We remember that we loved the first episode of Star Wars Jedi, so we should really enjoy the second one. Then Fallen Order, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor wanting to continue the adventures of Cal Kestis after his breathtaking battle with Darth Vader himself. The latter fled at the end of the last game, so it is necessary to find him to fight with him.

So far, very little information on the gameplay, environment or even the game’s history is available, but the visuals have already drawn us in a lot. Like the first part, the title promises to be faithful to the Star Wars universe while giving us the benefit of fluidity and modern comfort, with a level design reminiscent of the best Souls.

If we are to trust the words of Phil Spencer, what happened nextHollow Knight should see the light of day before the month of June. A godsend for those who enjoyed the first installment of the franchise, one of the best metroidvania of recent years.

Many upcoming games have yet to find a release date and Starfield is part of. This space adventure developed by Bethesda is nevertheless one of the most anticipated titles, especially thanks to its stunning trailers that show us its large-scale open world.

The story of Starfield is still a bit of a mystery, even though its gameplay has already been shown through several detailed videos. He is also a strong contender for GOTY 2023, it remains to be seen if he will succeed in hitting it big. Expected during the year if no other postponements are planned in the meantime.

Another Bethesda nugget we can’t wait to see in action. Developed by Arkane Austin, red fall is a new franchise centered around vampire hunting. In this co-op multiplayer game, you play as one of the members of a group of mercenaries, each from their specialty to combat. Between technology and magic, everything is good to drain the blood drinkers.

We love its super dynamic gameplay and its sharp humor that promises to create explosions. No specific release date has been announced for this game yet, but it won’t be long either.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2

We conclude our selection with a title that does not yet reveal any of its content, but is expected to be messiah-like. After the success of Marvel’s Spider-Man and its spin-offs Miles Morales, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Spider-Man will return to center stage with a new story and innovative graphics.

In terms of immersion, Insomniac Games games are what we do best, so we shouldn’t be disappointed with this opus created especially for PS5. We are certainly entitled to new character enhancements as well as the return of popular villains from the Spiderverse.
