This week in video games: First take a look at Command & Overcome remaster, Payday 2 again from the useless

Starbreeze has a brand new CEO and a plan to get again on cast flooring. And that plan? The heist of our age: Reviving Payday 2 construction after a yr’s hiatus. Someone get the drill, the C4, and the windowless van.

That information, plus Battlefield V heads to Wake Island, Ubisoft delays Watch Canines Legion and the remainder of its 2020 lineup, 28 seconds of the Command & Overcome remaster, and Agent 47 dons a pumpkin for Halloween.

That is gaming information for October 21 to 25.

Loose frights

It’s nice to peer Bloober Group getting a bit love. After making a gift of Observer closing week, Epic’s again with Layers of Worry as one in every of this week’s loose sport choices. ‘Tis the season finally, with Halloween proper across the nook—although if frights aren’t your favourite, you’ll be able to additionally seize a replica of the Portal-esque puzzler Q.U.B.E. 2.

And subsequent week is a double-dose of Halloween spirit, with Dress Quest the pleasant providing and Frictional’s good Soma the spookier.

The Marble Nest

After all, Epic’s now not the one one engaging in Halloween. Pathologic 2 is freeing its standalone enlargement The Marble Nest subsequent week, a spin-off tale that still serves as form of a demo for the entire revel in. As such, it’s loose for Pathologic 2 house owners and $10 for everybody else. The trailer is suitably unsettling, in the event you’d like a glimpse at what awaits.

Bloody Harvest

Borderlands three is within the horrifying spirit as neatly, striking out its first post-release content material this week. Dubbed “The Bloody Harvest,” it introduces a brand new planet (“Heck”) filled with zombies and different seasonally suitable foes. The surroundings seems to be neat sufficient, although the cosmetics aren’t just about as bizarre as I anticipated in a post-Overwatch, submit-Fortnite technology.


Hitman, too? Certainly, Hitman 2’s working a Halloween match as neatly, an escalation contract that apparently casts Agent 47 within the function of the Headless Horseman, albeit sans-horse. It’s fairly a trailer, with our bodies being dragged into ritual circles and a screechy violin to punctuate the motion. Nearly makes me want for a Hitman sport that leans into the weirdness on show right here.
