New PC Games | top 10 games Still To Come In 2020 full update

At the end of 2019, we picked our most anticipated new PC games for 2020.

And given that we’re about halfway through the year now, we thought it best to update you, the lovely Rock Paper Shotgun viewer, on the new delights, coming to PC in thecoming months.


Rather than double-dip on Cyberpunk 2077 and the like – you can hear our thoughts on that in the original video – we’ve picked20 new PC games that we’re banking on being stand-outs in 2020.

If we miss your favorite, leave a comment below. And, while you’re here, subscribe and ring the bell so you’ll be among the first to see all our videos that cover these games.

Without any further ado, let’s have a look at what's launching in the second half of this year!

01 - Death Stranding

The Marmite-man of video New PC games, Hideo Kojima, returns to PC this year with Death Stranding.

When the game hit PlayStation 4 it dazzled and confused in equal measure, but there’s no disputing the fact that the delivery driver simulator is something worth talking about.

Starring yer man off The Walking Dead hand grenades that are crafted using piss and shit, the Kojima Productions’ debut sees you carrying cargo across America to heal a divided nation.

A nation I hope is in when I ring the doorbell because I can’t be arsed going back to the depot with this load.

While his games aren’t for everyone, they're memorable and this is no exception; it’s asynchronous multiplayer that urges you to roll up your sleeves and help restore this world to greatness is a particular highlight.

Plus, it’s dead pretty, in fairness.

02 - Horizon Zero Dawn

Speaking of former PS4 exclusives, Guerrilla Games brings its action-RPG Horizon Zero Dawn to PC games, this summer.

As protagonist Aloy, your goal is to save the world from the corrupted machines that roam the land, whilst also learning about who exactly you are. Ooooh, intrigue.

Granted, Horizon’s side-quests are a tad same, and its secondaries a smidge dull, but the main arc is compelling from beginning to end.

And destroying robot crocodiles and jaguars with your array of weapons is a real thrill because it’s all about the approach.

You need to assess the weaknesses of what’sin front of you before you attack or giant robot crab will absolutely do you.

While it was gorgeous on Sony’s console three years ago, I’m really looking forward to seeing how this looks when it comes to PC.

03 - Mortal Shell : new PC games

There’s no questioning Miyazaki’s influence on Mortal Shell. But plonking this game on the ever-growingSoulslike pile and walking away would be doing it a massive disservice.

While it has plenty of the heavy combat seen FromSoftware’s series, Mortal Shell is also reminiscent of Mega Man.

You don’t get powers off the big bad you kill, but you can acquire the skills of fallen warriors that you come across the new pc game.

All you have to do is wear their skin. Like a sort of heroic Leatherface.

It looks unforgiving, sick, twisted, and we can't wait to get our hands on it.

04 - Ghostrunner new pc games

Like a mix between Mirror’s Edge, Titanfalland Hotline Miami, Ghostrunner sees you assume the role of a Frank Jaeger-like cyber ninja in a world of one-hit kills and bullet time dodges.

Like Dredd or The Raid, you have to climb a tower full of enemies in order to get to the bottom of whatever it is you’re getting to the bottom of.

The developers told us last year to expect to get mixed up with new mechanics on the climb to the top, throwing in new gadgets along the way.

Honestly, this one is mostly being sold at the exhilarating pace of its play, but if the story can deliver, then Ghost Runner could turn out to be a really special game.

You can get a taste of what to expect via the demo that’s available on Steam right now.

05 - Kerbal Space Program 2

The beloved space flight simulation new pc game, Kerbal Space Program, is getting a sequel.

If you found the first one impenetrable, but you'd still like to have a go, rest easy in the knowledge that the tutorial is said to be a big improvement on the original game.

Don’t fret, experienced explorers, KSP doesn't just cater to novices: this time around you’ll be able to build entire colonies, go beyond the Kerbal System thanks to interstellar travel, and build rockets with your friends in multiplayer.

I don’t know about you, but I personally can't wait to blame my friends for my shoddy building skills.

06 - Little Nightmares 2

Expect a fresh batch of meaty horrors in LittleNightmares 2.

While I wouldn’t call its predecessor scary, it was unsettling; its imagery burrowed its way into your brain like a menacing little vole.

We haven’t seen much of the puzzle-platformer past this trailer, but we do know windbreaker-enthusiast Six will be joined by a little boy named Mono has a fondness for whacking folks over the head with a ladle.

Fans shouldn’t be worried about a combat focus, though: developer Tarsier Studios told our friends at Euro gamer that it’s more about giving players the option to tackle situations in different ways.

You can’t mow down baddies with an AK, basically. Shame. Because I don’t like the look of that teacher.

07 - Chivalry 2

Chivalry 2 is the sequelae of sequels. Chivalry: Medieval Warfare had you get up in the faces of your adversaries; Chivalry 2 allows you to perform drive-bys on horseback.

The originally featured fights of up to 32 players; Chivalry 2’s battlefields will be populated by 64.

The first new pc game brought sword fighting to first-person multiplayer; do I need to mention the thing about horses again?

Torn Banner Studios’ upcoming effort looks like a refinement of the limb-chopping slapstick the fun of eight years ago, and there’s very little wrong with that.

The big question is how it will hold up againstMordhau - Chivalry is a prettier game, for sure, but we need to go hands-on and start chopping hands off to discover the nuanced differences.

08 - Little Hope

I anticipate some dismemberment in LittleHope, too. Fewer laughs, though.

The second of eight planned entries in developerSupermassive’s Dark Pictures Anthology, Little Hope sees you control five different teenagers that have found themselves trapped in a ghost town.

Like 2019’s Man of Medan, you choose dialogue options for your the quintet that will impact the tale in both positive and negative ways.

The main aim: get out alive with all teen contact.

Last year’s new pc games failed to live up to expectations the studio set with 2015’s wonderfully schlocky Until Dawn, but my fingers are crossed.

I’m hoping for great things… I’m so sorry.

09 - Baldur’s Gate 3

Fans have been waiting 20 long years for a sequel to Shadows of Amn.

And, thankfully, they won’t have to wait much longer as Baldur’s Gate 3 enters early access on PC at some point this year.

While the combat system ditches real-time with a pause for a turn-based strategy with more than a hint of Larian Studios’ Divinity: Original Sin 2, it folds in the Dungeons and Dragons fifth edition rulebook in some really fun ways, with some great-looking stealth, play promising to finally do rogues justice.

I could drone on about character customization, death, companions, and everything in between, but you’re better off checking out our Matthew's Extensive preview coverage of the game right here on Rock Paper Shotgun.

The boy’s gone deep on the Dungeons & DragonsCRPG, so is sure to give his post read.

10 - Psychonauts2

On the topic of anticipated sequels, Psychonauts2 is also slated to launch later this year.

Announced during the 2015 Keighleys - sorry*Game Awards* - Double Fine’s third-person platformer sees protagonist Raz return and now he’s a full-blown Psychonaut!

The boyhood dream has come true.

well, sort of. The psychic spy the organization he’s wanted to join since he was lad is in a spot of bother and it's up to him to save it.

As well as classic psi-abilities, Raz gained new powers to battle demons in the minds of a whole host of new characters.

Will anything rival the weirdness of the originals dreaded Meat Circus? 

Fleshy big top or not, Psychonauts 2 has a lot to live up to, but from what we’ve seen so far, it's shaping up nicely.
