If 2019 was a great year for games, 2020 looks like it will exceed expectations and bring the end of the current generation with a bang. With that said, let’s take a look at some of the most highly-anticipated PC games that will (or may) come out next year.
Mount and Blade II: Bannerlord
IT IS FINALLY HERE.
Bannerlord. Is. Finally. Here.
To those in the dark, Mount and Blade is a sandbox medieval-style RPG that puts you in the shoes of your original character. You’ll determine your character’s fate, fight in large-scale battles with armies (while commanding your own), and interact with kings, lords, and ladies. You can besiege towns and castles even own one of your own. It’s a franchise known for its deep, immersive lore and you’re free to do whatever you want in it.
Bannerlord is the prequel to the 2008 game, Mount and Blade: Warband which was released first in 2008. Though it’s an old game, it still commands a rabid and loyal following and a dedicated community of modders which has been waiting for it since early in the decade.
It’ll release on early access in March 2020. Granted, we’re sure legions of army captains, commanders, and future lords and kings will hastily get the game.
Revealed in the last E3, Cyberpunk 2077 will release on April 16th and promises to be a massive, futuristic experience. This first-person RPG is a huge undertaking and expectations for it to be a hit are high, considering that it is being developed by CD Projekt Red, the geniuses behind The Witcher III. Oh, and it also features Keanu Reeves as one of the main NPCs.
Kerbal Space Program 2
With a release date set in 2020, Kerbal Space Program 2 is the sequel to the highly-acclaimed space simulator, Kerbal Space Program. It will feature new parts for you to build your spaceship, more missions, the ability to build a colony, and a new, interstellar level.
The 15th of May is Avenger’s Day. This action-adventure co-op is best played with friends and you can play together and fight villains while playing as Captain America, Black Widow, The Incredible Hulk, and Ironman.
Arguably the best Microsoft gaming franchise ever, Halo is an epic series that defined the childhood of many PC and Xbox gamers. Halo: Infinite is coming next year, and is the sixth entry to the mainline Halo series. With that said, this FPS will bring in the return of Master Chief as a central character and will once again feature split-screen gaming.
Gods & Monsters
When the gods themselves are in the trouble, it will take a mortal to save them. This is Gods & Monsters’ setting and this action-adventure game will feature many of the immortal beings and monsters in Ancient Greek mythology. With a release date set in February, it’s being developed by the creators of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, so you’ll be sure to receive a game that’s faithful to the Greek setting.
Doom Eternal is the direct sequel to the critically-acclaimed 2016’s Doom and is set to be released in 2020. Once again, you’ll take the role of the Doom Slayer and combat the forces of hell using a variety of weapons, from Heavy Cannons to Plasma Rifles. Like its predecessor, it encourages you to go forward and on the offensive without stopping. It also promises new movement mechanics like including wall-climbing and wall hooks.
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 promises to be the most ambitious flight simulator to date. It has improved and more realistic visuals. Like its predecessors, it features the real-world that will be generated as you fly in the game’s skies and will be generated in real-time using Microsoft’s Azure technology. For example, if it’s raining in the city you’re flying above, it will also rain in-game. It’s set to be released in 2020 with no specific date yet.
Tales of Arise
Tales of Arise is the next mainline entry of the ever-popular Tales series. Though it still features and anime art style and storyline, the environmental design and overworld looks absolutely realistic and is a step towards the next generation. The story features two characters, Alphen and Shionne, from two different worlds called Dahna and Rena. Though details are scarce, the story promises to live up to Tales of Berseria’s outstanding tale.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to create mankind’s own history with your own hands? Humankind, a game by Amplitude Studios and published by Sega, lets you do just that. You can select a civilization and guide them and determine their histories on a planet, creating a city and expanding your territory, coming into contact (and conflict) with other civilizations at that. With a tentative 2020 release date, it promises to be a deep, immersive experience that is highly replayable.
So, what are some of the games that you're looking forward to in 2020?
