Games to Watch Out For This November

November. The last month of the year in which there are more game releases than you could ever hope to afford.

It’s pretty front-loaded November. There are a load of games being released in the first half of the month and then only a few towards the end. A lot of them you’re going to want to add to your collection though, or at least put on your Christmas list for some one else to buy for you. That way, you might have possibly completed the mighty Red Dead Redemption 2 before you get stuck in, too.

Anyway, if you wondered what games you’ve got to look forward to in November, here you go. These are the games you need to watch out for.

1

A Quiet Man

Release date: 1st November
Formats: PS4 and PC

A story-driven cinematic action game with a deaf protagonist, A Quiet Man certainly has us intrigued. Also, its combat is choreographed by Tatsuro Koike, who directed much of the action in the Yakuza franchise.

2

Diablo III Eternal Collection

Release date: 2nd November
Formats: Switch

Buy on Amazon

We’ve spent hundreds, if not thousands of hours playing Diablo III over the years, and we’re prepared to do it again now it’s making its way to Switch. If you want to kill hordes of demons on the go, you need this game.

3

LEGO Harry Potter Collection

Release date: 2nd November
Formats: Xbox One and Switch

Buy on Amazon

Released a couple of years ago on PS4, this bundle of the two LEGO Harry Potter games finally arrives on Xbox One and Switch this month. Both games in the LEGO Harry Potter Collection are a bit dated now, but if you’re a fan of Harry Potter and LEGO, it’s a must-have.

4

Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun!

Release date: 2nd November
Formats: Switch

Buy on Amazon

Fancy yourself as a good drummer? Get Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum ‘n’ Fun! bought on Switch and demonstrate your skills. There’s even a physical drum accessory available if you want the real arcade experience. It’s not necessary though.

5

Spyro Reignited Trilogy

Release date: 13th November
Formats: PS4 and Xbox One

Buy on Amazon

Relive your youth with Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Featuring the first three Spyro the Dragon games pretty much remade, it’s certain to warm your heart. Either that, or prove to be a massive disappointment.

6

World of Final Fantasy Maxima Edition

Release date: 6th November
Formats: PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC

Buy on Amazon

While World of Final Fantasy has been available on PS4, PS Vita and PC for a while now, it arrives on Xbox One and Switch this month in the form of the Maxima Edition. Featuring new content and features, it’s sure to be a must-have for Final Fantasy fans. Owners of the base game on PS4 and PC can upgrade to the Maxima Edition for a small charge too.

7

GRIP Combat Racing

Release date: 6th November
Formats: PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC

Buy on Amazon

Promising high-octane races in futuristic vehicles, fans of vehicular madness ought to keep their eyes on GRIP Combat Racing. We’ll have a review up before launch for this one, so be sure to check it out before parting with your cash.

8

Omen of Sorrow

Release date: 6th November (16th in the US)
Formats: PS4

Buy on Amazon

A fighting game featuring all manner of monstrous horrors? That sounds like our cup of tea. We don’t know a great deal about Omen of Sorrow, but we’re really hoping it’s rather good.

9

11-11 Memories Retold

Release date: 9th November
Formats: PS4, Xbox One and PC

Buy on Amazon

With its unique visuals that give it the look of an oil painting, 11-11 Memories Retold has certainly grabbed our attention. Plus, it’s by Studio Aardman of Wallace and Gromit fame. If that doesn’t get you eager to play it, we don’t know what will.

10

Hitman 2

Release date: 13th November
Formats: PS4, Xbox One and PC

Buy on Amazon

If you liked the 2016 reboot of the Hitman franchise, you’re probably going to love Hitman 2. Dropping the episodic presentation of its predecessor, it promises to offer more choice than ever as to how you achieve your goals. Also, you get to kill Sean Bean in it, which definitely makes it a day one purchase.

11

Fallout 76

Release date: 14th November
Formats: PS4, Xbox One and PC

Buy on Amazon

Fallout 76 is your typical Fallout affair, but online. We’ve played some of it and can’t quite make up our minds whether we think it’s great or a giant waste of time. Guess we’ll need to play more of it, right? While Fallout 76 is releasing on 14th November you can start playing it right now by preordering the game to gain access to its beta. You’ll be able to transfer any progress you make when the game launches, but you’ll have to put up with more bugs and glitches than normal. It’s a small price to pay to start playing it early though.

12

Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!/Eevee!

Release date: 16th November
Formats: Switch

Buy on Amazon

It’s a Pokemon game on Switch, of course you’re going to want it. Question is, will you buy the Pikachu version or the Eevee one? Oh, you’re going to buy both are you? Well look at you!

13

SNK 40th Anniversary Collection

Release date: 16th November
Formats: Switch

Buy on Amazon

If you love old SNK classics, the SNK 40th Anniversary Collection is sure to make you squee with happiness.

14

Battlefield V

Formats: PS4, Xbox One and PC

Buy on Amazon

The latest Battlefield game arrives this month, satisfying those who like their warfare on the authentic side. While the standard edition of the game doesn’t arrive until the 20th November, those with EA or Origin Access can start playing on 11th November.

15

Darksiders 3

Release date: 27th November
Formats: PS4, Xbox One and PC

Buy on Amazon

The third Darksiders game looks very good indeed, and it arrives at the end of the month. If you’re not familiar with the series, there’s still time to play through the first two games if you’re not busy with Red Dead Redemption 2. Go on, you know you want to.

16

RIDE 3

Release date: 30th November
Formats: PS4, Xbox One and PC

Buy on Amazon

Like Gran Turismo but with bikes, if you like building a collection of two-wheeled vehicles that you can tinker with before taking them out for a race, you’re likely to need RIDE 3 in your life. We played a bit of it at EGX recently and came away impressed.
