Welcome gamers! Are you ready to discover the Top Upcoming PC Games in 2023? Well, 2023 will be a year full of surprises to try, I give you my word.
So, I decided to create this selection of video games to help you choose which titles to keep an eye on throughout the year. Trust me, some games should be immediately included in your wishlist.
Enough with the chitchat, let’s get down to business and take a look at the most anticipated PC video games of 2023!
Top Upcoming PC Games 2023: games for all tastes
I promise it’s the last premise. However, I want to explain to you the criteria by which I decided which games to list. Obviously, I opted for the video games that everyone is waiting for. These are PC Games that have great hype and that many are looking forward to playing.
Moreover, I chose video games that can be nominated for GOTY for several reasons: the storyline shown in the trailers, gameplay, and graphics.
In short, the order of video games on this list is based on these four criteria:
- The gameplay (so far)
- Graphic detail
Now we can get started, so I hope you like the Top Upcoming PC Games 2023!
Well, where to start if not from Hogwarts Legacy? It’s the game of the moment, and everyone is looking forward to it. In fact, this video game could be fantastic, a real masterpiece. For the first time, we could experience the possibility of entering the world of Harry Potter, a world shown in the magnificent 8 films of the saga.
With Hogwarts Legacy, you can create your own character and live your story. The possibilities seem to be endless, this is GTA meets Harry Potter. To be honest, there may also be downsides to consider. Personally, until I try the game, I don’t want to go out on a limb. Yeah, I’ve been through this before with Cyberpunk 2077, so I want to be more careful this time. Regardless, this is candidate number 1 for GOTY, so pre-purchase it now, it will be worth it.
Release date: 10 February 2023
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is a video game that has a lot of potentials. It is the sequel to a Star Wars themed video game that has had critical and public success: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. In fact, as opposed to video games like Battlefront, FO has a compelling story, interesting gameplay, and a beautiful main character. However, some gameplay mechanics were repetitive and trivial.
From the trailers that have been released, it seems that Survivor manages to have the strengths of its predecessor, eliminating the flaws. For this reason, I expect a more varied gameplay with multiple fighting styles and many options to use the Force. Besides, I noticed some graphical improvements in the animations. In short, it can really be a perfect game, you just have to wait for its release date.
Release date: 28 April 2023
Resident Evil 4
Resident Evil 4 is yet another reboot/remake of the Capcom saga. Regardless, I think it’s worth including it in the list of Top Upcoming PC Games 2023. Why? Because Resident Evil 2 is a really nice game and Resident Evil 3, although it has many limitations, it still remains a fun title. Capcom with these reboots/remakes has managed to find the right mix of nostalgia and innovation.
In addition, some insiders have said that some parts of the game will be “changed drastically”. The hype is there and it is useless to hide it. Let’s face it, we can’t wait to get back in the shoes of Leon Scott Kennedy and shoot those damn zombies! Plus, you can save 16% if you pre-order the game.
Release date: 24 March 2023
The Last of Us Part I
What can I say about The Last of Us Part I? It’s one of the games of the year on PC. Period. The HBO television series only highlighted the magnificence of this work. Yes, I know it may seem simplistic and banal, but TLOU is one of the masterpieces of the world of video games.
Sincerely, I would like to deepen the topic but I think I will talk about it in the future in a dedicated article. A game like this MUST be played on PC, there is no excuse. If you’ve never tried it, don’t worry, here’s the pre-order link, you’re still in time to redeem yourself from your gamer sins.
Release date: 28 March 2023
Top Upcoming PC Games 2023: Deliver Us Mars
Deliver Us Mars is the sequel to Deliver Us the Moon but you don’t have to have played the first chapter to try this new adventure. The plot follows a group of space explorers on the Red Planet. However, it is a game where there is no action, but much storytelling. Playing Deliver Us Mars is like watching a good movie: you can get carried away by the emotions on the screen and get involved in the story of the different characters. I think this can be one of the most exciting games of 2023, it can involve you completely.
Definitely, a video game to try. Pay attention, the game has already been released, on February 2, 2023, so you can try it, but I still wanted to include it in the Top Upcoming PC Games 2023.
Personally, Atomic Heart is the most awaited video game in 2023. The trailer, which you can see below, reminds me a lot of Bioshock. In fact, I’ve been waiting a while for an FPS that has fast-paced action and an interesting story. Some time ago I tried Dying Light 2, but honestly, I expected better.
However, what fascinates me most about this game is its aesthetics. It is a kind of Soviet steampunk, a mix of meat and machines, contrasting yet ethereal. Sure, I’m scared of the likely bugs or gameplay issues that the game may have. I don’t know Mundfish developers and I think this is an ambitious project for them. Regardless, I want to be optimistic and think that this is one of the best games of 2023.
Release date: 20 February 2023
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a game I’ve been waiting for for a long time. The hype for this game is skyrocketing, so I decided to include it in the Top Upcoming PC Games 2023. Not surprisingly, I included this game in the Top Upcoming PC Games 2022… but it hasn’t been released yet.
Well, that scares me a little. The game is taking too long to be released and the continual postponements are not a good sign. Steam doesn’t have a release date yet. Bad for worse. In addition, I had high expectations even for Gotham Knights, but sincerely disappointed me and disappointed all fans of the Batman Arkham saga. The prerequisites for Kill the Justice League to be an exceptional game are all there: from gameplay to the storyline. However, this title seems to be surrounded by shadows. In short, Warner Bros Games goes all-in with Suicide Squad. Will it be a suicide or a wonderful explosion of politically uncorrect? We just have to wait to find out.
Release date: N/A
Top Upcoming PC Games 2023: Starfield
I want to trust Todd Howard and I want to trust Bethesda. Really, especially after Fallout 76 seems to be a fun and enjoyable game. Starfield, the new IP Bethesda, is due to debut this year.
What to expect from this game? At best, Skyrim in space. At worst, an unprecedented disaster. Yeah, I mean worse than No Man’s Sky at debut. Originally, the game was to be released on November 11, 2022. Regardless, today there is still no definite date for its release. From the trailer, it looks promising but hoping that this is a game without bugs and errors on day one is a leap of faith.
Release date: N/A
Octopath Traveler II
Octopath Traveler II is not a mainstream game. However, it is the game that I think will impress in 2023. It is the sequel to Octopath Traveler, a jewel developed by Square Enix in 2018. Octopath Traveler II is a vintage JRPG with a magical and exquisite atmosphere.
This game allows you to have wide customization of the style of play. Facing the 8 main campaigns, you can experience the stories of different characters, sometimes having total freedom in the game world. This makes the video game long-lasting and beautiful to explore. In addition, it seems that Octopath Traveler II is quite difficult, a challenge for those who love pure gameplay. In my opinion, this is a game to pre-order without thinking twice.
Release date: 24 February 2023
Last but not least, at the end of the list of the Top Upcoming PC Games 2023 there is Wild Hearts. Not many people know this game, but for me, it has huge potential. In this game, you have to capture and hunt the Kemono, huge monsters that have merged with nature.
You’ll have to use all of your skills and inventiveness to catch the giants. In short, it seems to me a sort of “Light-version-Monster-Hunter”. Hey, I tell the truth, watch the trailer and tell me if it doesn’t look like a new chapter of Monster Hunter! However, the hype is there and also the desire to try it!
Release date: 16 February 2023
