If there's one thing Bandai Namco is known for, it's their anime entertainment. And their biggest treat for us next year is this retelling of one of the most popular arcs in Dragon Ball History. Now, being one of the most popular arcs, this isn't the first time we're experiencing this story.
Bandai Namco, though, assures all of us that it'll still be a fresh experience thanks to an array of improvements on gameplay and visuals. Their recent announcements have revealed that beloved characters like Cell, Gohan, and so much more, will be joining in the adventure.
It's coming out on Jan 17th
Microsoft made one of their best moves ever when they acquired this metroidvania platformer from developer Moon Game Studios. Since then, Ori has been the gift that keeps on giving, especially this time with a fresh new sequel coming out. In Will of the Wisps, we'll get to see Ori venturing out from their original magical forest to forge adventures in the world beyond.
It's been a long journey for the title, and from what we've seen from all their E3 presentations, it still feels like the same majestic, challenging, and tear-jerking platformer. But, of course, with more nimble movements and a host of new enemies to take down.
We'll finally get to see it live this February 11th, 2020.
Ubisoft has a lot on their plate but they're planning to serve us another side of revolution in this latest installment to their Watch Dogs series. With Legion, they're definitely pulling out all the stops as they expand on the idea of open-world by eliminating all NPCs. That's because Watch Dogs Legion lets players take on absolutely anyone who chooses to take part in the rising revolution. It's rife with technological innovations and it promises variety in terms of experience and gameplay.
Ambitious is one way to describe it and we're hoping to see it on March 6th
4. Doom Eternal
We were all a little bit disappointed when id Software moved their brand new Doom title from its November release date. Still, it's always a good move for games to be given more time in the oven. That's especially true given the scale of Doom Eternal.
Spreading out of the realms of hell, the iconic Demon slayer is broadening his horizons. Not only is he bringing the fight to the equally garish monsters of the pearly gates, he's also going for a lot of new mobility at his disposal. And to add to the beloved single-player campaign, Eternal will also have multiplayer invasions where players get to play the Demons themselves.
That's a lot of new features, and we can't wait to finally try it out on March 20, 2020
t's been more than a few decades since Vampire the Masquerade landed on the PC in 2004. 15 years later, the cult classic is getting a new lease on life and we're gonna get to experience the nocturnal adventures once again. Still set in the 21st century, Continue your vampiric adventures and settle into underworld gloom of nighttime Seattle.
Choices still play a massive part of gameplay, and it comes out through your character’s backgrounds, as well as the decisions you make in the various dialogs and interactions. All that is important when there are factions vying for your loyalty-----including the fan favorite Malkavians.
It's set to release on March 2020.
Now, this isn't a official release yet, but it's the most we're gonna see from this title in over ten years and we're definitely not missing out on it. It was only last August when TaleWorlds Entertainment announced this Early Access release. Sure, it's no official release date. But, with this Early Access announcement is a promise that we'll get to see the fruit of what seems to be a decade-long labor.
There's been plenty of medieval playgrounds available through the years, and it's only kept us wondering what Mount & Blade II will have in store for us. It probably won't be perfect at the outset. However, from what we saw in their campaign overviews, siege defences, and faction overviews, the March 2020 Early Access is gonna be one hell of a treat.
Perhaps one of the biggest titles to look forward to next year is the newest IP from Witcher developers CD Projekt Red. If their success with their fantasy action RPG is any indication, Cyberpunk 2077 might just be their most ambitious game yet. Then again, why rely on speculation when we have a 48 minute gameplay walkthrough to drool over.
Create everything about your character, from their appearance, stats, background stories, and modifications. And then roam around Night City where Big Corporation is law. Dystopia might not be so screenshot friendly. Cyberpunk 2077 is still expected to set a new bar for the open world, with seamless exploration and vibrant populations.
It's set to release on April 16th, 2020
Marvel is a force in the box offices, and now they're setting their sights on videogames once more. What might be a little sad is the fact that the videogame counterparts of our favorite characters don't match the faces we got used to in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But, that doesn't make Marvel's Avengers any less of a big deal. While it's not connected to the MCU, it is developed by the same studio that brought us the rebooted Tomb Raider series. Crystal Dyanamics is promising to redefine the superhero genre. Other than teaming up with other icons and mastering their individual abilities, we'll also get to witness an original story in their protagonist, Kamala Khan.
It's set to release on May 15th 2020.
A series built on combat, graphics, co-op multiplayer, and a day and night cycle, Dying Light 2 stands firms on all those aspects in this second installment. What makes this sequel exciting is the added focus on player choices.
Building on a brand new engine, The City in Dying Light 2, isn't just four times bigger, it will also react to whatever decisions you make along the way. With so many of them planted into a more focused narrative, they open up a host of possibilities that will make each playthrough feel special. And with the added mobility of the new protagonist, Aiden Caldwell, it also means more ways of dealing with the zombies of the night.
It's set to release this Spring 2020
Minecraft, like its many universes is an ever growing franchise and it looks they're expanding into the RPG realm now too, taking notes from classics like the Diablo series. While it's still largely voxel based, Minecraft Dungeons veers away from their usual first-person style adventures. It dons the familiar isometric perspective, immersing players fully into the dungeon-crawling we loved and still love today.
Minecraft Dungeons will have a multiplayer mode which lets up to four players team up in local and online co-op.It may not be Diablo 4, but from the looks of the trailer alone, it already seems like a promising lovechild of the two massively popular franchises.
It’s set to release sometime in Spring 2020.
Ubisoft's Tom Clancy series is taking on something kind of new. Set several years into the future of their Rainbow Six series, Quarantine explores the team's fight against a mutating alien parasite. From their teaser trailers, we know it's going to have a lot of adrenaline pumping scares in their isolating halls.
While the classic Tom Clancy FPS features will make their return, Rainbow Six Quarantine is said to show off a brand new 3 player co-op, letting you get into gunplay and tactics with two other friends. We haven’t seen much of that though, since it’s all been teasers so far.
Even if you're not a Rainbow Six player, Ubisoft Montreal assures you that Quarantine will be a good place to start for the series. It's set to release Early next year.
12. Halo Infinite
The return of Master Chief is exciting for all the fans of Microsoft's Halo series. While it was first announced in E3 2018, we finally got a lengthier dose of the title in E3 2019 with their 5 minute cinematic.
As for gameplay is concerned, on the other hand, we don't have much to go on yet. What we do know is that Halo Infinite will definitely put Master Chief center stage for a story that's as yet unknown to us. We won't be getting a Battle Royale mode, unlike all the other games, that’s also for sure. And though there are talks of a local four-player splitscreen multiplayer, there aren't any confirmation on whether it'll apply on the PC. We'll have to stand by for more news until its release right in time for the holidays next year.
If there's one thing that's big on the PC, it's 4X strategies. And this time, SEGA takes a shot at it with a game that isn't subtle about their Civilization inspirations. Developed by the same minds as the impressive 4X fantasy strategy, Endless Legend, AMPLITUDE Studios is taking on Human History.
Titled Humankind, it's definitely more than just a Civ clone as it brings to the fore all the things that Endless Legend a modern classic is while showing off an array of innovative new features. Instead of just sticking to one civilization, Humankind will allow us to go through six different eras from our own history.
Calling it their Magnum Opus, there's a lot of hype for Amplitude Studios' next game and it's coming out sometime in 2020.
14. Tales of Arise
Bandai Namco’s latest Tales game veers away from the shared universe of the previous titles. For the first time in a long time, Arise takes you into a whole new world torn apart by ideologies.
Still embracing that fantasy charm, play as two characters with the same goal of uniting their divided world once and for all. Aside from an original world, Arise also features a fresh cast of characters that are as memorable as any other Tales games out there. In addition to that, its improvement of the Linear Motion Battle System makes combat even more satisfying.
It’s set to release sometime in 2020
Rage—Goddess, sing the rage of Peleus' son Achilles.
Where Humankind takes up the human history mantle, the veterans of the strategy genre are taking a turn for the mythical. With Total War Saga, the series explores the events of the Trojan War through the arguably blind eyes of the great poet Homer. That means we'll get to see Ajax, Paris, and the legendary faceoff of Achiless and Hector. All of it in in the long-running fight for the treasures of Troy and the return of Menelaus' beautiful wife Helen.
We've already seen some features of the map in their Campaign reveal but we're awaiting see a whole lot more. Announced very recently this year, we'll have to expect it sometime in 2020.
