Top 5 Games We’re Excited for in May 2024

2024 has been a strong year for games, and this May looks to continue the trend. On that note, here are the top 5 games we’re excited for in May 2024. Oh, and we won’t make you click through five pages to look at the entire list.

Top 5 Games We’re Excited for in May 2024


Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II


Ninja Theory and Xbox Game Studios’ Senua’s Saga: Hellbalde II is set to throw players into a brutal journey once more when it launches this month.

Set in a brutal Viking Iceland, players will once again follow the story of Senua as they set out to overcoming darkness both within and without.  

Much like what drew us to the original release, we are looking forward to truly immersing itself in its world – between its detailed visuals and excellent sound work, this will truly be an audiovisual treat.

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II will come out for the Xbox Series X|S and PC on May 21, 2024.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door


Developer Intelligent Systems and Publisher by Nintendo are bringing the classic GameCube RPG Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door to the Nintendo Switch this May. 

Players will still set a course as the infamous Mario as they set out to learn about the Crustal Stars and open the titular Thousand-Year Door.

We loved the original release to death, but we’re especially looking forward to seeing the glow-up done to the redone graphics and animations. If there’s a title that deserves this treatment, it’s Paper Mario and its “flat” world!

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door will come out for the Nintendo Switch on May 23, 2024. 

MultiVersus


The world of Player First Games and WB Games’ MultiVersus will be back and better than ever with the re-launch of MultiVersus.

We’re suckers for platform fighters like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Slap City; doubly so with Warner Bros. properties like Game of Thrones and Adventure Time.

We especially like the graphical updates and character updates via the use of Unreal Engine 5, along with its new PvE mode.

MultiVersus will come out for PC and consoles on May 28, 2024.

Homeworld 3


Blackbird Interactive and Gearbox Software’s Homeworld 3 is set to continue the series’ rich legacy, letting players assume control and battle on a galactic scale.

Not only will players have complete strategic freedom, they’ll be able to do so on a massive scale. The story of the series has won multiple game of the year awards, and Homeworld 3 looks to pen a new chapter.

In particular, we’re looking forward to bringing a friend along for its co-op that combines the signature real-time strategy gameplay of the series with a more roguelike structure.

Homeworld 3 will come out for the PC on May 13, 2024.

Indika


Odd Meter and 11 bit Studios will transport players to an alternate Russia with their truly unique title Indika.

As players join the titular young nun Indika on her journey of self-discovery, players will be transported to an alternative late XIX century Russia. However, there’s a twist; religious visions clash with harsh reality with the devil as one’s companion.

Not only are we drawn to this truly unique concept, we’re also excited to see the distortion play out in this third-person adventure.

Indika will come out for the PC on May 11, 2024.
