Top 10 New Third-Person Games Of 2020

There is a growing list of great video game titles coming for 2020 every month. If you’re a fan of third-person perspective video games then we can offer a hand on some of the most anticipated releases this coming year. You’ll find everything from superhero titles to narrative-driven adventure games. Make sure to bookmark this page as well because we’re going to update this page over time with new and exciting video game titles as they are announced. Without further ado, here are the best upcoming third-person video games releasing in 2020 so far!


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

Psychonauts released in 2005 and it had a cult following since, but years went by and no main sequel was ever released. That will hopefully change in 2020 where developers Double Fine are currently crafting up Psychonauts 2. This title will take place after the VR adventure title, Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, a game that bridges the events from the first Psychonauts video game to the upcoming sequel. This is still a third-person puzzle adventure game with players taking on the role of Raz. So far, we know that this game follows Raz after he saves head Psychonaut Truman Zanotto.

Upon returning to headquarters, it’s revealed that the peacekeeping order is no longer the central focus of the organization but have veered away towards other psychic research such as necromancy. Players will once again control Raz in this third-person platform title and use your various Psi-Powers such as telekinesis to solve puzzles or defeat enemies.

#9 Marvel’s Avengers
  • Developer: Crystal Dynamics, Eidos Montreal
  • Publisher: Square Enix
  • Platforms: Google Stadia, PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: May 15, 2020
  • Co-op: Online
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

We knew that Crystal Dynamics was working on something Avengers related for a couple of years now and during E3 2019 we finally got the first reveal of Marvel’s Avengers, a new storyline that follows Earth mightiest heroes in their journey of protecting innocent civilians from those that would do them harm. This third-person action title will put players into a variety of heroes in the game, but only a few characters have been unveiled to show up in the narrative so far. With that said, you’ll still see the staple characters such as Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor.

We know that the story revolves around A-Day which was a celebratory event where the Avengers unveiled their new headquarters in San Francisco. Unfortunately, during this event a catastrophic accident caused the city to be destroyed and with it came the outlawing of all superheroes. Because of the new law, the Avengers disbanded but now a few years later, Earth is under a new peril leaving the group to put aside differences and join back together to save humanity from impending doom.

#8 Tales of Arise

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

After its last release of Tales Berseria first hit the market back in 2016, a new installment to the Tales game is coming next year. Bandai Namco Entertainment is working on the next action RPG Tales of Arise at the moment for current-generation platforms. If you’re familiar with the Tales games, there are several installments available but they are not always connected, for instance, the previous installment could be enjoyed without having played any of the previous installments which will be the case for this upcoming title. 

Tales of Arise doesn’t have a ton of information out right now, but we do know that the story will follow two characters from two completely different worlds, Dahna and Rena. One of the worlds has been fortunate enough to be built up with advanced technology while the other lives in a time that feels similar to the medieval era. As a result, the advanced world of Rena is able to take control of Dahna and force those that inhabit the world into slavery. 

#7 The Dark Pictures Anthology

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

From Supermassive Games comes The Dark Pictures Anthology, a collection of video game titles releasing all of which are said to be horror based. So far only one title has released into the market which is Man of Medan though more titles are said to be coming out in 2020.

Overall, the games will play similarly as an interactive drama much like Until Dawn. Each will also feature a unique story premise, but again, we don’t have any details of what really is coming down the line. If you enjoyed Man of Medan and Until Dawn then you’ll want to keep tabs on Supermassive Games as they’ll be tossing a couple more into the market before 2020 wraps. 

#6 Gods & Monsters

  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, NS
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

Ubisoft made a quick reveal of their newest IP Gods & Monsters during E3 2019. Not a ton of information was unveiled though we do know that the game will follow a Greek mythology journey. Players will be taking on the role of a young boy who is given the powers to defeat Typhon, a monster that has taken out the gods. This is also a game being developed by the same team who worked on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. While we’re still waiting to hear and see some footage for the gameplay of Gods & Monsters, it’s easy to see where the visual inspiration came from. Visually, Gods & Monsters can easily be compared to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Likewise, we may see a large open world to explore with hostile enemies, puzzles, and bosses to face as well.
