After experiencing our remarkable Summer showcases, we were treated to a multitude of thrilling game announcements and enticing updates. Now, let’s delve into a selection of upcoming gems that emerged from these revelations.
Ubisoft, in their captivating opening act, unveiled an exciting new addition to the legendary Prince of Persia franchise. As the unfolding events continue to captivate our attention, I’ve discovered a few hidden gems that might have slipped under the radar. With this in mind, allow me to present my personal picks of upcoming games that I believe deserve a closer look.
A Few Upcoming Picks
Very much in the mold of the PT teaser which sadly became no more. It’s an interesting horror title about a person trapped inside their own home.
A farming building sim with a difference. This one features dinos waiting to become your friends.
This is another survival game on the cards. It is set in the Pacific Northwest, we are either on foot or in our station wagon looking for a road to escape. It’s a crafting game in the genre with a difference. We need to upgrade and look after our car
An action-adventure horror with a difference. We are in a world where the past and the present are combined. Steam says we need to fight to survive. So that means we have to “run, fight, and use your wits to stay one step ahead of the most terrifying hunters the planet has ever known”.
Still Wakes The Deep
From the team behind Amnesia: Machine for Pigs, Dear Esther, and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. Though with this, The Chinese Room has returned to the narrative horror genre.
One from the ID@Xbox showcase it’s an upcoming horror developed in Unreal Engine 5. If you’re a fan of the Silent Hill franchise this would be very much worth a look. I recently experienced the demo as part of Next Fest. For those interested, my thoughts can be seen here. It also features music by composer Akira Yamaoka. They were involved with Silent Hill and The Medium.
So naturally this doesn’t include Gamescom or eden Tokyo Games Show. Needless to say, I expect this list to have increased by the close of Gamescom even. Though if you’re looking for something new to look for here are my suggestions for you.
