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.

On promotional materials, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty simply impresses with visual bells and whistles. The atmosphere changes significantly depending on where we are currently, and clashes with demons are a real macabre masterpiece. What's more, the developers decided to use Chinese martial arts, rarely used in other games of this type (unless in a heavily Europeanized version).

The first promotional materials indicate the extraordinary care with which attempts were made to reflect the realities of the alternative timeline of ancient China. And it must be admitted that due to the actions of the creators, the invasion of demons during the late Han dynasty does not seem so unusual at all. Just another danger faced by the last members of the family (indirectly) and soldiers fighting for the security of the Middle Kingdom (quite directly).

The clashes are focused on the player's arcade skills. Of course, sufficiently high stats can help, but they won't replace weapon mastery. We can only activate supernatural powers when we kill enough demons and increase our confidence factor. It is worth remembering, however, that they are intended only to support the combatant, and not to replace the real struggle.
