It’s award season here at Twinfinite! We’ve handed out all our awards for 2019 and now it’s time to look forward to the most anticipated games of 2020. Voted on by our editors, these are the games that our team are the most excited about as we approach what is shaping up to be a huge year for gaming.
Let’s start with some honorable mentions, followed by our two runners-up, and of course, our most anticipated game.
Most Anticipated Games of 2020
Honorable Mention: Doom Eternal
Deputy Guides Editor Tom Hopkins: Initially supposed to come at the tail end of 2019’s busy fall release period, Doom Eternal will finally launch in March 2020.
While it’ll likely follow the demon slaying example set by 2016 reboot, it’s very difficult to turn your nose up at that idea if it matches its predecessor’s quality.
There are new features that’ll make the action even more breathless though. You’ll have to get used to new weapon types, learn how to take down a variety of new enemies, and keep an eye out for the new lives system.
Rather than spawning at checkpoints, you restart from where you died if you have lives remaining, keeping the action flowing and ensuring that you’re never away from demon slaying for too long.
Just as Doom has always been, Eternal is all about running face first through hordes of demons, chaining brutal kills and finding more bombastic guns.
From our time with it in previews, it’s clear that Doom will feel as good as ever, which is what makes the series so great. We can’t wait to get our hands on the full thing next year.
