2023 was a very good year for video games, with banners like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Baldur's Gate 3, Marvel's Spider-Man 2, Diablo IV, Super Mario Bros. Wonder and - just a few days ago - usual Alan Wake 2. After a weak 2022, we have been eating very well lately. But it was also one of the most disastrous periods of game company consolidation in recent history. It is impossible to say what exact joys or horrors await the wonderful year 2024, but we can at least prepare for a lot of exciting video games.

Star Wars: Dark Forces (Remaster)

Platforms: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Switch, Windows

Release Date: February 28

After Doom's debut in December 1993, almost every 3D computer game was labeled a "Doom clone", such was its level of influence. However, it wasn't easy to call LucasArts' 1995 Star Wars first-person shooter Dark Forces a Doom clone, as it was unapologetically modeled directly after id Software's megahit. What was unusual was how it improved upon Doom at times, making it one of the most memorable shooters of the pre-3D boost era.

Over the decades, fans have struggled to produce software that would make Dark Forces easily playable on today's PCs, along with quality of life improvements, etc. It wasn't until last December that The Force Engine finally hit its stride, and soon, the retro-remastering gurus at Night Dive Studio are looking to bring this fun and influential classic Blaster to all major consoles.

Homeworld 3

Platforms: Windows

Release Date: February 2024

Homeworld 3, the first main series of the popular real-time strategy space game series in 20 years, was first announced in 2019. After that, we have two great gameplay trailers and a delayed announcement. Yes, Homeworld 3 was one of a number of big games pushed back to 2022. At the time, Homeworld 3's developers said it pushed the game's release date back to avoid a meltdown and "make a commitment to quality audio and sustainability." Now Homeworld 3 is expected to be released sometime in February this year.

Shadow of the Ninja Reborn

Platforms: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, Windows

Release Date: TBD

The Tengo Project cannot fail. Made out of veterans from 16-bit powerhouse Natsume’s glory days, Tengo's authentic revamps of Wild Weapons, Pocky and Rough, and most as of late The Ninja Heroes exhibited an amazing ability for reproducing the best parts of these exemplary games while stretching out and improving them to exploit present day progressions. So, many fans fairly gasped with delight a few months ago when the team’s next project came to light: a complete reimagining of Natsume’s 1990 NES co-op sleeper hit Shadow of the Ninja. The video above will let you know significantly more than any expressions of mine could convey.

So, here are some lists of the best game that will be launched this year or upcoming game releases in 2024. Just like last year, the video game industry in 2024 will be full of exciting games that are either sequels, remakes or new games. Are there any games we didn’t mention that you’re hyped about for next year? If so, be sure to sound off in the comment section.
