Top 10 Games for This Fall
- 2019-09-06 11:30
Fall is coming, and it is the perfect time to treat yourself with new games full of adventures, mind cracking puzzles, and amazing graphics. It is only obvious that game developers pick this time of the year to release their masterpieces. While the beginning and the middle of 2019 was significant for the game industry, it looks like fall months will bring us a new level of joy.
Ten Epic Games
These games will probably be the last we see until 2020. This means they must be great enough to leave us with the best memories of 2019. This list is small and does not contain all the amazing games that will come out in September, October or November. I tried to gather here different genres, to provide you more opportunities.
Borderlands 3 is out on September 13, 2019. Available on: Xbox One, PS4, PC.
Borderlands 3 may look and sound (from multiple gunshots) like a typical shooter set in a distant post-apocalyptic world. But there is much more to it than just loot gathering and shooting. Two previous parts of Borderlands are still incredibly successful among players. This is why many people are eagerly waiting for the promising new chapter with its weird and dark but unpredicted humor, unique cartoon graphics, and never-ending arsenal of great weapons.
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is out on October 1, 2019. Available on: Nintendo Switch.
The first edition of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening was released back in 1993, for a portable Game Boy device. The game quickly gained popularity and millions devoted fans who were waiting for its new adaptation. Many of us are still wondering if Link will be able to get out of our troubles and come home. Even without Zelda, Hyrule, and Gannon, adventures of Link still seem interesting and promising. And let’s not forget how cute Link and everything around him looks.
Destiny 2 Relaunch
Destiny 2 is out on October 1, 2019. Available on: Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
Even the trailer looks powerful enough to join the defenders' team and start fighting the darkness. But you have to wait for a while, mastering your skills to fight the battle. The first attempt of Bungie developers was not appreciated as much as they hoped. Now, they want to receive a second chance. The original version of Destiny 2 was released 2 years ago. Now Bungie releases the expansion, named Shadowkeep, with all possible attractions that may improve the situation.
Its genre of loot shooter is similar to Borderlands 3 game. After Bungie broke off with Activision-Blizzard, they made the game free to play and removed glitches and bugs. Shadowkeep can be bought for $34.99.
The Outer Worlds
The Outer Worlds is out on October 25, 2019. Available on: Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC.
Space colonies on stars, outstanding scenery, strong personalities, and businessmen who want to make money from the situation. The Outer Worlds game has an epic trailer and promising characters somewhere in between good and evil. This is an alternate world that has been living under its own rules after the election of Teddy Roosevelt. So, in this world without Roosevelt as a former president, no one fought big companies, giving them as much space as they wanted. Your character wakes up from long cryosleep just to see the new dawn of capitalism. Now you have to understand what happened and how to survive.
This is the first-person RPG from Fallout producers. You will find similarities with this popular game, like its dark humor, graphics, and mysteries behind the perfect scenery. Yes, The Outer Worlds is not so original about a post-apocalyptic world. But at least the whole idea is fresh. There is no script for you. Do whatever you like. If you want to kill, kill, if you want to sneak around, just do it. You can choose to be a spy or fight like a soldier.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is out on October 25, 2019. Available on: PC, Xbox One, PS4.
Call of Duty is a legend, and even without playing the game, no one has doubts that it will be a total success. This game is a part of Call of Duty greatness and will be a present for all CoD fans for behaving well the whole year. The previous version was revolutionary for its multiplayer option, instead of a single-player classic. However, this year, a single-player mode comes back again, with a new detailed plot and lots of dark humor. At least, this is what Infinity Ward developer promises us, besides more bloody combats.
You will have to find yourself in the middle of the battle with all the details, including NGOs, and civilian casualties. New Call of Duty provides you with the possibility to commit war crimes on the battlefield. If you want to become a real soldier, here is your chance. Just remember, you will receive the whole experience, with daily worries and problems. We don’t know whether it will be fun, but we definitely have to try it.
Luigi’s Mansion 3
Luigi’s Mansion 3 is out on October 31, 2019. Available on: Nintendo Switch.
Luigi’s Mansion 3 is something you don’t want to miss if you are a fan of Mario and his brother, Mushroom Kingdom, or spooky ghosts. Well, of course, they are not so spooky… it is Mushroom’s Kingdom, after all, with cuteness everywhere. So, ghosts have never looked so vivid. And the mansion itself is full of bright colors and comfy furniture, which makes it a good place to live, despite being haunted.
Don’t forget to play with Gooigi, the latest invention that can follow ghosts anywhere, except for the bathroom full of water. You will meet all your favorite characters. The game is atmospheric and fun to play on Halloween. Don’t forget about cool vacuum cleaner that Luigi transformed into a ghost sucking machine.
Death Stranding is out on November 8, 2019. Available on: PlayStation 4.
This new world looks both terrifying and fascinating. It is like a techno nightmare you can’t help but want to watch till the end. This game is a giant project of Hideo Kojima and Sony that involves numerous celebrities. All of them created a surreal adventure that happens to a man running across the USA with a baby on his chest. The baby is far from ordinary, as the man uses it as a teleport between death and life.
You will hear the voices of Mads Mikkelson, Norman Reedus, Margaret Qualley and Guillermo Del Toro. This is one of the most mysterious games, and I don’t know much about it either. Many fans are waiting for the new game from Kojima just to see his twisted but brilliant mind behind the plot again.
Pokémon Sword and Shield
Pokémon Sword and Shield game is out on November 15, 2019. Available on: Nintendo Switch.
Good news, Pokémon lovers! The year is full of surprises for you: the movie, game for masters for mobile devices, and now Pokémon Sword and Shield. This is not just an ordinary game. It is a 3D game full of your favorite creatures and their trainers.
You can catch Pokémon and train them for the battle arena, where all the magic happens. This game will be the first one in the series that jumped from Nintendo’s handheld devices to the console. Forget about Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee and Pickachu as they were just remakes of old games. The new epoch of Pokémon games begins now. You can catch new creatures and save your favorite old ones, explore new mechanics of battles and maps. Just don’t forget to train your Pokémon well or you will lose everything.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is out on November 22, 2019. Available on: Xbox One, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch.
The words “Trust in the force” that we hear in the trailer can become a motto of the game. This is not the first Star Wars game created during the last years, but it is the first Star Wars game created by Apex Legends developers. It is based on the original story, so you can dive into the world that keeps the same chronology and characters. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order game takes place after the Revenge of the Sith and before Rogue One events. Jedi are hunted and they have to be sneaky and skillful to survive in this tough place.
You control Padawan Cal Kestis who needs to master his fighting skills before he can fight against the Empire. The game is a third-person action. You will be able to explore the map, fight on lightsabers, and possibly even save others.
Doom Eternal is out on November 15, 2019. Available on: Xbox One, PS4, PC
Have you missed Doom? The evergreen shooter makes its epic come back in Doom Eternal edition. Now you have to withstand hell demons in the post-apocalyptic world full of misery and horror. The franchise itself is what really started the whole first-person shooter genre and made it popular.
Doom Eternal is a sequel to Doom’s reboot in 2016. Now you as a slayer have to go through all the demons and stay alive. Sometimes you will fight angels. Your mission is still to finish the quest and get rid of supernatural monsters that do not belong to your world.
The Games We Wait for the Most
Many of the above-mentioned games are sequels, prequels or somewhere in between the series. I was wondering whether it is just me or everyone else also prefer to come back to their favorite well-known and beloved characters rather than try something new? I honestly tried to add more newcomers to the list, and I have no doubts that I did not mention many great ones here. So, please share your own list here or express your thoughts on games in the list.
It is also remarkable how many action first-person shooters we are waiting for. In case you prefer other genres, there are Pokémon and Mario, and a mysterious post-apocalyptic world. And don’t forget Star Wars. As for the platforms, I tried to gather games for each of them. Which platform do you prefer?
