Muscular men! Muscular women! Tight clothing! Sweat! Awful acting! Faux violence! The 2K WWE games have all those things, which means that WWE 2K19 will be a must-have for wrestling fans even if it’s nothing special.

8 The World Ends With You

The World Ends With You – Final Remix

Release date: 12th October
Formats: Switch

If you’ve never played the Nintendo DS version of The World Ends With You, don’t pass up you chance to experience it on Switch. It’s a bloody good game that’s rather unique.

9 Black Ops 4

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

Release date: 12th October
Formats: PS4, Xbox One and PC

Buy on Amazon

Honestly, our excitement for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is rather low due to it not having a single player campaign, but we hear its multiplayer offerings are rather good. We guess many players will be happy with that.

10 Starlink

Starlink: Battle for Atlas

Release date: 16th October
Formats: PS4, Xbox One and Switch

Buy on Amazon

Ubisoft is bold releasing a new toys-to-life video game in 2018. Really, if Disney and LEGO can’t make it work, who can? Still, Starlink: Battle for Atlas has us intrigued.

11 LEGO DC Super Villains

LEGO DC Super Villains

Release date: US – 16th October, Europe – 19th October
Formats: PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC

Buy on Amazon

It’s a LEGO game, but this time you play as the villains. We played a little of it at EGX, and it sure did seem like a LEGO game. Make of that what you will.

We like feeling like hard bastards, and that’s what the Warriors games are best at. Warriors Orochi 4 is set to feature one of the largest rosters of characters yet, and we can’t wait to decimate thousands upon thousands of demons with them.

Dark Souls: Remastered finally lands on Switch this month after being delayed. If you want to die, die and then die again while on the move, you’re going to want to pick this up.

14

Soulcalibur VI

Release date: 19th October
Formats: PS4, Xbox One and PC

Buy on Amazon

Soulcalibur returns, and from what we’ve played it’s likely to be a hit. It looks nice, plays well, and it set to have a decent amount of content. Yeah, we’re looking forward to Soulcalibur VI.

15 Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2

Release date: 26th October
Formats: PS4 and Xbox One

Do we really need to say anything about Red Dead Redemption 2? This is probably going to be the biggest hit of the year. Hopefully it’ll live up to the hype.

16 My Hero One's Justice

My Hero One’s Justice

Release date: 26th October
Formats: PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC

Buy on Amazon

If you like your fighting games a little more unorthodox, you should keep an eye on My Hero One’s Justice. It felt a little floaty when we played it at EGX, but every fight sure was a spectacle. Also, its characters are brilliant.

17 Call of Cthulhu

Call of Cthulhu

Release date: 30th October
Formats: PS4, Xbox One and PC

Buy on Amazon

What better way to enjoy Halloween than with a good horror game? Call of Cthulhu looks set to offer a dark adventure that will test your brain just as much as your nerve. We like that.
