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!


#15 Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, XSX, PS5
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

There has been a year gap from Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and the upcoming release of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The video game franchise was put on ice in 2019 for Ubisoft and they are bringing out a new installment within this year which has been confirmed to be set during the Viking age. The video game will be taking place in England with the Viking expansion, though the information is still pretty scarce. After having a massive world to explore in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, we imagine a similar size map will be presented with Valhalla.

While Ubisoft has yet to unveil the size of this world we’ll be diving into, we do know that there are four kingdoms apparently to explore and interact with. It’s also been stated that there is the ability to travel back to your home in Norway as well. We’re likely to see plenty of unique areas, characters, and events take place. Furthermore, this is still going to be a third-person video game title with players will have the main campaign, side quests and likely the ability to go through the game either stealthy or make your character more of a force to reckon with.

#14 Godfall

  • Developer: Counterplay Games
  • Publisher: Gearbox Publishing
  • Platforms: PS5, PC
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: Online
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

Godfall is one of the upcoming slated for the next-generation platform. PlayStation 5 is underway and we can label Godfall as an exclusive in terms of a console platform release. In this game, players will be following one of the last Knights Order who was established for the sole purpose of removing any threats that could lead to an apocalypse. While we’re waiting for more information to come out for this game, it does appear to be a looter-slasher where you’ll endure several quests in hopes of gathering new gear or components to further tweak your character. With this game slated to launch at the late end of this year, we could potentially see a delay in 2021.

#13 Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2

  • Developer: Ninja Theory
  • Publisher: Microsoft
  • Platforms: XBO, PC, XSX
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice released back in 2017 and it was an instant hit. Players followed a young woman named Senua who was on a quest to meet the goddess Hela. With desperate hopes that Hela could bring back the life of her dead lover, the journey is not only tough but at times twisted due to the character’s struggle with psychosis. Since that initial journey, it looks like another quest is underway for Senua.

Announced through The Game Awards 2019, Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 confirms that a new installment is underway. This third-person action-adventure game is coming out for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC platforms. We don’t know just yet on what the game narrative will be based around, but the trailer seems to indicate that a war of some sort is underway.

#12 Twin Mirror
  • Developer: Dontnod Entertainment
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

Dontnod Entertainment has been around for a good while now and they’ve delivered a big hit this generation of platforms. With the launch of Life is Strange, gamers around the world easily took on the challenge of being Max Caulfield, a young photography major who ends up with a supernatural ability that allows her to rewind time. The developers are currently working on the last section of Life is Strange’s sequel but afterward, their next main focus project will be the launching of Twin Mirror. Much like the Life is Strange video games, this is an adventure title with an episodic style release. Players will step into the role of a young man named Samuel who ends up going back to his hometown to attend the funeral of his best friend.

It’s within this town that something goes awry. Samuel wakes up one morning in a hotel room with a bloody shirt. The problem is that he has no memory of the events that happened the night before. Players will be going through this emotional journey in hopes of finding the sanity of Sam once again. Just like the Life is Strange franchise, Twin Mirror will present players with a variety of choices and depending on your actions will determine the fate of Sam and his relationships he’s made at the town of Basswood, West Virginia.

#11 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.
