Seven Great Games of December 2018

Not a single awesome game release can ever go unnoticed by our DMarket gaming enthusiasts. While providing you with an easy and safe way to buy and sell CS:GO and Dota 2 skins, we always keep an eye on what’s on the gaming industry radar.

December 2018 isn’t nearly as fruitful for new titles as recent months which saw the groundbreaking Red Dead Redemption 2 and breathtaking Marvel’s Spider-Man. However, there are still some games to come this year which are worth your attention.

In this article, we’ll look at the top 7 games to play on PC and consoles for the remainder of the year. Some of them have already gained much traction on other platforms, whilst others are brand new to the public. In the meanwhile, you can already play some of the games from our November 2018 top list.

Just Cause 4 (PC, PS4, Xbox One - December 4)

Welcome again to the dangerous yet enticing world of Rico Rodriguez, your favorite bold undercover agent! Operating behind enemy lines in a distant South American country is no piece of cake. Surprisingly, there is more excitement at taking part in his new adventures, rather than fear for the life of this relentless mercenary.

This time around, Rico Rodriguez has to take down the illegal military organization the Black Hand and all its kingpins. The new sequel takes on the story of the famous series, and will definitely surprise its fans with far smarter NPCs and unbelievably realistic natural phenomena effects of blizzards, sandstorms, lightning, tornadoes and other impressive weather experiences.

Now you have a great chance to pre-order one of the three edition packs with more than enough in-game goodies inside via the official game website.

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom (PC, NS, Xbox One, PS4 - December 4)

Platform games are what stole the hearts of old-time gamers once and forever. Now a younger generation can join the fan club with a new amusing title to roll out this December. Like the old hands who used to jump and dodge while playing some of the best Platform titles ever, you can now participate in a modern vibrant side-scrolling adventure video game for PC and consoles.

This game is action-driven in every sense of the word, so stop thinking how to equip your character like in RPG titles, or building a strategy as in Dota 2. Just make yourself comfortable and enjoy the amazing gameplay!

The best way to pre-order this game right now is via the official website.

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden (PC, Xbox One, PS4 - December 4)

Have you ever played a tactical shooter game as an animal-like character? Still think all mutants should look like the sissy ninja turtles? Nah.

Have a look at the most blood-chilling mutants ever – meet Bormin, Dux and Selma! Leverage their unique abilities to overwhelm hordes of robotic mechanisms with rocket launchers, stealth tactics, and heavy airstrikes.

The title is set for release this December, and expected to be a great combination of a turn-based strategy video game with a branching storyline and immersive gameplay.

You can choose from two editions to pre-order today through the game website.

Insurgency: Sandstorm (PC – December 12)

No other multiplayer FPS can boast such intense gameplay, realistic close-quarter combat and tactical teamwork as Insurgence did in 2014, except perhaps CS:GO.

Now all eyes are on its sequel with even deadlier weapons, more real-life environments and improved AI for the story mode.

Together with a new thought-out story mode, the game is expected to feature an eSports framework, which can attract lots of professional players from all around the world. All in all, this used-to-be an Indie title but now has got every chance to have the warmest welcome from the gaming community.

The PC version is available to pre-order on the game’s page on Steam.
