As we head into the new year, we’ve rounded up some of the best and not-so-best games that came out in 2019. And now, we’re looking ahead, moving forward, and bringing you some of our most anticipated games that’ll be releasing for PC gamers in 2020.
This’ll be a mixed bag of games across various genres and play styles, so we’ve made sure to pick out the games we’re looking forward to most! A PC gamer but not quite sure what you’re gonna need for the latest and greatest of next year’s lineup? Don’t worry, we’ve researched and the exact specifications that you should have to best enjoy these games with!
Well, we tried to anyway, but some games haven’t really given us much details, so we’ll have to make do. Do note that we did add in some games that were released on other platforms, but are coming for PC next year, as well as games that released late 2019 because to be frank, you could still play these games into the New Year. So do check out our lineup, and let us know what you think of the list, or what should’ve been there instead!
That being said, let’s get to the games!
#1. Cyberpunk 2077
And now, for our most anticipated game release of 2020, it has to be the one, the only, Cyberpunk 2077. It has been hyped and shown off for the longest time, ever since 2013 when they announced the game.
But in reality, production actually started pretty much in 2015, after the launch of The Witcher 3. So realistically, this game has been 5 years in the making, and we’re just as hyped as everybody else.
Cyberpunk 2077 is CD Projekt Red’s next open-world RPG, and they’ve already got a repertoire of another massive open world RPG, The Witcher series. High expectations for the game is putting it lightly when you think about the scope, and history behind it.
Cyberpunk 2077 is actually inspired by a tabletop role-playing game of the same name, and is set in a dystopian megapolis called Night City and is set in California. This megacity is essentially broken down into six districts, each with their own different socio-economic and cultural aspects.
So essentially, stepping into another district would, on paper, feel like moving to a new ‘world’ or area. There are crazy looking gangs, corporate syndicates, hackers, and a lot of neon. Like really, there’s pretty much neon any
and everywhere you go. It’s a sort of melting pot when you take into account the scale of what they’re trying accomplish the different factions in game.
You’re thrust into the world as a freelance mercenary named V, and you’re going for a one-of-a-kind implant that will basically make you immortal. You’ll be able to customise all aspects of your character’s cyberware, skillset, and essentially crafting your playstyle. You’ll also be able to change stats and attributes such as replacing your technologically replicated body modifications, appearance, and even your class tree. Safe to say, it’s pretty customisable. Adding that to the massive, beautiful cyberpunk city and RPG style choices that actually impact the world around you, it adds to a good time, for us anyway.
And that’s pretty much all we know about the game thus far.
Oh, and Keanu Reeves is in it, so that’s
already a HUGE plus. We don’t have the recommended specs from CD Projekt Red just yet, so we’re basing our recommendations on the game’s demo at E3 2018. So safe to say, these recommendations are true to life considering they’re coming from them directly. Cyberpunk 2077 would best be played
with an Intel i7-8700K @ 3.70GHz CPU, G.Skill Ripjaws V, 2x16GB RAM, a 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD, and GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card. The game will still probably run on lower specced setups, but it probably won’t be as gorgeous as it would be with at least having a minimum of the above mentioned.
