The Last Of Us Part 2 NAUGHTYDOG

2020 may have started slow, and certainly was slammed with its fair share of major game delays so far, but it's still shaping up to be a great year for video games. There are so many major releases coming this year that it was hard to whittle this list down to only five games. Here are some of our most hyped picks that we think you should check out.

Resident Evil 3 Remake

After the successful launch of Resident Evil 2 Remake, it was all but confirmed that Capcom will try to push out more remakes. And that’s exactly what happened. On December of last year, the publishing giant revealed the announcement trailer for RE3 Remake and got the fans all hyped up. Not only will the fans get a reimagined version of a classic childhood game, but Capcom also decided to bundle it with Resident Evil: Resistance, a separate online multiplayer game, for no extra cost. If you thought RE2 Remake was scary because of Mr. X, then boy are you in for a surprise. Just wait until you hear the iconic “STARSSSS” shouted by Nemesis, who now fills the shoes of the customary unkillable enemy that will follow you for the majority of the game. Resident Evil 3 Remake is set to launch on April 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

 

The Last Of Us Part 2

If you liked the original Last of Us (which of course you did), then you know how much of a big deal its sequel is. The game is set five years after the events of its predecessor and will follow a grown-up Ellie. While the first game centers on love, director Neill Druckmann stated that Part II will center on hate. The sequel will bring back the “Listen Mode” which you can use to hear enemies through walls. Guard Dogs have also been introduced that can track Ellie's scent. So, you are going to have to be more careful when creeping around. Ellie’s father figure, Joel, will also return in some capacity, but not much is known about the story. Thankfully, we don’t have to wait much longer. The Last Of Us Part 2 is a PlayStation 4 exclusive and will launch on May 29.

 

Doom Eternal

Doom Eternal has been making headlines for all the right reasons. The game is a sequel to 2016's critically acclaimed Doom, which itself is a soft-reboot for the franchise. Developers claim that Eternal will be twice as big as its predecessor and will offer twice the variety of enemies. So that’s 22 hours of mayhem confirmed. The game also ditched its traditional multiplayer mode and has replaced it with something called Battlemode, where a fully buffed Doom Slayer will fight against two player-controlled demons. Developers want the MP mode to feel like you are playing the campaign, but with your friends. You won’t have to wait that long to get your hands on Doom Eternal, as the game is due on March 20 for PC, PlayStation 4, Stadia, Xbox One, A Switch port is also planned, which will release later in the year.

From the developers that have mastered the art of making zombie games, comes Dying Light 2. Its predecessor, Dying Light, is unique compared to all the other zombie games in the industry due to its carefully crafted parkour mechanics. The sequel promises to be much bigger and more complex than its predecessor, Dying Light 2's developer’s claim that the story and environment of Dying Light 2 will change drastically according to the player’s decision. Unfortunately, you will not be able to play the game just yet, DL2 was delayed indefinitely as developers need more time to make true on their promises. We do not have a new release date yet, but developers have said that more information will be revealed in the coming months. The game will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

 

Cyberpunk 2077

Did you really think that we would make this list without having Cyberpunk 2077 in it? Oh boy, where do I even begin with this one? Cyberpunk 2077 is an upcoming role-playing game developed and published by CD Projekt Red. The game takes place in the dystopian Night City, California where the world is divided into six unique areas that the player will explore throughout the game. You play as a customizable character named V, where you will do jobs for some very “questionable” people. Cyberpunk is based on a tabletop role-playing game written by Mike Pondsmith. After an unfortunate delay, the game will now arrive on September 19 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC.
