The 6 biggest sci-fi games to look forward to in 2023
It’s a stellar year for sci-fi fans.
The coming year will see the release of some of the most anticipated games in recent memory, and 2023 is looking especially good for sci-fi fans.
Here are the 6 biggest sci-fi games to look forward to in 2023
6. Kerbal Space Program 2
After multiple delays, the space sim sequel is finally go for launch.
More than 10 years after the original, Kerbal Space Program 2 is nearing release, putting a new spin on a game that’s equal parts hardcore physics simulation and silly rocket crash generator.
Kerbal Space Program 2 is adding a ton of new features, from the ability to build colonies on alien worlds to a multiplayer mode that lets you work alongside friends or stage your very own competitive space race.
5. The Expanse
Your only chance to be as cool as Camina Drummer.
One of the first projects developed by Telltale Games since the studio shuttered then reopened, The Expanse is a prequel to the TV show of the same name starring its best character, Camina Drummer.
Along with Telltale’s signature gameplay style — making key decisions to define a branching narrative — The Expanse features third-person exploration in the zero-G environments that space-traveling scavengers like Drummer call home.
4. Dead Space
The best sci-fi horror game ever is back.
Dead Space’s spiritual successor didn’t go exactly as planned, so why not go back to the original? Unlike FF7 Rebirith, 2023’s Dead Space is a faithful recreation of the original on modern hardware.
While Dead Space’s story and creepy space vibes remain intact, its combat and graphics are getting a major overhaul to make the game more gut-wrenching and scary than ever.
3. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Cal’s quest to find a good-looking poncho continues.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivorpicks up five years after Fallen Order, with revamped Dark Souls-inspired combat to reflect Cal Kestis’ growth into a capable Jedi Knight.
Even with Cal doing his best Nathan Drake impression this time, the new characters he meets along the way already look like they’ll outshine him once again.
