Release Date: October 12, 2018
The newest Black Ops looks like it will have a lot of potential. They are adding their own version of battle royale called Blackout. This Black Ops version of Zombies looks like an exciting new adventure and story. You have the ability to go underwater, but watch out so can the zombies! There also is a tiger with red eyes that you fight in a coliseum, which I’m definitely interested to know more about. If you pre-order certain editions of this game you will be able to participate in the Private Beta. In order to get the pre-order extras, you must get the deluxe versions of the game or higher. Standard Edition and Digital Standard do not get pre-order bonuses. For more information on what you can get with your pre-order go here.

3. Super Smash Bros Ultimate
Release Date: December 7, 2018
Check out our previous post about this game here.
Everyone’s favorite multiplayer game! This Smash Bros game is going to be only for the Nintendo Switch. The great thing about Nintendo is that they are allowing gamers to use their old GameCube controllers to defeat their opponents! There are so many great features and charaters that they have added to this game. If you would like to know more about this game, check out Nintendo’s Smash Bros Blog. There are no pre-order bundles for this game, but if you prefer physical games you are going to want to pre-order, as I foresee this game being sold out. You can also pre-order a digital copy of the game from any retailer that is working with Nintendo.
2. Battlefield V
Release Date: October 19, 2018, for everyone*
This Battlefield is based during WW2. Like Battlefield 1 there will be war stories. According to their website, “Experience the most intense, immersive Battlefield yet. You will never be the same.” For the first time in the Battlefield series, you can play as a female character. This news is exciting not only for myself, but for all fellow female gamers who are tired of having to play as a male character. If you pre-order you get Early Access to Battlefield V Open Beta, get one additional Special Soldier Set of paratrooper gear, and more. You can find more information or pre-order the game here.
*The game will release on October 11th for EA Access and Origin Access Basic Play First Trial, October 16 for Battlefield™ V Deluxe Edition early enlister access, and October 19 for the Battlefield™ V Standard Edition.
