It’s hard to tell much from the teaser trailer alone but it looks like this will be an open-world game featuring plenty of shooting, driving, explosions, space exploration, and a healthy helping of alien architecture.
The developers and publishers of the game are Build a Rocket Boy (a new studio founded by former Rockstar North president Leslie Benzies), and it appears that the game will be a multiplayer, open-world, nonlinear gameplay game.
While there is currently no set release date, we do at least have a release window for some time in 2023 on all popular platforms except Nintendo Switch.
Dune Awakening looks like it will be a survival, open-world MMO set in the beautiful rolling desert landscape of Arrakis, featuring their giant worms and survivors with enchanting blue eyes.
Developed and published by Funcom, this visually stunning game has a Beta coming up that anyone can sign up for on www.dunegames.com.
There is currently no release date available, and the game is set for release on all next-gen platforms.
While this isn’t our first introduction to Hogwarts Legacy, the latest Harry Potter game being developed by Avalanche Software and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, this trailer showed us an update featuring an expansion pack for the game that is focused on Salazar Slytherin and the dark arts.
The game is expected for release on February 10th, 2023, on all major platforms including next-gen and Nintendo Switch. The Dark Arts pack will be free with the digital deluxe edition when pre-ordered.
