Cuphead was a hit when it first released into the market. Gamers received a classic style retro game where players battle against a series of boss fights. However, during E3 2018, we received the unveiling of The Delicious Last Course, a new DLC that was slated to release sometime in 2019 but has since been pushed back to 2020.

So far we know that the DLC is coming packed with a new isle filled with new bosses, weapons among other goodies. Likewise, The Delicious Last Course will also introduce a brand new playable character known as Legendary Chalice. If you’re familiar with the main campaign then you’ll find that the title will that the DLC will carry over the same multiplayer experience.

The Halo franchise has been popular for years now and we’re going to get a brand new main installment release in 2020. Known as Halo Infinite, the game will put players back into the role of Master Chief after humanity has fallen leaving our spartan hero to turn the odds once again. We know that the game will take place on a Halo ring though further details have been scarce and it’s likely going to stay that way until E3 2020. At any rate, Halo has also featured plenty of multiplayer game modes both online and offline cooperative gameplay. While nothing has officially been unveiled, this game will likely hold the same style approach for multiplayer gameplay.

Furthermore, if you rather battle against other players then there are several game modes usually featured in Halo video game titles like team battles, capture the flag, to the popular infection game modes. Expect more details about Halo Infinite during E3 2020.

#2 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

It was one of the worse kept secrets that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare would receive a battle royale mode. While it took a bit of time, the video game mode finally did come out into the market and best of all it’s completely free-to-play. Overall, the game acts much like other battle royale game modes in that players can either join together in a three-person squad or head into the match filled with just solos. Dropped into a massive map, players will be venturing throughout the map in search of resources such as ammo, new weapons or other objective goals that you may have that week.

Ultimately, the goal is to come out as either the last man standing or with your group being the last remaining in the map. One element that may be a bit unique in that the game features an option to join back into the fight after you are killed. This can be done either by a player purchasing a revive for you at designated locations on the map where you’ll need to use funds gathered throughout your match. Likewise, depending on how many players are still in the game, you’ll enter a 1v1 match where the winner is once again redeployed back into the map. As for the gameplay mechanics, Warzone plays very much like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

#1 Rainbow Six Quarantine
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: PS4, PC, XBO
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: Online
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

Rainbow Six Quarantine is an upcoming installment to the Tom Clancy franchise that will play different compared to past installments. Players will be fighting off an unknown alien parasite that has turned humans into creatures. This is a cooperative gameplay experience, likely similar to the Rainbow Six Siege video game. While we only received a small teaser for the game so far, there is plenty of hype building for the title.

We’re sure there will be some significant differences to this game compared to Rainbow Six Siege, but there are likely some comparisons being made with the upcoming Quarantine and the already released Siege title. For instance, some comparisons are being made to Rainbow Six Siege’s timed Operation Chimera game mode which may give a good look towards the inspiration behind the upcoming Quarantine installment. Unfortunately, we’re waiting on more information to release for the game though we do expect a release within this upcoming year, 2020.

Dark Alliance

  • Developer: Tuque Games
  • Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

It’s been quite a few years since we got a Dark Alliance title. The game series got its big start in 2001 that was set in the world of Dungeons & Dragons. Overall, the game was a hack-and-slash title that focused on cooperative gameplay, though after the 2004 sequel installment released, the series had laid dormant. That was until The Game Awards 2019 where a new Dark Alliance title was unveiled through an announcement trailer. Now we didn’t get any details as to what we can expect with this new game installment, but with the title series being aimed around co-op, we imagine this new upcoming game will retain multiplayer-focused gameplay.
