This past week has been huge for new game releases so you should not be stuck trying to find something to play this weekend. But aside from the big three releases, there are Halloween updates to the most popular games out there right now, and one mod makes a terrifying horror game even scarier. Get in the mood for the spooky season!
Win a copy of delightful adventure game The Inner World – we have 50 Steam keys!
If you haven’t played the first Inner World game then don’t worry. This sequel has its own separate story going on and it still looks as delightful with its hand-drawn art. And trust us, if you don’t know about flute noses, you’re about to be delighted.
We were expecting big Nazi-punching action from Wolfenstein II and, oh boy, does it deliver. This is one of the best games to come out this year. Hands down. But it’s not the big, bulky shooting that pushes it to greatness – it’s everything else around it.
Finally, after months of waiting, Destiny 2 is now available on PC. And it’s pretty good, folks. This is definitely the best way to play Destiny – you can tell your friends who teased you about playing it early on consoles that they’re missing out.
Ubisoft took a hiatus from the yearly release schedule for the Assassin’s Creed series and it’s paid off. Not only is the PC port of Origins fantastic, the game is huge, beautiful, and is a properly great RPG with hours and hours of action to experience.

Fortnite is one of the big games getting into the spooky spirit with its big Halloween update. Called Fortnightmares (yes, really), it adds new character and weapon skins, season levels, and leaderboards for the Battle Royale mode.
People are still playing Mirror’s Edge. Why? They’re breaking speedrunning records, that’s why. The cool thing is that the latest world record was set by a team of the best runners of the game. They think the run they collectively pulled off can’t be beaten. Fancy challenging them?
The Evil Within 2 is certified scary. We’ve had a bunch of our writers play it and can say that, yes, there was screaming involved. But it can be scarier. How? Trade the third-person perspective for a first-person one, obviously.
Total War: Warhammer II is already an immensely good strategy game. But now it’s even better with the arrival of the Mortal Empires update this week. It brings together the campaign map of the first game and the sequel into one huge one. Impressive.
It’s the season for scary and spooky games so it makes sense for Junkenstein’s Revenge to return to Overwatch. While there aren’t any huge overhauls to the horde mode compared to last year, it’s still a decent way to play Overwatch, a break from the stress of competitive.
