What are the 33 most exciting upcoming games?
There’s a lot to look forward to in 2024, from big revivals to new experiences that are shaping up to be the best games of all time. We’ve put together a list of all the upcoming games we can’t wait to get our hands on, from the likes of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth and Persona 3 Reload to anticipated indie games like Silence Of The Siren and 33 Immortals.
While some of these games have been announced for PC or consoles, we’ve tried to include the platform that excites us the most. You can expect this list to change as we get closer to the end of the year, but for now, here’s what we’re most looking forward to in 2024.
The most anticipated games in 2024 are:
The upcoming roguelike is bringing back the fast-paced action of the classic Diablo games, with a 33-player cooperative feature that will make for some chaotic fun. Expect randomly generated loot, and a variety of playable characters and enemies from the lore of Game Science’s games.
Game Science has promised a new approach to third-person action RPG gameplay with this upcoming title, which has been billed as an epic mythological tale full of stunning visuals. We’re hoping this is the studio’s answer to a new Dino Crisis game.
Silence Of The Siren
Space fantasy has never been so appealing as Silence of the Siren promises to bring a Heroes Of Might And Magic twist to the genre. The indie game looks to be a blend of 4X and RPG game, with more tactical options, and we can’t wait to see how this blend of gameplay styles works.
Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth
Despite some skepticism about how the story will unfold, one staff member is most excited for Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, and it’s easy to see why. The game brings back the classic combat, character banter, and audiovisual experience that made the original such a hit, and the overhaul has only made it better.
The remake is a revamp of the original game’s predecessor, Persona 3 Reload, which we’ll talk about later, but it’s so good that we had to include it separately.
Persona 3 Reload
The other revamp on this list is Persona 3 Reload, which is getting the Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth treatment, complete with enhanced visuals and streamlined combat mechanics. With new character models and a more fleshed out story, this could be the game that plucks at your heartstrings.
Yakuza: Like A Dragon: Infinite Wealth
The Yakuza series has gained a lot of western interest thanks to the recent release of Like A Dragon, and Infinite Wealth promises more wacky side quests and minigames. We’re hoping this new entry introduces a lovable new protagonist, and potentially takes the series to a new location.
The new Obsidian RPG has a lot of people excited, and for good reason. Avowed is set in a fantasy world and promises to recapture the magic of New Vegas with a few improvements. We’re hoping the storytelling and moral choices are as rich and deep as they were in Obsidian’s previous Western-style RPG, Fallout: New Vegas.
Baldur’s Gate 3
Although this one technically released in 2023, we’re hoping to see it come to Xbox consoles sooner rather than later. Baldur’s Gate 3 is one of the best RPGs ever, but we’d love to see the console experience live up to its potential. The feature list for this game is so long that we’d recommend checking out our Baldur’s Gate 3 review to get a full breakdown, but we’re hoping Xbox players get the full experience.
The return of Clock Tower is a significant moment in the horror genre. Although the Fatal Frame series has been doing fantastic work, it’s good to see the original back in action. Hopefully, this revival of a classic PlayStation icon will bring us a new entry in the series like Fatal Frame did with Spirit Camera.
Microsoft has given the Halo Infinite release date a major overhaul, and we’re hoping the FPS game will be the start of a Halo 2-style golden age for the series.
