November 2015 is really going to be a hot month for the video game industry. There aren’t that many new games being released but the grand majority of the ones coming out are almost all part of big popular series. Check out the best new games coming out this month.
6. Anno 2205 (PC)
The sixth game of the Anno series is here with the Anno 2205, a futuristic city-building game with real-time strategy and economical simulation elements. The gameplay is quite similar to SimCity and as obvious, the whole objective is to build as much as possible but in a wise way. Besides building houses, players must produce goods and other utility buildings too in order to maintain an economical stability. Buildings can also be upgraded to improve their efficiency. On the other hand, citizens play a key-role – if they are satisfied, they will produce more goods; if they’re unhappy, they will produce less or even abandon your city.

In the end, the objective is to acquire enough cohesion and unity to ensure the Protoss’ survival. As the previous stories, where Jim Raynor and Sarah Kerrigan were the protagonists in both Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm respectively, now it’s time to unveil Artanis’ faith.
