We’ve rounded up all of the biggest October 2020 game releases for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time (PS4, Xbox One, PC) — October 2
After the massive success of the Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy in 2017, it only made sense that Activision would commit to a full-blown Crash sequel. Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time aims to pick up where the golden age of the orange marsupial left off with developer Toys for Bob gleefully approaching it with tongue-in-cheek humour that looks to expand on the series’ enjoyable, chaotic platforming mechanics.
Star Wars Squadrons (PS4, Xbox One, PC) — October 2
If you’re big on the Star Wars dogfighting PC games of yore, then Star Wars Squadrons could be your ticket into a world of nostalgia — though anyone with a love for the ship-to-ship combat seen in the films is going to get a kick out of this upcoming space combat simulator. EA is undoubtedly putting in the work to make Squadrons an authentic Star Wars dogfighting experience, including single-player campaigns for both the New Republic and Galactic Empire, competitive multiplayer modes, and even VR support.
Watch Dogs: Legion (PS4, Xbox One, PC) — October 29
Watch Dogs: Legion is the latest game in Ubisoft’s hacker-centric open-world franchise. It’s set in London, and you’re once again a part of DedSec — a secret hacker organisation that is seeking to liberate London from political and corporate corruption. You’re in control of multiple protagonists, who you recruit as you play the game, but one of the most interesting elements of it all is that you can enlist literally anyone in the game’s world into your resistance.
