Five video games not to be missed this fall

The Last of Us Part I (September 2)

Originally released in 2013 on PS3, The Last of US is undoubtedly one of the most significant games of the last ten years. In 2014, the game had already made a little beauty for the PS4 with The Last of Us: Remastered. In this new school year, it returns once again in the form of a remake called The Last of Us Part I. This time, the graphics have been optimized for the PS5. There are also many bonuses such as the Left Behind extension, a 1h40 documentary on the making of the game and comments from the directors. In short, it’s the perfect opportunity to (re)discover this little video game nugget.

Splatoon 3 (September 9)

The start of the 2022 school year will also be on Nintendo Switch with the great return of Splatoon. The principle does not change, you will have to fight with paint guns. Multiplayer will be in the spotlight in Splatoon 3 with Territory War, this emblematic mode where two teams of four compete to ink as much ground as possible. If you prefer co-op, the Salmon Run mode is for you. As a team, with three other players, you will have to fend off waves of dangerous Salmonoid bosses. Finally, the solo will not be forgotten with a new Story mode that will put players in the shoes of Number 3 in his fight against the evil Octarians.

FIFA 23 (September 30)

What would a return to school be without a new FIFA? This is no exception to the rule with FIFA 23. If we should not expect a great revolution, this FIFA will go down in history since… it will be the last! Indeed, from next year and after more than 20 years of association, the FIFA license will no longer be exploited by Electronic Arts. At EA, the license will be rebranded as EA Sports FC. The end of an era ! In the meantime, FIFA 23 will still have some new features like an updated Volta mode and a revamped career mode which should offer more freedom to the player, both in terms of gameplay and personalization.

Overwatch 2 (October 4)

A little over six years after its release, Overwatch is getting a facelift and changing its formula. The main novelty is that Activision Blizzard’s game will be free-to-play. The game will be available on all platforms, from PC to Switch, Xbox and PlayStation, so you won’t have to pay to play it. Beyond this change in economic model, Overwatch 2 will offer a new five-on-five multiplayer mode, new or reworked characters, new modes and new maps. See you on October 4 to find out all about it.

Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope (October 20)

If none of these video games appeal to you and you’re not in too much of a rush, wait until October 20. It is on this date that the new Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope will be released, exclusively on Switch. In 2017, we totally fell in love with this amazing marriage between the world of Super Mario and that of the Rabbids. Despite its goofy appearance, it was an excellent turn-based tactics game. This new adventure will take you this time to the edge of the galaxy. Players will be able to choose from nine characters to create the winning trio. And it looks epic once again!
