Xbox Tavern’s Ones to Watch for October 2022

Wondering what games are coming to Xbox this month? Worry not, we’ve compiled a list of the biggest and most interesting releases right here for you, complete with links to trailers (when available).

Oct 4th
Overwatch 2 – Blizzard

As far as needless sequels go, Overwatch 2 could rank high among them had it not been for a radical overhaul of gameplay as well as going Free to Play from day one. Entirely replacing the original title (which will be taken offline as this launches) will it prove to hold the huge fanbase that Blizzard have built up? Not long until we find out.

Oct 11th
No More Heroes III – XSEEDgames

Originally launching as a Switch exclusive, this long awaited third entry now comes to Xbox as well. Continuing the tale of uber-assassin Travis Touchdown, we’re hopeful the lewd humour and simple-yet-glorious combat holds up today.

Oct 14th
Dragonball: The Breakers – Bandai Namco

We can safely say we didn’t see this one coming. An asymmetrical multiplayer survival game set in the Dragonball universe, it sees regular townsfolk attempting the survive and escape or defeat the likes of Cell, Buu, and more in high-octane action. Being able to temporarily transform into series’ heroes such as Goku and Vegeta gives players a fighting chance, though the overpowered nature of the villains will still take some work to defeat. Consider us curious for this one.

Oct 18th
A Plague Tale: Requiem – Focus Entertainment

Some of the Tavern crew have just finished the first entry ahead of this release, and we sure are keen to see how the tale of Amicia and Hugo continues. With expanded gameplay and story, and even more impressive tech behind it, we’re hoping for something quite special indeed.

Oct 19th
The Last Hero of Nostalgia – Coatsink

Jamie got to play this earlier in the year and, despite not generally being a ‘Souls-like’ fan, came away looking forward to getting stuck into this release. The mix of fun yet challenging combat and some genuinely funny writing has us very keen to see how it fares come the end of the month.

Oct 28th
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II – Activision

The original MWII was a landmark in gaming – especially on Xbox 360 and online – and having already revisited the original Modern Warfare, Activision are back to reimagine the second game. No doubt the story will be expanded and improved again (and where you’ll find most of the team playing) but the online is no doubt set for a huge resurgence after the recent Open Beta. Already likely to be one the years highest grossing titles, can it also set it’s sights on peoples GOTY’s as well?
