15 upcoming pc games we cant wait to play
E3 may be canceled, but replaced by a series of smaller digital-focused events, showcasing dozens of new and upcoming games. We have seen IGN's summer games, guerilla group livestream, PC game show, and future game show. Although the theme, atmosphere, and presentation style of each show are different, they all bring a selection of interesting game trailers.
If you missed some or all of these live events, you might be missing some more interesting announcements about upcoming games. There will be a lot of exciting gaming news this time of year, but sometimes the game can get caught between bigger announcements.
We've handpicked 15 game trailers that we think are the most worthy of your attention, and we're going to be playing with excitement when the game finally launches. All of these trailers were released in one of the different game events over the weekend, but you only need to watch the trailers here to learn about the exciting game announcements. All of these games will enter our almighty gray box, and each game has been confirmed for PC, although some games will also enter other platforms.
As shown during the PC Gaming Show, this is an exquisite wilderness survival game that involves survival in adversity, exploring remote forests, building huts, and being one with nature. It has a beautiful color palette and an attractive visual style. It is now available for early access through the Epic Game Store.
As featured on The Guerrilla Collective broadcast, "Eldest Souls" sounds great. This is a fast-paced pixel boss game with punishing difficulty and precise movements. When you destroy each boss, you will gain a skill based on their attributes. It has an interesting combination of RPG system and action games, and has some very creative enemy designs. It is currently scheduled to be released on Steam later this year, but there is no exact release date yet.
was shown on the PC Gaming Show, which is the sequel to Everspace in 2016. It is a vast and expansive space shooting game with a vast space for interstellar exploration. You also have in-depth and powerful ship customization options, as well as space battles with dozens of different enemy ships. Compared with the original game, the sequel seems to have been greatly improved in terms of polish and graphic fidelity. The Early Access version on Steam is expected to be released at the end of this year, and the final version is scheduled to be released sometime in 2021.
We already know a bit about Ghostunner, but the new trailer that was shown on IGN's summer game livestream got us even more excited. This is a super violent neon light free running murder simulator, it looks and plays great. You are a very deadly and highly mobile assassin, running and jumping in a hostile industrialized future. You will die in one fell swoop, so you must move on. You can dodge the enemy's fire in the air, you can run straight towards the enemy to cut it into small pieces, if you are fast enough, you can take it down before the enemy sees you. We played the previous demo and liked it. We can’t wait to release the final version of this game on Steam later this year. One of the highlights of the
PC Gaming Show, Gloomwood is a redesigned first-person shooter with a minimalist low-poly art style, reminiscent of characters such as Thief or Quake, and looks like a direct 90s. Many sneak moves try to jump onto the enemy, and you crawl around waiting for the opportunity to stab them behind. It is not entirely focused on stealth, because when you find yourself at a loss, you have a shotgun and other weapons. It has some immersive simulation elements. You can take a look at the things lurking through the cracks in the door. Different surfaces will produce sounds of different volume of your steps. You can pick up and throw things to distract the enemy. Can. This is an attractive concept with a very good visual style. A free demo is now available on Steam, but there is no specific release date for the full game.
The continuation of the retro low-poly theme is Hotshot Racing, which was featured at the Future Game Show. This is a bright and colorful retro racing game, obviously inspired by arcade racers like Daytona USA and Virtua Racer. Here, when you slide around the curve, you will race down the track, you will overtake the police in the pursuit of the cat and the mouse and you will charge your jetliner to get ahead of the others. It has a very bold use of color and lots of clean lines, as well as solid tracks and cars with no texture. Most of today's racing games value themselves highly, so this is a breath of fresh air. There is no specific release date yet, but it will launch on Steam sometime this summer.
Well, this is a little change of pace. Lake just announced on The Guerrilla Collective livestream that this is a very beneficial premise. In 1986, you played as a delivery driver, delivering letters, packages and packages to different people in the community in a small town by a lake in Illinois in 1986. This is an open-world driving game with a low-risk and relaxed atmosphere. It's not so much about overcoming particularly demanding challenges, it's about immersing yourself in the game world. You will meet different characters along the way, and there is a branch story to follow, but this is the softest part of life first. Lake will land on Steam before the end of the year.
I am not afraid of any ghosts. If neither are you, you may be able to chase the soul at midnight. This new
Evil souls will lurk in this online game. This is a multiplayer survival and search game where you can control a team of ghost hunters or reverse the situation and play as ghosts. There are a variety of interesting ghost hunting equipment to play with, and there are many different types of items for ghosts to hide and possess. It will land on Steam when it's ready, but there is no release date yet.
Taking clear inspiration from various Souls games from From Software, Mortal Shell is an action RPG with overwhelming difficulty, elaborate boss battles, and a depressing tone. Your movements and attacks are slow and deliberate, encouraging you to timing the attack correctly, rather than rushing over without discipline. We will have to wait and see if he can release the games that inspired him exclusively on the Epic Game Store when he launches Mortal Shell later this year.
At the PC Game Show, we saw Per Aspera, which is a game about the transformation of Mars. You will gradually transform the earth to support human life by raising the water level, lowering the temperature and keeping the air breathable. He has done a lot of research and extracted Mars geographic data from NASA, and you will see that he has developed a series of interrelated livable structures while trying to manage the complex overlapping resource needs of human colonies in the extraterrestrial world. For those who like to try complex modeling simulations, or dream of leaving the floating rocks we call Earth, this may be a game. Per Aspera will be launched on Steam later this year.
During the PC Game Show, they showed us a new trailer for Prodeus, another retro-style first-person shooter game. This combines classic aesthetics with modern visual effects. When you hit an enemy with a bullet, the enemy will explode in the fountain of blood, your laser weapon will produce impressive lighting effects, and the explosion will convincingly Illuminate the area around you. The game includes an in-game level navigator for testing player-made levels, and annotated by an appropriate metal soundtrack. Prodeus will launch on Steam later this year.
was showcased at the PC Game Show. This is a relaxing game that involves sailing a boat powered by a nominal red sail through the vast and vast desert. There is a peaceful setting to score, and there are large open deserts to explore, dotted with a few civilizations. These atmospheres are reminiscent of the nautical elements of games like "Wind Waker", and the world design is also reminiscent of "Journey". Pay close attention when it goes live on Steam sometime in the future.
Show As part of the Guerrilla Collective broadcast, Roki is a side-scrolling film adventure where you will face an unforgivable frozen desert and encounter many "monsters that shouldn't exist." Roki draws inspiration from Scandinavian folklore, places and characters inspired by classic fairy tales. Roki is scheduled to launch on Steam on July 23. This remake of
has been around for a while, but the PC Game Show is the first time we have seen its actual effect. This is a very ambitious game at the time, involving mysterious themes and ritual murder. This remake is particularly notable because it was handled by Nightdive Studios, who did a great job on remakes before the 90s, such as System Shock 2, Doom 64, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, etc. Their reproductions are usually very faithful to the original source material, but they use the most powerful systems available today to improve visual effects and performance, and eliminate any errors or other defects in the original version. Shadow Man Remastered will support resolutions up to 4K, restore some content that was originally removed from the game, and subtly tweak some enemies' AI to work better. We are very happy to release this horror action game next year.
I saw some of the first GIFs on Twitter and they immediately caught my eye. The full trailer provided as part of IGN Summer Of Games shows that this is going to be a very interesting game. Skate Story uses classic skate actions from games like Tony Hawk or EA's Skate, but combines them with live psychedelic demos. Instead of skating through empty warehouses and downtown parks, explore a dramatic world of abstract architecture and eerie lights. The skating itself may seem realistic, but the area you are traveling through does not seem to be the case. Maybe it's more about immersing yourself in this special mood than a crazy combination, but of course we want to know more. Skate Story has no release date yet, the developer simply said "coming soon".
This is our top pick for game trailers that we showcase at these different live game events over the weekend, but if you find any other noteworthy game announcements, please let us know in the comments. There has been a huge commotion among different developers and publishers, and the cancellation of almost all major game industry events has forced many industry participants to think about how to deal with this changing landscape. Digital activities like this may become part of the future landscape, but it remains to be seen whether they can completely replace the demand for field boots in future major industry activities.
