Most Anticipated Games of March 2024

We’ve compiled a regular selection of games for you, this time focusing on the releases of March. The list includes several major and widely discussed projects, as well as a couple of less noticeable ones. There’s also room for “dark horses” that could either turn out to be March’s gems or pass unnoticed by the broader audience. Games are listed according to their release dates.

1. The Thaumaturge (also known as θαυματουργός)

Releases on March 4 for PC.

The Thaumaturge resembles a genre mix, where something “XCOM-like” coexists with a touch of the early Syberia parts. The Thaumaturge doesn’t boast high-tech features, but perhaps it will touch the soul strings with something less tangible than graphics.

According to its description, The Thaumaturge is an isometric role-playing game with a deep storyline and complex moral dilemmas set against the backdrop of 20th century Warsaw. In this world, there exist otherworldly beings called salutors, visible and revealable only to thaumaturges — those who can perform miracles.

In The Thaumaturge, players can expect detective investigations, decisions leading to certain consequences — not always convenient, not always successful. And, of course, there will be plenty of “not of this world”.

2. Expeditions: A MudRunner Game

Releases on March 5 for PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X/S, Nintendo Switch.

Expeditions: A MudRunner Game comes from the developers of another off-road simulator, SnowRunner. SnowRunner is quite popular, but Expeditions takes gamers on a slightly different path.

While SnowRunner’s main goal was to deliver cargo in regions with total impassability, Expeditions sets players the task of conducting scientific expeditions somewhere in the USA and Central Europe. The maps promise to be expansive and open for thorough exploration, but only after the player completes the main mission objectives.

The gameplay mechanics will be refined towards variety, adding “scientific tools” and ways to get stuck in some impassable thicket. Also, in Expeditions: A MudRunner Game, you need to build your base, and at some point, you will be allowed to hire assistants from NPCs.

3. The Outlast Trials

Releases on March 5 for PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X/S, previously in early access.

The Outlast Trials has been almost a year in early access status, with the release of the final version of the horror game coming in March. Based on current evaluations of the Red Barrels project, fans of the series and the genre should be satisfied.

Storywise, The Outlast Trials is a prequel to the first two games of the series and tells about inhumane experiments during the Cold War. It’s much more interesting to play in the company of three other gamers, each of whom has unique abilities and skills, but it’s also possible to go through The Outlast Trials solo.

The starting point in The Outlast Trials is set in 1959, unfolding in the secret complex of the Murkoff Corporation, consisting of tangled and interconnected rooms and spaces. The prisoners-“volunteers” located here must pass tests and survive. Whether they manage to do so or not is another question.

The developers emphasize that the new game is not a sequel to the first two Outlast games but a standalone story.

5. Dragon’s Dogma 2

Releases on March 22 for PC, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5.

This epic fantasy single-player action-RPG is poised to be a worthy sequel to the first part, released in 2012. The game world has grown four times compared to the original, with new character classes and monsters added.

The main character, the Arisen, will have an appearance bestowed by the player (the character is fully customizable, not just in terms of “exterior”. Capcom constantly reminds us of this). “Pawns”, mysterious otherworldly beings, will join in the journey. They have been significantly “tweaked” (as has the entire gameplay) using realistic physics, artificial intelligence, and the RE Engine.

The seamless game world is divided into two main regions — the kingdoms of Gransys and Lestania, “parallel” to the world of the first Dragon’s Dogma, which are in geopolitical opposition.

6. Rise of the Rōnin

Releases on March 22 for PS5.

Somehow a competitor to Dragon’s Dogma 2, but with a smaller audience due to the limited number of platforms. Rise of the Rōnin is being developed by Team Ninja, known for projects like Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, Nioh, and Dead or Alive.

In Rise of the Rōnin, the process will be maximally tied to medieval Japanese culture and its inhabitants — as the average gamer probably imagines them: a sorrowful main character, oppressed by thoughts of revenge and his difficult fate as a masterless warrior.

The arsenal will borrow from the late Edo period and the Boshin War, promising a non-linear storyline, moral dilemmas requiring decisions that affect the attitude of key characters towards the main hero, and world exploration.

7. Princess Peach: Showtime!

Releases on March 22 for Nintendo Switch.

8. South Park: Snow Day!

Releases on March 26 for PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.

9. Open Roads

Releases on March 28 for PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X/S, Nintendo Switch.


Biomorph releases on March 4 for PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and NS. A challenging Metroidvania with puzzles to solve and survival elements.

As Dusk Falls is a narrative adventure that was released for PC and Xbox in 2022 and will become available on PlayStation on March 7.

Horizon Forbidden West, a former PlayStation exclusive, will be released for PC on March 21.
