November is finally here and with it comes a host of massive game releases.
The holiday season always aims to deliver and this year it’s no different, as we see some annual titles getting their regular entry, some long-awaited sequels, and even some newcomers to the mix.
These are the game launching in South Africa this November:

Game of Thrones: Episode 1
2 December (PC, Mac, Xbox One, PS4, iOS, Xbox 360, PS3, Android)
The team behind the award-winning The Walking Dead series brings us a Game of Thrones episodic experience on all major platforms, kicking off with Episode 1 this month.
This new story tells of House Forrester, a noble family from the north of Westeros, loyal to the Starks of Winterfell. Caught up in the events surrounding the War of the Five Kings, they are thrown into a maelstrom of bloody warfare, revenge, intrigue, and horror as they fight to survive while the seven kingdoms tear themselves apart.
Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix
5 December (PS3)
Fans of Disney, RPGs and Final Fantasy will be wiping the drool from their mouths as Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix launches this month.
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix will include Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix in high definition and with trophy support. Additionally, the collection features Kingdom Hearts Re:coded in a Theatre Mode, spanning over 3 hours of HD remastered cinematics from the original game as well as new content.
Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes
18 December (PC)
Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes has already dropped on consoles, but now Hideo Kojima’s latest adventure is hitting PCs this month.
Acting as somewhat of a prologue to the forthcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Ground Zeroes assumes that players are up to speed with Metal Gear lore, and that’s a tall-ask for anyone given the series’ elaborate history.
While Ground Zeroes may be short, it definitely offers up the level of quality one should come to expect from the series. The open-world level design gives players the option to approach the missions in any order, as well as how they’d prefer – tactical or guns blazing.
What game are you most looking forward to getting your hands on this month?
