October was an absolutely huge month for gamers with titles like Red Dead Redemption 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, SoulCalibur VI, Assassin's Creed Odyssey and so on. While this lineup is more than sure to satisfy almost every gamer's needs and cravings, there's actually loads more coming over the next few weeks.
If you thought October had you all set for 2018 - think again. This year is far from over. So let's see what goodness awaits in November 2018.
#5 Spyro: Reignited Trilogy
Originally scheduled for release on September 21, the Spyro: Reignited Trilogy was delayed to November. Paul Yan, the co-studio head at Toys for Bob, said that the trilogy needs more love and care for players to be able to enjoy it fully. That's fair enough if you ask us. In the words of Nintendo's great Shigeru Miyamoto: "A delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is forever."
The Spyro trilogy will include the three games that made us fall in love with the franchise: Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. The remaster will be handled by Toys for Bob who are famous for their work on the Skylanders series, and according to Activision, the Spyro collection has been remade from the ground up. It will feature new assets like full analog stick support, improved lighting, recreated cinematics and a remastered soundtrack.
Add to this the fact that Spyro is the ultimate nostalgia trip for every PlayStation fan and you've got yourself a recipe for success. Besides, Crash Bandicoot received the same remastering treatment and look at how well that game did. We're sure that Spyro will at the very least match the success of his famous marsupial buddy. The trilogy is slated for release on November 13 on PlayStation and Xbox One.
Sony Computer Entertainment
We strongly suggest you give this collection a spin, even if you've never played a Spyro game before. With remastered visuals and fantastic storytelling - Spyro's world is definitely one you will want to explore.
#4 Hitman 2
Agent 47 has returned and it's up to him to hunt down the ever mysterious Shadow Client. Hitman 2 is a sequel to the impressively successful Hitman title released in 2016. The new game will have players discover more about the dark past of Agent 47, in a similar style to that of the prequel. Use your stealth abilities as best as you can as you take out numerous unsuspecting targets.
The game will have an online multiplayer mode with missions featuring the so called elusive targets. These are people that you have to track down and kill as part of your objective. Note that these missions will only be available online, and the reason why they're called "elusive" targets is because you will have only one shot at taking them down. Should you fail, the mission will become unavailable for you to try again, so you best be locked and loaded before you set off chasing them.
This stealth-based shooter will be released on November 13 on PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One.
#3 Darksiders III
Fans of the Darksiders franchise are in for a treat this year as Darksiders III is set to deliver another fantastic hack and slash experience. Darksiders 1 and 2 both featured a different protagonist, and such is the case with the third instalment as well. You play as Fury - the only female Horseman of the Apocalypse, and your task is to bring down the Seven Deadly Sins.
The new game continues the formula of brutal action and puzzle solving, similar to that of God of War, all wrapped in the very satisfying hack and slash style. Fury is touted as the most powerful Horseman of the Apocalypse, and her blade whips and magic leave very little room for doubt. It's time to explore the world of Darksiders once again, as you take down the Seven Deadly Sins one by one.
This blazing fast action title is set to release on November 27 for PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One.
#2 Fallout 76
Bethesda decided to present their players with a completely new style of their renowned Fallout series with Fallout 76. Instead of the standard, single-player experience, Fallout 76 is an online multiplayer game where players will have to work together to attack the settlements or explore the vast open wasteland that was confirmed to be four times bigger than that of Fallout 4.
While we understand that not every hardcore Fallout fan is pleased with the route Bethesda decided to take with Fallout 76, the sheer size of the game and its MMO elements should by no means be overlooked or underestimated. After all, Bethesda proved that they very much know how to deliver a satisfying online multiplayer experience with their Elder Scrolls Online series. We just hope that the notorious bugs Bethesda can be known for don't creep their way up to our online settlements.
The game is set to release on November 14 on PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One.
#1 Battlefield V
Building on the success of the WWI setting with Battlefield 1, EA and DICE are taking their players to the trenches of WWII with Battlefield V. The new game will deliver its campaign through War Stories, just like its predecessor. With gorgeous looking visuals Battlefield games are known for, players will be able to experience the brutalities of the world's deadliest conflict through five different stories, one which features a German Tiger tank crew who question the Nazi ideology of the time that made them go to war.
While the campaign mode of Battlefield V is very similar to what we saw in the last game, there's something that makes this new title much more enticing than any other Battlefield released so far - by modern-day gaming standards at least - and that is the inclusion of the battle royale mode known as the Firestorm.
However, this mode will not be included with the base game as it is set to release in 2019 as part of the game's DLC. It's interesting that it won't be based on the standard solo or duo play, as it will include 16 squads of four players who will be battling it out to survive the fiery inferno and be the last team standing.
Battlefield V will be released on November 20 on PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One.
