October 2017 PS4 VIDEO GAME RELEASES
(WEEKS ONE & TWO: Oct. 1-14)
As September comes to a close after bringing a number of big-hitters to the PS4, fans will be eagerly anticipating what’s to come in October 2017. Alongside a number of smaller titles, October brings its fair share of PS4 exclusives and major third-party releases.
Though the opening week of October might not bring a ton of major releases, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen finally hits the PS4, allowing those who missed out on this excellent RPG the first time around the chance to experience it in all its remastered glory. The main titles of October’s opening two weeks, however, come in the form of Middle-earth: Shadow of War, and Tango Softworks’ The Evil Within 2.
Shadow of War sees players returning to Middle-earth as Talion seeks to take control of the dangerous lands of Mordor. With an overhaul of the nemesis system seeing your foes betray and conspire against one another, as well as the ability to build and lead your very own orc army into battle, the game’s shaping up to be a real action blockbuster.
The Evil Within 2 slows things down a bit, swapping all-out action for spooks and scares, instead. Players will assume control of Sebastian once more as he plunges into a nightmarish world in an attempt to save his family from the evil that lies within. This time around, players will have the option to either take on the creepy enemies guns blazing or take the stealthy, non-lethal option. It’s conveniently releasing on Friday the 13th, too, so there’s that!
