8 Video Games You’ll Want to Buy in November


8 Video Games You’ll Want to Buy in November

The year is nearly over, but the influx of quality games doesn't let up this November.

Every month this year has been packed with must-own video game titles, but the holiday season is upon us, when publishers release their best games to entice indulgent shoppers and noble gift givers.

Frankly, there is an absurd number of games hitting store shelves this November, and that comes after October's amazing selection of games. Last month, we saw blockbuster games like Super Mario Odyssey with its iconic platforming and exploration. Assassin's Creed Origins also took inspiration from recent open world games like Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, delivering some excellent combat, RPG-like progression, and challenging stealth gameplay amidst the wonder and intrigue of Ptolemaic Egypt.

Whether you're on the hunt for a hectic first-person shooter, tough melee action, and most anything in between, November has you covered. We start the month off with Call of Duty: WWII, pitting players against the fascist regime that dragged the world into the deadly war. If the historic first-person action is too dense for you, you might want to dive into the science-fiction action in Star Wars Battlefront II, which delivers a rich new campaign and overhauled gameplay. If you're feeling a bit nostalgic, enjoy any number of remastered video games coming out in November instead. Check out our picks below.
