Ubisoft is yet to release a firm date for the title’s release, but we do know that the title will be released in 2020 across numerous platforms. The title was on display at E3, and we know that the world is facing new threats as you play in squads of three to thwart attacks.

Developers have kept a tight seal on the game and have not released much information.

We have seen some of the gameplay at E3, and this has hinted that players will be able to enjoy:

  • Rogue characteristics
  • Ela
  • Vigil
  • Tactical FPS

The world is under an alien threat, and the developer has not said much, but they did mention that the threat is the deadliest that fans have experienced yet.

call of duty 2020

4. Call of Duty Black Ops 5

Recent reports suggest that Black Ops 5 will be Call of Duty 2020, and this is a game that has been fast-tracked for release. There’s a chance that the game will be a major success, or it may be a massive failure.

Treyarch planned for the game to be released in 2021, and a 2020 date mean a major hit to the quality of the game.

The team is under pressure to finish the game. Of the few details released, we know that there will be campaign mode and there are rumors that the game will be “cross-gen.” The game will push the limits with next-gen options, and despite the few details that we know about the game, Call of Duty is such a large franchise that it’s sure to be a hit.

darksiders genesis

5. Darksiders Genesis

Darksiders may be released in 2019, but it’s still going to be a major hit. Fans thought the game was a lot like Diablo, but it’s not. The game may have the same dark graphics and vibe, but it’s loads of fun.

You’ll be able to play as Horseman Strife for the first time, shooting down angels and demons along the way.

Two-player mode is available, and you can swap between War and Strife at will. The game has you taking on Lucifer, the demon king who is threatening to interrupt the balance that the Council has maintained throughout existence.

You’ll be going to hell, battling hordes of demons and angels along the way.

The game takes place before the original, so it’s a lot of fun for anyone who wants to know more about how Darksiders and the origin of the Seven Seals took place. A mature game for a mature audience, Darksiders will contain content that is not suited for all ages.

As a player, you’ll be helping to restore the world’s balance, take on Lucifer and do it while you grow in strength and power. Unlock new abilities, enhance weapons and also collect creature cores.

marvel avengers

6. Marvel Avengers

Marvel is really boosting their franchise, and the Avengers video game is slated for a May 15, 2020 release. Play as your favorite character, whether it be Thor, Iron Man or Black Widow – among many others.

An accident occurs during A-Day, and rumors start to spread that Captain America is dead.

The team was demonstrating all of their new, advanced gear when the accident occurred. The entire team disbands, and superheroes are outlawed from the world. But as villains start to pop up, it becomes apparent that all of Marvel’s characters have to team up to take back the world that they love.

There are co-op modes, customizable heroes and continuous gameplay.

The story is unique, so even if you’re the biggest Marvel junky in the world, you’ll only be able to experience this story in Marvel’s Avengers.

minecraft dungeons

7. Minecraft: Dungeons

Minecraft is back, sort of, and the release will be sometime in the second-quarter of 2020. The game still has the pixelated graphics and blocks that people love, but you won’t be building or crafting.

Instead, you’ll be jumping into dungeons that are all randomly generated with traps, puzzles, monsters and treasures.

Use the armor and weapons you want. Fun and laid-back, you don’t pick a class, but you will go in hacking away at enemies. The game is a lot like the original Diablo, and it’s all about family fun.

If you were a fan of World of Warcraft or any other MMORPG, think of Dungeons as the fun game that allows you to jump in a dungeon without all of the stress of worry about DPS meters.

halo infinite

8. Halo Infinite

Halo Infinite will return with Master Chief in 2020, but fans will be wondering if the game will include microtransactions. The title will be released on Xbox Project Scarlett, so it will take advantage of all new technology.

But it’s also going to be what’s considered a “spiritual reboot,” The game takes place after the title’s last installment, and Master Chief is rescued from space.
Gameplay was not even available during E3 2019, so players are not sure what the game will offer. A lot of fans are worried that the game may be a bust because of the lack of gameplay information available, but we’re not too sure.

Halo has done very well in keeping their franchise thriving.

Developers claim that they have done a lot of reflection on what worked and didn’t work in previous installments of the game. They claim to have learned a lot and will be mixing in the elements of the game that fans loved while taking out the elements that has seen the franchise fall from favor.

There will be no switching back to Spartan Locke as fans continue the story for Master Chief starting after Halo 5. He also seems to be wearing his iconic armor which will hopefully make fans forget about the past failures in the series.

But you will notice that there is a blue helmet, which has many fans intrigued as to what this helmet means for players. There’s also rumors that an open world environment will be featured, and for fans of the franchise, this will be a welcomed addition.

cuphead

9. Cuphead

Cuphead is a magical adventure, and while it may not be a game for everyone, it will feature two cartoons that look like they were created in the 1930s. Cuphead was created with the same audio techniques of the past, and you’ll be able to play single player or co-op modes.

You’ll run around strange worlds, learn super moves and uncover hidden secrets along your journey.

New weapons and powers also await.

The game is centered around continual boss fights, and it’s all about running around, shooting and having fun. It’s a game that has quickly become a cult favorite. The game was originally developed by an indie developer, and it has since sold over four million copies.

It’s a game that everyone will want to give a try, and the developer has also offered immense patches, updates and numerous DLCs to keep the game fun and exciting for players. If you’re a fan of the old 1930s cartoons, you’ll want to get your hands on Cuphead and give it a try – it’s hours of fun.

vampire the masquerade bloodlines 2

10. Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

Bloodlines 2 is expected in March 2020, but there’s no firm release date just yet. You’re thrown into Seattle at a time in the world when vampires are in disarray. Factions are fighting to take their own piece of the city, and you have to deal with this power struggle.

Some groups are attacking humans, forcing humans to turn – it’s a big no-no in the vampire community.

Cities are often without their leaders, and you’ll be running through 25 to 30 hours of gameplay as many different clans. We know that you’ll be able to play as Venture, Tremere, Toreadfor, Brujah and Malkavian clans.

Meet many of the blood founders, and eliminate the clans that are starting to turn humans without proper approval.

dying light 2

11. Dying Light 2

Dying Light 2 is a zombie adventure that all gamers will love. If you’re being chased by zombies, you’ll want to bash them over their brain-eating heads, but you’ll have so much adrenaline running through your veins that you’ll be jumping off the walls.

It’s a matter of life and death.

Well, parkour has been added to the game that allows you to use the environment and buildings to your advantage. There’s also a DLC to explore the countryside. The map is four times larger than the original, and your actions have an impact on the entire world.

Crafting is better, drugs give you special powers and you have an array of tools at your disposal to torture zombies at your sadistic whim.

But you may be overwhelmed at times when zombies decide that they’re going to come after you in groups so large they’re all standing shoulder-to-shoulder.

watch dogs legion

12. Watch Dogs: Legion

March is going to be a big month with Legion coming out. The action-adventure allows you to play as 9 million characters, and it’s a world where Scotland has left the UK. Different and fun, the game allows you to play as anyone that you interact with in the world.

Play with friends, or enjoy solo play.

You’ll be able to play among three main class types: Infiltrator, Hacker or Enforcer.

You can choose different citizens which may have their own special perks. There is one catch: death is forever. If you get your character in a sticky situation, they’re dead for good. That adds a unique element to the game.

But don’t worry, you’ll have millions of options to try and make sense of the new London.

There are a lot of reasons to buy an Xbox Live gift card for friends, family or coworkers this coming holiday season. The games we covered are set to be some of the largest titles release in years.
