This Week in Games: Dec 11 – 16

Animatronic horror in VR, the LEGO game we should have expected and free DLC for your favourite God of War are the handful of games that we picked up on our radar for maybe the last this week in games for the year. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

In a pretty short week for big titles we have to first mention a quick sneaky release last week that will probably occupy most of your Christmas Holidays with LEGO Fortnite. Not a set but an actual LEGO + Fortnite game, this is free to play and available on most platforms but unlike main Fortnite this drops you in a randomly generated island in a coop build like mode (ok it is like Minecraft, but LEGO and Fortnite). Oh and it is already out.

And jumping to Friday for those who love both VR and Five Nights at Freddy’s is the sequel to the first VR outing with Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted 2. Coming out on just Steam VR this week but heading to PSVR2 soon this is much more of what you are expecting but set at Freddy’s sister location with fan favourite areas making a return.

Honourable Mention: And lastly our honourable mention this week goes to our favourite type of DLC, Free (if you already own God of War Ragnarök). Unveiled as part of the game awards last week Valhalla iis the free epilogue to the main game with Kratos only being accompanied by the severed head of Mimir. This is out for you to play from Thursday if you have the main game.

If you bought any of these on the release day, tell us how it went! Also, as always did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments
