Just like Golf Story, Sports Story lets you get up to a variety of different shenanigans as well as a healthy dose of sports. You can explore dungeons, go fishing, and much more besides. Instead of just playing golf though, you can play all sorts of different sports such as tennis, hockey, football, and baseball.

Motive Studios at EA has revealed that it has been beavering away on a remake of the original Dead Space – one of the best horror games of all time.

After the release of the first Vampire Masquerade: Bloodlines in 2004, nothing came as close to a great vampire RPG since. Thankfully, Hardsuit Labs and Paradox Interactive are bringing bloodlines back with a sequel that promises to take us on an immersive role-playing experience as a vampire thrown into the world of bloodsuckers in Seattle. As a newly sired vampire, you’ll find yourself caught up in Blood trade war between competing vampire factions. With dialogue options, alliances to be made, and choices to make, Bloodlines 2 looks like it’s shaping up to fill the void the first game left behind it.

Platform(s): PC, Xbox One, PS4Release date: TBC
After the release of the first Vampire Masquerade: Bloodlines in 2004, nothing came as close to a great vampire RPG since. Thankfully, Hardsuit Labs and Paradox Interactive are bringing bloodlines back with a sequel that promises to take us on an immersive role-playing experience as a vampire thrown into the world of bloodsuckers in Seattle. As a newly sired vampire, you’ll find yourself caught up in Blood trade war between competing vampire factions. With dialogue options, alliances to be made, and choices to make, Bloodlines 2 looks like it’s shaping up to fill the void the first game left behind it.

Platform(s): PCRelease date: TBC 2022
Nightingale comes from former BioWare boss Aaryn Flynn. First revealed during the Game Awards 2021, Nightingale is described as a “shared-world survival game” that takes place in a Victorian fantasy setting. Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it?

Stray

Park Beyond

(Image credit: Bandai Namco)
Platform(s): PS5, Xbox Series X, PCRelease date: TBC 2022
Park Beyond is a brand new theme park sim coming to new-gen and PC, and it’s being made by Limbic Entertainment – the team behind Tropico 6. It might not be trying to reinvent the genre wheel, but it is doing something a little different. Introducing the word “Impossification” as the theme for the campaign and the features at large, you’ll be playing as a visionary brought in to breathe life into an ageing theme park. Classic rides are getting improvements that take them beyond reality, beyond gravity’s pull, and beyond current imagination – hence the word impossification. It’s silly, but it just might be brilliant. 
Open Roads

Lord of the Rings: Gollum

Slime Rancher 2

A Plague Tale: Requiem

Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope

The Callisto Protocol 

Ark 2 

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora

2023
Spider-Man 2

(Image credit: Marvel / PlayStation)
Platform(s): PS5Release date: TBC 2023
Insomniac is cooking up more Spider-Man goodness, and this time Peter Parker and Mile Morales will join forces to fight someone that sounds suspiciously like Kraven the Hunter in Spider-Man 2. We also got a glimpse of Venom – teased in the last game – in the trailer, but it remains to be seen whether he’ll be more of a friend or a foe. The trailer gave us everything you want from a new Spider-Man game, acrobatic combat, webslinging and spandex suits, but now it’s double the fun. 
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

Breath of the Wild 2

(Image credit: Nintendo)
Platform(s): SwitchRelease date: Spring 2023
Breath of the Wild 2 is set to bring us back to Hyrule for another adventure with Link, only this time, Nintendo is expanding it even further by allowing us to explore the skies above. While we got the chance to see some gameplay for the sequel – which doesn’t even have an official title yet – during E3 2021, there’s still a lot of mystery surrounding everything it will include; particularly when it comes to the story. While it was originally slated for release in 2022, Nintendo recently announced that it will now be coming our way in Spring 2023.  
TBC
Alan Wake 2

Platform(s): PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC
Release date: TBC
During The Game Awards 2021, Remedy officially revealed our very first glimpse of the much-hoped-for sequel, Alan Wake 2. While we didn’t get to see all that much of Wake’s return other than a very gruesome crime scene and flashes of the protagonist standing in changing environments, Creative director Sam Lake did confirm it will be Remedy’s first-ever survival horror game. We’re due to see more of the game in summer 2022. 
Slitterhead

(Image credit: Bokeh Game Studio)
Platform(s): TBCRelease date: TBC
During the Game Awards 2021, we got to see the very first look at Slitterhead from the director behind Silent Hill, Keiichiro Toyama. Developed by Bokeh Game Studio, trailer opens by saying that Toyama has returned for a “new challenge in horror”, From what we’ve seen, with insect-like creatures and swords made of blood, it certainly looks like we’re certainly in for a creepy experience.
Wonder Woman

(Image credit: Warner Bros.)
Platform(s): TBCRelease date: TBC
A Wonder Woman game is officially on the way from Monolith, the developer behind Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, and Gotham City Imposters. So far, we’ve only seen a very brief teaser trailer during The Game Awards 2021, which shows off brief glimpses of the hero’s iconic armor before we first see Wonder Woman appear on screen, it is said that “she will fight to unite the warriors of two worlds.” 
Marvel’s Wolverine

(Image credit: Insomniac Games)
Platform(s): PS5Release date: TBC
Ok, so we don’t know much about the new Marvel’s Wolverine game right now, only that it’s being made by Spider-Man studio Insomniac and is a PS5 exclusive. We do know that it served up an absolutely kick-ass teaser trailer for its reveal, featuring our favorite clawed grump sat at a bar in the aftermath of a brawl, trying to enjoy a whisky. He’s rudely interrupted, and that’s when those famous talons make their appearance. We don’t even get to see his face in the short snippet, but we’re excited anyway.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake

(Image credit: Disney)
Platform(s): PS5, PCRelease date: TBC
The classic RPG is getting a full remake thanks to Lucasfilm Games and Aspyr. If you missed it the first time around, the game is set over 4,000 years before the Skywalker saga. It’s a time when the Jedi and the Sith are at war. Your job is to help stop Darth Malak as he and his Sith armada threaten the Galactic Republic, finding companions and exploring planets like Dantooine, Tatooine, and Kashyyyk along the way.

Sports Story 

(Image credit: Sidebar Games)
Platform(s): Nintendo SwitchRelease date: TBC 
Sidebar is back with another RPG about sports… but that’s not all it’s about. Just like Golf Story, Sports Story lets you get up to a variety of different shenanigans as well as a healthy dose of sports. You can explore dungeons, go fishing, and much more besides. Instead of just playing golf though, you can play all sorts of different sports such as tennis, hockey, football, and baseball. With lots of fun sporty antics and adventuring to be had, Sports Story looks like another entertaining pixelated delight. 
Skull and Bones

Everwild

Little Devil Inside

(Image credit: Neostream Interactive)
Platforms: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, PCRelease date: TBC
After starting life as a Kickstarter project, Little Devil Inside actually appeared in the big PS5 showcase in 2020. This is an RPG with survival elements involved, and quite the little sense of humour. It’s set in a Victorian-esque era, where you’re tasked with discovering – and fighting – a range of bizarre monsters. It looks like quite the romp. 
Hollow Knight: Silksong

Indiana Jones

Ubisoft’s Star Wars game

Contraband

Bayonetta 3 

Project 007

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II 

Dead Space remake

(Image credit: EA)
Platform(s): PS5, Xbox Series X, PCRelease date: TBC
Motive Studios at EA has revealed that it has been beavering away on a remake of the original Dead Space – one of the best horror games of all time. This version has been “rebuilt” from the source material, but removes loading screens, keeps it micro-transaction free, and may well even add in some additional content that was cut from the original. Arriving on new-gen consoles and PC exclusively, this will no doubt be the best version of the game yet. 
Metroid Prime 4 

Diablo 4

Beyond Good & Evil 2 

The Elder Scrolls 6
