Time to say Halo to supreme reboot

- Halo Infinite


Microsoft was clearly determined to make this the best game it could, pushing its release back from November 2020, to late 2021.

There are many reasons to be excited for Master Chief’s new outing, not least as Infinite is being billed as a‘spiritual reboot’for the entire Halo franchise.

The third chapter of the ‘Reclaimer Saga’, it sees Master Chief playing a more central role than in Halo 5: Guardians.

Unlike in previous titles, multiplaye­r in Infinite is free-toplay, and it’s been in open beta since mid November, to mark the franchise’s 20th anniversar­y. Whatever your plans are this month, you might want to think about cancelling them to spend some serious time with this game.

Also out just in time for Christmas is Monopoly Madness.

After the gifts have been opened, and the dinner’s been eaten it’s time to break out the Christmas Day games.

And nothing says family fun like Monopoly.

Monopoly Madness claims to reinvent the much-loved traditiona­l game, taking place while Mr Monopoly is away on holiday.

With the action set in Monopoly City, up to five players battle it out to earn enough cash to buy and upgrade their properties.

There are 20 playable characters and four different zones to tackle, meaning it will take a while for the fun to wear thin.

Available on PS4, Xbox X/S and Nintendo Switch.
