While many games are being released in 2024, many are RPGs, whether tactical, action, or traditional. As it happens, there’s a bunch of us who love some RPGs. As such, we’ve created The Outerhaven’s Most Anticipated RPGs of 2024, which includes titles that will be released in 2024.
Please enjoy and let us know if we missed an RPG you’re looking forward to in the comments.
Kevin: Dragon’s Dogma 2 is an overdue follow-up to the cult 2010 Capcom adventure game with the same name. With the Dark Arisen expansion coming out a few years later and the release of the last-gen port of the same game in 2017, fans have eagerly awaited a new entry worldwide. Capcom’s short-lived Dragons Dogma Online only hit Japan some years after the original. Dragon’s Dogma’s rent-a-party system gave players a bit of a connection to each other through their NPC helpers called Pawns. Pawns give players outside insight into other journeys. Pawns would apply their knowledge from other adventures through chatter, hints, or fighting against certain foes.
Capcom has promised a map double the size, the Beastren race, new monsters, new classes, and destructive environments to help or hinder our heroes. For instance, while fighting a Cyclops, a player could cause a flood if they spotted a leak in a mountain. Seeing the environment manipulations adds a new depth we haven’t seen much of in Action RPGs since Scarlet Nexus. I got excited when I saw some of those! Bring back Into Free, too, please!
Like A Dragon: Infinite Wealth
William: The lovable protagonist from Like a Dragon, Ichiban Kasuga, returns in a direct sequel that will pack more action, a great story, and… Kazuma Kiryu? What’s he doing here? Unlike the other Yakuza or Like a Dragon game, this title will also take place in Hawaii, as Ichiban Kasuga searches for his long-lost mother, among other things. This will be the longest Like a Dragon game, according to RGG studio head Masayoshi Yokoyama, who calls this a “Monster Class” video game. Meaning that the game won’t be able to be beaten as fast as Like a Dragon was. And that’s great news for fans. Not to mention all those arcade games we’ll get to play.
