New Game Releases for the week of October 4, 2015

It’s the week of October 4, 2015, and here is your list of this week’s game releases:

Rock Band 4
Rock Band makes a comeback on the next gen consoles with over 60 songs on hand, and you can count on about a bazillion DLC tracks to come. In fact, if you pre-ordered the game, you should be entitled to 30 additional tracks right off the bat. And in case you didn’t want to buy a whole new set of instruments, PS4 legacy instruments will work if you still have their USB dongles, but Xbox One performers will need to shell out $25 for a wireless adapter.

Elite Dangerous
Having been out for a bit on PC, the dangerous migration to Xbox One happens on the 6th. Check out Dan’s review of the PC version below, but you can expect all the intergalactic planetary fun on either port.

Transformers: Devastation
Ok. Deep breath.

This is the kind of thing video games promised us from the beginning. The ability to live like your childhood heroes, and for the first time in the Transformers universe, they’re giving me that opportunity exactly the way I wanted it to be. Devastation looks teriffic – bar none. Now, does it play as well as it looks? Not so sure, but we will find out when it drops Tuesday.

Here are the rest of the week’s releases below. A few other notables are Disgaea 5 as well as Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection – both for the PS4.
