Cute Cartographers, Sci-Fi Cyberpunk Samurai, Hacker Legions in London, Escape Abandoned Towns and Bust some Ghosts all before Halloween is just some of the stuff you have to look forward to this week in gaming. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week a little light is Carto. While we love the look of this top down adventurer what really sets it apart is the ability to reshape the map that can turn riverside fields into islands or open up unexplored areas with this sliding picture puzzle like mechanic. You can play this first on PlayStation on Monday with Xbox and Steam not far behind on Tuesday (and Switch on Wednesday).

Also from Tuesday sharpen your Katana with Ghostrunner. This Mirror’s Edge meets Samurai meets Cyberpunk first person has you slicing through (literally) waves of enemies within a neon filled sci-fi city backdrop. It lands on Monday for Playstation with Xbox on Tuesday followed by Steam on Wednesday.

And the big title for the week is the next installment of the hacker Watchdog series with Watchdogs Legion. Swapping Chicago for London the new game doesn’t have you playing as a single protagonist but rather dozens with the new recruiting system letting you play as anyone from a construction worker with rideable drones, to a spy with access to Bond Q tech cars, to senior citizens who may spontaneously have a heart attack and die. Pick this up on PlayStation first on Wednesday with Xbox on Thursday for single player with Co-Op support coming after the December 3rd patch.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes out for two games to end your week with some Halloween vibes. First up is the branching narrative of The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope. following in the style of Man of Medan this time you can play in either single or multiplayer modes as you take control of 4 students and their professor trapped in the abandoned town of Little Hope. Make choices and your own ending when you can start playing this on Thursday with PlayStation or Saturday with Xbox.

And the second game is just the thing if there is something strange happening in your neighbourhood. The awesomeness that is Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is going to be available for free for PC gamers via the Epic store this Friday through to next Thursday. Not a new game with you taking control of the new guy in the Ghostbuster team this is the unofficial 3rd movie of the series with original voice actors and script writers that pick up where the second movie left off. Yes this is also already available on other platforms but only free on the Epic Store this week.

If you bought any of these on the release day, tell us how it went! Also, as always did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments
