Quidditch, hell on Earth and the triumphant return of Half-Life – talk about the most anticipated games of March 2020.
Curse of the dead gods (March, 3rd)
Roguelike adventure about exploring an ancient temple filled with traps and monsters. All for the sake of untold riches, eternal youth, and unimaginable power. No one has yet managed to take possession of the artifacts that this place hides, but the hero, under your careful supervision, will surely be able to achieve his goal … or he will die under the pressure of skeletons, in a fire trap or in a battle with deadly bosses.
Broomstick league (5TH OF MARCH)
A multiplayer sim that looks suspiciously like Quidditch from the Harry Potter: characters sitting on brooms and armed with magic wands scamper around the arena and try to throw the ball into the goal. The game, obviously, was not made under license – you won’t meet Dumbledore here, but the sources of inspiration are read at a glance. And perhaps the Broomstick League will be a success with Harry Potter fans who will be happy to visit the magical universe since Warner Bros. not moving in that direction.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps (March 11th)
The continuation of the incredibly beautiful and very complex platform game Ori and the Blind Forest, which will become even more beautiful and even more difficult. The developers promise to confront the main character with even more tests and challenges, as well as improve the character’s leveling system and combat component. The game will be free for the owners of the Xbox Game Pass.
My Hero One’s Justice 2 (March 13)
Fighting game in the universe of My Heroic Academy with characters familiar to fans of the original anime series. Players will enjoy exciting fights in several modes, and in between battles they will be able to customize fighters and learn killer combos in the training room.
Nioh 2 (March 13)
Role-playing action dedicated to mystical medieval Japan. The main character is a half-blood in whose veins human and youkai blood flow. He will have to challenge influential leaders, and during this adventure – to fight with numerous opponents, including people and demons. While the game has been announced only for the PS4, but later after the release, it may also visit the PC, as it was with the first game in the series.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons (20th of March)
A new game from the series Animal Crossing, in which players are invited to go to a remote island where you can relax from the bustle of the city – as well as build a settlement, look after the farm, chat with interesting characters and have fun with grotesque creatures. Up to eight players can participate in the creation of a paradise, and the project makes it possible for the four people to play on the same console simultaneously.
Doom eternal (20th of March)
One of March’s most anticipated releases is the continuation of the successful return of the DOOM series, which made a triumphant debut in 2016. DOOM Eternal will continue the storyline begun in the previous game: despite the efforts of the Doom Guy, demons from the underworld broke out of Mars and attacked the Earth.
Half-Life: Alyx (March 23)
With this release, Valve is preparing to return to the “big games production.” Unfortunately, not everyone can enjoy the adventures of Alyx Vance: the game is intended only for virtual reality devices. However, the fact that the new Half-Life is being prepared for the release cannot but rejoice – perhaps this game will push Valve to develop a full-fledged third part of the series.
Bleeding edge (March 24)
Massively multiplayer action game from Ninja Theory, creators of Enslaved, DmC: Devil May Cry and Hellblade. While the bulk of the team is working on the Hellblade’s sequel, a small group is working on an online game dedicated to battles of very strange characters with unique abilities. Game is similar in look and feels to Quake Champions.
Iron danger (March 25)
Tactical RPG with unusual mechanics of time rewinding, which, in fact, is a variation of the Quicksave-Quickload system. Time rewind turns every battle into a puzzle, the interactive environment and a wide selection of heroes’ abilities open up space for using different tactics.
One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 (March 27th)
Anime action that sends players to the adventures of their favorite characters. Traditionally for the series, one should expect a riot of effects, spectacular attacks, a slightly absurd story, and unusual characters. Nevertheless, fans of the original anime project will surely like it.
Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord (March 31)
The long-awaited continuation of the sandbox with elements of role-playing game and strategy comes out in early access. Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is a medieval setting game where gamers have to conquer the fictional kingdom of Calradia in any of the available ways: to become a brave warrior, cunning merchant or arrogant lord, lead troops into battle, storm the fortresses and rob villages, fight alone or as part of a whole army.
Division 2: Warlords of New York (March 3 – PC, PS4, XBO) – a large-scale expansion pack for Division 2, which will return players to New York.
THE LONGING (March 5 – RS) – A leisurely quest about a servant who is waiting for the awakening of the underground king.
Yes, Your Grace (March 6 – PC, PS4, XBO, Switch) – a simulator of the ruler of the medieval kingdom, whose life is fraught with many problems, ranging from the empty treasury and ending with weaving enemies.
Dreadlands (March 10 – RS) – a turn-based strategy in a post-apocalyptic setting in which players are waiting for exciting battles in the spirit of XCOM (using the standard two-move formula).
Half Past Fate (March 12 – PC, PS4, XBO) is a pixel-based romantic adventure with time jumps and a touching story about the fate of the inhabitants of the modern world.
Bless Unleashed (March 12 – XBO) – Exclusive to the Xbox One MMORPG, a re-release of the failed Bless Online. However, here the developers promise not to make mistakes that previously led to the failure of the original game.
Blood of Steel (March 13 – RS) – MOBA, in which famous generals from different countries and periods of world history take part in the battles, leading legions of soldiers.
MLB The Show 20 (March 17 – PS4) is a baseball simulator, exclusive to PS4.
Panzer Corps 2 (March 19 – RS) is a wargame in the setting of the Second World War, with deep gameplay, a huge amount of content, support for mods and online modes.
TT Isle of Man Ride on the Edge 2 (March 19 – PC, PS4, XBO, Switch) – motorcycle racing with a large selection of bikes, tracks, pilots and modes.
Starport Delta (March 28 – RS) is a strategy for building a space station where you need to allocate resources, quickly fix problems and meet the needs of residents.
Persona 5 Royal (March 31 – PS4) – the complete edition of the role-playing game Persona 5 for PS4, including the content of the main game and all previously released add-ons and DLCs.
