After September, which brought us a bunch of big games, it feels hard to imagine that October's release schedule is even more packed with titles to be excited about.

On the heels of Starfield, a Mortal Kombat reboot, EA Sports FC 24, Pinocchio soulslike Lies of P, the massive Cyberpunk 2077 update 2.0 and Phantom Liberty DLC, NBA 2K24, and more, this month’s lineup will bring a new Assassin’s Creed game, sequels to Spider-Man and Alan Wake, new 2D entries in two of the biggest platforming series of all time and much more.

Plenty of games to go over, so we've picked the ten best video games coming out in October 2023.
