October promises to be an exciting month for PC gamers since some exciting games have been slated for release. Check them all out below.
Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth
Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth will propel the development of human civilisation beyond the traditional timeline of a Civilisation game, by exploring humanity's future on an alien world.
For the first time, players will lead factions divided by contrasting cultures and evolve their new civilisations to reflect their chosen destiny. Players will experience an array of new gameplay possibilities, including nonlinear technological progression, deeper customisation of chosen factions, and an entire alien world that will change the very identity of each faction based on their choices.
Ryse: Son of Rome
Ryse: Son of Rome involves players in a cinematic re-creation of the Roman Empire, its people, conflicts and landscapes in breathtaking detail. Talking about the game's graphical prowess, it represents the graphical benchmark for the next console generation. The game has been lauded for bringing the brutality and intensity of Roman warfare to life with an astounding amount of detail, thrusting players into the chaos of close-quarter combats.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel launches players to Pandora's moon to experience wild, gravity-bending gunfights in zero-atmosphere environments using an array of all-new weaponry. For the very first time, fans play on the other side as four new playable characters contributing to the rise of the Hyperion Corporation. Fighting alongside Handsome Jack, players witness his transformation into the megalomaniacal tyrant that fans loved to hate in Borderlands 2.
If you're looking for a free-to-play online FPS that's packed with terror, then consider this title. The game features three play modes. The most exciting of the lot happens to be Scenario Mode, in which four players can team up for co-op action in a tension-filled story of oriental occult and horror. The F.E.A.R. Mode, which is only available in F.E.A.R. Origin Online, brings back the gameplay of past games, while the Original Mode offers 'Team Death Match' and 'Search & Destroy' missions to immerse players in the F.E.A.R. experience with realistic guns and other rich game play elements.
Styx: Master of Shadows
Styx is a Goblin two centuries old. The very first of all the Goblins, he's a master in the arts of stealth, theft, and murder. The depths of the miles-high Tower of Akenash, where Humans and Elves hide and protect the Tree, the source of the Amber, is the best chance Styx has of quickly amassing a small fortune and, perhaps, discovering more about his true origins along the way.
Battle your way to the top of the lofty Tower of Akenash through immense and vertiginous levels that highlight the vertical perspective. You will complete numerous missions with various objectives as you climb up - murder, information recovery, theft of precious artifacts, etc - and gradually reconstruct the puzzle that provides the keys to the mystery of your origins.
The levels are open and the objectives can be completed in various ways: you are therefore free to choose the best way to proceed and the most suitable strategy to employ to achieve and complete your mission objectives. But remember you're a Goblin: if your target is twice your size, or more, you're better off eliminating them silently and in the back!
