The Best Video Game Releases - November 2020
We know there's but one game that should be in this article, but unfortunately, it's not. There is a fine collection of releases anyway, though, and there's plenty of games to keep us occupied in November.
Do you know that November will have as many as thirty days? The release schedule of all publishers will become increasingly cramped, so there's no way to list all the games that will come out this month in a relatively short piece like this one. Therefore, we chose nine games, which we consider the most significant. Unfortunately, we didn't include the new expansion to The Sims, but the presence of at least one game is obvious to everyone – I even get the impression that November 10 will be a Viking holiday. Because everyone's waiting for Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, right? (This spot was originally reserved for another game, but for reasons all too obvious to discuss, it wasn't included). But that wasn't the only big game to release in November, and there's plenty interesting items on this list anyway.
Release date: November 6, 2020
- Genre: Car rally
- Platforms: PC, PS4, XOne, PS5, XSX
- Estimated price: $59.99
What is DIRT 5?
The fifth entry in the series of car racing games, focused on rally. DIRT are really hyped for DIRT 5, developed by Codemasters Software. The studio is famous for the quality of their racing games, which they've been developing for years, and this game will certainly not bring unpleasant surprises.
What's new in DIRT 5?
DIRT 5 will cater to both single players and those who prefer multiplayer competition. The creators promise a story campaign, in which players will be able to make some decisions to influence the events. There will also be an online mode for twelve people, where you'll be able to compete with each other, but also perform different tasks. As for the significant novelties, DIRT 5 will introduce a car livery editor. When it comes to driving, the production will again focus on realism, so get ready for interesting experiences if your driving style isn't extremely cautious.
- More about DIRT 5.
DIRT 5 grows into a strong contender for the throne of racing games this year... although not necessarily because it promises to be so good. Things would have been a lot different if Project CARS 3 and RIDE 4 hadn't failed. However, this does not mean that DIRT 5 looks bad. Codemasters did the right thing, decisively separating this game from DIRT Rally (unlike DIRT 4). This means we're in for a proper follow-up to DIRT 2: beautiful sights, good music, and, one of the most interesting novelties, with great voice actors (including Troy Baker and Nolan North).
I only hope the physics and the driving model are at least a little more demanding. Nevertheless, the throne of racing games probably won't fall to DIRT 5. Even if the surprisingly good WRC 9 doesn't claim it (and it would be a very interesting, even symbolic event), it will probably be taken by the mesmerizing Art of Rally... Well, unless the prizes are awarded by complete nerds and they choose F1 2020.
