2019 has been a great year for gaming there is still a lot to come in 2019.
2020 has got to be one of the best years for gaming. There are a lot of great games coming in 2020 as listed below:
THE SURGE 2
The Surge 2 is an upcoming action RPG game it takes a lot of inspirations from the Dark Souls series. It is to be launched on PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. The Surge was a great game in our opinion. It gave us the vibes of Dark Souls and had a nearly perfect combat system, The game had its ups and downs it was a decent game according to most of the people. The Surge 2 is launching on 24th of the September.
TOM CLANCY’S GHOST RECON BREAKPOINT
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is the upcoming Ubisoft game. It is an online-only game which means it will require an internet connection and PS+ or Xbox Live Gold. it is to be released on 4th of the October. It has a lot of RPG elements as seen in the gameplay videos. We cannot tell if its one of the best game coming out this year yet but it has a lot of hype. it will officially launch on Google Stadia, PC, PS4 and Xbox One
Concrete Genie is probably one of the best indie game coming out this year. Concrete Genie won the most awards at Gamescom. The game is made by PixelOpus it was announced all the way back in 2017 at PGW (Paris Games Week). It is an action-adventure RPG game. The Story is set in a small town named “Denska” which has been predominantly forsaken and contaminated. Ash goes on a quest to recover his pages. Along this quest, he discovers a paintbrush that can bring his creations to life. The concept of the game is really interesting and the game is unique. The game is officially coming out on 8th of October and it will only be available on PlayStation 4.
CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE
Call Of Duty Modern Warfare is a “soft reboot” of the series it’s like a remix of all the missions from the modern warfare series. The game will have highly realistic emotional moments and take inspirations from the highly controversial mission from Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 “No Russian”. The game is to be launched on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It will come out on the 25th of October. The gameplay reminds us so much of MOH: Warfighter but that is a good thing since MOH: Warfighter had great gameplay but overall it was a pretty bad game but that would not be the case with Call Of Duty Modern Warfare. The Game looks too promising and will deliver a nostalgic. Call Of Duty Modern Warfare uses a way better engine than Call Of Duty Black Ops 4. It looks way better than the previous games. Modern Warfare‘s single-player campaign will focus on realism and feature tactically-based moral choices whereupon the player is evaluated and assigned a score at the end of each level. The introduction at the start of multiplayer matches has also been revamped; while in previous titles players would remain motionless on the map as a timer would countdown to zero, players will instead be transported into the battle zone as part of various animations
THE OUTER WORLDS
The Outer Worlds is a game developed by Obsidian Entertainment (From the developers of Fallout New Vegas and Star Wars KOTOR 2. Even though Microsoft recently acquired them the game will still launch on PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch due to their deal with the publishers of the game “Private Division” which is a label owned by Take-Two (parent company of 2k and rockstar games). It will be an Epic Games Store and Microsoft Windows store exclusive as announced last year. Most of the reactions were negative to that. The Story in outer worlds is based on an alternate future that happened in 1901. When the US President William McKinley was not assassinated large business trusts to dominate society well into the future, where Big companies have begun colonizing and terraforming alien planets. The game is to be launched on 25th of the October and it has our eye on it. It could be the best game of 2019 if it is like fallout new vegas. The Creators of Fallout series are the directors of this game which hypes us even more.
LUIGI’S MANSION 3
Luigi’s Mansion 3 is officially coming out on end of the October. The gameplay is largely similar to that of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon but has a more open-ended level structure rather than the pre-defined missions of previous games in the series. Luigi is tasked with exploring a large hotel, with each floor based around a different theme, featuring a variety of atmospheres and mechanics. There is also a multiplayer component called ScareScraper that will allow for up to eight players to play together locally and online. Luigi’s Mansion 3 seems Luigi being invited to stay in a hotel alongside his friends Mario, Peach, and co. But unfortunately the hotel isn’t quite what it seems and things take a dark turn when he arrives. Some ghost guests refuse to check out and they’re not exactly friendly
MARIO & SONIC AT THE OLYMPIC GAMES TOKYO 2020
We have another major Nintendo Switch Exclusive coming out on this year’s November. They are officially collaborating with Sega. We do know that the game will include all the classic characters and even 8bit and 16bit characters which is great for retro fans. The game will include both classic 2d and 3d mini-games.

Kojima has officially stated that Death Stranding is a new type of a game. Our goal is to connect the isolated society. Our journey will unravel as we explore the world. Our story depends on the choices we make and yes you can sing in death stranding, sit whenever you want and explore a beautiful world. Death Stranding will have some great action gameplay as seen in the new gameplay. Death Stranding is officially coming out on PS4 and yes it’s an Exclusive. We can expect a great game because Hideo Kojima is involved and Actors Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux, Margaret Qualley, Tommie Earl Jenkins, Troy Baker, and Lindsay Wagner provided motion capture. According to Kojima, one of the key aspects of the announcement trailer was the idea of a connection between life and death
The Upcoming Need For Speed game looks promising, it has no loot boxes, microtransactions or whatsoever. It will be officially released on the 8th of November. NFS Heat doesn’t include a 24-hour day-night cycle but instead, players can switch between day and night. During the day, players can take part in sanctioned race events, which reward players with cash to spend on new cars and upgrades. They can also take part in illegal street races in the night, which would earn players reputation. EA also released a mobile app called “NFS Heat Studio” in which users can collect and customize their cars which can be imported into the main game upon release.
POKEMON SHIELD & SWORD
Pokemon Shield & Sword are an upcoming Nintendo Switch Exclusive coming out on 15th November. It is the first proper Pokemon game that is coming on the Nintendo Switch. Pokemon Let’s Go had Pokemon Go mechanics which most players don’t consider a proper pokemon experience. It is based on the 8th Generation of Pokemon. Many new features for the game have been introduced these include raids from Pokemon Go. There is a new mechanic called “Poke Jobs” Which allow the player to participate in several quests such as helping in some construction or cooking we can gain experience or rare goodies. A ‘Camp’ mode was introduced allowing the player to spend some time interacting or playing with their Pokémon and to cook different types of curry which provide bonuses for Pokemon.
STAR WARS JEDI FALLEN ORDER
Well, this generation Star Wars games lacked single-player content. EA has promised us that “Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order will be the best Star Wars game ever made. We think it is very possible since the game is mainly based on singleplayer. But what can make it happen? Here are the few things we think that can make Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order the best game ever Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order will have an untold story of a padawan that survived the order 66. The Story seems pretty promising since it somehow is connecting to the Saga in different ways. Darth Vader trains the Second Sister (an inquisitor) The Empire Dispatches the Second Sister to hunt down the padawan. Darth Vader is one of the most iconic villains of all time. Since Darth Vader is in the game it already has an advantage of creating the best antagonist. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is being developed by Respawn Entertainment (The Creators Of Titanfall Series and Apex Legends) Respawn Entertainment has already proved themselves to the industry but it is their first time developing a star wars game. That does not mean that Respawn will disappoint us. There won’t be any “Surprise mechanics” in this game according to EA and that is one of the best things EA has done in a while most of the people hated battlefront 2 because it had microtransactions and Disney forced EA to remove them but later they added Microtransactions again making the game worse.
Bethesda has never disappointed us with the Doom series. Doom Eternal is officially coming this year on Stadia, Switch, PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4.
Creative director Hugo Martin has stated there will be twice as many demon types as in the 2016 reboot. There are new types of enemies, such as the Marauder and Doom Hunter, while others, such as the Pain Elemental, Arachnotron, and Archvile, will be reintroduced from previous Documentaries. A new system called “Destructible Demons” is featured, in which enemies’ bodies become progressively destroyed and deteriorated in combat as they suffer damage. There is also a new lives system. During gameplay, players can collect 1-up items (which look like green helmets) scattered around the environment. When the Doom Slayer perishes in combat, he will respawn where he died if he has spare lives, instead of restarting at the nearest checkpoint.
Ori and the Will of Wisps

Gods And Monsters
Gods And Monsters is a game that is being developed by the developers of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

They don’t want to lower the sales of their own game.
