1. Crimson Desert
Parallel is just I mean, that was like hours ago, and then finally we revealed Crimson Desert, your MMORPG or action RPG we had eyes on first about two years ago, followed by an even bigger reveal last year, so if you’ve been waiting on this thing like us, we got a rather lively new look at in-game options, somehow looking like the new Zelda game in terms of the Kingdom if you ask me, and on top of that, a release window of late 2023 for PCs and consoles as well.
Announced around the same time last year, number two, we have something over here called a coat of a soul developer’s first project, which we thought to be some sort of joke in the beginning but apparently not. I mean, a code’s been in the making for over two years now. What we do know is that it is in active development and will be a PC exclusive upon release. This is actually the first time we’re mentioning it over here because we got an update and a new trailer.
Nightingale has been, since last year’s Game Awards, one of the most anticipated games on the horizon, I mean, we all thought it was going to be coming in the 2023 holidays, but the words just came out that the game is releasing on PC exclusively on February 22, 2024. The good news is that it is coming in early access first, so there’s a chance we get console versions as well if you miss out on the game before. Nightingale is a fantasy open-world survival third and first-person crafting game at its finest.
4. Assassin’s Creed Mirage
A day ago we got an update on Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Apparently the new game is coming to PCs and both generations of consoles as well on October 5 this year. Now here’s some good news, maybe for my middle eastern fellas over here: Mirage will actually have a fully Arabic voiceover and his quiet history will be accurate based off of Baghdad’s atmosphere and all the way back to the 9th to 10th centuries. Anyway, we didn’t just go to words; we have a new trailer for it and some more in-game footage.
5. Fera: The Sundered Tribes
Number five we have from a very good developer, in fact the Soul Team, who made Star Renegade, one of the maybe dopest-looking pixel art turn-based RPGs from last year. We got over here through Gamescom another really good-looking action RPG open world, almost Souls Icon, by the name of Fera the Sunday Tribes. This game is a lot like Phoenix Rising, I like to think, and like Monster Hunter, and they both had a baby with some interdimensional monsters that you probably saw in Rick and Morty. Anyway, the game is coming to PCS only in 2024.
6. Once Human
For over three years already, this thing has been off and on. We surfaced to kind of not Avail, but once human now has a release window of late, technically the final quarter of 2023, and it’s going to be a PC to mobile exclusive. Once human, in case you missed it, is the open world sandbox survival game, so the post-apocalyptic world of Iran, by an alien substance called Stardust or something that just makes people into what you’ll see in a second because of the news without a trailer as well.
7. Granblue Fantasy: Relink
You see guys at Gamescom’s opening nightlife. Psy games I honestly forgot how long it’s been since this game was announced—maybe six years. We got a release date of February 1st, 2024, for a grand fantasy link action RPG Scramble game these developers were making, which felt like eternity. The game is quite a bit in the same style as Final Fantasy XV; it’s an open-world JRPG PlayStation exclusive with PC support, like technically all other PlayStation exclusives as of this year, 2023.
8. Outcast 2: A New Beginning
TQH Nordic just came out with another new trailer on Outcast 2. When you’re beginning, they technically retired the game to just plain old Outcasts, a new beginning, and said it’ll be coming to pieces in the next generation of consoles only next year. If you are new to Outcast game, this is a series of real-time strategy games. I mean, technically an original game that started life 25 years ago, it will now be a single-player only kind of game that’s going to 40 hours to beat.
9. Wuthering Waves
Wuthering Waves has actually been amongst the most anticipated PC to Mobile cross-platform support action RPGs of the year ever since the beginning of last year. Ever since the beginning of last year, it has been teased around 10 times with gameplay and story trailers. Now, if you have been waiting on an update like us over here, just get a release window of late 2023 for PCs and mobiles as well. I mean, mobiles initially, even into PCs, we got a trailer for, which is now official.
Four day ago, developers exes interactive went on to release a new game called Dragon Hold, a PVP versus environment medieval fantasy Dragon Back multiplayer. I mean, they revealed the new game called Dragon Hold, a PVP versus environment medieval fantasy Dragon Back multiplayer. I mean, I’m just reading its description on Steam over here with the aim to combine the game for Honor with Panzer Dragoons into a new experience. I mean, technically, it’s just like Century Edge of Ashes, but the difference is that there was a heavier emphasis on PVE in player versus environment, and the world is apparently way bigger.
11. Hyper Light Breaker
Previously announced to be coming over to Steam through a demo in just a month, Hard Machine just came out with a new trailer and the news that Hyper Light Breaker releases in 2024 as opposed to this year, not just that the follow-up to Piper Light Drift over here is only coming in early access next year. If you didn’t know, video games shift gameplay from two-dimensional to 3D while adding up to three players for co-op play.
12. Gate Zero
Available as a demo on Steam and as a PC exclusive, number 12, we have Gate Zero. Gate Zero is a story-rich adventure that takes you back in time to ancient Israel, whereas what you’ve got to do is uncover these old secrets, and with the whole package, we get to explore some history-accurate worlds as you engage with events from the first century. You get to gather resources to help the locals use stealth to avoid danger, and they can play solo or add friends even on mobile. Check out games releasing later in 2023.
Number 13 We have a Postfrost game over here specifically made to feel like a division game versus a third-person survival shooter at its core, but with the addition of a single-player campaign to boot and a companion dog, which is something we’re seeing more and more lately, the other difference is that you not only encounter other groups that are trying to survive that will kill you on site, you also have to deal with freak nature monsters too.
14. As One We Survive
Coming up behind that, we’ve got over here a top-down survival post-apocalyptic action and stealth game kind of in the same vein as Decay with colony management mechanics from a new developer in town called One We Survive. The story over here is that you’re the father of a little girl who happens to be sick during a kind of grid-down post-pandemic event. Anyway, the game is coming to PCS only either late 2023 or early 2024.
15. Street of Rogue 2
RPG sandbox set in a vast randomly generated open world, freedom and fun are what the game has to offer more than anything else. I mean, it’s kind of like what happens if you mix Hot Light Miami with Storage Valley, and then you have like a million possibilities to have fun with. Now, it’s a pixel design game, so I’m guessing it’s not for all of you here, but in any case, the game is coming to PCs only in the early to mid-year 2024.
16. Hunters Uprising
And last but not least, we have Hunters Uprising, a pretty hardcore tactical PVP versus environment first person shooter set in an open world. I mean, technically, it’s a Titan inspired by its talker games, but the story here is a little scary. We must track and kill dangerous Alpha demonic monsters around the world that seem to be infested with some kind of omen. I mean, you get missions every time, and you’ve got to go there, survive Craft, and eventually finish and go to another mission. The game is coming to PCS only later in 2023.
