OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead for the PC and Xbox One

Aww man the Walking Dead games can’t seem to catch a break. We’ve known how huge Robert Kirkman’s Zombie franchise is, but we’ve never been given good games to deal with. Telltale’s very own Walking Dead is already down in the dumpster now, and Starbreeze’s latest Walking Dead isn’t really a fun game to play on the PC.

This time, Overkill, creators of Payday, decides to put our zombie-survival fantasies in Overkill’s The Walking Dead. Based on the critically-acclaimed source material, players will be left to survive in a doomed Washington DC. The game’s focus on co-op is a game-changer compared to previous Walking Dead games.

There will be role-playing elements present throughout the game and also stealth mechanics. Not to mention VR is supported! Currently out on Steam way back November 6, it didn’t get good feedback. The game suffers from a myriad of issues including unsatisfying combat, repetitive gameplay and technical issues. Although it’s not the end for the game yet, we’re hoping they manage to resolve most of their issues once they release it on the PS4 and Xbox One this February 6, 2019.

Far Cry: New Dawn for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One

Far Cry's upcoming installment is welcoming a new dawn in more ways than one. Amidst their sea of white, male leads, this new title brings--not one--but two BLACK female leads to center stage. There was a bit of a fuss around that, especially along with the rather bland box-art tease that came along with it. But now that the world is in full view, boy does it look good. Set in a post apocalyptic paradise in full superbloom, Far Cry New Dawn's revamped Hope County is budding with the promise of their signature guns and vehicles gameplay.

It continues the story of Far Cry 5's countryside cult as its citizens fight for survival 17 years after.

Making up for their recycled, albeit renewed world, the game will feature an Expedition mode to add more variety. It's set to release on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on February 15th, 2019.

The next chapter in their chaotic RAGE series, this sequel takes us to a new color-splashed land of discord and disenchantment. Combining the heavyweight forces of id Software and Avalanche studios, we get a culmination of their videogame specialties--from Doom's shooting, Mad Max's vehicular action, and Just Cause's dedication to destruction. All that combined makes for a fantastic open world romp.

Set in a seamless world of Cronenberg level ugliness, bask in the radioactive glow with last ranger, Walker, as your tour guide. What sets this title apart is, unlike Royale-crazed FPS competitors, RAGE keeps faithful to their singleplayer experience. drive around in radioactive sewers, mow down mutants, and maybe get some powers along the way.

Insurgency: Sandstorm for the PS4 and Xbox One

Starting out as a humble Half-Life 2 mod, Sandstorm shows just how far they've come. Engage in lethal close quarters combat and fulfill objectives with your squad.

DOOM Eternal for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch

id Software's sequel to their Doom 2016 and it’s not fooling around this time.

A huge improvement from their 1993 classic, and obviously an upgrade from their 2016 reboot. This sequel takes us back to the shoes of the Doom Slayer who's hell-bent on destroying whatever demon comes in his way. With the added mobility of his grapple-powered super shotgun, huge visual overhaul and an army of murdering demons, players can get right into their action.

With its gameplay trailers, videos, and teasers, it’s raising the bar for an already legendary shooter. It comes out sometime this 2019 on the PC, PlayStation Xbox One and Switch.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One

For a series that began in the pixel-rich days MS DOS, Wolfenstein has enjoyed a remarkable longevity. Lucky for the Wolfenstein series, the nazi-killing never gets old. A year or two after their recent Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, this standalone spinoff will see protagonist BJ Blazkowiz relinquishing the center stage to his two twin daughters. Set in the alternate 1980s, play as either Jessica or Sophia, and help them navigate the Nazi-infested dystopia. Taking a break from the main campaign, this brand new co-op adventure is Machinegame's best answer to the Wolfenstein 3 void.

While there's not much info on the actual co-op mechanics, from what we've seen in the trailers, the two characters will each have their own fighting styles which makes for an exciting Wolfenstein experience. Work together with a friend to infiltrate the narrow streets of Paris. Something to fill the void before Wolfenstein 3, it's set to release on the PC,PS4, and Xbox One in 2019

Generation Zero for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One

Descent for the PC, PS4,Xbox One and the Switch

With reboot after reboot coming out from long established videogame giants, it's safe to say that the 90s are definitely making a comeback. Everyone's just rushing to get that stroll through memory lane. Now, with the help of Descendant Studios and Little Orbit, the iconic 3D spacecraft FPS is finally getting the star treatment. Showered with a well-deserved graphical makeover, the Descent of our childhood days remains true to its roots. Get behind the wheel of their spacepods and enjoy the six degrees of freedom reborn.

Relive your childhood memories when it comes out on the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and the Switch this first quarter of 2019

Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One

Hold up, this is not your usual Wolfenstein game. For the first time in the series, kill Nazis in Virtual Reality. Yes, you heard that right. This first person shooter is set 20 years after the events of The New Colossus and players assume the role of a Hacker working for the French. But instead of the good ol’ Nazi shooting, you spend most of your time hacking Nazi robots and turning them against their creators.

Aside from that, the best thing about this VR shooter is it avoids the rail-free experience. Players are not bound by camera restrictions and super scripted scenarios like the Rambo videogame. It allows the player to enjoy the freedom of a first person shooter, while at the same time killing more of Hitler’s goons.

It’s coming out sometime this 2019 on the HTC Vive, and the PlayStation VR.

The Outer Worlds for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One

This is a welcome surprise during the 2018 Game Awards. It’s a bit of a stretch to call this the real successor of Fallout. But with the disappointing release of Fallout 76, it might as well be. Directed by the creators of Fallout and currently being developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the team that brought us Fallout New Vegas and South Park: Stick of Truth.

You play as a colonist who just woke up from a long hibernation on a colony at the edge of the galaxy… a colony that’s on a verge of destruction caused by corporate greed. There are little info on the actual gameplay, the loadouts available, how big the world is, the factions, and other minute details. We’ll have to wait for more details leading to the launch.

Keep in mind that there might be delays. The Outer Worlds is expected to release on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime this 2019.

Blood Remastered Edition

Nightdive Studios, a studio whose mission is to bring lost and forgotten gaming treasures back, are going to hit us with another nostalgic hit with the remake of the classic PC FPS by Monolith Productions from 1997. The Original was said to be one of the most underrated shooters of the decade.

If you can’t guess from the title, it’s a horrific shooter with cult-ish themes. This remaster will borrow its retro-futuristic looks from the original, only with updates that will make it more compatible with the current gen systems -- AND THAT’S IT! The developers said that they want to preserve what made the original so special and then make the experience better for contemporary audiences.

For now, all we know is that it may be out on the PC sometime in 2019.

Scavengers

Another game announced at the recent Game Awards. This one puts us in the shoes of space-faring soldiers who must band together so they can survive the dangers that lurk in this alien planet.

After the planet’s natural dangers are conquered, that’s when the real fun starts -- a winner-take-all battle! If Midwinter Entertainment could develop a game that could perfectly balance survival, cooperation AND competition, ALL OF US WOULD WIN. That would just be extremely cool. Make it happen. No pressure.

For now, we don’t know much about the game including how many players could play per match nor when the actual game will get released.

So, go right ahead and reserve yourself a slot to beta playtest the game while we all collectively hope that Scavengers will be released sometime in 2019.
