2020 might be halfway over, but there is no denying that it has been an exciting one. This is especially true in terms of video games. The year saw releases and remakes of some of the best games ever. Not only this, but the unveiling of the next-gen consoles were off the charts. With the release of the new PlayStation and Xbox consoles right around the corner, there are no doubt tons of exciting and crucial moments yet to happen, but what about the remainder of 2020? There is still half a year left and that is plenty of time in terms of gaming. Here are some trends that you might want to keep an eye out for.
Xbox X And PS5
Speaking of the new next-gen consoles, it will be 2020 that is the home of the release of both. That’s right, both the Xbox X and PS5 will drop in 2020. If you watched the unveiling closely, you already know that the specs are off the charts. Both systems promise 4k resolution and 120 frames per second with solid-state drivers that are going to make long loading screens a thing of the past. And, this is not to even mentioned the continued run of the Project xCloud that debuted back in March. This is a streaming platform for Xbox consoles that are going to allow users to literally turn their console into an xCloud server. They’ll be able to stream games and media to connected devices.
Mixer Will Grow
There is no denying that Twitch has a long and storied background with its inconsistent rules and lacking platform. To say the least, streamers aren’t too happy with the service right now and there is a lot going on over there. This is why some of the most popular streamers like Ninja and Shroud have already made the switch to Mixer. It’s really just a matter of time before this new streaming platform picks up more or offered a similar deal. Corinna Kopf might not have gone to Mixer, but he’s already moved onto Facebook gaming, so it could be possible that Twitch might be coming to an end in the next couple of years if it doesn’t see to some major changes.
Battle Royale No More?
Battle Royale has been such a popular playstyle for so long that most players have just become adapted to playing it. It seems like there is nothing new or exciting that the playstyle has to offer anymore. And, this could be one of the reasons it dies out in 2020. It is already a well-known fact that people have had enough of PUBG on PC. The game has experienced more than its fair share of problems and it doesn’t look like the developers are rushing in any time soon to make corrections or changes. Other than that, even Apex Legends and Fornite are starting to dwindle in their numbers.
Sony Will Push VR
Virtual reality is something that people have been talking about for a long time now. Popular casinos like พนัน ออนไลน์ will no doubt be taking advantage of the technology when it is made available, but who knows when that will be. Companies like HTC, Facebook, and Sony has not given up on the technology, but it doesn’t seem like there are too many developers working on VR games. On top of this, VR isn’t really accessible to the masses yet due to the high costs. That being said, it is possible that Sony could jump in and change all this. If they get really committed to their next generation of PSVR they could change the whole virtual reality game for both gamers and developers.
4K 60 FPS Becomes Mainstream
You've already seen the specs for the new Xbox and PS. You know what they are capable of producing in terms of frame rates and resolution. If this trend stays on the path that it's currently on then you can expect 4K and 60FPS hardware to be more accessible than ever. 1440P might just turn out to be the sweet spot for PC gaming, but the support for the technology just isn’t available yet. This doesn’t mean that it won’t be very soon, but it just isn’t there yet.
