Dark Horses and Unexpected Video Game Hits Coming in 2023

Diablo 4, Starfield – these will be the big hits of 2023. But the world of games is not only triple-A certainties. These less hyped titles can sometimes turn out to be great. So, here's a list of those less obvious, potential smash hits of 2023.

Nightingale

Nightingale, Inflexion Games, 2023

  1. Release date: 2023
  2. Genre: survival FPP
  3. Developer: Inflexion Games
  4. Platform: PC

What will Nightingale be about?

Nightingale is an online FPP survival game. The story takes place in a magical world where portals connecting different lands suddenly disappear. The heroes wander in search of their home – the eponymous city of Nightingale – sometimes finding themselves in dark labyrinths, other times in beautiful locations where danger may lurk anyway. The whole thing has a slightly steampunk atmosphere that combines the Victorian era with magic. You will be able to play both alone and in cooperation.

Why is it worth the wait?

Who knows, maybe the biggest incentive for players who like science is the fact that one of the NPCs that can enter our team is going to be... Marie Curie! There will also be other historical figures with their unique personalities, which is supposed to be one of the attractions. It's also worth noting that the project is being supervised by veterans from BioWare, and the game is being ported to Unreal Engine 5, which will provide it with an even nicer setting. Survival with Marie? This hasn't happened yet!
