Platforms: PlayStation
Release date: March 4

2. Ghostwire: Tokyo

Ghostwire: Tokyo is a first-person action/horror game that ditches guns in favour of supernatural abilities for vanquishing foes. The population of Tokyo has disappeared, and the streets are now brimming with paranormal creatures and spirits from Japanese folklore. You play as Akito, a young survivor who pairs with the ghost of a rugged detective to fight through the city and save the people of this once bustling metropolis.

Players explore the streets, skyscrapers, and deep dark alleyways using a mix of stealth and devastating combat to cleanse, banish, and destroy. Progression unlocks newfound powers to suit your playstyle as you fight to the supernatural, attempting to hand Shibuya back to the living.

Platforms: PC, PS5
Release date: March 25

3. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands

Borderlands fans will find a lot to like about Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. This co-op, action RPG borrows many elements from the popular shooter but replaces the gazillions of guns with whimsy, wonder and a different type of high-powered weaponry.

Players create their multiclass hero in this first-person adventure and loot, shoot, slash through outlandish monsters and dungeons. There’s a vast overworld leading to majestic cities, dank mushroom forests, foreboding fortresses, and more. Plus, you’ll be levelling up, expanding an arsenal and learning spells along the way. The humorous adventure that is Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is taken up a notch when you consider the voice cast. We’re talking Will Arnett, Andy Samberg and Wanda Sykes, to name a few.

Platforms: PC, PlayStation, Xbox
Release date: March 25

4. Shadow Warrior 3

Drawing heavy inspiration from DOOM Eternal, Shadow Warrior 3 is a fast-paced first-person arena shooter where players “conduct a symphony of death” by mixing heavy firepower with devastating katana strikes to obliterate the demonic hordes.

Lo Wang returns for a third round of mayhem, now partnering with former nemesis Orochi Zilla on a mission to recapture a dragon and return it to the eternal prison. Armed with both blades and bullets, you will traverse the unknown to push back the impending apocalypse.

Wall run, double jump and dash through neo-feudal Japan and cackle at the many dick jokes along the way. His name is Wang, after all.

Platforms: PC, PlayStation, Xbox
Release date: March 1

5. Weird West

Weird West is a dark fantasy reimagining of the wild west where lawmakers and gunslingers share the frontier with otherworldly creatures. The action RPG features a series of intertwined high-stakes adventures through a world that reacts to the choices you make.

Everything within the fantastical world is yours to be manipulated. Use stealth to infiltrate an outlaw hideout or go guns-blazing. Built relationships with townsfolk or paint the town red for the fun of it. Just know that every choice you make has consequences. And yes, one playable character is a werewolf.

Weird West comes from WolfEye Studios, which features talent who previously worked on Dishonored and Prey. WolfEye’s debut title is Red Dead meets Lovecraft, and it’s one to keep an eye on. Weird West is included in Game Pass from day one.

Platforms: PC, PlayStation, Xbox
Release date: January 11

6. Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Nintendo Switch owners receive some love in the form of a shiny, new Kirby game. The popular pink puffball returns in Kirby and the Forgotten Land, a new 3D platformer set in a mysterious world brimming with the ruins of a past civilisation. The game carries serious Super Mario vibes and has players exploring diverse landscapes, eating and copying enemy attacks and saving cute critters from the ferocious Beast Pack.

Bring a friend along, and they take a support role as Bandana Waddle Dee, a monkey-like companion who assists in combat and collecting items. Kirby and the Forgotten Land looks to scratch that platforming itch and should help keep you busy until Nintendo unveils Mario’s next adventure.

Platform: Switch
Release date: March 25

7. Tunic

Tunic wears Zelda influences on its sleeve, chest, legs and everywhere in between. In this isometric action game, you play as a cute little fox stranded on a mysterious beach. Then, move beyond the sand to explore a hostile and intricately-connected world of shady forests, sprawling ruins, and labyrinthine catacombs while confronting ferocious monsters and colossal beasts.

The land is filled with puzzles, powerful items and long lost secrets. Upgrade your skillset as you progress through this classic Zelda-like that looks far more challenging than what you would expect from a title about a small fox on a big adventure.

Platforms: PC, Xbox
Release date: March 16
