Now that you’ve seen the PS4 video games list for 2019, let’s take a closer look at some of the highlights!

Far Cry New Dawn

Release Date: February 15, 2019

Ubisoft Montreal returns to the fictional Hope County, Montana for the first direct sequel to a Far Cry game. After the climax of Far Cry 5 left Hope County in utter shambles, Far Cry New Dawn picks up 17 years later, and find the survivors rebuilding a new world.

Hours of over-the-top gameplay will be available as many of the usual staples of the Far Cry series are present—large open-world exploration, reclaiming outposts, etc. However, Ubisoft Montreal aims to put a spin on a few key aspects. For starters, who doesn’t want to be able to craft their own buzz-saw crossbow? I know I do!

Metro Exodus

Release Date: February 15, 2019

4A Games is finally taking players outside of the Russian tunnels. Based on Dmitry Glukhovsky’s line of Metro novels, 4A Games is ready to unleash the third game in Metro series. Metro Exodus will open up the world and finally let players freely explore the surface level.

Series protagonist, Artyom now has the chance to get a breath of fresh air as his journey across Russia begins. Featuring a dynamic day and night cycle, players will get a chance to absorb all the gorgeous details—when not fighting off mutated creatures that is!


Release Date: February 22, 2019

Exosuits have never looked better! BioWare’s newest IP is in the running for one of 2019’s best-looking games. Jump into Anthem with a group of friends or explore the world on your own. Either way, you’ll be able to fly around in your own customizable Javelin.

BioWare is known for expansive, open-worlds, and with Casey Hudson at the helm, Anthem will likely have a ton of rich lore to go through.

The Division 2

Release Date: March 15, 2019

Another great game for players looking to squad up with friends is Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment’s The Division 2. Opposed to the NYC street, players are now placed in Washington D.C. Players can dive in on their own or form a group of four to take back the city.

The Division is known for grinding out missions to unlock new loot and customizable items for your character. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can take a stroll through the “Dark Zone” for some serious challenge and a shot at some rare items—hope to see you in there!

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Release Date: March 22, 2019

If you’re like me and enjoy the challenging games that come from Hidetaka Miyazaki and his team at FromSoftware, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice should be on your radar. Instead of the gothic-inspired backdrop players of Dark Souls and Bloodborne fans may be accustomed to, 1500s Japan was used as an inspirational focal point.

On top of that, FromSoftware has developed a way to incorporate more verticality into their game. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice gives players a grappling hook, encouraging faster gameplay. So, when you’re not dodging an enemy’s axe or sword, you can swing to a nearby rooftop, or over a wall. Everything is better with a grappling hook, right?

Days Gone

Release Date: April 26, 2019

This is an exciting one! SIE Bend Studio’s Days Gone makes the list as the first PlayStation exclusive game. Bend Studio has been relatively quiet this console generation, tinkering with their survival-horror title—and it seems to have paid off!

Nothing gets the heart racing than witnessing a horde of “freakers” charging towards you. Those these zombie-like foes won’t be your only enemy. Playing as Decon St. John, you’ll come across other bandits, which will allow you to get a little creative in how you deal with them. Set up a trap, or lure one of the undead over to them—put those brains to good use!

Shenmue 3

Release Date: August 27, 2019

Neilo and Ys Net have been working tirelessly to bring the next installment of Ryo Hazuki’s story to fruition. It has been 14 years since we last caught up with Ryo and for a while, it seemed like we’d never get to see his story conclude.

Thankfully, Sony’s E3 conference back in 2015 revealed a Kickstarter campaign that was being launched to help the development of Shenmue 3. After a successful campaign, and four years of development time, the wait is almost over! Fans that grew up playing the first game 20 years ago are very eager to reach the conclusion of Ryo’s story.

The Outer Worlds

Release Date: TBA 2019

As soon as we got a glimpse of The Outer Worlds during The Game Awards 2018, it made my list. Development Studio, Obsidian Entertainment know RPG games inside and out. Add to that, Leonard Boyarsky and Tim Cain, who had critical roles during the creator of the original Fallout, are helming the project.

From what we’ve seen so far, The Outer Worlds features a fun assortment of characters living on a planet where sci-fi meets the 1940s—think Bioshock in space. This will also mark the last Obsidian Entertainment title to be released on the PlayStation 4 as development was already underway when Microsoft acquired the studio last year.

The Last of Us: Part Two

Release Date: TBA 

Sony’s Naughty Dog studio has continually delivered top-tier story-driven games. While The Last of Us: Part Two still does not have a firm 2019 release date, many have speculated this is the year we reunite with Ellie and presumably Joel—who we have not seen in the previews.

Based on the few trailers we have seen so far, The Last of Us: Part Two flaunts incredibly detailed character models and environments. While story elements have been kept close to Naughty Dog’s chest, if it’s even half as impactful as the first, we’re in for a real an emotional ride!

Death Stranding

Release Date: TBA

Wrapping up this list is the most mysterious game this generation, Death Stranding. Helmed by esteemed game director, Hideo Kojima, Death Stranding has had people around the world theorizing what this game is all about.

Featuring a star-studded cast including Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, and Lindsay Wagner, Death Stranding is another title that looks to push the limits on fidelity. Kojima Productions have released several trailers, each more cryptic than the last. Few gameplay mechanics have been revealed, though Kojima has explained that Death Stranding tackles the concept of life and death in a way uncommon in modern video games.

No matter which video game genres you enjoy best, PS4 has you covered this year! Be sure to check out Walmart Canada’s video game section for all PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One titles!
