We’re not known for predicting the future, but its safe to say our wallets will be empty come the end of October. That’s if you’re a PlayStation 4 users, with a plethora of top games releasing over the coming month.

It’s severely packed and we don’t know how we’re going to get the time to play the array of titles on offer. One thing we can do is show you what to expect, so check out some of the big games releasing in the month of October below.

Battlefield 1

Electronic Arts and DICE are back once again with another installment of the popular shooter franchise. Big changes will come with Battlefield 1, as the developer strips back everything modern for the perils of the Great War. We’ll be treated to a historically accurate single-player experience that includes many key battles from World War 1 and the journey of several characters, including the iconic Lawrence of Arabia.

Multiplayer is still the bread and butter of the shooter and has completely invested itself in the early 1900’s, with weapons, map design, vehicles, and much more all from that time. The shooter will once again go head-to-head with Call of Duty, and this time might give Activision’s shooter a good lashing.

  • Release Date – October 21st
  • Platform(s) – PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

Rise of the Tomb Raider

While the game has already seen its release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 users are late to the party but at the party nonetheless. The newest entry in the series follows Lara Croft once again as she jet-sets around the world in search of treasures.

Square Enix have fully supported the game outside the traditional play-style. Those who invest in a PlayStation VR or PlayStation 4 Pro can enjoy the adventure even more.

PlayStation VR

The highlight of the month no doubt, PlayStation VR finally makes its arrival on the market – on my birthday no less – and promises a unique and immersive way to enjoy what the PlayStation 4 has to offer.

The hardware will come with some launch titles which include Batman: Arkham VR, VR Worlds, and much more. There’s plenty of new titles expected to release in the coming months and throughout next year, so anytime is a good time to jump on the VR train.

Titanfall 2

Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment are finally bringing the Titanfall franchise to PlayStation 4. Titanfall 2 will be available for the console at the back-end of this month and build on all the fast-paced action its predecessor offered on Xbox and PC.

Unlike the original Titanfall, gamers can expect a fully-fledged single-player campaign alongside its exciting multiplayer offering. Improvments to Mechs – giant robot friends – has also been added, making their use on the Battlefield more rewarding.

If you’re thinking about giving Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare a miss this year then Titanfall 2 might be the shooter for you.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition

If your thinking about giving Fallot 4 a break but still want to experience something Bethesda-themed, then The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim might be the game for you.

We’ve played the game on the PlayStation 3 enough to question out gaming habits but wouldn’t hesitate to come back to Tamriel for another bout of troll hunting. The majestic story you’ve played through will feature once again, along wth improved visuals and all downloadable content already released for the game.
