Top games of 2019

Next year will be here in a month and a half. There are so many games and so little time that you have to make a list of interesting things ahead of time: let’s see what powerful exclusives and good games promises the year 2019.

Metro: Exodus
Release date: February 22, 2019
Developer: 4A Games
Platforms: PC / PS4 / XBO

The third part of the series of this post-apocalyptic shooter Metro was supposed to be released in 2018, but 4A Games decided to move it to February 2019. Reasons being: the developers took the time to bring the game to an acceptable form.

And well, because Exodus will not be the same linear corridor shooter, as we know the series. A half-open world will replace it and players will have to travel on the surface more often than through tunnels: Artyom and the team leave Moscow and take a cruise on an armored train throughout post-nuclear Russia.

In addition, Metro: Exodus will support the latest technology “raytracing” from Nvidia, but only those who have an extra hundred thousand rubles for 2080 Ti will be able to check out the new picture.

It cannot be excluded that the game was moved precisely because of the need to fasten a new render.

Days gone
Release date: April 26, 2019
Developer: SIE Bend Studio
Platforms: PS4

This exclusive for the PlayStation 4 caused a lot of hype after the first presentation at E3. Then the game looked like The Last of Us on steroids.

Judge for yourself: the zombie apocalypse, the main character is the “one-percent” biker, that is, not just a lover of motorcycles and long highways, but a real criminal, a murderer and a degenerate. In addition, he has no deterrent factors like the little girl Joel had to hang around with. It looks good – fire! Meat, swears, naked boobs, as a contemporary said.

Whether SIE Bend Studio has brought an unsuccessful build or the authors of Siphon Filter have not made good games since the first PlayStation… It’s better to see our preview, okay?

Release date: June 2019
Developer: id Software + Avalanche Studios
Platforms: PC / PS4 / XBO

It is not clear – these are the words that best describe you what RAGE 2 is.

Oh, wait! We’ll have to linger, I remembered something here.

Forget the first part of RAGE – id Software wasn’t in their best shape. They tried to build an open world, even though before they only did shooters. Avalanche Studios – the authors of Mad Max and Just Cause – helps id Software to work on RAGE 2. These guys are able to make noble open world sandboxes!

Now let’s solve a simple equation: the authors of the brilliant shooter DOOM + the authors of the brilliant sandbox Just Cause = good game? Alas, theory and practice are two different things. Let’s test the hypothesis next year.

Devil May Cry 5
Release date: March 8, 2019
Developer: Capcom
Platforms: PC / PS4 / XBO

DmC – restarting Devil May Cry – the players accepted reluctantly and with much difficulty. Capcom listened to its audience and chose to forget about restarting. Therefore, the fifth part will be the slasher about your favorite characters – Dante and Nero.

This is the same game as before. However, it was possible to play for only half an hour and on low complexity, where everything was passed by thoughtless “action”, but the combat system is recognized immediately: different types of attacks are perfectly combined with each other in almost any sequence, there are many special moves and other things for those who like to memorize furious combos.

True, there is one “but”: microtransactions will appear in the game. That is, it will be possible to buy powerups for real money. The main thing is that the balance of the game does not force you to either pay or suffer.
