November 2016 New PC Games To Watch For

Hmm, another month with some promising releases. Damn, I really need to make time to play some of these.

Owlboy is a platform-adventure video game created by independent developer D-Pad Studio.The player controls Otus, who is capable of flying and carrying objects during flight that he can use to throw at enemies. As the game progresses, Otus gains allies that accompany him during his journey, each having their own weapon with exclusive properties. The game is notable for its long development cycle, which began in 2007, and was released in November 1, 2016.

Beholder is a video game about a life in a totalitarian State. The game is developed by Warm Lamp Games and published by Alawar Entertainment. Beholder is inspired by dystopian works of George Orwell, Aldous Huxley and Ray Bradbury. The game offers a player a chance to either follow the commands of the Government or to side with the people who suffer from the oppressive directives. Each game character has their own personality, circumstances and issues. Every decision that a player makes affects the way the story unfolds. The game has multiple endings each of them being a sum of the decisions made by a player. Beholder is released on Steam on November 9, 2016 and supports Windows, macOS and Linux.

Tyranny is a role-playing video game developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Paradox Interactive. While not a sequel, Tyranny builds upon the gameplay and engine used in Obsidian's previous title Pillars of Eternity, allowing the developers to spend more time on crafting a game where player choices have a more meaningful effect on the game's story. The game starts after the evil overlord Kyros has already conquered the world, and where the player-character, a Fatebinder, is one of the higher-ranked members in Kyros' power structure. As a Fatebinder, the player must travel the world to help restore order after Kyros' victory, and make decisions on how to handle the various factions of survivors, which can affect what companions, spells, and abilities the player may select from. The game was released for Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux on November 10, 2016.

Dishonored 2

Both Emily and Corvo employ their own array of supernatural abilities. They can alternatively decide to forfeit them altogether. There are a multitude of ways to succeed in each given mission, from stealth to purposeful violent conflict.

There are multiple ways to complete missions, and each successful assignment increases the follower count of DedSec. Cooperative multiplayer allows for competitive one-on-one combat and connecting with other players in order to neutralize a player who is actively causing havoc.
