It’s another potentially expensive week for new releases, being quite possibly the biggest week of the year.

It’s the turn of Battlefield 2042 to gain early access bestowing editions, via the £110 Ultimate Edition and the £89.99 Gold Edition. 64 player battles and ever-changing battlefields – you know the drill by now. Battlefield Portal should be a highlight, featuring maps from past games.

After debuting in a deluxe package, the standard version of Forza Horizon 5 – available on Game Pass – arrives 9th November. SEGA’s time-consuming Football Manager 2022 heads to Game Pass too, out 8th Nov.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition brings back the PS2 era classics with a new coat of paint while retaining the look of the originals. GTA V-style controls and targeting feature, along with improved lighting. It’s arriving at £54.99 – a little more than we expected. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will be available on Game Pass, and GTA III on PS Now, however.

It isn’t the only re-release due – Skyrim Anniversary Edition arrives in time for its 10th birthday (11/11/11 – remember?) including all previously released Creation Club content and next-gen improvements.

Then there’s Jurassic World Evolution 2, packing a story-driven campaign, new dinosaurs and more. It could be a surprise hit, this.

The Switch gets a big release, in the form of Atlus’ post-apocalyptic JRPG Shin Megami Tensei V. The Metacritic score stands at 87%, with only a small assortment of review scores lower than 8/10.

Nintendo fans are likely keeping an eye out for Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda, which includes The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II, and Link’s Awakening. A version of the Game & Watch classic Vermin starring Link is also present.

Sticking with retro, two unlikely re-releases are incoming – Gynoug, the often-forgotten Mega Drive shooter, and American Hero – a previously unreleased Atari Jaguar CD game that promised more interactivity than other FMV adventures of the era. Maybe not the boldest of claims, that.
