23 New Upcoming PVE Games of 2023


Table of Contents(Hide)(Show)

Many games try to “up the ante” in a variety of ways and means, and it doesn’t always mean making the AI together or new modes of gameplay. It sometimes means putting you against the environment as well as other players and seeing who survives.

#23 Wild Hearts

Platform: PC February 16, 2023
Release Date: PS5 XSX|S February 17, 2023

Steam | Playstation | Xbox

In the world of Wild Hearts, there are beasts known as Kemono that went from being docile to being aggressive. You’ll play as a hunter who can take them down via ancient technology. But that doesn’t mean you have to fight them alone!

You can join other people’s hunts or have them join yours through cross-play! That will give you more freedom to battle these beasts in a meaningful way because the monster won’t likely be focusing on you all the time.

You can also craft strategies to help take these massive monsters down. So don’t be afraid to hook up with others to get the job done.

#22 Ripout

Platform: PC XSX|S PS5
Release Date: 2023

When humanity is on the last limb, a safe haven is the only thing that matters. So players will be going through this FPS horror game in search of a better life. Alien mutated creatures roam the galaxy, and our protagonist seeks any resources to help them last a bit longer. To do so, players will need to venture through seemingly abandoned spaceships. Collect loot and fight off whatever mutated creature pops up along the way. Will you be able to survive the nonstop onslaught of attacks as you seek a sanctuary for the last of our species, or be another victim of this alien plague?

#21 Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor

Platform: PC
Release Date: 2023

If you enjoyed Deep Rock Galactic, an upcoming spin-off game is in the works. This is an auto-shooter where players go through Planet Hoxxes, blasting away at all the different bugs and enemies that come scurrying your way in search of precious goods. Here you’ll be completing a series of missions and carefully plotting out your route to reach an extraction point with your loot safely intact. So far, we know that it’ll be available through early access when this game comes out initially. But it does look like there will be quite a bit of content available right out of the gate. For instance, this includes over thirty weapons, ten enemy types, three bosses, and up to five biomes. But as the developers continue to work on the game, more content and features will be implemented. So get ready for this top-down PvE shooter when it drops later this year. 

#20 Synced: Off Planet

Platform: PC
Release Date: August 2023

Synced: Off Planet puts players into a post-apocalyptic world where a region of this world has been sealed off with deadly creatures roaming within it. However, the riches found within it might prove too significant to ignore. Players will venture into this wasteland in search of fortune in this third person shooter. However, you’ll deal with deadly beasts and potential rival squads seeking to obtain whatever goods might be uncovered. Fortunately, this game will be free-to-play, so you can, at the very least, give this roguelite shooter a chance when it launches later this summer.

One where the evolutionary path of the island is much different from the world we’re from. For example, you’ll find Neanderthals, you’ll find curses, and you’ll find lots of dangers.

Now, you’ll have to go to the island yourself, survive it and its habitants, and learn more about the projects that were going on in this cursed place. Play with your friends or online allies and see if you can last, it’s not a guarantee though, so make sure you’re ready.

  • Release date: February 28, 2023
  • Developer: Bungie Inc.
  • Publisher: Bungie Inc.

Destiny 2 as a whole has been one of the games of the current generation that truly embodies all that is PVE gameplay. Because players can go and dive into the story of the title, they can go and fight other players on a dime, or they can team up with them and partake in raids. There’s a lot to do in here.

With the upcoming Destiny 2 Lightfall DLC though, you’ll have even more to do as you explore new places like a Cyberpunk city over on Neptune, and deal with threats both old and new as you try and stop the war that is coming.

Or, is it already too late?

#5 Sons of the Forest

Tom Clancy’s The Division Heartland was detailed a bit more just recently, and now we know more about this new entry in the expanding franchise.

This time around you won’t be in a big city area like New York or Washington D.C. Rather, you’ll be in a small town in the middle of America known as Silver Creek. This place is being corrupted by various forces who wish to rot the United States from the inside out. You CANNOT let that happen.

So team up with your fellow Division soldiers and then strike out against these foes. Expose them in various modes of combat and then showcase why The Division truly goes wherever they’re needed.

Made by Rocksteady, the team behind the Arkham Trilogy, the world has been terrorized by the Justice League after they’ve been brain controlled. Now, the only ones to stop them are the four main members of the Suicide Squad. Nothing could possibly go wrong with this, right?
