15 Upcoming PC Games Worth Keeping On Your Radar In 2023

With the door closing on the year 2022, as gamers, we always look forward to what is coming out next year and what has us most hyped or buzzy-worthy. This past year has brought many amazing games to help us through the year. We had Elden Ring, God of War, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, and even Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered. We also had some games that we thought were going to be amazing that fell short like Lost Ark, Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, and Diablo Immortal.

But just like life, we take the good with the bad and then look forward hoping to see a glimmer of hope for the next year. Here is my list of what I believe should be the top 15 games on every PC Gamers radar for the best games coming out in 2023.

15. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake

Developer: Aspyr
Publisher: Lucasfilm Games
Platforms: PlayStation 5, PC
Release date: TBA

This is the game that brought Bioware to the forefront of gaming. This is by far one of the most important and enjoyable RPGs to ever come to keyboard and mouse. And now, it’s getting a full remake. However, with the news being released, 2023 may not happen. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

14. Tom Clancy’s The Division: Heartland

Developer: Red Storm Entertainment
Publisher: Ubisoft
Platforms: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Microsoft Windows
Release date: TBA

The Division: Heartland takes place in Silver Creek, a place that has come under attack from hostile forces. You and your Division squad will have to lend a hand to prevent the “Heartland of America” from being overrun and lost.

13. Warhammer 40000: Space Marine II

Developer: Saber Interactive
Publisher: Focus Entertainment
Platforms: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PC
Release date: TBA

This is the sequel to the hit Space Marine, where once again, you’ll be a one-man wrecking crew of the Imperium tasked with bringing peace to the galaxy by any damn means necessary. I feel sorry for the Tyranid already.

12. Crysis 4

Developer: Crytek
Publisher: Crytek
Platforms: TBA
Release date: TBA

Crysis 4 will mean you get to suit up and unleash destruction on your foes. The only question, like with the previous Crysis games, is how advanced your computer needs to be to keep up with this Benchmark-making game.

11. Dead Island 2

Developer: Dambuster Studios
Publisher: Deep Silver
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 5
Release date: February 3, 2023

Not much has been shown about the Sequel to Dead Island except a ton of zombies in a new setting, with an unworried person being surrounded. I mean the guy looks to be getting ready to walk away from an explosion in the background without turning around.

10. Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria

Developer: Free Range Games
Publisher: North Beach Games
Platforms: PC
Release: 2023

Gimmli and a sect of Dwarves are hellbent on taking back their home of Moria, and they will have to face off against orcs, goblins, and whatever else may be waiting in the dark of the mountain.

9. Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora

Developer: Ubisoft
Publisher: Ubisoft
Platforms: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Microsoft Windows, Amazon Luna, Google Stadia
Release date: 2023

This game will benefit from the upcoming new James Cameron movie and people’s love of giant blue guys from the planet of Pandora. The graphics alone are going to make you want to get the game, then the story on top of it, all I will say is “drool.”

8. Redfall

Developer: Arkane Studios
Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
Platforms: Xbox Series X/S, Microsoft Windows
Release date: 2023

This is a first-person shooter in a town that is overrun by vampires. You are on a 4 man-hunting team, each with your own abilities and weapons. Sign me the hell up. The graphics and play style look amazing.

7. Baldur’s Gate 3

Developer: Larian Studios
Publisher: Larian Studios
Platforms: PC
Release date: TBA 2023

Based on the Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition ruleset, its turn-based combat should feel right at home to tabletop RPG players. Baldur’s Gate 3 takes place in a massive open world that is explorable as a solo player or co-operatively with up to three friends.

6. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

Developer: Respawn Entertainment
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Platforms: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Microsoft Windows
Release date: 2023

The sequel to the best Star Wars Game that I have ever played in my opinion. I am foaming out the mouth for this release. Cal Kestis picks up his light saber 5 years after the events of the first game and I know the sequel is going to be off the chain.

5. Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League

Developer: Rocksteady Studios
Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
Platforms: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Microsoft Windows
Release date: Spring 2023

As a team of supervillains who are forced to work together to save Metropolis from none other than the so-called good guys, the Justice League. They don’t have a choice with a bomb planted in the head, but how will they stop the likes of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and anyone else? We will have to see what the villains have up their sleeves.

4. Forspoken

Release date: January 24, 2023
Developer: Luminous Productions
Publisher: Square Enix
Platforms: PlayStation 5, Microsoft Windows

You play as Frey Holland, your average New York girl that gets transported to a foreign fantasy world. In a world where beauty is everywhere and everything wants to eat ya like a New York Pizza Pie. Frey has to use her newfound magical powers to survive.

3. Diablo IV

Developer: Blizzard Entertainment, Vicarious Visions
Publisher: Blizzard Entertainment
Platforms: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Microsoft Windows
Release date: 2023

It’s Diablo IV. Is there anything else that needs to be said? Oh instead of going after Diablo, cultists have brought the mother of monsters to the world, Lilith. Time to see if you are worthy or just another victim that doesn’t know they are dead yet.

2. Hogwarts Legacy

Release date: February 10, 2023
Developer: Avalanche Software
Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and Series S, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows
Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

Ever since the books came out people have been fantasizing about getting a letter from an owl to attend Hogwarts, now you can, well at least within a video game. This game takes place in the 1800s before the boy who lived was ever created. So which house will you join, and what will you do with your powers?

1. Starfield

Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
Developer: Bethesda Game Studios
Platform: PC, Xbox Series X|S
Released: 2023

The year is 2310, and you are about 50 light-years from Earth, humanity continues to explore the void of deep space. You join the Constellation to continue that great quest. Things won’t be easy, as humanity has only enjoyed 20 years of peace since the war between the United Colonies and Freestar Collective. So now you just have to answer a couple of simple questions, what will you do? Who will you side with? Will you stick to being an explorer, or become a hero, a space pirate, or something else? My money is on being a Space Pirate.

This concludes my list. what PC games are you looking forward to playing next year? Please feel free to let us know in the comments section below.
