Welcome back to the Best Games to Stream Right Now, streamers! November is a special month because there are so many new games rounding out the year. We are also getting the launches of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, the next generation systems for Sony and Microsoft. You have a ton of options when it comes to streaming this month! You can focus on the new launch titles for the next-gen systems, or focus on some familiar faces that are launching expansions or new installments. Let’s take a look at what November has in store for you and your stream!
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
It’s November and if you are a fan of the FPS genre in any capacity, you know what that means. A new Call of Duty installment is right around the corner. Don’t worry, Treyarch and Activision aren’t going to let you down. November 13th is the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. This will be a direct sequel to Treyarch’s first Black Ops title, focused on the Cold War and espionage of that era. It will be launching with a campaign, multiplayer experience, zombies experience, and an integrated Warzone experience (coming December 2020).
You really can’t go wrong with Call of Duty. The yearly rotation provides just enough time to really grind and have fun unlocking items, while not being too stale by the next installment. This title is great because Treyarch is going back to the Black Ops 1 roots, focusing on great multiplayer gameplay, a solid campaign, and an intense zombies experience. If you are a streamer who is in the FPS genre niche, playing Black Ops Cold War on stream will be a pretty organic fit.
If you are a zombies player, you are in for an even better fit. Black Ops Cold War was announced with an elaborate easter egg hunt that took players in Warzone and Black Ops 4 to find clues. As the zombies experience has always relied on great storytelling and easter eggs, you know Treyarch is coming out swinging. It will be a great time to stream the steps that you are taking to solve the puzzles and be the first to unlock the ending. People will be watching new streamers and old to see who can get that going so make sure you are working extra hard to stream this type of content as long as you can. You might be able to garner a lot of viewers in no time.
World of Warcraft: Shadowlands
We included World of Warcraft in our September games to play because of the upcoming expansion, Shadowlands. Unfortunately for all you WoW players, you know that Shadowlands got delayed until November 23, 2020. If you took our advice and started streaming the tail end of Battle for Azeroth and moved into prepatch content, its a logical next step to stream the launch of Shadowlands.
Players across the world will be starting together at the same time and its a great opportunity to gather some people who might be interested in what the new expansion brings about. WoW’s current expansion, Battle for Azeroth, was a mediocre expansion at best, setting most of the story up for a larger part in Shadowlands. Therefore, players might be hesitant to drop money on an expansion that might not deliver. You should expect new and old players coming in to your streams to see the experience and be ready to answer any questions they might have. You might be able to convert a non-believer to an active player once again!
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
For all you PS5 players, you are in for a treat with the newest launch title, Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The PlayStation 5 is launching with Miles Morales and picks up after the events of Marvel’s Spider-Man. The perspective this time is through the eyes of Miles Morales, who has gotten some experience and training under his belt from Peter Parker.
With Miles Morales being a launch title, you know that thousands of people who weren’t able to secure a PS5 preorder are going to flock to streamers to watch the playthrough. If you position yourself correctly (and actually have a system that is coming on time), you might be able to capitalize heavily on this hype. Marvel’s Spider-Man was an instant hit on PlayStation 4, so there is no denying that Miles Morales will probably follow that same path, especially with Insomniac Games at the helm once again. Be ready right at launch and start streaming as early as you can to gather as many people as you can to watch your content!
This month is going to be huge for video games. Not only are there an insane amount of games coming out, many of them will be next gen ready or even launching alongside the new consoles. The hype and demand for gameplay will be at an all-time high for games like Miles Morales. You’ll also be seeing old favorites like World of Warcraft and Call of Duty bringing new looks with their next installments. This is a great time to be a video game player! If you have other games you’d suggest people try in November, let us know in the comments down below! We might just feature them in our next segment!
As always, keep on creating and GLHF!
