The massive gaming month of November is continuing to be kind to gamers with some big releases this week. Following up the launch of Fallout 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 earlier this month, we finally get the full release of Star Wars Battlefront, as well as some other exciting games to scratch all types of itch this week.
Star Wars Battlefront
Release date: 20 November 2015 (Xbox One, PS4, PC) – Buy on Raru.co.za
The next FPS epic from EA DICE is arriving this week, and Star Wars: Battlefront showcases quite a few reasons for people to be excited. In 2005, the cult classic was released, and this year we’re getting a reboot that DICE will hope reaches the heights of its predecessor.
Battlefront is full of the usual multiplayer game modes, some more interesting variations, and a co-op Horde mode, which, as you could guess from the name, requires players need to survive successive waves of enemies (much like that of Call of Duty‘s Zombies mode) while possibly fulfilling additional objectives, like protecting an objective or destroying an AT-ST. The environments look great and feel authentic, and so do the weapons.
There are a lot of promising signs from this title that suggest it could be a fantastic investment for FPS and multiplayer aficionados this week.
Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends
Release date: 20 November 2015 (Xbox One, PS4) – Buy on Raru.co.za
If you’ve been in some desperate need of some martial art animal action, Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends launches this week.
