Welcome back to our monthly Save the Date segment! Sometimes, there are just too many games out there in the world for you to remember, let alone their release dates. Well, that’s where I come in. Looking for something new to pick up in November? You’re in luck then, because this might be the biggest month in gaming for quite a while!
Planet Zoo is essentially a spiritual successor to Zoo Tycoon, with gameplay similar to Frontier Developments’ other game - Planet Coaster. In this, you can build a zoo with more than 50 animals, which all have AI that allows them to behave just like real animals.
Care must be taken to ensure each species’ requirements and needs are met. The game also has a story mode! So essentially, you build zoos. If you’re not sold yet, you can also just build a zoo and delete all the fences. Boom, it’s a Jurassic Park game now!
One of the greatest games of the PlayStation 4’s console generation is finally arriving on PC. You play as Arthur Morgan, a member of the Van Der Linde gang - set years before the first Red Dead Redemption. There will be gunfire, betrayals, horse-riding, alligator-fighting and plenty of crying, rest assured. Even if you’re not in it for the fantastic story or online mode - you always have those insane PC mods to look forward to!
Let’s face it, most of you already have this game marked on your calendars. For the rest: Death Stranding is Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima’s first game since his big split with Konami. Norman Reedus stars as Sam Porter, a man tasked with reconnecting a fractured America.
He does this by carrying cargo around a vast, and can I just say, gorgeous open world to make connections between people. B.T.s (Beached Things) all around the map make the journey dangerous, alongside other antagonists. This game also boasts star power, with actors like Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux, Lindsay Wagner, Troy Baker and many, many more making up its main cast. Who isn’t looking forward to this?
We’re getting another Need for Speed! This time, we’ll be racing in the open world streets of Palm City, based on Miami, Florida. Players can take part in sanctioned races in the day, and illegal street races at night to earn different kinds of rewards. Police will chase you aggressively during illegal races, and that becomes particularly important in the game’s campaign. There are 127 cars from 33 different brands - take your pick!
