With 2017 slowly coming to a close, people would be forgiven if they were to start focusing on the upcoming year. Despite most of this year's big games, like "Destiny 2" and "Horizon Zero Dawn" already being released; there are a handful of exciting titles still coming to the PlayStation 4.

For this article, let us take a quick look at the games scheduled to be released in October and see which are the cream of the crop -- the ones worth our money.

'Assassin's Creed Origins'

For a time, we started to believe it would be impossible to ever get excited over another "Assassin's Creed." Ubisoft had truly milked it dry, with some of the latest entries suffering from bugs and a lack of creativity.

Set in Ancient Egypt, players control the Medjay Bayek and, as the title suggests, it is an origin story for the Assassin's organization. The slightly different setting than usual peaked our interest, but the combat really looks like an improvement. Previews suggest a heavier focus on action and player control, so it is not quite as easy to win a fight as the previous games. Hopefully, "Assassin's Creed Origins" brings the franchise roaring back to the pinnacle of the open-world genre.

'Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus'

The follow-up to 2014's "The New Order," "Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus" is a welcome return to MachineGames' World War II first-person-shooter. Set in an alternate timeline where the allies lost the war, the title takes place in a Nazi Occupied America.

Once again, players control B.J, who joins the resistance as they try to instigate a new revolution. If it is anything like its predecessor, "Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus" is bound to be a blast.

'The Evil Within 2'

While the previous two entries are a safer bet, "The Evil Within 2" is following up a promising but flawed first game which received mixed reviews.

Although one of the better survival horror titles of the last few years, there definitely is room for improvement.

Taking place a few years after the events of the first game, Sebastian returns as the protagonist, so it is a direct sequel. This time, he is investigating the city of Union and the death of his daughter Lily. From the gameplay previous and trailers, "The Evil Within 2" is more open-ended than its linear predecessor. Players are given the freedom to explore the city and there is an alternative control scheme which dumps the classic tank-like controls seen in the first.
