Star Wars: Squadrons – PC, PS4, X1 – Oct 2
While EA’s use of the Star Wars license has long been criticized for its lack of finished products, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order may just be the push in the right direction. Star Wars: Squadrons puts players in the role of pilots for the various sides (Empire and Republic). With a story mode, multiplayer, and VR compatibility, Star Wars: Squadrons could continue to propel Star Wars video games in the right direction, which is much needed given the amount of material to work with.
FIFA 21 – PC, PS4, Switch, X1 – Oct 9
Due to the sport’s massive popularity around the globe, the FIFA series is consistently among the top selling video games each year. Because of that, FIFA 21 is one of the biggest releases of the month. In addition to the typical annual upgrades for sports games, FIFA 21 will be bringing with it a co-op mode for its Ultimate Team mode, improvements to the Manager Mode within the Career Mode, and the return of VOLTA.
Watch Dogs: Legion – PC, PS4, X1 – Oct 29
The sequel to Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2, Watch Dogs: Legion takes players across the pond to London. While the first two games put players in the role of distinct hackers Aiden and Marcus, Watch Dogs: Legion allows players to recruit and build up a team of hackers to their liking. While seemingly a way to avoid having to create and develop a character, this concept is growing on me, personally. Watch Dogs: Legion looks to have continued learning from the first two games, and we hope the lessons learned are put into place well.
