Player 2’s 21 Most Anticipated Games Of 2024: #11-#7

Player 2's 21 Most Anticipated Games Of 2024: #11-#7

You may have recently seen that we enlisted a range of our writers the task of determining their ten most anticipated games of 2024. That gave us a lot of data to comb through, and some clear front runners. We did some work with that data and compiled this, the top 21 most anticipated games of 2024 according to the P2 writing team. 

How it worked: Each writer had to come up with their games, ranked from 10 (least) to 1 (most) in terms of their anticipation for the title. For this, a selection at 1 was worth 10 points, while a selection at 10 was worth one point (and so on). This allowed us to rank the games based on their overall score compiled from each writer’s rankings.

So with that said, let’s get into the list; starting today with positions #11 to #7

#11 - 12 Point Each

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is one of my favourite games of all time, and so the opportunity to play a remade version of the game has me incredibly excited. The humour of the original still holds up today, with an endearing level of charm that is likely to make new players explode. We’ve seen developers re-releasing classic RPGs in recent years with combat tweaks to speed things up for the modern audience, I’m curious to see what Nintendo will implement (if anything) in this case.

Another Code: Recollection

This one came as a bit of a surprise to me, but the more time passes, the more time I spend thinking about it. Trace Memory was a game I always wanted to play on the DS but never got a chance, and now it’s going to be released alongside its sequel, it feels like it’s been a long time coming. Another Code: Recollection will also release nice and early in the year, so I won’t have long to wait.

The Wolf Among Us 2

This is the second year on my list for this game, but I’m gonna keep putting it on the list until it releases because I’m so damn keen. Though the Telltale formula is now one we’re all familiar with, this is one of the games that defined the genre, and there’s something special about a well-done grisly fairy tale. Playing the first game inspired me to get into the Fables comics, and I can only assume playing the second one is going to inspire a similar amount of emotion.

#9 - 14 Points

Hades II

The only reason this isn’t higher on my list is because it is only an early access release, but even then I am super pumped to get my hands on this one. I played the original Hades right through the early access period and enjoyed every second of it. I worry that it will just be more of the same but honestly, there are worse things than repeating what is rogue-like perfection.

The Plucky Squire

Look, I just want to play this. It looks so creative and fun and clever and… and… charming! I really hope that it all comes together, because watching the trailer footage reminds me of what it feels like to be nine-years-old, and I really want that wonder not to get shattered by unresponsive controls or questionable design decisions. I am fully bought in and will likely bare teeth when the feeding-frenzy over the review copy begins.

#8 - 16 Points


From the developers that brought you Pillars of Eternity, The Outer Worlds and Fallout: New Vegas, Avowed may just be the next big RPG to scratch your itch. While Starfield does have valid criticisms concerning its questlines and a lack of ramifications, Obsidian Entertainment is renowned for making games where your choices will affect the game world and have ramifications that extend to more than a few lines of dialogue from NPCs. No release date yet but it will be on Game Pass day one so that is a good enough reason for me to check it out.

Visions Of Mana

I’ve been a Mana fan since I was 4 or 5 years old, with Secret of Mana being a massive eye-opener to what video games can be. Since then my love has continued despite Square-Enix’s own love of the IP being a bit flaky but my hopes of a serious rekindling of the love affair between Square-Enix and its classic IP, based on the spate of remasters, remakes and re-releases, was founded when Visions of Mana was revealed and it presented like everything that I’d want a new entry to look like in 2024. Not long to wait!

Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail

It will be interesting to see if the writers of Final Fantasy XIV have grown tired off ripping players hearts out repeatedly. My guess is they haven’t. As gluttons for punishment, players will queue up on patch day waiting for their chance to play the next expansion in the game, eager to find out what happens next. The most important part of Dawntrail is that clothes will now be able to be dyed two coloursThere’s also a graphical upgrade, two new jobs and a bunch of other stuff, but none of that is important. Glamour is the real end game and Final fantasy XIV Two Dyes…I mean Dawntrail, will make me a very happy Warrior of Light.
