The 10 Best New Post-Apocalyptic Games Of 2020

#8 Dying Light 2

  • Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, XBO, XSX
  • Release: 2020

Techland is back to deliver fans of the Dying Light franchise a new installment in 2020. The video game will once again see players facing the undead threat but this time in a new city location. Most of these locations around the world are run by conflicting factions making it an on-going battle as to who is in control of the area. Just as before, this is an FPS with melee combat elements tossed in as well. You’ll find that your character can maneuver around buildings and objects easily with their parkour-style skills. However, one of the biggest changes to the game from the first installment is that developers are giving players a variety of choices.

These choices will result in players being able to alter the narrative campaign so you’ll want to carefully decide your actions as they may have heavy repercussions. We’ve been eager to dive back into the world of Dying Light and seeing how humanity has held up in this new apocalyptic world overruled by the undead. Unfortunately, news has been a bit scarce lately when it comes to Dying Light 2. While unveiled in 2018, the development team has only delayed the game out of early 2020 to allow the team more time to bring the game up to their standards.


#7 Scavengers

  • Platforms: PC
  • Release: 2020

Scavengers is a video game that takes a few aspects of popular online gameplay modes. This upcoming Midwinter Entertainment video game is an online competitive and cooperative release. Announced during The Game Awards 2018, this title will start out as a cooperative game where players must work together and complete objectives. After a plague has transformed animals and created some new creatures, it’s worth working with other players not only to fight off these creatures but to seek out resources to keep your character alive and healthy.

However, what makes this game a bit more chaotic is that it mixes in a battle royale game mode. Meaning that when these objectives are completed, the game flips into being the last man standing. It’s all about who you trust and how long you will be able to trust them in the game. While initially slated to release in 2019, the game has been pushed back and we’re hopeful to see it launch sometime before 2020 ends.
