Top 10 New PC Games Coming in 2020

#10 Skull & Bones

  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: Online Only 4 Players
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Yes

Ubisoft did a fantastic job when it came to portraying a pirate’s life on the sea in their Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag installment. Taking most of the gameplay mechanics from the game, Ubisoft is gearing up for their next pirate-themed video game, Skull & Bones. Within the game, players will be set out in the open seas in order to track down profitable ships to battle and loot.

Players will take control as the captain as you steer the ship in rough waters while calling out shots to be fired at your target. There is also a bit of strategy to the game with ship upgrade capabilities and what appears to be a companion level progression for other pirate crews.

 

#9 Twin Mirror

  • Developer: Dontnod Entertainment
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive: N/A

Dontnod Entertainment has a new episodic adventure title for players to enjoy. The development studio may be best known for their Life is Strange series but the next episodic journey coming this year that’s not attached to the Life is Strange franchise is Twin Mirror. This is an upcoming psychological thriller which follows a protagonist named Sam who returns back to his old hometown to attend a funeral service of his best friend. Things take a turn for the worse when he awakens with no memories of the previous day while covered in blood.

This title still has plenty of questions left unanswered though as it stands right now, gamers who are interested in the title can expect the first episode to release at least some point this year. Now if you’re familiar with Dontnod Entertainment’s Life is Strange series then you may know that the second installment has been iffy in terms of just when episodes are released. As a result, some gamers are experiencing some longer wait times between episodes though we’re hoping that is not the case for Twin Mirror. However, it seems that there are only three episodes for this upcoming project.

 

#8 Dying Light 2

  • Developer: Techland
  • Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: Online Only 4 Players
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

The sequel to Dying Light is launching in 2020. Once again, players will be fighting against a horde of undead with stronger enemies lurking out at night. One of the new elements that the game will be bringing to the table is the narrative journey.

This time around, within Dying Light 2 players will have some control on the story. Missions will give players more freedom in choice likewise there are dialogue options which can drastically alter your protagonist’s journey and gameplay.

#7Watch Dogs Legion

 

  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, Google Stadia
  • Release: March 6, 2020
  • Online Co-op: 4 Players
  • Competitive: N/A

Ubisoft is bringing out a new entry to the Watch Dogs franchise this coming year. Watch Dogs Legion will be taking place in London where a new regime has taken control of the United Kingdom. Instead of having a single protagonist to go through the campaign, Ubisoft developed the game to have players take on a number of different characters. Overall, players will be recruiting NPCs to join DedSec, for instance in the demo showcased during E3 2019, players were looking for a character skilled with drones and from there its a hunt to track down a character with the particular skill set.

Once you recruit the character, players will be able to take control as that character to progress. However, if that character dies during the game then they will be lost forever meaning you’ll be switching through an assortment of characters.

 

#6 Little Nightmares 2

 

  • Developer: Tarsier Studios
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, NS
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive: N/A

Little Nightmares II was a surprise reveal from the development Tarsier Studios at Gamescom 2019. The studio kept things hush-hush until it was ready to unveil it onto the masses. While the Gamescom 2019 unveil only showcased a small announcement trailer, we learned a few little tidbits about the overall title. For starters, we know that the story will take place in a new area and even a brand new protagonist. However, some of the more fine details have been kept a secret from fans until it gets closer towards its release date.

With that said, we do know that the game will be quite a bit longer compared to Little Nightmares. This bit of news comes from Twinfinite who was at Gamescom and got a chance to speak with Producer Lucas Roussel and Senior Narrative Designer, Dave Mervik. It was then unveiled that Little Nightmares II would be longer while also adding more environments, variety, and enemies. This was after some of the feedback came in from the first Little Nightmares.

 

#5 Cuphead The Delicious Last Course

 

  • Developer: Studio MDHR
  • Publisher: Studio MDHR
  • Platforms: PC, XBO
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: Local Only 2 Players
  • Competitive: 2 Players

Cuphead brought back an old retro classic video game feel and vibe. Designed to be an old 1930s cartoon, players went through a game as a mug who must deliver a number of souls to the devil. However, each soul would be a battle as they are tucked away in a boss fight.

Majority of the game was centered around boss fights with players having to remember certain patterns and moves in order to progress. If you enjoyed the game then you may want to pick up the upcoming DLC known as The Delicious Last Course. This will bring in a brand new level with additional boss fights. Likewise, the DLC will give players a new playable character known as Ms. Chalice.

 

#4 Halo Infinite

 

  • Developer: 343 Industries
  • Publisher: Xbox Game Studios
  • Platforms: PC, Project Scarlett, XBO
  • Release: Q4 2020
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Competitive: TBA

During E3 2019’s Microsoft Xbox press conference we got our first real look at Halo Infinite. While we didn’t get any gameplay footage, we did get a little synopsis clip. It seems that the game will take place on a Halo Ring where humanity has fallen. It’s up to Master Chief to once again to turn the tides against the hostiles. We’re still waiting to get more information about the game, but fans have discovered a hidden Cortana audio message from the E3 2019 trailer. The message is a bit vague but it seems that a fragment of Cortana is still around but it’s unknown just how big of a character role she will play when Halo Infinite launches.

 

#3 Death Stranding

 

  • Developer: Kojima Productions
  • Publisher: 505 Games (PC)
  • Platforms: PS4, PC
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: Online
  • Competitive Multiplayer: No

Kojima Productions, the studio created by Hideo Kojima after his split with Konami, had been teasing its debut title to the world in a variety of cryptic trailers. Death Stranding left players perplexed as to what they would encounter when they finally got the game. However, leading up to its initial release, the game was labeled a PlayStation 4 exclusive. That turns out to be true but only in a console sense. Since then, Death Stranding has been unveiled for the PC platform as well and it’s slated to launch sometime during the summer of 2020.

This game follows a man who is more or less a delivery guy that’s tasked with going across the world and deliver goods while humanity is suffering from supernatural creatures. It’s certainly a unique game and Hideo Kojima is one to provide big cinematic experiences for players. Unfortunately, since the game will be launching on November 8, 2019, a lot of the secrets may be spoiled to those that are opting for a PC platform releases. Perhaps we may even see some type of exclusive content launch for the PC platform though that’s just some wishful hoping on our part.

 

#2 Doom Eternal

  • Developer: id Software
  • Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
  • Platforms: PC,PS4,XBO, NS
  • Release: March 20, 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Yes

When Doom first got its reboot in 2016, the game became a massive hit. Players were once again thrown into the shoes of Doom Guy as he battles demons in Hell. The game was over-the-top action packed and made it seem that the protagonist could handle any demon that came his way. Now thanks to the Bethesda E3 2019 press conference we know that a sequel is in the works.

The video game will follow the events of the first title where it seems that Hell has arrived on Earth. Doom Guy will once again have to blast away countless demons in order to save humanity from the brink of destruction. Gameplay has shown the protagonist fighting off a slew of demonic monsters that have ran rampant across the city. There doesn’t seem to be really any significant change to the gameplay mechanics from the Doom reboot so we fully expect the same over-the-top action-packed and intense quality of gameplay to show up for the sequel.

 

#1 Cyberpunk 2077

 

  • eveloper: CD Projekt Red
  • Publisher: CD Projekt
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: April 16, 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive: Post-Launch

Ever since its announcement, there have been gamers around the world who are excited to see Cyberpunk 2077 launch into the market. This video game comes from the development team, CD Projekt Red, who got their worldwide fame after the success they had with The Witcher trilogy. Now that the developers had wrapped up the trilogy their new focus is on the next IP video game adaptation. Cyberpunk 2077 is still an open world RPG but unlike The Witcher, this game takes place years into the future where crime and greed rule the world.

We know that this game will put players into the role of a mercenary named V who takes on odd jobs in order to build up his or her street cred. The higher your street cred the more lucrative your jobs will become. This game features a rather lived in a world so far from the gameplay footage shown off, but with that said, we’re still waiting to see more of the fine details on what exactly you can expect exploring the in-game world. One element that you may find of interest is the choices the developers will present players throughout the campaign and situations. It seems that missions are set up in a way that allows players to decide on how to actually accomplish them. Furthermore, depending on your choices and actions, gamers will receive multiple different endings giving an incentive to go back and replay the game
