PS4 Games 2019 List: Upcoming PlayStation Roster Is Seriously Impressive

What will be the God of War or Red Dead Redemption 2 of 2019? There's so many games coming to the PS4 in 2019 it can be a little overwhelming. But here's our guide to what looks best in the new year.

PS4 Games 2019 List

Resident Evil 2 Remake

Release Date: January 25

Capcom is awesome at making old Resident Evil games new again, as any who played the GameCube remake of the original can attest. Now they're doing it with Resident Evil 2, maybe the series' survival-horror apex, until Resident Evil 4 reinvented RE as more of an action-focused game.

Kingdom Hearts 3

Release Date: January 29

There's been a lot of Kingdom Hearts games released since 2005's Kingdom Hearts II, but this sequel will finally, finally conclude Sora's adventure, wrapping the "Dark Seeker Saga." (Watch out for spoilers online, a few early copies of the game are already loose in the wild!)

Metro Exodus

Release Date: February 15

Time to get out of the Moscow subway tunnels and up onto the irradiated surface, in the third installment of this post-apocalyptic shooter series. Metro Exodus looks like almost as big a jump over its predecessor, Metro: Last Light as the leap from The Witcher 2 to The Witcher 3, easily making Exodus one of the most hotly anticipated shooters of the year.

Far Cry New Dawn

Release Date: February 15

Yeah, it's basically a post-apocalyptic reskin of Far Cry 5, but so was Far Cry Primal, and that had some interesting changes from Far Cry 4. Far Cry may be painfully iterative , with only gradual growth between games, but I'm still a sucker for its particular brand of chaos.

Jump Force

Release Date: February 15

Like Super Smash Bros. for anime, Jump Force will let you pit Dragon Ball Z, One Piece and Bleach characters against each other.

Anthem

Release Date: February 26

Can BioWare top Destiny and make up for Mass Effect Andromeda? Anthem looks like a strong attempt. Who else can't wait to get into one of those Javelin mech suits?

The Sinking City

Release Date: March 21

Despite the overwhelming cultural ubiquity of Lovecraftian monsters, video games capturing the mood of H.P. Lovecraft's work are surprisingly rare. The Sinking City looks to change that, with an open-world detective game adventure that looks ripped straight from the Cthulhu mythos.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Release Date: March 22

A new game from designer Hidetaka Miyazaki, creator of the Dark Souls and Bloodborne series, is always a major event. Doubly so when it stars a one-armed samurai.

Mortal Kombat 11

Release Date: April 23

It's Mortal Kombat. And it's bloodier than ever. Done.

Days Gone (PS4 Exclusive)

Release Date: April 26

Raise your hand if your sick of post-apocalyptic zombie games? Well, too bad, because Days Gone looks amazing. The PS4 exclusive specializes in giant hordes and interactive environments. If anything can revive our love for the shuffling undead cannibals, it's this.

Rage 2

Release Date: May 14

Colorful and insane, Rage 2 looks like a tie-dyed Mad Max. While the first Rage didn't make a huge splash, this open-world shooter looks like the best possible combination of Borderlands, Just Cause and Doom.

Shenmue 3

Release Date: August 27

Shenmue II was released all the way back in 2001 for the Dreamcast, so this sequel has been a long time coming. Remasters of Shenmue 1 and 2 are available now on PS4.

Insurgency: Sandstorm

Release Date: first half of 2019

Insurgency: Sandstorm is already out on PC and is shaping up to be one of the big tactical shooters of 2019.

Judgment (PS4 Exclusive)

Release Date: Summer 2019

We love Yakuza, and this upcoming spin-off looks like a fascinating new spin on the series. Starring Japanese actor Takuya Kimura as a private detective, Judgment gets away from the rival crime families while sticking to familiar Tokyo locales, instead putting you on the track of a serial killer.

The Outer Worlds

Release Date: 2019

A new action RPG from the designers of Fallout ? Yes, please.

Fantasy Strike

Release Date: 2019

This new fighting game, already out on Steam, was designed by Street Fighter balance expert David Sirlin. It may not be as flashy as some of the year's bigger fighting game debuts, but Fantasy Strike looks like a strategic and expertly crafted game.

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey

Release Date: 2019

Sure, there's a glut of survival games, but who can resist the opportunity to start from the beginning of human evolution? Now's your chance to recreate Quest for Fire.

Nioh 2

Release Date: 2019

If you slept on Team Ninja's Nioh, then 2019 is offering you another chance to bludgeon yourself against their masochistic Souls -like franchise.

Psychonauts 2

Release Date: 2019

A sequel to the 2005 platformer will put players back in Raz's psychic shoes, but something is wrong at Psychonaut Headquarters…

Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Release Date: 2019

This time, instead of B.J. Blazkowicz, you'll be killing Nazis as his twin daughters. This latest entry in the Wolfenstein series will focus on co-op combat.

Skull & Bones

Release Date: 2019

What if Ubisoft just refined all the awesome naval combat from Assassin's Creed: Black Flag? Well, you'd have Skull & Bones.
