Dishonored 2, (November 11th) a sequel to the critically acclaimed first release back in 2012 drops the old hero Corvo along with the new female playable character Emily in a whole new city, this time loosely modeled after Spain and the south of France.
Watch Dogs 2, (November 15th). The original had soo much promise but fell short in a lot of ways, with middling reviews across the board. Lets hope Ubisoft can build upon what made the original unique while ironing out the bugs and addressing criticisms of the first game at the same time.
