Posted July 04, 2018 14:00:50 Today’s top games and movies are coming to the PC and Xbox consoles, but what about the consoles themselves?
As we approach the holiday season, it’s time to look at some of the most anticipated titles of 2018.
If you have the time, we’ll cover what we’re expecting from the year ahead, and what to look out for next year.
Here’s our list of the best games, movies and TV shows coming to consoles this holiday season.
In case you’re not familiar with these titles, they’re all coming to console, which means you’ll be able to enjoy them at home with no additional charge.
The biggest game to come to the PS4 and Xbox One in 2018 is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, a sprawling RPG that’s shaping up to be one of the biggest releases of 2018 so far.
There’s also a few other noteworthy titles to look forward to, including Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, The Lego Movie and The Martian.
If the Witcher 3 is your first console purchase, you’ll want to jump on the Xbox One version right away, which has more features and has a massive amount of content to play.
The game is set to release on March 8, and you can grab the Xbox Scorpio Edition for $100 off the MSRP.
If that’s not enough, the PlayStation 4 version of The Witcher has a $30 discount off the PS3 version.
The PS4 version is also getting an extra story mode, a free DLC pack and a $10 upgrade to PlayStation Plus.
If you’re interested in a more affordable version of the game, there’s also an $80 upgrade to Xbox One for $60.
Finally, we have the biggest surprise coming for consoles this year: Star Wars: Battlefront 2, a $70 multiplayer first-person shooter set to launch in 2018.
While this isn’t quite the AAA-caliber release that many expected, Battlefront is still worth checking out if you’re a Star Wars fan.
If this game isn’t your thing, there are also other great multiplayer shooters on PS4 that will get you started.
There are a few major exclusives in store for the holiday shopping season, so if you want to keep yourself busy, here’s our best picks for what you can expect this year.
