Historically, the month of November has been a hotbed for some of the year’s biggest games, and the upcoming batch in 2019 proves that’s still the case. Before things wind down in December, November will see the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield, Respawn Entertainment’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and Hideo Kojima’s return to gaming with Death Stranding.
In addition to the big tent-pole games of November, Rockstar will also release the greatly anticipated PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2. Announced in October, Rockstar’s open-world western will launch on the Rockstar Games Client first before shifting over to the Epic Games Store and then to Steam. Along with those games, the long-in-development Shenmue 3 will finally ship November 19 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. There’s also still a suite of indie games and AA games coming to Switch, including the next Mario & Sonic mash-up and a re-release of Layton’s Mystery Journey on the Switch.
November is shaping up to be a notable month for games. So for your convenience, we’ve collected a few highlights for November and also included the full list of releases of games coming up.
Red Dead Redemption 2 | PC | Release Date: November 5
As GameSpot’s Game of the Year for 2018, Red Dead Redemption 2 from Rockstar Games impressed us with its scope of interactions to be found in the wilderness and within the towns of Saint-Denis and Valentine. It was an immensely satisfying prequel that introduced a suite of new characters and locations, while also giving us a greater appreciation for the returning cast as they got into all sorts of drama in their younger years. The PC release of the game will no doubt be a great time to jump back into the game, just for the fact that the game now runs at an increased frame-rate and higher resolutions.

Death Stranding | PS4 | Release Date: November 8
Following the public departure of Hideo Kojima from Konami, fans have been anxious to learn more about the Metal Gear creator’s next big game. In Death Stranding, players will control Sam ‘Porter’ Bridges–portrayed by Norman Reedus–as he survives in the remains of North America following a catastrophic event that wiped out segments of the population and irreparably altered the landscape. From what we’ve heard about Death Stranding following TGS and Gamescom, it looks to be an unusual approach to open-world games that puts greater focus on making connections with the few characters that remain in the land, and with other players online. We’re excited to see how it all comes together, and it’ll no doubt be in a way that only Hideo Kojima can pull off.

Pokemon Sword and Shield | Switch | Release Date: November 15
The Pokemon series has been one of Nintendo’s most steadfast franchises that’s continued to grow in popularity every year. Set in the new Galar region–emulating the countryside of Britain–Sword and Shield, puts you in the role of a new Pokemon trainer who has to go out and catch all ’em all. However, what’s new in Sword and Shield is that environments are more open, moving away from the very linear progression of the series’ past. To take on this new approach to exploration, which can potentially lead to some unexpected fights with overpowered Pokemon, the trainers in the Galar region can trigger new evolutions for their set of Pokemon, turning tiny characters like Pikachu into giant versions of themselves.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order | PC, PS4, Xbox One | Release Date: November 11
As EA’s next big Star Wars game following 2017’s Battlefront II, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order moves away from the online multiplayer battles and dives into a narrative-driven adventure akin to God of War and the Uncharted series. Coming from Respawn Entertainment, Fallen Order also marks the Star Wars’ first metroidvania-style game, giving you greater control in where Jedi padawan Cal Kestis goes next. In addition to traveling to planets like Zepho and Kasyykk, facing off against foes in combat that controls similarly to Sekiro, you can also try to explore planets like Dathomir, which proved to be a significant challenge early on.
