2019 brings many new game releases including some long-anticipated sequels and remakes.
Big names like EA, Square Enix, and Capcom are keeping gamers busy all year round. Updates are another way game companies are keeping older titles fresh. For example, find out how mods can improve Fallout 4 supply lines.
From classic fighters to RPGs, there are games in almost every genre on the list. So if you’ve already finished all the hottest games from last year, check out some of the best games coming out in 2019.
1. Fallout 4 (Fallout 4 Supply Lines and New Mods)
Although Fallout 4 was released in 2015, many fans are still faithful to this post-apocalyptic RPG. Bethesda recently released an update with a bunch of Creation Club content. Patches keep older games fresh, and this is one reason why players still love the game even after the release of Fallout 76.
Mods are also released each year. If you’re unfamiliar with mods, they’re downloadable alterations to an original game made by fans. These modifications alter the look of a game or make a feature more useful.
One of the features mods improve are the supply lines in the game. Certain Fallout 4 mods, like Sim Settlements, automate the creation of supply lines.
2. Kingdom Hearts 3
The original Kingdom Hearts released way back in 2002. Since then, there have been multiple sequels released on a variety of platforms from the Game Boy Advance to mobile phones.
This beloved series by gaming giant Square Enix has captured the hearts of fans of both Disney and Final Fantasy. After twelve years of waiting, the sequel to Kingdom Hearts 2 is finally out.
Kingdom Hearts 3 has a visually appealing combat system and the best graphics in the series to date. Plus, there are lots of popular Disney worlds from Toy Story to Pirates of the Caribbean to explore. If you’re a fan of this series, the latest installment will bring out the inner kid in you.
3. Resident Evil 2 (Remake)
Resident Evil 2 was first released in 1998 for the PlayStation. It became one of the series’ best sellers, and many fans have fond memories of the second installment.
The 2019 remake features stunning graphics, improved controls, and a whole new experience. Capcom remade the entire game with the same technology behind Resident Evil 7.
It’s easy to immerse yourself in the game with a 3D environment and improved lighting effects that put you into the horror game mindset. Arguably the best part of the game is the zombies, which look creepier than ever.
BioWare is yet another gaming giant behind titles like Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and Star Wars: The Old Republic. Like their other games, Anthem has plenty of varied missions to play and features breathtaking graphics.
Anthem is an online game that focuses on forming player teams to accept and take on objectives together. The game is full of sci-fi elements to geek out over (like the jet pack method of travel) and rich new environments to explore.
5. Devil May Cry 5
Devil May Cry 5 features a streamlined combat system and lots of immersive story content. Many fans are calling Devil May Cry 5 the best in the series so far. Like other games in the series, you can expect to see cool character designs, responsive combat, and gorgeous environments to explore.
The game focuses on Nero and Dante along with a new character named V. True to the series, the game has a solid storyline and plenty of demon-slaying action.
6. Apex Legends
Apex Legends is yet another addition to the mega-popular battle royale genre. The game is a mix of sci-fi elements and X-Men style superheroes called Legends.
Find the best team combination by pairing up with characters that complement one another. You join a team, drop from the sky, and land on the map without any weapons or equipment. The point is to find the best loot before any of the other teams and be the last one standing.

7. Dead or Alive 6
Dead or Alive has always been a reliable fighter with eccentric and colorful character designs. You might be familiar with the physics engine and the well-endowed female characters.
The sixth installment diverges a bit from the fan service and focuses more on the flashy combat. However, certain outfits are still available for download and you can unlock others. Dead or Alive 6 is an enjoyable fighter for both strategists and button mashers alike.
8. Left Alive
Left Alive is a stealth shooter set in the Front Mission universe. The game is a survival/stealth combination, which is a bit different for Square Enix.
The game forces you to sneak around, outgunned and overpowered by the colossal Wanzers. Wanzers are the giant mecha suits in the game, and lethal weapons of war. The point is to avoid letting the enemies see you, not to fight them, which is easier said than done.
As you make your way through the game, you can also pick up bits of lore to learn more about the world.
9. Metro Exodus
The next game in the Metro series takes place in a post-apocalyptic Russia. In this future, nuclear war devastated Moscow.
As expected, survival is tough in this wasteland. You have to find resources, withstand extreme weather, and fight deformed nuclear monsters. Metro Exodus is a first-person shooter, so expect lots of pulse-pounding combat.
For the first time in the series, you have the option to scavenge and explore the world. The ability to wander off the path makes this a far more immersive experience.
10. The Division 2
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is a multiplayer shooter and a sequel to the first game. The game takes place in Washington D.C. after a smallpox pandemic.
As an online game, you group up with other players to take on objectives and raids. The Division 2 is jam-packed with rich story missions and plenty of open-world activities.
Distinct environments really add to the game’s atmosphere. There are plenty of strategic vantage points on the map and different dangers to watch out for.
