New Games for the Holiday Season

This was in my feed this morning from MSN.  There are actually a few games I’m looking forward to playing once they come out.  In Jacob Siegal’s opinion, below are the most anticipated 19 video games of the 2017 holiday season.

19 Games.

My favs:

Assassin’s Creed Origins | PS4, Xbox One, PC | October 27th

I’ve been hooked on Assassin’s Creed for a while.  Here’s the blurb for Origins:

Assassin’s Creed® Origins is a new beginning. Experience a new way to fight while exploring the Great Pyramids and hidden tombs across the country of Ancient Egypt. Live emotional and memorable adventures along your journey, and discover the origin story of the Assassin’s Brotherhood.

Star Wars Battlefront II | PS4, Xbox One, PC | November 17th

Call me a sentimental old fool, but after more than  40 years, I still love the Star Wars franchise.

Here’s the blurb:

Embark on an endless Star Wars™ action experience from the bestselling Star Wars HD videogame franchise of all time.

Rush through waves of enemies on Starkiller Base with the power of your lightsaber in your hands. Storm through the jungle canopy of a hidden Rebel base on Yavin 4 with your fellow troopers, dispensing firepower from AT-STs. Line up your X-wing squadron for an attack on a mammoth First Order Star Destroyer in space. Or rise as a new Star Wars hero – Iden, an elite Imperial special forces soldier – and discover an emotional and gripping single-player story spanning thirty years.

Experience rich and living Star Wars multiplayer battlegrounds across all three eras: prequel, classic, and new trilogy. Customize and upgrade your heroes, starfighters, or troopers, each with unique abilities to exploit in battle. Ride tauntauns or take control of tanks and speeders. Down Star Destroyers the size of cities, use the Force to prove your worth against iconic characters such as Kylo Ren, Darth Maul, or Han Solo, as you play a part in a gaming experience inspired by 40 years of timeless Star Wars films.

You can become the master of your own Star Wars hero’s journey.

I haven’t quite made my mind up; there’s a few more on this list I’m looking to buy from now until the holidays.
