It's the final episode of New Releases for November, and there are still some anticipated games coming your way. The first is Darksiders 3, one of many games THQ Nordic has in the pipeline, and the second is Artifact, Valve's first new game in some time. November also wraps up with two indie games, Parkitect and Rival Megagun, while Nintendo Switch gets its own port of ARK: Survival Evolved.
Darksiders III -- November 27
Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC
Darksiders 3 features Fury, the most chaotic of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, sent to earth to hunt down the Seven Deadly Sins. She can take down enemies with her heavy whips and magic spells, absorbing their souls to upgrade her own skills. There's a good dose of puzzle-solving and open-world exploration here too.

Artifact -- November 28
Available on: PC
It's been a long time since Valve released a game of any kind, but the studio has teamed up with Magic: The Gathering creator Richard Garfield for a card game based on Dota 2. Like that MOBA, Artifact has you battling across three lanes. Unlike other digital card games, it lets you play unlimited units on the field and hold unlimited cards in your hand.

Parkitect -- November 29
Available on: PC
Parkitect was successfully crowdfunded thanks to its promise to bring back the Roller Coaster Tycoon style of park simulation. Unlike that series, however, you can also construct buildings specifically for staff and resource gathering. As expected, Parkitect also features tons of thrill rides for you to lay out and customize.
Rival Megagun -- November 29
Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch
Shoot-'em-ups don't usually focus on splitscreen multiplayer, but that's the case here. You can attack enemy ships and your opponent, power up, and transform into a super-sized boss gunship for your rival to fight. You can also fly through a single-player arcade mode if no friends are around to join you.
ARK: Survival Evolved -- November 30
Available on: Switch
The dinosaur survival game is headed to Nintendo Switch, which means you can gather resources and craft gear anywhere you carry your console. Even better, it features all content from the original game. Raptors will still totally ruin your day, though.

That wraps up New Releases for November, but there's still one more month to go in 2018. It's a big one too--next episode we'll look at some hugely anticipated titles like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Just Cause 4.
