At first glance, you might find the list of games coming out in December to be lackluster, but even if that may be the case, there’s still something for everyone here and at least one of the upcoming titles will warm your hardcore gaming heart. Those who crave VR exploration will be enthralled by not one, but two Bethesda titles. Doom VFR is already live and kicking for PSVR and Vive, while Fallout 4 VR is preparing to become a permanent Vive guest come 12 December. Switch fanatics already had their fill with Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and can continue reveling in Yooka-Laylee, as well as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild — The Champion’s Ballad. As for the rest, don’t go anywhere and keep on reading the good words bellow!

Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris (PS4, Xbox One, PC) – 5 December

Being the first expansion, Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris plans on offering more of the same and expand the fun on new battle grounds and with new Strikes, missions, as well as a new space for socializing (if that is or ever becomes a thing for you). Aside from this, you can go ahead and look forward to some more Raid Lairs, optional questing and a World Quest. Your new point of entry is Mercury. On this planet, you are to save Osiris from Vex and dodge a brave new future, which, as luck would have it, is pretty dark, and unloving, and you should avoid it at all costs! Still not willing to bite the bullet? It so happens that Bungie lets you go for a free spin and try the campaign, join clans and test the multiplayer waters. With this expansion, a lot of the folk expects, nay demands, better economy then the one that’s currently set in place.

The Surge: A Walk in the Park (PS4, Xbox One, PC) – 5 December

If you’ve played The Surge or any Dark Souls alternative that you know that nothing is walk in the park with this type of games. However, if you played this particular sci-fi DS clone, then you probably know what to expect from the upcoming expansion, which it bravely boils down to more dying, but in a post-apocalyptic fun park, and, when push comes to shove, who wouldn’t want that? Sceptics would claim that The Surge isn’t a particularly good game, but don’t listen to them, they’re called sceptics for a reason. Scratch under the surface, and you’ll come across a plethora of fun, gameplay mechanics in a suave, sophisticated and stylish world.

Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package (PS4, Xbox One, PC) – 5 December

Looking at the name, two things come to mind. For the sake of our reputation, we’ll only mention one. You might think it’s an expansion (pun-oh-so-not-intended), but it’s actually a gold edition of some sort, where you get the core game and all of the DLCs for it, as well as a new Capcom Heroes mode. Granted, Dead Rising 4 didn’t go so well at the time of release but time and dedication of the team did wonders for the game and, in its current state, can offer deep array of distractions to hold your attention.

Hello Neighbor (Xbox One, PC) – 8 December

Hello Neighbor is not your typical horror game but it will do you a world of good if you’re into spying on your creepy neighbor and trying to unravel all of the juicy secrets that are being hidden from you. The studio developing the game promises a story that is fully devoid of cheap jump scares and a somewhat revolutionary gameplay that’s based on progressive stealth sequences and clever environmental interactions. But don’t trust our word for it, there’s a demo, go check it out! But not just yet. Plenty to read about what’s coming next!

Okami HD (PS4, Xbox One, PC) – 12 December

Remember the time when one remaster was a thing? Good times as they may be, one remaster for Okami is not enough and Capcom seem more then willing to push out another one. Okami HD supports 4K resolutions and the luxury of choosing to go with either a widescreen presentation or the original 4:3 display. There’s a gossip flying around that Okami is a spitting image of Ocarina of Time, but with better visual style. And better, heartfelt, mature story. And gorgeous graphics that will keep you coming back for more. You know, one might think it’s Ocarina of Time, but better. Guess all those first-time players will find out soon enough.

Resident Evil 7: Gold Edition (PS4, Xbox One, PC) – 12 December

Resident Evil 7 was a great game that refined and streamlined the survival horror genre. It’s about to become even better. The Gold Edition will be out together with the long-awaited ‘End of Zoe DLC’ as well as the ‘Banned Footage Volumes 1 and 2’. ‘Not a Hero DLC’ will also be part of this and, as a free DLC, it will continue the story from the core game and try to figure out what in the world is happening with Chris Redfield. Fans of the game were not too impressed by ‘Banned Footage Volumes 1 and 2’, but ‘End of Zoe’ promises new enemies and swampy areas begging to be explored, if that ever was a thing.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (Xbox One, Early Access) – December

PC domination is not enough for this game, so PUBG is now trying to expand and conquer the Xbox One crowd via the Microsoft’s Game Preview Program. As soon as the port is out, you won’t find too many, if any, noticeable distinctions between the two versions, but, as time progresses, developer Bluehole plans on changing the Xbox One version and sell Xbox One exclusive cosmetics from the store. Witness the ascend of the Battle Royal with this year’s best and most unexpected experiences, but, hopefully, with less hacking, better engine optimization and even grander player-driven storytelling.
