Welcome to the series that discusses the most important upcoming releases on Steam. After the spring sale ended, developers and publishers rushed to release their games on the market. In the coming days, fans of strategy games, adventures, and games with hand-painted graphics will have many reasons to be pleased.

The premiere of the week is Millennia (March 26, 2024)

Millennia is expected to be one of the most important premieres of the week. It's an extensive historical 4X strategy game, designed as Paradox's answer to Sid Meier's Civilization series. The game will allow us to lead one nation for 10,000 years.

The game includes a unique turn-back mechanic that lets you fix mistakes and eliminates the need to create new saves constantly.

Between Horizons

One of the most interesting premieres of the week promises to be Between Horizons, a new adventure game from DigiTales studio, known for the warmly received game Lacuna (92% positive reviews on Steam).

The game will allow you to become a security officer on board a spaceship in the middle of a century-long expedition to an alien world. The game will focus on detective elements and provide a high level of freedom in gameplay and a non-linear storyline. We will gather evidence and identify the culprits in each investigation on our own, and the game will enable us to make incorrect decisions, compelling us to confront their repercussions.

This week, the early access of Palia will come to an end and at the same time, the game will finally debut on Steam (previously it was available on Epic Games Store).

It's a relaxing life simulator focused on multiplayer gameplay. Its early version was warmly received - in the Epic Games Store it has an average rating of 4.5/5 stars.

Sentry (early access)

Today, Sentry will be released in early access. It's a promising FPS game where we have to protect a spaceship from alien forces attempting to board it. Compared to other games of this genre, the title is distinguished by the non-linearity of the campaign. If our character dies, they will be replaced by another one, and failing to defend a certain section of the ship won't result in having to start the game over, but it will affect the further course of the campaign.

Seven Skies to Paradise

Seven Skies to Paradise is a beautiful arcade game with hand-painted graphics in which we will use an aircraft to explore the sky above the ruins of human civilization. The influence of wind on flight is expected to be an intriguing element. The wind's direction will affect the airship's speed - the machine will slow down if we try to fly against the wind.

Suzerain: Kingdom of Rizia

Fans of the warmly received strategy game Suzerain (with 93% positive reviews on Steam) are eagerly counting down the days to the premiere of the expansion Kingdom of Rizia.

The title is produced by Spiderweb Software, which has been developing such games for 30 years.
