We’ve put together this list of new games for 2020 and beyond, so you can keep track of all the exciting updates you want to add to your wish list. Owing in no small part to the launch of the Xbox Series X and PS5, the list of great games continues to expand, with so many new Xbox Series X games and upcoming PS5 games to look forward to. November 2020 will kick off the next generation of gaming consoles, with the Xbox Series X launching on November 10 and Sony’s PlayStation 5 hitting store shelves on November 12. Every system brings with it a number of releases as is typical for new consoles. Many of these titles are cross-generational games, but some are next-gen exclusives. And there are also some major upgrades to cross-generation titles that support higher resolution and frame rates.
But things sure don’t slow down for other consoles either, with lots of fun games set to arrive on the Nintendo Switch and PC. There’s actually something for everybody here, from major AAA titles to fascinating indies
1. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Ubisoft’s historic fantasy series returns, leading us back to the Viking conquest of the British Isles. In this current Assassin’s Creed title, Eivor — a raider — is drawn into an ancient dispute between the Templar Order and the Brotherhood of Assassins. Story missions take you through an open-world setting where you have to battle, sneak, and assassinate targets, but there are also various side missions to perform, packed with fresh gear and weapons. It’s time to take a leap of faith in the Viking age with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Ubisoft’s history-slash-mythology series has been on the rise since it switched to RPG and myth in Origins, and now we’re seeing their take on Norse culture with a dive into the world of Vikings. As a next-gen game, it’s going to be a pleasure to take monsters and men down as one of the most famous warriors in history. Console players are able to switch to the next-gen Series X and PS5 free of charge. With a world that’s larger and more stunning than ever before, it’s coming out on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on November 10, and PS5 on November 12.
2. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Insomniac is taking another web-slinging experience to the end of the year, and Miles Morales will be featuring as Spider-Man. Set to come to the PS5, Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a stand-alone game where we’ll watch the tale of Miles as he masters his new spidey-senses. Set to extend and improve on the 2018 PS4 debut, this latest Spider-Man game is said to take full advantage of the PS5’s SSD, making it almost instantaneous to fly around New York City. Recently moved to New York, the fresh-faced Miles Morales is adapting to the new environment and following in the footsteps of Peter Parker, his wall-crowded mentor. But as a war of power breaks out in the snowy streets of his city, the aspiring hero learns that with great power, there must also come great responsibility. Miles must take the mantle of Spider-Man and own it to save all of New York. Miles is also packed with a diverse range of talents, abilities, and devices to set him apart from Peter Parker and to deliver a distinct experience to that of the popular 2018 Marvel’s Spider-Man game.
3. Yakuza: Like a Dragon
This latest iteration in the Yakuza series gives us a new protagonist to discover — unless you know Japanese and play Yakuza Online — named Ichiban Kasuga. Using nothing but his brute force, Ichiban would have to find a way out of the mafia’s path. Or prove to them that he isn’t one to be played with! Featuring a lot of strange side-quests, epic turn-based encounters, and a beautiful portrayal of Japanese nights, Yakuza: The Dragon is the perfect mix of a traditional Yakuza game with hundreds of JRPG Easter eggs and comparisons. If you’re either watching this saga or classic role-playing games. The series isn’t only going to PlayStation 5, but it’s often delivered to offer us a beautiful and always amusing tour of Japan — this time filled with all the JRPG comparisons they might put together. It’s going out on November 10th on Xbox Series X, and November 13th on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
4. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
A new year, a new title Call of Duty. This year, with the advent of the younger millennium, Activision has made it their task to do things a little differently. With that, they’re providing us with a few improvements, as well as a whole new game mode in Mixed Arms mode. Black Ops Cold War would bring viewers to the depths of the turbulent strategic struggle of the early 1980s in the Cold War. Nothing is as it appears in the gripping single-player campaign, where players can come face-to-face with historical figures and harsh realities as they battle across the globe through iconic locations like east berlin, KGB Headquarters, and more. Go to their 12v12 arena, which is bigger than ever before, packed with new arms and cars to play in. Impressions haven’t been fantastic so far, but more previews are coming for the Open Beta this October. It will be publicly released on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Series X, and PS5 on November 13.

Bungie shows continuing love for their multiplayer FPS, and it’s just getting better and better. This November, we’re going to plunge into the gloom on the icy field of the moon of Jupiter, Europa. As a big expansion, players will be introduced to a brand-new power source, Gloom, as well as some new features scattered around the main game. There are many forgotten secrets about the European border from the past, including Stasis’s dark influence. This new strength has to be used by the enigmatic Exo Stranger until Aramis, the cell of doorkeeper, gives it to her Fallen powers. Grow your arsenal and go beyond the light, Master Stasis. Beyond Light is taking the game into the beginning of a new age, with new missions, maps, places, and so much more. Getting out on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Series X on November 10.
7. Demon’s Souls
There were Demon Souls before Dark Souls punished a century of players. Now, this new remake restored from the ground up has brought the horrors of the Boletaria fog-load to the owners of the PlayStation 5. A remake of the classic PlayStation, Demon’s Souls, comes from the Japan Studio and Bluepoint Games. In addition to shadow effects and ray tracing, players can choose between two separate graphics modes: the fidelity mode, the frame rate mode. Newcomers and those facing their trials will probably explore familiar darkness but this time in incredible visual quality and next-generation results. There are strange characters in a world where death is not the end; battling capabilities to defeat unspeakable demons, overcoming them in a world in which death is not the end.
The new IP of Gearbox has generated a lot of publicity between its initial announcement trailer and its latest fighting gameplay. Although it looks like the first MMO mobile mill run, we finally watch their high-fantasy world, with better music and astonishing videos. Hack and shoot using your arsenal of weapons with powerful force and watch your screen erupt with HD color sparks. As a looter slashing machine, this November 12th, it will hopefully offer the basic elements of its genre. Save Aperion. Save Aperion.

10. NEKOPARA Vol. 4
The father of Kashou appears to disagree, considering the success of “La Soleil,” with it. Kashou travels to France to seek guidance from the teacher who taught him his art, determined to get his dad to approve him. The next volume of the NEKOPARA series will be followed by a new chapter! 2020 was a tough year so all of us need a happy place to forget all else and enjoy life with a pure, innocent spirit. We look forward to Nekopara Vol for that reason. 4, one of the most popular visual novel franchises, the new entry. That’s right! That’s right! Chocola, Vanilla, and the other girls are back, and the protagonist’s father seems to be demonstrating once and for all how important the Patisserie La Soleil is to us. Are you ready to go to France for a new girl from Neko?!
11. The Falconeer
This is yet another exclusive Microsoft released in November, revealed last year’s X019 case. Take the skies behind the huge falcons, ride competently and intelligently to kill your enemies. Tomass Salas, completely created by Skyrim modder, shares a connection with Bethesda as it allows us, in their universe known as the Great ursee, to choose between five combating factions. Generations of toxic choices and treason churn intensely as factions clash. Get the Falconeer and sky on a devastatingly powerful Warbird. Unveil secrets lost on the sea when entering or confronting numerous groups and clans spread around The Grand Ursee.

Decide where your allegiance is, and pave your own way in an open tale. On November 10th, it will be released on PC, Xbox One and Series X.
Speaking of multiplayer interactions, it’s time to let our inner DJs build the greatest bop ever and get the party underway! From the team that gave us Dance Core Rock Band, Fuser is a game about combining ultra-popular songs in real-time, expanding what they did with DropMix (another Harmonix game) and making it more available to the general public, since a rhythm video game would still be more popular than a rhythm-based board game. It doesn’t matter if you’re bad about music, Fuser makes it very easy to mix hit tracks, and you’ll certainly love jamming your own mashups if they’re focused on actual songs instead of obscure, loyal-free ones. Not everyone’s going to be crazy about this one, though, but this is a niche game that we’re sure to enjoy.
13. Tetris Effect: Connected
Tetris Effect became popular among fans of the blocky arcade game as it enriched the atmosphere with a lot of audio-visual bells and whistles. Microsoft is exploiting old-age nostalgia with this timed exclusive that adds to the thrill of multiplayer gaming. Play with mates in a co-op or match space wit in a competitive game, all of which can be played locally or online. Catch it on the Xbox Game Pass, or watch more Series X Visual Trips with Smart Distribution assistance. Tetris Effect is a special, unprecedented, and breathtakingly wonderful reinvention of one of the famous jigsaw puzzle games of all time, from people who brought you the award-winning Rez Infinite and mythical puzzle game Lumine. Tetris Effect is like you never saw, heard or felt it before. Music, backgrounds, sounds, special effects — all of it up to the Tetris parts, pulse, dance, shimmer, and blast, in perfect harmony, to make each of the 30 + stages and 10 + modes of the game something you want to live time and again. Tetris Effect: Linked is the perfect excuse to play Tetris again … is a test for your mind and a feast for all your senses … and again, again and again, and again and again, and again and again and again and again and again and again and again, and again and again, and … The game uses smart distribution to make both the title Xbox One and the title Xbox Series X
14. Sackboy: A Big Adventure
Exclusively on this list time for first PlayStation! Sackboy’s back in motion, but his own adventure is now, rather than a LittleBigPlanet game. Apparently, a Major one! Yeah, but Sackboy is not all by itself so that with some friends we will be able to explore these fantastic worlds. One of the reasons why this game is so excited is that most platformers are nowadays one-player attempts with some competitive multi-player modes if we’re fortunate enough. However, A Major Adventure promises a fantastic couch co-op experience, and we look forward to seeing where that takes us with such a charming character.
15. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been 10/10 for many, but it still remains an unfinished game in terms of storytelling. In 2019, Nintendo announced the work is underway, but we will have to work on another Game of Hyrule Warriors for the time being. Calamity is a backlash that places us on an abundance of monsters threatening Hyrule’s castle, so Link and friends must swing their swords to try to stop the catastrophe. Musoo’s playgrounds are always fun, and this seems to be no exception! If you are on the side of the bokoblins,
