Capcom has confirmed the Resident Evil 4 remake is coming in March and we could not be more excited for it. The story will follow closely to the original and you will play as Agent Kennedy who is on a mission to save the president’s daughter. After locating her in a secluded village, Kennedy finds something has gone terribly wrong there.

Sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Survivor is bringing back Cal Kestis and his trusty droid BD-1. Set five years after the events of Fallen Order, Survivor will take place around the same time as Obi-Wan Kenobi. Can Cal stay alive while being mercilessly hunted by the Empire?

We don’t have a specific release date for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 but it’s expected to arrive in 2023 nonetheless. Swing around New York City as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in this sequel, but only if you’re lucky enough to have a PS5 as the game will only be available on that console. 

Street Fighter 6 (2 June)

Street Fighter 6 will feature plenty of legacy characters as well as some new players. The game, which arrives in early June, will feature three different modes: Fighting Ground, World Tour, and Battle Hub. Fighting Ground is most like the old gameplay while World Tour is your story mode and Battle Hub is an online lobby with features still to be announced.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2023)

Based on the iconic horror film, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a lot like Dead By Daylight, but instead of a roster of famous horror icons, it’s just Leatherface’s jolly old family. You play as either one of The Slaughter Family or as a victim and your job is simply to survive and sneak out of the family compound.

Dead Space (27 January)

Another remake on our list, the new Dead Space will only improve on the already great 2008 game. Retaining the plot of the original, you play as engineer Isaac Clarke who investigates a distress signal sent by his girlfriend from a deep space mining ship. Isaac encounters a horde of mutated corpses onboard the ship and must save himself and the crew from almost certain death.
