The most juicy autumn period is over, leaving an aftertaste from Death Stranding, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Shenmue 3. The end of the year is poor in classics for major releases from the word at all. December 2019 games were no exception. On the verge of awarding the best games of the year and grinding the bones for all major gaming events. However, it is still impossible not to survey the December games. We have compiled a release calendar for December with projects that we think you should pay attention to.
Arise: A Simple Story - December 3 [PC, PS4, Xbox One]
This game stands out from other projects at Techland, which is used to publishing violent action games like Dying Light.
In turn, Arise is an artistic adventure in which you play as an elderly person and take a long emotional journey through his life. His memories come to life, and time obeys only you.
The timing mechanics will be critical to solving many of the puzzles in the game, and as it stands, Arise seems as mysterious as its art style.
Phoenix Point - December 3 [PC]
New turn-based tactics from Snapshot Games, better known for its X-COM series. Spiritually inheriting from its predecessor, the game gives us the opportunity to fight with infected mutants. The gameplay will consist of two parts - base management on the global map and the battles themselves.
Halo: Reach - December 4th [PC, Xbox One]
One of the big projects that has already been released on Xbox and PC this month is Halo: The Master Chief Collection, namely the first game from this collection of Halo Reach. The collection itself includes a collection of old games, but in high definition. Includes: Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3, ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: Reach. Halo: Reach will tell the PC boyars a new story and give them a ride in multiplayer. It will be free for Xbox Game Pass owners.
Darksiders Genesis - December 5th [PC]
Last year's Darksiders III was a pretty good soul-like project. Darksiders Genesis could be the series' return to the formula we've been waiting for, albeit in a completely different way. Darksiders Genesis is not a third-person RPG adventure, but a top-down shooter.
That said, it's Darksiders in style and tone, especially with the return of War as the protagonist. The game will try to return to the atmosphere of the first part. Genesis also gives you the final horseman of the apocalypse Strife as a companion. They will both break through the events of the prequel. The game launches on PC in December, followed by consoles in February 2020.
Mosaic - December 5 [PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch]
Mosaic is a dark and surreal game about modern society and a person stuck in everyday life, trying to make sense of all this. This is an interactive adventure from the developers of Sleep Killbrite Studios.
As the creator says, the routine of everyday existence in a world where everything seems to be in its place starts to transform into something else.
All of this only adds intrigue, and anyone who has ever thought about what it all means, and what is the point of standing in a crowded subway car or other public transport, can find answers in this mysterious game.
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries - December 10 [PC, PS4, Xbox One]
MechWarrior is a combat game with many mechanics that border on simulator. At the same time MechWarrior 5 is an action game with elements of space travel and politics. The core of the game is managing large 'Mechs and focusing on the tactical component, taking into account a lot of details: terrain, weather, armor, temperature and, of course, ammunition. All this must be taken into account before starting a full battle. The MechWarrior games emphasize the fact that you are a pilot, not a machine, so it won't be easy.
Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York - December 11 [PC]
Vampire: Masquerade is a tabletop RPG based on which the amazing Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines was made in due time. The second part of this game will be released next year, and so that the insatiable fans of the World of Darkness [the alternative universe reflects our own, but filled with supernatural beings that live among us and hide in plain sight] can while away their expectations, a visual novel will be released especially for them on December 11 Vampire: Masquerade - Coteries of New York.
It depicts the two main factions of vampires and their struggle for power in modern New York. The ramified plot, the choice of the side and the consequences of the choice are attached.
Detroit: Become Human - December 12 [RS]
The latest cinematic interactive adventure from David Cage, the master of interactive adventure games. Probably the second loudest and most anticipated project this month.
We have to follow several androids, which are considered a marginal group in the game. Perhaps the most impressive thing about the game is the sheer amount of dialogue and story forks determined by choice and incident.
The game has been an exclusive hit on PS4 for a long 18 months, and now, thanks to the Quantic Dream and EGS agreements, the PC boyars will get it on their 4K platform.
Wattam - December 17 [PC, PS4]
Wattam by Japanese game creator Keita Takahashi from Katamari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy is probably the strangest new game this month.
The developer describes the game as a project about joy, friendship and discovery, although, looking at its trailer, you probably would never have guessed.
And despite the vegetables falling from the sky and the strange protagonist, the game is clearly bright and very original.
Everreach: Project Eden - December 20 [RS]
And the last novelty for December will be Everreach: Project Eden. Managing Everreach Security Officer Norah Harwood, we will set out to colonize the planet Eden. There we will clean it from the remnants of an ancient civilization. Michelle Clough, writer of the Mass Effect series, is working on the game, so there are hopes that a good story will be brought up to the project.
With these December games we will celebrate the new year.
