This is a title for sports lovers. We are talking about the new chapter of the series dedicated to American football. In line with what has been done with FIFA, Madden NFL 20 has now also seen the inclusion of The Journey mode (Face of the Franchise: QB1 campaign mode). Players can create their own quarterback, which they then lead through the career at the College Football National Championship, NFL Combine, NFL Draft, and finally one of the NFL league teams. Patrick Mahomes, the MVP of 2018, participated in the works on this mode. If you are a fan of this sport, this is certainly an unmissable event. Madden NFL 20 will arrive on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

9. Ion Fury

A studio founded by authors of numerous modifications for Duke Nukem 3D. The team included many map creators, as well as the entire crew that created a project known as EDuke32. And from this, they have not strayed very far, as the title was made with the exact same graphics engine. The title became Ion Fury after a legal battle. Originally the game was called Ion Maiden, but there was also a famous metal band Iron Maiden, which brought the guys from 3D Realms to court, getting the title changed. Ion Fury will be coming to PC first and later to PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
