New Video Game Releases For The Week Of October 5, 2014

The new video game releases for the week of October 5, 2014 are here, and if you thought you were poor after last week’s games, hold onto your wallets. There are a lot of games that are vying for your attention (and money) this week.

Alien: Isolation is leading the charge for this week’s list of new video games. Developed by Creative Assembly, the studio behind the popular Total War series, the game is breaking new ground for the studio as they attempt to undo some of the damage done by the just plain awful Aliens: Colonial Marines from Gearbox. Alien: Isolation deviates from previous entries into the franchise by only featuring one Xenomorph that cannot be killed. This requires the player, as the daughter of Ellen Ripley, to use stealth and misdirection to survive against an Alien that has been programmed to be completely random in its hunts. This makes it impossible to find a pattern in the creature’s behavior, and as a result, hopefully creating a terrifying experience for the player.

PlayStation Plus members will also be happy for this week’s list of new video games, as it features DriveClub. The game features 11 tracks and 10 cars for free for subscribers to PS Plus with the option to upgrade to the full game for a discounted price. Originally a launch game for the PlayStation 4, the title has been pushed back for various reasons and is making its debut almost a year past its time.

Other titles of note this week are NBA2K 15, Skylanders Trap Team, and the latest game from Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi Terra Battle, a free to play iOS and Android title. Our complete list of new video games can be found below.
