Play Time – This Season’s Hottest Games
While it might be getting a little chilly outside, the gaming world could scarcely be hotter, with an absolute truckload of awesome arrivals hitting shelves this season. That’s why we turned our eye towards the best of the bunch in the new issue of PLAY Magazine, where we tackled the titles to get excited about!
From footy sims to shoot-em-ups, and fantasy spectaculars to retro highlights, there’s something for just about everyone; you can check out the full rundown right here, but if you need a taste immediately, then read on!
CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE
October 25th; PS4, Xbox One, PC
Reimagining the military masterpiece, this retcon is everything you’d want from a truly modern game; from life-like visuals to edgy and realistic gameplay, it’s stuff to make your hairs stand on end. The original remains one of the most beloved games of the last two decades; don’t be surprised if this effort also goes down in history!
POKÉMON SWORD AND SHIELD
November 15th; Nintendo Switch
Now, what’s better than a new Pokémon platform game? That’s right – two of them! Set in a dynamic and diverse region begging to be explored, the crisp animation really looks the part, and the combination of new and old in gameplay looks like the best of both worlds to us. The only decision is which you pick up first – although you could, ahem, CATCH THEM ALL!
