More Upcoming Video Games of 2020

Watch Dogs Legion
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, Google Stadia
  • Release: March 6, 2020

Watch Dogs has been a popular franchise from Ubisoft and in 2020 we will get a third main installment. Watch Dogs Legion is the next chapter to this franchise and it will put players onto the streets of London. A new regime has taken authority of the United Kingdom and it’s DedSec’s goal to liberate the people from tyranny. However, with this next main installment, there is one big change in terms of gameplay. While the last two installments mainly focused on a single character for players to progress the story with, Watch Dogs Legion will focus on a variety of characters and a cast that will be revolving throughout the entire narrative. Best of all, you can decide who is part of that cast during the campaign.

As mentioned, Watch Dogs Legion is focused on a variety of characters. This third-person video game will put players into the role of a random character who can recruit other civilians to join DedSec. The best way to describe this feature is by the demo footage shown off from Ubisoft at E3 2019. The footage showcased a man who is running into a roadblock with drones and to progress, he will require the use of a drone hacker. From there it becomes a goal to track down a civilian with the particular useful drone hacking skill and recruit the person into DedSec.

Ubisoft has a ton of characters to recruit and they will come with a variety of attributes that may prove to be useful during your campaign. What may come to a surprise is that not all of these characters will make it through the entire journey. It seems that each character is susceptible to getting killed and once deceased that character becomes no longer a part of the game. Players are simply swapped to a different recruit and must push forward.

As for gameplay, this is still a third-person action-adventure title with plenty of stealth. Players can decide to go through a mission with brute strength, opt for a more traditional stealth approach or simply use some advanced gadgetry to accomplish the goals set in front of you.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sequel
  • Developer: Nintendo
  • Publisher: Nintendo
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: TBD

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was a big hit when it released originally on the Nintendo Wii U and it carried that success over to the Nintendo Switch console launch. This was another brand new installment to The Legend of Zelda franchise with a massive open world to explore, dungeons to complete and a cast of characters to meet. For some diehard Zelda fans, this became their number one pick for the best game in the series. It’s not only a beloved game for Zelda fans but an excellent open-world RPG. Now that some time has passed, it looks like we are going to get another look into that same world with the upcoming sequel.

Not that much is known really for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel. Instead, this was a surprise announcement during Nintendo’s E3 2019 Direct. We only got a small teaser announcement of Link and Zelda discovering a new enemy has awoken from the depths below. We don’t know if this means that the entire world has changed on the surface or if there are any additions to the map itself. Unfortunately, at the time of writing this, there are no details on when the sequel will release so it very well may not launch in 2020.

Twin Mirror
  • Developer: Dontnod Entertainment
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2020

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.

Psychonauts 2
  • Developer: Double Fine
  • Publisher: Xbox Game Studios
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2020

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.

Marvel’s Avengers
  • Developer: Crystal Dynamics, Eidos Montreal
  • Publisher: Square Enix
  • Platforms: Google Stadia, PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: May 15, 2020

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.
