The Sinking City 2 Is Coming And It Looks Spooky As Heck

Another Big Look At Tales of Kenzera: Zau

Surgent Studios and EA Originals are preparing to launch this one on April 23rd, as as it gets nearer we’re treated to a new gameplay showcase. Everything revolves around its gameplay-altering Sun and Moon masks and if the recent demo was any indication it’ll offer up some exciting level designs and gameplay moments.

Chucky Is Coming To Roblox

Griefville: Survive the Nightmare! is a chilling interactive experience coming to Roblox today. Not sure how the Chucky and Roblox crowds intersect but it’s neat anyway.

Creatures of Ava Sounds Like The Anti-Palworld

Inverge Studios’ newest title is described as a “creature saver” where you’ll work towards the conservation of the wildlife on an alien planet with an overarching goal to save the world from a life-consuming infection.

Monster Jam Showdown Sure Is A Monster Jam Game

Fang around in iconic monster trucks like Megaladon, El Toro Loco, and Grave Digger when this one launches at some point in 2024. It actually looks like fun, I don’t know.

I’m Pretty Into The Alters

This one’s described as having a “unique” blend of adventure, survival, and base-building elements, which doesn’t sound all that unique of a blend in the current landscape but I’m intrigued nonetheless. It looks like a cool, emotional sci-fi journey.

A Look At The First Berserker: Khazan’s Visceral Combat

This one looks brutal, combat-focused and stylish as hell. It’s a “hardcore” action RPG based on the Dungeon & Fighter franchise, but unfortunately no release window or even year as of yet.

Frostpunk 2 Is Coming To PC Game Pass

Another one from 11-Bit Studios, and a hugely-anticipated sequel. Frostpunk 2 is launching for PC on July 24th, 2024 and will be available on PC Game Pass.

Sleight of Hand Looks Magical

A slick-as-hell amazing cinematic trailer introduced this third-person “espionage action game” which features witches, cursed cards and stormy cities. Basically everything you could want.
