Following an incredibly impressive month of Xbox One game releases in September, Xbox One’s October release calendar is looking stacked yet again. It’s a good month to be a gamer, for sure, and you’d better hide your wallet before checking out the entire list of games coming next month.
Of course, the majority of Xbox One gamers will pick up Halo 5: Guardians, as it is one of the most anticipated Xbox One games for fall 2015, but there are other great video game releases on the horizon, too.
Here are the top 4 best upcoming Xbox One games in October 2015:
1. Rock Band 4
Release Date: October 6
October marks the long-awaited return of the Rock Band franchise with Rock Band 4, which will be the first game in the series to hit the Xbox One. The game will include over 60 new songs from rock’s biggest names and upcoming acts. The new game will bring new controllers along with it, including the wireless Fender Stratocaster guitar controller, wireless drum kit and a USB Mic. Rock Band 4 will be the perfect party game this holiday season.
2. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
Release Date: October 23
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will bring players to 1868 London with an all-new combat system and weapons, including a Cane Sword and the Assassin’s Gauntlet with a hidden blade and rope launcher. With new ways to get around in the game, you’ll find yourself roping and driving buggies like nobody’s business. The story will follow twins Jacob and Evie Frye as they navigate through organized crime during the Victorian era, fighting against the established order, controlled by the Templars. If you’re an Assassin’s Creed fan, you’re not going to want to miss it.
3. Halo 5: Guardians
Release Date: October 27
Halo 5: Guardians is on every Xbox One gamer’s must-play list this fall, and the majority of Xbox One owners will likely pick it up. Even though it won’t have couch co-op, players will still pick it up for the online multiplayer and to unravel the story of Master Chief vs. Spartan Locke.
4. WWE 2K16
Release Date: October 27
We’ve been wildly impressed with the incredible roster list so far, which includes 120 playable wrestlers at launch (and there will likely be more added via DLC in the future). The cover features Stone Cold Steve Austin, so you know the game is about opening up a can of whoop-ass! The game brings some new tweaks and additions, including a limit on reversals, no loading screens between entrances, improvement to referee and manager AI, and a rework of pins and submissions. It looks like 2kSports might have listened to its fans, for once. Also, if you pre-order it, you’ll be able to play as the Terminator. So, there’s that.
