Gaming Spotlight: Autumn 2013

Posted 02/10/2013 by BrightHouse Team

The days are getting shorter, there’s a chill in the air, and autumn is closing in. A dull and depressing time of year for some, but for gamers it’s the premier season for new releases, and the perfect time for guilt-free evenings spent indoors. The latest consoles from Xbox and PlayStation will be arriving very soon, but in the meantime there are plenty of great games to keep you occupied, and fantastic new releases to look forward to. Here’s a selection of what’s on offer.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

This series now hoists the skull and crossbones, and sails its way into the Caribbean during the golden age of piracy, with Edward Kenway as its new captain. The game starts off in 1715 when pirates ruled the clear blue seas of the Caribbean, plundering and terrorising the fleets of the European powers. Assassin’s Creed IV promises more of the free-running, Templar-bashing fun of the previous games, but now set in a huge and beautiful open world, with sea-battles, underwater exploration, treasure hunting, and of course, swashbuckling.

Released on Friday 1st November for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii U, and PC

Grand Theft Auto V

GTA heads back to Los Santos in the fifth instalment of this massive series, giving players the biggest and most diverse open world yet. You’re now playing the role of not one but three protagonists, each with their own special skill-sets and stories. The main storyline sees you setting up and executing a series of heists together, in an attempt to solve the money-troubles of the three main characters. As well as the main missions, there of hundreds of other activities to enjoy all over the city of Los Santos and beyond, including playing a bit of golf, a pleasant cycle through the countryside, or robbing a liquor store.

Out now on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3


If the season just isn’t giving you enough of a football fix, then why not take charge of your very own team, and feel the tension and exhilaration of the match as if you were really there. FIFA 14 brings a host of new technologies to the series, including realistic ball physics, better teammate intelligence, and Pure Shot to create the most satisfying and rewarding goals. You can also experience the world of professional scouting to find players online to bolster your squad, and build the perfect winning team.

Grid 2

The BAFTA award-winning racing game returns with this sequel, promising more thrills, stunning visuals, and better opponent AI to give you the most exciting and immersive motorsport experience yet.

There will be plenty of gadgets to help players solve crimes and bring down the bad guys, as well as new and familiar locations to explore in the dark corners of Gotham.
