The Callisto protocol, NFS Unbound, plus: December games on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X

What are the biggest games in December 2022? Despite the lack of volume in the second half – thanks to the Christmas holiday period – December promises to be a pretty decent month for video game releases. First up is The Callisto Protocol out Dec. 2, a space survival horror that immerses you in a tense, bloody, closed-aisle prison where unspeakable horrors lurk around every corner. On the same day, the Need for Speed ​​franchise returns with NFS Unbound, sporting an anime-like cell-shaded aesthetic. Although popular American rapper A$AP Rocky is featured in promotional material, he will simply be available as an in-game boss that you can interact with.

After numerous delays, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is finally getting its next-gen update on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series S/X this December, featuring an intense visual overhaul, ray tracing support, and some in-game goodies based on Netflix’s The Witcher series. This will be available as a free update for those who already own the title on those platforms, with the PC version getting an additional photo mode. Just before that, on December 13, Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland lends his creativity to a comedic biopunk shooter called High on Life. Armed with an array of charismatic and talking weapons, you must become the deadliest intergalactic bounty hunter and save the world.

The heroic theme carries over into Marvel’s Midnight Suns on Dec. 2, when you’re thrust into a darker supernatural realm to assemble a faction of beloved superheroes and put an end to the evil deeds of Lilith, Mother of Demons. So you can keep cool by venturing into the cold night as an investigative journalist, looking to uncover your creepy neighbor’s secrets in Hello Neighbor 2, available December 6th.

And don’t forget, The Game Awards 2022 is also scheduled for December – 8th night in the US and 9th morning in India.

With that, here are the top seven games for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X in December 2022.

The Callisto Protocol

When: December 2nd
Where: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X

From the mind of Glen Schofield comes The Callisto Protocol, a spiritual sequel to Dead Space that tasks you with escaping the maximum security Dark Iron Prison overrun by bloodthirsty parasitic aliens. Set on Jupiter’s dead moon Callisto in the year 2320, you take on the role of Jacob Lee, a victim of fate armed with a medley of melee weapons, who must fight his way out of claustrophobic passages and, in the process, uncover a conspiracy. His character is also equipped with a telekinetic power, allowing you to grab enemies from afar and throw them at razor-sharp knives and between heavy doors.

The Callisto Protocol is about to be heavy on dismemberment, as you’re forced to get up close and personal with grotesque aliens – hacking and blowing up limbs and getting creative with whatever’s available at your disposal in order to survive. The game also stars Karen Fukuhara (The Boys) as an unnamed companion and adds a season pass to its Deluxe Edition. Priced at Rs. 2999, adds four pieces of content, which include 25 new kill animations. Development on the latter begins next year at Striking Distance Studios.
