War has been a definitive part of human history and it’s no surprise that the genre exploded ever since the gaming industry gained traction in the late 20th century. We can see the influence of battles and conflict in the modern human history being portrayed in video games even when they used to be simple text adventures. However, the fascination with war has always been a driving point and as soon as we saw the graphics develop, companies began releasing games based on battles and actual historical depiction of games across all genres. It has singlehandedly influenced a variety of genres such as FPS, survival and strategy without which these genres will just be the skeleton without the meat. Without further ado, here is the list of most anticipated new war games coming out in 2019, 2020 — with their release dates — that you can play on PS4, Xbox, PC, Online, iPhone or Andriod. We can only hope that these latest war games are as good as some of the recent ones.
14. Soldier’s Arena (TBA)
Soldier’s Arena is a multiplayer real-time tactics game being developed by ‘Best Way’ and will be published by ‘Best Way Soft’, the publishing front for the same company. The game is set in World War II and players are given the choice of three factions, each having its own identity and perks. Players will have a high control over their units, of which there are over 200, and all decisions taken by the player will adversely affect the gameplay leading to interesting choices and standoffs the players. The game will also provide the players with a dynamic environment where almost everything can be destroyed in the course of war if the players choose to do so, and this introduces variations in gameplay and tactical decisions taken by each faction. The release date is yet to be announced but the fact that the game will be free to play upon release has already generated a lot of hype among war veterans of all ages.
13. Within Whispers: The Fall (2019)
This game is a unique take on the World War genre and hence we wanted to make sure that this indie game comes to your notice. The first thing that will strike you about ‘Within Whispers: The Fall’ is the art style and direction and frankly speaking, you won’t find another game in this genre with the same style. The second thing that will strike you is the intense story and an immersive campaign that revolves around the struggles of Aska, a woman who lost her brother in The Great War. Aska is able to see the ghosts of the soldiers who lost their lives in the war, an ability that is both her only chance of reuniting with her brother and also her waking nightmare. The story-driven action adventure will be available for PC users in March, 2019.
12. Enlisted (2019)
‘Enlisted’ is a MMO co-op shooter based on World War II where the players will be set in specific scenarios handpicked from the events of the war and given objectives which they need to complete by cooperating with their team members. The players will be able to experience the battle on large scales and will also be given control of various AI units during the course of combat. Players will also unlock new characters and weapons through completing objectives that will help them in later co-op missions and grant them with various tactical choices. The battles will also take place in phases- an attempt at recreating the various stages of battle over the course of months; however, the stability of the Dagor engine is yet to be seen when it comes to replicating such environments on a massive scale. The game is presently in alpha-testing phase with a release date for PC set in 2019.
