Best Xbox One Games: Top 5 Best New Games Coming Out In November 2016


Best Xbox One Games November

Xbox One owners will face some hard choices in November. It’s practically a given that they’ll plunk down money to get surefire blockbuster Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, but which of the other three awesome-looking sequels do they set aside for later? Dishonored 2, Watch Dogs 2 and Final Fantasy XV, all of which could hold your interest for months, are all jostling for gamers’ attention right out of the gates. And also lurking in the shadows is Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection.

Here’s a look at the best Xbox One games coming out in November:

5. Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection

Publisher: Ubisoft
Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Release date: November 15

There may not be a new Assassin’s Creed game this year, but there will still be plenty to keep fans busy. Not only is the movie finally hitting theaters, fans also get to revisit the high point in the series via this remastered triple-pack, which rounds up the three series entries that starred charismatic assassin Ezio. Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed Revelations are all included, along with their previously downloadable extras.

PRE-ORDER: Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection here

4. Watch Dogs 2

Publisher: Ubisoft
Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Release date: November 15

You rage against the machine as a superpowered hacker who emerges as San Francisco’s only hope to overthrow a corporation and government-backed surveillance system that’s straight out of George Orwell’s 1984. You maneuver through the open-world dystopia any way you see fit, knocking out story and side missions that grow your power and influence.

3. Final Fantasy XV

Publisher: Square Enix
Developer: Square Enix
Release date: November 29

In a game that some are hailing as the spiritual follow-up to the beloved Final Fantasy VII, you guide a gang of unlikely heroes through a universe-altering road trip that looks to play as a sort of coming-of-age story. We loved what we’ve seen from last year’s demo and the artwork, so there is good reason to believe this is the series entry that will shake off memories of disappointment from the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy.

PRE-ORDER: Final Fantasy XV here

2. Dishonored 2

Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
Developer: Arkane Studios
Release date: November 11

Feeling stabby? This cloak-and-dagger steampunk saga may be just what you need to take out your frustrations. Locked in a deadly struggle of double crosses and manipulation with sinister forces, you use superpowered stealth and attack maneuvers to slink unseen through a decayed, steampunk-influence realm, driven by an all-consuming vengeance.

PRE-ORDER: Dishonored 2 here

1. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Publisher: Activision
Developer: Infinity Ward
Release date: November 4

The setting shifts from typical near-future battles to the stars, where you lead a squadron meant to stop the solar system from falling under control of nefarious forces. A wild selection of equipment and weaponry looks to juice up the multiplayer, forcing established players to formulate new strategies to stay on top. To sweeten the deal, you also get a download of Modern Warfare Remastered.
