The fall gaming onslaught continues in earnest this week with some big releases. Soccer fans can dive into a new story mode in FIFA 17. Those who like to drive cars fast along scenic roadways get to go Down Under in Forza Horizon 3. And yet another alien invasion needs to be stopped as XCOM 2 makes its way to consoles. Plus, a new setting for assassinations as Episode 5 arrives for Hitman. On the home video front the videogame inspired fantasy Warcraft becomes available, along with the action comedy Central Intelligence, the comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, and Blake Lively battles a great white shark in the thriller The Shallows. Hitting the big screen this week is director Tim Burton’s adaptation of the fantasy novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, the heist comedy Masterminds, and the based on true events drama Deepwater Horizon. Time for this week’s list, and remember release dates are subject to change.
