Space games set the stage for exploring the unknown, massive battles, intricate constructions, along with living and surviving in a vast hostile environment! Welcome to the 25 Upcoming PC Space Games in 2018 & 2019 list! Now, Space is a bit of a nebulous genre when it comes to gaming but it isn't just about a game set in space. It has to have space ingrained into the essence of the theme and gameplay, and the games listed here are thoroughly spacey! No one can promise that they will all turn out good but they're all interesting and have potential in their own rights, so let's get started!

Extra bonus game! *Starsector* ( http://fractalsoftworks.com ) wasn't making that many waves but a lot of you seem to love it, so here's the mention! *Empyrion: Galactic Survival* is also a thing, but I listed it the last 2 years and it's still not out. As a policy right now I don't list the same game as upcoming 3 years in a row. Since many are asking, *Astroneer* is in the Simulation list for various reasons. Finally, *Astrox Imperium* is a single-player RPG set in space if you're into that. Then, look at all the competition for Space Games! Which ones are you most interested in? Which ones do you think will actually make it? You can also check out more gaming lists here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLYVqUDxY6COh7bkuJoBb1koNRX7mAX2yp
Halo Infinite was announced after this video was made, so couldn't really include it. As it won't be releasing this year, it can go into next year's list, though I'm not sure if it counts as a space game or if it's just a sci-fi FPS.
That's how game development has always looked, today or way back in the 90s. Point and click in the early to mid-90s, RTS in the late 90s, MMOs and MMS in the early to mid-00s. Some of those that initially looked cookie cutter turned out to be super hits though. Space is just a big genre now. It's hard to call which would turn out successful, but on average about 10-20% of notable upcoming games turn out good and successful. There are also niche successes, sleeper hits, and hidden gems, so I try to find anything with at least some potential because oftentimes something really rough turns out to be good after a few months of development. Sometimes it takes way too many years to become decent, like The Universim.
An interesting list. I'm always interested in what new games may be coming out. I may not want to actually play them but like to keep an eye on what may be coming.
For myself ... I worked in software development for a long time before retiring and ... that has sort of exhausted my tolerance for buggy software.
I'm not sure of the status of Dreadnought. It's free to play right now and I played it for a while but there's only so much to it. It's all combat. Kind of like World of Tanks with big slow vehicles pounding each other to pieces. People who like World of Tanks or War Thunder might like it.
Curiously, playing Dreadnought made me want to go back and play EVE again.
Thanks! And yes, I know. I'd love to make it a bit more low profile but game publishers and scammers like claiming trailer or official footage for copyright and taking revenue from the video. Doing things like this makes the work more transformative in the eyes of the law and fair use along with not triggering bots scanning for the footage. Most notably, Konami just hit one of my 2015 lists for MGS gameplay footage. This overlay is the result of YouTube siding more with copyright claimants instead of fair use.
When can we have another space rpg with good story now that ME is ruined and Sq 42 is uncertain? Or some engaging single player strategy campaigns like HW, XCOM and SC(personally not a fan but don't care)? I am sick and tired of survival and arcade grinder games.
As nice as this is, I miss story driven space games like Freespace 2, Wing Commander, and Freelancer. I just don't care about multiplayer, and that's all game designers seem to be working on these days.
I didn't realize Stationeers was from Dean Hall until after I was like 25 hrs in. I'm glad it worked out that way because if I had known Dean Hall had anything to do with it before I bought it I prob wouldn't have bought it. But it is a great game.
Star Citizen will not come out. Its just a huge Project where the fans spend money as fuck but never get a full release. The Studio just want to get a long term project and so a long term paid job. Thats all.
I tried that and tons of people care if it's not mentioned and the comments are flooded by people asking where it is. Just scrolling through the comments on this video, you can see a lot of people enjoying the game right now.
Why not use a volcano level combined with diving underwater underneath the volcano in order for the player to stop the eruption before it wipes out the newly founded colony. Or use the volcano as a weapon to wipe out an enemy city. Or fly through a volcano.
GamerZakh haha guess I’m used to top ten lists from groups rather than solo. Didn’t actually look at other comments but yeah empyrion is great they update it constantly, and avorion is awesome too. Hoping for a starfield reveal for E3!
I list interesting or notable unfinished games as they are all still in development. These are what's in development. Nowhere do I promise that they are in a great state right now or that they will turn out great. I'm not a game developer, I just tell you what game developers are making. What great upcoming space games do you think should be in the list?
The text and numbers is some of the most liked parts of my list videos. Also, they are there because YouTube won't support my side at all for fair use and many game publishers try to claim gameplay footage or trailers as copyright.
Okay, Egosoft may have messed up with X-Rebirth but I have faith in these guys. They provided many years of solid space sims and from what I seen with X4 it is essentially X3 remade and that's what I want.
yeah, I keep reporting when I get the option but it seems they are everywhere and there is millions of coins....at least the second add I got was for laundry detergent, so theres 0.1$ for you from me! PS Reporting in again, the next one was for the movie Solo. Now that is good marketing. I'm watching a video about sci fi games, obviously I will want to watch that movie.
Hey totally, ads suck. I've seen those crypto ads too, though you can report the ad to YouTube and tell them you want to stop seeing that kind of ad. My whole goal for 2018 is to move away from the 'ad experience' because it's not fun for the viewer and with YouTube messing with things it's not a reliable source of income. It's a necessary evil right now though as Twitch Subs and Patreon don't earn enough to pay the bills.
This is a great video. I used to spend days searching for these games myself every now and then. Now you handed all that information to me on a silver plate. So thank you. Perhaps you could do this regularly on 2-year basis?
GamerZakh Well, pretty sure I watched that one too. But this ine has more content and brought some games I forgot or didn't even know about to my attention. Oh you make upcoming RTS&RPG series too? Keep up the good work. Subscribed.
Glad you enjoyed this! I do this kind of video every year actually. You can go back and see the 2017, 2016, 2015 video and so on. This is the first year where I put 2 years in the title, but I'll probably make a new one for 2019 & 2020 as half the games I listed will be releasing and more have been announced.
Hi, I can see on the horizon a sci-fi novel adaptation Dome City: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGMNWAVC7sU
The release depends on foundation just like other cases but I think it could get a place in the next 25 sci-fi game list. Thanks
Been playing Hellion, it's as close to actually living in space as I have ever seen. Little light on content, but that is getting better. Osirus I own but found the crafting too tedious so I let it sit.
none of these games will be out this year... would be nice to see a compilation of the games already out and worth checking, not all the games you can ever find piled up like that. A lot of these games are a pure cow chow...
Thank you for the video ... I understood that there's nothing coming out that could interest me.
I was looking for a simple single player space shooter like Wing Commander. I don't have the time & the patience for a MMO. I just want a title where I can save my progress and play one hour after work just to relax and shoot some aliens / pirates / whatever bad guys off the sky :) I don't need a second job mining asteroids ... Thanks devs ... maybe some of you are reading here. Bye.
The idea is to recapture what made the old games great. It's a big theme these past few years. From the slew of remasters/remakes (Age of Empires, Crash Bandicoot, FF7) to spiritual successors (Empires Apart, Yooka Laylee, Two Point Hospital). Lots of people basically want what was but a step up due to the failure of the AAA industry to remain innovative and original. If we get the same old stuff, might as well be the old stuff we actually liked. That's the general impression I've been getting these few years.
Starfield is my most anticipated game, even though its vaporware as the moment. Aside from that, X4 as i really enjoyed X3 and Genesis Alpha One looks interesting. As for Star Citizen, as long as the Lead guy is enjoying his press conference update stuff, i dont think the game will be released. They are well aware once its released and hype dies down, so do the (presumably still good) sales.
Duel universe looks good. Tried Star citizen, 4 day download, 2 hours calibrating mouse 8 times over, 1.5 hours to take off from station fail to navigate anywhere and then the best bit... UNINSTALL THE GAME. !!!
I would like to see the survival sci-fi space-alien planets station simulator/strategy which takes into account the real space physics just like the Orbiter 2016. Something like the Kerbal but much more sophisticated.
Two quick points about Star Citizen;
It's hard to define what 'out' means here. I'm playing it and loving it now in alpha... but clearly it's not done so shouldn't count... but when will it ever be 'done'? Even after official 'release', it's going to be constantly improved tweaked and added to. So a definitely 'gone gold' date will be impossible to nail down just due to the nature of the beast.
Second, some of this genre owes their existance to SC I think. Remember, Star Citizen was pitched to at least one major publishers. Their response was that there is no demand, no one wants this, the entire genre is dead.
Now, go back over this list... dead? That is a comically incorrect statement. You can hate SC and think it sucks/will never be release/scam whatever... at a minimum, you have to acknowledge that they clearly proved that there _IS_ demand for space games, the genre is far from dead.
If nothing else, you have to give that Star Citizen.
I installed star citizen today, and on my 8 GB RAM. 8 GB VRAM, Skylake 6600k this game completely does not run! I have like 10-12 fps, switched to lowest settings with full screen resolution (1080p). I spent 40 bucks and i am afraid i cannot be playing it... Does anyone know if this is the low memory reason I have - 8 GB?
I have heard it's super PC intensive right now. What you can do is open task manager and check what hits 100% when the game is running. You should be able to see if it's your HDD, CPU, Memory, or GPU if you're on Windows 10.
In my opinion, my humble opinion, i liked more are: Starfighter Inc., Dreadnought, Infinity: Battlescape, Avorion, Stationeers, Space engineers, Deliver Us The Moon, FlagShip, Nimbatus, Star Control, Exo One, Hellion, Genesis Alpha One, X4: Foundations, Planet Nomads, Osiris: New Dawn AND Dual Universe
All this game a liked more, is very cool, i like more is the graphics.
Yeah it's always tricky for me deciding what to do with SC in these lists. If I list it people will hate it, if I don't mention it people will hate it, even what I did here people are hating on it. I just did what I wanted with it, there's no pleasing people haha.
The PC community has grown a good deal in a really limited time frame and there isnt any reason to believe the game wont be equally as addicting for Xbox players. The site states its something PUBG Corp wants to add down the road, perhaps as soon as the game is finished, as shown by a Microsoft representative. More info about the 3 PUBG cosmetic packs are found over on Xbox Wire. The lot of different cheats weve encountered has far surpassed our expectations.

The Honest to Goodness Truth on Pubg Warrior Pack
Nevertheless, its always tough to locate a trustworthy seller of a Black Desert account on account of the risk involved in these sorts of transactions. Bring on such a desert map! We guess because its about becoming the lone survivor, even if theres a lot of teamwork on the way.
The game will probably remain in early access for some moment. It continues to attract new players that are hoping to get that sweet, sweet chicken dinner. This usually means youre have to begin downloading the game at midnight, and after that begin playing once PUBG is installed. There isnt just one play through of Black Desert that ends up the same because its up to the player to determine the method by which they level. Because of this, players will need to use the Xbox Game Preview program to be able to play the game. Xbox One players might have to wait somewhat longer for the full-release edition. They will also be able to purchase some exclusive content in the form of special cosmetic packs.
