The game year 2019 is history and we are looking forward to the future of gaming. As the eye is also known, we take a look at the potentially graphically most beautiful games of the year 2020 in this video special. However, we do not limit ourselves to triple-A titles, we also show smaller games with theirs convince special style. After all, what does the greatest splendid graphics help if the game still has the charm of a soulless steel bolt? But now that we are messing around enough, let's take a look at the fairies of the gaming year.
Yakuza: Like A Dragon (developer: Ryo Ga Gotoku Studio, publisher: Sega, release: 2020, platform: PS (buy now for € 319.00)4)
The Japanese can already enjoy the latest part of the Yakuza series in January. For us, the title will only appear later this year, but we are really looking forward to roaming the Isezaki-Ijincho district in Yokohama with the new protagonist Ichiban Kasuga and beating all kinds of gangsters on the mouth. The game world already looks wonderfully atmospheric in the gameplay scenes published so far and the figure models look fantastic.
Ori & the Will of the Wisps (Developer: Moon Studios, Publisher: Xbox Game Studios, Release: 11. February 2020, platform: PC, Xbox One)
Ori's second adventure is certainly not a huge blockbuster, but when it comes to optics, the colorful Metroidvania doesn't have to hide from larger productions. Like the first part, Ori & the Will often enchants he wisps with its beautiful effects and the fairytale design of the game world and characters. The game is so pretty that we can't wait to explore the mysterious Nibel Forest and discover Ori's true destiny.
Half-Life: Alyx (developer: Valve, publisher: Valve, release: March 2020, platform: PC)
Until recently, we would not have thought that his VR title would end up on this list. However, we did not yet know that a new half-life was actually announced. Half-Life: Alyx is not the third part of the shooter series that fans have been eagerly awaiting, but at least you now know that Valve is still planning the series. On top of that, the title looks damn good for a VR game, so we'll be happy to use virtual reality glasses to fight the Combine. Nevertheless we would like to have the third part, Valve!
Final Fantasy 7 Remake (Developer: Square Enix, Publisher: Square Enix, Release: 3. March 2020, platform: PS4)
Fans of Japanese RPGs can rejoice, as the long-awaited remake of Final Fantasy 7 will finally be released on March 3rd. The release in episode format and the more action-oriented combat system may not taste like every nostalgic, but the role-playing classic also saw that never look so good. The Unreal Engine 4 seems to be doing a great job, because Cloud Strife, Sephiroth and the other characters look fantastic and the game world has so far been incredibly harmonious.

Cyberpunk 2077 (developer: CD Projekt Red, publisher: Bandai Namco, release: April 16, platform: PC, PS4, Xbox One)
On April 16, 2020 the time has finally come and we can dive into the dystopian future of Cyberpunk 2077. Everything that has been seen so far from the gameplay of the new game from the Witcher makers looks incredibly promising and our mouths are watering too when it comes to graphics. These light effects, these character models, all these details in the game world – Cyberpunk just looks absolutely terrific. With this optical treat, we already know that we will get lost in Night City.
The Last of Us: Part 2 (Developer: Naughty Dog, Publisher: Sony, Release: 29. May 2020, platform: PS4)
In addition to Cyberpunk 2077, Naughty Dogs The Last of Us: Part 2 is probably the most anticipated game of 2020. No wonder, after all, the PS4-exclusive action adventure seems to be just as emotionally rousing as the first part. But not only story and atmosphere make the title a must for Playstation owners, the graphics are absolutely bombastic. Whether the figure models, the game world or the numerous small details that could already be seen in the gameplay scenes published so far – The Last of Us: Part 2 is dirty and brutal, but also looks beautiful. Naughty Dog knows very well how to put good looking games on the screen.

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 (developer: Asobo Studio, publisher: Xbox Game Studios, release: 24. October 2020: Platform: PC, Xbox One)
In 2019, Asobo Studio delivered a great-looking hit with A Plague Tale: Innocence, and next October the French developer studio for Microsoft will launch the Flight Simulator 2020. You can, of course, discuss how exciting it is to virtually attend a long-haul flight, but there is no denying that the flight simulator offers a fantastic look. The title simulates the whole earth in three dimensions with 4K textures from satellite images to the nearest centimeter. This is just impressive and brings the Microsoft Flight Simulator a well-deserved place in this list.
Ghost of Tsushima (developer: Sucker Punch, publisher: Sony, release: TBA, platform: PS4)
Since the Game Wards, we finally know that the PS4 exclusive title should appear in summer 2020. The game, located in Japan in the 13th century, looks absolutely great in the gameplay material published so far. Especially the different sceneries of the game world make a great impression. It also accurately simulates how protagonist Jin Sakai gets dirty in the fights. In terms of play, this is probably completely irrelevant, but it looks damn chic.

Forza Motorsport 8 (Developer: Turn 10 Studios, Publisher: Xbox Game Studios, Release: TBA, Platform PC, Xbox Scarlett)
There is hardly any information on the eighth part of the popular racing game series, but the sparrows are already whistling from the roofs that Forza Motorsport 8 will probably be a launch title for Project Scarlett. There is no official gameplay material yet, but the games in the Forza series have always looked great and the developers of Turn 10 Studios will surely deliver the most beautiful part of the series with the hardware power of the new Microsoft console. We are really extremely optimistic.
Halo: Infinite (Developer: 343 Industries, Publisher: Xbox Game Studios, Release: 2020, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Scarlett)
We know at least a little more about the new part of the Halo series, after all, there was already a chic teaser trailer that supposedly runs in in-game graphics, and Microsoft has already announced that the first-person shooter will be available in late 2020 PC, Xbox One and Xbox Scarlett will appear. The next appearance by the Master Chief will be a starting title for the new Microsoft console and should of course impress prospective buyers directly with splendid graphics. Here, too, we are very optimistic that this will succeed.
