Does your New Year’s gaming resolution call for less paragliding and fewer creepers? If so, 2019 is going to be a very good year for you! The best upcoming PS4 games offer more brain-rattling, seat-of-your-pants gaming than ever before. Here’s a look at four of them—including some fun PS4 games for kids.
KINGDOM HEARTS III
Finally: the 10th installment in the resoundingly popular Kingdom Hearts series. Rugged adventures await Sora, Donald, and Goofy as they travel to different worlds—many inspired by the wonderful world of Disney and Pixar. Join the trio (and new favorite characters like Winnie the Pooh) as they fight to stop an evil force from overtaking the universe. Will light triumph over darkness? Can the power of friendship defeat even the worst enemies? You’ll have to play to find out!
If you’re a Disney-Pixar fan, you’ll love Kingdom Hearts III. It’s the only place you can play alongside heroes from heart-warming films like Toy Story, Monsters, Inc., Big Hero 6, Tangled, Hercules, and more.
Is It a Great PS4 Game for Kids? Kingdom Hearts III is a safe bet for kids. After all, Donald Duck and Goofy are two of the lead characters! But if your kids are very young (younger than 10), the game mechanics might be too complicated for them.
Release Date: January 29, 2019 (This release date is right around the corner. Is your video game console ready?)
In the multiplayer action role-playing game (RPG) Anthem, you play as one of four team members to explore—and, hopefully, survive—a dangerous and mysterious locale. Helping you in the journey are Javelin “exosuits” that make Iron Man look tame.
If you’ve seen any of the pre-release footage, your mind is probably already blown by the action and design. And if you haven’t seen any footage yet, hold on tight: Anthem looks like an 11 on the 1-10 scale of addictive gaming experiences for 2019.
Anthem is right up your alley if you’re someone whose sense of style needs to travel with you into combat. Players can personalize and customize their suits with unique gear and paint jobs. Tony Stark is already jealous.
Is It a Great PS4 Game for Kids? This game might have too much action intended for fully-grown gamers, so keep the kids away.
Release Date: February 22, 2019
TEAM SONIC RACING
Sonic is to video games what the Flash is to comic books: faster than everyone else. But in Team Sonic Racing, Sonic drives a race car. That’s right: he has to drive a racecar to give the other players a fair shot at winning!
Everyone typically thinks of Mario Kart when you mention fun-loving characters steering their way to victory. But here’s a game speeding toward you that will change all of that.
The colorful courses feature out-of-this-world renderings good enough to give beginners whiplash, plus goofy but challenging obstacles.
Is It a Great PS4 Game for Kids? Yes. It’s a great PS4 game for the whole family! Kids will love unlocking game-changing vehicle customizations. And parents? They’ll like the teamwork aspect of the game, as players must work together to share speed boosts and power-ups.
Release Date: May 21, 2019
Ajna is your typical good-natured kid…until her town is attacked. At that moment, an ability previously unknown to her appears. She’ll need that and more on her mission to confront the warlord who destroyed her home.
What’s to love? You’ve played RPG-platformer hybrids before. You’ve also played games with compelling stories and graphics that pull you into their world and don’t let go. But it’s unlikely that you’ve come across a game that weaves the two together as well as Indivisible does. Has a game about a powerful, sandals-clad ax-wielding girl ever looked this awesome or been so anticipated?
Is It a Great PS4 Game for Kids? It depends on the kid. If they appreciate RPG-style games, you’re likely OK as long as they’re 10+ years old.
Release Date: Sometime in 2019
It’s Game on in 2019!
Can your current PS4 gaming console handle this next-level fun? The truth is, older consoles can’t deliver the same state-of-the-art graphics and gameplay that newer ones can. Upgrade your PS4 gaming console to a PS4 Slim or PS4 Pro and get ready to respawn with the best of them. Start your order to rent a PS4 console and visit a Rent-A-Center near you today!
