Upcoming Games 2019

22 Feb


Anthem is a 4-player co-op open world third person shooter. Players are able to equip exosuits that allow them to fly and swim across a huge and detailed scenery riddled with mean looking enemies and absurd atmospheric effects. It might be one of the best Co-op Games of 2019. You should look forward to this one.

Anno 1800

The dawn of the industrial age is upon us. Anno 1800 puts you in charge of a growing colonial trade empire. Although the recipe stays the same as in previous games, this new Anno takes its always impressive graphics to a new level and adds brand new top-level management gameplay mechanics. If you’re into management or city-building games, make sure you don’t miss this one. A definite landmark for this Upcoming Games – 2019 list.

Dawn of Man

Grab a stick! No, not that one! -Lead your tribe through the rough early times of pre-civilization. Survive in a pre-historic setting against famine, wildlife, disease and warfare. A new management and tribe-building game that promises to deliver a very unique experience.

Tropico 6

Check the full review here!
Sandy beaches, pirates, pillaging and bananas… No, we’re not talking about Sea of Thieves. This is the return of El Presidente! We’re not expecting a great revolution (notice the clever pun here?) in gameplay mechanics, but Tropico 6 features multiplayer archipelagoes, new roads and transportation systems and “imported” landmarks. What’s not to like? We’re all looking forward to a few days of summer after a cold winter. Go play Tropico 6! Or else.

Total War: Three Kingdoms

Total War: Three Kingdoms is a new iteration on the Total War series. It takes place in ancient China and is loosely based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms. The game won’t stray too much from previous titles, but it should introduce several brand new game mechanics that focus on narrative, cinematic combat, and character progression. Battles can now also be resolved with an epic duel between generals. This should be an interesting title to explore!

The Division 2

Check out my full review HERE! -Tom Clancy’s: The Division 2 takes place in Washington D.C.,  7 months after its predecessor, where different survivor factions escalated their rivalry into a full-blown civil war. The Division 2 will feature decent co-op gameplay, PVE & PVP and astounding graphics in a large open-world map. The Division 2 will be ideal for a relaxed gaming session with friends. Can’t wait to try it out!

Q1 2019Jan-Mar


With graphics that will somewhat remind you of a pixelated Darkest Dungeon, Stoneshard is a turn-based RPG focused on exploring a procedurally-generated medieval world, managing your own caravan while trying to stay sane. The prologue is available right now on Steam. Decide the fate of a kingdom in this grim adventure!

Q1 2019Jan-Mar


Trüberbrook might be the most unique game in this Upcoming Games 2019 list. Not because of its gameplay, since it seems to be just another point-and-click adventure, but because of its theme, atmosphere and graphic style. The scenery and characters have literally been hand-made and animated frame by frame. The game is set in the 1960’s rural Germany in a tense Cold War context. The player will find himself amidst a puzzling sci-fi mystery.

Q1 2019Jan-Mar

Imperator: Rome

Paradox does it again! They decided that the middle-ages was not enough and pushed the timeline further back. Imperator: Rome is the new grand-strategy game that every Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis, Victoria and Hearts of Iron player craves for right now. It should keep up with the general gameplay tradition from the aforementioned games, but it focuses a little bit more on character progression, battle tactics and provincial management. An easy first pick in this Upcoming Games – 2019 list due to the high-quality grand-strategy games that only Paradox is able to accomplish.

Q2 2019Apr-Jun

Mansions of Madness

Boo! Mansions of Madness is the amazingly popular board game that now will have a videogame counterpart in 2019! Set in a Lovecraftian ambiance, the players are sent to a haunted mansion to meet their fears in a journey to insanity …or death. Even though it seems to be a single-player exploration game with multiple characters, this creepy-but-not-necessarily-horror title should be a thrill to play.

    Yeah, Anthem is one of my most expected games for 2019. Besides that one, I’m also looking forward for pirate game Skull and Bones from Ubisoft.
