PC Game Release Dates List 2019 – 2020

PC Game Release Dates 2019 2020

Welcome to the VGAssist PC Game Release Dates List 2019 – 2020 by month with all the trailers. Whether you are looking for PC games releasing in 2019 or PC games still not given a definitive release date, this is the list for you.

This is unlikely to cover every single upcoming PC game of 2019 – 2020 because it’s impossible to keep track of everything these days due to the sheer volume of PC games released on Steam and other digital stores. We’ll be doing our best to keep this list up to date as often as possible.

As always, comments are welcome, and if we have missed anything, let us know in the comments. This list will be continually updated throughout 2019 with revised dates and new titles. For some entries, we have to guess possible release dates but we will make sure speculation is mentioned and dates are as accurate as possible. This PC Game Release Dates 2019/2020 list is continually updated by the VGAssist team with titles being added and dates being changed.

Note: We have made sure that clicking any link or watching a trailer will not take you away from the main list. This list is also being maintained on our Youtube channel so make sure you subscribe there too.

Metro Exodus System Requirements Revealed

Metro Exodus System Requirements

Metro Exodus is one of the big releases in Q1 as 4A Games’ popular franchise returns. The developers are covering all bases in their system requirements reveal with details on what you can expect on a 4K rig.

Minimum requirements should not be an issue for most gamers but meeting those will still only provide 30FPS which is not exactly ideal.

Just Cause 4 – All the Easter Eggs Guides

Just Cause 4

Just Cause 4 features many Easter Eggs including quite a few new ones that have not appeared in previous games. There are some easy Easter Eggs that have made a return such as car number plates and references to Scorpion but we are only looking at the new ones in these guides.  The really cool ones are a little trickier to find and you have to know where to look.

Below you can watch videos that show exactly where you need to go to find them. There is a single video with them all included and individual videos if you are looking for a specific one to save you time.

The trickiest one to find and actually get into is the secret mountain moon base but hopefully the video below will help you reach that. It’s not easy and we lucked out and managed to make it inside the mountain hideaway on the second attempt.

All the Just Cause 4 Easter Eggs

Memorials

Check out the mountain memorials left by the development team.

Fortnite

A quick nod to the popular battle royale.

Goats

These weird goats are on a mountain for some reason.

Mile High Club

A return for the club after its appearance in Just Cause 3. Note the green dancing guy.

Jurassic Park

Dinosaurs apparently used to be a thing in Solis.

Take on Me

A great reference to Aha’s chart-topping hit that really well done.

Cow Gun

Mooo! Turn people into cows and turn Rico into one too.

PUBG

Smash-em-up with the frying pan.

Laughter Track

Hahahah. Yes, you will be laughed at if you take serious damage.

Small Car

The teeny tiny car which we crashed a bit too quickly.

Secret Moon Base

What’s going on in here? Break the glass and take a trip to the moon.

Getting over it

A real tribute that will drive you mad.

Where to Find the Just Cause 4 Getting Over It Easter Egg

Just Cause 4 Getting Over It Easter Egg

Avalanche’s latest entry in the Just Cause 4 series sees the return of Rico Rodriguez as he shoots his way around Solis causing mass destruction.

Discovered as the game released, Just Cause 4 comes with a rather special easter egg which pays homage to the indie title Getting Over It from developer Bennett Foddy. The frustrating little indie title released back in December 2017. This little tucked away treat of an Easter egg will have players attempting to pickaxe their way over a series of obstacles as the game switches to a side-scroller just like Foddy’s original.

To get started, players need to locate a cauldron high on a mountainside to the east in the Picos Helados region. Activating the cauldron and pickaxe will start the challenge. Once started, the Easter egg also comes with commentary from Bennett Foddy himself.

Update: You can also find out where all the other Easter Eggs are in our updated post.

This is where you need to go to find the Getting Over It easter egg.
This is where you need to go to find the easter egg.

The video below shows exactly where you need to go and what you need to do to take part in this Easter egg challenge.

PC Game Release Dates 2018 – 2019 by Month / Date

As always, comments are welcome – we’ll add any glaring omissions and this list will be continually updated throughout 2018 with revised dates and new titles.

Fallout 76 Easy Fat Man Location Guide

Fallout 76 Easy Fat Man Guide

The Fat Man is an iconic weapon and it has made a return in Fallout 76. Not all the Fat Man locations have been found as they can be random quest rewards. This mighty weapon doesn’t always spawn at the same expected locations depending on the server you have joined.

Despite this, there is one location the Fat Man always seems to appear and it’s near the Garrahan Mining Headquarters to the south of the Appalachia map. To get your hands on this Fat Man so you can launch mini nukes, assuming you have any, you need to balance your way along the suspended monorail until you reach a small platform. Sitting right there is a Fat Man waiting ready for you.

The video below shows exactly where you can pick this one up. This is at least a start prior to getting your hands on more from quests and other random locations as you traverse the Fallout 76 world.

 

Fallout 76 CAMP Guide

Fallout 76 Camp C.A.M.P Guide

Like Fallout 4, Fallout 76 comes with building options or, C.A.M.P as they call it. It’s effectively your home base which can travel around with you as you play thanks to the ability to relocate it with the push of a button.

Players should think about setting up their first C.A.M.P between levels 5 and 10 once the initial quests are done and dusted. By the time a player reaches the Morgantown area, it’s time to setup C.A.M.P.

While you are on your initial quests, look around for resources, and collect items that could contain useful ingredients used for making C.A.M.P objects. For example, while exploring make sure items such as logs are harvested for wood. These are lying around the landscape of the game world and are needed for the most basic C.A.M.P structure elements. Scrapping items will also provide useful components and this can be done at workbenches dotted around the world.

The Basics to Fallout 76 C.A.M.P Building

When setting up the first Fallout 76 C.A.M.P it’s worth paying attention to the landscape you are setting it up on. A flat piece of land is best. The reason for this is that later when a C.A.M.P is moved it needs to be placed down on similar landscape. In other words, if you build on a slope, it will have to back down on a similar piece of land with a similar. Here are the basics to get started.

  • To get started, open up the Pip-Boy with TAB and then press Z. This will deploy the C.AM.P. Select build and you are in the workshop mode.
  • You need to find a build area. You can only build when the C.A.M.P will turn green when you are on free land not overlapping another build area. Once placed it will be viewable on the world map.
  • Along the top, there is a menu and on PC use Z and C to move along the top menu.
  • The first thing to do is drop down a Stash box. This is where you can store all your items which can be retrieved later. This cannot be accessed by others
  • To start building, you need to place a floor foundation to build on. This requires wood to get started.
  • Use the Arrow Keys on the keyboard to cycle through all the different options for each component listed on the left-hand side. Not all will be available, it just depends on what resources you have to build items.
  • Place an item such as a wall on the side of the foundations and the building has begun. Remember, cycle through each option to find things such as different wall types with windows and gaps for doors.
  • Remember, be conservative to start which means you don’t even need to build walls to start, just the foundations.
  • C.A.M.Ps have a budget (see top right of screen). This indicates the maximum amount of items that can be built. You cannot exceed this. Note that stored items contribute to this budget and more complex and expensive objects will eat up large chunks of the budget.

Navigating menus can be fiddly and options are limited when you start building.

  • Stash
  • Weapons Workbench
  • Armour workbench
  • Cooking station

There’s no doubt building can be a little fiddly and it takes some practice. Once the foundations and the basics such as workbenches are in place, you can expand out but keep in mind the footprint of the camp in case you do want to relocate it.

Walls are not essential when you start but will offer some protection when they are built.

Alterations

Assuming you want to make alterations to the C.A.M.P there are two ways to handle it.

  • Scrap and object which will deconstruct it but will only return 50% of the resources used to make that object.
  • Store the object for later use.
  • Stored items will still take up your C.A.M.P budget.

Blueprints

When a C.A.M.P starts to get complex, the whole structure can be stored as a Blueprint. This is a saved snapshot of a C.A.M.P or part of a camp that can be saved and deployed over and over. It saves having to build things from scratch.

  • Highlight an item and it will turn blue and then move to select multiple items so the whole structure is tagged blue. You can now create a blueprint from that object.
  • Enter the name and save it for later use.

Essentials

  • The Stashbox is essential. This cannot be accessed by others but teammates can use the Stashbox which will show their stored items (not the camp owners).
  • When teamed with other players, you can add components to their camp.
  • Workbenches etc are a great way to save trips hunting them down on the map or having to travel great distances to find a bench. Get these setup within your camp as soon as you can.
  • Food production is also helpful and you can stock up before heading out.
  • Building near resources will save time. For example near water which can then be purified in the C.A.M.P or setup with a source of oil which can be collected for use.
  • Put down some sort of sleeping apparatus such as a mattress, sleeping bag or bed for somewhere to easily restore HP quickly.
  • Once a camp’s structure is in place, place defensive turrets on balconies to shoot down at targets out of reach of the enemy.

XP Farming

One way to gain XP quickly is to deploy a C.A.M.P with defenses such as turrets in areas where there are enemy AI. Let the turrets take out the enemy for you and watch your XP increase. Think about a design that has turrets elevated on ledges and protect the structure on all sides with these turrets. Save it as a blueprint for easy deployment.

Finally…

The most important thing to remember is that it costs no Caps to travel to your C.A.M.P so make use of it and save time. If you’re C.A.M.P is not overly complex and has a compact footprint, it can be redeployed wherever you are. This in itself saves time and gives you the opportunity to break down items for component parts or even just resupply yourself before heading out into the wilderness.

Players can raid camps but note that if that happens they will be marked as Wanted. Keep that in mind if you decide to do it yourself.

Find plans while out exploring will increase the build options. Note these have to be actually read to become active. If you follow the main questlines plans will start popping up but you need to find them.

Lastly, if you’re going to build big, collect everything you can on your travels and frequently break it down to get the components needed to expand your Fallout 76 C.A.M.P.

The Best VR Games

Best Vr Games

Virtual Reality is slowly but surely becoming more popular as hardware prices drop for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Since the hardware launched, VR games have been a real hit and miss affairs. In this list, we break down the very best VR games currently available for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive owners. We’ve tested and played all of these and will continue to add new top quality games to this VGassist list. Watch out for future updates, and remember, VR is still very much finding its feet and it will be some time until we see a huge list of great VR games.

The Best VR games available…

Beat Saber

Steam

There are few action rhythm game available now for VR but by Beat Saber is by far the best one available. Using two swords, players need to slice their way through oncoming squares in a different direction in time to the music. The game comes with a few songs which are average but the community has been creating their levels based on popular songs. Some of these creations are excellent but once you start playing you will want access to more. The only downside to Beat Saber is there are simply not enough songs, either original or modded by the community, to satisfy your hunger to play more. It’still well worth the money.

Battlezone VR

Steam

Rebellion has taken the classic Battlezone franchise and brought it to VR on the PC. This tank action shooter challenges players to make their way across procedurally generated maps in either single player or co-op multiplayer. The game has rogue-like features where players have to upgrade their tanks and collect ammo and currency to help them stay alive. Extra lives need to be purchased to stay in the fight.

This is solid arcade shooter that shines in co-op multiplayer. Read the review.

House of the Dying Sun

Steam

Mike Tipul’s studio Marauder Interactive created one of the finest space combat titles for VR. The game was previously called Enemy Starfighter, but was renamed to House of the Dying Sun prior to release to fit more with the game’s story. This is a really solid space shooter that works fantastically well in VR; the visual are clear and it’s highly immersive. Fans of classics such as X-Wing vs Tie Fighter really need to check this out.

Sprint Vector

Steam

Survios follow-up on the success of Raw Data with something completely different, a competitive running racing game. In Sprint Vector players have to use their arms as the means of locomotion to propell themselves through multiple levels against human opponents or AI. Be prepared for a bit of a workout (see review).

Boxed In

Steam

Imagine playing something like Tetris where you are placed right in the heart of the action. This is Boxed In. This low-priced and simple game is highly addictive as players have to remove blocks from a room as they advance towards you. Players can change the colours of blocks to create chains of blocks of the same colour to remove them from the play area. It’s not easy!

BOXVR

Steam

There’s a lot of talk about using VR to get fit and one of the best titles that will make you break a sweat is BOXVR. In this game, players need to punch oncoming orbs in different directions to the music. The game comes with pre-defined workouts which and each workout attempts to provide different workouts. The game comes with quite a few songs but it really shines when you add your own MP3 tracks in Training Mode. This is BOXVR does give you a good workout.

Elite Dangerous

Steam

Frontier’s Elite Dangerous was one of the first space sims to embrace modern VR and it’s been an option in the game for some time now. The game supports both the Rift and HTC Vive. While the game looked OK on the Oculus DK2, when the Vive released support for HTC’s headset was added too. Although not outstanding on the Vive, the game is worth your time of you have VR ready to go. Elite Dangerous is constantly evolving and if you can invest the time it’s worth exploring the outer reaches of space.

 

EVE: Valkyrie

Steam

CCP really embraced VR development and spent a long time working on EVE: Valkyrie. It was one of the outstanding titles on the Oculus DK2 and was often used as a showcase for VR. Now with Vive and Oculus support, this is a game that takes you online to battle others in space dogfights. CCP continues to add new game modes and it’s worth looking at if you can afford it. It’s a little pricey.

 

Raw Data

Steam

Survios’ Raw Data is one of the truly decent shooters for VR. Players have to take on the nasty Eden Corp and battle robots with both guns and swords.

Although this could be considered to be a simple wave shooter, it distinguishes itself with great freedom of movement through a teleport system that feels highly intuitive. It can get quite mental when the robots start to swarm, and there’s multiplayer too which is a big bonus.

 

Star Trek Bridge Crew

Steam

Ubisoft invites gamers aboard a Federation starship to work as a team playing as captain, helmsman, tactical or engineering officers. Designed for co-op play, Bridge Crew is a brilliant VR title which can also be played in single player. This is a VR game everyone should own.

Eurotruck Simulator 2 / American Truck Simulator

Steam

SCS’ Eurotruck series is hugely popular, and, although it may sound like an odd choice for a VR game, it’s surprisingly fun. Coming to a road junction and looking out of your cab for oncoming traffic feels extremely natural. It just works incredibly well in VR; SCS has put a lot of thought into smooth functionality.
