With dozens of unit types and unique hero characters, Iron Harvest offers a serious amount of strategy and customization.
With a sprinkle of Pokemon, a dash of Harvest Moon, and a pinch of Animal Crossing, the Ooblets recipe is one oozing with charm and chill. So far, we don’t have an official release date, but we can’t wait to get our hands on this beautiful creature sim sometime in 2020.
Microsoft Flight Simulator (2020)
The upcoming version of Microsoft Flight Simulator looks to completely redefine the experience. With absurdly realistic graphics courtesy of Microsoft Azure, this game is going to be absolute eye-candy. We are totally hyped about the possibility of taking a beautiful vacation from the comfort of our gaming chairs.
Halo Infinite (Holiday 2020)

After the somewhat lukewarm response to Halo 5: Guardians, fans are really hoping 343 Industries delivers with the next entry. Let’s tear down those PC/console walls and share in celebrating the glory of Master Chief this holiday season.
