Sony’s PlaySta­tion con­sole has dom­i­nat­ed the con­sole mar­ket for the past few years. How­ev­er, not only is the PlaySta­tion 5 launch­ing this year for the fes­tive win­ter sea­son, but the Xbox Series X is also slat­ed for release. And the lat­est con­sole has def­i­nite­ly giv­en us some­thing to talk about. Although we still do not know all the details, such as the pow­er of the con­sole, we know for sure that some games will go on sale at the same time that have already been not­ed in the press and made fans look for­ward to the release.

Among the devel­op­ment stu­dios are such well-known names as CD Pro­jekt Red, Ubisoft, THQ Nordic, Tech­land and oth­ers.

We’ll start with those games that are already con­firmed for Xbox Series X, and also look at those that are most like­ly to release at the same time and pos­si­bly be avail­able on mul­ti­ple plat­forms. Let us clar­i­fy that most like­ly, most games for pre­vi­ous ver­sions of the Xbox will also be avail­able on the new prod­uct, how­ev­er, there is no spe­cif­ic infor­ma­tion on this yet.

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II

The first part of this game Hell­blade: Sen­u­a’s Sac­ri­fice was released in 2017 on Win­dows and PS4 plat­forms, in 2018 it became avail­able for Xbox One. The game received pos­i­tive reviews as it looked at men­tal health issues through a dark fan­ta­sy lens.

A sequel to the game was announced at the Game Awards 2019 but has yet to receive an exact release date. Most like­ly, the game will appear either in Decem­ber 2020 or ear­ly 2021.

As for the plot, noth­ing is known about it either, only that the hero­ine will have a new quest, and the trail­er looks much dark­er than the first part. This is say­ing some­thing, as Hell­blade has already become one of the most intense and heavy games. It should be not­ed that the qual­i­ty of the trail­er is also impres­sive, and the devel­op­ers claim that the video was record­ed on a game engine, which makes us sus­pect that the future of con­sole games will be exact­ly like that.

But we can say with con­fi­dence that if the sec­ond part is as good as the first one, then this series of games will not decrease in fans.

Halo Infinite

Fans of the shoot­er Halo also have some­thing to look for­ward to from the Xbox. The sixth game in the main sto­ry series and the fifth game to fea­ture the Mas­ter Chief. The game will take place on the sur­face of the ring world. The trail­er for the game was shown at E3 2018, and the release is sched­uled in par­al­lel with the Xbox One. An inter­est­ing point is that it was orig­i­nal­ly planned to make Halo Infi­nite exclu­sive to the new Xbox mod­el, how­ev­er, in Jan­u­ary 2020, 343 Indus­tries stu­dio rep­re­sen­ta­tives clar­i­fied that the game will have cer­tain advan­tages when play­ing on Xbox Series X, but there are no plans to can­cel access from oth­er There are no Microsoft con­sole ver­sions.

The game def­i­nite­ly attracts the atten­tion of new play­ers with its graph­ics and fea­tures. Fans will sure­ly return for the famil­iar lore and favorite char­ac­ters.

Halo Infi­nite is being released with Xbox sup­port, so it will only be avail­able for Microsoft con­soles.

Cyberpunk 2077

The game instant­ly attract­ed atten­tion from the very moment the first trail­er was released. Fans and the press alike were impressed by the graph­ics, the mix of gen­res, and the famous appear­ance in the Keanu Reeves trail­er. The Pol­ish devel­op­er CD Pro­jekt Red, respon­si­ble for the release of the game, has long earned and con­firmed its rep­u­ta­tion with the release of the The Witch­er series of games. And this was already enough to trans­fer Cyber­punk 2077 to the sta­tus of the most antic­i­pat­ed releas­es.

A lot is already known about the project. The game is played in first-per­son mode, and the main char­ac­ter is V, a mer­ce­nary with a cus­tomiz­able appear­ance. The game also includes RPG ele­ments, so you can choose a class and addi­tion­al fea­tures.

Anoth­er fea­ture of Cyber­punk 2077 is the open world. The main set­ting will be Night City in Cal­i­for­nia, which con­sists of six dis­tricts with dif­fer­ent char­ac­ter­is­tics.

The game is based on the Cyber­punk table­top role-play­ing game that spawned many books, and fran­chise cre­ator Mike Pond­smith advised devel­op­ers on Cyber­punk 2077.

The release date is set for Sep­tem­ber 17, 2020, and the game will be avail­able on var­i­ous plat­forms.

Devel­op­ers Peo­ple Can Fly and pub­lish­er Square Enix have unveiled their brand new sci-fi project with fan­ta­sy ele­ments. Or rather, its own ambi­tious shoot­er, which most like­ly should start a whole series. How­ev­er, the future rests entire­ly on the shoul­ders of Out­rid­ers, in a genre that already has a lot of fan-favorite games. So the task is not an easy one. In order for the project not to be lost among the rest, mem­o­rable dif­fer­ences are need­ed. For­tu­nate­ly, some pub­li­ca­tions have already giv­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty to test the game, so we have the most up-to-date data. For exam­ple, that the char­ac­ter will be able to choose the appear­ance, even if there are not so many options. The main genre is a shoot­er, but the game has enough role-play­ing ele­ments. Char­ac­ters get class choic­es, traits, and a skill tree.

The game fea­tures mul­ti-play­er co-op and even a choice of cam­paign dif­fi­cul­ty. Out­rid­ers feels famil­iar and new at the same time, and per­haps this can play into the hands of the devel­op­ers. The game will go on sale at the end of 2020 and will be avail­able on PC and con­soles.

gods and monsters

A vibrant fan­ta­sy adven­ture game from the cre­ators of Assas­s­in’s Creed that chal­lenges the play­er to save the Greek gods in a world full of myth­i­cal crea­tures. This will be done through tasks, dun­geons and bat­tles. Fans instant­ly found sim­i­lar­i­ties with anoth­er pop­u­lar game — The Leg­end of Zel­da: Breath of the Wild. The world of the game looks like a fairy tale, and the char­ac­ters have received a car­toon­ish design that stands out from the more seri­ous and often dark games with motion cap­ture and real actors.

You can not only choose a char­ac­ter, but also cus­tomize his appear­ance. There are no offi­cial game­play releas­es yet, and infor­ma­tion about the game is very lim­it­ed, but Gods and Mon­sters is already avail­able for pre-order.

As for the more famous release of the devel­op­ers of Assas­s­in’s Creed, a new chap­ter in the series is not yet planned.

Gothic remake

The release of this game is not even sched­uled for 2020, but lat­er, despite the fact that the orig­i­nal game was released back in 2001. It is fair to assume that the release will be delayed until the 20th anniver­sary of the game and this will be a very icon­ic ges­ture.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, there is no guar­an­tee of an exit yet, since the future fate of the project will be deter­mined by the playable teas­er pre­sent­ed by the devel­op­ers.

A new, as yet unnamed stu­dio in Spain is work­ing on the game, and the teas­er is a great oppor­tu­ni­ty to get instant feed­back and rec­om­men­da­tions so as not to dis­ap­point fans of the orig­i­nal Goth­ic. For exam­ple, almost imme­di­ate­ly, play­ers not­ed too bright col­ors, recall­ing that the orig­i­nal game was dark­er than the pop­u­lar “Witch­er” series.

This prece­dent is inter­est­ing not only from the point of view of new game releas­es, because it can open the door for dozens of re-releas­es and revi­sions of old favorite games that will ben­e­fit from mod­ern graph­ics.

Goth­ic game will be designed exclu­sive­ly for next gen­er­a­tion con­soles.

Rainbow Six Quarantine

The game is designed for three play­ers and includes ele­ments of tac­tics and co-op. At the same time, Rain­bow Six Quar­an­tine is a shoot­er and is a spin-off of Rain­bow Six Siege.

As befits a co-op game, it will be sup­port­ed not only by new con­sole mod­els.

Accord­ing to the plot, oper­a­tors will have to face a new kind of mutat­ed alien par­a­sites that can infect not only peo­ple, but every­thing around them. The ene­my is dan­ger­ous, and play­ers will have to put in a lot of effort to defeat it.

The game will be released first on Win­dows, and will lat­er be adapt­ed for con­soles. The release is sched­uled for 2020–2021.

Dying Light 2

Role-play­ing action in the pop­u­lar sur­vival genre, where the play­er has to fight zom­bies. The sequel takes place 15 years after the orig­i­nal game. The main char­ac­ter was Aiden, infect­ed with a virus that turns peo­ple into zom­bies. The virus gives him super­pow­ers, which the play­er will have to use. The game world is com­plete­ly open, and the map is 4 times larg­er than in the orig­i­nal game. Also in Dying Light 2, the play­er’s actions affect the state of the entire world.

The game was announced at E3 in 2018, and in 2019 the devel­op­ers con­firmed that it will be avail­able on dif­fer­ent gen­er­a­tions of con­soles. The exact release date has not yet been spec­i­fied.

Watch Dogs: Legion

A game in which the Lon­don of the near future became an open world, plunged into chaos. The play­er will have to build resis­tance in order to bring his world into a sem­blance of order. Watch Dogs: Legion is one of the few games that has already released graph­ics that has earned pos­i­tive reviews. After the not-so-warm recep­tion of the orig­i­nal game and the low sales of the sequel, all the hopes of the devel­op­ers fall on the con­tin­u­a­tion. The first reviews are very pos­i­tive, although it is still too ear­ly to say how suc­cess­ful the game is. In any case, it will be avail­able on the new Xbox and it is there that you can appre­ci­ate all the fea­tures of the graph­ics.

The Xbox Series X will go on sale at the end of 2020. Although the exact char­ac­ter­is­tics are not yet known, the man­u­fac­tur­ers note that the con­sole will become a com­plete­ly new word in our under­stand­ing of games. New improved graph­ics, sound, increased pow­er and enhanced fea­tures. There is very lit­tle left before the release.

In the mean­time, play­ers who don’t want to wait for the new game can pur­chase the Xbox One X. This con­sole opens up access to numer­ous games in the library, such as Jedi Fall­en Order, Gears of War, NBA 2K20 and more.

An alter­na­tive would be a full-fledged PlaySta­tion 4 Pro con­sole with an even wider selec­tion of games, includ­ing many exclu­sive titles such as Spi­der-Man.

Well, for those who pre­fer to play always and every­where, there is a uni­ver­sal option — Nin­ten­do switch. A small portable con­sole that con­nects to your TV and allows you to play in a com­pa­ny of 2 to 8 peo­ple with addi­tion­al con­trollers.

2020 is full of new releas­es and it is quite pos­si­ble that it will become very bright and mem­o­rable for gamers. There are still a lot of new prod­ucts and announce­ments ahead, which we are look­ing for­ward to.
