The biggest week of November, by far, has arrived. Will you be hunting eggs, Pokemon, or scrap in the wasteland? Welcome to This Week In Games.
Worth noting some releases are spread out a little this week. If you didn’t buy a deluxe/special edition, HITMAN 2 launches this week. Similarly, you can get Battlefield 5 this week if you want to spend extra – but if you want the regular version, that drops next week.
Here’s what you can look forward to this week:
- Fallout 76 (PC, PS4, XBO)
- Pokemon Let’s Go: Pikachu & Eevee (Switch)
- Spyro Reignited Trilogy (PS4, XBO)
- HITMAN 2 (PC, PS4, XBO)
- Chimparty (PS4)
- The Golf Club 2019 (PS4, XBO)
- Civilization VI (Switch)

Let’s kick off things this week with a trailer for an Aussie game, Storm Boy, which is set on the South Australian coastline. (We’ll see more of this next week when it launches more broadly.) There’s also some uncommentated HITMAN 2 gameplay, and an idea of what to expect from this week’s Warhammer 40,000 game.
Bad North is really good, and should be especially so on PC if you’re after a new RTS. I wholly expect Hellgate London to be a total trashfire, but fortunately with Spyro, Pokemon and HITMAN 2 available there’s plenty to get stuck into.
As for Fallout 76? Well, that’s going to be interesting one way or another. Are you going to take the plunge?
