Get ready for the biggest video game drop of the year, people. October is upon us — and it is going to be out of this world, with more triple-A releases coming to all corners of the market than any other month to date. Of course, that’s fantastic news for us as gamers, though pretty depressing for our wallets, which are more than likely sobbing in anticipation of our inevitable shopping sprees.
Booting off the month on Friday is EA’s next heavy instalment to the iconic football franchise, FIFA 22. From there, we’ve got the likes of Far Cry 6, Back 4 Blood, Riders Republic and a whole heap of others. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. A very, very lavish iceberg with diamond-encrusted leaves. The rest you’ll have to see for yourself. So, without further ado, here are the games launching this October.
