Next week is going to go down in gaming history. 5 games from some of the biggest gaming franchises are going to be released and everyone will finally be able to get their hands on them. Will these games be good or will they be awful? Only time will tell. Here are the biggest games coming out for the week of November 12th, 2018.
Hitman 2 – November 13th
After IO Interactive and Square Enix separated there was a lot of nervous whispers around the Hitman franchise as to who would keep it. Luckily for us gamers, IO Interactive got to keep the rights to their franchise and are now bringing us a sequel to 2016’s episodic reboot of the series. This time around the game isn’t going to be episodic which is a good thing for anyone out there who hates waiting. It also appears the game features much larger maps than it’s predecessor which will surely lead to new fun ways to kill your targets. You can check out the most recent trailer for Hitman 2 below.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy – November 13th
Spyro was a huge part of my childhood but I never played the originals. I was way too young. I played games like A New Beginning and Eternal Night, but I do really want to see where my favorite childhood dragon came from. The game has stunning graphics and a lovely charm that really shines in it’s trailers so I’m looking forward to it. LGA will have a review in the works for this trilogy sometime after launch. You can watch the most recent trailer below.
Fallout 76 – November 14th
Fallout 76 is the first time that Bethesda has taken the franchise online. It features a huge open world that looks truly spectacular and is 4 times bigger than the world of Boston that we got in Fallout 4. As much as I want to say this game will be amazing, we really have to wait and see. The beta failed to wow me and I’m still nervous about the game’s lack of NPCs and a main character. It’s new ground for Fallout and Fallout fans alike and it’s an adventure we all have to take together with Bethesda. You can expect a review of this game to be posted on LGA too and you can check out the most recent trailer below. It’s definitely a weird one.
Battlefield V – November 15th
It was actually hard to decide which day we should go with as the release date for Battlefield V. EA and Origin Access members got to try out the game for a few hours starting November 9th, but we picked November 15th because that’s the date anyone who pre-ordered the deluxe edition of the game will be able to start playing. The game has had some ridiculous controversies over it’s inclusion of women but if you ask me, every trailer has looked amazing. The graphics are beautiful and the gameplay looks as smooth as ever. I don’t think this Battlefield game will disappoint fans. If you haven’t pre-ordered the deluxe edition then you can expect the game November 20th. You can check out the most recent trailer for the game below.
Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee – November 16th
I am so hyped for this game that it feels ridiculous. I have done nothing but complain about the fact that this game is way more casual than a main Pokemon game since it was announced and yet here I am, excited. I went an pre-ordered the Nintendo Switch bundle with Let’s Go Pikachu and it also comes with a Pokeball Plus controller. I’ll be reviewing it for LGA too if you want to hear more about it. One thing I would like to note here is that anyone who doesn’t like Nintendo’s Joy-Con controllers might not want to play this game. It doesn’t support the Nintendo Switch Pro controller. You can check out the most recent trailer for the game below.
That’s all for our list of big games coming out next week. If you think we missed something be sure to let us know in the comments down below. Also let us know which games you plan on getting and why!
