Have you ever wanted to walk the halls of Hogwarts, learn new spells in the Defence Against the Dark Arts class or brew up some liquid luck in potions class? Well, for the first time ever you will be getting the chance to do just that in the new game Hogwarts: Legacy. Create your very own student at the world-famous school of witchcraft and wizardry as you hone your skills in the magical arts.
Skull and Bones
Bring your dream of becoming a pirate of the high seas to life with the soon-to-be-released Skull and Bones. Start from nothing and build your ship and crew up to be worthy of taking on some of the most fearsome pirates, privateers and merchants to have ever sailed the seven seas. Upgrade and customize your ship to fit the role you want for it, seek out hidden treasures by deciphering lost treasure maps and last but not least, challenge other ships for the right to claim the bounty before the sea claims it forever.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
The sequel to the first in this series ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is looking to build on the success of its predecessor with some intense lightsaber combat, epic environments and yet another captivating story. Continue in the shoes of the young aspiring Jedi Cal Kestis as he faces new threats and a range of new enemies.
Dead Island 2
If decapitating zombies, building obscene weapons and powering through to survive a world-threatening virus is your thing, then Dead Island 2 is the game for you. Following on from the first instalment Dead Island 2 has taken the sun-soaked, paradisiacal undead violence and cranked it up to 10! Take to the streets of LA and rack up a mind-numbing zombie count in this new sure-to-be-favourite first-person survival game.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League
Developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is set to take the superhero gaming world by storm. Play as the slightly dysfunctional team of gun-wielding anti-heroes as they struggle to dismantle Brainiac's master plan and maybe sort of save the world.
Alan Wake 2
Not much has been revealed about the upcoming sequel to the original Alan Wake, but what we do know is that the first game was one to remember, and if that and the little we have seen of the upcoming sequel is anything to go off of, then the new yet-to-release horror-survival is sure to be a chart-topper. Check out the link below to watch the initial release trailer.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora
With the drop of the long-awaited 2nd Avatar film Avatar: The Way of The Water, there couldn’t be a better time for developers, Massive Entertainment, to give gamers the opportunity to step into the shoes of the Na’vi. This upcoming blockbuster is set to push the boundaries of gaming visuals and environments as we know them with the goal of providing a luscious and immersive experience on a level not seen before.
If you were a fan of Skyrim or Fallout or just about any other sci-fi or exploration game, then Starfield could be the next big game for you. After developers Bethesda revealed the first gameplay trailer back in June of 2022, the bar has been set high. With options to customise your character and your ship, the ability to shape the story arc with your own decisions and vast environments to explore, Starfield is set to move open-world gaming to a whole new level.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdoms
One of the most anticipated Nintendo switch releases of 2023, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdoms reaches the public on the 12th of May. The sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been kept relatively under wraps except for a few clips of gameplay, which alone promises us some exciting new aspects to the game series, and not to mention the beautiful open world vistas we have all come to love.
Dead Space Remake
Instead of going back and starting from scratch, the developers have decided to revisit the sci-fi horror hit from 2011 and give it a fresh injection of life. And we don’t just mean that the original game is getting a fresh lick of paint, the developers are rumoured to be updating and even adding some new gameplay features to enhance the classic space-set horror hit.
And so, that concludes our top picks for the games to come in 2023. It’s an exciting list and there are definitely a few games here that we will be going straight onto our Wishlists!
