I'm starting to measure the passage of time in terms of how long I've been dawdling in Baldur's Gate 3's second act—this will surely be the month I finally make a decision about Shadowheart's fate and see my way to the titular city, because with Alan Wake 2 and Lords of the Fallen out last month, I've already fallen well behind on the things I planned to play.
This landmark year for big game releases does finally quiet down a little in November, but no month is totally empty of excitement these days, and November has already spawned a few strong recommendations from us—find them all in the top half of the release calendar below.
November's big PC release dates
The Invincible | November 6
Another early November game we've reviewed positively, The Invincible is a sci-fi novel adaptation that we called "a striking and imaginative retelling of a vintage work that should once again leave us to consider the goals of technology, and the limits of our knowledge."
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 | November 10
It makes perfect sense: This is Modern Warfare 3 (2023), it features remade maps from Modern Warfare 2 (2009), all your guns from Modern Warfare 2 (2022) carry over, and in your Steam library it'll just be called "Call of Duty." Problem?
Persona 5 Tactica | November 10
A grid-based spin-off of the beloved RPG series that sees the Phantom Thieves "wander into a bizarre realm where its citizens are living under tyrannical oppression."
