If you’re anything like us, a new year doesn’t just mean new starts, resolutions and the denial of pleasure. It heralds the release of new games which are almost guaranteed to be better than anything that has come before.
The technology and imagination of the gaming world creators moves at such a pace that we can’t wait to see what the newest releases will include. Graphics that are scarily realistic, quests that blow your mind with their creativity and characters which you can identify with.
You’ll be glued to your screen for hours on end, gripped by the intensity so before you start, make sure your eyes are protected with a good monitor! Flicker reduction and backlight optimisation are just two things that can help. Browse our monitors to get the best one for you. And don’t forget your wrists – hours spent warring with your enemies can cause injury so make sure they are supported properly with the right keyboard and mouse.
There will be so many amazing games released this year – some probably not even announced yet – but we’ve done a round up of what we think are the top games coming out in 2020:
The wait is over – a new Half-Life is coming. It’s the prequel to the sequel, set between Half-Life and Half-Life 2 and will take you into virtual reality. As Alyx Vance, you’ll have the small responsibility of the securing the fate of humanity against an alien race who are determined to obliterate it. Valve software states the game will involve "puzzle solving, deep environmental interactions, and visceral combat". Exciting.
Resident Evil 3 Remake
We all love a good remake and this one is set to be one of the best. After 21 years, Jill Valentine is back to escape not just a zombie apocalypse but also Nemesis, an intelligent bioweapon. The third-person shooter approach follows the format of the more recent releases and there’s also an online multiplayer mode so a team of 4 can battle an evil mastermind.
If you’ve ever wanted to be a superhero then it is finally your time! It’s a slight deviation from the film series but you can play the key characters of Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk and Black Widow. The voices aren’t the same but they have sourced stellar actors ensuring no detriment at all and it’s made by Crystal Dynamics who are the geniuses behind the Tomb Raider franchise so it shouldn’t disappoint! The Avengers assemble after a 5-year break to save the world from a crippling threat and the 4-player option means you can unite in a heroic adventure as a team.
