In 2019, we have seen lots of racing games receiving new updates and DLC packs. In this article, we’ve compiled a list of the best racing games in 2019 that you can have.
GT SPORT (PS4)
Gran Turismo has always been a highly popular series for the PlayStation gamers. However, the latest edition in the series – Gran Turismo Sport – didn’t receive much fanfare at first. Gamers complained about the lack of cars, poor single-player content, and shallow gaming modes.
Sony quickly reacted on the feedback of the gamers and subsequently released a series of updates over the period of a few months. With every new update, the game improved considerably. The roster has increased and continues to grow, with the latest addition of Lewis Hamilton’s 2017 F1 car.
With 4K capabilities of the PS4 Pro, GT Sport provides some of the most enthralling visuals. Plus, the multiplayer capabilities of the game make it one of the best racing games of the year.
FORZA HORIZON 4 (Xbox One, Windows)
Forza series is renowned for setting benchmarks in racing games. The previous release – Forza 3 was one of the best racing games in terms of visual quality, gameplay, and sound. This year it’s the Forza Horizon 4 which is making a lot of rounds in the gaming scene.
The game has no match for its stunning visual quality and the availability of a huge car roster. With that, the game also allows you to customize any vehicle – the way you want.
Unlike many other games in the genre that have switched their focus to multiplayer modes, Forza Horizon 4 still has an immersive single-player campaign. On the other hand, it has some of the best multiplayer capabilities as well.
