It has been a big year for video game fans, with franchises like The Last of Us being turned into an HBO series and the release of Resident Evil 4, the remake of the 2005 survival horror game. The excitement isn’t over, as many new releases are coming in October and November. Today’s article will look at some highly anticipated video games that will be released in the next few months.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage
Assassin’s Creed Mirage will be the 13th major installment in the Assassin’s Creed series by Ubisoft. It will be released on October 5, 2023, and available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game is forecasted to focus less on open-world elements and more on storytelling, so you should consider switching up your gaming set-up to get the most out of this new game.
For example, suppose you have difficulties with your connectivity and bandwidth when gaming. This will stop you from effortlessly following this new game’s story set in 9th-century Baghdad, and in that case, you should consider downloading a VPN. Traditionally, using a VPN changes your IP address. This alteration allows you to explore the internet as if you were physically present in various countries such as the UK, U.S., Canada, Australia, or virtually any other country where the VPN service has servers available. But nowadays, VPN providers such as ExpressVPN offer apps compatible with popular gaming consoles such as PlayStation and Xbox. They can enhance your gaming experience by improving connectivity, minimizing bandwidth restrictions, and even allowing you to modify your virtual location. By connecting to a VPN server, you can potentially overcome any limitations imposed by your internet service provider and access gaming servers from various regions. This flexibility can benefit specific games or situations where accessing different server locations may be advantageous.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2
Another upcoming video game you will want to ensure you have a solid connection when playing is Insomniac Games’ new action-adventure game, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. The game will be released on October 20, 2023, for PlayStation 5, the third installment in Marvel’s Spider-Man series. Reports surrounding Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 have described how the game emphasizes its story and gameplay, allowing players to play the two main Spider-Man characters individually (Peter Parker and Miles Morales) as they explore New York and progress further into the game’s story.
The Day Before
Survival horror fans have been waiting for the release of The Day Before since 2022, and after two delays, the game is finally coming to Windows on November 10, 2023. The game is set in the United States in a post-apocalyptic world, and zombies have taken over the country.
However, according to Eurogamer, The Day Before may be getting a new name because of trademark issues; fans will want to watch for any updates as the November release date gets closer.
Persona 5 Tactica
Lastly, the tactical role-playing game Persona 5 Tactica will be coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox on November 17th, 2023. The game is a spin-off from the Persona series and has been in the works for a while, officially revealing itself at the Xbox Games Showcase in June 2023. In the game, players will control up to three characters who navigate a grid-based map full of enemy units, and they have to decide whether to fight or not if approached.
So many exciting video games are set for release in October and November, which means these can be the perfect gifts for gamers for Christmas. But, with many of these games focusing more on storytelling and character development, it’s worth considering your current gaming setup to see if you can do anything to make the gameplay more seamless.
