The game launches on January 18, giving you something to dive into right at the beginning of the new year.
Black Myth: Wukong is a game that is as mystifying as its main character. There’s still so much we don’t know about the game, but based on what we’ve seen, this Souls-like about the Monkey King Sun Wukong is shaping up to be a potential candidate for Game of the Year in 2024.

I know it’s weird to see a sports game on a list like this. But when it’s the return of a series for the first time in 11 years, it’s worthy of excitement.
EA Sports College Football will feature a full-fledged dynasty mode, modern conferences, college football playoffs, and more. There’s even the possibility of having real players in a college sports game for the first time.
At this point, it’s hard to tell if there’s anticipation for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, or just a “get it over with” mentality. The game was first slated to release in 2022 before being delayed to 2023. Then, after the game was shown off to negative reactions, it was delayed again to February 2024.
The premise of the game has the Suicide Squad work with Wonder Woman to save members of the Justice League from Brainiac’s brainwashing and save Metropolis. You can play as one of four characters: Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, or King Shark. The game, which will require an always-online connection, allows you to play solo or with up to three other players.
