Sonic Frontiers - 8th November
On the 8th November, Sega's famous blue blur speeds off in a new direction in Sonic Frontiers.
Promising "high-velocity, open-zone platforming freedom," Frontiers sees Sonic stranded on an ancient island with five islands to explore and powerful enemies to defeat. Early reaction to the game was lukewarm to say the least, but recent hands-on impressions have been significantly more positive, suggesting that this could well be worth checking out after all.
God of War Ragnarok - 9th November
God of War Ragnarok is now so close we can almost swing our hugely satisfying axe at it, and boy are we excited.
Sequel to 2018's stunning God of War, Ragnarok continues Kratos and Atreus' journey as they travel to each of the Nine Realms, hoping to find answers as Asgardian forces prepare for a prophesied battle that will end the world. Expect stunning landscapes, epic fights and more fantastic storytelling when this one drops on 9th November. More pre-order options are available here.
Marvel's Midnight Suns - 2nd December
Kicking off a packed 2nd December this year we have Marvel's Midnight Suns, a new tactical RPG that's set in the darker side of the Marvel Universe. You'll be teaming up with Midnight Suns – Ghost Rider, Magik, Blade and Nico Minoru – as you battle against demonic forces of the underworld to stop Lilith, Mother of Demons from resurrecting her master Chthon.

Need For Speed Unbound - 2nd December
Next up and also launching on 2nd December is Need for Speed Unbound, the latest entry in Criterion's racing franchise.
Promising "hours of electric, adrenaline-pumping racing action," Unbound will boast separate single-player and multiplayer campaigns, weekly qualifiers, custom riders that can be precision-tuned, and a fresh soundtrack. You'll be starting at the bottom and racing the top in this latest Need for Speed, and we can't wait to check it out when it arrives on 2nd December.
The Callisto Protocol - 2nd December
Did we mention that 2nd December was busy? Blimey.
The Callisto Protocol is a narrative-driven, third-person survival horror set 300 years in the future, where players take on the role of Jacob Lee – a victim of fate thrown into Black Iron Prison, a maximum-security penitentiary located on Jupiter's moon, Callisto. We're told to expect a "unique blend of shooting and close-quarters combat" in this one... We'll let the PR set the scene:
When inmates begin to transform into monstrous creatures, the prison is thrown into chaos. To survive, Jacob must battle his way to safety to escape Black Iron Prison, while uncovering the dark and disturbing secrets buried beneath the surface of Callisto.
