A pillar of today’s modern entertainment, gaming has caught the interest of millions of fans from all over the globe. The year 2024 has lots of good news for these fans with the release of several long-awaited games. Here are some of the most popular games that will be released within the upcoming few months. Some are sequels to well established franchises and others are brand new ideas that have caught a great deal of attention.

Star Wars Outlaws

The Star Wars universe has expanded over the span of the last few decades to include many movies, series, and games; and Star Wars Outlaws, an action-adventure game set in an open world, is the newest addition to the collection. It will feature several types of combat in different settings, including space, stealth and vehicle battles. The game takes place between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, portraying several heists performed by Kay Vess and her companion Nix in the Outer Rim Territories.


Tekken 8

Seven years after its debut, one of the most iconic fighting games returns with its eighth chapter; is expected to drop on January 26th. Tekken 8 will be set six months after the events of its predecessor and will feature the final confrontation between the father Kazuya Mishima and his son Jin Kazama to end the chaos caused by their lineage. The game will primarily focus on aggressiveness, which will be rewarded, rather than defensive play, and it will introduce a new Heat gauge system. Moreover, it will maintain a number of features from Tekken 7, such as the Rage system-based attacks.


Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

Warner Bros Games intends to maintain its success with their new game Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which will be released on February 2. The game will include four playable characters including Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Harley Quinn and King Shark. It will be the first game to ever feature the Suicide Squad members as the main characters, a step that took about a decade of planning. This version of the Suicide Squad will attempt to save Metropolis and the members of the Justice League from the brainwash of Brainiac with the help of Wonder Woman.


Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

The original Final Fantasy 7 was arguably one of the greatest video games ever made. That is why it was no surprise that its reboot Final Fantasy 7 Remake was a success. Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will be the second chapter of a planned reboot trilogy and it is expected to be released on February 29th. The game will be a continuation to the events introduced in Final Fantasy 7 Remake, focusing on the journey of the principal characters seeking to end the tyranny of the Shinra Electric Power Company and defeat their elite soldier unit. On the other hand, the game will feature a more open-ended environment compared to its predecessor during real-time exploration and combat.
