  • Developer: Techland

Dying Light will receive its sequel shortly known simply as Dying Light 2. The video game will retain the same survival horror action gameplay but with a few slight changes. Players will have an assortment of choices to make and each will have a consequence with the story and the in-game world. Traversing the world is also still very much centered around parkour with zombies and factions being hostile obstacles to deal with.

There will be four-player cooperative gameplay but because this game heavily relies on choices, the host will seemingly be in control on the narrative progression. From what the development team has alerted fans so far about the game is that any of your friends can hop into the action. Those that join in will bring over their weapons and upgrades, but the progression of the actual campaign and choices will be determined by the host.

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.

#1 Rainbow Six Quarantine
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft

  • 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.
