1) Anthem

Developer: BioWare 
Publisher: EA
Release date: 22nd February 2019

The veteran developer behind the likes of Dragon Age and Mass Effect returns with something a little bit different - a huge shared-world shooter that straps you into a fearsome exosuit known as a Javelin, teams you up with friends, and fires you off in search of adventure in a wild science-fantasy world.


2) Days Gone

Developer: Sony Bend Studio
Publisher: SIE
Release date: 26th April 2019

Step into the boots of outlaw biker Deacon St. John as he ekes out survival in a post-pandemic landscape ravaged by degenerate humans known as Freakers. Scavenge for resources, hunt for survivors and see off relentless enemy hordes in this gritty open world adventure from the team behind Uncharted: Golden Abyss.  


3) Resident Evil 2

Developer: Capcom 
Publisher: Capcom 
Release date: 25th January 2019 

Survive Raccoon City as rookie cop Leon Kennedy or Claire Redfield once more in this scarily realistic remake of the 1998 classic. Capcom has rebuilt the game to ensure the shocks are still unexpected, even for those familiar with the original, while retaining its terrifying spirit. The undead are many, ammo is scarce. Good luck.  


4) Devil May Cry 5

Developer: Capcom
Publisher: Capcom
Release date: 8th March 2019 

Capcom’s stylish, combat-heavy adventure series is reinvigorated thanks to the graphical heft of the RE Engine and three playable heroes, each with their own distinct playstyle. Franchise icon Dante juggles outlandish weapons, Nero’s robotic arm has multiple abilities, and newcomer V uses a trio of familiars to battle enemies for him. 


5) Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Developer: FromSoftware
Publisher: Activision
Release date: 22nd March 2019 

The keenly anticipated action adventure from the fiendish minds behind Dark Souls and Bloodborne is nearly upon us. This time around you play as a disgraced warrior in 14th-century Japan, brought back from the brink of death to rescue their master. Expect deep combat, gruesome enemy design and a sprawling interconnected world to explore.


6) Tom Clancy’s The Division 2

Developer: Massive Entertainment 
Publisher: Ubisoft 
Release date: 15th March 2019  

Bring back order to an embattled American capital as Massive Entertainment’s enthralling online shooter relocates to Washington D.C. Building on what made the original great - tense story-driven missions, epic raids and bombastic action - the studio promises a content-rich world to stay lost in. 


7) Kingdom Hearts III

Developer: Square-Enix 
Publisher: Square-Enix 
Release date: 29th January 2019 

Disney’s biggest icons and Square-Enix's heroes assemble for a dimension-hopping action RPG like no other. Explore (and fight) your way across an array of worlds which lovingly recreate your favourite Disney flicks, such as Frozen, Toy Story and Pirates of the Caribbean, and team-up with familiar faces like Woody, Hercules, Baymax and more. 


8) Metro Exodus

Developer: 4A Games
Publisher: Deep Silver 
Release date: 15th February 2019  

Four seasons, 12 months and one epic journey await, as you attempt escaping a near-future Russia ravaged by nuclear war. Scavenging is essential, while stealth is arguably the better choice to make it past mutated creatures and trigger-happy humans that outnumber your ammo supply. 


9) Ghost of Tsushima

Developer: Sucker Punch Productions
Publisher: SIE
Release date: TBC

The team behind inFAMOUS are back with a majestic new action adventure set in feudal Japan. Don your armour, sharpen your katana and ready your longbow as you assume the role of Jin, a determined samurai who is the island of Tsushima’s only hope against a ruthless warlord.


10) The Last of Us Part II

Developer: Naughty Dog
Publisher: SIE
Release date: TBC  

Is there a more rabidly-anticipated video game in development than the follow-up to Naughty Dog’s phenomenal 2013 action epic? Set five years after the events of the original, this sequel sees Ellie and Joel return for another harrowing adventure in a brutal, broken world. 


11) Death Stranding

Developer: Kojima Productions
Publisher: SIE 
Release date: TBC 

Step into the shoes of Sam Bridges as he explores a mysterious new world created by legendary game creator Hideo Kojima. Starring Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Lindsay Wagner, Léa Seydoux and Guillermo del Toro, Death Stranding is sure to deliver an unforgettable experience.


12) Far Cry: New Dawn

Developer: Ubisoft
Publisher: Ubisoft
Release date: 15th February 2019  

Just when you were starting to miss the demented denizens of Hope County, Montana, Ubisoft is all set to whisk gamers back to its open world playground. However, this time around you’ll be hooning around a post-apocalyptic vision of Far Cry 5’s setting, going toe-to-toe with a fierce gang of scavengers dubbed the Highwaymen. 


13) Cyberpunk 2077

Developer: CD Projekt RED
Publisher: CD Projekt 
Release date: TBC  

The studio behind The Witcher 3 brings its open world prowess to a futuristic, corporation-controlled Californian megacity. You’ll play a mercenary earning their trade, whose abilities, story choices and more will be entirely dictated by you. Given the studio’s pedigree, expect a masterclass in immersive world-building. 


14) Doom Eternal

Developer: id Software
Publisher: Bethesda Softworks 
Release date: TBC  

Rip and tear through the horrifying hordes of Hell, or invade another player’s game as a demon in this super-slick sequel to the critically-acclaimed 2016 original. Aggression and quick reflexes are still key tactics, while arm-blades and grappling hooks are new headliners in the expanded weapon roster. Brutal and brilliant in equal measure.
