The PlayStation 4 has a strong life cycle so far since its release and while we are getting close to the launch of next-generation consoles, we still have plenty of new titles to look forward in playing on the PS4 in 2020. We’re going to showcase some of our most anticipated video games releasing on the PlayStation 4 this coming year down below. However, with that said, you definitely want to keep this page bookmarked as we’ll continue to monitor this article and make new updates when additional video game titles are announced.
#20 The Outer Worlds – Peril of Gorgon
- Developer: Obsidian Entertainment
- Publisher: Private Divison
- Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, NS
- Release: September 9, 2020 (DLC)
- Co-op: N/A
- Competitive Multiplayer: N/A
Easily one of the best RPG titles that came out last year was Obsidian Entertainment’s The Outer Worlds. This game allowed the developers to tap back into their time of crafting up Fallout New Vegas as the two games had a very similar feel. Regardless, The Outer Worlds is a space drama that puts players in the center of either siding with the government ruling or joining a resistance lead by a scientist that’s deemed mad. Chances are you’ve already played through this game and have moved on, but we’re here to tell you that we’re far from done with The Outer Worlds.
This September we are getting the first of two storyline expansions for The Outer Worlds. The first expansion is called Peril of Gorgon. Players will once again rejoin their crew and head to a new quest that will take them to seemingly abandoned post on the Gorgon asteroid. From there it’s a mystery of what has been going on at this asteroid which you’ll need to solve, but just like the base game, every decision will have some sort of consequence. Players will find that this DLC will bring in a brand new assortment of weapons, NPCs, perks, along with new locations to explore. With that said, there is also going to be some instances that will have players revisiting some familiar locations as well. Apparently, this DLC will take players about eight hours to complete which is a pretty lengthy expansion and as stated earlier, this is just one of two storyline expansions planned.
#19 Call of Duty: Warzone
- Developer: Infinity Ward, Raven Software
- Publisher: Activision
- Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
- Release: March 10, 2020
- Co-op: Online
- Competitive Multiplayer: Online
When it comes to the Call of Duty franchise, there is no slowing the series down. We receive installments consistently and from a variety of series. The most recent installment to have released is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which is a reboot to the Modern Warfare series that released last-generation of consoles. One thing is for sure, there are a ton of players that actively go out and pick up new installments in order to enjoy online gameplay against others. In fact, that was the sole reason Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 launched without a campaign attached.
At any rate, there may be some gamers out there that are not fond of jumping to a new installment each time in order to find an active online community. As a result, Call of Duty: Warzone may prove to be not only a viable option for those that enjoy online Call of Duty gameplay, but an installment that will be around for a good while. After being rumored and leaked, Call of Duty: Warzone finally made its way out into the market in March of 2020.
This is a free-to-play game mode for players to jump online and play much like other battle royale games available today. By teaming up in squads or going out in a solo match, players are ultimately dropped into a large map and from there must venture out to find resources such as weapons. From there, it’s a battle to be the last man standing as the map size slowly shrinks over time.
#17 Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
- Developer: Treyarch, Raven Software
- Publisher: Activision
- Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, XBO, XSX
- Release: November 13, 2020
- Co-op: Online
- Competitive: Online
We knew that 2020 would see the return of Call of Duty, an annual video game franchise. While it took towards the second half of 2020 for the game to be fully unveiled, we now know that Call of Duty 2020 is Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. This is a new installment to the Black Ops franchise and one that’s supposed to act as a sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops. In this game, players are tossed into the 1980s during the Cold War. Players take the role of CIA officer Russell Adler who is on a case to stop a believed soviet spy by the name of Perseus and being that this is a sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops, players will see some familiar faces return such as Frank Woods.
Just as with any Call of Duty game, there is a big focus around multiplayer. Outside of the campaign, there will be a variety of multiplayer game modes, customization options, and new dynamic maps. There’s also going to be a wide variety of vehicles to take control of when traversing through the different multiplayer maps whether it’s tanks to jet skies. We imagine there will be a ton of attention on this game when it launches this November. Likewise, we know that the free-to-play battle royale game, Call of Duty: Warzone is supposed to evolve with each new Call of Duty installment released. As a result, we imagine that there will be some incentive in checking out the companion game as well.
#18 Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time
- Developer: Toys for Bob
- Publisher: Activision
- Platforms: PS4, XBO
- Release: October 2, 2020
- Co-op: TBA
- Competitive Multiplayer: TBA
Crash Bandicoot is back with Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. We’ve seen several past Crash Bandicoot titles release into the market after Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, but this installment will take place following the events of the third mainline installment. In this game, a few years have passed since Uka Uka, Dr. Cortex, and N. Tropy was sent to the end of time and space. However, it appears that the three have found a way to escape their imprisonment and by doing so they left an exit for the rest of the nefarious villains to also flood out into the world again. As a result, Crash Bandicoot and Coco will have to once again restore order.
This installment looks like it will feel and act very much the same as the original trilogy that Naughty Dog developed, however, the studio rebuilt the mechanics from the ground up. As a result, you can expect the platformer to perform as expected on modern platforms. In this title, players will also find that there will be larger levels and bigger boss fights. Furthermore, it seems that we may get tossed into the role of other characters as well such as Dr. Neo Cortext and that could give a better insight behind some of his actions or views.
#16 Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
- Developer: Ubisoft
- Publisher: Ubisoft
- Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, PS5, XSX
- Release: 2020
- Co-op: TBD
- Competitive Multiplayer: TBD
Fans of the Assassin’s Creed franchise had been waiting for over a year to see what the next mainline installment would be after the 2018 Assassin’s Creed Odyssey release. It was the beginning of May that we got the reveal of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the next epic installment to the long running franchise. As the name suggests, this game will be putting players into a new tale set in the Viking age where players take the role of a Viking leader during an expansion. While we’re still waiting for more information to come out, it does look like there will be plenty of exploration, much like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. With a few kingdoms spread across the land and the ability to build up your own settlement, this could be quite an immersive world to take in. There’s even word of a season pass that will grant players some Beowulf levels, though we’ll have to wait a bit longer to see just what all this game entails.
