  • Final Fantasy xvi

More advanced mediaeval fantasy artwork, fascinating storytelling, and (maybe most shockingly) British voice actors are all promised for Final Fantasy XVI, the 16th instalment in the massively successful game series.

There is currently no game that uses PS5-level visuals to depict a massive mediaeval fantasy setting. According to producer Naoki Yoshida, “we opted to focus on the scenery of mediaeval Europe and blend it with the concept we came up with.” This was discussed in a recent interview for Final Fantasy XVI.

  • Payday 3

The release of PAYDAY 3 is scheduled for 2023, so the news has had plenty of time to spread. After PAYDAY 2's enduring success, the first-person action video game has high expectations to live up to.

The third game in the series will stand out because of its New York City setting. It will also take place sometime after the events of PAYDAY 2. Fallas, Hoxton, Chains, and Wolf will all reunite for a major New York City job. That's all we have so far, anyway.

  • Resident Evil 4

As its name suggests, Resident Evil 4 is a remake of the original 2005 game, and it will make use of all the current gaming technology to increase the tension and terror of the original. This new version of the game will have “cutting-edge survival horror” and will be released in the year 2023.

  • Ark II

Ark II is a dinosaur-and-robot mashup survival game that was first unveiled in 2020 by Studio Wildcard. The fact that it's the sequel to 2017's smash hit survival game ARK: Survival Evolved is certainly a factor in the game's popularity, but that's not the only explanation for its high Google ranking. Someone else? In addition to appearing in Ark II, Vin Diesel served as an executive producer on the project.

  • Starfield

Starfield has undoubtedly taken first place, with a search volume more than that of both runners-up put together. The game will take place in a realistically rendered space setting with stunning visuals and detailed environments, vehicles, and characters.

You can “make any kind of character you like and roam about with unrivalled freedom as you set out on an epic mission to solve humanity's biggest enigma” in Starfield.

The fact that this is Bethesda Game Studios' first new universe in 25 years is undoubtedly helping to build anticipation. You may not be familiar with them, but these are the award-winning studios that created games like Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
