The Last Of Us Part 2
  • Developer: Naughty Dog
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: TBA

The Last of Us launched back in 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and since its release, the IP grew into a phenomenon. Developers Naughty Dog starts by ripping your heart at the start and leave you desperately wanting to unfold more of the narrative. Not only did The Last of Us hold an incredible narrative storyline, but the game also featured a widely beloved action-adventure experience.

Within the first title, players predominately took on the role of Joel who was in charge of delivering a young girl named Ellie to an anti-government organization. Most of the world has become decayed with a fungus type virus turning most of humanity into a zombie-like creature.

This resulted in a grand adventure full of stealth and action as you battle not only the infected but also other dangerous groups of civilians seeking to survive by any means. You’ll, of course, run into all sorts of interesting and bizarre individuals on your journey within the first title and we expect that experience to easily bleed over into the upcoming sequel.

Not too many details have been released so far with The Last of Us Part 2. From what we know so far is that the game narrative will take place five years after the events of The Last of Us and that players can expect Joel along with Ellie to return.

Beyond Good & Evil 2
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: TBA
  • Release: TBA

Beyond Good & Evil first hit the market back in 2003 and it easily left gamers itching for a sequel, but since its release, that fabled sequel has been under wraps. That was until 2017 when Beyond Good & Evil 2 was revealed, though unfortunately for those looking to continue on with the first narrative, this next title is actually a prequel.

We know that the game will follow our protagonist from a struggling pirate to a captain of a massive star-faring vessel. If this upcoming Beyond Good & Evil 2 is anything like the first title in the series then we can expect some entertaining narrative full of adventure. Likewise, this will be an open-world video game but it’s uncertain how active the in-game world will be or if there are events available to take part of when you’re freely explore.

Days Gone
  • Developer: SIE Bend Studio
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: 2019

Days Gone is an upcoming action-adventure title surrounding a post-apocalyptic world setting. Originally, the game was slated to launch in 2018 but it has since been pushed back until at some point in 2019.

Players take on the role of a man named Deacon St. John, who was once a former bounty hunter but now Deacon will have to use his skills for a whole different purpose. Instead of tracking down and bringing in the wanted, Deacon will need to use his finely tuned abilities as a means to survive this zombie apocalypse. The game will play out somewhat similarly with the zombies found in Dying Light. Depending on the time of day and the conditions could result in harder creatures to deal with. However, players will have the ability to complete the different objectives with however they see fit such as going in guns blazing or using the stealth technique.


Kingdom Hearts III
  • Developer: Square Enix
  • Publisher: Square Enix
  • Platforms: PS4, XBO
  • Release: January 29, 2019

Get ready to join Sora and his gang as he embarks on another adventure within Kingdom Hearts III. This third installment is a game that fans have been waiting for years now and thankfully the wait is slowly coming to an end. Players will be able to join Sora and fight off evil with the help of fan favorite Disney characters in January of 2019.

Being the latest installment, we can’t wait to see just what new franchises have been implemented into the title that has yet to be mentioned. As always, there will be plenty of puzzles and boss fights featured throughout the game.


Dying Light 2
  • Developer: Techland
  • Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2019

During Microsoft’s E3 2018 press conference, we got a look at the upcoming installment of Dying Light. Dying Light 2 will take place fifteen years into the zombie apocalypse where most of humanity has fallen and only small shells of society continue to fight for survival.

Players are introduced to a small city within Europe which acts as a safe haven from the zombie threats that lurk outside. However, this city is filled with butting factions leaving players with the ability to work with different factions or pin them against each other. As a result, players will have more freedom of choice that will result in gameplay narrative consequences. Combat still mainly revolves around fast-paced gunplay and melee weapons with zombies being more lethargic during the day.


Jedi: Fallen Order

  • Developer: Respawn Entertainment
  • Publisher: Electronic Arts
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2019

During EA’s E3 2018 press conference, we got a few sparse details in regards to Respawn Entertainment’s upcoming Star Wars video game. We’ve known for a few years that the Titanfall developers were working on a single-player Star Wars video game but until now, we had no idea what to expect.

Apparently, this new Star Wars game will be mature and feature a dark and gritty world. The setting will take place after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. Players will be stepping into the role of a surviving Padawan in a dark age where Jedi are being hunted down.

Gears of War 5
  • Developer: The Coalition
  • Publisher: Microsoft Studios
  • Platforms: XBO, PC
  • Release: 2019

Gears of War 5, or otherwise now known as simply Gears 5, will follow a new protagonist, Kait Diaz. Within the game, Kait has been dealing with visions and it’s leading her to drop away from The Coalition Army. Within the game, players are potentially seeking out the truth behind the Locust origins but the journey that Kait will endure will be difficult.

We’ll see a number of new locations to visit and of course a plethora of enemies you’ll need to fire or saw through. Of course, for now, the game is only slated to release sometime in 2019.
