October is here, and it looks to be a big one for gaming as some massive releases are happening this month. Following from a pretty big month of gaming in September, 2021 isn’t yet ready to start slowing down on new releases. So here’s our list of the biggest games coming out in October 2021…

There’s no doubt that the biggest release of the month will be Far Cry 6, the highly anticipated sequel from Ubisoft. But there’s also Age of Empires 4 and Back 4 Blood which are likely runners up. Then there’s Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Alan Wake Remastered, Crysis Remastered Trilogy, Riders Republic, and The Dark Pictures: House of Ashes.

--------------

Alan Wake Remastered - October 5th / PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S

Far Cry 6 - October 7th / PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Stadia

Back 4 Blood - October 12th / PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S

Crysis Remastered Trilogy - October 15th / PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch

The Dark Pictures: House of Ashes - October 22nd / PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy - October 26th / PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch

Age of Empires 4 - October 28th / PC

Riders Republic - October 28th / PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Stadia

--------------

Just like last time, there’s a lot of games coming out this month both big and small, and unfortunately not all of them could make the list of the biggest games of the month. So here’s a few honorable mentions that are either not big enough releases in our opinion or are simply not available on PC at launch:

--------------

If you’re planning on picking up any of these games then you can vote for them in the poll below. Unfortunately we still can’t do multiple votes just yet, so just pick which one you’re most excited for and then let us know of any others in the discussion area below! And of course, let us know if we missed any other big games coming out this month!

Which game are you most excited to get this month?

Got FC 6 for free with my Ryzen 5900x promotion last year, so will definitely check it out.

FarCry6 is the one I'm interested in, but it'd be hard to justify buying day1 and/or without a discount, dunno...

I too am interested in FC 6 but I am wary of performance at launch. Usually the Dunia Engine runs and scales very well but I am playing WD Legion right now which uses the same engine and it runs really bad.


I am playing on High 1080p with the -dx11 -BattleEye command line argument and I get 45 FPS which is decent enough but the micro-stuttering is insane! I keep checking the FPS counter to see if I dropped into the 20s but no. Their DRM layering is insane with Denuvo and VM Protect not to mention Uplay skipping and hopping along the way as well.

What do you mean, "meh"? It's a low-budget, Nick-themed Smash clone made by former competitive Smash players! What more do you want?
