Today In Games: 'Overwatch', 'Elder Scrolls Online' and 'Mass Effect'

Your daily need to know on releases, rumors and everything that matters – all in one place

Holidays are coming, and so are fantasy homes and genuinely exciting Mass Effect novels. Everyone at Sony is celebrating exciting new numbers, even Steve in finance, and there's an unexpected trailer for The Last Guardian.

Get ready for Overwatch to get festive on December 13. Its studio Blizzard tweeted a hint that we can expect our halls to be decked. We're hoping for Christmas themed loot boxes, skins, emotes and special dialogue. Tracer cranking out lines from Dickens' A Christmas Carol would be perfect.

Sales numbers are boring until they're massive, so give a small nod to Sony for the news that the more than 50 million PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro's have been sold around the world.

More details have been revealed for the Homestead expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online. The update is free, due out in February and it will add real estate to the fantasy MMO. Yep, you'll soon be able to own your own home and kit it out with 2,000 furniture and décor choices.

N. K. Jemisin and Catherynne M. Valente, two seriously kickass authors, have signed up to write Mass Effect novels. Mass Effect: Annihilation will be out in summer from Valente, who wrote Radiance and Mass Effect: Initiation by N. K. Jemisin - author of the awesome The Fifth Season - will be out in fall.

Naughty Dog has revealed more of the tattoo Ellie was sporting in The Last Of Us Part 2 announcement trailer. It was designed by Natalie Hall, who also acted as the hand model for the trailer, and features a giant moth. Any entomologists out there want to give us a guess at the species? We don't know our Acherontia from our Opodiphthera.

Finally PlayStation in the UK has created a special The Last Guardian trailer that's worth checking out.
