To get started, we’d like to highlight a remake of the original Dead Space that’s currently in development at Motive Studios.

Considering Dead Space 3 released back in 2013, the return of EA’s iconic sci-fi horror survival shooter has been long overdue.

The remake will breathe fresh life into the 2008 original with completely remade assets, visual effects, expanded dialogue, and more.

However, at its core the story remains the same: engineer Isaac Clarke finds himself aboard a derelict mining vessel whose crew has turned into grotesque monsters.

Outside of movie tie-ins and the occasional mobile release, we haven’t really seen many games explore the magical world of Harry Potter.

That’s set to change when Avalanche and Warner Bros.’s upcoming open-world action RPG Hogwarts Legacy releases next year.

Set during the late 1800s, it casts players as a new student at Hogwarts tasked with choosing their House and attending classes while exploring the school’s mysterious grounds.

Over time, they’ll learn to cast different spells, brew potions, tame magical beasts, and battle enemies while navigating a morality system based on their actions.

Next up on our list is Wild Hearts, a new multiplayer action RPG that comes courtesy of Omega Force and EA.

Reminiscent of games like Monster Hunter, this title sees up to 3 players hunting massive creatures in a fantasy world based on feudal Japan.

It boasts 8 unique weapon types that can be leveraged further by constructing permanent objects in the world.

Such tools allow the player to momentarily trap, stun, or otherwise weaken the monster for long enough to get in close and deal massive damage.

A sequel to Respawn and EA’s Star Wars Jedi series will be making its way to PS5 come mid-March of 2023.

Set five years after Fallen Order, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor sees Jedi Knight Cal Kestis seeking refuge while being pursued by the Galactic Empire.

Doing whatever it takes to survive, he’ll travel to new planets to gather allies, hone his skills, and take on bigger threats than ever before.

On PS5, Survivor will offer faster load times and better-quality graphics than the original.

Capcom is set to continue its trend of remaking classic Resident Evil games by revisiting the fourth mainline entry in the iconic survival horror franchise.

Resident Evil 4 Remake is due out on PC and consoles in spring 2021 and will bring revitalized action to the beloved zombie game.

This includes reimagining the storyline which centers on Leon Kennedy along with implementing a host of graphical and gameplay improvements.

It’s reported that many team members from the well-received Resident Evil 2 Remake are involved with the project so here’s to hoping it’s just as good.

After all these years, we were just about ready to hang up our dreams of Dead Island 2 ever coming out.

However, in a strange turn of events, the zombie game will finally make its way into players’ hands come April 2023.

Taking place several months after the original Dead Island and Riptide, Dead Island 2 brings the undead fun to a now-quarantined Los Angeles.

Here, players get to explore a brand-new open world while mastering the sequel’s new combat mechanics and updated “rage” and crafting systems.

From Rocksteady Studios, creators of the beloved Batman: Arkham series, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is an upcoming action-adventure game set in the DC Comics mythos.

It takes place in an open world based on Metropolis and sees players controlling four playable characters that make up the Suicide Squad: Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, and King Shark.

The story centers on the four-man wrecking crew as they attempt to defeat Brainiac after he invades Earth and brainwashes the Justice League.

Designed with co-op in mind, Suicide Squad will let players team up with friends throughout the story or play solo, switching between characters and relying on AI teammates.

The next entry in the Street Fighter franchise is slated for a June release and looks to be injecting new life into the legendary fighter.

This includes an expanded roster of fighters like Luke and Lily alongside classic characters like Ryu and Chun-Li.

All have received a new design that pairs nicely with Street Fighter 6‘s new bold and colorful graffiti-inspired art style.

On the combat side of things, the game introduces a new Drive Gauge system designed to spark player creativity when stringing together combos.

It’s been a long road for Diablo 4 so we’re eager to see what Blizzard has to offer after a string of controversial releases from the company.

Maintaining the dungeon-crawling identity of its predecessors, the game sees you navigating through procedurally generated maps in pursuit of loot.

Along the way, you’ll battle formidable foes using five playable classes that have appeared in previous Diablo games.

Diablo 4 marks the return of PvP battling alongside new quests, combat mechanics, and open-world environments.

Reminiscent of stylish action games like Bayonetta and DMC, Stellar Blade is about a survivor fighting unknown creatures on a post-apocalyptic Earth.

Combat is modeled after fast-paced action games and sees your character taking down enemies with spectacular attacks, parries, and dodges.

The game also includes platforming sections that challenge you with scaling walls, sliding tactically around enemies, swinging from ropes, and more.

On PS5, Stellar Blade will take advantage of the DualSense controller’s built-in haptic feedback but is also expected to release on Xbox consoles and PC.

Tchia is an upcoming open-world adventure game in which you play as a young girl exploring a physics-driven sandbox.

The game offers tropical locations to discover, characters to get to know, and hidden surprises around every corner.

Additionally, Tchia has a special ability that lets her magically transform into 30+ different animals as well as 100+ objects.

This is reflected in both the story and gameplay, with Tchia using her powers to help her friends, explore the island, and escape danger.

Although Amplitude is best known for a string of dedicated-strategy games released under the Endless moniker, the studio’s next project will expand into real-time action.

In Endless Dungeon, players take on the role of shipwrecked heroes forced to fight their way through abandoned space stations while protecting a sacred crystal from monsters.

Each character has a specialized kit of abilities, weapons, and tactics that can be combined with others to create new and exciting synergies.

It’s a delicious blend of MOBA, strategy, twin-stick shooter, and tower defense that has us looking forward to playing Endless Dungeon on PS5.

Unknown 9: Awakening is an upcoming game by Reflector Ent. that adapts the company’s larger Unknown 9 Storyworld to interactive mediums.

While details are far and few at the moment, the game is touted as a third-person narrative-driven action-adventure title.

The story centers on a young woman named Haroona as she unlocks mysterious powers within herself before being thrust into an alternate dimension known as The Fold.

Considering this is Reflector’s first foray into video games, it’ll be interesting to see how they approach the video game format and which, if any, new gameplay concepts are explored.

It’s still so mind-boggling to think that fans were able to will Skate 4 into existence by bombarding EA forums for years requesting a new entry in the previously dormant franchise.

Although technically more of a reboot than a sequel, Skate 4 is still early in its development, so there’s no telling what shape it will end up taking over time.

Based on previous entries in the series, we anticipate an updated version of the original’s tactile control scheme along with a handful of new features.

For example, most modern skateboarding games include options for capturing cool gameplay moments, such as built-in photo modes and clip editors.

In 2019, German developer Daedalic Entertainment announced they were working on a licensed game set within The Lord of the Rings universe for next-gen gaming consoles.

The new title is depicted as an action-adventure game that intends to “tell Gollum’s story from a perspective never seen before, in any storytelling medium, all the while staying true and faithful to the legendary books of J.R.R. Tolkien.”

Best described as a cinematic stealth adventure, LOTR: Gollum will have you traversing faithfully detailed environments, many of which have never appeared in a LOTR video game.

With the success of other LOTR spin-offs such as Shadow of Mordor and its subsequent sequel Shadow of War, it’s clear that there’s an audience of players who would jump at the chance to explore Middle-earth from a new point of view.

The original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is fondly remembered as one of the most groundbreaking video game releases for its incredible scope, immersive gameplay, and epic narrative.

The ability to travel to multiple planets meeting a wide range of diverse characters and encounter larger-than-life foes made for an incredible experience that wasn’t as common back then as it is today.

With an upcoming remake in the pipeline by Aspyr Media, Lucasfilm Games, and Sony Interactive Ent., we can’t wait to see how the classic holds up after all this time.

Of course, players can expect an abundance of technical improvements to be included seeing as KOTOR Remake is being rebuilt from the ground up using the latest tech available.

Having struck gold with Marvel’s Spider-Man and its 2020 follow-up Mile Morales, Insomniac has been given the task of adapting another Marvel character, Wolverine.

Billed as a standalone experience, Marvel’s Wolverine will feature an emotionally-charged narrative complemented by cutting-edge gameplay that will push the PS5 to its limits.

While there have been several Wolverine-related games throughout the years, it’ll be interesting to see Insomniac’s take on the brooding, adamantium-infused hero.

For now, we’ll just have to hold our breath and wait until further details are revealed at a later date.

Speaking of upcoming superhero releases, Insomniac is also hard at work on a direct sequel to 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man that will come exclusively to PS5.

Little is currently known regarding the story or new gameplay elements but we can confirm that both Peter Parker and Miles Morales will be reprising their roles as Spider-Man, or is it Spider-Men?

Additionally, Kraven the Hunter, Venom, and likely a host of other recognizable Marvel villains will be making an appearance.

Much like the original PS4 exclusive, we anticipate Spider-Man 2 will fully utilize the PS5 hardware to allow for faster load times, smoother performance, and more detailed environments.

Currently in development exclusively for PS5, Final Fantasy XVI will be the sixteenth mainline entry in the extensive RPG franchise.

It’s being produced by Naoki Yoshida and directed by Hiroshi Takai and is set in the land of Valisthea, a continent with six factions on the verge of war due to a spreading malady called the Blight.

Players will take on the role of a hero named Clive as he attempts to rid Valisthea of the Blight and defeat summoned monsters called Eikons.

Gameplay primarily revolves around real-time combat in which Clive uses a combination of sword attacks and various magical abilities.

One of the most mysterious games expected to drop in 2022, Pragmata is an all-new action-adventure title developed and published by Capcom.

The game depicts a near-future dystopian world in which humans can more easily travel to the moon and upon doing so, trigger a strange cataclysmic event.

Its sci-fi imagery, moody tone, and ambiguous story feel very reminiscent of another PlayStation exclusive, Death Stranding.

While details regarding Pragmata’s story and gameplay are scarce at the moment, Capcom’s assurance of a “deeply profound” experience has us eager to learn more.
