Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, WWE 2K20, and other October 2019 releases

Here's a full list of games we're looking forward to this month

Games of October 2019So many games, so little time. While last month had a massive release in FIFA 20, that will keep a chunk of our gaming population occupied for a while, for many others October is the month that they’ll be getting a new Call of Duty game. But the lead up and follow up to COD is lined with some pretty amazing releases, which are frankly quite brilliant in their own unique ways… or at least so it seems at this point. Here’s a healthy list of games across various platforms that we’re looking forward to this October.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

With so many open betas, you pretty much have an idea of how the game will play out. But nothing has prepared you for the single player campaign that will be a part of the final release. Watch the trailer to get a taste.

Grid

The franchise that first introduced the concept of ‘rewind’ in racing games, is now showcasing a new ‘Nemesis’ system that makes AI drivers more aggressive against you if you hit them too hard. To add to that there are 400 unique AI race drivers in the game. This should be interesting.

Release date: October 15
Platforms: Switch
Price: ₹4,299

Overwatch — Legendary Edition

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

Yooka-Laylee changes perspective to 2.5D platforming, and from what we’ve seen, it looks like a change for the better. Made by a team that has some of the talent behind Donkey Kong Country, the new game looks incredibly colourful and whacky.

Price: ₹629 on PC, ₹2,499 on PS4 and Xbox One, $29.99 on Switch

Little Town Hero

From the makers of Pokemon comes a new RPG, that seems like a page out of a fairy tale book. Little Town Hero looks like a simplistic RPG but with a boatload of charm, which is the same formula that made Pokemon the series it is today. Will this be received just as well?

Release date: October 17
Platforms: Switch
Price: $24.99
