Upcoming PC Releases (November 2020)
The final quarter of 2020 is upon us, and while the year itself was not kind to anyone, including the large development studios, there have been some good games released in the months prior, but those have been far and between. Lucky for us, there are still a few gems approaching their release dates, so let’s take a look at a few scheduled to release in November.
Destiny 2 Beyond Light DLC (10/11/20)
When it comes to the new content the first major part of it is the new map called Europa and it will feature five main areas with various underground locations such as factories, cities, etc. so it will definitely be one of the larger maps full of things to do and places to explore.
Alongside the new map, players will be getting a new Stasis subclass which will be available to Warlocks, Hunters, and Titans making them Shadebinders, Revenants, and Behemoths. These subclasses will also receive many new abilities, which will mostly evolve around ice and freezing and shattering your opponents.
Other various content such as a new raid, new weapons, and armor will be included with the game as well as an option to separately purchase a new season pass.
Assassins Creed Valhalla (17/11/20)
Assassins Creed Valhalla is the twelfth major installment in the very popular Assassins Creed franchise that has been first introduced way back in 2007.
Set in rural England, where resources are scarce and poverty and constant conflicts are the standards for the large majority of the population, we as the players will be taking control of a Nord called Eivor and will be tasked with ensuring the survival and prosperity of his fellowship of Vikings. For the first time in the franchise, players will be able to choose between a male and female Eivor as well as customize their character’s appearance through tattoos, hairstyles, and war paint.
Settlements will be a huge part of Assassins Creed Valhalla as it will serve as a main base of operations as well as the main quest hub. Players will be able to construct various buildings and organize raids on enemy settlements in order to gain more resources to spend on building and crafting. Naval combat has also been improved significantly compared to Valhalla’s predecessors and while there will still be plenty of silent assassinations to complete, the game will also feature large-scale battles between two opposing forces.
An interesting addition to the game is what we can call a diplomacy system, in which the players will have an option of sorting conflicts between factions through marriage and diplomacy. By choosing how you handle these types of events, you will likely affect the outcome of your story, so be sure to choose wisely.
The combat system has also gone through an overhaul and while it appears to be somewhat slower than in the previous games which are not strange since we are now equipped with an arsenal of larger shields and weapons. However, thanks to the addition of the RPG elements, players will be able to pursue various upgrades in one of the three combat branches which should compensate for this.
Cyberpunk 2077 (19/11/20)
Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world first-person RPG that was developed and published by CD Projekt Red and is one of the most anticipated games in at least a decade.
Cyberpunk 2077 is set in a fictional town Night City located somewhere on the coast of Northern California between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Various corporations have been in control of the city for quite some time now, and it has become a place where law and order are absent and crime, violence, and gang wars are at an all-time high. Robotics has come to play a crucial role in normal everyday life and everything from city maintenance to transportation to waste disposal relies on robotics.
Players will get to experience every corner of Night City through the eyes of our protagonist nicknamed V whom we will be able to fully customize, including appearance, voice, physical features as well as the cybernetic enhancements and other modifications.
While we don’t know much about the storyline yet, we as the protagonist will come across numerous factions which whom we will be able to closely work with, or not, depending on our choices, and by doing so we will be influencing the development and the outcome of the story.
When it comes to gameplay, players will be able to get their hands on many different kinds of weapons, all with unique functions that are further modifiable. Guns that can pierce through solid concrete or have their bullets ricochet from any surface are to name a few. Additionally, players will be able to choose from a large pool of cybernetic modifications, from hidden blades to whips, rocket launchers, and even body armor.
Aside from these elements, players will also be able to modify various stats, skill trees, attributes in order to create a playstyle that perfectly suits them.
