Just like every year, the Los Angeles Convention Center for 2019’s Electronic Entertainment Expo was full of new game title announcements and demos. Besides, the unfinished games and demo showcases, we have ranked our list of the best upcoming games of 2019. With heavy hitters like Halo: Infinite and Dying Light 2 making rounds on the internet, they are not quite what players are looking for (as ample footage hasn’t been released yet). Despite these honourable mentions, we have listed some promising games that we think you need to have a look at before hitting the game store at the year-end.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel
It is difficult to keep a direct sequel to a popular game secret from the general public prior to its launch, but that’s exactly what Nintendo did in E3 2019! After the highly successful, best selling game, The Legend of Zelda comes its sequel which was the showstopper literally at the final announcement of E3 Nintendo Direct presentation. Being a fan favourite, if you own a Nintendo Switch, then this game should definitely stay in your wishlist!
Empire of Sin
Want to try out a game where you have to outsmart, outgun and outlast your opponents to survive? Seems eerily similar to the top mobile casino games at mobile casinos, right? Well, this Prohibition Era Strategy Game is set in the 1920s where you are tasked with making your own criminal empire by defeating 14 bosses who are both fictional as well as historical characters. Select rackers and make a team of loyal mobsters from union protections and casinos. Influence crime families and make a name for yourself. With a living, breathing recreation of the 1920s, the game allows users to make informed choices where they can choose how to play and make multiple win conditions. The game is due to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC in 2020.
After Witcher 3, CD Projekt Red’s new franchise has sparked mixed reactions especially with the introduction of the protagonist, Keanu Reeves. Some fans have argued that the game has not done justice to the gender and race divisions in the year 2077. Others have pointed out the lack of finesse of the game. But still, this isn’t meant to be a GTA 5 alternative and the journey into an open world, the sleazy underbelly of the California night city is worth taking a shot at. Unlike other futuristic games which heavily rely on prosthetics and neon lights, this game is heavily textured and features first-person role-playing gameplay that is unlike anything you have ever seen before!
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
If you are an adapt fan of The Star Wars franchise and looking for a hero-driven space adventure game, then this game might be the best bet for you! After launching several successful franchises including Titanfall 2, Developer Respawn is back with the Fallen order that is set to dethrone the previous lackluster two iterations of the Star Wars game (by EA games). To be honest, the demo at E3 2019 looks very promising with ample lightsaber combats, snappy dialogues, and Jedi combat power. What’s more, the graphics look excellent and the freedom to travel to other planets and explore the Star Wars lores will be a huge incentive for the Star Wars fanatics to avail this game.
Watch Dogs Legion
In this game, you can play as any character you want. The theory has been tested in several games but always failed to deliver the oomph that it promises. But with this iteration of Watch Dogs, it seems like Ubisoft has managed to pull off the impossible, The game is set in post-Brexit future London where you have to recruit disillusioned Londoners to join the team of hackers collectively known as DedSec. The city is full of private military contractors and if you plan on going head to head with them, you are given two options: fight or surrender. If you surrender, you will fail the mission but you can continue as the same character after spending some time in jail. At E3, the demo looked really promising and the post-Brexit London graphics is by far one the best video game renders that we have ever seen.
