November 3rd

.hack//G.U. Last Recode

Developer: CyberConnect2 | Publisher: Bandai Namco | Genre: jRPG

A remaster of a 15-years-old action RPG series from PS2. Our protagonist just created a character in a MMO game and he’s looking for revenge on a player who murdered his friend and left her real body in a coma. After 10 years since the release of the last entry, the series makes a comeback – with the fourth chapter, many fixes in core mechanics and a faster pace of action.

 

Call of Duty: WW2

Developer: Sledgehammer Games | Publisher: Activision | Genre: FPS

Seeing the success of Battlefield 1, Call of Duty FPS series comes back to its roots – the Second World War. Sledgehammer Games (CoD: Advanced Warfare) plans to place the story campaign in the western front, where the player will take a role of two soldiers from 1st Infantry Division. That means we’ll visit France, Belgium and the heart of the aggressor – Nazi Germany. In the obligatory multiplayer we’ll see maps placed in other European countries, but instead of making our MP hero class, we’ll choose one from pre-set five classes. There will be also Nazi Zombie – a survival story mode for four players in co-op.

Hand of Fate 2

The second entry brings many more cards, enemies and special situations.

Sonic Forces

Developer: Sonic Team | Publisher: SEGA | Genre: platformer

Sonic Forces is to prove there is still a chance for the success of 3D game with the blue hedgehog. Get ready for time races, collecting gold rings and fighting bosses. As a bonus, the makers prepared 2D sequences and a co-op mode. And if you have had enough of the regular cast, there will be a hero creator.

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood

Developer: Flashbulb Games | Publisher: Wired Productions | Genre: platformer

Spiritual successor of Max & The Magic Marker from PS3 – a colorful platformer with a magic marker. It serves an important purpose – the player can use it to change elements of levels. Fortunately, the new game doesn’t look like something made in a cheap animation program and offers fairy-tale-like 2,5D graphics, different locations and many fantastic creatures. The title is available on PC for a couple of years and it got quite a few positive reviews.

 

Need for Speed Payback

Developer: Ghost Games | Publisher: Electronic Arts | Genre: racing game

The new Need for Speed title looks like another Fast and Furious movie with all this action-packed shots we saw in trailers.

Farming Simulator 17 Platinum Edition

Developer: Giants Software | Publisher: Focus Home Interactive | Genre: simulation

An upgraded version of the farming simulator from last year. As you can expect, the core gameplay is focused on plowing the field, planting seeds and harvesting crops (and breeding livestock!), just to make enough money to expand our farming “kingdom”. Platinum Edition adds new plants and animals from the South America, and among the many new machines we’ll find the one used for harvesting sugar canes.

 

L.A. Noire

Developer: Rockstar Games | Publisher: Rockstar Games | Genre: action, adventure, open world

A remastered Rockstar Games’ thriller set in Los Angeles in the 40s. Detective Cole Phelps conducts a variety of investigations, but instead of GTA-like action, the game puts emphasis on collecting the evidence and interrogating suspects (which comes with a deep mimic mechanic). All this with jazz soundtrack and noir movie’s atmosphere. The remaster will take the graphics up a notch and include every additional case (and skin for Phelps) we got in the past as a DLC for the game.

Remastered version of a cult classic adventure game from 1999. As an elite soldier Cutter Slade we’ll get to know alien planet Adelpha.

A Japanese dungeon crawler focused on exploration, turn-based combat and a story with busty girls in a form of visual novel genre. As Demon Gazer, we’ll save the world enslaved by a powerful mage, and we’ll do this with a help of demonic foes turned allies. Of course it’s not Japanese enough if we can’t flirt and date with those underlings.

 

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2

Developer: Traveller's Tales | Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive | Genre: platformer

Another attempt in recreating Marvel Comics’ world in LEGO, this time designed for the comic books fans as well as the MCU audience. Next to Thor and Hulk in armors from the Thor Ragnarok movie we’ll be getting characters like Gwenpool or Spider-Man 2099, and among new mechanics there will be teleportation and time travelling. Beside that, the usual stuff – easy environmental puzzles and the world created entirely from LEGO blocks that we destroy alone or with a friend in co-op.

 

Star Wars Battlefront 2

Developer: DICE | Publisher: Electronic Arts | Genre: FPS, TPS

The second attempt by DICE to revive the Battlefront series. Once again we’ll try our best in online FPS set in Star Wars universe and just like any sequel goes – it will be bigger, better and more badass.

As you can expect from a Japanese game, there are lots of young girls with big breasts.

 

November 21st

Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV

Developer: Square Enix | Publisher: Square Enix | Genre: arcade

A VR adventure in the world of Final Fantasy XV. With our headset on we’ll be able to experience… well, it was going to be something big, but we end up getting a fishing simulator with Noctis as a main hero. An extreme simulator! Okay, let’s not pretend we wanted this…

Hidden Agenda

Developer: Supermassive Games | Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment | Genre: party game

Another, after That’s You!, party title from PlayLink initiative, so it’s a multiplayer game and it uses smartphones with special app as controllers. What we have here is a crime story from the developer of Until Dawn, where players vote for characters’ decisions and complete Quick Time Events. Our not-that-limited influence can lead to many endings, including a one with no one left alive, but stay vigilant as some players know something more that the rest and can have Hidden Agenda.

 

Knowledge is Power

Developer: Wish Studios | Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment | Genre: party game

Quiz game like Buzz series, although with addition of minigames played with our smartphones as it uses the Playlink app (That’s You!). That means you don’t need more than one DualShock 4 or any other expensive controllers to play it with many people in local multiplayer. The main goal is to reach the peak of Knowledge Pyramid. Not only the correct quiz answers count, but also wins in minigames between questions.

A spooky VR story from Supermassive Game, where we’ll take on the role of Blackwood Sanatorium patient with amnesia. Along with the drugs, our perception will play tricks on us. The asylum also has its own dark secrets and the developer said it’s set “60 years before Until Dawn”.

 

November 28th

Black Mirror

Developer: KING Art Games | Publisher: THQ Nordic | Genre: horror, adventure

No, it’s not a game based on Nextflix’ show. It’s a remaster of old point ‘n’ click adventure game, which tells story about David Gordon. He comes back to his ancestral home after his father’s death just to experience another horror. This psychological thriller should win our hearts with a heavy atmosphere and disturbing scenes. The biggest change, comparing to the original, is new graphics and a completely new mechanic – interaction our hero can start with encountered spirits.
