Another huge hope for 2023, Starfield is the Bethesda studio’s next project, usually working on The Elder Scrolls series. Here – of course – a complete change of scenery since we take the direction of space and stars, with ‘over 1000 planets’ to explore, that’s all. Clearly, Bethesda isn’t copying No Man’s Sky’s faults here – with too many randomly generated, uninteresting locations. We want the quality of the team’s writing to be consistent there! We’re looking forward to seeing all of this… in 2023, therefore.

Pandora’s Avatar Border

We end up on Avatar Frontiers of Pandora, the next video game from the famous James Cameron universe and which will soon be back in theaters. Undoubtedly, the setting is perfect for open world play, with that fertile soil, the beasts move while flying or even the Pandora people’s big feet jump everywhere. Mainly because, like any good open world, there are enough unexpected events, with nowhere to be found or even threats arriving without warning (robot-equipped animals and humans). Nice, right?
