We’re certainly keeping tabs on our most anticipated video game titles of 2019 and we’re here to give you a quick look at some of the best and expected games to launch before 2020.

Without further ado, here are our picks for the best 30 video game titles that will blow you away in 2019.


#30 Mortal Kombat 11
  • Developer: NetherRealm Studios
  • Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, NS
  • Release: April 23, 2019

Mortal Kombat is a staple to the fighting genre with so many titles flooding the market across generations of platforms. In a surprise reveal at The Game Awards 2018 we got our first announcement that developers over at NetherRealm Studios are working on the eleventh main installment to the Mortal Kombat franchise. We don’t know very much at all regarding this game other than what was shown off during the first reveal trailer.

Within the trailer we saw Scorpion and Raiden battling and it looks like there will be some time element at play when a female character was shown next to a reverse flowing hourglass. For those who pre-order the game, you will receive access to Shao Kahn as a bonus character but we imagine that the developers have character packs readily available throughout the game’s launch serving as additional past Mortal Kombat characters to other franchise crossovers much like their previous release, Mortal Kombat X.


#29 The Surge 2
  • Developer: Deck13 Interactive
  • Publisher: Focus Home Interactive
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2019

In 2017, Deck13 Interactive developed The Surge, a science fiction action RPG which follows a story of humanity, the evolution of technology and the downfall of world resources. For the most part, the game received positive reviews leaving the developer to once again pick up the world and seek out a new installment.

The Surge 2 is slated to release in 2019 where players are set into a broken down city and as a result, level design will be far larger than the areas gamers could roam within the title’s predecessor. Likewise, it seems that combat will also see a more brutal polish this time around, but we’re currently waiting to hear more information on this upcoming title.


#28 Man of Medan
  • Developer: Supermassive Games
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2019

Supermassive Games has already a nice track record when it comes to horror titles as the development studio brought out an iconic hit for the PlayStation 4 in the form of Until Dawn. The video game series has received a couple spinoff titles of its own though now the developers are looking at a new trilogy of titles set to also be horror titles.

The developers are calling it The Dark Anthology with the first title being Man of Medan. So far we know that the game will feature a cast of characters that, much like Until Dawn, can all be killed. This time around players will be diving into the sea with a group of friends in search of sunken treasure but it turns out that there’s something else lurking in the depths below.

We’re keeping tabs on this game for any news related to the title though so far we only have one trailer and a release window of sometime in 2019.


#27 Skull & Bones

  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2019

In Skull & Bones, players will be clawing their way to the top as they command a pirate crew. Overall, the goal of the game is to sail the seas and find easy targets to steal loot, however, as you progress the targets become stronger. Rewards will soon become bountiful thus causing players to make bigger risks all while seeking out help from fellow pirate crews.

Ubisoft looks to be using the same mechanics that were present in their Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag video game. Players will be maneuvering their ship through the seas while commanding their crew to send out a barrage of shots at the enemy. Likewise, it seems that gamers can also tweak their ships before setting sail at the local harbors to ensure their vessel is ready for a fight or a quick getaway.


#26 Luigi’s Mansion 3
  • Developer: Nintendo
  • Publisher: Nintendo
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: 2019

The Luigi’s Mansion series doesn’t have very many installments attached. Outside of its main debut on the Nintendo GameCube, the series only has one other console installment for the Nintendo 3DS called Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. With the franchise, players are put into the role of Luigi who must bust a variety of ghosts and while we knew that the original installment was soon finding a release again in the market for the Nintendo 3DS, it came as a surprise that a third installment was in the works.

During a September 2018 Nintendo Direct, Nintendo revealed that Luigi’s Mansion 3 is being developed for the Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, we didn’t get any details as to what this third installment will entail quite yet, but it’s supposedly coming into the market in 2019.

We’re likely going to see some type of Joy-Con motion controller gameplay featured within the game but again, at this point, we’re simply speculating as to what we can expect from the upcoming installment.
