STALKER 2 Heart of Chernobyl upcoming game-min

  • Developer: GSC Game World
  • Publisher: GSC Game World
  • Platforms: PC, Xbox Series X/S
  • Release date: TBD 2023

This is STALKER 2: The latest installment in the famous STALKER series. You are in Chernobyl, a few years after the disaster, after another disaster has created strange anomalies. Flora and fauna have mutated, Pripyat is an absolute military exclusion zone.

You still wander through the area as a stalker and look for particularly valuable “artifacts”, strange things that are created by the anomalies. Radiation and mutants are constant dangers that you have to defy.

Using Unreal Engine 5, STALKER 2’s non-linear story should deliver the tension and thrill players expect from survival games. A multiplayer mode is also coming post-launch as a free update, which is always appreciated.


WRONGED US upcoming games 2023-min

  • Developer: Delusional Studio Limited
  • Publisher: Delusional Studio Limited
  • Platforms: PC, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5
  • Release date: TBD 2023

Some information gleaned directly from the Delusional Studio site promises us some cold sweats to come. Wronged Us is inspired by the famous misty city, namely Kojima’s Silent Hill . Suffice to say that it was enough to intrigue us. We are aware that it is not a question of displaying the SH banner to open all the doors, however there is something to pique our curiosity.

Some images seem rather uneven in terms of their quality, but Delusional Studio reassures us by explaining to us that the different shots seen during the trailer were recovered during different moments of development.

This third-person survival horror is currently only in the development phase, it will probably be necessary to wait until 2023 to be able to hope to lay hands on it.

Delusional Studio Limited also cites Silent Hill and Resident Evil as major inspirations when it comes to its story, atmosphere, and game mechanics. 4:3 aspect in mind. That said, there will also be a 16:9 option.

  • Release date: TBD 2023

Scheduled for 2023 (if all goes well), Alan Wake 2 will therefore arrive 13 years after the release of the first episode, and if Remedy took so long, you should know that the Finnish studio has been thinking about it for more than 10 years. Illka ​​Villy, the actor who lent his features to the character of Alan Wake, talks about the fact that Sam Lake has been talking about it since the end of the first episode and knows full well that the announcement of Quantum Break has been somewhat disappointing for fans awaiting the return of the tortured novelist.

Deathground is most notable for its inclusion of dinosaurs, which are pure nightmare fuel. Despite how terrifying these extinct creatures can be, they are often used as fodder for traditional shooters. Even the venerable Crisis of the Dinosaurs franchise pivoted to action by its second installment. Deathground includes single-player and co-op modes, as well as some procedural systems for replayability. Unpredictable elements such as weather, spawn points, and dynamic objectives are meant to keep players revisiting the game.

This first-person psychological horror game draws inspiration from titles like the controversial Shellshock series. Ad Infinitum puts you in the role of a German soldier during the First World War. Subjects such as PSTD are explored through a horror game lens, with delusions and flashbacks featuring gruesome creatures and inexplicable events. It’ll be interesting to see if that perspective can deliver a satisfying horror game, as well as a proper portrayal of the realities of World War I.

  • Developer: Bokeh Game Studio
  • Publisher: Bokeh Game Studio
  • Platforms: TBD
  • Release date: TBD
  • Sites: Steam

Slitterhead turns heads with weird creatures that reminded people of games like Silent Hill and Sirenhead. That’s no coincidence, given that Bokeh Game Studio is headed by Keiichiro Toyama, who served as director and screenwriter on the original, Silent Hill. Toyama also filled the same roles on Mermaid, Forbidden Mermaid 2, and Mermaid: The Blood Curse.

Despite this lineage, Bokeh Game Studio is expanding its horizons with Split Head. It’s not a pure horror game, as the team wants to attract players who don’t typically engage in the genre. Whatever, Slitterhead’s reveal had enough style to excite horror fans.

The first trailer shows a special unit flying in a helicopter with the mission to kill “demons”. However, they are attacked by monsters and crash.

The second trailer then shows more gameplay and you can see how well-known mutants and cannibals from the first part are fought, sometimes with new firearms. In addition, there is apparently a friendly mutant who acts as an ally. There is no concrete information about the story yet.

Resident Evil series have always been the industry leading horror-survival genre games since early 2000s. So it is no surprise the Resident Evil 4 Remake is at the top of our list.
