Obsidian's sprawling, sharply written adventure is your Players' Choice winner for October 2019.
Please join us in congratulating Obsidian, whose new narrative-focused adventure The Outer Worlds has earned the Players’ Choice award for October 2019! The surprisingly grounded new campaign in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare helped propel Infinity Ward’s newest outing into the runner-up spot, with our very own MediEvil rounding out the top three. Well-deserved acclaim on all parts! As always, thanks for voting — and stay tuned for November’s poll.
Lots of games this month! Hit the poll below to cast your vote for the best new game of October 2019, choosing from big releases like Modern Warfare, Concrete Genie, MediEvil, The Outer Worlds, ReadySet Heroes, Indivisible, Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, Afterparty, Outer Wilds, and a whole bunch more.
We’ll keep the polls open throughout this weekend, so make sure you get those votes in before Sunday at 11:59pm Pacific.
Two months to go… any predictions for November and December?
What is the voting criteria? That’s up to you! If you were only able to recommend one new release to a friend that month, which would it be? In keeping with our long tradition in the Game of the Year Awards, remastered or re-released games won’t qualify. Ambitious, larger-scale rebuilds and remakes like Shadow of the Colossus and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will.
How are nominees decided? The PlayStation.Blog and PlayStation Store editorial teams will gather a list of that month’s most noteworthy releases and use it to seed the poll. Write-in votes will be accepted.
