Default PC RPG for 2013

April 28th, 2013, 02:03
I couldn't find a list of coming PC/Mac RPG and it's tedious to follow game news so I was looking for a list of coming RPG, but it's not that easy to find, here the list I got. It's roughly ordered by hoped release date and most probably many won't be released in 2013.

I also added a list for turn based strategy game.

I - RPG (not including those very Tactical RPG see the TB Strategy section)
—————————————————————————-
Released (1 December):
Tales of Maj'Eyal (RL-S-ISO-MAC)
Akaneiro : Demon Hunters (A-S-DL-MAC)
Evoland (X-S-ISO-MAC)
Mars: War Logs (A-S-FP)
Expeditions: Conquistador (TB-P-ISO-MAC)
Path of Exile (A-S-ISO)
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing (A-S-DL-MAC)
Legends of Dawn (TB-S-ISO-mac)
Shadowrun Returns (TB-P-ISO-MAC)
Space Rangers HD: A War (A-S-FP)
Paper sorcerer (TB-S-FP-MAC)
Avadon 2: The Corruption (TB-P-ISO-MAC)
The Dark Eye – Demonicon (A-S-FB)
The Occult Chronicles (TB-S-ISO)
Blood Knights (A-S-DL)

Despite the end of year is close, could be released in 2013:
South Park: Stick of Truth (TB-P-ISO)
Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox (DML-S-FP)

Certainly for 2014 or already planned for 2014 if not later:
Blackguards (TB-P-ISO)
Lords of Xulima (DML-P-ISO+FP-MAC) (ISO exploration, FP fights let hope like DM)
Neo Scavenger (TB-S-ISO-MAC)
Might & Magic X Legacy (TB-P-FP)
Realms of Arkania: Blade of Destiny (TB-P-FP-MAC) (still many bugs/problems to fix)
Dead State (TB-P-ISO-mac)
Underrail (TB-S-ISO)
Eschalon Book III (TB-S-ISO-MAC)
Divinity - Original Sin (TB-P-ISO-MAC)
Meriwether (A-S-FP/FB)
The Age of Decadence (TB-S-ISO)
Dark Souls II (A-S-FB)
Wasteland 2 (TB-P-ISO-MAC)
Legends of Eisenwald (TB-X-ISO)
Antharion (TB-P-ISO)
Grim Dawn (A-S-DL)
Umbra (A-S-DL)
Nuclear Union (A-S-FP)
Dragon Age 3 : Inquisition (AP-P-TP-MAC)

Legend for the RPG list:
A = Action during fights
TB = Turn Based during fights.
RL = Rogue like
X = I don't know (haven't understood, lol)

S = Single Character
P = Party, more or less

DL = Diablo like, more or less
ISO = ISO, true, 3D, more top down
FP = First person point of view
FB = From behind point of view

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 (including Tactical RPG)
—————————————————————————-
Released (1 December):
Dominions 4 (4X/SWG - MAC)
Battle Worlds: Kronos (SWG - MAC)
Endless Space Disharmony (4X - MAC)

Some chance they are released before end of year:

Xenonauts (SSG - MAC)

Some more planed for 2014, a short list:
The Banner Saga (TRPG - MAC)
Worlds of Magic (MM - MAC)
Age of Wonders III (MM - MAC)
Warhammer 40K Armageddon (SSW)
Incognita (SSW)
Horizon (4X)
Warlock 2: the Exiled (MM)
Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft (CG - MAC)
Lords of Discord (SSW - MAC)
At The Gates (4X - 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.

EDIT: Update and added Turn based strategy section
