The super busy month of October is over but that doesn’t mean the new games won’t keep flowing with a whole host of titles arriving on Xbox throughout November. With huge triple A titles, some unique indies and a few remasters all arriving, you better make sure you start writing that Christmas list a bit early.
The following will all be arriving in stores near you throughout November 2016.
Super Dungeon Bros. – Xbox One
It may be arriving for free to all Xbox Live Gold members as part of the Xbox Games With Gold scheme for November 2016, but if you’re not a Gold member, then you’ll be needing to spend a bit of money for the latest cooperative title to arrive on the console.
With Axl, Feddie, Lars and Ozzie going deep into the darkest dungeons of Rökheim, and the recent announcement that they’ll be joined by four Broettes as well, Super Dungeon Bros will bring you multiple worlds and endless dungeon combinations, plenty of weapons and a whole ton of missions to get involved in.
With both online and local co-op in place, if you’ve got a friend or three and fancy going dungeon crawling, the Super Dungeon Bros will deliver a rather unique experience.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – Xbox One
There are certain franchises which need no selling and Call of Duty is one of those.
Chances are that no matter whether you’re a gamer or not, you would understand the draw of CoD and that means Infinite Warfare is pretty much nailed on to be a huge success.
This time round, in amongst all the rubbish going on down here on earth, Activision and Infinity Ward have decided it’s probably best to forget about all the hassle and head off into space. Expect a stunning storyline, expect cinematic runs and expect warfare on the grandest possible scale.
Whether you’re interested in the solo campaign, fighting it out with mates in the multiplayer or taking on the returning Zombies, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will no doubt deliver in spades.
Cartoon Network – Battle Crashers – Xbox One
If you’re looking for a side scrolling brawler that gives you the chance to play as your favourite Cartoon Network characters then there is only one option – Battle Crashers!
Cartoon Network – Battle Crashers (to give it its full name) contains both a single player challenge and the chance to drop into some crazy interdimensional multiplayer action with up to three friends. With more than 24 levels to complete and six of your favourite Cartoon Network characters in place, all with their own unique attacks and special moves to check out, Battle Crashers may just deliver hours of fun for the entire family.
MotoRacer 4 – Xbox One
There may not be as many motorcycling titles as there are for those who prefer four wheels, but there is still a little competition for MotoRacer4 to go up against.
In fact, with the promise of high-octane racing and the chance to master two unique racing styles, MotoRacer4 seems to be going up against both Ride 2 and, to a lesser extent, the Trials series. It does however come with plenty of speed, tons of fun and enough challenge to ensure it won’t be dropped at the starting line.
Xbox One owners may miss out on the VR experience that those on other formats can grab, but with 18 spectacular races, 10 riders and the opportunity to drop in with local and online multiplayer, MotoRacer4 may just be a viable contender for top bike racer on Xbox One.
We’ll only find out once it releases though.
Dishonored 2 – Xbox One
The original took home a whole ton of Game of the Year awards and grabbed a BAFTA for Best Game, but now Bethesda are back as Dishonored 2 brings us even more powerful supernatural abilities.
Playing as either Corvo Attano or Emily Kaldwin, Dishonored 2 is set 15 years after the rat plague was consigned to history and now you’ll be found travelling beyond the streets of Dunwall to a once-dazzling coastal city – Karnaca. You’ll need to make your way through the imaginative world, taking on epic missions and harnessing the most supernatural of powers as you hunt down your enemies and alter the fate of the Empire forever.
Watch Dogs 2 – Xbox One
Ubisoft are back as they prepare to deliver Watch Dogs 2 to the masses. After the huge success of the original, if there is one game you must pick up this month, it’s Watch Dogs 2.
San Francisco Bay plays host to a massive open world in which you’ll be taking part in car chases, running over the rooftops and hacking your way through the city as you get access to every connected device and everyone’s personal database. And it is this hacking which will hold together the entire game as you find yourself manipulating cars, drones, robots and anything else which may be available.
With a multiplayer scene which allows for both co-op and the usual versus activities, if you’re looking for an incredible living world to get involved in, then Watch Dogs 2 will deliver.
Assassins Creed: The Ezio Collection – Xbox One
Assassin’s Creed has very nearly grabbed legendary status, and one of the key figures behind its rise to success came in the form of Ezio Auditore da Firenze, the most celebrated of all Assassins.
After seeing Unity and Syndicate both release on Xbox One over the last couple of years, it’s now time to relive the glory years of the series as Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed Revelations, arrive with enhanced visuals and a story of vengeance, intrigue and romance.
You’ll be checking out Florence, Venice, Rome and Constantinople once again as The Ezio Collection tells the tale of the centuries old Assassins vs Templars battle. Additionally, and created to complement the single-player content, it includes the complete Assassin’s Creed Lineage and Assassin’s Creed Embers short films, giving a clearer glimpse into the background of the dashing yet dangerous Ezio Auditore da Firenze, from beginning to end.
Yesterday Origins – Xbox One
Coming in slightly under the radar, Yesterday Origins will throw you into an enthralling world full of immortality. As John Yesterday you’ll need to solve puzzles and journey across time itself as you attempt to save yourself from a curse.
With a number of different eras to discover and a rich plot to hold it all together, if you’re looking to visit a new world and the riddles it brings, then Yesterday Origins may just be worth checking out.
Darksiders: Warmastered Edition – Xbox One
War – the first Horseman of the Apocalypse – stood accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between Heaven and Hell when Darksiders originally released on Xbox 360. Now though, he’s being accused again on Xbox One.
A full remaster, Darksiders: Warmastered Edition may come with one of the corniest names in the industry, but with 1080p resolution, a doubling of all texture resolutions and numerous other improvements and reworks, if you enjoyed the experience found in War’s shoes last time out (he does have shoes doesn’t he?), then you should be in your element this time round.
It’s priced damn competitively too, and the chance to mess around with War, and his fiery phantom steed, Ruin, is quite possibly too good to turn down.
We Sing – Xbox One
Originally one of the most popular Wii U titles, We Sing has been redeveloped for the very latest consoles, giving us the opportunity to show off our singing skills to the masses and belt out the killer tracks like the star we were born to be. Or at least the star we wish we were.
With some of the world’s biggest hits and most famous artists included, We Sing features tracks from across five decades with the likes of Abba, Bowie and Sia all in play. Both solo or multiplayer singing features are available and you need not worry too much about having access to a mic as We Sing works perfectly with your smartphone.
If you want to turn your Xbox One into a music channel, or just sing along to your favourite artists with your best friends in tow, then We Sing should be tempting you right in.
Final Fantasy XV – Xbox One
Final Fantasy has been around for ages, nearly three decades in fact, going through the good, the bad and the damn right ugly. Now though, the series is back on an upwards curve and when FFXV looks to release on Xbox One, we should be experiencing some of the very best it has to offer.
You see, that JRPG vibe around it makes the franchise so popular that whenever the latest iteration releases on consoles we are all left flocking to stores, ready to assign our favourite characters to our party, looking to collect the best weapons and preparing to unleash devastating attacks on all the weird and wonderful enemies we will come across.
…and that is something we’ll be doing once again when Final Fantasy XV arrives!
So that’s it for November 2016, at least in the way of physical Xbox One games. Which will you be picking up? Don’t forget to let us know in the comments below.
