5 Most Playable Games In The First Half Of October 2023

1 months ago By Randell Jhonson

The first half of October 2023 has been nothing short of a gaming extravaganza, with titles to cater to all tastes and preferences.

While some of the biggest blockbuster releases are still on the horizon, the early months of 2023 have been marked by a steady stream of indie gems, long-awaited sequels, and remastered classics that have kept gamers glued to their screens. 

Check details on the top five must-play games that have made early October 2023 a big gaming feast.

1. Cyberpunk Phantom Liberty

When Cyberpunk 2077 was released in 2020, it was plagued by bugs, glitches, and a scope that left many players disappointed. However, CD Projekt Red promised to rectify the situation, and they’ve delivered with Cyberpunk Phantom Liberty. 

This expansive new content, akin to The Witcher III’s extensive DLCs, plunges players back into the neon-soaked streets of Night City. With approximately 20 hours of additional gameplay, Phantom Liberty boasts a more mature narrative, introducing players to an icy spy thriller. The narrative is further enriched by the performances of acclaimed actors Idris Elba and Christine Minji Chang. 

CD Projekt Red has also addressed the technical issues that marred the game’s launch and expanded the RPG elements, steering the game away from its first-person shooter roots. Cyberpunk is finally ready for its close-up.

Available on: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S, Microsoft Windows

2. Lies of P 

In a sea of games inspired by the Dark Souls formula, Lies of P stands out by transporting the challenging swordplay system to a clockwork Dickensian dystopia, reminiscent of Timothée Chalamet’s style. 

The game features all the elements that make Dark Souls games beloved, from a complex character sheet to a wide range of combat styles. Lies of P offers a cast of enigmatic NPCs with cryptic dialogue hinting at a larger, mysterious world within the game. 

You’ll face daunting boss encounters against grotesque aberrations in the cursed city, including a gigantic, disfigured wind-up toy soldier known as the “Parade Master.” Lies of P perfectly captures the essence of the Soulsborne games, providing players with a rich and challenging experience.

Available on: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, Xbox Cloud Gaming, macOS, Microsoft Windows

3. Mortal Kombat I 

NetherRealm Studios has shown a deep commitment to the lore of the Mortal Kombat series over the past decade, crafting epic sagas and narratives for its iconic cast of ninjas, demons, and fighters. Mortal Kombat I is a reboot of the series’ chronology, offering players a single-player campaign that functions as a full-length animated feature, punctuated by exhilarating brawls. 

The multiplayer ladder is as solid as ever, maintaining the franchise’s signature brutality. While it might not be the most innovative take on the 30-year legacy of the series, NetherRealm Studios continues to deliver the fierce combat and gripping narratives that fans have come to love.

Available on: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S, Nintendo Switch, and Microsoft Windows

4. Starfield 

After eight years in development, Starfield marks Bethesda’s return to its open-world RPG roots. The game embodies Bethesda’s classic design principles, complete with numerous side quests, dungeon exploration, interactions with a diverse cast of characters, and the occasional game-breaking bug. 

This time, the game takes players to the far reaches of the Milky Way, offering a conservative yet captivating open-world experience. Despite concerns that Bethesda might have focused on addressing fundamental issues in its game design philosophy during those eight years, the allure of uncharted cosmic exploration quickly draws players in. Starfield is a testament to the enduring appeal of Bethesda’s open-world formula.

Available on: Xbox Series X and Series S, Microsoft Windows

5. Immortals of Aveum 

In a world saturated with first-person shooters focusing on realistic firearms, Immortals of Aveum takes a refreshing and imaginative approach. Players assume the role of a daring warlock who hurls destructive magical beams from their fingertips at a rapid pace. The game replaces bullets and shells with spells and incantations, creating an exhilarating and visually stunning FPS experience. 

The dynamic combat system encourages players to experiment with a variety of magical abilities, offering a unique twist on the traditional first-person shooter. Aveum’s enchanting magical world sets it apart from the sea of conventional shooters and breathes new life into the genre.

Available on: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S, Microsoft Windows

In summary, the first half of October 2023 has been a gaming paradise, with titles catering to all gaming preferences. From Night City’s cyberpunk streets to the cursed dystopia of Lies of P, from the brutal battles of Mortal Kombat to the cosmic exploration of Starfield, and the magical mayhem of Immortals of Aveum, there’s something for every gamer to savor. So, whether you’re in the mood for epic quests, intense combat, or cosmic adventures, these games have got you covered.
