Top 20 New PlayStation 4 Games Of 2020

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 Nioh 2

  • Developer: Team Ninja
  • Publisher: Koei Tecmo
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: TBA
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

It was Sony’s E3 2018 press conference that we got the unveiling of Nioh 2. During the conference, a small trailer showcased the video game which we can expect the over-the-top action RPG elements that were present during the first installment. Now a sequel is inbound though we’re waiting for more information to be revealed in terms of what the game premise will be and if there are any significant changes to the gameplay. So far we do know that there will be an option to customize your character a bit visually and that could carry over to some of the gameplay mechanics.

#19 WiLD

  • Developer: Wild Sheep Studio
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: TBA
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

We don’t blame you if you forgot about WiLD. It’s a game that was first announced back in 2014 during Gamescom as a PlayStation 4 exclusive. However, the development studio has been in limbo when it comes to the game. Stuck in development hell, it’s uncertain if this game would ever release into the market. However, a new trademark was filed by Sony in 2019 so this game is not cancelled and we could finally see it launch in 2020.

Within WiLD, players take on the role of a human during the Neolithic period. You have the power to control any animal which will help aid you during your battles against other humans and tribes set in the world. There haven’t been any updates on this game for a good while so the development team may have added some new elements to the title. For instance, we know that there would be some multiplayer element into the game but we’re waiting to see just how it will play out along with some updated footage.

#18 Tales of Arise

  • Developer: Bandai Namco Studios
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

The long-running Tales series is going to receive another installment in 2020. Tales of Arise is currently being developed in hopes of revitalizing the series which may help appeal more towards a Western audience. This will still be an action RPG title if you’re familiar with the game and as a result, you’ll find that the Linear Motion Battle System will be intact.

In the narrative, we know that the game will focus on two worlds, Dahna and Rena. Rena is an advanced world that is filled with magic and technology while Dahna has been repressed into a medieval state. As a result, Rena has been using those that inhabit Dahna as slaves. So far we know that the protagonists are going to be a man named Alphen who is from Dahna and a woman named Shionne from Rena. Both find themselves traveling together in a new dark adventure.

#17 Predator: Hunting Grounds
  • Developer: IllFonic
  • Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: Online
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Yes

Who isn’t a fan of the Predator franchise? This movie series has had a following for decades and in 2020 we’re going to get a new video game installment based on the IP. IllFonic is bringing out Predator: Hunting Ground, an online multiplayer asymmetric shooter experience. What we know so far about the game is that there will be a group of special ops that must complete a series of objectives all while one player takes on the role of the predator. It’s the predator’s job to track down the players within the dense and lush map.

We don’t know how easy it will be for the group to lay down traps and prevent their entire team from being wiped out from the Predator, but we imagine there will be a few elements to make use of especially looking back at their previous survival horror release, Friday the 13th: The Game. Currently, there doesn’t appear to be any word on when this game will launch in 2020 but it’s currently a PlayStation 4 exclusive.

#16 Psychonauts 2
  • Developer: Double Fine
  • Publisher: Xbox Game Studios
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

Psychonauts launched all the way back in 2005 and in 2020 we should finally get the sequel. Double Fine is bringing out Psychonauts 2 will follow the events after the video game release, Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, where Raz and his gang had rescued the head Psychonaut Truman Zanotto. We know that the game will follow a story in which Raz discovers that the Psychonauts organization has been moving away from their original values and instead is working on more unorthodox research. The director behind the game, Tim Schafer, also revealed that more background information on Raz along with the curse will be fleshed out in this upcoming sequel.

As for the gameplay mechanics, this is still a platformer played in a third-person view. Controlling, Raz, players will have a variety of psychic abilities to aid them in their quest such as telekinesis to levitation. So far at the time of writing this, the game doesn’t have a specific release date attached quite yet though the developers are hoping to get Psychonauts 2 out into the market sometime in 2020.
