We are at the start of a new year, and 2019 holds unlimited promises in store. For gamers, 2018 was a huge year, with big titles and excellent gameplay stories arriving across platforms. Blame my cheerful optimism, but from where I stand, 2019 looks like it will introduce several great new games. Without much ado, we introduce five most anticipated games of 2019.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is the upcoming game from Pokemon Go developers, Niantic. It'll release for mobile gamers and will be an augmented reality game, where gamers have to look at their screen while moving around in the real world, to discover magical artifacts and creatures. As we reported, the magical and real worlds will overlap, and gamers have to prevent the subsequent catastrophe.
Mortal Kombat 11 is the latest addition to the popular franchise from NetherRealm Studios. It releases on April 23 for PS4, PC, Xbox, and Switch. While Mortal Kombat brings back favorite fighters like Scorpion and Sub-Zero, the combat mechanics seem to have improved further. Nonetheless, the over the top action and violence is familiar to fans of the franchise, and makes the game anticipated.
Devil May Cry 5 by Capcom is coming on March 8 for PS4, PC and Xbox. It is the latest addition in the DMC franchise and from what we see, the game is going to be introducing some new characters and brand new weapons. What we are most excited about are the 'breakers' as well as the quick action combinations in-game, as per trailers.
The Division 2 is arriving on March 15 for PS4, Xbox and PC. The post-apocalyptic world will now move from New York to Washington DC, as players represent government operatives struggling to maintain peace in post-apocalyptic civil war situations. The realistic map along with accurate shooting and action mechanisms have us eagerly awaiting the release of the sequel to the popular game.
Skull and Bones does not have an official release date yet but will be available for PS4, PC and Xbox. It is an upcoming Ubisoft title and gamers, who enjoyed the naval warfare in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, are in for a treat. The shared world historical pirate adventure has promised a realistic atmosphere and gameplay. We have high hopes from this title.
