Most Awaited Upcoming Videogames Of 2018-19

Wondering what upcoming games of 2019 you’ll actually want to play? Look no further than the epic list below. Thanks to this year’s E3, we now have tons of new games scheduled to launch sometime in 2019. And while the majority of them won’t have firm release dates announced for quite a while, it still gives us something to look forward to. Plus, you know, some of the games below DO actually have dates.

Take a look at what 2019 has in store for us thus far with the list below,

Resident Evil 2: Remake

Most Awaited Upcoming Videogames Of 2018-19

Developer: Capcom
Publisher: Capcom
Release Date: January 25, 2019
Platform: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Genre: Survival Horror

Once the dust settled on E3 2018, it was clear that Resident Evil 2 Remake was one of the stars of the show. It had been rumored to be coming for months, but upon the trailer’s debut at Sony’s E3 press conference, it was clear that we were in line for something special. Capcom is remaking the original sequel from the ground up and will forgo the original Resident Evil 2’s tank controls with the over-the-shoulder camera angle originally introduced in Resident Evil 4. It’s going to be quite exciting to head back to Raccoon City.

Crackdown 3

Most Awaited Upcoming Videogames Of 2018-19

Developer: Sumo Digital
Publisher: Microsoft Studios
Release Date: February 2019
Platform: PC, Xbox One
Genre: Action-Adventure Sandbox

4 years after its debut at E3 2014, we still have no idea what to expect from Crackdown 3. We got a new trailer at Microsoft’s conference this year, and it appeared to be comprised of in-game footage, but we’re still just as clueless as you are for the most part. Terry Crews now appears to be a prominent aspect of the game. And while we love Crews, his VO work in the latest trailer can be described as over the top at best.

Crackdown 3 is a crucial first-party game for Microsoft. The project has undoubtedly gone through a tumultuous development cycle, but the console really needs this exclusive to pan out well. And if it turns out to be mediocre, well that’s yet another first-party IP for Microsoft down the drain. We’ll find out if it all comes together in February.

Trials Rising

Developer: RedLynx, Ubisoft Kiev
Publisher: Ubisoft
Release Date: February 2019
Platform: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch
Genre: Racing

The physics based motorcycle stunt series is back with Trials Rising. The Trials community will have the ability to create and share tracks with other players across the globe in this rendition. And you’ll also be able to customize your racer and bike with thousands of different items including helmets, jackets and trousers. There are a plethora of landmarks across the globe that will have tracks based upon them. Plenty of modes are incorporated, some new and some old. Announced so far are Tandem Mode, 4-Player offline co-op, Contracts, Asynchronous Challenges, and of course, Online Multiplayer. The game looks like a blast to play solo or with friends. Just don’t forget to wear your helmet.


Developer: BioWare
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Release Date: February 22, 2019
Platform: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Genre: Action Role-Playing

Arguably one of the most exciting games slated for 2019 is BioWare’s hopeful return to form in Anthem. The game wowed when it debuted at E3 in 2017, and a year later, it’s still high on people’s wish lists. The title combines third-person shooting and action RPG elements within a shared open world.

Up to four players can adventure together within their  Javelin suits (think Iron Man). The game is designed for a group, but single-player will be supported as well. A BioWare staple of relationship building is present in Anthem, but there won’t be any romance as in many of the developer’s previous projects.

As you explore Anthem’s shared world by yourself or with friends, you’ll experience earth-shifting environmental disasters, fight against a variety of enemies large and small, and explore ancient locales rich with rewards. February can’t come soon enough.

Days Gone

Developer: SIE Bend
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Release Date: February 22, 2019
Platform: PlayStation 4
Genre: Survival-Horror, Action-Adventure

The more we see of Sony Bend’s Days Gone the more the upcoming title seems to impress. Gone are the days of thinking the project is “just another zombie game”. Instead, it’s proven to provide a compelling lived in world in which you continually stumble upon environmental hazards – whether they be dead or alive.

Days Gone has a lot to live up to if it wants to compete with the pantheon of other first-party Sony exclusives. But something tells us this game will catch a lot of people off guard when it releases in February.

Metro Exodus

Developer: 4A Games
Publisher: Deep Silver
Release Date: February 22, 2019
Platform: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Genre: First-Person Shooter

Metro Exodus picks up the series two years after the events of Metro: Last Light. The game starts off from Last Light’s “Redemption” ending and continues the story of Artyom as he attempts to flee the Metro in Moscow. The title will see Artyom and his wife Anna attempt to travel far east to begin a new life. However, that journey will be more perilous than Artyom or Anna know.

Exodus will feature both sandbox environments and linear levels to progress the plot. The story will take place over the course of a year, with the game’s dynamic weather and day-night cycle constantly changing locales based upon the time of year. 4A Games promises that Exodus will be their “most ambitious project yet”, and if that’s not enough to make it one of your most anticipated upcoming games of 2019 than I don’t know what is.

The Division 2

Developer: Massive Entertainment
Publisher: Ubisoft
Release Date: March 15, 2019
Platform: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Genre: Action RPG

The sequel to The Division moves from the streets of New York City into the nation’s capital. A civil war is breaking out within Washington D.C., and it’s up to The Division to help squash it. Massive is introducing 8 player Raids into The Division 2. And the developers have promised that three episodes of post launch DLC, including new story content and game modes, will be made available to all players for free.

Devil May Cry 5

Developer: Capcom
Publisher: Capcom
Release Date: Early 2019
Platform: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Genre: Action-Adventure

Many speculated that it would be Sony’s E3 conference in which the much rumored Devil May Cry 5 would make its debut. But no, quite the opposite in fact. Microsoft’s E3 briefing got the reveal of a game. And fans of the series couldn’t be more excited.

Both Dante and Nero will return as playable characters in 5. A third playable character will be introduced as well but details are scant at this point. All we know is that the story will take place several years after the events of 4. We’ve already waited about 10 years since the release of Devil May Cry 4. With 5 aiming for Q1 2019, the next iteration of the series is finally in sight.

Total War Three Kingdoms

Developer: Creative Assembly
Publisher: Sega
Release Date: Early 2019
Platform: PC
Genre: Turn-Based Strategy

Total War: Three Kingdoms is the 12th mainline entry in the Total War series. This iteration of the real-time strategy title is set in the Three Kingdoms period where players take control of one of the game’s 11 available factions. Your goal? Eliminate the other 10 to unify China and become its ultimate leader.

Three Kingdoms features a couple of new modes to the series. The first is called Romance (inspired by the novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms) and grants your generals with near superhuman strength. The second, called Classic (based upon the novel Records of the Three Kingdoms), is more historically accurate in that the mode’s generals have their powers removed and can no longer be commanded separately.

Dying Light 2

Developer: Techland
Publisher: Techland Publishing
Release Date: 2019
Platform: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Genre: Survival Horror, First-Person Action RPG

The original Dying Light launched under the radar in January 2015, and it quickly began generating buzz until eventually landing on our list of the best zombie games of all-time. The video game landscape was barren at the time, so upon hearing the game was actually pretty damn good, fans flocked to it. 4 plus years later, Techland hopes to double down on the first iteration’s success with Dying Light 2 which the company revealed at this year’s E3 with a badass trailer.

The sequel takes place 15 years after the first game. Within it, players will be tasked with making various important choices as the story progresses. You can choose to play selfishly, or act in the best interest of the community around you. And your choices will bring about dramatic results regardless of which way you lean. Techland also hired industry veteran Chris Avellone with plans to introduce more RPG elements into their zombie parkour title.

Gears 5

Developer: The Coalition
Publisher: Microsoft Studios
Release Date: 2019
Platform: PC, Xbox One
Genre: Third-Person Shooter

No longer Gears of WarGears 5 hopes to be a big step forward towards the evolution of this iconic Xbox series. The 5th core entry focuses on Kait Diaz’s story and puts her front and center. Without spoiling the events of Gears of War 4, a revelation was made about Kait’s heritage that she and her crew are anxious to track down more information on.

The cast of Gears 4, including JD Fenix, Marcus Fenix, Delmont Walker and the aforementioned Kait are all back. And the game once again supports local split screen or online co-op play. The Coalition looks to be designing more lush environments this go around to help deviate from the franchise’s normal drab, muted tones. We’ll certainly hear a ton about this game next year.

Wolfenstein: Young Blood

Developer: MachineGames
Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
Release Date: 2019
Platform: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch
Genre: First-Person Shooter 

The Wolfenstein series continues with Blazkowicz still gunning to take down the Nazi regime. However this time it’s not B.J. doing the gunning. Wolfenstein: Young Blood takes place in 1980s Paris in which the Nazi party is in full control. The main character in play this go around is not one, but two Blazkowicz’s. They’re the twin daughters of B.J., Jess and Soph.

The upcoming shooter is a standalone follow-up to 2017’s Wolfenstein: The New Colossus. As the main characters are a pair of twin sisters, Young Blood will feature cooperative gameplay as the duo attempt to track down their missing father.

The Last of Us: Part 2

Developer: Naughty Dog
Publisher: Sony
Release Date: TBA
Platforms: PS4
Genre: Action Adventure

Obviously, we’re stoked for The Last of Us: Part 2, which will puck up five years after where we left off, following Joel and Ellie. Of course, we don’t know much at this point, as it’s still early-on. But I tell you what – those trailers we’ve seen so far have been visceral, bloody, and super dark.
