The rest of the year in gaming: November

November is always a huge month when it comes to gaming, and this year is no exception. Here are a few titles to keep an eye out for this month.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
November 4
PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC

The latest installment in the long running Call of Duty franchise brings November in with a literal bang. Advanced Warfare looks like the series' freshest entry in a long time, breaking up well-trodden gameplay with more than a few sci-fi elements and Kevin Spacey. It's still Call of Duty at the end of the day, but Advanced Warfare seems to be more than just another annual rehash.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection
November 11
Xbox One

The Master Chief Collection puts Halo 1, 2, 3 and 4 in one slick AUD$80 package. If you're a Halo fan, this is pretty much a no-brainer, and it's worth a look even if you're not. Halo 2 has received a fresh coat of paint, and while it doesn't quite look next-generation, could almost be worth the price of admission alone. Master Chief Collection will also give buyers access to the Halo 5 multiplayer beta when it becomes available in December.

Assassin's Creed Unity
November 13
Xbox One, PlayStation, Windows

Unity takes the Assassin's Creed franchise to Paris during the French revolution. While the game seems to follow the typical Assassin's Creed formula, it will introduce co-operative multiplayer – a feature that could introduce some new life into the series.

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor
November 13
Windows, Mac

Warlords of Draenor is World of Warcraft's fifth expansion, and will hit as the game celebrates its 10th anniversary. The expansion aims to refine the "easy to learn, hard to master" formula that's made World of Warcraft so successful, and make it a better game for everyone, whether they're a casual or hardcore player. Our resident World of Warcraft expert certainly thinks Warlords of Draenor will be a great reason to get hooked again!

Grand Theft Auto V
November 18
PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Almost exactly a year after Grand Theft Auto V was released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, RockStar are re-releasing it for next-generation consoles. While this version is almost identical to last year's version in terms of gameplay, the remastered graphics look stunning. PC gamers don't have to wait much longer either, Grand Theft Auto 5 will be coming to Windows in January.

Dragon Age: Inquisition
November 20
PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC

Only one to buy one game this summer? Bioware has promised that Dragon Age: Inquisition will have over 200 hours of roleplaying action. I'm a little on the fence about this one, considering Dragon Age II was a little disappointing, Bioware has said they're hoping to blend what worked about the past two titles, while cutting the bad. Fingers crossed!

Super Smash Bros for Wii U
November 29
Wii U

Super Smash Bros will be a must-buy for every Wii U owner. I've already sunk countless hours into the 3DS version, and imagine that Nintendo's all-star brawler will be even better on the Wii U. On top of being the first high-definition entry in the series, Smash Bros for Wii U has promising new additions such as an eight-player mode.
