New PC games of 2019

Ah, summer. The time of year where the sun smiles upon us, bugs and beasts alike come out to play, and humans all stay inside playing games because ew, gross.

New games of September 2019

Last Oasis

September 3 | Donkey Crew | Link | Survival Vehicle Battle IDK
You remember that steampunk spider tank thing from Will Smith’s Wild Wild West? It’s a survival game with a ton of vehicles to battle like that, but the tanks also have wings, and you’ll do some standard on-foot battling to boot. It’s probably way better than the movie.

Conan Chop Chop

September 3 | Funcom | Link | Hack-n-Slash
Did you know Funcom has the Conan the Barbarian license? Well...DID YOU? This take on the big barbarian’s world looks almost like one of those Cyanide & Happiness comics, but you’ll get to chop stuff up with four-player co-op. We were honestly surprised this one is real.

River City Girls

September 5 | WayForward | Link | Co-Op Brawler
River City Girls is a co-op 2D brawler from WayForward, the Shantae developers. The studio has dipped into the genre before with 2012's Double Dragon Neon, but it's still a big departure from their usual style. If the game is even half as stylish as the trailer, it's worth keeping an eye on.

Fantasy General 2

September 5 | Owned By Gravity | Link | Turn-Based Strategy

A modern sequel to the '90s wargame, Fantasy General 2 will let you build an army using more than 75 different units and heroes, from stag riders to werebears. Units can be upgraded, augmented and can grow into battle-hardened heroes, but if they get eaten by a dragon, they're gone for good. Beyond the battlefield, you'll need to make important decisions as the boss of your clan, making calls that will affect your clans and develop its leader.

Gears of War 5

September 10 | The Coalition | Link | Shooter
The cast of Gears of War: “The Next Generation” returns, this time with a story focused on Gears of War 4’s Kait. There's a new "Escape" co-op mode too that looks like a different, more objective focused horde mode. Here's everything we know.

Borderlands 3

September 13 | Gearbox | Link | FPS
Borderlands is baaaack, and it still looks a whole lot like Borderlands. That's okay—give the people what they want. We've got four new vault hunters, loads of returning characters, more than a billion guns, and a whole lot of lootin' and shootin' to do. The villains this time around are the clearly evil-looking Calypso twins, Claptrap's back (sorry) and you'll be journeying to multiple planets, not just around Pandora. You can read a ton about Borderlands 3 here in our comprehensive guide. By the way, it's exclusive to the Epic Games Store for six months.

Code Vein

September 27 | Bandai Namco | Link | Action RPG
“Anime Dark Souls” is Code Vein’s pigeonhole. You fight huge demons with even bigger swords in an crumbling, interconnected world. There’s a vampiric undertone too, and the game invites you to “give into the bloodlust fully and risk becoming one of the Lost, fiendish ghouls devoid of any remaining humanity.” Yes, please. 

FIFA 20

September 27 | EA | Link | Sports
The next entry in the ever-present football/soccer franchise looks like it’ll be focused more on micro-skills (like 1v1 dribbling) and a new mode that reminds us of FIFA Street.

Greedfall

September | Spiders | Link | RPG
Spiders’ RPGs are typically rough, but the studio is nothing if not a bit experimental, and is back again with a new roleplaying outing. Greedfall takes aim at European colonialism, set on an island that’s been invaded by colonists, adventurers and treasure hunters who are apparently getting on the nerves of the indigenous peoples and their supernatural protectors.

Buildings Have Feelings Too

Summer | Blackstaff Games | Link | “City Sim”
I’ll admit, I’ve spent far too much time in city simulators trashing entire districts for something new, and yeah, it can hurt. Buildings Have Feelings Too aims to twist that knife by turning buildings into living, talking, feeling-having things. While buildings slowly evolve from Victorian to modern, you’ll do typical city sim things, just with a bit more...personal investment.

2019's biggest new PC games

Borderlands 3

September 13 | Gearbox | Link | FPS
Borderlands is baaaack, and it still looks a whole lot like Borderlands. That's okay—give the people what they want. We've got four new vault hunters, loads of returning characters, more than a billion guns, and a whole lot of lootin' and shootin' to do. The villains this time around are the clearly evil-looking Calypso twins, Claptrap's back (sorry) and you'll be journeying to multiple planets, not just around Pandora. You can read a ton about Borderlands 3 here in our comprehensive guide. By the way, it's exclusive to the Epic Games Store for six months.

Doom Eternal

November 22 | id Software | Link | FPS
Doom Eternal brings hell to Earth, a nice change of setting from 2016's excellent reboot. Expect to fight twice as many demons in this instalment, using a brutal upgraded armoury. This includes a new version of the Super Shotgun, which features a grapple-friendly 'meat hook' on the end, and hopefully a ton more ludicrous weapon mods. 

The Outer Worlds

October 25, 2019 | Obsidian Entertainment | Link | RPG
With original Fallout designers on-board, The Outer Worlds looks like a cross between Fallout and Firefly, taking us to a funny and bright-looking sci-fi universe. For Fallout fans who didn't love 76, this should scratch that New Vegas itch. Wes saw it in action recently—here's what he thought of Obsidian's latest. Also, you may want to know that it's a one-year exclusive to the Epic Games Store (but also on the Windows Store, just no Steam).

Halo Master Chief Collection

TBA | 343 Industries | Link | Shooter
Despite a disastrous launch, the Master Chief Collection slowly became a definitive gathering of Halo games, made playable on newer hardware. And it's finally coming to PC. 343 Industries says it’s all coming in stages, with Reach, then Halo 1, and chronologically on from there with community input being taken into consideration.

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries

December 10 | Piranha Games | Link | Action
If you, like us, have been waiting 17 years for a new singleplayer MechWarrior campaign, this will be a huge deal in 2019. MechWarrior 5 will let you explore and liberate apparently hundreds of planets from enemy strongholds, fully customising your mech along the way. 

Hollow Knight: Silksong

TBA | Team Cherry | Link | Metroidvania
What started as DLC for Hollow Knight, starring Hornet as a playable character, apparently could not be contained. It's become a full game, a sequel to Hollow Knight, with a new setting, 150+ new enemies, a quest system, and doubtless much more. Whereas Hollow Knight was about descending deeper into the depths of Hallownest, this game will see Hornet climbing through a new kingdom to reach a peak. Team Cherry haven't mentioned a release date, but seem to be well into the game from what they've shown.
