2018 was a stellar year for the video game industry, with huge releases such as God of War, Spider-man, Tetris Effect and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, to fantastic Indie titles like Celeste and Dead Cells. Last year was one to remember for great gaming moments and experiences. That doesn’t mean that it’s over, 2019 appears to be ramping up to be on par or even better compared to last year. We’ve compiled a list of our top games coming soon-in no particular order- that our staff are most excited for and we think that you should keep an eye on over the next couple months.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
Created by renowned developer From Software, creators of Dark Souls, Demon Souls and Bloodborne. Sekiro is an action-adventure title taking place in a fictional 16th century feudal Japan. You play as a disgraced warrior who lost his arm presumably in battle and must press forward to rescue a young lord you are bound to protect. Scraping away the role-playing elements from their previous titles, Sekiro aims to be more action oriented, centralizing combat on the timing and skill of the player to create an opening and deliver the killing blow.
Release Date: March 22nd, 2019. Platforms: XB1, PS4, PC.
Mortal Kombat 11
Netherrealm studios is back at it again to bring us the most gore filled, over the top and fighting game to date. Taking place after the events of the previous title, Mortal Kombat 11 looks to be ramping everything up a notch and deliver an awe factor we’ve all grown to know and love from the series. Raiden has gone to far and has caused a fatal mistake, in trying to protect earth realm for the last time. Kronika a keeper of time has taken the task of repairing Raidens mistake by using Kombatants from throughout time and parallel universes.
