2023 is already panning out to be a huge year for games!
My Sims empire is thriving, thank you for asking. With gaming technology advancing faster than we can imagine, the gaming world has never been so vibrant and imaginative.
The perfect escapism to our altogether broken world is waiting just behind the screen! Here are my top picks for some amazing new game releases this year! So get your controllers ready and your snack stores restocked. Let’s do this!
Marvel’s Spider-man 2
Anyone else absolutely obsessed with Miles Morales?
Just me? Cool cool cool…
Well, if you’re yet to happen upon the incredible Marvel Universe gaming experience, welcome my friends. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is the next game in the Marvel Spider-Man franchise, and will see Peter Parker team up with Miles Morales to tackle crime in New York City once again.
The dynamic duo we’ve all been waiting to see since the superb first instalment! The trailer for the game is full of anticipation and excitement with its climax teasing one of the most iconic villains in the Spider-verse. Venom. If the other Spider-Man console games are anything to go by, this one is destined to be explosive, fantastical and thrilling. Set for release this year and I for one can not wait.
Assassin’s Creed: Mirage
The next instalment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise is set to be released this year. Having been a fan of the Assassin’s Creed games for a while, I am buzzed.
The incredible success of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in particular is a great example of how the game is evolving, expanding, and following new, fresh and interesting storylines. Mirage takes place in Baghdad during the 9th Century, following the journey of a young Basim (gamers may remember his key role in Valhalla).
The story centres on Basim as he evolves from a common street thief into “the most versatile assassin in history”. Definitely one to watch.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
After the amazing success of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, the story of Cal Kestis continues in this eagerly awaited sequel. The story picks up five years after Fallen Order as Cal continues the good fight against the Dark Side.
No longer a padawan, Cal has grown into a powerful Jedi Knight determined to do everything he can to save those around him.
But at what cost? This single player, action packed adventure game by Respawn Entertainment and Lucasfilm Games is sure to be a force to be reckoned with! I’m ready for my lightsaber now.
Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
This ground-breaking franchise is welcoming a sequel to the incredible Breath of the Wild by (from what I can tell) building an entire open world above it.
The trailer does nothing short of build tension and excitement for what promises to be an absolute firecracker of a game.
Wait…can Link now reverse time? Decide your own path as you negotiate Hyrule and the mysterious floating landscapes in the skies above. Awaken your imagination as you forge your own path to battle back the evil forces destroying the kingdom.
Wild, clever, and set to be one of the most beautiful games released this year. Definitely one to get stuck into!
We can’t talk about games this year without mentioning this absolute beast. With one of the largest open worlds ever created, this game is detailed, magical, intricate, and never ceases to lose its spark.
Your journey begins as a fifth year student who joins Hogwarts late, but is gifted with a rare magical ability. Get sorted into your house, customise your wand, and learn to fly your own broom with some of the most breath-taking and nostalgic visuals of the year so far. Will you be a good wizard, or a dark wizard?
Believe it or not, you can choose! With rumours circulating of multiple different ending options, this game is all about exploration and choices.
These are just a few of the games that are sure to make 2023 a gaming year to remember!
There are many more on the way too so keep those eyes peeled, and controllers at the ready! Now go go go, awaken those imaginations, and get beautifully lost in another world of wonder!
