Hello, and welcome to another thread full of updates and log of all games (within reason...) to be released in 2024!

 

The goal of the thread is simple:

Consolidate the general discussion and track the releases throughout the year. The previous thread started off a bit rough, but over time, the cadence evened out and it was a bit clearer (to me) how to organize and promote a conversation 🙂 So with that said...

 

Some basic guidelines:

Spoiler
  1. For starters, since we're predominately a PC crowd here, that will always be the primary focus. However, with so many different games and experiences tied to different platforms, I will keep this thread in Gaming General to avoid isolating the discussion.
  2. I will continue to track, monitor, and update the sheet (Google Sheet) and summarize large changes or updates throughout the year. Mainly when large events occur, titles are released, release dates are announced, or titles are cancelled or pushed. 
  3. If there is a major release and you would like to focus the discussion in another thread, go for it! Example: Starfield from 2023. 
  4. The previous thread and this thread, will also compare all the titles against their Metacritic score.
    1. The objective on this subject is to give you a snapshot or average consensus of any given title tracked.
    2. Metacritic or Opencritic (alternative) aren't objective. It's a summary of subjective opinions so take those scores as a general indicator if you will. I will still continue this approach with this thread and I think Metacritic works better as I can isolate reviews to the platform it was reviewed on. We all know PC gamers get the shaft with ports or other issues and I believe it's important to understand that variances against consoles, especially in context of our PC community.
    3. Since there are so many consoles, I filter in order of system availability, and then popularity, per title. E.g., A game is released on multiple platforms like PC, PS5 (PS), Xbox Series S|X (XB). I will highlight the PC score in "PC Metacritic" column and the PS5 (PS) score exclusively in the "Console Metacritic" column.
    4. However, sometimes there are rare exceptions. E.g., If a title is two separate console systems but predominately the reviews are on the less popular console (50 reviews on Series X vs. 4 on PS5) I will highlight the XB score. Make sense? Good.
  5. I will also, to the best of my ability, identify in a post below all general sales and dates of notable events throughout the year. Summer Game Fest, Gamescom, Tokyo Gameshow, Video Game Awards etc. If I missed anything, flag it, and I will update the post!
  6. Finally, and most importantly, have fun with it. I'll maintain the structure but ultimately, this only works if people participate. Otherwise, I'm just a madman in a corner updating a sheet for no one!

 

That's it from me. Enjoy and GG!

Hello,

 

This is just a reminder that I am working on a sheet. It will be up soon, hopefully by next week. It will be a live-ongoing thing so don't expect all games for 2024 to be there. It's just not possible. I've missed a few updates already this year but I wanted to flag that on Jan 18* there is an Xbox showcase (Developer Direct) and Indiana Jones is expected to be shown alongside other games. See quote below.

 

Edit: It's also worth noting in 2022, Hi-Fi Rush was announced during developer direct and was a "shadow drop". AKA a game that was released with little to no heads up. It's possible we see another "shadow drop" or alternatively, and what's rumoured, is more updates for Hi-Fi Rush (either being released on platforms or DLC). 

 

NEWS.XBOX.COM

You’re about to get an exciting look at some of the incredible games ahead with Xbox, as we present a new edition of Developer_Direct on Thursday, January 18.

Premium Platinum - Lifetime

With reference to a release scheduled later this year, specifically S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl (which I have been looking forward to)... 

 

...so i feel like i've been growing a third eye in my gut lately (note: it's not a zit--i tried squeezing it, it wouldn't pop); and I've been re-watching the HBO series Chernobyl, which I find fascinating each time I re-watch it; not only because it's very well done, but also because I was actually in the relative vicinity when the reactor blew its top back in 1986 (I was stationed at Leipheim, GE; and lived off-base in a berg called Burgau, GE--see the map that follows below the video).

 

 

Anyway, I do recall the neighbors cautioning us about eating things like locally sourced venison and/or locally grown vegetables; and I've always wondered if I'd eventually suffer any ill effects as a result of the incident (like growing a third eye in my gut).

 

...lastly, a map of where I was when the Cesium 137 was falling out of the sky follows, accompanied by a color coded list of just how much ground level radiation collected in the various areas over the period of the first year following the catastrophe:

There is an interesting doc, not sure if on a streaming service or youtube, but it went into details how native species within the contamination zone have spread radiation all across Europe. One of the examples was reindeer / deer, which I believe migrate from Ukraine to Finland. Don't quote me on that but the whole story was rather interesting. E.g., 

WWW.WIRED.COM

Long after the radiation that blanketed Europe dispersed, herders in Norway are living with the effects of the worst civilian nuclear disaster in history.

Yeah, there's plenty of that sort of content available via the 'net.

2024-01-22 - Update

 

The list is now live! (second post)

 

Now it may look sparse but throughout the week(s) it will be filled with content. I tried a new way to embed it into the forum by using the publishing function within Google Sheets. Font doesn't seem to match but it should be easier to navigate. *cracks knuckles* time to get at it 😛

 

Spoiler

 

 

A lot of games still to highlight but so far we have two large releases in 2024.

 

1. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown. It's been 14 years since the last major Prince of Persia release (2010). Metroidvania / 2D platformer style. Fast paced.

2. Palworld. Openworld Ark survival type game that strangely resembles Pokemon. Sold over 5m copies in 3 days...

 

A game worth mentioning that will be released in the next ~30 days. Pacific Drive. A "road like", it's a driving-survival game where you traverse the "exclusion zone" in the pacific north west. Looks super fun and creepy at the same time. I intend to buy this at launch (if reviews are good).

Thanks @iamjanco - ultimately, I had to redo the post on PC in dark mode to ensure the font colour was showing up correctly. For some reason, text (colour) kept defaulting to that grey. Likely due to a formatting issue when I copied / pasted some of the titles of games from another article.

2024-02-07 - February Update

 

The list is pretty much up to date with any large or notable title that has a date in 2024. If you go into the DATA tab, you'll see I have about 30-40 more titles ear marked for 2024. Once the exact date is defined, you'll see it come up in the Pivot Tables (PC, Console tabs). 

 

I'm going to try and work on a Google Sheet schedule (third post) to highlight any major events or sales throughout the year. Still playing with it so consider it a draft / constant work in progress. If you know of a title that you don't see on the list that is expected to be released in 2024, post here and let me know 🙂

 

In terms of upcoming notable releases for February, here's what to watch out for:

As a reminder, this list is not exhaustive for ALL titles in 2024. Links above or in the sheet will prioritize Steam where possible.

Quick heads up that Steam and GreenManGaming has Armored Core VI on sale which is the first time it's dropped in price since release. It didn't drop in price during the Black Friday or Winter sales in 2023 for context. Various other retailers are doing larger sales for both lunar new year (year of the dragon btw) or valentine's day. Including larger publisher sales like Rockstar and Bandai Namco (Steam) or ABK on Battle . net. 

 

Keep those Wishlist's up to date people 🙂
