Judging by what not only gaming studios and development teams have in store for us, but also Microsoft and Sony with their PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles, we are waiting for serious video games this year! In addition to new releases, these games will feature remakes of the classics and games that 10, 20 or even more years ago shaped everything that we have today in gaming.
These are the seven games we expect to see in 2020, which we hope will be hit at least as good as their announcements, which we’ve had a chance to see! We will give you a brief description, so you have everything you need in one place.
The list includes all platforms and all systems, including PCs and consoles, because it is only thing fair to each one of them, but we leave it up to you to choose which system you will lean on. However, choose correctly because each one will have its exclusives, and it seems like the fight has never been fiercer, and the Xbox is finally waking up from its long-standing dream as far as exclusive titles go.
Ori And The Will Of The Wisps
The fantastic first Ori game left us breathless, as well as the announcement of a new part in the series, but in previous years we only received announcements and short videos. However, Microsoft finally decided to bring the game in early 2020. This Metroidvania brings beautiful landscapes with an even more vibrant visual style, as well as challenging gameplay, culminating in boss fights.
Final Fantasy VII Remake
This is probably one of the remakes we’ve been waiting for the most, and for a good reason. The original Final Fantasy 7 appeared just over 20 years ago for the first generation of the PlayStation console, and now, in a completely revised edition, the PlayStation 4 is coming. Compared to the original, the content will come in episodic format, fights take place in real-time with numerous enhancements, and a considerable change is the graphics created in Unreal 4 engine with spectacular animations and style. According to rumors, the Final Fantasy VII Remake could also hit the competition console and PC next year, which would be a big deal for fans.
The famous game series that revolutionized the shooter genre in the 2020s is getting another release, Doom Eternal. Doom Slayer again donned a famous suit to free Earth from invading demons. The gameplay is similar to the 2016 Doom game, with significantly more upgrades, weapons, and modes available, which makes players substantially more agile. Along with the single-player storyline and irreplaceable heavy metal music, there will also be 2v1 BattleMode in which Doom Slayer battles two demons controlled by the player. The mode is quite impressive, as it gives a lot of freedom, and the winner is decided based on five whole rounds.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Animal Crossing games are like warm, soft blankets because you can’t wait to get into them and forget about the world around you. Animal Crossing: New Horizons looks like it will be the perfect shelter from everyday stress. Camping on an island with a bunch of animals in the neighborhood, fishing, searching for fossils, performing sporadic, small-scale commitments, and paying rent to the only benign landowner there – Tom Nuk. Everything looks so peaceful and beautiful, but it’s never quite so peaceful and beautiful, right?!
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2
Long 26 years after the arrival of the cult original, we get the second part, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. The sequel takes us to virtual Seattle, in a game recognizable as the World of Darkness, and puts us in the role of a man who, after a violent death, returns to life as a vampire. With new life and powers, the player must master and upgrade to get a chance to join one of the five clans. You will have the opportunity to experience a branching narrative that depends on your choices and actions, so you have complete freedom, which builds on all the great mechanics of the first part.
The fond memories of the famous System Shock still live on in all of us, and a touch of a new life for the series is a remake of the 1994 game, which has been worked on for a long time with a lot of delays. We expect the game in the first quarter of this year, and with it, we get refreshed textures and updated graphics accompanied by some new mechanics. The story follows a hacker, who after a failed job, comes to a world that is no longer the same.
Spongebob Squarepants: Battle For Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated
We never get enough of Spongebob and his adventures, and from the beginning of the millennium, we will have the opportunity to recall through a remake of a game modeled on the movie Battle for Bikini Bottom. The rehydrated version of the game will give fans of the original even more content in the form of elements that were not found when it appeared, and the novelty will be a multiplayer mode of play with famous heroes, who live at the bottom of the sea. Comrades led by a small yellow sponge awaits an epic adventure in which they need to save Coral, with a whole journey riddled with great humor.
Of course, for those of you who still think that all of these games are childish and not exciting enough, don’t worry, cause there are still games that are made solely for the adults. By that, we mean on pokemon games, kinky Japanese games, and lots of other types of interactive games, and for those of you who want to try something extraordinary, there are also certain bondage games. The choice is vast, and whatever you decide to play, you can be sure that it will satisfy all the criteria that you have.
