This is a somewhat hybrid title in the world of first person games. Ranged weapons are rare here, Dyig Light having always favored melee combat. After a successful debut episode, Dying Light 2 seems to have tweaked its formula and taken it to the next level. You will therefore always find this mix between parkour and visceral combat, a day / night cycle that changes the morphology of the city in which you find yourself, and will benefit from a real narrative turn based on the choices and the consequences. While we hope that the game will be more than a Dying Light 1.5, the first impressions we had as we got our hands on this open world were more than encouraging.
Radical change of tone and atmosphere for the Texas branch of Arkane Studios. After having cut his teeth on the very successful reboot of Prey, the studio is tackling vampires this time around and unveiled, as part of the Xbox / Bethesda conference at E3 2023, Redfall. For the time being, we have very little information about this title, the release of which is however close since it is set for summer 2023. On the other hand, we know that it will be a cooperative FPS world tour that will immerse you in the heart of the small town of Redfall, located in Massachusetts. This small town has seen its tranquility disturbed by the arrival of vampires who have obscured the sun and totally isolated the city, sowing chaos among its inhabitants. You will therefore be in charge of fighting against this threat, alone or up to 4 players.
Scorn’s development does not appear to have been smooth sailing. The developers themselves concede it, things were not always easy for this title initially promoted on Kickstarter in 2014. The campaign had not reached its goal by then, but the game eventually regained strength in 2015. then in 2017 with this time a new successful crowdfunding campaign. Subsequently, Microsoft seized the project and Scorn abandoned its cross-gen ambitions to focus solely on the Xbox Series and PC. Initially scheduled for fall 2023, the atmospheric FPS, very inspired by the work of Giger or Cronenberg, will finally be released in 2023. While these pitfalls are certainly worrying, we remain hopeful that this obviously atypical game will live up to the originality of its settings and its principle., and that it will prove to be as immersive as it is anxious as its trailers suggest. Answer next year, if all goes according to plan.
Lo Wang will be back soon and that may be decided. Shadow Warrior should indeed host its third episode sometime next year and will place you once again in the shoes of the Fallen Shogun, who will have to attempt to capture an ancient dragon that he and his sidekick released by mistake. In view of the images unveiled in the different trailers of the game, we can expect to find all that makes the salt of the saga : ultra brutal and bloody fights, nervousness, a little low humor from the front and varied environments should therefore be there. You will be able to combine aerial sprints, on walls, double jumps and use a brand new grappling hook to overcome hordes of enemies just waiting to serve as cannon fodder.
Finally, the STALKER license is here again. After so many years of silence and uncertainties, the FPS / Survival / RPG will host a sequel next year and as much to say that impatience is great. This STALKER 2 is also quite special, because it will undoubtedly be the first of the franchise in which a large number of players will play. This is why the exercise is delicate for developers. They will have to try to keep the fundamentals of the franchise and its somewhat niche approach to the genre, while opening up to a new audience, who can try the day one game on Xbox and PC directly from Game Pass. If we don’t have too many concerns that the game will be a small technological showcase when it is released., we still have to wait to know how this new adventure will unfold in the heart of the exclusion zone.
Spin off of the Borderlands franchise devoted to Tiny Tina, a charismatic character well known and appreciated by fans of the saga, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands could be a little welcome curiosity in the world of FPS next year. Considered as a “tabletop role-playing game”, the title should place the iconic character in charge of the game.. It will therefore decide in real time the appearance of enemies, rewards and the alteration of events to mistreat the players taking part in the adventure each time a little more. While remaining true to its looter shooter roots, this new vision of Borderlands should land in March 2023 on our machines.
Rainbow Six Siege has been a real success for Ubisoft. The franchise has managed to perpetuate itself and to familiarize itself with the esport scene. Building on its success, the publisher will soon decline the formula with Extraction, which will take the skeleton of the base game. (with what that will include of gadgets, secondary equipment, specific sights, etc.) while transposing these mechanics in an alien infested universe. Your goal will be to eradicate this threat by cooperating with 3 play partners. It will be possible to choose from 18 characters before launching into the fray, and most of the objectives that you will have to complete will have their position generated in a procedural, technical way. which will also be applied to the appearance of enemies. Without falling into the Left 4 Dead Like, Extraction could be a good opportunity to discover the mechanics of Siege in a new light.
When you tackle the adaptation of the Warhammer franchise, you have to accept the risk of speaking only to the very active community which controls its universe, and of leaving the others behind. Recently, however, many studios have shown that porting this very rich universe to a video game could above all serve as a gateway to a whole new audience, and cooperative FPS Vermintide and its sequel had proven it. Warhammer 40,000: Darktide will therefore resume the basics of these and will again be an FPS playable in cooperation up to 4 players and should be released in the spring of 2023. You should find there different classes with customizable skills allowing you to perform your function through different maps: exterminate the corruption of the cult of Chaos.
