3 Upcoming Games That You Need to Keep on Your Radar


There are a lot of games coming your way in 2023, but with so many shooters, racing titles, and RPGs, it’s hard to keep track of all the titles out there. However, we’ve rounded up some of the most promising-looking game releases to keep you eyes on in the coming months:

Dead Island 2

Release date: 21 April 2023 (PS5 | Xbox Series X/S | PS4 | Xbox One | PC)

After years in development hell, Dead Island 2 will see its release in April 2023. The sequel moves the action to Los Angeles, and brings with it all the stylish, vibrant, and gory first-person melee combat that made the first game such a huge success. In addition to a bigger world, new enemies, and a darker sense of humour, Dead Island 2 also features an admittedly impressive gore and dismemberment system, showing the most detailed flesh wounds we’ve seen in the genre.

Final Fantasy 16

Release date: 22 June 2023 (PS5 | Xbox Series X/S | PS4 | Xbox One | PC)

Final Fantasy‘s more action-oriented approach continues with Final Fantasy 16, which will feature segmented open environments and an action-based combat system involving both melee and magic-based attacks. The story follows Clive Rosfield, guardian to his younger brother Joshua, who witnesses his kingdom destroyed and goes on a revenge quest in pursuit of the dark Eikon Ifrit.

Assassin’s Creed: Mirage

Release date: TBC 2023 (PS5 | Xbox Series X/S | PS4 | Xbox One | PC)

Assassin’s Creed Mirage takes place in ninth-century Baghdad and centres on the coming-of-age story of Basim Ibn Is’haq, the Hidden One who appeared in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, however, the game is set twenty years before Valhalla. The game will be somewhat of a throwback to the classic gameplay of older Assassin’s Creed games, with a focus on story, assassination missions, and parkour, with less emphasis on RPG mechanics and XP building.
