2018 is drawing to a close, but gamers are left with plenty of amazing titles to dive into during the holiday season. And playing some of the best games of the year with the right headset is like pairing a gourmet meal with a fine wine. By bringing out the different sounds and nuances, the perfect headset can elevate already excellent games to all new levels of immersion.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Surviving as an Old West outlaw takes strength and endurance. Being crack shot with a flexible moral code helps too. With Red Dead Redemption 2 players as they go on heists, explore the vast open world, and try to stay one step ahead of the law. All of it is tied to a story that is poignant, detailed, and action-packed.
But helping the Van der Linde gang and escape from a life of crime is no easy task. It will take hours to collect resources, obtain weapons, and make money. To fully experience each click and blast from action rifles and revolvers, using the Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 and SuperAmp is the best way to go. With its comfort driven design, the combination transports gamers to the Wild West. At the same time, the SuperAmp lets players stay connected to the modern world through Bluetooth connectivity, which allows for personalized settings, music streaming, and taking calls while gaming.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Discovering the wonders of Ancient Greece is just the beginning is just one reason to embark on this truly epic journey. Blending together history and mythology in an adventure that is shaped by the player’s decisions, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey offers an expansive experience that will test players skills as they take down both monsters and men.
The sheer scope of the game, which spans both land and sea, is a wonder in itself. That’s why the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 for Xbox One makes for the perfect companion headset. The wireless headset features over 15 hours of battery life to keep you on your odyssey without interruption. Also, situational awareness is imperative, whether you’re in combat, stealthily taking out enemies from the shadows, or hunting mythological beasts. By utilizing the Windows Sonic Surround Sound to create the perfect sound stage, players won’t miss a single beat as they carve a name for themselves in history.
God of War
In God of War, players are introduced to a new Kratos. He may have softened a little to take care of his son Atreus, and he’s in a new world of Norse Mythology, but he still maintains plenty of hard-hitting godlike power. It’s a story that’s as touching and dramatic as it is brutal, brought to life with exceptional voice acting and a complex cast of characters.
To catch every line of dialogue along with each satisfying crunch from the magical axe, Leviathan, we recommend using the Turtle Beach Stealth 700 headset for PlayStation 4. Its DTS Headphone:X 7.1 surround sound technology keeps players immersed while the active noise canceling technology blocks unwanted sound from the outside world. All this lets players remain focused on watching the Katros’ drama unfold.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
With a massive roster that spans the Nintendo universe while including characters from Mega Man, Street Fighter, Final Fantasy, and others, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is one of the most comprehensive fighting games in existence. But even with a cast of over 70 characters, each with unique moves and styles, the game remains as accessible as ever. So, everyone including casual players, newcomers, and experienced players can all have a good time knocking each other around.
For gamers who like to take their Nintendo Switch consoles on the go, the Turtle Beach Battle Buds make the ideal accessory. These compact, light, and versatile earbuds deliver crystal-clear sound while its built-in inline microphone or removable boom mic keeps players connected with each other during matches.
Forza Horizon 4
Between the roar of the engine, the gorgeous vistas, and driving a variety of cars at top speeds, Forza Horizon 4 provides the ultimate racing experience. The newest open-world racing game features a shared online world and changing seasons that bring spectacular visuals.
The Turtle Beach Stealth 700 for Xbox One, with its direct-to-Xbox One wireless connection, Windows Sonic Surround Sound, and active noise cancellation will let players hear every rumble and tire squeal as they speed through each racing event. The headset has the muscle to match the most powerful vehicles Forza Horizon 4 has to offer. Or you can just sit back and drive while listening to the heart-thumping music through these premium headphones.
Armed superhuman agility, strength, and plenty of webbing, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man swings in to protect New York City. Praised as one of the best superhero games ever made, Marvel’s Spider-Man masterfully captures the fast-paced action and humor the wall-crawler is famous for. The all-original story puts players into Peter Parker’s shoes as he tries to balance his crime-fighting life with his civilian one. All the while, he has to stop supervillains such as Electro, Rhino, and Scorpion from tearing the city apart.
The Turtle Beach Stealth 300 for PS4 is an essential part of a web slinger’s arsenal. With over 40 hours of battery life and comfortable memory foam cushions, players can swing across the city all day long. Plus, the headset’s amplified audio allows players to hear every kick, punch, and one-liner. It’s almost like having a spidey-sense tingling as players defeat fight crime.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
With a variety of game modes that include everything from battle royale to zombies, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is almost like having three games packed in one. The multiplayer-only focus allowed the developers to create one of the best battle royale games to date. All of it is tied together with the signature Black Ops style, which includes high-tech weaponry and cybernetic soldiers.
But whether it’s surviving Blackout or taking out hordes of zombies, players wearing the Turtle Beach Atlas Three headset will have an advantage. Compatible with PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 the Atlas Three brings amplified Windows Sonic for headphones surround sound. It also delivers crystal-clear chat to every Blackout match to better coordinate with teammates.
Honorable Mentions: Fortnite and Overwatch
Although both Fortnite and Overwatch released before 2018, both games hit major strides this year. Both competitive shooters demand high situational awareness. When escorting a payload or fighting for a control point in Overwatch, the Turtle Beach Elite Atlas headset can help lead to victory. It offers pro-level PC performance with premium-tuned sound for esports-level communications along with long-lasting comfort.
Meanwhile, Fortnite players should look to the Turtle Beach Recon 200, which is compatible with PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. The headset’s amplified audio and high-sensitivity, flip-to-mute microphone ensures that commands are always heard.
