In addition to the fact that the same voice actors are coming back, if you are hyped about it just like I was, we got our first in-game and in-engine look, pre-out footage of in-game footage, and that sneak eater is a next-generation exclusive, possibly coming out by the end of 2024.

Babylon X combines Western and Eastern narratives and set to come to PCs and the next generation of consoles only sometime in 2024.
3. Squadron 42
At number 3 we have Star Citizen’s Squadron 42 campaign mod, which has been highly anticipated for quite a while. I mean, that is a ridiculous 12E period we’re talking about. However, it seems to be happening later on in the following months, featuring a new cast and the promise to deliver an immersive and accessible gameplay experience for even newcomers. Squadron 42 is coming to PCs only in 2024.

The two games, however, have almost nothing in common except the gameplay elements of Soulframe, which is a bit inspired by Warframe. The Soulframe takes place on a single large open world heavily influenced by nature, where you’re going to be doing a lot of exploration and some Japanese fantasy.
6. Axiom of Maria
Available on Steam through a demo and an early access phase at number six, we have Axiom of Maria. Axiom of Maria is an action-adventure third-person story-driven hacking slasher about a girl trying to get back a family from an AI in a Soul that is a ghost town. Apparently, that’s not Korea, but due to population declines, it’s being turned into this. Axiom of Maria is a cyberpunk style, as you can see in the trailer, even though in early access, it definitely feels like it could be a full game.
7. The Grass of Genesis

13. Still Wakes the Deep
Announced almost a month ago, coming from the same developers of Amnesia, number 13, we have a brand new Unreal Engine 5 project here, going by the name Still Wakes the Deep. The creators are calling it a return to the first-person narrative genre, revolving around an offshore worker on an oil rig fighting for his life through a storm, just a cold whirl with no lines of communication.
14. Enotria: The Last Song
Moving on, we have from idley, It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned this one or seen anything remotely close, We have a Souls-like action RPG coming over, going by the name Enotria: The Last Song. Enotria: The Last Song is said to take place in a world based on Italian culture and folklore, adding a bit of a twist into Souls, which is a chaotic-driven, story-heavy Souls-like, coming to PC and next-gen consoles in 2024.
15. Phantom Blade Zero
At number 15, from the PlayStation showcase earlier in the year, this game’s trailer was reviewed over 10 million times, Ever since this was a beast of a revealed trailer, a quick mission over here, once again, we have Phantom Blade Zero, one of the top 10 most insane-looking RPG hack-and-slashes we’ve come across since Black Myth.

17. Nazralath: The Fallen World
About almost a year ago, we came across a brand new indie studio revealing what seemed to be their totally brand new story-focused Souls-like action RPG, going by the name Nazralath: The Fallen World. I mentioned the game before; it’s taking cues from Dark Souls, specifically Dark Souls 3, set in an open world with a heavier focus on atmosphere. Here’s how it looks. The game is coming to PCs only in 2024.
18. Black Myth: WuKong
Game Science also just went on and launched the official Steam page for Black Myth: Wukong. Black Myth: WuKong is an action RPG hacking slasher, and you get to play as Sun Wukong or the most famous Monkey King himself.

Dungeons of Hinterberg is in the third person and is going to be coming to PCs and Xbox Series X.
20. Killer Bean
Described as a third-person Roguelike shooter, last but not least, we have Killer Bean. I think Killer Bean is the type of game that could potentially revolutionize some stuff. You see, the game is not really a Roguelike shooter but a procedurally generated mix of a Max Payne-inspired Grand Theft Thoro and the fast-paced gameplay of old Just Cause games. And you play as a bean. The game is coming to PCs only in 2024.
