We've already had a great year for gaming, but the run up to Christmas is when things get totally insane.

Some of those games have already shipped in the last few weeks, including Forza Horizon 3, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Gears of War 4, and all of the big PlayStation VR launch games.

But there's plenty more coming between now and 25 December, along with the PlayStation 4 Pro console to boot.

Ready to whip your wish list into shape?

Here's a look at what we think is still worth anxiously awaiting for the rest of the year, spanning consoles, PCs, VR headsets, and even Nintendo 3DS and mobile.

Given how late we are in the year, we've cut down the current list to 20 picks - but we'll be back up to a full stack of 30 when we roll over to 2017's most anticipated games before the calendar page falls.

Gears of War 4 s campaign is taking a page out of the original trilogy s book, with an emphasis on atmosphere and incredible environmental set pieces to add pizazz to sections in between gunfights, and a new campaign walk-through video has us thinking that the series is in very good hands at The Coalition.

As protagonist JD Fenix and his squad of soldiers — Del and Kait — wander Sera in search of Kait s missing mother, the mission gives us a moment to just take in the beauty of the not Earth planet.

Enormous rock formations are covered in moss and trees, and an eerie nighttime glow casts dark shadows on the soldiers as they move forward.

After spotting a dead COG serviceman who has long since expired, the team move through a cave covered in Locust pods and spot an enormous wind flare on the other side.

Of course, as soon as the team attempts to escape the wind flare s path of destruction, the Locust Swarm attack and we get a taste of Gears of War 4 s buttery smooth gunplay.

Melee kills are also a brutal as ever, with JD pulling out a knife and slicing an enemy multiple times before charging forward.

Overwatch and Destiny aren t the only big games getting into the holiday spirit with special events, Microsoft s Gears of War 4 has its own snow-themed gameplay rolling out.

Dubbed Gearsmas, GoW4 s event includes lots of holiday-appropriate cosmetic items, along with a new and unique Snowball Fight play mode.

The event is live now for all GoW4 players, and will run until January 4th.

As far as new things for players to do, Gearsmas main attraction is the Snowball Fight mode.

Players are given the Snowshot, a holiday version of the Boomshot weapon, which fires explosive snowballs.

The mode plays with team deathmatch rules, with players only carrying up to 2 snowballs, and to keep it in tune with real snowball fights, they ll have to hustle to grab more snow ammo.

Based on Gears of War 4, the first game in the franchise made for Xbox One, the answer is to stay the course.

As you may or may not have heard, Gears of War 4 follows series protagonist Marcus Fenix son, JD, and his squadmates, Del and Kait, who have deserted the COG military.

On the way, they encounter resistance strange, bone-white Locust-like creatures that hatch out cocoons of pink goo, which seem to be everywhere.

The new team, either because they re younger or confronted with new horrors, seem less sure.

Gears 4 also brings back a mechanical concept from the original Gears, the enemy-generating emergence hole.

Using them that way can be a risky proposition: The cocoons explode after taking enough damage, hurting and stunning you.

Another major console exclusive is arriving next week in the form of Gears of War 4, and you know what that means: Conan O Brien is back with another installment of Clueless Gamer.

This time, Conan has brought along Wiz Khalifa to help him battle against the Locust Horde, and things get a little smoky.

SEE ALSO: Samsung might actually be facing a second Galaxy Note 7 recall

As always, Aaron Bleyaert attempts to explain the plot of the game, and as always, Conan gets bored immediately.

So rather than sit around listening to Aaron, Conan and Wiz jump into the Gears of War 4 campaign.

Conan is pretty much useless as a co-op partner, but Wiz actually holds his own.

Canadian developer The Coalition has outlined a number of tweaks, fixes, and changes coming to Gears of War 4 s online multiplayer component this week, revealing that players will see greater and more frequent rewards for their efforts.

Tuesday marks the launch of a server-side update for Gears of War 4 that increases the amount of credits earned from multiplayer matches and customization-focused Gear Packs will now be awarded more frequently.

Gears of War 4 is the latest entry in Microsoft s third-person shooter franchise, following up on a successful series of releases for the Xbox 360.

Developed by Gears of War: Ultimate Edition porting studio The Coalition, Gears of War 4 marks the franchise s Xbox One and Windows 10 debut while setting its core narrative 25 years after the events of Gears of War 3.

During beta phases in the weeks leading up to Gears of War 4 s retail launch, franchise fans approached The Coalition with concerns regarding multiplayer progression and payouts.

Notably, pre-release players noted that Gear Packs — which award randomly assigned character customization items and skins — were issued infrequently, giving fans little incentive to take on multiple matches in a row.

The fourth anticipated entry in Microsoft s blockbuster sci-fi action franchise, Gears of War 4, is finally here.

Set a full 25 years after the conclusion of Gears of War 3 and the demise of the Locust Horde, Gears of War 4 thrusts players into an all-new conflict against a hostile race of creatures known as the Swarm as new protagonist and son of Marcus Fenix and Anya Stroud, J.D.

The PC edition of Gears of War 4 offers a visually stunning experience and looks best if you re playing on powerful hardware.

Gamers who want to take full advantage of the new Gears detailed next-gen visuals will want a fairly high-end GPU.

To meet the minimum specs to run Gears of War 4 on PC, Microsoft recommends a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti for 1920x1080 visuals.

If you want to crank up its visual fidelity further the GTX 1060 is recommended for 2560x1440 gaming.

Microsoft s first Xbox One S hardware bundle has been revealed and if you re a Gears of War fan, you ll certainly want to check this out.

With the Xbox One S Gears of War 4 Limited Edition bundle, Microsoft said it utilized advances in technology and manufacturing techniques to really free up their imagination.

The idea was to create something that looks as if it was fresh out of battle; to do that, they used laser etching to simulate scratches and even a bloody thumbprint on the controller s metallic D-pad.

The bundle includes the console itself with a 2TB hard drive, a Gears of War 4 Crimson Omen Limited Edition wireless controller and a full game download of Gears of War 4: Ultimate Edition for both Xbox One and Windows 10.

It doesn t end there, however, as buyers also get a Gears of War 4 Season Pass featuring the exclusive Vintage VIP Pack, permanent access to future multiplayer maps for private games, six additional Gear Packs including the Vintage JD Gear Pack and early previews of upcoming modes.

Gears of War 4: Ultimate Edition doesn t launch until October 11 although those who purchase the bundle will get access a few days early on October 7.

Gears of War 4 is an underrated shooter, and now you can try it absolutely free.

The Coalition did an admirable job of moving the Gears of War series forward with Gears of War 4, delivering a horror-inspired campaign and a great competitive multiplayer component.

If you haven’t picked the game up yet, you’re in for a treat — a free trial is available right now, offering access to all of its modes.

From June 9 until June 15, both Xbox One and PC players can download the trial version of Gears of War 4 and play for up to 10 hours.

The trial will let you play through the first act of the campaign — about 20 percent of the total story — and allows you to play Horde mode and competitive multiplayer as much as you want.

The trial comes just in time for Gears of War 4‘s latest update, “Rise of the Horde.” In addition to new Horde skills and loot drops, the update also adds additional difficulty levels.

If you re looking to drop some cash on Microsoft s upgraded Xbox One S console when it launches in August, you may want to wait for an upcoming limited edition version that bundles in an early-access copy of Gears of War 4, among other exclusive bonuses.

Microsoft s upcoming Gears of War 4-themed Xbox One S console bundle also includes a laser-etched limited edition console and a uniquely themed controller, giving Gears of War fanatics incentive to invest in the hardware upgrade.

The console itself sports a blood-red color scheme and claw-like etchings across its exterior.

The included controller follows suit with similar coloring and branding, setting itself apart from previously issued Xbox One controllers with a distinct red D-pad and a Gears of War series logo.

Additional digital bonuses bundled with the package include codes for Gears of War 4 weapon skins, character outfits, multiplayer lobby emblems, and Gear packs that award players randomly distributed in-game items.

Gears of War 4 was one of the top exclusives for the Xbox One last year, but if you didn't pick it up then you're back in luck.

You'll be able to grab it now for the cheapest price we've seen so far.

Both Amazon UK and Game are selling Gears of War 4 on Xbox One for only £19.99.

How long the deal will last is currently unclear, so be sure to grab it as soon as possible if you're in the mood for a blood-soaked shooter.

Gears of War 4 comes with all the monster grinding action you've become accustomed to in the series, but is set 25 years after the end of the last game.

The beloved Marcus Felix is retired now and instead you'll be playing as J.D.

Gears of War 4 got a lengthy showing at Gamescom 2016.

COLOGNE, Germany—Changing the formula of a respected, successful franchise is a risky business, and first impressions of Gears of War 4's DeeBees highlight the problem.

This new robotic race of enemies, seemingly named by the director of a children's television show, flank and shoot like the Locust we're used to, but the aesthetic difference is difficult to warm to.

They can jump low when navigating over cover, and if they get close they turn suicide bomber and explode.

The smaller of the two walkers I saw tended to attack only in packs, their role seemingly focused on herding you into tight spots from which their larger siblings could deal the real damage and force you into a compromising position.

If you're too close to them when they jump over cover you become stunned for a moment, which is enough time for them to blow up and take you out.

We re less than two weeks out from the launch of Gears of War 4, and if you remain on the fence about whether or not you ll pick the game up, Microsoft is hoping that new gameplay video might sway you.

This isn t a typical trailer, though, as Microsoft and developer The Coalition actually take us through the game s prologue missions.

The whole thing lasts around 20 minutes, showing off three different missions in the process.

Those who are worried about spoilers may not have much to be concerned about, as the missions on display are actually a look back at some of the battles that have defined the Gears of War series thus far.

There s even one mission that offers players a glimpse at the Pendulum Wars, a conflict that has yet to be the focus of a Gears of War title.

Still, for those who want to go in completely unspoiled, it s probably best to give this one a skip.
