Originally announced as Rainbow Six Quarantine, Extraction is a co-op spin-off to Siege that sees players working together to defeat parasitic aliens called the Archaeans.

Designed for up to 3-player teams, gameplay revolves around infiltrating locations overrun with aliens and completing various tasks before escaping.

Missions, referred to as Incursions, will range from collecting biosamples to gathering intel, all while exploring interconnected sub-maps with randomly assigned objectives.

Players can choose from a pool of 18 operators based on Siege characters, each with their own arsenal of weapons and gadgets to combat the alien threat.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human is a first-person action RPG set after the events of the first game and centers on a completely new protagonist.

Aiden Caldwell is an infected survivor who uses his superb dexterity and combat prowess to gain allies and constantly escape the clutches of the undead. 

The game features streamlined parkour traversal complemented by interactive environments that let you swing from ropes and ride on the roofs of vehicles.

This time around, Techland is including more player-choice, promising to deliver a dynamic open-world that reacts to your actions and evolves throughout the story.

PlayStation exclusive Horizon Forbidden West will expand upon the mysterious world introduced by its predecessor in hopes of dazzling both PS4 and PS5 owners.

The sequel includes a host of graphical and gameplay improvements over Horizon Zero Dawn, including new water traversal sections,

Our protagonist Aloy returns, this time searching for more answers that will inevitably lead her to the biggest challenges she’s ever faced.

Considering Horizon has always stood out for its unique interpretation of a post-apocalyptic world, we’re eager to see what lies beyond the forbidden west. 

From the same team who brought us Absolver comes Sifu, another action game with hand-to-hand combat modeled after Kung Fu fighting techniques.

In it, you play as a gifted yet outnumbered fighter on a mission to hunt down the assassins who killed their family in cold blood.

To even the odds and take control of fights, you’ll have to make clever use of your surroundings and use objects, weapons, windows, and ledges against your enemies.

As you progress, you’ll unlock new skills and strengthen both your body and mind through practice and a yet-to-be-explained aging system.

Long shrouded in mystery, Elden Ring‘s appearance at E3 2021 came as a relief for fans who have been eager to learn more about From Software’s next open-world action RPG.

Aside from its dark fantasy lore being penned by George R.R. Martin and Hidetaka Miyazaki’s role as director, we’ve also learned more about how the game will play.

Elden Ring’s combat draws inspiration from previous From Software games, namely the Souls series, but with a bit more verticality akin to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

There’s also a horse you can ride throughout the open world, seemingly even during battles, and it can jump really high.

Little Devil Inside is a visually striking action RPG with survival elements and a distinct cartoony art style that adds a surreal quality to the game’s overall appearance.

It’s made by South Korean developer Neostream, who kickstarted the game back in 2015 and interestingly enough, originally planned to release it for the short-lived Nintendo Wii-U.

In it, you play as a brave adventure on a quest to save the world by killing off powerful arch-demons.

The game features a semi-open world filled with side activities to explore when you need a break from the main path.

Taking a look at the teaser trailer for Stray, it’s clear indie developer BlueTwelve found the perfect match in publisher Annapurna Interactive.

Stray casts you as an adorable feline living in a cyberpunk-inspired city where humans appear to have been replaced by robots.

The cat can be seen wearing a glowing backpack, suggesting it serves some bigger purpose in the game’s story.

Of all the random indie game genres that get announced, a futuristic cat simulator is definitely at the top of our list.

GigaBash is an upcoming arena fighter from Malaysian indie studio Passion Republic Games where up to four players duke it out as one of many different kaiju fighters.

The game features a zoomed-out, top-down camera reminiscent of games like Battlerite, though its premise is a lot closer to classic kaiju brawlers like Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters!

However, instead of slow lumbering monsters, GigaBash’s fighters are surprisingly nimble, making for fast and chaotic brawls complete with over-the-top attacks and transformations.

No word on a release date yet, but we’re already in love with the game’s cartoony yet detailed 3D visuals.

In Hazel Sky, you take on the role of a young engineer tasked with overcoming the challenges that await him on an abandoned island.

Your journey sees you exploring every inch of the island in search of spare parts that can be combined to create mechanically dazzling machines.

The goal is to build a device that will allow you to escape the island and make it back home in one piece, though we’re counting on plenty of twists and turns along the way.

Despite Hazel Sky’s mechanics-driven premise, it’s story also shows a lot of promise and we’re eager to learn more about its main protagonist Shane.

Boundary is an upcoming competitive first-person shooter set in outer space.

The best way to describe it is like Call of Duty in zero gravity, complete with an assortment of guns and maps to face off against other players.

Firefights are guaranteed to be a lot more intense since there’s no solid ground to cling to in the heat of battle.

You will, however, have a grappling hook and a host of special abilities, some of which we assume can benefit traversal.

All signs point towards Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga being a pivotal entry in the long-running Lego game franchise.

The upcoming title plans on adapting all nine episodes of the Star Wars saga for modern consoles and high-resolution displays.

So far, we know it will feature fully-voiced dialogue and allow players to complete any of the episodes in whichever order they choose.

Given the success of the original games and the rise in quality of more recent entries, we’re confident The Skywalker Saga will be a great time.

Platinum Games is partnering with Square Enix once again to deliver a new action RPG called Babylon’s Fall.

The latest trailer suggests the game will bring players along for an epic fantasy adventure spanning multiple in-game generations.

It’s currently unclear when and where Bablyon’s Fall takes place.

However, the presence of knights, demonic enemies, and a massive tower suggests there may be a connection to the mythical Tower of Babel from the Book of Genesis.

Originally planned to release in 2018 and then later 2019, Atomic Heart has had one of the more interesting development stories, with rumors suggesting it may not even be the same game anymore.

Categorized as a “first-person shooter with RPG elements,” the game is well into the process of development at studio Mundfish, a Russian-based indie game studio.  

Evoking memories of sci-fi staples like BioShock and Fallout, Atomic Heart takes place in an alternate reality where the Soviet Union’s research has led to a technical revolution.

Players assume control of a Soviet KGB officer tasked with infiltrating a secret facility that’s gone radio silent.
