Control
  • Developer: Remedy Entertainment
  • Publisher: 505 Games
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: August 27, 2019

Control is the next video game from developers Remedy Entertainment, who you may know from the Max Payne series. This is an action-adventure style video game which is set in a world in which the United States government has started a division to study weird phenomena that do not react to the laws of reality as we know it. Players take on the role of Jesse Faden, the director who must figure out a way to eliminate a new enemy that has shown up known as Hiss. This adventure will take players into the past of Jesse who has unexplained supernatural powers.


Sea of Solitude
  • Developer: Jo-Mei Games
  • Publisher: Electronic Arts
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2019

Sea of Solitude is an upcoming adventure title being developed by indie studio Jo-Mei Games. We saw this game a bit during E3 2018 where it appears that players will take control of a young woman who is exploring a city that has become submerged under water. Apparently, this location and the creature that dwells within it will reveal just why this young woman has turned into a monster. This game was slated to launch early in 2019 but so far there hasn’t been any signs of it launching at the moment so perhaps we’ll get some more details during this year’s E3 expo.


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

Players will once again go on another grand adventure with Sora and his friends as he battles the evil heartless in Kingdom Hearts III. We’ve been waiting for the arrival of this third main installment to the Kingdom Hearts franchise for years and now we’ll soon be able to play it in early 2019.

As always, Sora will meet with a plethora of Disney themed worlds and characters all while battling enemies. However, it seems that the developers are looking to expand the open world capabilities for the game as players should be able to freely explore the various Disney worlds. Likewise, there are bound to be several new Disney locations that have yet to make it in a Kingdom Hearts video game installment such as Frozen.


The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening
  • Developer: Nintendo
  • Publisher: Nintendo
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: 2019

There is no shortage of video game installments to The Legend of Zelda franchise and as a surprise reveal during Nintendo’s February Direct upload in 2019 we got the reveal of a new remake from the series. For those who owned an original Game Boy, you may have enjoyed The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. Now you can prepare to enjoy that game all over again in a massive overhaul on the Nintendo Switch. This series is a well-known action-adventure title where players take on the role of Link and essentially saves the day from evil. With so many installments released, it’s not too surprising to see Nintendo look back at some of the classics that haven’t had its time in the spotlight in a number of years. As mentioned, this game is a perfect action-adventure that plays like the traditional old school Zelda titles. The game is done in a top-down perspective and given a more cartoonish style visuals. Throughout the game, players will be solving puzzles along with clearing dungeons and fighting bosses, much like how the series is known for. 


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

For quite some time now we’ve known that Respawn Entertainment, the developers responsible for Titanfall, was working on a Star Wars video game project. During E3 2018 we got a few small details regarding the upcoming game.

So far we know that this will be a single-player narrative adventure called Jedi: Fallen Order. Players will be taking on the role of a padawan that managed to escape after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. This will be a dark story as you are one of the last of remaining Jedi that are being hunted down.
