Upcoming First Person Shooter Game Releases in 2020

Doom Eternal

The next leap in action-packed, first-person combat, Doom Eternal is an upcoming first-person shooter video game, developed by id Software. Cyberpower UK players take on the role of the Doom Slayer, an ancient warrior destined to battle the demonic forces of hell in a gruesome first person perspective set in an ethereal demonic world. Become the slayer in an epic single-player campaign and expect new and improved, impressive firearms such as the heavy cannon, rocket launcher and plasma rifle to conquer demons across dangerous dimensions.

Fans of the original Doom PC game in 2016 are in for a treat, as the gameplay teaser released last month features new and improved high-difficulty Slayer challenges, the ability to take control over enemy units and additional movement upgrades such as wall-climbing, dash moves and more action-packed FPS fun. With impeccable graphics and an incredible immersive gameplay, the fifth title in the Doom saga is set to be one of the biggest FPS games of 2020. Expect release across PC platforms on March 20th 2020.

Halo Infinite

What most anticipated games of 2020 list would be complete without mentioning the expectant release of the next chapter in the legendary Halo series? Teased since 2018, Halo Infinite has been meticulously developed by over 343 different gaming industries to provide a new impeccable multi-platform game engine and is the next ambitious release set to be unveiled later in the year.

Focusing once more on the Master Chief as the gripping storyline, Halo Infinite’s new game engine, Slipspace, will offer a completely new FPS gaming experience, which is more than likely why we haven’t seen any actual gameplay footage as of yet. Aptly nicknamed as a ‘spiritual reboot’ of the entire Halo franchise, cult-fans of the sci-fi series are already dubbing Infinite as the showcase for next-gen FPS gaming, although Halo Infinite is still firmly under wraps at the moment. Although there are no official release dates as of yet, Halo Infinite is expected to land around December.

Drop into quarantine zones and enjoy the cooperative 3-player gameplay experience that relies on tactical collaborative action to take out the infected.

Although FPS gunplay and intense combat action is expected to be very similar to the previous Rainbow Six series, you won’t need to be a seasoned Siege player to pick up the quarantine, creating a totally chaotic and immensely unpredictable gaming environment. Expect radically redesigned action, with impeccable graphics and action-packed mutation madness. The Rainbow Six Quarantine is expected to be released early 2020.
