Journey to the Savage Planet

  • Release date: 28 January 2020
  • Xbox One exclusive: No, also on PS4 and PC
  • Publisher: 505 Games
  • See the official site

In early 2020, a new gaming is coming from 505 Games and Typhoon Studios in the form of an "upbeat" co-op adventure game set in a wonderful alien world crammed full with weird alien creatures. Exploring, adventuring and plenty of colourful fun too.  

Commandos 2 - HD Remaster

  • Release date: 24 January 2020
  • Type: Strategy/RTS
  • Publisher: Kalypso Media Digital
  • See it on Steam

Announcements from E3 2019 include a tease of HD remake/remasterings of two iconic strategy games. Commandos 2 and Praetorians are both getting remastered later this year. Updated graphics, enhanced controls and improved performance are all on the cards, plus you get the glorious nostalgia of both games to look forward to.  

Zombie Army 4: Dead War

If you love sniping zombies and blasting them to oblivion, then we've got good news. The latest outing of the Zombie Army games series is returning soon. An all-new co-op playable campaign is almost certainly a highlight, alongside a "deep progression and customisation" system which includes everything from skills to special attacks, emotes and more. Because who doesn't like taunting brain nommers with a good emote?

Gods & Monsters

Gods & Monsters is a new game being put together by the team behind Assassin's Creed Odyssey. It's a beautiful adventure puzzle game where you'll be on a mission to save the Greek gods while solving puzzles and fighting off deadly foes along the way. 

"From the creators of Assassin's Creed Odyssey comes a storybook adventure about a forgotten hero on a quest to save the Greek gods. Embark on a journey to the Isle of the Blessed, taken over by dangerous creatures of mythology. Prove your legendary heroism by taking on their leader, Typhon, the deadliest monster in all of mythology in a face-off for the age. Explore a beautiful fantasy world where tricky puzzles, mysterious dungeons and heroic feats await. The journey will be as challenging and rewarding as the final destination. Will you be the Hero of the legends foretold?"

Watch Dogs: Legion

We're sure excited about this one. Watch Dogs has always been interesting, but things are about to get even more exciting if the latest trailer from E3 2019 is anything to go by.

Watch Dogs: Legion is going be set in London - a troubled city crushed by the grip of a totalitarian regime. Your mission is to build a resistance army to liberate the city and free the nation. 

All the usual hacking skills, stealth capabilities and combat options are open to you, plus you'll now have the ability to recruit anyone you see in the world to join your team. Everyone you see is recruitable and comes with their own backstory and skillset. Whether being a skilled fighter or just able to slip unnoticed through the streets in the guise of an elderly lady. It's certainly going to be a different game depending on who is in control. 

Doom Eternal

Doom Eternal is the long-awaited sequel to 2016's Doom reboot. This new game puts you in the fighting boots of the DOOM Slayer. Once again blowing away classic demons with insanely powerful weapons and brilliantly gory animations. Doom Eternal will also see you adventuring to never-before-seen worlds to kick demonic butt.

As well as the single-player content, we've also seen a taste of the multiplayer mode. If you've ever wanted to play as the demons then you'll soon get the chance to do so and it should be quite a chortle. 

We've had some hands-on time with Doom Eternal and like what we've seen so far. It's certainly an improvement over the last game and that's no mean feat. Now Bethesda is also teasing some of the mean Hell demons you'll be up against, including the Hunter who certainly looks like a gargantuan beast. Unfortunately, Bethesda has announced it's pushing the release of Doom Eternal back to 2020 to make sure it's properly polished before launch. 

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord

  • Release date: March 2020
  • Type: Action RPG
  • Publisher:  TaleWorlds Entertainment
  • See it on Steam

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord has been in the works for a fairly long time now and there's still no official release date, but fans of the series are still waiting with bated breath.

Occupy Mars: The Game

Cyberpunk 2077 is the next open-world RPG from the incredible CD Projekt Red - the team behind the awesomely popular Witcher 3. The new game has plenty of promise and when we saw it at E3 and shown off in the gameplay trailer, we were utterly blown away. Even more so when the new trailer dropped with an appearance by Keanu Reeves. We finally have a release date now as well. Nothing to do now but wait impatiently for it to arrive.

The Falconeer is a new fantasy RPG coming in 2020. This new game lets you take control of armed aerial mounts and engage in classic dog fights above the skies of The Great Ursee.

You'll be battling it out with fantastic enemies over land, sea and air with devastating weaponry at your disposal. 

Those Who Remain

Those Who Remain is a psychological horror where you find yourself in Dormont - a typical American town that's mysteriously turned into a ghost town. There are strange creatures are roaming the streets and danger lurking around every corner. The only way you can survive is by staying in the light. 

Dimensional portals, deadly darkness and the pressure of life-threatening decisions, should really keep you on the edge of your seat with this one.

  • Publisher: Xbox Game Studios/DONTNOD Entertainment

From the team behind the highly-acclaimed Life is Strange franchise comes another narrative-driven adventure in the form of "Tell me why".

This is also "the first playable videogame hero from a major studio and publisher who is also transgender".  Expect a rich story and engaging narrative here. 

Kerbal Space Program 2

Kerbal Space Program is back, with a sequel to the highly thought of space-flight simulation game coming some time in 2020. If you enjoyed the sandbox fun of the first game, then you're bound to found the new game a blast.

This new outing is promising a deeper city-building experience as well as improved gameplay, four single-player campaigns and more. 

Disintegration 

Disintegration is pitched as a  new sci-fi first-person shooter "unlike any other" (how many times have we heard that before?) with ground troops, hovercycles and more to control. It's said to feature a single-player campaign and PvP modes as well. We don't know much at this point, but the trailer certainly looks enticing.

Death Stranding

505 Games has announced that it's going to publish Hideo Kojima's highly-anticipated Death Stranding on PC in the summer of 2020. The game is currently a PlayStation exclusive but the news that it's coming to PC is certainly pleasing. Death Stranding sees stars Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen and others helping tell a rich Kojima story. The game centres around Sam Porter who is out to save humanity from impending annihilation as supernatural events and otherworldly creatures spring up around the world. 

Humankind

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2

The follow up to 2004's awesome Vampire: The Masquerade - The Bloodlines is coming in 2020. The previous game was an utter RPG masterpiece packed full of vampires, dark alleyways and rich characters. The new game is written by the same creative genius behind that game, so we're expecting more of the same here. 

The blurb is fairly exciting too:

"Sired in an act of vampire insurrection, your existence ignites the war for Seattle's blood trade. Enter uneasy alliances with the creatures who control the city and uncover the sprawling conspiracy which plunged Seattle into a bloody civil war between powerful vampire factions."

New trailers are coming all the time for this game, including glorious gameplay trailers from E3 and now a new one showing off RTX enhanced visuals for the game. We really can't wait for this one.

Psychonauts 2

Double Fine studios were at E3 2019 showing off gameplay footage for Psychonauts 2, alongside the annoucement that the company is joining Xbox Game Studios. 

Razputin Aquato is back for Psychonauts 2. This time around Razputin is getting stuck in with the Psychonauts and there's plenty of acrobatics to look forward to. 

"Psychonauts 2 tells the story of Razputin Aquato, a gifted acrobat with psychic powers, as he fulfills his life-long goal of becoming an international psychic super-spy. In other words, a Psychonaut. Raz joins the Psychonauts at a dangerous time: a mole has infiltrated the organization and is planning to resurrect history's most cruelly powerful psychic villains. Not knowing who to trust, Raz must dive into the history of the Psychonauts, and that of his own family, to fight the demons of their shared past."

Empire of Sin

Empire of Sin is a new strategy RPG set in the ruthless criminal underworld of 1920s Prohibition-era Chicago. This new game is a character-driven, noir-inspired game taking place in the roaring 20s.  You'll be concentrating on building your criminal empire while exploring the living and breathing city around you. Influence, power and healthy dose of bribery will be the key to survival here. Adapt to survive, out-gun and out-shoot the competition and you'll soon get ahead. 

Rainbow Six Quarantine

Straight out of E3 2019 comes what appears to be a spin-off of the Rainbow Six Siege Outbreak mode that made an appearance in 2018. This is a standalone game that's set in the near future.

A mutated alien parasite is infecting people and threatening mankind. The Rainbow Six team is on a mission to save the world - battling it out against the environment and trying to survive unpredictable missions. 

Backbone

Backbone is a quaint looking indie game with retro pixel visuals and is pitched as a "noir-inspired detective adventure". Players will take on the role of Howard Lotor, a raccoon private eye who's sniffing out clues, collecting evidence and exploring the world around him. There's something alluring about this one and we're intrigued to see how it plays out. 

Industries of Titan

  • Release date: 2020
  • Type: City builder/Strategy Sim
  • Publisher: Brace Yourself Games
  • See it on Steam

Industries of Titan is set to be a fairly interesting city building sim/strategy game that's set on Saturn's moon Titan. Lovingly crafted by the same team that brought us Crypt of the NecroDancer, this game promises to let you build a massive metropolis from scratch. 

Outriders

  • Release date: September 2020
  • Type: Co-op shooter
  • Publisher: Square Enix External Studios
  • See the official site

From the team behind Gears of War Judgement and Bulletstorm comes a brand new co-op shooter with a dark sci-fi vibe.

This game is set to be a co-op game with 1-3 players able to drop in and out of the game at any point. Info on Outriders is a tad sparse at the moment, but if the trailer alone is anything to go by, it's certainly going to be a blast. Even more so with friends. 

Roller Champions

Roller Champions is a free-to-play, team PvP sports game that's coming to PC sometime in 2020. Dash around the track, wall-skate to the sky and attempt to dunk for your team. Possession and scoring are the keys to victory in this colourful fast-paced sports game. 

"The rules are simple: take the ball, make a lap while maintaining team-possession, and score. You can go for more points by completing additional laps before attempting a goal. After each game, you gain fans, unlock sponsors, customize your character, and ultimately unlock impressive fan celebrations."

Dying Light 2 was originally announced at E3 2018, now it's been shown off again at E3 2019. Zombie games are almost over-done now, but we still love them. Now there's a 26-minute gameplay demo to whet our appetites as well. 

We also had a lot of good things to say about the original Dying Light, so we're happy to admit we're excited to see what first-person parkour fun the new outing has in store. Dying Light 2 also promises a world that changes based on your choices, so there's much more to this game than smashing zombies and surviving. The new trailer shows the fight isn't just against the brain nommers, but also factions of humans fighting it out for supremacy. We can't wait to get stuck in. 

Microsoft Flight Simulator

The next update to Microsoft's Flight Simulator series is coming in 2020. With the promise of 4K HDR visuals and everything from light aeroplanes to wide-body jets to zip about in. Flight Simulator promises players the freedom to create their own flight plan and jet off anywhere in the world, flying day and night against realistic weather conditions. 

Chivalry II

We adored the first Chivalry game. A gruesome, blood-curdling medieval battle romp that saw you chopping off heads with broad swords and cutting down your foes with gut-wrenching screams. 

Now while Mordhau is doing so well on Steam, it makes sense to see Chivalry 2 being announced. The gameplay trailer shows off all the blood-stained battlefield chaos we'd expect and gives a taste of the bloody battles to come. Chivalry 2 will be coming to Epic Store first sometime in 2020. 

Halo Infinite

  • Type: Tactical shooter
  • Publisher: VOID Interactive
  • See it on Steam

Ready or Not is set to put you in the shoes of SWAT officers with a tactical shooter that's designed to give you a realistic experience of what it's like to be on the front line of dangerous policing.

We're looking forward to getting stuck into this one. 

Total War Saga: TROY

  • Type: Simulation/strategy
  • Publisher: CREATIVE ASSEMBLY
  • See it on Steam

Sometime in 2020, the Total War Saga is set to move to the Bronze-Age with a focus on the battle between the two kingdoms of Troy and Mycenaen. The game is set to explore the incredible conflict between nations while being wrapped up in all the myth and legend that comes with it. We're expecting character-led drama and all the usual strategy, statecraft and more that you'd expect from a Total War game. 

Destroy all Humans!

Destroy All Humans! originally released in 2005 and is now getting a new faithful remake for modern gaming platforms. If you've ever wondered what it might like to be an alien with the power to terrorise and torment humankind with everything from weapons to psychic powers, then you're in for a treat.

Love Star Wars? Can't get enough of Lego? How about a new game that promises the ability to play through all nine Star Wars films in a Lego-based adventure game? 

You'll even have the ability to travel to any planet, in any order, at any time. We'll be off to visit the Wookiees for sure. 

Gamedec

Gamedec is set to be an intriguing cyberpunk RPG. Playing this one you'll be in the shoes of a private detective whose job it is to solve crimes inside virtual worlds. A game within a game? The developers say the game will adapt to your choices as you play. There is also no single solution to any situation, so plenty of choice on ways to play. 

Drift19

  • Type: Indie action
  • Publisher: PlayWay S.A.
  • See it on Steam

Drift19 is said to be "the first and only serious drifting simulator". If you're a big fan of tearing up the track sideways then this is going to be the game for you.

Ever dreamt of owning your own tank? Now you can. Well, a virtual one at least. In Tank Mechanic Simulator it'll be your job to find and recover damaged, destroyed and abandoned tanks and fix them up to give them a new lease of life. All the best World War II tanks, rebuilt by your own fair hand.

There's the promise of an open-world experience where you get to pick and choose the missions you play in a world with destructible environments that include bullet penetration and more. An interesting ballistics simulation system and enemy reaction system should make this an interesting game for sure. 

Scorn

  • Release date: TBC
  • Type: Horror adventure
  • Publisher: Ebb Software
  • See it on Steam

Scorn is an atmospheric horror adventure game in development by Ebb Software. It was originally scheduled to release in 2018, but is still yet to appear. It is inspired by the works of H.R.

Dragonhound

  • Release date: TBC
  • Type: MMO/Action RPG
  • Publisher: Nexon

  • Type: Sci-fi action adventure
  • Publisher: Nightdive Studios
  • See it on Steam

Nightdive Studios is set to remake and reboot the classic sci-fi adventure System Shock sometime in the near future. The developers are promising a new game that's true to the original while being given a refresh with modern visuals and gameplay. 

Fans of the series will be pleased to hear the original voice actor is returning too. The original game released in 1994, so this reboot is a long time coming and should certainly be an interesting one. System Shock 3 is also being developed, so we've got that to look forward to as well.

  • Release date: TBA
  • Type: FPS action-adventure
  • Publisher: DevolverDigital
  • See it on Steam

Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass is set to "reignite the classic series" by taking the old-school formula into the new era.

The promise of online multiplayer and co-op modes too should make this game a total blast to play with friends. 

Last Man Sitting

  • Release date: TBA
  • Type: Early access Battle Royale
  • Publisher: PixelPizza Games
  • See it on Steam

Last Man Sitting is probably the most ridiculous Battle Royale game you're ever likely to see. Smartly dressed sit in green office chairs armed to the teeth. Shotguns, ragdoll psychics and a slippery floor are bound to make for plenty of shenanigans and much hilarity.  

Maneater

This one really whets our appetite for mayhem and destruction. Maneater puts you in the body of a shark that's set on terrorising the coast and eating everything in its path. 

You'll be able to explore lush underwater landscapes including diving into shipwrecks, nosing about in swamps and lurking in the vast oceans. Maneater is set to be a single-player RPG - allowing you to customise and upgrade your shark, evolving as you play. Certainly, one to get your teeth stuck into. 

Starfield

Starfield was teased by Bethesda in June 2018 as the first new franchise in 25 years. But that's not the exciting part, Starfield is set to be a space-based RPG with plenty of glorious fun in the depths of space. Beyond that, we don't know much other than we're excited. 

Elder Scrolls fans have been waiting impatiently for a sequel to Skyrim for what might seem like forever. Now we finally have proof that The Elder Scrolls VI is coming at some point, we just don't know much beyond that. Exciting times lie ahead though. 

Dead Island 2

  • Release date: TBC 2019
  • Type: Survival horror action RPG
  • Publisher: Deep Silver

It's still early days, but there is some promise of a brilliant second outing for Dead Island 2 - another zombie-slaying adventure that we loved when we first played it on PC.

Weapon crafting, a bright and unusual island location and zombies in bathing costumes, this game had it all. The new trailer doesn't show much, but it certainly looks like there's going to be some of the same hilarity and good times.  

Rune II

  • Release date: TBC 2020
  • Type: Action RPG
  • Publisher: Ragnarok Game, LLC
  • See it on Steam

Rune II is a new game coming in 2020 which is inspired by the original Rune from 2000. If you've seen other Viking styled battle games on this list and got excited then Rune II is probably going to float your boat as well. 

It's set in a dangerous Norse universe during the Viking the end of days. A vicious struggle for survival is happening and you've been chosen by the gods to save Midgard. You're up against the trickster Loki and will be battling his legions either alone or with friends. 

Deathloop

  • Release date: TBC
  • Type: First-person action game
  • Publisher: Bethesda
  • See official site

Deathloop is a first-person action game from the same team behind Dishonored and Prey. And you can get a vibe from that while watching the trailer.

Ghostwire: Tokyo

  • Release date: TBC

We don't know much else about this game yet, but it certainly looks intriguing. 

Bleeding Edge 

Bleeding Edge is the next game from Ninja Theory - the amazing team behind DmC: Devil May Cry and Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. It's a fast and frantic four vs four brawler that's colourful, packed full of character and utter chaos. We can't help but see an Overwatch vibe to this game, but it certainly looks like smashing fun. If you can't wait, you can sign up for the Alpha test here.

Baldur's Gate 3

  • Release date: TBC
  • Type: Strategy RPG
  • Publisher: Larian Studios
  • See it on Steam

Baldur's Gate is a name that's almost synonymous with role-playing games. The third outing of this game is being crafted by Larian Studios, the team behind Divinity: Original Sin. We don't have a release at this point and detail is fairly sparse. The only hints come from the teaser trailer and the blurb:

"An ancient evil has returned to Baldur's Gate, intent on devouring it from the inside out. The fate of Faerun lies in your hands. Alone, you may resist. But together, you can overcome." 

Sniper Elite VR

  • Release date: Unknown
  • Type: VR shooter
  • Publisher: Rebellion

Rebellion is taking the popular Sniper Elite franchise into virtual reality with Sniper Elite VR. This new game is set to feature a new campaign in Italy, an exclusive first-person view, freedom of movement and the classic X-ray kill cam too. Should be interesting!

Elden Ring

Elden Ring is the result of a collaboration between George R. R. Martin (author of Game of Thrones) and FromSoftware (the team behind Dark Souls). Combine that knowledge with the trailer and you get an idea of a brutal and incredibly tough fantasy game coming at some point in the next few years. We'd imagine this will be punishing, beautiful and story-rich. Certainly, one to look forward to. 

Ascent: Infinite Realm

From the makers of Player Unknown's Battlegrounds comes something completely different. An MMORPG with dragons, massive airships, many, many explosions and so much more. It certainly looks incredible, but we'll have to wait and see. 

Twelve Minutes

Twelve Minutes is an "interactive thriller" where you take the role of a husband who finds himself stuck in a time loop after a romantic dinner with his wife turns into a nightmare.

Without warning, a police officer breaks into your home, accuses your wife of murder and beats you to death. When the events start all over again, you need to work out a way to change the outcome before facing another painful death. This game certainly feels like a mix of The Shining and Memento, so should make for an awesome gaming experience. 

Buildings have feelings too!

  • Release date: TBC
  • Type: Building sim
  • Publisher: Merge Games
  • See it on Steam

If you love city building sims but fancy something fresh, new and exciting then this might be it. This is an unusual sim where the buildings "can walk and talk to one another" have their own hopes and fears and feelings too.

Your job is not only to build your city but stop your buildings from dying. Bet you never thought you'd feel guilty about demolishing an old dishevelled hovel? You will now. 

Valhall

  • Release date: Coming soon
  • Type: Battle Royale
  • Publisher: Blackrose Arts
  • See it on Steam

Got a thing for Vikings? Enjoy a good Battle Royale game? Fed up with hiding in a bush waiting for a chicken dinner? Then there might be good news in the form of Valhall - a medieval third and first-person hack 'n' slash with a Battle Royale twist. The promise of "deep" melee combat and fantastic Viking battles is enough to get us excited. 

The latest trailer for Valhall shows some incredibly brutal combat and plenty of good ol' Viking fun. If you like the look of this one you can help back it on IndieGoGo.

Purple Lamp Studios and is coming at some point in the future. You'll apparently be able to play as SpongeBob himself, as well as Patrick and Sandy. There's also set to be a co-op mode and a brand new horde mode multiplayer too.

Atomic Heart

  • Release date: TBC
  • Type: FPS action-adventure
  • Publisher: Mundfish
  • See it on Steam

A quirky, gory and fairly awesome looking FPS set in an alternative universe in the heart of the Soviet Union. Players will take on the role of a special agent who has been sent a highly secret object and is desperately trying to investigate what's going on. Weird creatures, robots and a multitude of customisable weapons certainly make this one appear intriguing if nothing else. 

Assassin's Creed: Black Flag proved incredibly popular and spiked interest in pirating based-shenanigans on the high seas. Since then, we've seen Sea of Thieves and the hilarity of Blackwake but Ubisoft's Skull & Bones is making waves in the build-up to launch. Become the pirate captain you've always wanted to be and battle on the high seas on your own or with up to five other players. Grease the gangplank and ready the mainsail, this is surely going to be a glorious grog-swilling romp. 

Starbase

  • Release date: 2020
  • Type: Space-based MMO
  • Publisher: Frozenbyte
  • See it on Steam

Starbase is a new space-based MMO from Frozenbyte. It's set to feature a fully destructible and infinitely expanding universe. Which in itself sounds pretty downright awesome doesn't it? This game has a focus on building spaceships and space stations with a mix of exploration, resource gathering, crafting, trading and more. 

A fully destructible environment with in-depth physics should make things interesting as something as simple as a fast-speed crash can rip a ship apart. 

Smalland

  • Release date: Coming soon
  • Type: Action-adventure/RPG
  • Publisher: Merge Games
  • See it on Steam

What would you if you found yourself shrunk down to a minute size where trees were suddenly the size of skyscrapers and even simple blades of grass tower overhead? That's the world of Smalland and wonderful adventures await including running from packs of rates, trying to survive in a strange new world and even riding wasps as mounts. Sounds amazing. 

Out of Reach: Treasure Royale

  • Release date: Coming soon
  • Type: Massively multiplayer pirate Battle Royale
  • Publisher: PlayWay S.A.
  • See it on Steam

Always found modern Battle Royale games to be lacking in rum, swashbuckling and seafaring shenanigans? Then Out of Reach: Treasure Royale might be the one for you.

This game pits dozens of pirate crews against each other fighting across the open oceans, through jungle islands and more. Of course, being a pirate game, there'll be treasure, ship battles and plenty of rum too. 

Body of Evidence

  • Release date: Unknown
  • Type: Casual Indie
  • Publisher: Fat Dog Games
  • See it on Steam

Daft and gruesome, Body of Evidence puts you into the shoes of a dead body disposal expert. Become Winston Wolfe - hide bodies and clean up the mess before anyone finds out. A time limit and a tongue-in-cheek sense of humour should make this a superb chortle. 

Desperados III

  • Release date: Unknown
  • Type: Real-time strategy
  • Publisher: THQ Nordic
  • See it on Steam

Desperados is back with a modern real-time strategy game in a Wild West era. Playing this new Desperados game, you'll be taking control of a band of unlikely heroes struggling to survive in the new world. You'll be forced to overcome tough challenges and witness glorious frontier towns, desert canyons, Mississippi swamps, sprawling modern cities and much more. 

One character you'll be controlling is Isabelle Moreau, a master of Voodoo magic who can slip into the mind of her enemies and control their actions. This allows for all sorts of combat styles including making enemies kill each other to save you the hassle. 

Biomutant

Biomutant is an open-world action RPG that looks like a total blast. With titchy little playable characters that remind us of Rocket from Guardian's of the Galaxy and stunning graphics and gameplay, this one is surely going to be fantastic.

Biomutant, as you might have gathered from the name, will allow players to combine mutant powers, bionics and weapons to customise their characters into the ultimate hero or villain. The fate of the world is in your hands. 

The new trailer shows a harsh landscape, massive villains and hilarious combat moves. A wealth of puzzles, weaponry and adventure awaits. 

Enlisted

  • Release date: Unknown
  • Type: MMO squad-based first-person shooter
  • Publisher: Gaijin Software
  • See the official site

Enlisted is in the early stages of development currently, but looks fairly promising. Even more so if you've played the hilarious Cuisine Royale, which is based off the same engine and design. Enlisted is a World War 2 based MMO shooter with squad play at its core. The game promises to let players fight in some of the most important and famous battles of WW2 with a focus on realism and historical accuracy.

  • Type: Racing simulation
  • Publisher: Bigben Interactive

Coming in 2020 is a new off-road racing simulation where the terrain is your main rival. A realistic physics system, hardcore terrain and all manner of obstacles should make this a tough racer for sure.
