The year 2019 has more or less fulfilled all of our expectations regarding games. This new 2020 year won’t disappoint us either, because some big titles are announced to be released this year. Every gamer probably can’t wait for them to be in stores, both online and physical ones, so there is no doubt that everyone is on the lookout and carefully following the release dates. So, let’s see what the big titles are waiting to be released and when they are due.
CD Projekt Red seems prepared for another huge project around fantasy series which has the potential to be as big as The Witcher 3. We have heard a lot about Cyberpunk 2077 and it seems that it will be a huge success even though they have announced some delays. The game is suggested to be similar to the games like Thief, Dishonored and Deus Ex. In Cyberpunk 2077 you will be able to find a variety of ways through the game and different situations, and it will mostly depend on the character you wish to develop and choices you make.
The story elements are certainly intriguing, and it has been announced that the big name Keanu Reeves will play Johnny Silverhand, a very important character in the story. He will be a big part of your decision making and guiding through the game, and there will be a lot of gray morality mixed into the storyline. However, the game is going to be big and it may require a lot in order to be fully enjoyed, so you may want to upgrade your gaming PC or get other platforms in order to play in peace.

This sequel will focus more on Ellie and her journey across the country seeking vengeance.

Even though Final Fantasy VII is a remake, there is something special about it. It is not a straight remake of the original, but it’s made to be more like reimagining.

The important story beats, original locations and iconic battles in Midgar are intact, but everything in the game has a more modern flair to it now. Also, there is real-time combat and you can actively level up your attributes, and attributes of your party’s weapons and Materia loadouts.

There have been some great memes and jokes about Half-Life 3 ever being released, but there may be hope. Even though Half-Life Alyx isn’t Half-Life 3, it’s a great VR exclusive that will be capturing the spirit of the entire franchise and push some boundaries for VR. It’s a canonical story and the story occurs sometime before Episode 2. Your character is Alyx Vence, and her father Eli Vence is the center of the mystery. Even though it’s a VR game, the interactivity with the environment is heightened and you can scavenge for ammo and use magnetic gravity gloves to pull a grenade off a Combine soldier and throw it at them.

The Wasteland series is one of the biggest successes of Brian Fargo’s career and after two first parts, there is now a third. Wasteland 3 promises to deliver some more advanced tactical turn-based systems and it’s also changing the setting to snowbound Colorado. The game is a story-driven multiplayer campaign, but the dialogue systems are new and they were written by the writers from Torment: Tides of Numera. What is more, Wasteland 3 will be a bit more comical than the previous outings, which will be great to pair with the writing team’s talent to write a bit more darker fantasies.
