    In general, Atomic Heart is an explosive mixture of nostalgia for the USSR, science fiction and tracks by Alla Pugacheva. Doubly intriguing is the fact that Atomic Heart is made in Russia, where real game blockbusters have never been created before.

    Release Date: May 26, 2023
    Platforms: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Windows

    Diablo IV

    Release Date: June 6, 2023
    Platforms: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Windows
    Developers: Blizzard Entertainment

    Diablo remains the only game series launched by Blizzard’s gold roster that continues to grow. Unlike StarCraft and WarCraft, this series has managed to move beyond the third part.

    Diablo is the ancestor of the action-RPG genre (a genre whose main attributes are the story, empowering the character through gaining experience for killing enemies, as well as the use of various armor and weapons – “Gazeta“). It was with the release of Diablo in 1996 that RPG games ceased to be stuffy graphomania for doomers and turned into brutal action games understandable to everyone with bloody battles with swords and staves.

    In the third part, Diablo moved away from gothic gloom original in the direction of the entourage of oriental tales. Many fans of the series, such changes were perceived with hostility. Apparently, these bayonets reached out to the developers of Blizzard and pricked them painfully, because with the release of the fourth part, the series will return to its roots. Diablo IV will return decalitres of blood, hideous fiends, as well as dark dungeons, from the passage of which a lump rolls up in the throat.

    Starfield

    Release date: first half of 2023
    Platforms: Xbox Series X|S, Windows
    Developers: Bethesda Game Studios

    Bethesda is famous for its games that you can play almost endlessly and still find something new in them, even if there are no online modes. The greatest RPG of all time, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, is especially bright in this role. The game is over 10 years old, and the players still continue t find previously undiscovered content and inspiration for new memes. This is despite the fact that at least 30 million people around the world managed to play it.

    Starfield is a game in the same genre and from the same developers, but already in a science fiction setting, and not medieval fantasy. In it, the player will take on the role of a space explorer who travels from planet to planet, exploring new worlds and clearing them of enemies, if any. Along the way, you will have to go through tons of weapons and armor, get to know hundreds of characters and learn dozens of skills.

    Starfield is Skyrim in space, and even the developers themselves openly talk about it. The game will likely sell for decades – such is the magic of Bethesda games.

    Hollow Knight: Silksong

    Release date: first half of 2023
    Platforms: Linux, macOS, Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S
    Developers: Team Cherry

    Indie games, that is, projects created and released without financial and marketing support from publishers, are good because they are always pored over by the most motivated creative ideas of enthusiasts, who are not dominated by producers and investors, dictating what needs to be done so that the game first of all turns out to be sold, and not good.

    One of these projects in 2017 was the game Hollow Knight , a 2D platformer from the development duo behind Team Cherry. Like most other artists, William Pellen and Ari Gibson are, in a good way, “crazy” guys. Together they made a game in the complex metroidvania genre (a genre in which the emphasis is on the gradual exploration of the game world, access to some areas of which is limited by the plot – “Gazeta“). Hollow Knight proved to be so flawless that many consider it better than Metroid itself, the game from Nintendo, after which the entire genre was named after.

    Silksong is a sequel to Hollow Knight. In it, the player will once again have to save the kingdom of Hollownest bugs from an ancient evil. True, this time you will have to control not the nameless knight from the first part, but his fighting girlfriend Hornet, which may be weaker, but noticeably faster and smarter.

    Judging by the trailers, Silksong will turn out to be nothing no worse than the original Hollow Knight, which means that Silksong is already claiming the title of the best indie game of 2023.

    STALKER 2: Heart of Chornobyl

    Release Date: December 2023
    Platforms: Xbox Series X|S, Windows
    Developers: GSC Game World

    STALKER 2 is a continuation of the original STALKER trilogy In principle, the presentation of the game can be ended here – so everyone knows Strelok, Sidorovich, as well as the phrases ” go your own way, stalker” and “I caught an olive.” A spruce that spoke one on one against the perverted radiation of nature. In it, an open world is available for study with a mass of abandoned scientific and industrial facilities of the USSR, as well as nomadic mutants, anarchists, and adventurers like the main character.

    Criminally few details are known about STALKER 2. However, this is almost not upsetting, because if the game gives at least half of the impressions that the original STALKER continues to give, then this will already be a victory. And there is hope for this, because the same Ukrainian studio GSC Game World is developing the sequel.
