PC gamers are rarely left wanting for new games, although it is easy to lose track of what is coming out due to the sheer volume of releases. September had a few disappointments, like "Destiny 2" being released on consoles but not PC, so let us see if October holds anything special.

The Bungie title is going to be released for PC on October 24th, so we will not be included in this list to allow space for a lesser known title.

'Spelunker Party!'

Just announced a few minutes ago, Square Enix is bringing "Spelunker Party!" to the west. Offering a single and multiplayer experience, players have over 100 stages to play through.

It will only be available for PC and the Nintendo Switch, so it is somewhat of a surprise. The price is set to be $29.99, which is not too bad considering how much content is included. Fans of the original "Spelunker" should definitely give this a look. It will be available to purchase from October 19th.

'Assassin's Creed Origins'

No list would be complete without mentioning "Assassin's Creed Origins," the newest entry [VIDEO] in Ubisoft's long-running franchise. Due to the broken launch state of "Assassin's Creed Unity," the series lost some of its mass-appeal, with "Syndicate" selling considerably worse than its predecessor.

"Origins" needs to be great, or the future of the franchise might be in jeopardy. The previews have pointed in the right direction, with the combat being touched up and a fantastic new setting in Ancient Egypt.

While the overarching plot of the series has gotten quite muddled, the decision to focus on the period when the assassin's organization was created could greatly benefit the story. Most importantly, "Assassin's Creed Origins" has to work well. As Ubisoft took their time with this one; hopefully, it pays off with a polished final product.

'The Evil Within 2'

With "Resident Evil 7," it is shaping up to be a good year for horror games. In October, things might get even better with the release of "#The Evil Within 2." Developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda Softworks, the upcoming third-person survival horror [VIDEO] game is a follow-up to the original released in 2014.

While the first game had its flaws, it still garnered a positive reception and served as a solid basis to launch a series. The sequel brings back the characters while improving the gameplay. Players can now decide whether to use tank controls or a more fluid control scheme, while the levels are considerably more open-ended. "The Evil Within 2" is set to be released on October 13th. #Assassin Creed #October 2017
