visit our list of all upcoming games for the full and up-to-date lineup.

1. Zombie Army 4: Dead War on PC, PS4, and Xbox One

Zombie games aren’t over just yet. In fact, they’re becoming weirder by the day. Travel back to Europe in 1946 and face the undead hordes of zombie Hitler’s zombie army. Yes, you heard that right.

Team up with your friends in this insane campaign packed with epic weapons, skills, and a handful of upgrades. It’s the kind of game where it is absolutely fun with friends. Nothing beats the satisfaction of taking down an army of living corpses using the power of friendship… and a massive tank. It’s coming this February 4 for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

2. Ori And The Will Of The Wisps on PC and Xbox One

Moon Studios’ beloved Metroidvania is back for another emotional adventure ready to tug our heartstrings. In Will of the Wisps, Ori’s journey takes him out from its original magical forest and into uncharted territories in the world beyond.

From what we've seen from all their E3 presentations, it still feels like the same majestic, and challenging platformer. Now, with more nimble movements and a host of new enemies, all of which we’ll see on March 11 as a Microsoft exclusive.

3. NiOh 2

2020 is turning out to be a year of Samurai games with Ghost of Tsushima and Team Ninja’s ‘Nioh’. Like Half-Life Alyx, Nioh 2 is going to be a prequel with a standalone story. Play a customized character that’s part human, part yokai and venture around the new Dark Realms with great Japanese warlords like Hideyoshi.

It’s still essentially a single-player experience. However, the improved multiplayer which allows up to three players will definitely make the Yokai battles that much easier. A PlayStation 4 Exclusive, it’s set to release this May 13, 2020.

4. Doom Eternal on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Stadia, and Switch

The year 2151 has not been very kind to Planet Earth. Pandemonium is just a regular Tuesday for the legendary Doomguy.

Eternal is a follow-up to id Software’s fresh reboot of the action-packed franchise. Just like their previous entries, the titular badass returns to the fray but now he’s armed to the teeth with an arsenal of powerful weapons. Moving from point A to point B now feels more fleshed out with a handful of movement upgrades. It’s basically just a walk in the park for Doomguy and every Demon’s worst nightmare.

Coming this 20th of March for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, Goggle Stadia, and the Nintendo Switch.

5. Half-Life: Alyx

I guess it’s time to let go of Valve’s elusive Half-Life 3. Although it acts as a prequel, it still, this brand new Half-Life experience could pass as a pseudo-sequel. Meet new and familiar faces in this Virtual Reality sci-fi spectacle.

Unlike their old titles, this is Valve’s most ambitious work to date, considering they’re no longer making enough games lately. As a VR entry, things might not go the way it should, but given Valve’s track record, this whole new story might be something huge for gamers. Coming sometime this March 2020 as a PC Exclusive.

6. Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord

The age old question finally gets an answer. Bannerlord when? TaleWorlds Entertainment finally brought something more concrete for all of us to hold on to.

Step inside a beautiful Calradia and battle it out using its smooth physics and improved UI. wWith four planned multiplayer modes--including a siege mode; a duel mode; and, a Captains mode that lets you man AI armies as well as your own character--there's enough to distract you from the real world.

We know about their campaigns, factions, siege defenses, and putting our hands on it may either be wonder, or disappointment. Coming out sometime this March 2020.

7. Wasteland 3 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One

The icy hell of post-apocalyptic Colorado isn’t as friendly as it was before in this much-awaited installment by InXile Entertainment to the Wasteland series. Coming a long way since 1998, this fan-funded project wasn’t an easy task. The party-based RPG is stepping up their game with asynchronous multiplayer, solid single-player experience and strategic turn-based gameplay.

That means whether you want a friend, or not, you still get to taste the horrors and atmosphere of this frozen wasteland. The game is slated for a March 2020 release.

8. The Last Of Us II

The adventures of Ellie and Joel continue in this major follow-up to Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic masterpiece. This time around, a mature and hardened Ellie takes center stage.

Survival remains essential in this sequel as Ellie has a wide variety of tools and weapons to fend off the ghastly Clickers and some unwelcome human presence. Compared to the first game’s controls, Ellie has more verticality and can finally jump. As for Joel’s character, not much was shown as of the moment, except for his now grizzled face.
