2019 gaming is shaping up to be something special. Here are a few games that you should be looking out for.
Kingdom Hearts 3
This is a game that many people have been waiting for, 13 years to be exact since Kingdom Hearts 2. We are back with Sora, Donald, and Goofy as they adventure between worlds of the Disney-verse. This has been a long time coming, and I’m sure the wait will have been worth it.
This is a single player open world game where you play as a customizable raccoon. Not too much is known about the world but it looks beautiful. We don’t get a lot of single player games in today’s world, but from what’s been shown there is a lot to look forward to.
A looter shooter that seems to be taking a page from other games in the genre (Destiny, Warframe, etc). If you ever wondered what a Mass Effect multiplayer game might look like, this is it. Anthem reminds me of the time spent with the multiplayer mode in that game which isn’t a bad thing.
If you like shooting zombies and open world exploration, this is the game for you. After being delayed, this game is scheduled to come out this year and I can’t wait to see how it plays. It gives me a World War Z movie vibes, in terms of how the zombies chase you. It looks like it might be a fun time.
Resident Evil 2
This is a remake of the popular game that was released in 1998. With one of the most popular video game characters, Leon S. Kennedy and his first day on the job as a police officer. You will also be able to play as Claire Redfield a college student looking for her brother. The 30 minute demo that was available to play since last week was highly impressive. I have no doubt that the full game will continue that sentiment.
Devil May Cry 5
We are getting another entry into this series and it looks amazing. Being another single player game and knowing how challenging it can get I can’t wait. It features the return of Dante and Nero who have been main characters before in this series, along with a new character to play as known as ‘V’. Each of these characters have a different play style so I anticipate that fans and newcomers to the series will have a lot of fun.
The Division 2
This is a looter shooter that continues the story from the first game, where a virus has crippled the US. When the first game came out it was fun but there was some game breaking bugs and very little endgame to keep gamers attention. From what’s been shown there is a lot to look forward to and the game looks like it will be worth checking out.
Mortal Kombat 11
We are getting another entry into the most brutal fighting game ever. It looks amazing and just as gory as ever. There was recently a reveal of some new characters and the story in the game. Every new entry into the series brings a new level of competition, so anyone that is into fighting games this is definitely one to be on the lookout for.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
If you are a fan of the Dark Souls series, this is a game that is for you. You play as a Shinobi that is on a mission of revenge. A single player game that looks like it will test your skills and sanity just like the Dark Souls series. The gameplay has looked outstanding and it’s definitely worth keeping an eye out for.
These are just a few of the games that I have been excited to play. 2019 has many more games that should excite you as well.
