New Video Game Releases for the Week of 10-8-17

Middle-earth: Shadow of War and The Evil Within 2 stand out from the crowd this week, but there are a couple gems to keep an eye on between Tuesday and Friday. Rocket League: Fast & Furious drops this Wednesday, bringing Brian O’Conner’s 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34, wheels, decals, and more from 2 Fast 2 Furious to a garage near you. Ready your boosts, ladies and gents.

But wait! There’s…a little more, at least.

The Switch is treated quite kindly with new video games this week as its game library gains The Flame in the Flood, a survival game with a light heart, a dark mood, and a captivating original soundtrack by Chuck Ragan. Wulverblade looks like a fun little beat’em up; and, while Yono and the Celestial Elephants looks somewhat childish, its simplicity has already swooned my gamer heart. Switch owners also get treated with 88 Heroes: 98 Heroes Edition, which, as you can tell by the name, comes with the perk of an extra ten playable characters.

Otherwise, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners should look to King of Fighters XIV (Special Anniversary Edition) on Tuesday and WWE 2K18 on Friday if none of the above are sporty enough for you. Friday the 13th: The Game comes out on…well, Friday, the 13th, alongside The Evil Within 2. Friday the 13th‘s multiplayer released earlier this year in May, but now killers and campers alike will be able to jump into the game’s campaign mode towards the end of the week.

As always, everything is for PC unless stated otherwise, and the bold titles are the games that have piqued my interest.
