Want to know about the most anticipated 2023 PS5 games? 2023 looks to be a stellar year for upcoming PS5 games – it’s going to be a busy year, so clear your calendar and start saving. There were so many games announced at the 2022 Game Awards that 2023 has become even busier.
Developed by: Luminous Productions
Published by: Square Enix
Release: January 24, 2023.
Announced three years ago, Forspoken has already gone through several postponements and is now due out at the end of January 2023. The game is the result of a collaboration between Western writers and Japanese developers.
There will be an action-role with third-person view about young girl Frey from New York, who just happened to find herself in the fantasy world. Despite the banality of the story, we are waiting for something unusual, at least gameplay here is something to catch – the entire combat system is based on the active use and mixing of magic. PS5 owners can already try the demo.
Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Walking Dead) is leading a team of writers working on this game.
2. Dead Space Remake
Developed by: Motive
Published by: EA
Release: January 27, 2023.
The Dead Space remake from Motive Studios and EA is one of the most anticipated games of 2023. The 2008 original is considered one of the best horror games of the PS3 and Xbox 360 era.
In the original, Isaac Clarke was a silent man like Gordon Freeman, but in the remake the character has spoken. Actor Gunner Wright, who voiced the engineer in Dead Space 2 and 3, returned to the role. There are no loading screens between levels in the new Dead Space.
Dead Space puts extra emphasis on exploring locations. The developers have added locked doors and containers that can only be opened after gaining increased access levels. Motive has created a technology called Intensity Director. This Director will scare players with random events in any zones, even ones you’ve already been to.
3. Hogwarts Legacy
Developed by: Avalanche
Published by: Warner Bros. Games
Release: February 10, 2023
Harry Potter fans are looking forward to the new game, although Harry himself won’t be in it. Hogwarts Legacy is a promising action-RPG, that will take place in the 19th century Hogwarts, 100 years before Harry Potter was born.
The main character will not be an ordinary student, but a boy with a very rich past, who will get to Hogwarts much later than the other students. You will be able to fully customize the character, choose your own department at Hogwarts, make friends and fly freely through the picturesque surroundings of the magical castle on a broomstick.
4. Like a Dragon – Ishin
Developed by: Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio
Published by: Sega
Release: February 21, 2023.
Like a Dragon: Ishin! – is a complete remake of the original game from PS3 and PS4 (former Japan exclusive), which added new storylines and characters based on characters from the original Yakuza.
Ishin! has nothing to do with the original Yakuza – its events are set in the troubled Bakumatsu period, which is called the last years of samurai age. The game will feature similar characters, but in fact they are completely different characters.
5. Atomic Heart
Developed by: Mundfish
Published by: Focus Entertainment
Release: February 21, 2023
Mundfish is bringing Atomic Heart to next-gen consoles, which sounds cool already. In the story, players will have to suppress the robot uprising at the Facility 3826 in the alt-history version of the USSR. The studio announced a series of videos dedicated to the supernatural abilities of the protagonist of the game – the first video was published on YouTube. A small video, stylized as a Soviet cartoon, gets users acquainted with the “Frostbite” skill. This ability will allow the protagonist to slow down and even freeze enemies. The video shows a pioneer using “Frostbite” to punish a bully, depicted as a cartoon capitalist.
6. Skull and Bones
Developed by: Ubisoft Singapore
Published by: Ubisoft
Release: March 9, 2023.
Ubisoft has done an absolutely fantastic job portraying the life of a sea robber in its Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Taking most of the elements of the game mechanics from it, the company is working on a new pirate-themed video game, Skull & Bones. In it, players will have to head out on the high seas in search of prey to fight over. The game has fallen into production hell, but it looks like it’s ready to get out of it and please pirate-hungry gamers after all.
7. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Developed by: Respawn Entertainment
Published by: EA
Release: March 17, 2023.
The story of Cal Kestis continues in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, a third-person, galactic action-adventure game created by Respawn Entertainment and Lucasfilm Games.
This single-player action game is set five years after the events of Star Wars Jedi: The Fallen Order. The galaxy is plunging into darkness, but Cal’s desperate opposition is only gaining momentum.
8. Resident Evil 4 Remake
Developed by: Consumer Games Development Division 1 (Capcom)
Published by: Capcom
Release: March 24, 2023.
Capcom through its Resident Evil became the king of the survival horror genre – and the company is not going to stop. In March, the publisher will finally get around to remaking the fourth installment – probably the most important game in the series and one of the main games in the industry for all time.
The upcoming remake promises not only gameplay changes, but also a reimagining of the story, though the overall direction of the original will remain the same. Leon will travel to a Spanish village to rescue the kidnapped daughter of the president of the United States.
The remake will feature additional missions and collectibles, and Leon will get more tricks to defend himself – for example, he’ll be able to parry a chainsaw with his pistol.
Don’t forget that this is just a small part of what awaits us this year!
Note: more and more games are bypassing the last generation of consoles, this is probably the last year of cross-gen projects and next year’s releases will finally start to squeeze all the juice out of the current consoles.
Also, if your console has to be fixed first in order for you to enjoy these games, no problem! Whatever your case is from frequent freezing to broken hdmi port PS5 can still be saved by masters of repair.
