Top 5 Upcoming Games For 2020

2020 is poised to be an exciting year for gaming (we’re looking at you, Cyberpunk.) We’re also looking forward to some groundbreaking new consoles that are more powerful than ever. Not only are team blue and green releasing some exciting new toys, but there’s also a new kid on the block that wants to seriously change the landscape of gaming. Exciting times! Let’s take a look at our top 5 upcoming games for 2020

5. Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Final Fantasy 7 is entering meme territory now with how long everyone’s been waiting for a remake. At e3 2015 Square-Enix promised to give this masterpiece a fresh lick of paint. We’re excited for the smooth, satisfying combat that comes with a Final Fantasy title, a great story and of course updated visuals to compliment them. However, it’s planned to be split up into game-sized episodes. Once April heads our way, we’ll be counting down the days.

Platform: PS4 (timed exclusive)
Release date: April 10, 2020

4. Half-Life: Alyx

I know this is a VR title but it’s truly going to be something special, I can feel it! To get you a little hyped, it’s being worked on by the biggest team Valve’s ever put together with around 80 people working it. I know, right? As the spiritual successor to Half-Life 2, we expect Half-Life: Alyx to be a serious VR GoTY contender. It’s anticipated to have about the same amount of content as Half-Life 2, which is pretty impressive for a VR game. We only have a handful of AAA length games so far like Stormland and Asgard’s Wrath. Valve said it will have  “puzzle-solving, deep environmental interactions, and visceral combat,” so expect a fun one here.

Platform: PC VR
Release date: March 2020

3. Halo Infinite

Does anyone else remember the glory days with Halo 3, Master Chief, and squatting repeatedly over killed enemies? I know I do. It looks like Halo is coming back in a way this year. The announcement trailer we got was beautiful and, I mean, that music! Based on the trailer, it looks like this one might more open world than its predecessors. I’m interested in the gameplay and if they can strike a good balance between nostalgia and innovation. One thing’s for sure, Master Chief is back and is looking better than ever. I plan on picking up the baby on day 1.

Platform(s): PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X
Release date: Holiday 2020

2. Doom Eternal

I remember buying Doom 2016 and realizing how much a game can affect your mood and make you feel like a total badass. I still find it hard to find a game that matches the silky-smooth, brutal gameplay of the last Doom. The developers of Doom Eternal have claimed this one will be ramped us in pretty much every category. It’s going to have more guns, more demons and of course more of Doomguy. The fight is coming to Terra Firma this time and will be glorious. Check out the soundtrack to see if you can handle it or not.

Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch
Release date: March 20, 2020

1. Cyberpunk 2077

Surprise! I’m sure we’re not the only ones who are most excited about Cyberpunk 2077. The Witcher 3 has the title of my favorite game of all time. Naturally, I’m excited about CD Project Red’s latest title. I mean, pretty much anything with Keanu Reeves in it is going to be awesome. Running around in Night City and making my own story is going to consume my life for a while and I’m totally okay with that. I expect nothing but high-tech greatness from Cyberpunk. If I could only play one game this year it would be this, no questions asked.

Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One
Release date: September 17, 2020
