Bleeding Edge
  • 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.

This title, much like past installments, encourages players to work together in a team format. As a result, players will join together as a skilled operative unit going through the main campaign. In fact, it’s been noted that gamers can join together at any time rather than having to mess around in a lobby. Likewise, if you’re not interested in going through the campaign, there will be a competitive PvP mode where two groups of tactical teams will go against each other.


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

Anthem is the next video game title being released under development studio BioWare. Keeping with the trend of a futuristic sci-fi setting much like their Mass Effect releases, Anthem will also be set in the future where humans have colonized alien planets.

We’re waiting to hear more information regarding the game, though we do know that players will be able to explore and fight against alien hostiles together. BioWare has developed Anthem to be a four-player cooperative gameplay experience if you wish to join in with a few friends and it seems that this could be a bit familiar territory for players who enjoyed the Destiny franchise.


GTFO

GTFO is all about teamwork as you and your crew head into the dark underground complex to fight off horrifying creatures.

World War Z is a third-person shooter that was developed based on the 2006 novel release of the same name. Players will be fighting for survival from hordes of undead zombies. However, the game will take players across different parts of the world such as New York, Tokyo, and Moscow. While the game is a straight forward experience that can be played alone, World War Z really thrives with a few gamers jumping into the game. There are a few different competitive modes as well, for instance, if you rather add a bit more complexity to the game, players could opt for going head-to-head all while dealing with a horde of zombies. The game has since already released and you can check out our Before You Buy video coverage of it right up above.
