Xbox Tavern’s Ones to Watch for October 2020

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).

October 9th
The Survivalists

Fans of Team17’s The Escapists titles are set to find a new challenge here; instead of breaking out of a prison, players must survive on a tropical island, foraging for food and items to use to their advantage. Tavern member Ian was quite the fan of the last few titles, so it’ll be interesting to see what he thinks of this spin on the formula.

October 13th
Remothered: Broken Porcelain

The follow up to Remothered: Tormented Fathers, Broken Porcelain looks to continue the creepy horror atmosphere and disturbing themes found there. Horror fans have been somewhat spoiled lately, so it certainly has a high bar to try and reach. Check out DJ’s recent preview of the game here.

October 15th
Cloudpunk

There’s no better time to drop a cyberpunk-styled game than right now, and Cloudpunk immediately grabs the attention thanks to its voxel-based, stylish visuals. It garnered some good reviews earlier in the year for its PC release, so here’s hoping the transition to Xbox goes smoothly.

October 21st
ScourgeBringer

Coming the GamePass day one, this stylish looking rogue-like might even get Tavern owner Jamie on board with the genre! With face-paced action, fluid combat and no doubt plenty to explore and find, this could be a surprise hit for the month.

October 19th
Watchdogs: Legion

Looking impossibly open ended, Watchdogs: Legion immediately hit the sceptical area of the brain. However, some positive previews seemed to back up the hype, and now we’re just a few short weeks away from seeing for ourselves. Being able to build your own army of characters from anyone in the game world, each with their own unique traits and stories seems like a big ask, but if Ubisoft can pull it off it may just end up in contention among the GOTY candidates.
