15 Upcoming Games for April 2020 (PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox One)

Delay Season affected the succeeding month’s triple A gaming releases. Here's our list of all upcoming games.

1. Resident Evil 3 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One

CAPCOM knows the remake formula works and they’re about to bring back their most revered classic to life. This full-blown remake takes Jill Valentine and her cat and mouse chase with video game's iconic monster, The Nemesis.

Resident Evil 3 serves as a prequel to Resident Evil 2, taking place hours before Claire and Leon’s journey. It still shares the same over the shoulder shooter with deep survival-horror elements. Every bullet counts and every encounter is a risk.

In addition to RE’s success, CAPCOM also included a multiplayer mode called Resident Evil Resistance as a separate mode. Players will enjoy building their own torture chamber or become the very victims of a madman’s game. Both are coming this 3rd of April, 2020 for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

2. Disaster Report 4 Plus: Summer Memories on PS4, PC, and Switch

There’s not a lot of Disaster games on the market. Granzella’s action-adventure game focuses on real-life calamities.

Disaster Report isn’t your standard videogame, there are no boss fights to encounter, enemies to defeat or powerful weapons to obtain. It’s simply a mini-puzzle journey where you, as a player, find ways to help over 60 characters escape in this earthquake-struck city.

In a way, it’s a game that teaches most players the proper procedures during dangerous earthquakes. Coming this April 7 for the PlayStation 4, PC, and the Switch.

3. Final Fantasy VII: Remake

CAPCOM and Square Enix will take over the month of April. Cloud and his friends are shedding off their polygonal bodies and are jumping into next-gen visuals in this ambitious Remake.

Like Resident Evil 3 Remake, VII is also rebuilt from the ground up featuring new features that the original couldn’t even compare. Focusing more on the action-adventure perspective, players no longer engage in turn-based battles as the game shifts to real-time combat.

Switch between characters on the fly and stop the greedy Shinra from destroying the planet. It’s only but Part One of VII’s ultimate adventure, but there are more surprises in store here that we can’t wait to uncover. Coming this April 10 as a PlayStation 4 Exclusive.

4. Space Engineers

If you’re itching for some tinkering then Keen Software House’s sandbox sci-fi game is the right kind of tool for the job.

Everything in this game is explorable, destructible and buildable. Like Kerbal Space Program, it’s your sanctuary of technological feats. Build space stations, planetary outposts, and travel to the vastness of the galaxy using your basic architectural knowledge. Go solo or grab friends and pick between its Survival or Creative mode.

Its PC version is already out on Steam for quite some time now, but its Xbox One release is coming this April 11, 2020.

5. Someday You’ll Return on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One

This Psychological Horror game from the creators of J.U.L.I.A.: Among the Stars will elevate the walking simulator genre with its slew of unique mechanics. The story involves a father looking for his missing daughter

7. Artificer

After crash landing on a mysterious and hostile planet, a team of space explorers tries their best to survive the alien environment. Sounds familiar? If it reminds you of the hit mobile game Crashlands, then they’re pretty much the same, except this one from Psilocybe mixes science and magic into one sandbox adventure.
