The Cycle is set in the future where the galaxy is owned by various factions but it’s a cutthroat business as each wish to expand. In order to expand, they’ll need someone to do all the dirty work and that’s where you come in. Players are contractors who are sent out into distant worlds to gather resources and hunt wildlife but there’s a growing number of other contractors who are after goods as well so you’ll either have to work together or carefully take out the competition. While the goal is to gather up as many resources as you can find there is a time limit attached. Players will be forced into getting off the planet before being trapped for good and that itself can be a difficult task.
- Developer: Ninja Theory
- Publisher: Xbox Games Studios
- Platforms: PC, XBO
- Release: 2019
Ninja Theory who crafted up Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has a new interesting title coming exclusively to the Xbox One and PC platforms. The video game is a brawler that puts players into teams, similar to Overwatch or Paladins. In the game, players will have an assortment of characters to select and each will likely have their own unique attributes or abilities. Likewise, the characters will be broken into classes such as an assassin or tank. Players will need to work together and flesh out their roster full of character classes to win matches. Likewise, being such a different style of game from Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, we’re interested in seeing how well this game handles when it does release. Unfortunately, no specific release date was attached to the game quite yet other than an alpha build being ready sometime during this summer.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint
- Developer: Ubisoft
- Publisher: Ubisoft
- Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
- Release: October 4, 2019
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon is making a return in 2019. The video game is set to follow after the events of Tom Clancy’s Wildlands and will retain some of the attributes that made that particular game different compared to other installments from the franchise such as being set in an open world environment. News is still a bit scarce at the time of writing this but it does look like the game will follow a team of special force operatives who are sent to an island owned by a billionaire entrepreneur and philanthropist by the name of Jace Skell. Skilled and worldwide known for his technological advances, it appears that evil regimes have managed to secure plenty of Skell’s products to use as a weaponize weapon.

- Release: September 13, 2019
Borderlands is a successful video game franchise though despite having a following, we haven’t had a third main installment since Borderlands 2 launched in 2012. However, in a surprise announcement during PAX East, we got the announcement of Borderlands 3 which is slated to launch in September of this year. We haven’t got too many details about the game at the moment, but apparently, this time around there will be four new vault hunters and two cult leader antagonists to deal with. This game is likely going to have plenty of information roll out during E3 of this year but so far the trailer footage revealed so far looks to be the traditional gameplay we’ve come to know and love from the franchise.
Now you will want to take note that this game does, to some dismay, have an exclusive deal with Epic Games Store. When the game launches, it will be a timed exclusive to the Epic Games marketplace launcher so if you’re wanting to enjoy the game on Steam then you’ll have to wait a bit longer.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection
- Developer: 343 Industries
- Publisher: Microsoft
- Platforms: XBO, PC
- Release: 2019 (PC)
Halo is finally really making its comeback to the PC platform. After already being released on the Xbox One platform, the Halo: The Master Chief Collection is finally making its way on the PC platform this year. Those who may not be familiar with the collection, this previously released in 2014 for the Xbox One and it offers gamers an overhaul edition of the first few video game installments. Players would get to enjoy Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, along with the addition of Halo Reach later this year. Needless to say, this is a big franchise and as a result it got an overwhelmingly positive response to the announcement from gamers online. While we don’t have a specific release date attached to the collection the PC platform, we’re sure that Microsoft and 343 Industries can expect a number of units being sold when it finally hits the marketplace. Now all we have to wait for is Halo 5: Guardians to make its way on the PC platform.
- Developer: The Coalition
- Publisher: Xbox Game Studios
- Platforms: PC
- Release: 2019
Gears Tactics is one of those games that got a brief reveal in E3 2018 and since then we’ve really been waiting to hear more. The Gears franchise, in general, is rather big and quite known since it was released originally on the Xbox 360. Now years later we’re moving up to our fifth main installment to the game series with Gears Tactics being a tactical strategy title.
Again, details are still scarce and we’re waiting to hear more information hopefully during E3 of this year. However, what is known so far is that the game will take place twelve years prior to Gears of War with a new squad.
