NEW GAMES OF 2019
Keeping an eye out
After the bumper year that was 2018, it might seem unlikely that 2019 can top it. There are some fantastic releases lined up though, from Bioware’s action MMO Anthem, to a new Pokemon game from Nintendo. To help you plan out your year, and to give you a single page where you can check all of the 2019 video game releases, we’ve put together this Video Game Releases 2019 Guide. We’ll break down the year, month by month, and give release dates for all of the games we know about. As new release dates are announced, we’ll be sure to add to the list, same with any pesky delays that are announced. Let’s take a look at what we can expect from 2019.
We’ll be updating this page with all and any major 2019 video game releases as they are announced. If you happen to notice anything missing, then be sure to leave a comment down below and we’ll add it in.
With more and more games seemingly being released each year, it’s also getting harder and harder to put together a complete guide like this. For our rundown of the biggest new games of 2019, we’ve already surpassed the depth of its 2018 equivalent.
2019 brings with it a whole host of new games that are sure to scratch whatever itch you may have. From long delayed games finally getting their chance in the spotlight to brand new IPs with the marketing budget of the GDP of Burkina Faso, there’s plenty to get excited about.
We’re dividing our guide to the new games of 2019 into each month of the year and will be adding to it whenever a new game is announced for the year. Likewise, if a game is delayed we will also move it around in the release schedule. We are also focusing specifically on new games only, so no remasters. For all games due in 2019 without a specific release date, we’ll be adding it to the TBC section.

We hope you are convinced that upgrading a PC for gaming can be significantly cheaper than buying a console system. But we want to remind you that the experience you get out of it will be significantly different. Multiplayer game play, specifically, is extremely different. With a console, all you need are a few extra controllers and you and your friends can all join in and play together on the couch. Alternatively, each console offers online game play for some titles via its company’s online offering (such as Xbox Live). With a PC, multiplayer is mostly limited to online game play (which is generally free, unlike Xbox Live), with the exception of a LAN party. If you want to play PC games in the same room with all of your friends, each person will need a computer, and someone will need to know how to setup the LAN network, which is quite a bit more complicated than selecting the four-player mode on the TV screen.
The only other downside to PC gaming is the considerable technical experience needed to upgrade a PC. It could very easily take up to a full day’s research just to figure out which parts to buy, so even though it might cost about $130 to purchase the parts, you’ll still need to invest some time into the technical aspect of the upgrade.
