Forza Horizon 4 (forzamotorsport.net/games/fh4)
Tear across the British Isles in all manner of four-wheeled vehicles, passing through craggy mountain, picturesque village, Scottish capital, and open-skied moorland, with races to win, both cars and property to acquire, and hidden motors dotted across its compressed map. The first of two paid expansions, a Orkney and Shetland composite, arrives December 13. [Digital or disc]
Sea of Thieves (seaofthieves.com)
Sail alone or join up with friends and together steer a pirate ship in search of adventure and treasure, with everyone pitching in to keep the boat afloat and a suitable home for ocean shanties. Regular updates bring new modes, challenges and seasonal themes. [Digital or disc]
Deep Rock Galactic (deeprockgalactic.com)
Set off for asteroids housing valuable minerals in among all the monsters, lava and gas pockets and, as one of four brave space dwarves, do what it takes to get out and bring the money home. Ziplines, shotguns, robotic sentries, upgrades and pickaxes number among each mission's essential items. [Digital purchase]
Pit People (pitpeople.com)
Strategy gets silly in this delightful cartoon-style affair, one which allows party members' movements to be precisely controlled, while they take care of the spell-casting, arrow-firing and general battling antics themselves. Last surviving enemies can be recruited to your team while two-player co-op scales up the possibility for creative team formation experiments. [Digital purchase]
