Next week we have a few new “AAA” releases on Xbox One, but there are still a few surprises here and there. Notably, Hitman 2 is finally launching on the console, and Fallout 76 offers an interesting take on the popular series. With that in mind, here are all the biggest games launching next week, between November 12 and November 16, 2018.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy
Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a remake of the Spyro games we all loved growing up. It features unbelievable visuals and utilizes Unreal Engine 4 to achieve a stellar look. The game was supposed to launch on September 21, but was delayed until this month to polish up performance.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy should launch on November 13, priced at $39.99. The game features Xbox One X enhancements.
Fallout 76 is essentially Fallout 4 multiplayer. If you don’t like playing with other people, you can also experience the title on your own. However, it’s much easier if you have help, especially when it comes to gathering resources and building complex structures. It’s unclear how this single-player option works because, supposedly, “every other character you encounter is a real player.”
Fallout 76 should launch on November 14, starting at $59.99. The game features Xbox One X enhancements.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider: The Forge
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the conclusion to Lara Croft’s origin story. Lara must master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. As she races to save the world from a Mayan apocalypse, Lara will ultimately be forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be. The game has a lot of tombs and other side objectives, but it’s about to get a lot more content very soon. Recently, developer Eidos Montreal and publisher Square Enix announced “The Forge” expansion. The Forge will be available as a free download to all season pass holders, and sold separately. The Forge contains the first of seven new adventures for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. It also brings with it a challenge tomb which is playable in co-op.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider: The Forge should launch on November 13, priced at $4.99 USD. The game features 4K 30 FPS and 1080p 60 FPS modes on Xbox One X.
Aces of the Luftwaffe: The Nebelgeschwader
Aces of the Luftwaffe: The Nebelgeschwader is an add-on for Aces of the Luftwaffe: Squadron, but features exactly the same volume of content as the base game. There are 25 new levels, six epic new bosses, four different pilots, and a local co-op mode for up to four players.
Aces of the Luftwaffe: The Nebelgeschwader should launch on November 13.
Agent 47 embarks on a mission to hunt the elusive Shadow Client and unravel his militia once and for all. However, when he learns the hidden truth about his past, nothing will ever be the same. The game also introduces new ways to play with the Sniper Assassin mode, a standalone feature that brings a co-op experience to the Hitman series. It’s available right now if you’ve preordered the game.
Hitman 2 should launch on November 13, starting at $59.99. The game runs at native 4K resolution on Xbox One X and features a 60 FPS mode. Hitman 2: Gold Edition is out now on all platforms.
Battlefield V: Deluxe Edition
Battlefield V is an upcoming first-person shooter set in World War II. The game features single-player campaign scenarios similar to Battlefield 1. For example, one of the main missions focuses on a female solider, her history, and her family. The developer said that Battlefield V tells the “untold stories of World War II”, but it’s unclear if they’re works of fiction or interactive reenactments.
Battlefield V: Deluxe Edition should launch on November 15, priced at $79.99. The game features Xbox One X enhancements and achieves 60 FPS on all platforms. EA Access members receive an additional discount and can play the trial right now. Other versions of Battlefield V should launch on November 20.
Project Highrise: Architect’s Edition
According to Kalypso Media, Project Highrise is the ultimate skyscraper simulator on PC. However, Project Highrise: Architect’s Edition is the console port. Your job as the architect and builder is to erect world-famous skyscrapers that will be the envy of the entire city. Unfortunately, a skyscraper is more than just steel and glass. It’s an intricate ecosystem, full of people that live and work in the building. You have to manage all of this too.
Project Highrise: Architect’s Edition should launch on November 13, priced at $39.99. Those who digitally preorder the game can purchase it for $35.99.
Other experiences like The Long Journey Home and Youtubers Life: OMG Edition should also release next week.
These are the biggest games launching soon, and many of them seem like absolutely thrilling experiences. Be sure to check out Fallout 76 and Spyro Reignited Trilogy because they appear to be the most unique games out of the lot. Which titles are you interested in? Let us know.
