19 RPGs We Want to Play in 2023

Among the best announced RPGs, above all stand out new IPs and games that no one had heard of a year ago. The genre is slowly evolving, but rest assured - there will be a few familiar faces for old-timers, too.

Gatewalkers

Gatewalkers is the first such a large production of the studio from Poznan, Poland. It remained in Early Access on Steam for a long time - this allowed the developers to collect valuable data on what could be improved. The final product is to ensure a balance between survival and cooperative hack'n'slash. And all thanks to the original mechanics of moving to other worlds - with differently working physics, weather conditions, other plants, animals and, of course, enemies.

The plot is supposed to be very simple - the goal of each player (and a maximum of four of them can take part in this adventure) is to save their own land . There's no denying that the titular skill of "walking through the gates" is to have a key impact on the fate of the expedition. And that's what is most interesting in the game.

For a small budget, the audiovisual setting looks even decent. With each subsequent patch, the world of Gatewalkers looks a little better. Thanks to the Unity engine and Photon (online gameplay), we finally managed to get a decent enough effect that the audiovisual sphere at least did not interfere with the game.

Adore is an original RPG of a completely different kind. Although the main character cannot fight, he sends previously tamed animals into battle. His bond with them is so strong that the death of one of them costs him a loss of life points. In addition, the graphics look really cute, creating the unique atmosphere of Adore .
