Clear Your Weekend Plans: 10/27 Game Releases

Video Game Releases: Friday, October 27th, 2017

This Friday has a lot in store for gamers. A host of new games will be hitting the market all at once! This may be a problem for wallets around the world, but for those eager to start a new adventure, it’s truly a treat. With such an incredible week of gaming, let’s take a look at the highly anticipated titles releasing just in time for the weekend.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins – PS4, Xbox One, PC

The Assassin’s Creed franchise is known for its inconsistency. One game will come out and blow audiences away and then the next game will be a complete blunder. Assassins Creed 2 and 3 come to mind or Black Flag and Unity. However, this time around, it looks like Ubisoft is heading in the right direction, finally allowing players to experience ancient Egypt. Players will be leaders of the Assassin’s Brotherhood, tasked with uncovering lost tombs and exploring the pyramids. Ubisoft took a different direction with this title, embracing a new RPG style which fits perfectly with the expansive open world.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus – PS4, Xbox One, PC

This franchise has been around for decades and gamers are ecstatic the eleventh installment is nearing release. It will be a sequel to the 2014 game, Wolfenstein: The New Order. Taking a lot of the gameplay style from The New Order but of course, the developers have a lot more to work with in terms of gaming technology. The environments and some elements of the core game will be entirely different. This will truly be a treat for any Wolfenstein fan but has also appealed to newcomers of the series as well. It’ll be interesting to see how this classic franchise fairs in this interesting new gaming market the world currently embracing.

Super Mario Odyssey  – Nintendo Switch

Hardcore Nintendo fans probably don’t need to read this brief description of Super Mario Odyssey. People have been shaking from anticipation to get their hands on this completely unique Mario game. Exploring 3D kingdoms with incredibly diverse environments, this will undoubtedly be unlike any Mario game Nintendo has ever released. Sure there have been 3D worlds with Mario before but nothing to this magnitude and fans cannot wait for a chance to play.

Assassin’s Creed Origins: DLC Plan Announced

Assassin’s Creed Origins: DLC Plan Announced

It is no secret that Ubisoft loves their DLC. So fans of the series were not surprised to see the company announce a host of Assassin’s Creed Origins post-launch content. The game will have a lengthy life cycle, with two major expansions and a number of smaller updates prepared to be released after the game launches later this month.





The two major DLC packs are named The Hidden Ones and The Curse of the Pharaohs. The first will launch in January of 2018 and will feature a war against the Romans many years after the events of the base game. The second involves the protagonist traveling to a mystical realm where they will find mythical creatures and ancient gods. Players will hunt for the cause of a curse that has brought dead pharaohs back to life, this DLC will launch in March 2018.

The Season Pass Has A lot To Offer

Both of these story expansions are part of the Assassin’s Creed Origins season pass, which currently runs fans $40. This also grants access to two smaller add-ons that contains new clothes and weapons. The season pass also gives the player 500 in-game credits on top of an exclusive weapon.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is also receiving a Gold Edition and a Steelbook Edition that contain the season pass for the increased cost of the copy. However, not all six of the special editions contain the extra content so be sure to read the descriptions carefully before buying. Aside from the season pass, players will receive a bunch of new updates that include a photo and educational mode, along with a horde mode where players will fight in a gladiator-like arena.

The ambitious and long-awaited open-world title releases on October 27th for the PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Ubisoft obviously has high hopes for the title and it will be cool to see all the new content in action when it releases. We will be sure to have both the game and DLC’s so be sure to check back for more on Assassin’s Creed Origins!
