The last month of the year has a lot in store, as plenty of exciting games are set to come out in December. We present you the 5 most important game releases for December 2020.

After November brought us the next-gen consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, December will again be all about games. Here are the 5 most important game releases coming in December 2020.

Immortals Fenyx Rising

  • Platform: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, Switch, Stadia
  • Release: December 3

This colorful action role-playing game immerses you in the open world of Greek mythology and is from the creators of Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. Gods & Monsters, the game's former name, tells the story of the heroine Fenyx, who must help Zeus destroy his arch-enemy Typhon.

The fact that Immortals Fenyx Rising is visually very reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and already made an excellent impression in the demo version, fuels our anticipation for the exciting adventure.

El Hijo - A Wild West Valley

  • Platform: PC
  • Release: December 3

El Hijo is a picturesque strategy game that takes you to the Wild West from an isometric perspective. Spaghetti westerns in the style of Sergio Leone served as a model for the Berlin-based developer Honig Studios. The game uses a stealth approach because your only chance to succeed will be striking from the shadows.

El Hijo was awarded as the best indie game at Gamescom and should be a real treat for PC-savvy genre fans.


  • Platform: PlayStation 5
  • Release: December 8

If you like Pokémon, you'll be happy with Temtem, too. In this MMO role-playing game, which takes you to the Airborne Archipelago, a monster hunt awaits you with exciting battles and funny missions - just like in the Nintendo template.

Temtem has been in early access on the PC for some time now, and, in early December, PlayStation 5 monster hunters will be able to tie their boots - the other consoles will have to wait until next year.

Cyberpunk 2077

  • Platform: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
  • Release: December 10

On December 10, the time has finally come: but this time for real! The open-world Sci-Fi-RPG Cyberpunk 2077 is perhaps the most anticipated game of the year. After all, the makers of The Witcher from CD Project Red have put together a mammoth project that has the potential to outshine anything that has ever been seen before.

Some time ago we were able to play the PC version and were simply blown away by the sheer amount of details and possibilities. The starting signal will be fired on December 10 - the next-gen version for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, however, will not be available until 2021. We certainly hope that the waiting will be worth it.

Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond

  • Platform: PC
  • Release: December 11

Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind Apex Legends and Titanfall, will revitalize the legendary Medal of Honor series. That alone is reason enough to rejoice. What's also exciting is that Above and Beyond is a VR shooter that transports you directly into the action of World War II on your PC. An authentic World War II shooter? In VR? We are so ready.

With these highlights, the gaming year 2020 is coming to an end. As always, you can read more about gaming and esports at EarlyGame. We have some last-minute Christmas ideas and show you to the 5 best gaming smartphones.
