The first week of October 2020 will bring some exciting releases many gamers have been waiting years for, Star Wars: Squadrons and Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time.
Star Wars: Squadrons
We’ve been waiting for a new decent Star Wars game solely focused on space battles for some time now. Yes, there are some space battles to be had in Star Wars Battlefront 2, but we needed a game that was only the space battles. Although, if you’re familiar with the Starfighter Assault Mode in Star Wars Battlefront II, then we’re sure a lot of those resources were used here. While many are still upset that Electronic Arts has the reigns behind another Star Wars title, we’re sure they’re not going to bend us over with microtransactions. They should have learned from their Star Wars Battlefront II debacle. All we want is Michael Bay-esque laser-on-metal explosions in space, is that too much to ask?
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time
Toys For Bob and Activision knew exactly what they were doing when naming Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time because it really is about time for a new original Crash bandicoot title. No, remasters don’t count. Fortunately, the N. Sane Trilogy helped remind us that this crazy bandicoot, one of the original PlayStation mascots, still existed. However, Crash Bandicoot made his way into plenty of rumors during his extended five-year hiatus before 2016. Nobody knew Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time was in development. It wasn’t until earlier this year that the game was teased with a leak for the box art, title, and the oddly named developer. The game was formally announced on June 22 at the Summer Game Fest.
The first week of October looks like it’s going to keep us a little busy with space battles and nostalgic bandicoots, and we’re looking forward to seeing what the rest of October has in store for us.
