The October PC game releases and events you should know about

Spooky season is already showering us with stuff to play thanks to the week-long Steam Next Fest (opens in new tab) demo event, which runs from October 3-7. The Overwatch 2 launch hits early in October, too, and then there’s a string of notable PC game releases: A new tactical RPG, a long awaited horror game, a former PlayStation exclusive, the long-delayed Gotham Knights, the new Modern Warfare 2, and more.

For a broader look at what’s still ahead this year, visit our big guide to 2022 games. Below, I’ve catalogued October’s PC game release highlights, plus a few updates and events such as Meta Connect, which will include another “unscripted” talk from John Carmack (opens in new tab). (Whatever your view on “the metaverse” may be, you know a Carmack VR thought leadership jam session will have a highlight or two. Last year (opens in new tab) he commented on adult entertainment in the metaverse and told a story about playing Beat Saber with arm weights.)
