2022 was a great year for gaming. There were major hits like Elden Ring that both delighted and frustrated fans, and then underrated gems like Marauders that had fans eager to learn everything about the weapons, helmets, and armor that the game features (as FPS Champion goes over here).
It was a strong year for games, but many believe that 2023 can be even bigger. There are some huge launches set for the year, and these games could be some of the best we have seen in years. With that in mind, this blog post is going to look at some of the biggest and best games to be coming out in 2023.
One game coming out in 2023 that has fans excited is Starfield. This is Bethesda’s first unique IP in a long time (over two decades) and will be set in space. While not a ton is known about the game, many believe it will be similar to Skyrim, but set in space. The game will be an RPG and will let players have a ton of freedom to explore space and all that it has to offer.
It will offer a ton of character customization, likely a deep story with many twists and turns, and many interesting characters to meet and things to see and do. Originally announced back in 2018, this game has struggled with delays, but is ultimately ready to be released shortly in early 2023.
Fans of the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts series have been waiting for this game for a long time, and it is finally close to coming out. Releasing on February 10th, 2023, this action RPG will have players control their very own wizard and attend Hogwarts like their favorite characters in the movies and books.
The game will feature an open world and players will do everything from attending classes to customizing their appearance, exploring the world, battling enemies, and even riding magical beasts. It seems to be a very deep game, with plenty of characters to meet and interact with. This is certainly an ambitious game and one that has the potential to be among the best to come out in 2023.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is consistently seen as one of the best games of all time, and sold incredibly well. Ever since the game came out, people have been waiting for a sequel, and it is finally due to come out on May 12th, 2023.
Tears of the Kingdom is sure to be one of the biggest launches of 2023, and will likely play very similar to the original, with plenty of new things to do, missions to take on, and characters/enemies to meet. Not a ton is known about the specifics, but if it is anything like the original, it will be a major hit.
A major addition and change that we know about is the addition of large floating islands above Hyrule, and the ability for the player to easily fly from one to another. There are sure to be plenty of weapons again, and certainly, some new abilities or skills for Link to utilize.
In conclusion, these are some of the best and most highly-anticipated games coming out in 2023. There are plenty of other great games, but these are certainly some of the best that have fans incredibly excited for the year to come.
