By Rebecca Smith, 2 months ago
After the constant bombardment of titles throughout the month of October, this week players get a bit of a breather before the onslaught continues this month. Having said that, despite there only being seven titles this week, there are some pretty big releases amongst them. At retail, the Assassin's Creed franchise heads to Greece, Forza arrives for everyone, there's a new Mega Man title, and WWE 2K19 becomes available for those who purchased the game's Deluxe Edition. There's a new ACA NEOGEO title, and then ID@Xbox brings along the remaining two titles, a prequel to a gnome-themed puzzle game and a board game with giant robots. For more information on each of those titles and more, check out the list below, and scroll to the bottom for prices and download links:
