This week is going to be perhaps the biggest this year for gaming releases. The main reason for that is October 27, the day when three hugely anticipated games are releasing all at once, and all of them are vying for your attention. Add on top of that the fact that those on PC are finally getting their hands on Destiny 2, and there's a strong chance you'll have a pretty packed weekend. Here's everything, with a quick rundown of what those games are like.
Destiny 2 - October 24, PC
Those playing on PS4 and Xbox One have had Destiny 2 for about a month now, with lots of player finishing a large portion of the game's content up already, but the PC release is only coming this week. Extra time had to be spent making sure it had a good quality port, but it's finally here for those on PC. Given ow fantastic the original game was, we're pretty excited to see how the PC gaming community take to one of the most popular games of this year.
For a bit of extra reading, we interviewed David Shaw, PC project lead at Bungie, and Thomas Gawrys, lead engineer at Vicarious Visions about Destiny 2's PC port, asking all about hacking, esports, and whether the Destiny 1 story will ever come to PC.

Hidden Agenda - October 24, PS4
Definitely overshadowed by the release of other huge titles this week, Hidden Agenda may well be one of those games that slips under your radar. Developed by Supermassive Games, the team behind the phenomenal Until Dawn, it's a sort of party game where players decide on outcomes to the story, such as whether you'll want to save a hostage or a fellow cop in what might be a life-or-death situation.
Each player then has their own objectives on top of that, which are hidden from other players. Given Supermassive Games have already proved themselves to be brilliant at the cinematic game experience, this may well be a great party game for any end-of-year parties you're hosting.
Assassin's Creed Origins - October 27, PS4, Xbox One, PC
The first of the big three on October 27 is Assassin's Creed Origins, the latest in the Assassin's Creed franchise and the first in its somewhat confusing chronology. Putting you in the shoes of Bayek, a warrior for the pharaoh, you'll work to assassinate and undermine The Order of the Ancients, and establish the Brotherhood of Assassins.
We've already managed to preview the game, and it's a pretty new experience compared to previous Assassin's Creed games. The pacing and gameplay are much more like modern RPGs than the 'stab and run' action of previous Assassin's Creed games, with a focus on levels, crafting, and open world quests. Perhaps not the Assassin's Creed you remember, whether that's a good thing or a bad thing.

Super Mario Odyssey - October 27, Nintendo Switch
Mario has a brand new 3D adventure for a Nintendo console: Super Mario Odyssey. It's Mario's first game on the Nintendo Switch, and as already received one rave review from Edge Magazine, giving it a 10/10. This time, the evil Bowser has decided to steal Princess Peach to marry her, and Mario must travel from world to world on The Odyssey, a flying ship, with a new friend.
That new friend is Cappy, a sentient hat that replaces his signature red cap, giving Mario new abilities. With it, he can capture enemies, effectively possessing them to control enemies and find new ways around levels. Like Super Mario Galaxy, the previous Mario game to make a leap between console generations, it seems to be changing the way a Mario platformer works, and we're excited to see it for ourselves.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus - October 27, PS4, Xbox One, PC
As the sequel to Machine Games' 2014 revamp to the Wolfenstein series, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus looks to be more of the same, but ramped up. It's now taking place in the US, in an alternate history where the Allies lost World War 2, with Nazi occupying forces running pretty much the entire world. As B.J. Blazkowicz, you'll get to fight off hundreds of Nazis with over the top and brutal weapons, and try to defeat that Nazi force.
