Anthem
  • Developer: BioWare
  • Publisher: Electronic Arts
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: March 2019

Anthem is an upcoming video game being developed under BioWare. The development studio is well-known for delivering in-depth RPG video game titles and their latest seems to follow suit of their past video game franchise, Mass Effect.

Within Anthem, players will be sent to a different world that is being charted out. Most of the humanity within the world are kept safe behind giant walls. You take on the role of a Freelancer, a specialist that is capable of going beyond the wall in order to explore and progress work that is needed to be done.

However, in order to do so, players will have to equip a specialized suit known as a Javelin. These suits will allow players to easily traverse the lands and deal with any hostilities that may come their way.

 


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

The fifth main installment to the Gears of War franchise is slated to launch within the 2019 year. Within the game, players will be stepping into the role of Kait Diaz, a COG army member that has been dealing with haunting dreams. It’s within these dreams that Kait feels that she can follow a new journey, one that will reveal the true origins of the Locust.

While we’re still waiting for more fleshed out details regarding the upcoming video game, it seems that the same gameplay mechanics that the franchise is known for will make a return in this upcoming installment. At the heart of the game, this is still a cover-based shooter with likely cooperative gameplay throughout.

 


Jedi: Fallen Order

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

Respawn Entertainment, the development team who has brought out the Titanfall franchise, has been working on a secret Star Wars project. For quite some time now, we’ve known that the developers were working on a Star Wars related video game, but no details regarding the title were released.

That all changed during EA’s E3 2018 press conference, where we got a few very small details regarding this upcoming title. Apparently, the video game is called Jedi: Fallen Order, which is a single-player video game narrative journey.

Within the game, players will be taking on the role of a padawan that managed to survive after Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. Set during the dark ages, players will attempt to survive in a world where the Jedi is outnumbered and quickly being hunted down.


Crackdown 3
  • Developer: Reagant Games, Sumo Digital
  • Publisher: Microsoft Studios
  • Platforms: PC, XBO
  • Release: February 22, 2019

Since the release of Crackdown 2 in 2010, we’ve been waiting for a brand new installment to the franchise. The Crackdown 3 video game announcement came in 2014 and it has since been in development under Ruffian Games. Now the video game is gearing up for a launch in 2019 where players will once again step into the role of an agent.

The Agency has dealt with the last terrorist organization a number of years ago but now a new terrorist threat has emerged. This new terrorist group had managed to kill power across the entire world forcing The Agency to deal with this new threat.

We can still expect the overall same gameplay mechanics from the past installments but there is a heavy emphasis on destruction. Developers have created a game in which entire structures can be brought down during combat which we imagine will make for some very action-packed moments.

 


Doom Eternal
  • Developer: id Software
  • Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2019

Doom was a massive hit originally and the franchise recently had a resurgence thanks to the 2016 reboot. Players once again stepped into the role of Doom Guy as he completely demolished the demonic threat that came his way.

This new installment slated to launch in 2019 doesn’t have any real concrete details quite yet. From the teaser released, it seems that the game will focus on hell on earth. However, we’ll have to wait for the full rundown when the game gets featured during this year’s QuakeCon event.
