Top 5 Android New Release Games for 2020
2020 might bring a new console generation, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t new experiences coming to the mobile side of gaming. 2019 was a year that saw Pokémon Go have its most financial year yet and the top grossing mobile game was Tencent’s Honor of King which made an insane $1.5 billion. Mobile gaming is not going anywhere anytime soon. Here are five exciting new games coming to the Google Play Store for Android devices in 2020.
Plants Vs Zombies 3
PopCap’s popular garden vs undead series is making a comeback with Plants Vs Zombies 3 in 2020. While not much has been made public on the game yet, if you have a Samsung Galaxy S7 or any stronger Android phone you can get access to the pre-alpha once spots have opened. Until more is revealed, there isn’t much to say about PvZ3 other than it will be fun to dive back into these games. The second game released back in 2013 and since then all we have seen is the Garden Warfare series.
This one will definitely be the oddest choice on this list, but because it is Pokémon we’re going to talk about it. Pokémon Sleep aims to make sleeping entertainment in the same way that Pokémon Go make walking entertainment.
How the “game” works is you will have a peripheral called the Pokémon Plus+ (great name there) that will track your sleeping and transfer that into potentially catching or training Pokémon in Pokémon Go. In all honesty, we have not heard much on the game in awhile now, but keep your eye out for this if you are a Pokémon Go player.
Game of Thrones: Beyond the Wall
While it missed the series finale of Game of Thrones in 2019, there are still plenty of fans that should pick up Game of Thrones: Beyond the Wall when it releases this year. The game takes place 48 years before the show and sees you take control of the Night’s Watch. You recruit and build your army as the Lord Commander and go beyond the wall to explore the Three Eyed Raven’s past. If you are looking for more background lore while waiting for a new book from George R. R. Martin, Beyond the Wall might be for you.
While Diablo Immortal received a lot of hate from the PC crowd at Blizzcon 2018, the game does look good running on a phone. Blizzard could have easily ported another version of Diablo III to mobile, but instead brought in another company to fully develop something new. Set between the events of Diablo II and Diablo III, Diablo Immortal sees how the shattered WorldStone affects all of Sanctuary. Fragments of it have destroyed the land and summoned demons and monsters to harass the citizens. Should the demons get their hands on the shattered pieces, Diablo will return once again.
Above is the newest gameplay video from Diablo Immortal. In it, the team shows off some new and returning items, moves, and characters (including the Demon Hunter). Probably the most notable addition is that your character will have an ultimate to pull off now. Blizzard’s Overwatch gained a lot of praise for each of its characters having unique, fun ultimates so hopefully that will translate well to Diablo. Now that Diablo IV is finally announced, hopefully fans of the series will give Immortal more of a chance to impress them.
The Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon series are some of the greatest racing games you will currently find. They remain one of Xbox’s most popular series for racing fans with tight controls and gorgeous graphics. The series is making the jump to mobile with Forza Street in 2020.
As you could guess from the name, Forza Street focuses on street races to win your collection of cars and gain infamy. All cars can be upgraded to your specifications and timing your braking, accelerating, and boost will be the key to victory. This mobile title is dedicated to delivering either a fast racing experience when you have a couple minutes to spare, or you want to dive into its story.
