Nothing says holiday season better than new video game new releases. Whether you’re talking about the brand new consoles hitting the market or the games themselves, it always occurs right around the Christmas season.
This year, just in time for the fall season, you have several new games hitting the shelves. Let’s take a look, shall we?
#1 – Call of Duty: Ghosts
This is obviously going to be one of the bestsellers in 2013. Gamers get a new COD universe to play in where devastation has already occurred and now it’s just a game of survival with a new set of characters – including the one you customize as your own.
The “ghosts” in this COD game are a special ops group who are trying to battle a new global superpower that’s cropping up. Like the others in this franchise, the graphics are unbelievable and fans will be pleased at how realistic it all looks.
#2 – Batman: Arkham Origins
The Batman: Arkham Origins game comes out in 2013, too. This Batman is not the focused, experienced superhero you grew up with – he’s young and not yet committed to his future superhero status.
Fans of this storyline will enjoy seeing Gotham City back in its heyday — long before the evil villains got ahold of it and ruled its citizens. As Batman, you’ll be meeting important characters and sealing your relationship with them for your future interaction.
#3 – Battlefield 4
Battlefield 4 is on the horizon this year. You’ll be fighting for victory on gun boats, in buildings, and more. Your first task? To rescue some American VIPs in Shanghai and bring your troops home.
Fans of the Battlefield series will be sure to want this.
#4 – Grand Theft Auto 5
This is another series that’s always popular with active gamers. They’re going to love this release, which features the city of Los Santos – and it’s the biggest open world that Rockstar has released to date.
Not only do you get to be one character – but you can toggle between characters to see what the POV is among all people involved in a situation. You get to be the three lead characters – Franklin, Michael, and Trevor – all criminals trying to achieve their own wicked form of success. These aren’t petty criminals, either – they’re interested in major heists.
#5 – Diablo III
Diablo III is ranking as one of the top pre-release video games on the market. Your character is heading back to the origins of the franchise – to Tristram, amid what appears to be the end times.
You can either play by yourself as a witch or demon hunter, a wizard, a barbarian, or a monk – or, set up alliances with other gamers. As you level up, you acquire new abilities in the game.
