Games to Watch Out For This November

Forza Horizon 5

November already?

That means it’s Christmas next month. Yikes. This November is a little quieter than your typical year, with many of the season’s biggest releases getting delayed into early 2022. That doesn’t mean there’s nothing to look forward to, though. Quite the contrary; there’s a nice mix of AAA and indie surprises coming out this month. And some of them really are worth getting excited about.

So – read on to see our round-up of games to watch out for this November. We’ve included Amazon links below each one – if you do purchase anything via one of these links, it won’t cost you anything extra, but GameSpew will get a small percentage of the profit, and that goes a long way to keep us running. Your support means everything to us!
