Gulp. Here it is, hands-down the biggest month of the year for game releases. In fact, they don't get much bigger than this full stop. Perhaps the most anticipated game on the planet arrives at the end of the month in the shape of Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar's first game in over five years.

Before then though there's a whole host of treats in store. Forza Horizon 4 has already been earning rave reviews, Assassin's Creed Odyssey is showing fantastic promise, and Call of Duty barges into the Battle Royale space with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout game mode. These games are just the tip of the iceberg though, with October 2018 becoming an absolutely wallet-shredding month in gaming, regardless of your chosen platform.
