Games of November 2019

Red Dead Redemption 2

November 5 | Rockstar | Link | Open world adventure

Rockstar's beloved cowboy walking simulator is finally making its way to the PC, just in time for the holidays. For the first month, the PC version will only be available on Rockstar's own launcher. This new version comes with some extra guns, new side missions, and other goodies. 

Planet Zoo

November 5 | Frontier | Link | Park Sim
The makers of Planet Coaster and Jurassic World Evolution take things back a notch with some simple critter corralling. We dug it so much we made it the cover of our June issue. Take a gander at what we had to say.

Stoneshard 

November 7 | Ink Stains Games | Link | RPG
Stoneshard wants to make you suffer. A turn-based roguelike RPG, it promises to starve you, shock you—all kinds of fun stuff. But when you’re not suffering, you’ll be able to plunder caves, rescue villages and even build up your own company of mercenaries. There’s a management side to the game, then, as you try to keep everyone happy---if you don’t, they might betray you. You can play the prologue now.

Need for Speed Heat

November 8 | Ghost Games | Link | Racing

The next Need for Speed has cars, speed, cops, and palm trees. The Miami-adjacent setting is what seems to set Heat apart the most this time around. There also seems to be a larger emphasis on cop chases and car upgrades.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

November 15 | Respawn Entertainment | Link | TBA
It took a while, but we finally have some hard details on Respawn's Star Wars game. Respawn debuted a story trailer at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, and while it doesn't showcase any gameplay (kind of a bummer), we do get a great look at protagonist Cal and his harrowing journey on the run from an Imperial Inquisitor. Respawn says they're focusing on "thoughtful combat" with lightsabers and force powers, so yep, definitely a Jedi game. Read everything else we know, and maybe we'll see more at E3.

Shenmue 3

November 19 | Ys Net | Link | Action adventure
The sequel few thought would ever happen, Shenmue 3 features the return of martial arts everyman Ryo Hazuki as he closes in on the mystery of who killed his father. Shenmue 3 promises similar gameplay to previous entries, letting players combat enemies hand-to-hand, explore a living, populated world, and upgrade abilities. If you're not familiar with the epic saga, Shenmue 1 and 2 remasters came out recently.

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts

November 22 | CI Games | Link | Stealth Shooter
It always feels like a new Sniper Ghost Warrior game is on the way. CI Games has had issues with overambition before, but they’ve promised a more replayable, less glitchy experience, and no open world.

Lost Ember

November 22 | Mooneye Studios | Link | Adventure

Mooneye Studios' lovely-looking game about exploring the through the eyes of animals in a world after humans has a new release date. You'll be able to possess any animal you come across to explore on land, sea, and air and uncover the lost Yanrana culture. After originally being planned for earlier in 2019, Lost Ember will now arrive on November 22nd according to its new date announcement trailer. 

The biggest games still coming in 2019

Halo Master Chief Collection

TBA | 343 Industries | Link | Shooter
Despite a disastrous launch, the Master Chief Collection slowly became a definitive gathering of Halo games, made playable on newer hardware. And it's finally coming to PC. 343 Industries says it’s all coming in stages, with Reach, then Halo 1, and chronologically on from there with community input being taken into consideration.

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries

December 10 | Piranha Games | Link | Action
If you, like us, have been waiting 17 years for a new singleplayer MechWarrior campaign, this will be a huge deal in 2019. MechWarrior 5 will let you explore and liberate apparently hundreds of planets from enemy strongholds, fully customising your mech along the way. 

Hollow Knight: Silksong

TBA | Team Cherry | Link | Metroidvania
What started as DLC for Hollow Knight, starring Hornet as a playable character, apparently could not be contained. It's become a full game, a sequel to Hollow Knight, with a new setting, 150+ new enemies, a quest system, and doubtless much more. Whereas Hollow Knight was about descending deeper into the depths of Hallownest, this game will see Hornet climbing through a new kingdom to reach a peak. Team Cherry haven't mentioned a release date, but seem to be well into the game from what they've shown.
