The Total War saga has long earned a very good reputation among strategy enthusiasts. Declined through multiple eras, the franchise has dared to offer itself a little fantasy by wearing its mechanics in the very rich universe of Warhammer. If the initiative could leave fans of the historical side of Total War skeptical, the doubts were quickly swept away by Total War Warhammer., which proved that The Creative Assembly understood the franchise without distorting its strategic depth. Needless to say, therefore, that the third part of this version of Total War is eagerly awaited. Two new races will join those already in place as well as the 4 nations of chaos.
If there’s a cult license for a whole generation of PC gamers, it’s STALKER. After a lot of twists and turns, STALKER 2 is no longer a myth, but a reality. Presented in the course of E3 2023, the next installment of the post-apocalyptic survival / FPS game will undoubtedly be a real graphic slap. But more than that, it is especially the return to the area that makes a lot of people salivate. Hopefully the studio stays true to the spirit of the original games, which would keep fans happy, but also allow younger audiences to experience the STALKER brand for the first time.. If we refer to the first images of the title, the horrific and desolate atmosphere of the saga should be widely respected, and this is already very encouraging.
After a disappointing Fallout 76, Bethesda is expected to turn around regarding its next production. It must be said that the studio has carved out an incredible reputation for itself thanks to the Elder Scrolls. Dramatically Changing Universes, Bethesda To Offer A Small Space Trip With Starfield, whose release is set for November 11. Still very stingy in information, Starfield is only illustrated by a trailer which suggests a fairly realistic approach to SF. Many questions arise and many are hoping for the studio’s next baby to be more than a Skyrim in space. We trust the studio to correct the mistakes of the past and reconnect with the quality of the universes we know it, because Bethesda is capable of making huge games, as it has proven before.
The American branch of Arkane announced in the course of the Xbox Bethesda Showcase to release in the course of next summer a title of the name of Redfall. If for the moment not enough details have filtered out concerning the gameplay, we know that the game will place us in the heart of the island of Redfall, in which vampires rule. It will be a question of evolving in this world as a sorcerer, determined to take up arms to hunt vampires. If the title will be playable solo, you will also be able to rub shoulders with monsters with 3 of your friends. Note that the game will be available when it is launched in the Gamepass.
The Homeworld saga is undoubtedly cult for anyone who tried it at the time. The space RTS had a very strong identity and was served by very substantial tactical perspectives. Hibernating since 2013, the franchise has come back to life gradually, including a successful Fig campaign. If for the moment, the information is distilled in a dropper, the developers of the games are aiming for a release for the last quarter of 2023. It will therefore be necessary to arm ourselves with patience before being able to set out again to conquer the stars, at the head of a fleet of mighty vessels.
If you thought that the mechanics of astrophysics are not within the reach of everyone, think again, KSP first of the name knew how to marry the fun to the educational, with a space simulation which does not take itself seriously. Send rockets into orbit, build space refueling stations to explore the entire solar system in the game … so many perspectives that were possible for budding astronauts. With a real depth in the management of physics, KSP should finally welcome its sequel in the course of next year, after multiple postponements. Initially scheduled for 2023, the game has been postponed to 2023, and we hope that the deadlines will be met this time, and that the experience of this new KSP cuvée will be as rich, deep, and fun as the previous one.

You might have forgotten about it, as it’s been pretty low key lately, but, yes, a sequel to the hugely popular Ark Survival Evolved is slated to arrive sometime in the next year. Announced as part of the Game Awards 2023, Ark Survival Evolved 2 will take place after the events of Genesis Part 2, on a new alien planet. If we do not know much more at the moment, however, we have learned that at the casting level, Vin Diesel will be there and will play the character of Santiago. Hopefully, the studio manages to release a stable and polished game upon launch. If the technical criteria are met, we will also have to wait to see how the studio will manage to sufficiently renew its mechanics to offer a refreshing experience for the many and many veterans of the first part.
ARK II trailer
Developed by Relic Entertainment and published by Sega, the famous and demanding Company of Heroes saga will come back to delight strategists with a third episode in the release expected to arrive sometime next year. Placing the action in North Africa and Italy as part of WWII, Company of Heroes 3 should enrich the gameplay of previous episodes with in particular the integration of a tactical pause which will allow the players to interrupt the action and to accumulate several actions which will be executed one after the other once the pause is deactivated. We therefore expect again a sharp and highly tactical RTS, like what we could find in the two previous episodes.
Company of Heroes 3 trailer
Already released for more than a year in early access, Baldur’s Gate 3 continues to simmer in the premises of Larian Studio, to which we owe in particular the excellent Divinity Original Sin. For the moment, only act 1 is available and suggests a very great ambition on the part of the studio. It must be said that tackling such a legend is no easy task and Larian has already been criticized for abandoning the active break and favoring turn-based. Whether we share this choice or not, Larian seems to know perfectly well what he is doing and intends to make a colossal RPG, very responsive, tactically deep and dense.. If no official release date has yet been announced, a release for 2023 is targeted by Larian. Hopefully it manages to meet these deadlines and that we can very soon immerse ourselves in the new version of one of the most sacred licenses of the Western RPG.
