NplusX – Games in December 2020


A packed Christmas end spurt.

Twin Mirror (01. Dezember)

To be honest, at the Paris-based developer Dontnod Entertainment, we still think of it straight away Life is Strange, the great episode title. Since the adventure was published in 2015, it has followed Vampire, Life is Strange 2 and the Xbox exclusive Tell Me Why rather moderate success (playful as well as commercial), so that the plans for an expansion to an AAA developer are still on hold. Even after the latest game, Twin Mirror, the indie developer will probably remain one of them – of course, that’s not tragic. The new adventure is, even if it was designed in episode format in the meantime, an independent game. We hear the story of the investigative journalist Sam, who is investigating in his hometown. Typically Dontnod there are different endings here. Twin Mirror appears for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Immortals: Fenyx Rising (December 3rd)

When the action adventure is announced, everyone has the direct comparison Zelda bread drawn, and given the chosen graphics and the open game world, that’s no wonder. In fact, however, the game around the protagonist Fenyx has moved a bit away from the model, which I also do in mine Play report of the Google Stadia demo have set out. Ubisoft Qu├ębec (most recently Assassin’s Creed Odyssey) are oriented towards bread, but try something new here and that’s basically something nice at treadmill forges. How the adventure can actually perform and whether the game world can maintain the quality of the demo for the entire game can be found in our test. Immortals: Fenyx Rising appears for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series and Google Stadia.

Haven (December 3rd)

The Game Bakers from Montpellier have dealt with standard puzzlers like Squids or Squids Odyssey not necessarily covered with fame, but then with Furi released one of the best action titles in 2016. You have now taken your time with the relaxed RPG Haven for four years. The only thing that Haven has in common with the previous project is the fight for freedom; apart from that, we get a completely different game here. We control the two protagonists Yu and Kay at the same time in their search for resources to make their home a little more pleasant. Occasional fights create tension, while the story otherwise focuses on the relationship between Yu and Kay and we should get to know the two characters in all facets. Haven appears for Steam, Xbox One, Xbox Series (directly from release in Game Pass) and PlayStation 5 and later for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

Cyberpunk 2077 (December 10th)

The comment: This release date is only valid with reservations. The upcoming RPG from CD Project Red has been postponed several times, but everything looks like that December 10th will really be the day of the epochal work. But can the science fiction role-playing game still live up to the immense expectations? Well, after all, the Poles are one of the few developers who can be trusted to achieve this. Oh, about the game: We play a character in Night City Wire and experience the extensive main story and countless side missions there with equal intensity. There is also the lively game world and certainly some sideline activities. A classic RPG then. Cyberpunk 2077 appears for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and is upward compatible too Xbox Series and PlayStation 5.

What else is there?

The VR RPG was released in 2016 Chronos for Oculus and thus a small target group.

Also on December 1st and also for Steam, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One comes the strategy game Empire of Sin from Brenda (Wizardry) and John Romero (Doom).

The strategy simulation, on the other hand, is about terraforming and colonizing Mars For Asperathat started on December 03 Steam appears. Steam and the Nintendo Switch will also be featuring the Puzzle Platformer on December 7th Drawn to Life: Two Realms happy. Here is the Scribblenauts-Formula turned upside down by not arbitrary items, but arbitrary characters of the puzzle should be the solution.
