Top New Video Games Out On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Week -- October 4-10, 2020

It's all about early access this week.

9 Comments

This week's episode of New Releases revolves around early access: Baldur's Gate III is debuting as a work-in-progress, while Foregone is getting its full release. The indie crowd can also check out I Am Dead, while the sports and racing fans can dig into FIFA 21 and Ride 4, respectively. Here are some of the hottest games launching this week!

Foregone -- October 5

Available on: PC

It might look like Dead Cells, but this action game features hand-crafted levels, not randomly generated ones. As you explore, you'll get better and better loot, helping you take down the game's many enemies and big bosses. Foregone is leaving early access this week for a full release on PC, with console versions arriving on the 13th.

It's been 20 years since Baldur's Gate 2, and Divinity: Original Sin 2 developer Larian is taking us back to the Forgotten Realms. Fans of the original games (and Dungeons & Dragons in general) can expect plenty of turn-based combat and dialogue choices as your work to ride the world of the Ilithid invaders. The third game enters early access this week, and playable first act is said to be even bigger than Original Sin 2's.

As the name implies, I Am Dead puts you in the shoes of Morris, a deceased museum curator now living his afterlife in the town of Shelmerston. But the town is about to be destroyed, so Morris will have to look inside the memories of his fellow residents to solve puzzles and save the island.

FIFA 21 -- October 9

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch

EA Play members are already playing FIFA 21 early, but it's launching this week for the rest of us. Volta football and Ultimate Team are back, and this time the latter also features co-op play. Other additions to this year's game include new ways to attack the goal while on offense and more management office.

The latest in the motorbike racing series features a revamped career mode, letting you rise up through the American, European, or Asian League. You'll encounter a host of weather conditions and a day/night cycle as you race at a variety of tracks around the world. Ride 4 also has a new Endurance Mode, requiring you to carefully select which bike you want to ride for an extended period of time.

More Ride 4 Royal Coverage:

October is just getting started, and there are many more video games to come. Next week, we'll take a look at the much-anticipated Torchlight 3 and Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, which is putting a new spin on the beloved racing series.

Looking forward to Balder's Gate but being bigger than Original Sin's 2 is actually too big for me. I like to experience a complete story but I really don't have that kind of time. Original Sin 2 took me at least a couple years to get through.

The Foregone listing is incorrect. Only the PC version releases on the 5th, with the consoles releasing on the 13th.

@naomha1: Foregone is an Epic Store timed exclusive. I guess it’s releasing on Steam in Mar 2021. I’m only getting this from the discussions on Steam so I’m not 100% certain that it’s accurate. The official game website only says the game will be leaving early access for PC this month, but it doesn’t mention Epic.

Super-stoked about BG3, but I don't think I want to dive in until the whole thing is done. It'll be worth the wait, if my enjoyment of Larian's other work (and BG1 & 2) are any guide.

Also, definitely in for Foregone... Looks fun.

@Pyrosa: Same. I'm not down with buying a game where only a portion of it is available. Early access release, you know it is going to be full of bugs.
