2020 has just arrived but the games don’t stop coming. Visit our list of Upcoming Games for the full lineup.
1. Zombie Army 4: Dead War on PC, PS4, and Xbox One
Ok, so not exactly the best start to a fresh new year of games. For one, Zombie Games are pretty much old news for some gamers. And two, Zombie Army 4 is the follow-up to Rebellion's polarizing Zombie Killing series whose trilogy earned biting reviews from critics and massive praise from gamers who like a good co-op zombie Hitler thrashing.
It may be far from being "The Room" of its videogame kind, but just like Wiseau's masterpiece, it's oozing with campy charm and all-around fun that it's almost hard to resist.
Epic Games fan or not, if you loved the trilogy, you're probably wanna get this.
It's set to release on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on Feb 4.
It might be 2020, we still haven't escaped from the Age of Reboots. If you haven't heard, last year's Netflix release, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, was a prequel to puppeteer Jim Henson's dark fantasy film from 1982. While it did a great job of reintroducing the universe, the series solidifies its presence in the modern age with this upcoming turn-based RPG developed by BonusXP.
Not only is this a great way to spread their fantastical lore, that also means there's more turn-based strategy to get our hands-on. With some hint of Final Fantasy Tactics embedded in its core, this just might serve as a great alternative with a new coat of paint.
It's coming out on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch on February 4th
This one's for the adrenaline junkies. By now Monster Energy Supercross--with all its official-ness--has become a staple release for fans of motocross racing. I mean, never mind that their previous titles have been lukewarm at best. And, don't even get us started on that embarrassing #BeOneOfUs campaign. Apart from all that, Monster Energy Supercross has maintained its steady fanbase and it's here to stay.
Aside from inviting us all into the floodlights of true-to-life tracks in career mode, there's also gonna be a new co-op experience to let you ride across a new compound with friends. And you’ll see it all this February 4.
4. Darksiders Genesis on PS4, Switch, and Xbox One
Not exactly what we expected.
While we were mostly awaiting the arrival of the fourth chapter to their apocalyptic action RPG series, Airship Syndicate takes a bit of a detour with this equally catastrophic spinoff. Far away from Darksider's usual shenanigans, Genesis may be taking a new, top-down perspective, it's still packed with the usual hack and slash promises of the series.
Meet the fourth horseman, Strife, as he hunts down master demons in hell along with this brother War in a never before seen prequel episode. The seed of chaos has already been planted on the PC, but this Valentine's, console users are gonna have their own date with hell.
From LEVEL-5, the makers of Dark Cloud and the majestic Ni No Kuni Games, Snack World The Dungeon Crawl Gold doesn't need much of an introduction. This was first released in Japan, but this Valentine's 2020, fans in the Western hemisphere will finally get their hands on this colorful action RPG.
Create your very own character and get crawling with the treasure hunting gang. There's been plenty of comparisons to the popular Fantasy Life series. While it seems a more story and dungeon driven adventure, this could be the next thing to scratch the same kind of itch.
For fans on the Switch, the wait will finally be over.
We've talked about the coming of this PSVR exclusive from Media Molecule for months, and now it looks like we're gonna get to see it up close this February. Dreams offers players limitless potential as an open-ended tool and creator game, and with it, it shows off the power of the PlayStation platform.
It first came out as an Early Access game and even then it was already dressed to impress. There's a lot of complexity going in every moment of whatever it is you've dreamed up within its multitude of creative options.
February 14 is looming on the horizon so it's time to get you imaginations fired up.
7. Best Friend Forever on PC and Switch
With so many games lining up to be your Valentine's date, Starcolt's Best Friends Forever wants you to know that they're IT. Best Friends Forever combines dating and dogs, and no, probably not in the way you're imagining.
In Best Friends Forever, get yourself a man's best friend, and let your life with them lead the way to a brand new romantic adventure with any of the hot, two-legged friends around town. Come for the cute, and occasionally threatening, dogs and stay to find your forever here.
One of the easiest sells ever, it's coming out on the PC and Switch.
As much as we love our Street Fighter games, it does sometimes come with the baggage of too many expansions to buy. However, with this Champion Edition, Street Fighter 5 feels like the most complete single it's ever been.
When they say this edition is packed, they mean it. It has almost all of the content of Street Fighter 5 and Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition, which means there's 34 stages, 200 costumes, and 40 characters, including Street Fighter 3's Gill.
The most robust update yet, it's coming this February 14th on the PC and PS4.
Set in a creepy hotel with a carpet patterned with diamonds and dots, you can already feel the Kubrick inspirations in ONE-O-ONE's adventure thriller. But just from the title itself, you can be sure that it'll deal with some very mature subject matter.
Returning to the scene of a young girl's suicide, help Nicole navigate the mysteries of the eerie hotel and hopefully uncover the truth behind her past and the grim events within it.
It's still on its way to the PC on February 19th, but its Shining references are enough to intrigue any thriller enthusiast.
Like many of fighting games, French-Bread's Under Night In-Birth is constantly inundated with updates to their roster and gameplay to keep things fresh. Late cl-r is their latest addition to the fighting frenzy and it contains a brand new character in the frozen fang of eternity, Londrekia Light.
With powers of ice, Londrekia’s addition will usher new variety to the mix. Not just in his own powerful set of frozen moves, but also with new stages and moves for the whole cast too.
This powerful new update is nearing completion and it's coming to the PS4 and the Switch on February 20th.
11. Conan Chop Chop on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch
Sometimes fun comes in simple packages and Mighty Kingdom's action-adventure proves to be one of those. Not even bothering with a more marketable title, Conan Chop Chop goes right down to business, offering a swords and sorcery experience for up to four players in straightforward stick-figure style.
It might be low on the production value scale, Conan Chop Chop is decidedly hectic in its portrayal of the everyday life of the barbarian. That, plus its roguelike elements and Zelda-like dungeons and up to what seems like a hell of chop-chopping enjoyment.
And, you can find it on the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and the Switch this February 25th.
He may have left the MCU, but Tony Stark’s legacy isn’t over yet. This genius billionaire philanthropist is about to give out fun exclusively on the PSVR next month.
Take to the skies in the iconic metal suit and fight against a slew of Iron Man's greatest foes. The voice and face behind the iconic suit may be unfamiliar to us compared to RDJ's famous portrayal, but it seems like he still has the biting wit that we've come to love.
Sure, it's not the full-on Iron Man game we would've wanted, but it's a step in the right direction and it's set to release on February 28.
With one heck of a popular anime series, it was only about time till we saw a fighting game centered around the unrivaled hero 'Caped Baldy'. While he's usually knocking down opponents with a single punch, A Hero Nobody Knows makes it their mission to even the playing field for the rest of the OPM characters who want in on the action.
This upcoming fighting will feature the skills and talents of S class heroes like King, Metal Knight, class A hero Stinger, Dragon level threat Melzargard, and even Dream Version Saitama in pajamas. Each equipped with their own special skills and moves, it's gonna be a challenge for your friends, and even for the World's Strongest Man.
It's coming out this Feb 28th on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
The Mega Man series isn't running out of steam any time soon. Sure, there's been plenty of collections of it already, but this time Capcom is bringing six iconic titles--the first four Mega Man Zero games, as well as the Mega Man ZX and the ZX advent. That's an alphabet soup of names, all to signify that the Mega Man legacy will live on.
It's coming out on the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and the Switch this February 25th.
15. Two Point Hospital on PS4, Xbox One, and Switch
Hailed as one of the best simulation games of 2019, Two Point Hospital is about to work its surgical charm on the consoles next month. More than just a hospital building game, Two Point Hospital lets you learn the ropes of everything that goes inside. That means taking care of all the weird and wacky folks from god knows where, plus all the illnesses they bring with them.
It's universal healthcare on a whole new level.
As it's already a massive success on the PC, we're hoping the medical mischief will be translated smoothly to the PS4, Xbox One, and Switch this February 25th.
