November PC releases worth checking out
Crikey, it's nearly November already - where did the Summer go?!
We're moving into dark nights and (soon-to-be) festive season, which usually sees a number of awesome games arrive on Steam PC and console ahead of the big Christmas push. It's easy to lose track of releases, so we thought that we'd put together a list of the top games arriving on the Fanatical Store next month - giving you enough time to find the right games for you, and to benefit from some tasty pre-order bonuses!
11-11: Memories Retold
Developed by the multiple award-winning Aardman Animations (Wallace and Gromit, Early Man) 11-11: Memories Retold takes players on an emotional, picturesque journey through the eyes of two people during the First World War. On November 11th 1916, a young photographer leaves Canada to join the western front in Europe - the same day, a German technician is told that his son is missing in action.
Both want to preserve their humanity and come back alive to their loved ones. Live a moving story from two sides of a complex historical event that will confront you with the realities of war at the front and the rear but, most importantly, what men are really made of.

Prepare to take on the role as Agent 47 as he returns in stealth action HITMAN 2. Players will experience the ultimate spy thriller story, where your mission is to eliminate the elusive Shadow Client and unravel his militia. Visiting exotic sandbox locations, you'll be tasked with taking down targets while attempting to escape without being caught by guards, surveillance and witnesses.
Expanding on its predecessor and other games in the longstanding franchise, HITMAN 2 features new and exciting online multiplayer modes. Sniper Assassin, which is available to play before launch if gamers pre-purchase, tasks players with eliminating targets using a sniper rifle within a set time limit - while Ghost Mode is a competitive 1v1 event where two players attempt to assassinate the same targets in a single level.

From the creative minds behind the acclaimed Ultima Underworld series, action adventure RPG Underworld Ascendant evolves the series’ signature player-authored gameplay in new ways, bringing the ‘immersive sim’ genre forward in a breathtaking fantasy realm, rife with danger and full of intrigue. Players will enter a fully-realized dungeon realm and encounter fantastic creatures such as the Lizard Men, opportunistic Outcasts, and fearsome Mind Cripplers – all with unique abilities that can be used to your advantage.
The game combines intense combat with powerful magic casting to defeat foes, as well as elements of stealth and subterfuge to avoid enemies and obstacles altogether.

Farming Simulator 19
The best-selling franchise is back, and this time, it's had a complete overhaul of the graphics engine - offering the most striking and immersive visuals and effects. Farming Simulator 19 lets players take control of vehicles and machines faithfully recreated from all the leading brands in the industry, including (for the first time) John Deere, the largest agriculture machinery company in the world - as well as Case IH, New Holland, Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson, Valtra, Krone, Deutz-Fahr and many more.
Tend to your livestock of pigs, cows, sheep, chickens and (again, for the first time) horses. Gamers can also ride on horseback to explore the vast areas offered in huge open worlds loaded with farming activities.

Hellish creatures need a good seeing to in the hack n’ slash action-adventure Darksiders III. The long-anticipated third chapter in the critically-acclaimed Darksiders franchise sends players into the dark and dangerous lands of an apocalyptic Earth. Take on the role of FURY – the most unpredictable and enigmatic of the Four Horsemen – in her quest to hunt down and dispose of the Seven Deadly Sins, and bring balance to the world.
The feisty mage can use a combination of her spiky whip and magical powers to restore the balance between good and evil on Earth, so players can expect to be slicing mystical enemies to pieces to collect experience points, as well as swinging across gaping canyons to avoid a lava bath. Darksiders III also features a range of challenging puzzles to complete, such as feeding bomb bugs to fuel their explosive trait, which will grant players passage through fiery webs.
