As the year draws to a close, so do the game releases, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some crackers coming up before Christmas.
Dead Rising 4
Release Date: December 6 Platform: Xbox One / PC
Frank West is back with a bang. A decade after we first saw him fight the zombie hordes of Willamette, he’s returned for some reason in Dead Rising 4. Set at Christmas, quite apt really, use exo suits, chainsaws and Christmas-related weaponry to see your way through all the biters the game can throw at you in typical, quirky Dead Rising style. Oh, and take selfies with zombies, since… 2016.
Buy Dead Rising 4 on Amazon.
The Last Guardian
Release Date: December 9 Platform: PS4
The follow-up to Shadow of the Colossus, that’s been 8 years in the making after numerous setbacks, is finally coming to your Playstation 4. The Last Guardian brings the tale of an unlikely partnership with the player and his griffin-like buddy, Trico, who must overcome crumbling ruins and a series of puzzles with each others help. He’s not your usual pet, but damn is he cute. Expect heartbreak at the end, probably.
