It’s almost time for your monthly dose of gaming goodness courtesy of PlayStation Plus and with Christmas just round the corner we are expecting Sony to deliver some big presents.
Last Christmas, I gave you my heart but the very next day… sorry, that happens automatically, let me try that again.
Last Christmas Sony delivered some top games with the excellent OnRush and even better SOMA as their December titles. The year before that we got Darksiders 2 Deathinitive Edition and, er, Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends. Maybe forget about that one.
We could go to Reddit to find out what everyone is predicting but for a change I thought we could see just how clever the staff at TSA are so here are their predictions.
Dom suggests Knack 2 and Horizon Zero Dawn, “a big one for Christmas”. Jim agrees with Horizon Zero Dawn being a pick, and as the game features a lot of snow it is perfect for the holidays. He also suggests Star Wars Battlefront 2 which is a really good call what with the new Star Wars movie coming out. Sales for that must be near zero for EA so a big boost to the community and lots of fresh faces to sell DLC too would be most welcome to their accountants.
However, Teflon cautions that “It won’t be Battlefront II as it is available in EA Access,” and suggests Rainbow Six Siege instead. Steve is going for Agony and The Quiet Man, and Aran makes a good call with the base game of Monster Hunter. Jason clearly has no idea how this works as he thinks the games will be “God of War and Spider-Man.” No Jason, just no.
I’m going to predict something from Ubisoft, maybe one of their ongoing games such as The Division 2 or Ghost Recon. I’m also going to predict something a little more family friendly for the holidays so maybe Overcooked 2, Human Fall Flat, or a similar title.
Don’t forget that PlayStation Plus is currently discounted by 25% in the Black Friday sale on the PlayStation Store.
