Ubisoft’s famous open-world, first-person shooter returns on Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. Set in the Himalayan region in a village of Kyrat, you play as Ajay Ghale, who returns there to scatter his mother’s ashes as her dying wish.

You fight alongside a rebellion known as the Golden Path to take back Kyrat from Pagan.

Developers tacked on co-op mode, and you get to share your stories on the game and survive the wilderness, take back outposts and liberate bell towers. Be on the lookout for this game this holiday season.

Sony’s famous exclusive has returned for Playstation 3 and Playstation 4. Sackboy and friends must stop the evil creator Newton and the three evil titans from destroying the universe.

Level creations have returned and three new breeds of sack people have now joined. Oddsock, a dog that can run faster and also jump on walls. Swoop can fly to pick up objects and even lift characters to get them up to where they need to go. And Toggle, a sack person, can turn himself big to trigger pressure plates or small so he can swim and fit through tight spaces. This is a game that everyone can enjoy — both adults and children.

Christmas season is near and if you’re looking for the hottest titles for the gamer in your life, all of these titles are bound to please.
