Best Games December 2022: best games on PC, Xbox and PS5

As we near the festive season, the video game release charts are starting to thin out a bit, with blockbuster games taking over the release schedule for the last few months.

That being said, December still has a few notable releases up its sleeve that you’ll no doubt want to add to your Christmas list if you want to find them under the tree on the morning of the 25th.

Here are five brand new video games to keep an eye on throughout December 2022.

The Callisto Protocol

PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S

The Callisto Protocol takes place in 2320 at Black Iron, a prison colony operated by the United Jupiter Company on Jupiter’s moon Callisto.

The player takes on the role of Jacob Lee (voiced by American actor Josh Duhamel), a prisoner in Black Iron who finds himself in the midst of an alien invasion apparently orchestrated by the warden.

What is it? Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a tactical RPG that features characters from many Marvel Comics titles, including the Midnight Sons, Avengers, X-Men and the Runaways. Players design their own superhero called “The Hunter” with over 40 potential abilities.

The game’s combat is turn-based, similar to the XCOM series, and between combat missions, players manage their upgradeable base of operations known as “The Abbey,” which they can wander around in third-person perspective to explore the Explore terrain and connect with other heroes.

Interacting with other characters, for example, affects gameplay and heroes’ abilities. At the start of each new mission, players can choose one of three heroes to accompany them and receive a deck of random ability cards to use throughout the mission.

Need for Speed ​​Unbound

What is it? Where previous Need for Speed ​​games presented a self-serious tone and pushed for realism in their graphics, Unbound seems to embrace the arcade racer theme and achieve a much more cartoonish look.

The racing graphics will be peppered with graffiti-style overlays, which will certainly add a classy flair to the action. For example, players will be rewarded with Burst Nitrous boosts for driving in style, and can trigger one of these looks to cover the screen in colorful artwork.

The game will be set in another Need for Speed ​​open world known as Lake Shore, which is loosely based on the real-life Chicago. Of course, the local police department plays a big, antagonistic role in the game and will take care of you if you break too many traffic rules.

PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S

What is it? Developed by Rick & Morty’s Justin Roiland, this comedic “biopunk” first-person shooter is set in a sci-fi universe. It also includes talking weapons, each with their own personality, to accompany you on your adventure, commenting on the action ahead with signature Roiland humor.

Its premise is predictably insane too. An alien mafia has captured the vast majority of humanity to use as drugs and you as a bounty hunter must explore the galaxy to save humanity by using weapons known as the Galatians to take down the threats.

With designers describing the game somewhere between The Muppets and Blade Runner, trailers suggest this is a video game (a medium that, for all its good work, often struggles to be genuinely funny) that will make it to provide some real laughs for even the most serious gamer.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

What is it? If you’re thinking, “Wait a minute, didn’t The Witcher 3 come out years ago?” you’d be right. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an action role-playing game that was first released in 2015.

This version of the game is a current-gen upgrade for fans playing on Xbox Series X/S and PS5 consoles, and is available as a free upgrade for those who already have the existing PS4, PC, and Xbox One Own versions of the game – or as a separate purchase.

Faster load times, ray tracing, and all previously available downloadable content is expected to be included, including new downloadable content based on the Netflix TV series adaptation.
