5 Great PC Games You Can Soon Get on Console

August 13, 2019


It’s been a great year so far for console
exclusives, particularly if you’re a PS4 or Nintendo Switch owner (the Xbox games, and
new console are coming, don’t worry). You’ve already had heavy hitters like Horizon
Zero Dawn, Yakuza 0, Persona 5, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8
Deluxe Edition, and Xbox Owners have Crackdown 3 and Cuphead to look forward to this year. And, as if 2017 hasn’t been a great enough
year already for console gamers, it’s about to get a lot better, with a slew of top-notch
PC games that have already been released but are about to join the ranks of console games. We’re here to tell you which ones to look
out for. Dead By Daylight has been a hugely popular
asymmetrical horror game on PC, routinely on the top 100 games played on Steam, which
is no small feat. It even managed to bounce back from the brief
lull in Twitch viewers that coincided with the release of Friday the 13th: The Game,
so it’s not afraid of the competition, and while we certainly prefer Friday the 13th:
The Game, there’s room in our lives for both. Dead By Daylight came to consoles in late
June, and now its DLC is trickling in with the developers announcing that the Michael
Myers Halloween DLC will be dropping for PS4 and Xbox One in August of 2017. Be safe out there! If you’re an Xbox One player, you’ve had access
to Cities: Skylines for quite some time. Colossal Order’s city sim game has been on
Microsoft’s console since April of 2017, while PS4 owners have been watching with envy. Luckily, the wait is almost over, and PS4
players can get their hands on Cities: Skylines on August 15th of this year. As of right now, however, the Xbox One version
only has the After Dark expansion for the game, which is included in the $39.99 purchase,
so it’s likely the PS4 version will have the same access, with further DLC packs coming
later. At least you have more to look forward to! You’ve probably heard rumors of Pillars of
Eternity – legends of what many consider one of the best CRPGs of all time. Well now that “C” also stands for consoles,
as this legendary legend will be making its way to both consoles in late August. What’s more is that this will not just be
a regular port; it’s actually Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition, which includes all DLC released. It’s also been tastefully updated to cater
to a controller instead of the standard mouse and keyboard of PC. As we went over in our preview, these updates
make all the difference, successfully bringing the CRPG to consoles in solid fashion. Lots of people have been raving about Hollow
Knight, an indie platformer on PC that got buried under Horizon Zero Dawn and For Honor
headlines. In fact, even we missed out on it, only getting
around to raving about Hollow Knight recently. Better late than never, though, right? That’s also what people are saying about its
impending Nintendo Switch release. There is no exact timeframe for it, but the
developers have insisted that it’s rapidly approaching, announcing that it was “feature
complete” (whatever that means) back in June. But hey, better late than never. Also, the DLC for Hollow Knight will be included
with the Nintendo Switch version upon release. Asking whether or not you’ve heard about PlayerUnknown’s
Battlegrounds is a good litmus test to see if you’re a PC or console gamer. If you’re a console gamer, you could very
well be oblivious. If you’re a PC gamer, there’s no way to avoid
it. It’s a game that came out of nowhere through
Steam’s Early Access program, went on to rival both Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
in daily player count and sold 3 million copies while it was at it. The game puts 100 players (yes, 100 players)
against each other in an increasingly smaller area until there is only one remaining. It got roped into the console wars as the
developers made an exclusivity deal with Microsoft to release its game exclusively (at least
for now) to Xbox One as part of the “Game Preview” program later this year. The reveal trailer just says “Late 2017,”
so your guess is as good as ours. As for how long this will be an Xbox One exclusive,
signs point to forever. But for as long as it is, you can hold it
over PS4 players’ heads for the entire duration. Those are 5 Great PC Games You Can Soon Get
on Console. Let us know which title you’re most looking
