The second one is called “Missing Colonists”, where you will solve a series of puzzles to learn more about a previous colony that had lived on Mars. The third one is called “The Zephyr”, where you will blast off to The Zephyr shuttle orbiting Mars and set off on a daring journey. The price of this game is $29.99 and is available now.

This game will feature a lot of newer tracks, such as the new track in Miami, the Kyalami circuit in South Africa, and Circuit Hakone in Japan. It will also feature a lot more cars as well. So far, this game is said to be the most immersive racing game ever made. In some races, you can expect poor weather, so players will have to be very cautious if they plan to win.

This is a strategy game where players must go through a series of challenges to save a once peaceful land from the dreadful piglins taking over.

Players will also be able to build their own base just like the original game. Online multiplayer and co-op will be available, and it is rumored that players will be able to compete with friends in minigames.

The sequel we have all been waiting for is finally here and will be released on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. Unlike Deliver Us Mars, players will be very confused about the story if they haven’t already played the first Alan Wake. Alan Wake 2 will be a survival horror game in which he will still venture through the small town involved in the first Alan Wake to find more clues to what led to his Wife’s disappearance. From what the developers have told us, they have spent several years on this game and expect it to be an absolute masterpiece, and from the trailer, it looks like it will be exactly what they said it would.

Arriving February 23rd is Sons of the Forest. which is a survival horror game that will only be available on PC. This is a sequel to The Forest, where the main character tries to survive from monsters after a plane crash. The story for this game takes place right after the events of The Forest.

On the adventure, players will fight the mutated humans and find a wide variety of weapons to protect themselves. Unlike The Forest, players will be able to craft items and build things such as campfires and create and design their own cabin. Sons of the Forest will include an online co-op. Developers announced that their AI system will be much more complex than their first game. The new AI system will include players having to deal with their characters hunger and mental state, which can affect your actions negatively if too low.
