The Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order game tells the story of one of the last members of the Jedi Order named Cal Kestis, who survived Order 66. The game takes place shortly after the events of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.

You have to hide from the Empire, whose formidable inquisitors prey on you. Develop the abilities of the Force, improve the skill of owning a lightsaber, and unravel the ancient secrets of a long-gone civilization to increase your knowledge of the Force. But remember: the Empire will relentlessly follow you.

The action starts on the Bracca planet, where the Empire dismantles decommissioned ships of the Fallen Order. Cal learned the ways of the Jedi during the Clone Wars and has been a garbage man for several years.

At the time of the execution of Order 66, he was already carrying out missions for the Order, but so far he was not given full tasks. The story of Cal’s origin will be told throughout the game - both through commercials and through the environment.

When Cal’s identity is revealed, he will have to hide, and his path will intersect with the former Jedi Knight, who relies on the opportunity to revive the Order.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be released November 15th, 2019, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Cyberpunk 2077

Many experts say that Cyberpunk 2077 can become the best game of the year. There is no exact release date for Cyberpunk, but there is a chance that the game will be released in 2019. The desktop RPG immediately captured the interest of cyberpunk aesthetics fans and geeks all over the world.

The world of Cyberpunk 2077 is a gloomy vision of a brighter future. Body augmentation has been invented to serve society and cause new riots in the streets. Technology, which went side by side with the collapse of society, brought with it severe dependence and poverty, which caused ordinary people to suffer.

In Cyberpunk 2077, players are thrown straight into the dark future. The streets of Night City are filled with stories of people trying to survive in the midst of crime, drugs, violence, and poverty.

What is really cool about the Cyberpunk is the Braindance. Braindance is a cheap way to experience the emotions of another person who lived a more exciting life. Braindance is a digital technology for recording human memories and experiences.

The player can stream Braindance straight into his nervous system through a special brain augmentation called BD player. Braindance allows the viewer to feel all the processes registered in the brain, including emotions and muscle memory of the person. For example, entering the mind of a serial killer, a player receives not only all his memories but also a thirst to kill.

Marvel’s Avengers

The long-awaited Avengers Project was presented earlier this year at the Square Enix press conference.

The story tells about the Avengers split. The developers also noted that the game wouldn’t have anything common with the known plot of the Marvel’s Civil War.

You can play as Captain America (Jeff Schein), Thor (Travis Willingham), Hulk (Troy Baker), Black Widow (Laura Bailey) and Iron Man (Nolan North). The action takes place in San Francisco. After an accident caused by someone trying to steal a source of energy for a new Helicarrier, Captain America died, and the Avengers were dissolved. But five years later, the heroes have to unite for defending a new threat.

The game will be released May 15th, 2020, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

This game was announced in 2016. The approximate release date is Fall – Winter 2019.

During a closed demonstration of The Last of Us: Part 2 at E3 2018, the developers seem to have confirmed that there will be only one playable character. This was announced by the creative director of the game Neil Druckmann. The only playable character in the game is Ellie.

According to Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann, The Last of Us focused on love, while The Last of Us Part 2 focuses entirely on feelings that are completely the opposite of hatred.

The main playable character in the new part of the series will be 19-year-old Ellie. She’s no more a scared little girl, but instead, the new Ellie is embittered and consumed by an irresistible thirst for revenge.

The Last of Us: Part 2 is developed exclusively for the PlayStation 4.

Death Stranding

Death Stranding is a game about alienation and loneliness, which humanity experiences in the era of the Internet much more intensively than ever before. We totally can relate, can’t we? This is Hideo Kojima, and as you know, he is called a genius for a reason.

Death Stranding is the new game of the most shocking video game developer Hideo Kojima, who previously created one of the best representatives of the Stealth Action genre, the Metal Gear Solid series. Despite the fact that the development of the project is actively moving forward, the fans still do not know any details about the plot and most game mechanics. And the mysterious Japanese continues to fuel public interest with surrealistic trailers and famous personalities.

It has long been confirmed that the famous director Guillermo del Toro will take part in the project, as well as actors Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen, whom most domestic viewers remember on the TV series The Walking Dead and Hannibal.

The release date of Death Stranding is November 2019. The game will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Metroid Prime 4

Nintendo has announced a restart of its production of Metroid Prime 4 due to disappointing results of the current developments of the project.

The company’s technical director, Signa Takahashi, said that the game had changed the development team. Now the creators of the previous Metroid Prime parts from Retro Studios, led by executive producer Kensuke Tanabe, are responsible for its production.

Because of these terms, the release date of the fourth part of the series isn’t known yet. The new team will have to start the entire production process from scratch. Nevertheless, we believe that Nintendo knows what they’re doing and we’ll get a high- quality product after all.


FIFA 20 game screenshot

On June 8th, Electronic Arts announced a new part of the FIFA football simulator. They showed us the trailer, opened the working version of the cover, and once again talked about the gameplay changes.

In the debut trailer of FIFA 20, developers presented the main feature of the game - Volta Football street football mode. Previously, a similar mode was in FIFA 97 and 98; EA also released four similar games called FIFA Street (from 2005 to 2012). In Volta Football you can create your own football player and fully customize him - choose sneakers, shorts, t-shirts and many accessories.

The gameplay will be presented as National championships, World tournaments, and singles. Network mode will allow you to compete online. Since 2018, EA Sports once again holds the right to add UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europe League and UEFA Super Cup to the game. Players can control a whole team of players or one specific one throughout the match. There is a top view and from a third party when controlling one player. The developers plan to make a number of improvements to the ball positioning system on the field, team play, and simulation of the struggle.

FIFA 20 will be released on September 27th, 2019. The game is available for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Pokémon Sword and Shield

The seventh generation of Pokémon began in 2016 with the release of Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon on the Nintendo 3DS. Now, three years later, the time has come for the eighth generation.

Nintendo hosted the 15-minute Nintendo Direct, entirely dedicated to the next big part of the Pokémon - Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.

Probably the most important announcement was the release date of the project is November 15th, 2019. In addition, the developers managed to talk about the game itself, including a peculiar raid on four players, and also showed various open locations in completely different biomes - both in fairly quiet forests and in the raging desert. It was noted that when exploring the world, players will always have full control over the camera for better immersion.

In the beginning, Sword and Shield will allow you to choose one of the three animals as a partner - Grookey, Scorbunny or Sobble.

According to the developers, “Sword” and “Shield” will appeal to both newcomers and veterans of the series.

Shenmue 3

The first two parts of Shenmue are the masterpieces of game design of the millennium, setting the tone for all modern games. Cinematography, adventure bias, emphasis on directing and staging - project manager Yu Suzuki was the first to use movie techniques in video games, which opened Pandora’s box.

And imagine the whole tragedy of the situation: the second part, released in 2001, ended with a cliffhanger that is a climax of the game. In 2015, Yu Suzuki announced the third installment and launched a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter that set an all-time record: $ 6.3 million is the largest crowdfunding storyline for a video game.

Shenmue 3 was supposed to be released first in 2017, then in 2018, and now in 2019. However, it can come out in 2020, 2021 or 2022...but we still hope for 2019.
