After seeing the games that will come out on PS4 and Nintendo Switch, it’s time to continue with the october releases to know which ones will appear in the PC services.

This month will bring together several exclusives between Steam, Microsoft Store or even Blizzard’s own store, being another remarkable month for Windows users, which never stops lowering the bar for many months that continue to pass.

Star Wars: Squadrons

  • When: October 2
  • Where: Steam and Origin
  • How much: 39.99 euros (Steam) | 39.99 euros (Origin)
  • Exclusive? No, it will be released simultaneously on PS4 and Xbox One

EA is fully committed to space battles in Star Wars: Squadrons, as if it were a Star Wars Battlefront, but only with those aerial combat that they like so much since the first time we saw the George Lucas films. And that, despite being focused online, will have its own campaign.

  • How much: to be confirmed (reservation not yet available)
  • Exclusive? Yes

The creator of the more than remarkable Thomas Was Alone or the most recent John Wick Hex, surprised us yesterday announcing The Solitaire Conspiracy, a rarity that carries the formula of the classic card (Lonely) by other paths with a narrative background in between. And with a conspiracy in the background, of course.

  Article: Microsoft removes avatar weapons from Live

With Konami’s bet for the new season already on the market, EA Sports does not want to be left behind either and this year it is FIFA 21, where again it will bet on polishing different sections of control and introducing other types of novelties, where its star modes. The bad thing is that this version for PC will be identical to that of PS4 and Xbox One, without harnessing all its power.

Partisans 1941

  • When: October 14
  • Where: Steam
  • How much: to be confirmed (reservation not yet available)
  • Exclusive? Yes

The Germans Daedalic are in charge of editing Partisans 1941, from the Alter Games studio. A game set in the Second World War that drinks a lot from the Commandos, Desperados and co, with that mix between tactical strategy and stealth. And being able to make our group evolve by gaining experience.

Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition

  • When: October 15

  • Exclusive? Yes

As it did with the “definitive editions” of the first Age of Empires and its sequel, Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings, Microsoft now offers us a most complete remake of that misunderstood (and ahead of its time by ideas novel and risky) called Age of Empires III. All of it half the price compared to the original with all its DLC. And with the incentive of the Game Pass.

Amnesia: Rebirth

  • When: October 20
  • Where: Steam and Epic Games Store
  • How much: 22.49 euros (Steam) | 22.49 euros (Epic)
  • Exclusive? No, it will be released at the same time on PS4
  Leaked Windows XP code reveals Microsoft had a secret ‘Aqua’ theme that made it look like Mac OS X

Who didn’t have a bad time with Amnesia by Frictional Games? For the nightmare is far from over, as a harrowing journey through desolation and despair is presented again in which we will explore the limits of human resilience.

  • Exclusive? No, it will be released at the same time on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One

Ghostrunner

  • When: October 27
  • Where: Steam and Epic Games Store
  • How much: 23.99 euros (Steam) | 23.99 euros (Epic)
  • Exclusive? No, it will be released at the same time on PS4 and Xbox One

Ghostrunner is the kind of game that can end up surprising, since the time we tried it we loved it with that mixture of sensations a la Hotline Miami and Mirror’s Edge, all wrapped up in a cyberpunk aesthetic that is so fashionable again. A frenzy that will require patience and expertise.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

  • When: October 27
  • Where: Blizzard Store
  • How much: 39.99 euros
  • Exclusive? Yes

Update: Blizzard has just notified its delay for the end of the year.

  The turnover of Chinese cloud companies grows 65%, but all together they continue to invoice less than Microsoft Azure

A whole story like World of Warcraft seems to have no end in its more than 15 years of history and its Shadowlands expansion is another example of this by providing a breath of air with a trip to the afterlife. That place is called The Shadowlands and all mortal souls await us, noble and evil alike. Spooky.

Watch Dogs Legion

  • When: October 29
  • Where: Uplay and Epic Games Store
  • How much: 59.99 euros (Epic) | 59.99 euros (Uplay)
  • Exclusive? No, it will be released simultaneously on PS4, Xbox One and Stadia

Watch Dogs Legion is just what the underrated Ubisoft saga needed to give the final blowback thanks to that London whose civilians we can recruit almost entirely, offering infinite ways to face a mission. What we tried a few months ago we loved and it is crazier than ever. The best? That to make the leap to PS5 you will not have to pay any extra euro.
