Population: One

\n
    \n
  • Release date: 2019
  • \n
  • Platform: Crossplay between Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows MR
  • \n
\n

If you aren't sick of Battle Royale mania yet, you should be excited by the prospect of this growing genre finally coming to VR.

\n

Yep, you'll be falling from the battle bus, building structures, plundering empty buildings, and struggling to survive to the #1 spot as the circle shrinks all in glorious virtual reality. 

\n

If this catches on, I'd expect to see Fortnite add on a VR mode next year as well!

Ghost Giant

\n
    \n
  • Release date: Unknown (maybe 2019?)
  • \n
  • Platform: PSVR
  • \n
\n

VR is tailor-made for this kind of experience, where you are just a pair of giant disembodied hands looking down on a virtual world and deciding how you are going to interact with it.

\n

This seems like an excellent attempt to embrace the standard tropes of virtual reality games and expand on them, rather than try to hide them. With any luck, Ghost Giant will show all the other games how it's meant to be done.

Trover Saves the Universe 

\n
    \n
  • Release date: 2019
  • \n
  • Platform: PSVR, with PC likely down the line
  • \n
\n

Speaking of over the top, hoo boy, Trover Saves The Universe is going to strain the patience of anyone not fully onboard with the Interdimensional Cable episodes of Rick And Morty.

\n

This is going to be pure, grade-A, weapons-grade nutso that will put all other attempts at bizarre gaming to shame by several orders of magnitude.

\n

I still can't decide if this will be the best thing ever or if I'll be rolling my eyes and pulling my own hair out, but either way expect this game to make a splash.

Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot 

\n
    \n
  • Release date: Expected sometime 2019
  • \n
  • Platform: PC, PSVR
  • \n
\n

VR has pretty consistently shown an affinity for spin offs offering new ways to experience a well known franchise.

\n

With Cyberpilot, we'll get to saddle up in giant mechanical doggos to light Nazis on fire. What's not to love?

\n

I do have to wonder how much of the over-the-top grisly imagery from Wolfenstein 2 will make it over in the translation, as that might become a bit much to handle in VR mode.

Gadgeteer 

\n
    \n
  • Release date: Early 2019
  • \n
  • Platform: PC
  • \n
\n

While plenty of VR games these days are become ever more ambitious and working in fully movement, there are still plenty of great games where you remain more stationary and just interact with the environment.

\n

That's what's on display with Gagdeteer (previously going by the code name Ruberg), which has you setting up and knocking down intricate chain reaction puzzles. I would expect this one to be a party hit like Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes.

Stormland 

\n
    \n
  • Release date: Unknown 2019
  • \n
  • Platform: Oculus Rift exclusive
  • \n
\n

This is probably the one big VR release of 2019 that's getting the most buzz right now and its being developed by Insomniac Games and Oculus Studios.

\n

Some of VR's biggest triumphs so far are games that change your perspective and offer a different kind of experience, and that's what it seems like we'll get as a broken down robot (the Short Circuit comparisons are coming strong and fast).

\n

The combat here looks like a more fully realized version of Blasters Of The Universe, and that's a very good thing, and the visuals will make you think of Horizon: Zero Dawn, but minus the humans.

Ace Combat 7 

\n
    \n
  • Release date: January 18, 2018
  • \n
  • Platform: PSVR
  • \n
\n

Surprisingly, the number of air combat simulations in VR are pretty sparse on the PlayStation 4 right now. There's that super short Call Of Duty Jackal entry, and not a whole lot else.

\n

Rather than a full VR game, Ace Combat 7 will include a series of VR-specific missions, but what we've seen so far looks very slick. Hopefully this is just the start of the virtual reality dog fights headed to Sony's flagship console.

Age Of Wushu 2 

\n
    \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
  • Platform: PC
  • \n
\n

This upcoming Chinese action MMO will include something you haven't seen in the massively multiplayer realm before.... a VR element for exploration (although sadly not for combat).

\n

There's not a ton of info yet on exactly how the VR sections will work and how you will switch back to non-VR during combat, but you can officially color me intrigued.

\n

Seeing virtual reality aspects worked into more games will go a long way towards see VR get adopted on a wider scale.

The Mage's Tale 

\n
    \n
  • Release date: Very up in the air
  • \n
  • Platform: PSVR (already out on PC)
  • \n
\n

This full VR RPG set between The Bard's Tale 3 and 4 is actually already out now on Steam, but it was actively in development for a PSVR port in early 2019.

\n

Sadly, the fate of this one is now very up in the air sadly, with InXile just being bought out by Microsoft.

\n

We can't imagine they'll be keen on letting their new acquisition release a game on a rival console, but there's been no official word yet on whether this is actually cancelled or not, since it had already been announced and was deep in development.

Borderlands 2 VR

\n
    \n
  • Release date: December 14th, 2018
  • \n
  • Platform: PSVR
  • \n
\n

OK, OK, we're cheating even more with Borderlands 2 VR! This one comes out December 14th, a half month before its officially 2019, but that's not going to stop us from putting it here.

\n

This is easily my own most anticipated title as it provides another opportunity to face off against awful dad Handsome Jack and interact with the amazingly psychotic Tiny Tina yet again.

\n

Who else absolutely cannot wait to joy puke your face off in virtual reality? Of course, with this version of the game arriving soon, it leads to a more important question... where the hell is Borderlands 3 already?

Star Child 

\n
    \n
  • Release date: December 31st, 2018
  • \n
  • Platform: PSVR
  • \n
\n

Yes, Star Child does in fact arrive one single day before it officially becomes 2019, but you'll forgive us, right?

\n

This looks like the new unexpected VR game that's going to provide a totally different experience than you'd expect, much like Moss did for PSVR at the beginning of the year.

\n

Based on the trailer, it seems like we're in for some crazy platforming and giant boss-dodging action in a unique alien landscape.

Any given trailer for a VR title these days still gets hit with the running gag about how 5 people will love the game when it releases, but the notion of VR remaining firmly underground is about to be strongly challenged in 2019.

\n

A whole lotta killer games have already arrived since our article earlier in the year looking at whether PSVR in particular is worth investing in at this point.

\n

Between horror games like The Persistence, shooters like Firewall Zero Hour, and platformers like Astro Bot: Rescue Mission, there's just no reason not to jump into the VR fray anymore.

\n

There's plenty more slated to land in the next month before the year's over as well, such as Arca's Path coming soon and two Persona dancing games arriving in early December.

\n

That's just the beginning though, as 2019 is unquestionably going to be the year VR breaks out into the mainstream. In the slides ahead we round up the 11 most anticipated tiles in every possible genre!

\n

While many of the upcoming games in our top 11 picks will be available for the PSVR, we've broadened out our search across the entire VR lineup, including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality.

Lost Ark

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Smilegate
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

Lost Ark is another victim of insane hype and long delays. The game footage of this Action MMORPG looked so good that you couldn't wait to play it, but that was the problem. You couldn't! Well, until now, as Smilegate finally launches an open beta test at the end of 2018 with a possible release of Lost Ark in 2019.

\n

The Korean game combines all the best aspects of the MMORPG genre and provides a smooth experience of interwoven cutscenes and action sequences. The graphics looks amazing even if it utilizes Unreal Ungine 3, which means only good things for players who don't have high-end PCs.

\n

So let's keep our fingers crossed for Smilegate to finally give us Lost Ark next year in all its glory.

Project TL

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Team TL
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

Lineage 3 or Lineage Eternal has been in development for many years. Last year the developer changed the title of the game to Project TL, and plans to start beta testing at the end of 2018.

\n

This will be the first time, when players all over the world will be able to finally play the game, which was hyped like no other MMO before. For those who are not in the know, Project TL is an isometric Action MMORPG with orcs, elves, and wizards.

\n

The developer promises a deep combat system with realistic physics, and an interactive world, in which every object will have an impact on your gameplay. In addition, it will have a dynamic weather system, landscape changes and destructible environments.

Age Of Wushu 2

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Snail
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

Here is one more martial arts MMORPG from China, this time it's a sequel to an already established Age of Wushu franchise. The new game will utilize Unreal Engine 4 and will even have the VR mode for exploration. Unfortunately, players will have to take their VR headsets off during combat.

\n

The Chinese developer also introduced a new PvP system, where the typical elements such as health and power gauges will be completely absent. Players will have to figure out the state of their opponents by their behavior during the combat.

\n

This definitely sounds interesting and may introduce a whole new sub-genre of MMO fighting games.

Justice

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Netease
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

If you've been following the development of another martial arts MMO, titled Revelation, then you probably heard about Justice already. It's a new MMORPG from the same developer, which is focused on two factions that fight each other time from time.

\n

PvE system focuses on boss battles and world exploration, while PvP offers no safe zones, meaning that battles may occur anywhere in the game. However, the developer has confirmed that there will be special PvP arenas present in the game as well.

There will be seven classes in total, where each class will have its own special combos and storyline.

Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Visionary Realms
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen is a spiritual successor to such MMORPGs like EverQuest and Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. It is set in an open fantasy world of Terminus inhabited by all sorts of heroes, deities and enemies.

\n

The story of Pantheon will unfold itself to a player gradually as he or she progresses through the world. The developer says that the game will be more of a sandbox-style RPG rather than your typical fetch-quest RPG. But there will be quests nonetheless, although it will not be that easy to get them in the first place.

\n

It looks like the game will have a rather high level of difficulty, deep lore, and interesting gameplay mechanics.

Kingdom Under Fire II

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Blueside
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC, PS4
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

KUF2 is probably one of the most delayed MMO projects in the history of gaming. It was first announced in 2008 and since then the developer kept pushing the release date each year. Since April 2018 KUF2 has been in the open beta stage, which may hint on the actual release date sometime in 2019.

\n

The game is mainly focused on massive battles that will take place on different locations and servers. Each such location will be able to host only a few players at once, but each player will have access to a huge army, which he or she will have to control throughout the entire battle.

Camelot Unchained

\n
    \n
  • Developer: City State Entertainment
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

Camelot Unchained is a sequel to the highly-praised MMORPG from 2002 Dark Age of Camelot. This time the conflict will take place between the Irish Celts led by King Arthur on one side, the Vikings on the other, and the tribe of Nuada on the third front.

\n

Players should expect a lot of manual labor, as they will have to create their own weapons and armor from scratch. The crafting system must be incredible in Camelot Unchained, since you will not be able to buy anything from the NPCs.

\n

Each kingdom will have its own classes with a vast number of customization tools. The proprietary Unchained engine will allow for massive battles to take place on one server, but there is no official info on how many players will be able to take part in them yet.

Dual Universe

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Novaquark
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

Dual Universe offers gamers the opportunity to travel through the universe and visit any planets they want with no restrictions whatsoever. From the story point of view, humanity was forced to explore other planets after the apocalyptic event that destroyed the entire Solar System.

\n

As you already guessed, colonizing new planets is the main goal of Dual Universe. As usual, the players will have to learn new skills and abilities, but since Dual Universe is a sandbox MMO, you can modify your world and skill tree as much as you want.

New World

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Amazon Game Studios
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

New World is set in the late 17th century North America, a period during the colonization of the continent. The players will have a complete freedom of choice. They will decide how they want to build their cities and which enemies they want to destroy.

\n

But this is not a realistic historical MMO as it will involve fantastic creatures that roam the valleys and forests of New World. Some of them will be so powerful that players will have to cooperate in order to protect themselves and their settlements.

\n

The game will also feature dynamic season and weather systems, and of course, day and night cycles. The developer promises that New World will be able to host up to 500 players at once.

  • Developer: Automaton

  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

Here is a brand new project by Automaton Studios, which developed a cooperative horro game Deceit. Mavericks is targeted specifically at gamers who love playing Battle Royale games, such as Playerunknown's Battlegrounds.

\n

But this time the British developer offers something slightly different. Mavericks will have a permanent world for 1000 players, which will serve as a PvP ground for 400 people. Reportedly, the in-game world will have 12 square kilometers, which is more than enough for any Battle Royale game.

\n

Additionally, Mavericks: Proving Grounds will have plenty of destructible objects, wild animals, dynamic weather, footprints, etc. It will include a rather complex character development system and an entire social hub of its own.

Once MMO games were truly special, and the reason was that there were only a few of them around. These days there are so many MMO games out there that it's really hard to find something truly innovative and groundbreaking. That is also the reason why gamers prefer to return to their old favorites, such as World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy Online, rather than subscribe to any other new MMOs.

\n

However, it looks like MMOs coming out in 2019 may change this trend, as there is a number of truly exciting new MMO titles scheduled for the next year. Most of them are MMORPGs, but others explore a more exciting world of Battle Royale shooters, which isn't surprising at all, as everybody wants that sweet piece of PUBG's pie.
