It's Wednesday at the start of a new month, so it's time to look at all the games that will be coming out in the coming weeks. How about some Call of Duty and a new Pokémon?

The end of the year is fast approaching, but the gaming season has finally reached its peak. November is a big month, with a new Call of Duty, a new Pokémon and both Watch Dogs and Dishonored finally receiving a sequel. I've handpicked my three favourite releases this month, which you can find below the full list of releases.
PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4
A new Call of Duty is always a reason to celebrate. While most gamers will dive headfirst into the explosive multiplayer, the singleplayer campaign should be another highlight this year. Infinity Ward hired Kit Harington (who plays Jon Snow in Game of Thrones) to play the main villain in the story, which is set in the distant future. The earth is all dried up and humanity depends on space colonies to survive. Expect a lot of futuristic guns and gadgets in both the singleplayer and the multiplayer.
Bundled with Infinite Warfare is the HD remake of Modern Warfare, the first 'modern' Call of Duty from back in 2007. PlayStation 4 players could already play the singleplayer campaign, but with the release of Infinite Warfare, the entire MW remake gets unlocked. Get ready to (re)play one of the best shooters from the last 10 years!
PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4
Dishonored was one of 2012's best games and this month it's finally getting a sequel. It's once again set in the fictional Empire of the Isles, where you can choose to play as either Emily or her father Corvo (remember him from the first game?). Each character has its own set of supernatural abilities and as a player you get to decide how to use these skills. You can silently take out your opponents one by one, or you can go berserk and use your abilities to wreak some havoc. You can even finish the game without taking a single life (we're not saying this will be easy).
Dishonored 2 has won IGN's 'Best Xbox One Game' award at E3 2016, after being nominated in the categories 'Game of the Show', 'Best PlayStation 4 Game', 'Best Action Game', 'Best Trailer' and 'Best PC Game'. So if you're looking for a new stealth action-adventure, Dishonored 2 is sure to satisfy that need.
Even though the games have followed the same basic set of rules for 20 years, a new Pokémon game is always exciting. Imagine our surprise when Nintendo slowly unveiled more and more details on Sun & Moon, revealing that almost nothing stays the same this time around. The classic set-up of defeating the 8 Gym Leaders and then taking on the Pokémon League is gone and so are the arbitrary HM-moves. Some of the classic Pokémon like Grimer/Muk, Raticate, Meowth/Persian and Marowak will be available in a special Alolan Form, which changes their appearance, types and abilities.
Pokémon Sun and Moon are set 12 hours apart from eachother. That means that when it's daytime in Sun, it will be nighttime in Moon and vice versa. And of course each version has a set of exclusive Pokémon, although trading with other players through the internet is a breeze these days. Looking to pre-order Pokémon Sun and Moon?
