Best Video Games For Winter Vacation – Virtual Weathers To Enjoy In Boring Winter Times

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

If you like to explore islands and track ancient treasures, and if you love watching Pirates Of The Caribbean, then Ubisoft’s latest effort in the Assassin’s Creed franchise is your game to play during this winter vacation. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is a game that could be equally enjoyed by a hardcore fan of the series as well as some one who is experiencing the series for the first time.

Central character of the tale is Edward Kenway, a young noble pirate and an adventurer who turns more principled as he journeys across the Caribbean exploring picturesque lush Islands and fighting ship-to-ship battles. The game is highly detailed, everything seems to be right on spot. From taking a walk in a city or going against waves in your sail, every activity in the game has a surprisingly pleasant effect. You can engage in battles with other pirate vessels, enjoy looting, go deep beneath water to explore wrecked ships, search for hidden treasures, upgrade your vessel, the Jackdaw, to make it even more stronger and much more. If you are getting tired sailing, you can land ashore and have a walk along with citizens.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is available on all current and next-gen consoles and PC, the game is equally immersive on all platforms but PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions take the detailing and visuals to another level. Water, shadows, structures and characters are wonderfully detailed. Grab a copy of the game for your console this winter and begin your adventurous journey across the Caribbean.

Red Dead Redemption

Dump the cold weather and snow and try some dusty air with Rockstar’s ultimate sandbox adventure, Red Dead Redemption. The game won game of the year award in 2010 and is, of course, one of the best games of its type. The game is set in open world with miles of dusty land, pale plants and clean mountains. The devastating desert stretches around you while you ride on a horse to explore every town and village located in the west.

Red Dead Redemption takes you out in the old American west where you step into the cowboy boots of John Marston, a former outlaw who had been left for dead by his old gang. After learning his lesson well, John goes straight and turns into a family man, but his troubles find a way back to him. John’s family gets kidnapped by federal agents who force him to seek and eliminate the members of his former gang. This leaves John with no choice and he sets out to seek a dusty revenge. The game is very immersive, you can go through little towns and villages doing different stuff that keeps you busy. The whole wild west is gorgeously shaped. In-game environment is dynamic and immensely detailed. Story missions and the characters who you work with or for are full of life.

Red Dead Redemption is your complete ticket to west. The story, characters, environment and gunplay all add up to make this game very attractive. There are different modes in the game to enjoy and each one of them is worth trying. Buy this game if you want to play Gran Theft Auto in an old fashioned cowboy way.
