the upcoming Persona 5 Royal is expected to bring new elements to the popular RPG for current-gen consoles.

You must take classes as a regular student and participate in extracurricular activities, while moonlighting as a phantom thief, targeting corrupt adults in order to change them.

Persona 5 Royal will also feature a Metaverse Browser, which will allow players to climb walls and jump over obstacles in order to conquer palaces and steal in-game treasure. Atlus has also made all of Royal’s DLC accessible for free, on PC, PS5, Switch, Xbox Series S/X and Xbox One, while the game will include French, German, Italian and Spanish subtitles for the first time in the series.
