If you still have some 2019 games left, hurry up to finish them soon because in 2020 not only will the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles arrive, but many irresistible titles. From long-term franchises, including some that we have not seen in more than a decade, to completely original games, we tell you what are the most anticipated video games of 2020 of the main studios. From now we suggest you start saving, for your wallet does not suffer when they go on sale.
Dreams (PS4 – February 14)
Media Molecule helped revolutionize user-created content in console games with its series LittleBigPlanetbut the study is taking things much further with Dreams Available from 2019 on early access but with the official launch on February 14, Dreams It allows you to create almost any type of game you want, including first-person shooting games, platforms, narrative adventures and racing games. The campaign itself was even designed on a PS4 using the DualShock 4 controller, and the creations we have already seen are amazing.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps (Xbox One, PC – March 11)
Sequel to one of the most acclaimed Xbox One games, Ori and the Will of the Wisps It was announced an eternity ago, but we prefer Moon Studios to take the time it takes to create a compelling Metroidvania game to launch something in a hurry. As in the first game, the user plays as the starting character and the areas are explored using new skills, later returning to unlock previously hidden sections. The magnificent art style of the game is now even more detailed.
Nioh 2 (PS4 – March 13)
The first Nioh It was a surprise for how well I managed to take the From Software formula and turn it into an elegant action game. In some ways, even super to the series Souls with their creative bosses but Nioh 2 You cannot afford to lower expectations. As you fight the Yokai mortuary and improve your skills, you can become the ultimate killing machine of the Sengoku era and temporarily become a Yokai again to deal devastating blows.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Switch – March 20)
It's not about Mario, Zelda or Pokmon, but there are very few Nintendo franchises that get players excited as much as Animal crossing. In his first game on Switch, in Animal Crossing: New HorizonsThe series moves to a holiday setting where your character has free to customize an island at will. It still contains all the classic elements of Animal crossing, but even more variety of activities and more options for multiplayer. The famous characters in the game like Tom Nook have never looked better, and we are looking forward to deeply indebting ourselves after buying a house.
Eternal Doom (Xbox One, PS4, PC – March 20)
Who could have thought that the series Doom Will it still be relevant in 2020? After the excellent reboot of 2016, Id Software didn't have much more to prove in a sequel, but Eternal Doom It's not just more of the same. Doom Slayer now has blades built into his suit to kill demons more efficiently, he can shoot himself from a special BFG can and has a grab hook to move at lightning speed. As in Doom II, much of the game takes place on Earth and, once you have completed the campaign, you can try the asymmetric multiplayer mode that confronts Doom Slayer with multiple demons in a fight to the death.
Half-Life: Alyx (PC VR – March date undetermined)
Half-Life 3? Not quite, but Half-Life: Alyx, exclusive to Valve's virtual reality, is the first new game in the series in more than a decade. Located between the original and Half-Life 2, is an action game with first-person RV with some of the most impressive images we have ever seen in a virtual reality helmet. That fidelity means that you need a beastly computer to get the most out of it, but having the opportunity to unravel the last chapter of Valve's mysterious series of shooting games is too tempting to let it pass. Start buying new components now and your PC may be ready for launch!
Resident Evil 3 (Xbox One, PS4, PC – April 3)
After the success of the new version of Resident Evil 2 In 2019, Capcom continues with a new full version of Resident Evil 3 in 2020. The game will be a completely updated version of Jill Valentine's classic action and horror game, with the villain Nmesis returning to scare you every time you think about taking a break. In addition to remakealso include Resident Evil: Resistance, an asymmetric multiplayer game that allows a player to unleash hordes of enemies and catch human survivors.
Final Fantasy VII Remake (PS4 – April 10)
The name is a bit inappropriate because in reality it is only the first part of an episode release, but Final Fantasy VII Remake It will be officially launched in March, and it looks not insignificant. With the same story as the original PlayStation game but with a completely new combat system that blurs the line between the action and the role-playing game similar to Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy VII Remake It seems that both newcomers and fans of the series like both, as long as we do not end up waiting several more years for the complete game is over.
Gears Tactics (PC – April 28)
Following the steps of the strategy game Halo Wars Gears of War take the leap of shooting in third person with Gears Tactics. Launched first on PC, although getting to Xbox One later, Gears Tactics It is a strategy game similar to XCOM which takes place in turn-based combat and tells the beginning of the Lobster War. It's not the same Gears of War that you know, but it seems to be an intelligent and attractive turn of the franchise and has a 40-hour campaign without microtransactions. Also available for free for those who have an Xbox Game Pass for PC.
Marvel’s Iron Man VR (PS4 – May 15)
Marvel’s Iron Man VR, the first of the two 2020 video games that will allow you to play as the legendary Iron Man superhero, is the only one that will allow you to be Iron Man. The first-person virtual reality game puts you in his famous suit, with two PlayStation Move controls that allow you to fly through the air and use their unique gadgets and skills. You can completely improve your armor and also learn more about Tony Stark as a person, instead of knowing him only in his facet of technology mogul and Earth defender.
The Last of Us: Part II (PS4 – May 29)
Naughty Dog took his time to develop The Last of Us: Part II, but given the high standards he set for himself with the original game, it is understandable. The sequel is carried out by an Ellie several years older, who joins the father figure of Joel in a post-apocalyptic world, still on the verge of collapse of infected humans. It seems to be even darker than the first game and we can see a more tragic game for the heroes … if you can call them at this point.
Marvels Avengers (Xbox One, PS4, PC, Stadia – September 4)
We promised that there will be another Iron Man game in 2020 and this one comes courtesy of Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix. The action and adventure game, which stars the Avengers, which includes Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Black Widow, Thor and more, takes place after a tragic event that led to the dissolution of the organization. However, new threat forces them to reactivate. Alongside the traditional content, there will be an element of live service and cooperative play.
Cyberpunk 2077 (Xbox One, PS4, PC, Stadia – September 17)
CD Projekt Red is best known for its game triloga Witcher, but is venturing into a completely new territory with Cyberpunk 2077. Amazing? We'll see! This adaptation of the Cyberpunk board role game changes to a first-person perspective and throws us into an impressive futuristic world, loaded with missions and story options to complete. In its favor, it has a digitized Keanu Reeves, but even without John Wick himself, we are sure that we will invest hours in this game.
Ghost of Tsushima (PS4)
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Y Nioh they offer fantastic versions of the feudal combat of Japan and samurai, but Sucker Punch is taking a very different approach with Ghost of Tsushima. The cinematographic presentation is largely inspired by director Akira Kurosawa, with magnificent surroundings and stylized and fast sword strokes. Very few studies can match the production quality of Sucker Punch.
Dying Light 2 (Xbox One, PS4, PC, PS5, Scarlett Project)
You expected legendary role-playing designer Chris Avellone to have a role in a sequel to Dying light? Probably not, but we are happy that he is involved. Dying Light 2 Techland is drastically different from the original game, with a changing world and a more sophisticated layered narration. If the study can do it, it could be one of the best games of the whole year.
Halo Infinite (Xbox One, PC, Scarlett Project)
343 Industries needs to revive Halo in a big way With Halo 5: Guardiansfailed to reinvigorate a franchise that has been in decline since the original developer Bungie abandoned it almost a decade ago. With Halo Infinite, that might turn out, since the studio is focusing on Master Chief in a large-scale science fiction shooting adventure that seems to better understand why players fell in love with Halo. Cross-game support and a new powerful engine should also help show the technical feat of the next Xbox system, as well.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (Xbox One, PS4, Switch, PC)
Star Wars movies have adapted to multiple video games over the years, but they are divided into systems, some of which have not aged particularly well. With Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, each main movie adapts to a huge and extensive video game that acts as a perfect piece for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. However, it keeps intact the classic humor of the Lego series, and we would not want it any other way.
Psychonauts 2 (PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac)
S, Psychonauts 2 it is real. And now that the developer Double Fine Productions is owned by Microsoft, we don't have to worry about the game being canceled before launch. Starring the hero Raz and set in a world where psychic powers are real, it is a title that fans have hoped to experience since the successful first version arrived in 2005. It certainly has a lot at stake, but Psychonauts 2 It seems to be a worthy successor.
Tom Clancys Rainbow Six Quarantine (Xbox One, PS4, PC)
Zombie shooting action in a Tom Clancy game? Sounds weird, but that's what Ubisoft is doing with Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Quarantine. Instead of making a sequel to the competitive multiplayer game Rainbow Six Siege, this shooter confronts the world's lite operations against humans infected by alien parasites. You must learn new tactics and strategies to destroy them. It is very far from Rainbow six, but it's nothing if it's not surprising.
Watch Dogs: Legion (PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia, PS5, Project Scarlett)
Watch Dogs: Legion Not only is it the third installment, but it is a complete reinvention of what is possible in the Watch Dogs universe. Set in London, Legion It has no protagonists: you can play with anyone you meet in the open world, from street thugs to grandmothers with a special ability to hack. If they die once, they leave forever, and you go on to play as another character. This tremendously ambitious concept is directed by director Clint Hocking, who exhibits games like Far cry 2 Y Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory in your curriculum
Yakuza: Like a Dragon (PS4)
Yes, finally in 2019 arrived Shenmue III, but for some years the series Yakuza de Sega replaced that title as a better alternative. In the last game, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the development team assumes a great risk by switching combat to a turn-based role-playing style. Although it seems like an odd adjustment in a series known for fighting, it seems that Yakuza keep shining What does not change are the great characters and storytelling, in addition to a ton of strange minigames, as always.
SkateBIRD (Switch, PC)
In Skateboard, you are a boring pet bird that should be entertained in your owner's house with a variety of objects, such as straws and staplers. With your little and adorable skateboard, you can become the next legend of extreme sports and even attract other birds to visit your makeshift park. Everything is backed by a loud "bird jumping" soundtrack, and you can even pick up little outfits for your bird.
