New Video Games Out This Week: Call of Duty, The Outer Worlds, and More –

out this week duty

You smell that? That’s the smell of Call of Duty week. That’s right, the inevitable best-selling game of the year, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, is set to arrive very soon, and as a result, many games have opted against releasing this week. Despite this, there are a few noteworthy games dropping over the next few days, including two pretty notable titles releasing the same day Modern Warfare hits. In addition to the popular first-person shooter returning, this week in video games will take players to space, back to a PS1 classic, and into the ring with the Undertaker.

That said, here are all the noteworthy releases coming this week that are worth, at the very least, checking out a trailer of. As always, it’s important to keep in mind that this is far from an exhaustive list of new releases. Nobody has time for that. However, this is a rundown of the most salient new releases, plus a few notable ports. Further, while expansions, remasters, and remakes are included, games going into Early Access or not. Lastly, mobile games that aren’t also coming to other platforms aren’t usually included, however, every now and again exceptions are made.
