Biggest Games of 2023

Perhaps one of the most hotly anticipated games of 2023 is Bethesda’s Starfield which will allow gamers to take to the heavens and explore alien planets. Gamers have had their eyes on this title for a long time because it is the studio’s first new IP in over two decades. As the recent Xbox and Bethesda Showcase revealed, gameplay will involve mining for minerals, blasting at enemies, and making use of an in-depth character creator system. It is scheduled to release in the first half of 2023 on PC and Xbox Series X/S.

After an endless barrage of rumors and alleged leaks, Capcom finally confirmed Resident Evil 4 Remake’s existence, and it also gave the game a 24 March 2023 release date. As players of the original game will know, Resident Evil 4 focuses on Leon Kennedy who travels to a rural Spanish village to rescue the president’s daughter. There, he discovers the Las Plagas parasite that has turned the local villagers mad and violent. Very little is known yet regarding what Capcom has done with the remake, though players will get to experience it on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.

A launch date for PS VR2 has not been revealed, though Sony has given gamers a glimpse of the headset. Studios have also announced they have projects lined up for the upcoming headset, including Skydance Interactive which is cooking up The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners Chapter 2 – Retribution. It is a much-anticipated game because its predecessor, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, found great popularity on PS VR. Chapter 2 of Saints and Sinners will come to PS VR in 2022 and PS VR2 in 2023.
