Next year comes loaded with very promising and expected games. In this article, we will list the most important and outstanding games for the first half of 2020, announced at this E3 2019.
While right now we all have our sights set on the spectacular second half of 2019 that awaits us as far as video game releases are concerned, after this avalanche of titles we might think that we will have a little respite in 2020, but nothing is further from reality, since its first semester promises to leave us also breathless.
Therefore, we decided to do a little review of E3 2019 and everything that awaits us during the first half of next year, highlighting the most powerful games and the expected ones in a few months that will be also marked by the imminent arrival of new generation consoles.
The Games With Release Date:
In 2020, January remains very calm and has not yet dated any great premiere for that month, although things will soon be animated in February with the highly anticipated release of Ori and the Will of the Wisps on 11th Feb 2020. The promising sequel of Ori and the Blind Forest that aims to return to conquer us with its overwhelming audio-visual section and its very careful gameplay, improving and polishing the Metroidvania formula that we could already enjoy in its first part.
Shortly after, on February 25, we can play Gods and Monsters, Ubisoft’s new open-world adventure that is being developed by the creators of the acclaimed Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. In it, we will travel to the classic Greece in an odyssey full of mythological creatures, dungeons and combats that for its aesthetic cartoon could not avoid comparisons with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
In March 2020, things will really get serious with the arrival of Final Fantasy VII Remake on March 3, 2020, probably the most demanded and desired remake in history, a game that will finally cease to be the dream of the entire generation that marked the original to become a very tangible reality.
Just three days later, on March 6, we will be able to enter the dystopian London of Watch Dogs Legion, the third installment of this Ubisoft series and with which they will bet on an original permanent death system for our characters that has reminded us a lot of ZombiU.
But before we can recover from the first part of Cloud’s adventure (remember that it will be an “episodic” game in which each chapter will have the duration equivalent to a main title of the saga) and our adventures in London, Nintendo will give us Animal Crossing: New Horizons on March 20, a very promising title and in which we can “colonize” islands to make a living in them with all the usual fun of this series of social simulators that so many hours of our lives have stolen.
Do you think these games are not enough for you? Do not worry, on April 16 Cyberpunk 2077 will be released, the biggest and most ambitious project of CD Projekt RED and with which they have proposed to overcome their great masterpiece, The Witcher 3. Undoubtedly, one of the most anticipated titles of the year.
Finally, on May 15 we can unleash our most heroic side with the premiere of Marvel’s Avengers, the ambitious official game of The Avengers that is getting prepared in Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montréal, with which we can enjoy a cooperative action experience in which they will give us the opportunity to embody our favorite Avengers in a title that will be expanded for free over the months.
The Games Without Release Date:
Of course, these are not the only titles planned for the beginning of 2020, as announced in E3 2019, since there are others that still have no release date but that are expected to arrive during the first half of the year.
Among them stand out names like Dragon Ball Z Kakarot, the ambitious aRPG of CyberConnect2 with which we can relive the story of Dragon Ball Z, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, the sequel to the cult role play, Persona 5: Royal, the expanded version of this masterpiece of the JRPG, and who knows if they will also join the party as desired releases such as Detective Pikachu 2, The Last of Us – Part 2, Dying Light 2, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Psychonauts 2, Oddworld: Soulstorm or No More Heroes 3.
And these are just a few of the many titles planned for 2020, not to mention that by the end of that same year we will already be enjoying the successors of Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Undoubtedly, fans of video games are experiencing a very sweet moment and there are more and more titles for all tastes that crowd the horizon in the short and medium term, so the real odyssey will be finding enough time to play everything we want. Which are your most expected titles?
