The calendar has turned to July which means we are halfway through the insanity that has been 2020. As the world struggles to contain Covid-19, a light appears at the end of the tunnel. The back half of the year will feature some very anticipated video games. Here are our top 5 most anticipated games of 2020. Making the list are 4 titles that are most likely on your radar and one that most definitely should be.
5. Star Wars Squadrons
Electronic Arts recently unveiled Star Wars Squadrons and the first trailer instantly gave us flashbacks to Rogue Squadron. Squadrons appear to expand and redefine the ship combat from Battlefront II, while giving us a story to follow and a seemingly promising multiplayer mode. We can’t wait to climb into the cockpit of legendary Star Wars ships like the X-Wing and Tie Fighter. Star Wars Squadrons is set to launch on October 2, 2020.
4. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Ubisoft’s long-running franchise, Assassins Creed will allow us to live out our Viking fantasies taking us to the time of Viking invasions of England. The Assassin’s Creed series has been hit or miss, though mostly hit. We loved Black Flag, Origins, and Odyessy. Hopefully the extra development time will allow Ubisoft to deliver another top-notch experience. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla raid store just in time for Christmas in December of 2020.
3. RetroMania Wrestling
It’s no secret that many of us are diehard wrestling fans. One of our favorite games is WWF WrestleFest. WrestleFest put you in the boots of grapplers like Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior, Jake The Snake Roberts, and other WWF Titans. Fast forward to 2020 and Retrosoft is set to bring us the official follow up to the legendary WrestleFest with RetroMania Wrestling. While the games will not feature the aforementioned wrestlers it will bring us a great list of current and past pro wrestling stars like The Road Warriors (who did appear in WrestleFest), ECW favorites The B.w.O, Nova, Stevie Richards and The Blue Meaine, Tommy Dreamer, Current NWA Champion Nick Aldis, AEW star Colt Cabana, former WWE stars, and massive wrestle figure collectors Matt Cardona and Brian Myers a.k.a Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins. These stars are joined by many other greats of the squared circle. RetroMania Wrestling will slams it’s way to consoles and PC via Steam this August.
