A lot of games released last year,  God of War, which took our breath away. And then, there were was Red Dead Redemption 2, a mountain of hype and adventure. Either way, good games will keep making their way into the gaming universe. But right now, we have our eyes peeled towards some amazing games this year. 2019 will see some really graphic intensive games release. Let’s have a look at what we think will be the best games for the first quarter of 2019.

Far Cry New Dawn

If you’re a fan of open-world First person shooters, you have to know about one of Ubisoft’s most famous series, the Far Cry franchise. Far Cry New Dawn is the next spinoff in the lineup, and it focuses on more ‘Far Cry 1-3’ style gameplay than Blood dragon or Primal.

The game is set in the post-apocalyptic Hope County countryside. You’ll have to fight the Highwaymen Gang, who threaten your peaceful territory. The game has two evil twin sisters working with the gang, so you’ll face a lot of difficult scenarios. In a mad-max kind of scenario, it will bring together features from Far Cry 5, such as Warthogs and dogs. Is this Game of The Year Material? We’ll find out!

Release Date: February 22, 2019
Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC


If someone took Activision’s Destiny, and added an ‘Iron Man’ vibe to it, voila! You have Anthem, a game which does so much more than what Destiny did. It is a 4-person co-op shooter set in a huge sci-fi universe, where there are no limits to what you can do. With Javelin exosuits and a Mass Effect-style gameplay, you play as Freelancers.

Your primary motive is to destroy huge alien biomes, but that may be varied depending on how much fun you want to have with your friends. An interesting fact to note here is that Anthem is written by the guy who wrote Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2. The demo was out for February 1 to 3 on PS4, Xbox, and PC. The game itself is releasing very soon.

Devil May Cry 5

Let’s get some facts straight. There are games that make you play the sequel. Then there are games that make you wait for that sequel for almost 10 years. Capcom is finally releasing Devil May Cry 5, and yes. It’s a continuation of the Devil May Cry 4, which came out in 2008.

The fate of Dante and Nero will reveal itself to us, finally! Not a lot of games have brought such an intense combination of characters and high-speed combat to the scene, and DMC is looking to redefine it. Also, Dante, with all his cockiness and attitude is all set to beguile you. Thankfully, the game is releasing on all 3 platforms, and we won’t have to wait very long for it now!

Release Date: March 8, 2019
Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC

Metro: Exodus

Post-apocalyptic games and movies are the go-to scenarios for writers and developers, when it’s pertaining to anything related to an open-world outline. Metro: Exodus transports you to the destruction set in a modern civilization. You are a sole survivor, who has to brave harsh weather, nuclear storms and a lot more to get across Russia.

You have to search for supplies, hole through dark subway tunnels. And did we mention the gigantic mutated rats that will harass you throughout the journey? Not to miss out the massive radioactive bears that might surprise you? The game still manages to pull off a disturbingly beautiful look. On top of that, the recent controversy for releasing the game on Epic games and not steam brought discussion to the centre of the table. We sure hope that Metro: Exodus doesn’t disappoint.

Release Date: February 15, 2019
Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2

If you’ve played Tom Clancy’s The Division, you’ll probably know what we are talking about. Snow-laden streets. New York. Epidemics. Doesn’t sound like a lot of fun, but it was a huge success at the time of its launch. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a lot of end-game content, so the hype quickly died out. Now, the determined developers at Ubisoft are ready to deliver another blow with The Division 2, the second game in the franchise.

Set in Washington DC, the game follows the same timeline as its prequel. It’s placed at almost 7 months after the events of the first game. The game has a ton of new features, including eight-player-raids, and a whole redefined game engine. Tom Clancy fans will love this, that’s for sure. But are you one of them?

Release Date: March 15, 2019
Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
