Xbox Series X | S and Xbox One, December 2020: the best games of the month
After several postponements, Cyberpunk 2077 is finally preparing to make its debut on Xbox One in December 2020. We are talking about a particularly ambitious title, which aims to repeat and even surpass the success of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt thanks to stratospheric numbers and never so engaging gameplay.

However, this is not the only release of the month : In stores we will also find Immortals: Fenyx Rising, the new "mythological" action RPG from Ubisoft, the strategic Empire of Sin and the latest narrative adventure from Dontnod Entertainment, Twin Mirror.

In addition to the thrilling John Wick Hex, debuting on Microsoft consoles, will finally make its appearance some important updated games for the Xbox Series X | S, in this case FIFA 21, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege and Destiny 2.

Our goal will naturally be to conquer the city within thirteen years, doing our worst.

As part of a strategic XCOM-style gameplay, we will therefore have to grow our criminal organization, manage its various departments, assigning the right people to the command posts, carrying out increasingly profitable deals and of course eliminating the competition by whatever means at our disposal.
