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.

Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn

I'm not sure exactly how to name the protagonist's opponent, but since the gods have released a whole horde of his kind in Flintlock, we can expect a really difficult game. Photo by Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn, Kepler Interactive, 2023. - 19 RPGs to play in 2023 - documentary - 2023-01-09

Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn is an action RPG with some unusual vibe. We find ourselves in a world that barely survived a magical apocalypse. Or rather a mythological one. The sleeping gods, after returning to life, decided that they did not like the intelligent civilization on their planet and threw it to the hordes of the undead. Doesn't sound optimistic, does it? Therefore, the entire atmosphere and style of the game, including the music track, are not particularly uplifting.

The strength of the game, however, is the anger and desire for revenge of the main character - Nor Vanek. As one of the rebels, she faces enemies in an unequal battle. Although it is almost impossible to kill all beings, the survivors want to close the Door of the Underworld and try to take revenge on the gods, even though they cannot predict what exactly awaits them.

The fight waged by Nor Vanek is so much easier in her version than the struggles of her kin because she is accompanied by Enki - a creature resembling a fox, who wields powerful magic. The key to winning the consecutive battles is using a combination of punches, powers and dodges, often in correlation with Enki's support. Only for the really patient ones.
