Since it’s the spooky season, we here at Vibe are churning out some Top 5 lists of our most anticipated games coming out either this year or early next year!
- Witchfire (Release Date: 2023)
- WitchFire is a game currently in development by a team named “The Astronauts” known for the game “The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.” It has been on my radar for the past few years since it looked like a mix between DOOM and Van Hellsing-type horror and action, using magic and neat-looking guns that combine classic gothic vibes with the technology look that we’ve seen with DOOM.
- Update: As of 10/12/2022 Witchfire has been delayed into 2023
2. Redfall (Release Date: 2023)
- Redfall is a first person co-op game being developed by Arkane Studio’s the minds behind Dishonored and the reimagining of the game Prey and most recently “Deathloop”. In this game you are once again thrusted into Arkane’s immersive worlds as you enter the island of Redfall where vampires have taken control over the island and you must stop their nefarious plans
3. Wanted:Dead (Release Date: February 14 2023)
- Wanted:Dead is a third person action game that mixes fast paced Ninja Gaiden-esque action with the style of a high budget anime. The game transitions from 3D fighting action to 2D anime cutscenes and 3D in game cutscenes. You’ll have multiple weapons at your fingertips as you tear through your enemies.
4. Lunar Abyss (Release Date: TBA)
- Lunar Abyss is a first person bullet hell game currently in development by the studio Bonsai Collective which this will be there first outing and so far it looks great and takes place in an alien structure. Bonsai hasn’t released much in the way of details they only promise it to be a fast paced bullet hell experience. They have not given a planned release date but we can only hope it’s out in 2023-2024
5. S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Heart of Chernobyl (Release Date: 2023)
- S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Heart of Chernobyl is a first person horror game that is currently being developed by GSC Game World and is by far one of the games I’m most excited about. Continuing the series and exploring deeper into the lore and factions that have been talked about in earlier games and in books. The early trailer we got before its delay made the game look fantastic especially on the Xbox Series X running at what looked like 60fps at 144hz but don’t quote me on that.
That about does it here for me at Vibe the Nook, feel free to come back in the future for reviews on all of these games once they release and in depth guides on lore, builds and overall performance. Have a spooky holiday everyone and we will see you later!
