Believe it or not, we're now in the final month of 2021 and looking ahead to the new year. Pretty much all of this year's major games for PlayStation 5 and PS4 are out, and it seems as though things will be quietening down in December and January. That's not to say there's nothing to look forward to, though — as always, there are plenty of exciting titles on the horizon. Let's have a look, shall we?

Chorus - 3rd December
Chorus, or CHORVS if you wanna get serious about it, was announced during an Xbox event last year, but is indeed making its way to PS5 and PS4 too. This is a "true evolution of the space-combat shooter", with gameplay mostly putting you in the cockpit of a nimble (and sentient) space fighter taking down the baddies in colourful, bombastic shootouts. It also leans into its story, with protagonist Nara on a quest to exact revenge on a dangerous cult. Not many are talking about this game, but it could be a sleeper hit.
Among Us - 21st December
What more is there to say about Among Us? InnerSloth's social deduction game exploded in popularity and has been slowly coming to other platforms since, with PS5 and PS4 finally getting a slice of the pie this month. In addition to the digital version, you can pick up various physical releases, complete with all sorts of retail exclusive goodies. Stop acting sus and join the fun, why don't you?
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction - 20th January
Ubisoft is taking its Rainbow Six series in a new direction with Extraction, a co-op focused experience for up to three players. Your team enters a hazardous zone infested with a dangerous alien goo, and it's your job to get rid of it. With multiple Operators to play, dozens of guns to master, and a constantly changing threat, this will be an intense, strategic experience.
