Game of the Year Awards 2022 - Most Promising RPG

by Frank "HiddenX" Wecke, 2023-01-08

Here are the games our readers look forward to most in 2023 - many of them were already in the list for 2022: 

Gamers' Choice: Baldur's Gate III

The Baldur's Gate series is legendary among CRPG fans. Larian tries to revive it and already started a long Early Access phase. It will be their first game in which the story background is not created by themselves. But after the two hits Divinity: Original Sin I & II we think the new game is in good hands.


Gamers' Runner Up: Starfield

Starfield is advertised as "Skyrim in Space" by Bethesda - enough to get many open-world fans excited.


Gamers' Third Place: Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader

Owlcat Games next RPG Rogue Trader uses the Warhammer 40,000 setting:

"Set in the Koronus Expanse, a little-charted and perilous region of space, this backwater sector is rife with opportunities for explorers and adventurers alike. As a Rogue Trader, you will traverse incredible distances in your giant voidship as you chart this cluster of planets."
Sounds interesting!
