5 Videogames We Can’t Wait To Play in 2020
Posted by Raphael Leynes January 13, 2020

2020 is shaping up to be another crazy year in Videogames and if you’re like us, then you can’t wait to get your hands on these games and get cracking.

Marvel’s The Avengers 

Release Date: M̶a̶y̶ ̶1̶5̶,̶ ̶2̶0̶2̶0̶ September 4, 2020
Platform: PS4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, Microsoft Windows

Crystal Dynamics’ upcoming take on Marvel’s Avengers has been met with tepid expectations to say the least due to some less than stellar character designs and what looks like clunky and derivative gameplay. However, we’d be lying if we didn’t say we’re immensely excited about the possibility of it being good. It’s been a hot minute since we’ve had a good superhero action game and heck of a lot longer since we got one starring all of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. In this post Endgame world, nothing could be better to a Marvel fan than being able to fly around in an Iron-Man Suit, Stomp some bad guys as the Hulk or pull off some martial arts wizardry as Black Widow. Here’s hoping that Crystal D, Eidos Montreal and Square Enix do whatever it takes to give us a team up we won’t soon forget.

Ori and The Will Of The Wisps 

Release Date: February 11, 2020
Platform: Xbox One, PC

It’s been almost a decade since Moon Studios’ Ori and the Blind Forest took over our hearts and minds with its gorgeous art style, brilliant Metroidvania gameplay and its simple but powerfully evocative storytelling. It’s sequel, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, looks to recapture that same magic while adding in some unique pixie dust of its own by way of a revamped and more involved combat system  and a much more epic sense of scale in terms of levels and boss creatures.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps will be double jumping, burrowing and air bashing onto XB1 and PC next month! 

 

Last of Us II

Release Date:  May 29, 2020
Platform: Playstation 4

The long awaited sequel to the Naughty Dog masterpiece Last of Us finally arrives right at the tail end of the PS4’s console cycle. Set 5 years, after the first game, in Last of Us II you play as an older Ellie as she deals with the events of the previous game, the death of her partner Dina at the hands of a group of vicious marauders, and a returning Joel. All this while try to survive and develop a society in the midst of the apocalypse brought about by a global pandemic.

With the first game being such a brilliant exercise in videogame storytelling, I’m especially anxious to see what evocative new ways Last of Us 2 will play with our hearts.

Cyberpunk 2077

Release Date: April 16, 2020
Platform:  PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, Microsoft Windows

CD Projekt Red’s hotly anticipated take on futuristic dystopia, Cyberpunk 2077 is well poised to be one of the candidates for 2020’s game of the year. The developer of the excellent The Witcher franchise has channeled their penchant for stellar world-building and evocative storytelling towards the grim and gritty futuristic world of New Los Angeles. We don’t need Keanu to tell us that this is definitely going to be breathtaking.

 

Final Fantasy VII Remastered

Release Date: M̶a̶r̶c̶h̶ ̶3̶,̶ ̶ ̶2̶0̶2̶0̶ April 10, 2020
Platform: Playstation 4

They say you can’t improve upon perfection but Final Fantasy VII Remake will damn sure give it a shot. Rebuilding the seminal PSOne classic from the ground up, updating the graphics and art style, as well as adding in a completely new, flashier and more action-oriented combat system, Square Enix is looking to set the gold, nay, Ruby Weapon standard for what remakes are supposed to be.
