9. State of Decay 3 - TBD (PC, Xbox Series X|S)

State of Decay 3 is the third installment in the series, and it is likely to be the biggest one to date once it is released due to Microsoft's purchase of the company in 2018.

Nothing has been revealed since the announcement teaser, but given that the second game was already incredible and had a solid foundation with constant updates even to this day, the third game can only get better.

State of Decay 3 will be ranked higher if more information about the game becomes available, but for now, it will remain in this position as one of the most anticipated survival games to be released.

8. Wild West Dynasty - February 16, 2023 (PC)

We don't see the wild west setting in video games very often, but it looks like we'll get one this year with Wild West Dynasty, which is set to release on February 16, 2023.

The emphasis in Wild West Dynasty appears to be on the building aspect and survival as you build your own dynasty in the game. It's a mix of RPG, city-building, and simulation that can be quite ambitious but will be fantastic if done correctly.

There are numerous missions to complete, as well as exploration in the vast world of Wild West Dynasty, and, of course, building your settlement, where you can assign workers to do tasks for you.

7. Palworld - 2023 (PC, Xbox Series X|S)

Palworld is an upcoming open-world survival crafting game in which players will be able to discover, befriend, and even collect various creatures encountered in the game's vast world. In this game, the creatures are referred to as "Pal," which has a nice ring to it.

Surprisingly, it has a cute visual style, but it can be brutal as you fight monsters to survive and explore the world. Another feature of Palworld is the ability to design your own buildings, and you can actually assign chores to your "Pals," such as gardening or even building your planned structure.

Furthermore, multiplayer is available in Palworld, allowing you to go on an adventure with your friends or battle and trade with them.

6. Wanderlost - TBD (PC)

Wanderlost may not appear to be a zombie survival game at first glance, but it is, and based on what we currently know, it can be quite enjoyable.

To begin with, the world is procedurally generated, which adds a roguelite element to the game that has been proven to work well in survival games because it does not become repetitive quickly. Players will be tasked with gathering resources, crafting weapons, and even constructing bases to defend against zombie attacks.

Looting, farming, and fishing are among the other activities available in this game. Furthermore, it has RPG mechanics, which means that as you chop your way through the game by doing tasks and killing zombies, you will earn levels and unlock perks.


Gather resources, and produce items that will help you survive your battles against the zombies

5. Nightingale - TBD (PC)

Nightingale is essentially an open-world survival game set in a fantasy world, which means you'll be encountering bizarre creatures. You can travel through various realms until you reach the city of Nightingale.

As a full-fledged PvE game, players will be able to enjoy this game on their own or in co-op with friends. As you discover schematics, you can gather resources, craft weapons and items, and even upgrade them to have enchanted elements. Another important aspect of Nightingale is its building and management. As you construct structures to create a town, you will be able to hire workers to automate production as you assign them tasks, all while exploring more of the world.

Furthermore, you can travel realm by realm, and you can slightly influence how it is generated based on your Realm Cards, which is a big factor in the game's exploration.


Fight magical creatures and find a way to go back home

4. Frostpunk 2 - TBD (PC)

Frostpunk 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed survival game, and if you're looking for a harsh city-builder with difficult challenges, this game is for you.

New challenges await you as you strive to manage your metropolis and alleviate your society's ongoing suffering. It's all about making decisions and figuring out how to help your city weather the storm.

3. The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria - Q2 2023 (PC)

Any game even remotely related to The Lord of the Rings will always be met with high expectations. The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria, a very unique game tied into licensed media, should live up to the hype.

The game focuses on dwarves, and you can play with friends to make gathering resources, building your base, and fighting enemies that you will encounter as you explore the procedurally generated environments easier.

The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria is a survival game with a focus on base building and resource management, as well as the ability to craft enchanted items and, of course, create your own unique character in the game.

Sons of the Forest is an open-world survival game with a horror twist, as the game's main enemies are cannibals and mutated grotesque monsters.

Build defenses and traps to keep cannibals at bay, then craft weapons to aid in the construction of a cabin, weapons, and other items. Seasons change in the Sons of Forest, making it necessary to store meat and resources.

If you find it difficult to survive, invite your friends to join you because it also supports co-op gameplay.

1. Stalker 2: Heart of Chornobyl - December 2023 (PC, Xbox Series X|S)

Number one is none other than S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl, which is the pinnacle of a survival game that focuses on post-apocalyptic suspense while attempting to meet basic needs like hunger, sleeping, and radiation effects.

The story is non-linear, so each story is unique as you progress through it, and they boast of advanced AI systems that will challenge both new and veteran players. They also promise mod support to expand the game universe, as well as a multiplayer mode that will be added as post-launch content, allowing for solo playthroughs before finally playing with friends.
