Itâ€™s another potentially expensive week for new releases, being quite possibly the biggest week of the year. ÐºÐ°Ðº Ð²Ñ‹Ð³Ð¾Ð´Ð½Ð¾ Ð²Ð·ÑÑ‚ÑŒ Ð°Ð²Ñ‚Ð¾ÐºÑ€ÐµÐ´Ð¸Ñ‚
Itâ€™s the turn of Battlefield 2042 to gain early access bestowing editions, via the Â£110 Ultimate Edition and the Â£89.99 Gold Edition. 64 player battles and ever-changing battlefields â€“ 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 â€“ available on Game Pass – arrives 9th November. SEGAâ€™s time-consuming Football Manager 2022 heads to Game Pass too, out 8th Nov.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy â€“ 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. Itâ€™s arriving at Â£54.99 â€“ a little more than we expected. Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasÂ will be available on Game Pass, and GTA III on PS Now, however.
It isnâ€™t the only re-release due – Skyrim Anniversary Edition arrives in time for its 10th birthday (11/11/11 â€“ remember?) including all previously released Creation Club content and next-gen improvements.
Then thereâ€™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 Atlusâ€™ 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 Linkâ€™s Awakening. A version of the Game & Watch classic Vermin starring Link is also present.
Sticking with retro, two unlikely re-releases are incoming â€“ Gynoug, the often-forgotten Mega Drive shooter, and American Hero â€“ 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.
