Hitman is getting a new, and free, mission next week called 'Holiday Hoarders'. In it players will revisit the city of Paris, but this time one filled with Christmas trees, snow, decorations and presents. And keeping with the holiday spirit, assassinate a few people. Wait a second, that doesn't sound right. Assassinate a few people with an axe whilst dressed as Santa. Better.
For just about every MMO, one of the most requested features is the ability to buy a house, decorate it, fill it up with loot, and then invite people over for a virtual party. And as of sometime in February, those that play The Elder Scrolls Online will be able to do just that. With the added bonus of filling up a kitchen with Sweet Rolls.
With a release date of March 2017 we don't have to wait too much longer for the open world co-op action of Ghost Recon Wildlands. The new game from Ubisoft looks pretty good, and aims to offer up a lot of freedom in how you choose to tackle a particular mission -- which the latest trailer demonstrates. And judging by the option we get to see my money's on infiltration by the way of luxury Italian sports car.
On December 13, which probably means the December 14 for us down here in Futureworld. The announcement came via a tweet with an animated GIF inviting players to an Overwatch holiday event, showcasing a snowy version of the King's Row map.

As Obsidian Entertainment's follow-up to the wonderfully old-school Pillars of Eternity, Tyranny throws players into a world where the battle between good and evil has long since passed. Evil won, and it's now up to the people to get in line and live under the rule of the mysterious Overlord Kyros. It's definitely a great concept for an RPG, and in terms of story Tyranny certainly delivers. And then some.
Our pals over at Vooks posted up a bit of a classic EB Games snafu earlier today, revealing a bunch of Nintendo Switch accessories well and truly ahead of when they were likely allowed to. Most of it is standard stuff, but an image featuring a USB-C cable has many pondering if this is how Switch will be charged and would be a massive first for Nintendo to standardise parts of their hardware.
After being shutdown earlier in the year, vanilla WoW PvP and PvE servers 'Nostalrius' will return December 17. The news comes after a recent stress-test that saw an impressive 10,000 concurrent players role-playing like it was the year 2004. After the recent shutdown a large vocal community displayed their support for Nostalrius, so much so that the team were invited over to Blizzard HQ where they spent considerable time talking to the veteran developer.
Announced over the weekend, thanks to a new extended gameplay trailer, both Morrigan and Captain America have been added to the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite roster. Two staple characters that you probably could have guessed would be included, but it's nice to know. The Marvel vs. Capcom games have a long history of extensive characters to choose from, and with six announced so far expect to see a lot more reveals in the lead up to its 2017 release.
Given that it was only released a short while ago, Sony has already taken the lion's share of the Virtual Reality (VR) market thanks to the release of the PlayStation VR headset.

With the Oculus Rift coming in second with 11%, and the HTV Vive trailing both Google and Samsung with 6%.
