Contra: Rogue Corps
  • Developer: Toylogic
  • Publisher: Konami Digital Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, NS, PS4, XBO
  • Release: September 24, 2019

Konami may not have the most pleasant response within the video game community after their fallout with the legendary developer, Hideo Kojima. However, now that some time has passed, we’re going to get a new installment from one of their staple franchises, Contra. This run-and-gun video game series got its start back in 1987 and over the years its received quite a few installments. However, in 2011, the video game series came to a halt but now in 2019, not only did we receive an Anniversary Collection with a few notable video game titles from its catalog but the announcement of Contra: Rogue Corps.

Contra: Rogue Corps will follow the events after Contra III: The Alien Wars. Set within the Damned City, players will take on the role of a bounty hunter and embark on another action-packed adventure. We’re going to assume this game will follow the same mechanics as the series is known for so don’t expect an easy title to breeze through. Contra has been known to offer difficult gameplay with chaotic action sequences.


Borderlands 3
  • Developer: Gearbox Software
  • Publisher: 2K Games
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: September 13, 2019

It’s been years since we got a main installment but it looks like Borderlands 3 is coming out later this year. We’ve only received one trailer so far but within it, we know that there will be new vault hunters, modes, and just like before, we’ll also get cooperative gameplay. News is still a bit scarce from developers Gearbox Software but we imagine that this title will get a proper spotlight during this year’s big E3 expo.

However, from the trailer, we have seen it appears it will still be the over-the-top looter shooter with a heavy science fiction background. This is a big franchise and one that we along with fans all around the world have been waiting for the development team to bring back out again.


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.


Star Wars 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.

Star Wars has always been a science fiction franchise favorite. From the obvious source material with the cinematic films, television series, novels, and video game titles, we have no doubt that this title will have plenty of early adopters.
