With the revelation of several new technologies and the upgradation of a few existing ones, the gaming world is expected to roll out some mind-blowing gaming features. Here is a review of a few games and gaming trends that are expected to surface next year.
4 Expected Gaming Trends in 2019
Cloud Gaming: With the advancements in cloud computing, it is expected that the gaming trends will shift to cloud gaming in the year 2019. With this technology, you will be able to play a game using any device. Cloud computing will provide you access to the updated games that will also minimize the headache of updating your games. All you will need is a good internet connection, and you are ready to rock!
Handheld Consoles: Handheld consoles emerged in the late ’90s and vanished from the scene in 2000s. Probably those were replaced by PlayStation. The huge popularity of Nintendo Switch has indicated a comeback of handheld devices. It is expected that handheld consoles will grab a huge market in 2019.
Realistic Graphics: Although the gaming industry has made groundbreaking achievements, it’s still far away from providing a realistic gaming experience. The level of graphics is too cartoonish; unable to furnish an overwhelming gaming experience. However, you will experience an entirely different gaming environment in 2019 as VR headsets will come with enhanced graphics technology. The advanced hardware features will provide you with hyper-immersive gameplay.
Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR): Although AR took the world by a storm after Pokémon Go rolled out, it didn’t get much fame in other games. Analysts are of the view that AR technology will strike back in 2019 and a bunch of games will features “AR coupled VR” technology. Probably, Google Glass will rock video gaming in 2019.
