With 2019’s Fall season fully underway, we can expect triple AAA titles across the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch, as well as the PC, to start releasing one by one sooner rather than later. 

 

To help keep track of what’s coming and when this October, we’ve taken the liberty of coming up with a list of all the best upcoming video games that will be released this October 2019. 

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep — October 1

 

Available on: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, Microsoft Windows 

 

Destiny 2’s fourth expansion will revolve around the Moon and is supposedly set to be just as big as the previous expansion, Forsaken. But, perhaps more important than the actual setting of the expansion is how its release also coincides with the game’s PC version going from being a Battle.net exclusive to being available on Steam. Along with this, cross-save support will be enabled between platforms while PlayStation 4-exclusive content will be disabled going forward. Plus, a “foundational” Destiny 2 release featuring the game’s first two expansion will also now be available as a free-to-play title under the name “New Light”. 

 

Put simply, Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is huge for Destiny 2, both in and out of the game. 

 

There hasn’t been a better time to jump back into Destiny 2 for older fans, and for newer fans to try it out. 

 

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint — October 4

 

Available on: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, Microsoft Windows 

 

An online military shooter that can be played either on your own solo, or with as many as three other friends, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint puts players in the shoes of Nomad, a special forces operative sent to the fictional island of Auroa in the Pacific Ocean. Your goal is to investigate Skell Tech, a military contractor who’s up to no good and has been linked to several shady happenings around the area. 

 

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is the latest in then long line of Tom Clancy games. This means that you can expect a lot more realism and challenge than your typical shooter. 

 

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair — October 8

 

Available on: Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch

 

Yooka-Laylee released to high expectations way back in 2017, thanks mostly to the hype surrounding the game being developed by the designers of the classic Nintendo 64 title Banjo-Kazooie. Unfortunately, the game just wasn’t good enough to spark audience’s interest in platformers once again. But, if it’s any consolation, it was good enough to warrant a sequel, which comes in the form of Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. 

 

Switching things up and abandoning 3D platforming in favour of a 2.D side-scrolling view, Yooka-Layle and the Impossible Lair is a must-play for platformer fans. 

 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare — October 25

 

Available on: Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

 

Following a series of releases where single-player campaigns took the backseat in favour of multiplayer, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will shift the focus back to the single-player story once again. 

 

Considered a “soft reboot” of the franchise, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will retell a story that’s all too familiar with fans. But, what’s different this time around is better technology for a more immersive experience. Not to mention, a heavier emphasis on trouble and realistic emotional moments that used to be what Call of Duty was all about. 

Luigi’s Mansion 3 — October 31

 

Available on: Nintendo Switch

 

Released just in time for Halloween, Nintendo’s family-friendly take on the horror genre returns featuring every little brother’s favourite plumber. 

 

In Luigi’s Mansion 3, Luigi and Peach are invited to stay for free at a luxury hotel. But, all are not what they seem as they arrive, and it doesn’t take long for things to take a turn for the worse as Luigi finds out that his entire party has been trapped inside all of the paintings scattered all over the hotel. 

 

Explore the ghastly hotel, tackle ghosts, and solve puzzles in the third instalment of the Luigi’s Mansion series. 

 

With so many games coming this October and the months after it, keeping track can be difficult. Thankfully, you have this list to help you know which ones taking note of are releasing this October, and when.
