Upcoming PC Games 2019: All the best titles coming to your gaming rig

The PC is arguably the best place to play games, especially if you’re a stickler for the very best graphics and performance out there without the compromise often encountered with PS4 and Xbox One.

It’s also an incredibly flexible platform with various components allowing you to experiment freely with hardware, whether it’s the newest graphics card or processor you’re itching to try out.

We imagine all the latest titles are ready and waiting to put your rig to the test. So, Trusted Reviews has compiled all the biggest and best experience coming to PC in 2019 and beyond.

Master Chief Collection

Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Developer: 343 Industries

Release Date: TBA

After an obscene amount of fan demand and surprisingly unsubtle teasing by Microsoft, Halo: The Master Chief Collection is finally confirmed for PC. Coming to Steam and the Windows Store, the compilation will follow a staggered release starting with Halo: Reach, followed by each title in the beloved sci-fi series.

This is to ensure that each title is ported properly to the platform with no compromise. That means, once the wait is over players can expect 4K resolutions, HDR support, customisable key inputs and more, with many of the games appearing on the PC for the first time in history.

Phoenix Point

Developer: Snapshot Games

Release Date: June 2019

Acting as a spiritual successor to the beloved X-COM series, Phoenix Point is a love letter to everything we adore about the strategy role-playing genre. Set in 2047, the world is in the midst of an alien invasion, and has no choice but to defend itself and valiantly fight back.

Many players will expect Phoenix Point to play much like the modern iteration of X-COM, and they’d be right in their assumptions. However, Snapshot Games is making a few subtle innovations to the beloved formula with this project.

For example, aliens will react to your tactics with varied types of mutations that will make things more difficult as you progress. This is an evolving threat determined to defeat you, and players must act accordingly to emerge triumphant. This is definitely one to watch in 2019.

shenmue 3

Shenmue 3

Developer: YS Net

Release Date: August 27, 2019

Born from a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign, Shenmue 3 is the sequel many fans had resigned themselves to never coming to light. But by the end of 2019, it will finally be a reality. How it will bring Ryo Hazuki’s story of revenge to its conclusion still remains a mystery, though.

Recent months has seen more and more of Shenmue 3 showcased to the general public, unveiling how the story might unfold as players explore a smaller yet equally ambitious world when compared to previous entries. Fingers crossed it lives up to the hype.

sekiro shadows die twice

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Developer: FromSoftware

Release Date: March 22, 2019

From the creators of Dark Souls and Bloodborne comes Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, an all-new action experience that promises the same level of unforgiving challenge the studio is so lovingly renowned for. Having played a small chunk of it ourselves, this could be something quite special.

Set during the Sengoku Period, you play as a disgraced shinobi on a mission to take out a man who attacked him and kidnapped his lord. Taking a far more direct narrative approach to From’s other titles, we’ll see a speaking protagonist and entirely offline experience this time around.

Prepare to do battle with undead warriors, giant snakes and all manner of horrible creatures when Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice launches in March 2019.

Cyberpunk 2077

Developer: CD Projekt Red

Release Date: TBA

After the blockbuster success and critical acclaim of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and its equally excellent duo of expansions, the expectations for CD Projekt Red’s next project is unbelievably high. Whether it can live up to such ambitions with Cyberpunk 2077 remains to be seen.

However, recent months saw 45 minutes of gameplay footage released, and it happened to showcase a dense, complicated first-person RPG that we’re awfully excited to play for ourselves. Granted, it was work-in-progress, but still presented a wonderfully gritty world not afraid to push boundaries.

DOOM Eternal

Developer: id Software

Release Date: TBA

After the rampant gore and undeniable success of the 2016 reboot, it’s no surprise that fans are clamouring for more blood-soaked action in DOOM Eternal. This sequel takes the fight to Earth as demons invade our planet from the fiery depths of hell.

From the snippets of gameplay we’ve seen thus far, DOOM Eternal is all about bigger, better and bloodier weapons capable of ripping (and tearing) anything that’s stupid enough to stand in your way. The Marine won’t stop for anybody, especially if it’s demons posing a threat to humanity.

halo infinite

Halo Infinite

Developer: 343 Industries

Release Date: TBA

Little is known about Halo Infinite thus far, although we do now it will act as the continuation to Halo 5: Guardians, essentially replacing Halo 6. Unveiled with a stunning trailer, Infinite teases the return of Master Chief amidst a much larger, more ambitious world.

We’re hoping desperately for a conclusion to The Reclaimer Trilogy after the stunning cliffhanger at the end of Guardians which once again brought the fate of our galaxy into the limelight. It’s another day at the office for Master Chief, but one we can’t wait to play.

Total War: Three Kingdoms

Total War Three Kingdoms

Developer: Creative Assembly

Release Date: Marcy 7, 2019

Creative Assembly’s latest real-time strategy epic is shaping up to be something quite special indeed, expanding upon the series with huge new features and subtle improvements galore.

The Han Dynasty is on the verge of collapse and relentless warlords are fighting for control over the lands of China. While not entirely accurate when it comes to history, players will be free to shape and partake in some of the battles that would go onto shape the country’s future.
