Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

Set 5 years after the first game Fallen Order, Jedi Survivor sees Cal Kestis continue his quest to locate more Jedi in the fight against the empire. The Game Awards trailer revealed that Cody Fern (American Horror Story) plays the Jedi in the bakta tank located by Cal. Not much more is known about his character’s impact on the story yet, however. It has been announced that Cal will utilize a number of different stances and Jedi abilities to expand upon his vast arsenal of techniques.

Fallen Order is widely praised as the best Star Wars game ever made, and Jedi Survivor looks to be following up quite nicely on that path. Jedi Survivor will launch March 17, 2023 on PS5, PC and Series S/X.

Broken Roads

This is one that has been flying completely under the radar so far. Set in post-apocalyptic Australia, Broken Roads utilizes an isometric setting and new morality system allowing the player a lot of creative freedom during gameplay. Developed by Drop Bear Bytes, Broken Roads is going to have a turn-based combat system like the RPG’s of old with up to five players in your party. The studio has indicated they want to make choices for the player that are not always good and bad clear cut as they want to present real moral dilemnas.

The Australian setting with real-world locations is not something we have seen often in a game, and Broken Roads looks like a truly hidden gem with all we know so far. It will be launching in 2023 on PC, PS, Xbox and Switch.

Diablo IV

One of the most famous franchises is back this Summer with Diablo IV, and it is set to be the biggest game of the franchise by far. Barbarian, Druid, Necromancer, Rogue and Sorceror will be our available classes in what is promised to be an incredibly vast character customization setup. This is going to be an online game in an open-world setup with PvP being limited to a separate section. Dungeons can be made private and invite-only, but the rest of the game will see players running into each other.

In development for years now, Diablo IV will hit PC, PS5 and Series S/X June 2023.
