Now Playing: New Releases - Top Games Out This Month - December

We're finally at the end of 2017, but we've still got a couple big games left to round out the year. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Destiny 2 expansion Curse of Osiris make up the bulk of the month's major releases. A wealth of DLC is on the way, like the second and final DLC pack for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the last two story DLC packs for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Aside from the bigger games and DLC, there's also a number of VR ports and re-releases of games coming to new platforms and hardware, such as Doom VFR, Fallout 4 VR, Dead Rising 4, and Okami HD.

Here's a quick run-through of what you can expect in the month of December, along with its most notable releases. For a full list of all the big games coming out during the rest of this year, check out our comprehensive 2017 game release date list.
