While September saw some big games released for the PS4, October looks even bigger with The Outer Worlds, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and more coming.

I’m not even through Monster Hunter World: Iceborne or Borderlands 3 and already we’re looking ahead to October where even more must-play blockbusters are set to release. Like we did for the Xbox One, we’ve compiled a list of some of the biggest games coming to PS4 next month. Keep in mind, this list isn’t every single PlayStation 4 releasing in October, just some of the bigger titles and exclusives.

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep – October 1

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is the fourth expansion for Destiny 2, but the first since Bungie officially acquired publishing rights for the franchise from Activision earlier this year. Because of this, there are high hopes that Shadowkeep can deliver on everything fans have hoped for with the franchise.

Players will return to the Moon, but it will be much expanded since we last saw it in the original Destiny. We can expect new PvE activities, more Crucible maps, new gear and weapons, and a new raid, as well as gameplay improvements such as a revamped armor system. Personally, I’m waiting for the inevitable Destiny 3, but Shadowkeep is presumably our first look at Bungie’s vision for the future of the franchise.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint – October 4

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is an open-world, tactical shooter and a narrative sequel to Ghost Recon Wildlands. The game is set on the fictional island of Auroa, which is supposedly larger than the world of Wildlands, where players are sent to investigate Skell Technology, a military contractor.

Concrete Genie – October 6

Get ready for a fantastical journey filled with color and imagination. Concrete Genie is a PlayStation 4 exclusive from developer PixelOpus. An intriguing premise, the game revolves around a young boy named Ash who attempts to paint his hometown back to life, but there’s way more depth and mechanics to the gameplay, which also involves Ash bringing to life his creations to fend off bullies. In an industry fueled by shooters, this one looks like something different and interesting.

MediEvil – October 25

A remake of the classic ’90s PlayStation title, MediEvil is a fantasy action-adventure, hack-and-slash. While the original has been re-released on previous PlayStation platforms, this is a complete remake from the ground up. The original MediEvil received middle of the road scores, praised for its humor and visuals, but criticized for its simplistic and sometimes clunky gameplay and camera. Hopefully, the remake fixes those issues.

The Outer Worlds – October 25

I don’t know if there’s a game more highly anticipated this year than The Outer Worlds. A sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment (Fallout: New Vegas, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II). The Outer Worlds is the quintessential RPG, featuring dialogue decisions which can impact the game’s branching story, unique approaches to quests, in-depth character customization and more. Beyond gameplay, the game’s story seems to offer humor and commentary on corporatization.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – October 25

Infinity Ward is returning Call of Duty to its roots with a soft reboot of the Modern Warfare sub-series, complete with a single-player campaign and a multiplayer suite featuring all the bells and whistles you’d expect from the franchise (including cross-platform multiplayer support).

Disgaea 4 Complete+ – October 29

Disgaea 4, a tactical role-playing game, was first released for PS3 in 2011. It was then brought to the PlayStation Vita in 2014. Now, it’s getting a second release for PlayStation 4 (and Nintendo Switch) under the title Disgaea 4 Complete+, and it will feature all of the additional scenarios, characters and DLC ever released for it plus some gameplay improvements.

Harvest Moon: Mad Dash – October 29

As the title suggests, Harvest Moon: Mad Dash is a frenzied version of the beloved Harvest Moon franchise. It takes the concept of Harvest Moon and turns the farming into fast-paced mini-games.

Yakuza 4 – October 29

Yakuza 4 is the next release in The Yakuza Remastered Collection for PS4. The original game received mostly positive reviews when it first released in 2011. The remaster will improve upon it with upgraded graphics to 1080p and 60 frames per second, as well as new content never previously released in the west.

Next. Yakuza 7 and five other amazing RPGs that take place in modern-day. dark
