With the likes of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Dishonored 2 releasing this month, November is proving to be a pretty big period for some massive game releases, but there are some smaller titles that still deserve some attention. Here’s 5 games you shouldn’t overlook in November 2016:
Super Dungeon Bros
Release date: 1 November 2016 (Xbox One, PS4, PC)
If you’re looking for a great 4-player co-op game to enjoy with your mates this month, Super Dungeon Bros looks to be it! Basically, think Castle Crashers meets dungeon crawling with platforming and puzzle elements.
The gameplay is fast, frantic, and colourful, with a variety of weapons and abilities to unleash on the grotesque horde that await in the dungeons. It’s a game that requires teamwork, bravery, and a good sense of humour, and it’s definitely on our must-plays this month.
Assassin’s Creed: Ezio Collection
Release date: 15 November 2016 (Xbox One, PS4)
To make up for a mainline Assassin’s Creed skipping this year, Ubisoft is putting the best entries in the series into one package. Again. Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection bringsAssassin’s Creed 2, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and the story’s finale, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, these are only the single-player campaigns and add-ons from the various game, and not the multiplayer which features in Brotherhood and Revelations. Of course, you will get the graphical upgrades you’d expect with modern remasters, including improved frame-rates, graphical fidelity, and refined visuals.
Killing Floor 2
Release date: 18 November 2016 (PS4, PC)
Killing Floor 2 is the successor to the ridiculously fun and successful original title, that was released in 2009. Like its predecessor, Killing Floor 2 is a gore-filled, co-op first-person shooter that uses a simple approach: you see something that looks messed up, and you kill it; you get money for doing it and you buy better weapons. Rinse and repeat.
The enjoyment through is how addictive and brutal the gameplay is, allowing you and up to 5 other friends to team-up and unleash hell in a fight for survival. The monsters are grotesque, the guns are awesome, and if you’re looking for violence and brutality this month, then Killing Floor 2 is your game.
Darksiders: Warmastered Edition
Release date: 22 November 2016 (Xbox One, PS4, Wii U); 29 November 2016 (PC)
If you missed out on 2010’s excellent apocalyptic hack-‘n-slash Darksiders (or perhaps you just want to give it another playthrough), the award-winning action adventure game is getting a remastered edition this month. Titled Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, the game will support 1080p/60fps on PS4 and Xbox One, although that’ll drop to 30fps on Wii U. The PC version, meanwhile, includes support for 4K resolutions and “additional visual options”.
Darksiders was one of our favourite games of the last generation, with fun, creative gameplay, a gorgeous art-style and a compelling fantasy story. Definitely worth checking out when the Warmastered edition arrives later this month.
Pokemon: Sun and Moon editions
Release date: 23 November 2016 (3DS)
Thanks to the revamped interest from Pokémon Go, Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon are gearing up to be two of the most anticipated Pokémon releases to date. Sun and Moonintroduce three new partner Pokémon that will accompany you as you set out on an all-new adventure and discover new Pokémon and regional variants in the Alola region – a brand new area in the Pokémon world.
In traditional Pokémon fashion, players will be able to catch and train Pokémon as they encounter captains, and kahunas of the 4 main Islands of the region. while also discovering the mystery of the Legendary Pokémon and stopping Team Skull from causing chaos throughout the land.
