We’re still up to our eyeballs in last week’s big new EA shooter, and here comes another one: Titanfall 2 is here to suck up whatever time you have left.

Not a first-person fan? Never mind. World of Final Fantasy is a nice holdover till the big Final Fantasy launch later this year. Or you could dive back into Dark Souls with the first DLC. Of course, if you do like RPGs you might want to consider Skyrim Special Edition.

There’s a lot of episodic news this week, with new chapters of Batman: The Telltale Series and King’s Quest as well as a bundled release of every Minecraft: Story Mode episodes, including the bonus episodes. You can grab that at retail, by the way; we intend to hand them out to the Minecraft-obsessed bairns in our lives.

Although not many triple-A release dare to go toe-to-toe with the shooters at this time of year, there are loads of terrific, anticipated titles this week from more niche genres. Look for Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter, Farming Simulator 17, Dragonball Xenoverse 2, Nobunaga’s Ambition: Sphere of Influence – Ascension and even Just Dance 2017.

If you’re into creepy or horror games, it’s worthwhile poking through the more obscure digital releases this week; many of them are spooky efforts dropping this week in celebration of Halloween.

Finally, let’s give a little shout out to Clockwork Empires, the latest from the delightful minds at Dungeons of Dredmor developer Gaslamp Games.
