Now Arriving: Games of December 2017

Well, here it is folks, the final month of the 2017 calendar year. Typically, December is viewed as a time to catch-up. A month where players use to not only catch their breath from the whirlwind release schedule of the past three months but to finally get a chance to play many of those games.

The trend this year is largely the same as it has been, though the truth of the matter is that December does hold a few gems as well.

The biggest of them all this month is likely PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, which finally enters into the Xbox One Game Preview program. The unstoppable force from the PC hopes to have the same effect on console now, which has since been dominated by its closest rival, Fortnite. I, for one, am looking forward to seeing if the game can translate that PC momentum to console, or if Fortnite has had too much of a lead to this point.

For you PlayStation fans, a number of collections for popular games you may have missed are finally being released as well including the complete edition for Horizon: Zero Dawn and Dead Rising 4 which captures all of the previously released content from the former Xbox One/PC timed exclusive. Okami HD is also making its grand return, sporting updated visuals and 4K for you premium console fans.

As expected, it’s a down month for video game releases. Still, there are some interesting prospects out there for those of you looking for new things to try. Also, don’t forget that I’ll be unveiling my annual Gamer Crash Awards this month, so make sure to stay tuned for those!
