This past year was a great one for gamers, especially those who enjoy playing the PlayStation 4. God of War was named the best game of the year, while Red Dead Redemption 2 quickly gained popularity around the world. On the other hand, battle royale games such as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) and Fortnite marked the year for PC gamers. Now with the new year comes a new list of titles, so let’s take a look at the top five games for 2019. Some of these highly-anticipated titles are set to debut soon.
Top five games for 2019: Resident Evil 2 (Remake)
A remake of one of the most popular Resident Evil games is slated for release on Jan. 25. It’s a horror classic which follows Leon S. Kennedy, the main character from Resident Evil 4. Accompanied by Claire Redfield, Kennedy must survive an apocalyptic zombie outbreak in the imaginary Raccoon City. The game combines elements from all the other games in the franchise. The game has been remastered for today’s newer technology and improved graphics.
The game will be available on PCs, the Xbox One and the PS4.
Top five games for 2019: Anthem
Gamers have come to expect a lot from EA’s BioWare studio, which has been behind many successful titles, including Mass Effect, Dragon Age and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Anthem, which will be available for all major platforms, is scheduled for release on Feb. 22.
The game is played online, and players and friends can team up on a plethora of missions. The graphics looks great and and offer plenty of opportunities for exploration. The characters can fly through the air, and the game is all about action, so it’s expected to be a lot of fun.
Top five games for 2019: Devil May Cry 5
Capcom is marking 2019 with beautiful game remakes and bringing back heroes we’ve almost forgotten. A new Devil May Cry game has been expected for a long time, especially after the not-so-prominent DMC: Devil May Cry, which was released in 2013.
Devil May Cry 5 is set for release on March 8. The trailer released last year revealed that the title has maintained the franchise’s original slick style but also introduced a lot of new features. As always, the characters are quite interesting, and the game is action-packed. Devil May Cry 5 will be available for PCs, the Xbox One and the PS4.
Top five games for 2019: Days Gone
The game introduces the zombies and undead in pretty unique ways. The player must remain focused and try to stay on higher ground at all times because floods of zombies can surround him faster than the player can think. The zombies of Days Gone aren’t like the zombies from Left 4 Dead or Resident Evil; they’re more like swarms of zombies looking for brains. The game is set for release on Apr. 26.
Top five games for 2019: Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled (Remake)
For Activision, 2019 will be just as full of nostalgia as the previous two years. The company remastered all three parts of the popular Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and the game Spyro The Dragon. Now 80s and 90s kids have a lot to look forward to, as Crash Team Racing is set to return on June 21.
You can still play as Crash, his friends and his enemies and race against a computer or your friends. However, you can now also race online using some new skins. There’s no doubt that the game will create a lot of excitement among older gamers while also getting new players hooked. The game is currently set for release on the PS4 and Xbox One, but there’s a chance it could be released for the PC at a later day. The N. Sane Trilogy was initially launched on the PS4 and Xbox One and then released for PCs one year later.
