The Bard’s Tale IV
Release Date: September 18
Developer: inXile Game
The Bard’s Tale IV is mashing up the “old-skool” turn-based combat genre and open world exploration and travelling. This is the first try in the classic dungeon crawler franchise for almost 30 years, since the first game was published in 1991. There will be more than 20 dungeons to explore, so get ready for some sweet surprises!
Release Date: November 14
It’s bigger than its predecessor, and when we say bigger, we mean bigger by almost four times. Moreover, Fallout 76 will be always-online. And yet another detail — within Fallout 76 you will be able to nuke co-players’ bases. Isn’t it awesome? Also Fallout 76 is going to remove NPC gameplay for online mode. Now let’s talk about early access to the game.
You can get it via buying Xbox White, because Microsoft’s white Xbox One X includes a copy of Fallout 76! So if you were planning to buy one, now you have one more reason to do so!
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Release Date: October 5
Ubisoft decided to move the game world to ancient Greece, a few hundred years before the events of Assassin’s Creed Origins. And this may be a bit confusing, we know… Anyway, to play the game you should pick either Alexios or Kassandra to start a trip which Ubisoft has called “an epic greek tragedy”.
Sure thing, there are plenty of RPG elements: you can choose dialogues and possible actions; you can equip yourself with a new armor system that mirrors Origin’s weapons system, and more, more, more. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is one of the most expected games of October 2018.
