A Plague Tale Requiem
Developed by Asobo Studio and published by Focus Home Interactive, Requiem is the direct sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence. Launched in October 2022, the game hit the market with great expectations from many players, after the somewhat surprising success of the first title.
Continuing the story of Amicia and Hugo, the duo of brothers from the previous game, the title maintains the same heavy atmosphere and melancholic tone in the plot, while expanding the gameplay in a subtle way. While stealth is still the most important thing, Amicia has new options that make combat a little more varied, with interesting mechanics being introduced.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Launched in 2019, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has become one of the great games in the space saga. Developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts, the game delivered a robust adventure in the franchise created by George Lucas, mixing metroidvania and soulslike elements.
In the adventure, players accompany Kal Kestis on a journey to stay alive as a Jedi. With the game taking place a few years after the execution of Order 66, Kal needs to meet allies, explore different planets and master his skills with the force to face various dangers.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War
As the sequel to Shadow of Mordor, Middle-earth: Shadow of War once again stars Talion and Celebrimbor in yet another action-packed adventure in the universe created by JRR Tolkien. With the return of the excellent Nemesis system, Monolith Productions’ game also offers fun and interesting combat.
With your skills, you can build your own army made up of orcs, getting stronger to face the forces of Sauron, the great villain of the saga. Killing orcs and other creatures turns out to be quite fun, while the game manages to captivate fans who want to consume more of the “expanded universe” of the famous epic fantasy work.
It Takes Two
Extremely fun and beautiful, It Takes Two is a complete package for those who want a light and relaxed adventure, despite having a plot with deep messages. Elected the best game of 2021, the title developed by Hazelight Studios and published by Electronic Arts is quite versatile, delivering many satisfying and competent mechanics.
With a striking look, the game delivers a very varied cooperative adventure, full of moments that excite players and make the game never miss a beat.
Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord
Mount & Blade: Warband had a lot of success, despite being a slightly more niche game, and now Bannerlord follows a similar path. These aren’t very popular and talked about titles, but they can provide many hours of fun if you decide to check them out.
In Bannerlord you create your character and face a medieval world with many possibilities. It is possible to be a great warrior or a diplomat. You can conquer enemy lands and regions or focus on trade if you prefer. You choose how your journey will go, which includes forming alliances, creating enmities, engaging in wars, and much more.
