LAST YEAR SAW A SLEW of massive games, from blockbuste­r sequels like God of War: Ragnarök to delightful indies like Tunic and Game of the Year contenders like Elden Ring. Here, five titles we can’t wait to see in 2023.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom SWITCH

A rare direct sequel for Zelda, this follow-up to 2017’s Breath of the Wild takes to the open skies after a mysterious cataclysm upends the world of Hyrule. Plot details are mum, but reinventin­g the legend is Nintendo’s forte.

Resident Evil 4 PC, PLAYSTATIO­N, XBOX

After multiple rereleases, you’d think fans would be sick of RE4, but Capcom has reanimated the influentia­l title, like an unkillable zombie, once more. With rebuilt mechanics and a visual overhaul, this horror remake looks to be more fearsome than ever.


When it came out in 2017, Hollow Knight had one of the most visually lush 2D worlds we can remember. This sequel — an indie title with AAA clout — is primed to bring fans back to the Hallownest.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 PLAYSTATIO­N

Insomniac’s Spider-Man series has been a blueprint for heartfelt storytelli­ng and stellar action. This supersized sequel puts players as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales in the battle against fan-favorite villain Venom.

Starfield PC, XBOX

Developed by Bethesda, the leader in open-world

RPGs, this original game brings its brand of first-person exploratio­n to the cosmos. Alongside robust character creation and nonlinear gameplay, the space epic will boast more than 1,000 planets to explore, emphasizin­g a colossal number of player choices.
