The Day Before

This game somewhat looks like The Last of Us, where the world is interestingly is very rich in details. Also, the combat skills look to have been derived from The Last of Us. You can play online PVP and also a Co-op.

No specific date for this action game has been revealed, but surely this game is coming out this year itself.


This open-world action game lets you explore a few new elements and has you creating a little mutant critter. In this game, a change in your physical appearances also changes your abilities and statistics. Graphically, Biomutant looks very promising.

After several delays, this game is finally coming out this year on May 25.

Dying Light 2

The delay in this game’s release now seems worth it, as the game has got a new narrative structure. It’s going to be a great game if the promises the developers made turn out to be true.

The game has still got no release date, but looking at the developments and its hype, Dying Light 2 is supposedly getting released this year.
