PC RPG for 2014
 
I couldn't find a list of coming PC/Mac RPG, so here a first draft and thank you for any help.

I also added a list for turn based strategy game. And for the tags meaning it's explained at bottom of the post.

The RPG list includes for each game a mention of Kickstarter, Early Access, Ex Early Access, or nothing. It means:
- Kickstarter: Used successful Kickstarter with or without Early Access.
- Early Access: Uses Early Access but not successful Kickstarter.
- Ex Early Access: Was an Early Access without successful Kickstarter, not anymore an Early Access because released.
- Didn't used neither successful Kickstarter nor Early Access.

I - RPG

Some numbers :-)
81 RPG including 48 on Mac
13 RPG released including 9 on Mac
28 used a Kickstarter, 14 use/used Early Access
41 Real Time, 34 Turn Based, 3 Real Time with Pause, 3 Dungeon Master like

Legend for the RPG list:
A = Action during fights
AP = Real Time With Pause
TB = Turn Based during fights.
DML = Dungeon Master like, ie real time but the 4 cardinal directions and square based
RL = Turn Based Rogue like
RLA = Real Time Rogue like
RLP = Real Time with Pause Rogue like
X = I don't know (haven't understood, lol)

S = Single Character
P = Party, more or less

ISO = ISO, true, 3D, more top down, 2D from above
FP = First person point of view
FB = From behind point of view
SCR=Scroll

MAC = Mac release clearly planned but perhaps not in 2013
mac = Mac release possible, meaning most probably none (either the game is a success then the developers don't bother with Mac, either it's a failure then they can't work on the Mac version).

II - TURN BASED STRATEGY GAMES (PLUS SOME TOWER DEFENSE LIKE)
覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧-覧-覧-

Turn Based Strategy and Tower Defense games released (list done the 18 March)
覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧覧
Star Commander (4X - MAC)
Disciples 3: Reincarnation (MM)
TowerMadness 2 (TD - MAC)

Planed for 2014, a short list:
覧覧覧覧覧覧
Worlds of Magic (MM - MAC)
Age of Wonders III (MM - MAC)
Warhammer 40K Armageddon (SSW)
Horizon (4X)
Warlock 2: the Exiled (MM)
Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft (CG - MAC)
Lords of Discord (SSW - MAC)
Defence Grid 2 (TD)
At The Gates (4X - MAC)
Dungeon of the Endless (TD - MAC)
Star Lords (4X)
Aerena - Clash of Champions (SSG - MAC)
March of War (SSG - MAC)
Warhammer 40K: Spacewolf (CG)
Endless Legend (4X - MAC)

Antisquad (SSG - MAC)
StarDrive 2 (4X - MAC)
M.O.R.E. (4X - MAC)
Frozen Endzone (SSG)
Steam Squad (SSW - MAC)

Legend for the Turn Based Strategy Games list:
MAC : Mac release done or almost sure.
mac : possible but not certain Mac release.

Don't put too much faith into the sub genre tags I give:
4X : More or less related to 4X games which means from Civilization to Master of Orion.
MM : More or less related to a Heroes of Might & Magic approach, or Age of Wonders.
TRPG : Tactical or Strategy game but with a large part of RPG elements.
SWG : Streamlined Wargame, not meaning no depth but typically with a higher focus on ease of use and appeal than pure realism or complexity.
SSG : Streamlined Strategy game not related to war games, not meaning no depth but typically with a higher focus on ease of use and appeal than pure realism or complexity.
CWG : More on the classical Wargame tendency, ie probably more for pure wargames fans.
CG - Card based game.

If I forget some in any list, please quote them.

Platforms: PC, PS3, Xbox 360

Ihaterpg March 15th, 2014 03:06

Thank you, added.

Nameless one March 15th, 2014 14:50

FTL:Advanced edition is planed for early 2014
Arakion also should be released this year.
Invisible inc.(fromerly known as Incognita which was better name imo.)could be released this year but I wouldn't get my hopes up.

Carnifex March 15th, 2014 15:26

I don't believe that Malevolence has actually been released as of yet.

tomasp3n March 15th, 2014 17:58

Pillars of eternity? Bound by flame?

Ihaterpg March 15th, 2014 18:55

Cool thank you all, more to add.

And Carnifex, oops, I spend time to try decipher this until I found 2 references mentioning the same release date in december 20+ But you are right, just checking again and the game is still in beta stage.

EDIT: Ok I have added all those mentioned above this post, thank you.

Ihaterpg March 15th, 2014 22:24

Just for mention, added many (through successive updates of OP). And added "Perhaps for 2014" section for games I felt the release date was rather uncertain, those sections are just a vague hint, I didn't bother cross informations or search deeper until to get info that seem safer.

Runemaster by Paradox should be released Q4 TB-P-ISO-MAC

Thank you I hadn't noticed it, but by checking I found many sources mentioning 2015 and none a Mac release.

EDIT:
Mmm searched more and it's shared, funnily those that mention 2014 also mention Mac release but not those that mention 2015. To find more 2014 release I had to add 2014 in the search. But that url took the decision ie 2014 and Mac release so I add it in OP:

For someone who doesn't like RPG's you certainly put a lot of time and effort into writing lists about them… Good work Ihaterpg. It's been said before but I'll say it again, this year is looking awesome on the RPG front.

Ha ha yeah, it was fun to collect them, many are certainly better before release than after. :-)

It's handy to use a forum so other players interested in the list could suggest more titles. And I'm surprised nobody suggested Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues. Not that I believe it will be released in time but for now the release is planned for 2024.

I don't think it will be released this year, and even if it is I have zero expectations. SotA is a game that can only surprise me in a positive way.

Ihaterpg March 16th, 2014 13:09

Ha ha that's more the trick, it gets a bad fame for some reasons, at least on the forum. :-) I had some suspicion of it or that release date has been clearly delayed. :-)

The few trailer stuff looks very generic A/AAA Action RPG, but I was quite fan of Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman stuff, I don't remember if that was including stuff from Tracy Hickman alone. One of both alone I'm sure, but I don't remember which one. At least the (bad) graphics let hope more money has been spend elsewhere. :-)

well the official announcement (still stickied in their forums here) is…
Genre: RPG
Release date: Q4 2014
Platforms: Windows, Mac, Linux
Developed by: Paradox Development Studio
Published by: Paradox Interactive

It might or might not be moved to 2015, just because it's still almost a year for release and games always get pushed, but at least right now they still say 2014

Ihaterpg March 16th, 2014 13:26

Ha yeah I would never guess they had open a forum section for it already and the search didn't shown it in first results.

Ihaterpg March 18th, 2014 23:21

Big update. :-)

The rough numbers (from calc as is OP) :

74 RPG including 43 on Mac
28 used a Kickstarter, 12 used Early Access
38 Real Time, 31 Turn Based, 2 Real Time with Pause, 3 Dungeon Master like

LOL, it's some work but I was really curious to have a rough idea of number, kickstarters and so on.
