Dredge – March thirtieth (PS5, XSX, PS4, XB1, Swap, Home windows)
Dredge is sort of actually probably the most unique title we’ve coated in 2023 to this point. It’s a horror-adjacent fishing sport with some RPG parts, which could already be sufficient to promote the sport to a lot of you. The sport’s received a grim, barely grotesque look to it, but it manages to be fairly nice to take a look at every now and then. It’s additionally simply as prone to loosen up you as it’s to spook you.
How’s this for a premise: you play as a fisherman trawling a darkish sea filled with secrets and techniques and Eldritch horrors. Your day-to-day job is to catch sea creatures (not essentially the standard sort) to promote. Make sufficient cash to improve your vessel and tools, and also you’ll end up with the power to uncover much more horrors. My favourite element is the Resident Evil 4-style stock, which means you’ll have to optimize the way you place your hauls so that you get the utmost revenue in your catches.
Dredge can be out on all current-gen consoles (and PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) and PC through Steam. Preordering it luggage you a particular rod to make the sport barely simpler at the beginning. Peep that if you happen to so fancy.
