Normally, New Releases highlights five big games in every episode, but that would be a real disservice this time, considering the imminent launches of the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. The next generation of consoles kicks off with heavy hitters like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Dirt 5, Bugsnax, Demon’s Souls, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Godfall. Just after the launches comes Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. And since we can’t leave Nintendo out, this episode also takes a look at Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla — November 10 (PS4, Xbox One, Series X/S, PC, Stadia) / November 12 (PS5)
Available on: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X/S, PC, Stadia
The next entry in the Assassin’s Creed saga is set in the Viking era. As tribe leader Eivor, you’ll lead your people in raids across the isle of Great Britain. You’ll pillage villages, build your own encampment, and even dip back into social stealth. Expect more info on the mysterious Hidden Ones too.
