Games To Play During The Holiday Season
It is that time of year again – what are new games? It’s a question asked of almost everyone, yet often not given the correct answer. There are already some great new games out for this coming season, including both for the current generation consoles (the Xbox and the PS4) and for the new generation of future consoles (PSVR and Xbox Scorpio). In addition to these announcements, Square Enix has also provided screensavers for each of their upcoming games, giving you a look at what is in store for you.
One such game that has just released is Final Fantasy XI: Herald of Wisdom. This expansion pack for Final Fantasy XI, the hit MMORPG series, comes to you from developers Tetsuya Nomura and Kazushige Nojima and provides you with an entirely new step in the game’s storyline. If you loved the original version of Final Fantasy XI, then you’ll love this latest update, which offers an experience that’s both familiar and fresh, in a single game. If you’re looking for a new challenge, Final Fantasy XI: Herald of Wisdom is definitely the one to get, as it provides hours of fun and discovery, sure to please the most dedicated of players.
Another one of the slew of new games coming to the screens this season is Need for Speed: The Run. This PC game from publisher EA has just been delayed a couple of months, but now it looks like it will make it fall in the second half of the next year or even sooner. If you have always wanted to be able to take on the streets and beat criminals, then you better prepare to have your hands wet with Need for Speed: The Run, as the game promises a fast pace that can’t be ignored by anyone. We expect many more announcements about new games in the future for all of the major consoles, so keep your eyes open for any and all announcements, as they are certainly plentiful at this time.
Nintendo Switch is another one of the big upcoming games for this year, as the console continues to slowly expand its target demographic. Last week, the company announced that it had sold over two million units since the release of the console in the Americas. This was quite the surprising turn of events, as few people expected Nintendo to perform so poorly in its own country. Fortunately, the sales are expected to steadily increase throughout the rest of the world, giving Nintendo its best holiday ever financial performance.
And as if Nintendo Switch wasn’t enough to get everyone hyped up about September, there’s another big name in mobile gaming, with the announcement of a new game called Pokemon Go! The cellular phone game has already caused quite a stir with gamers everywhere, as it draws some criticism for being one dimensional and having limited social interaction. While many are looking forward to interacting with others through this highly anticipated game, others remain cautious, not sure if it will be a success. However, it’s certainly worth trying out if you’re on board for the September holidays. Other new games coming to mobile devices include Horizon Riders: Definitive Edition, Need for Speed, Dragon Age: Origins, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Edition, FIFA 14, and more.
There are many other popular games coming out during the month of January, including titles such as God of War, Tom Clancy Rainbow Six, Dishonored 2, and more. However, none of these should be considered a major loss, as many readers have already expressed their desire for these titles. What’s most important is that readers have a lot to look forward to during this happy and enjoyable holiday season.
