Upcoming Strategy RPGs

Expanding the definition of a Strategy RPG from a JRPG with a combat system that goes beyond just pressing A for 40 hours to also include tactical RPGs but with some extra management systems, and strategy games with RPG elements, PC Gamer brings us this list of SRPGs to look forward to in 2023.

The list includes the likes of Capes, positioned as a Freedom Force successor, the latest installment in the humorous Dungeons series, and the recently crowdfunded Zoria: Age of Shattering.

And just for good measure, it also includes a number of early access titles, SRPGs that may or may not get a 2023 release, and some CRPGs that could be considered strategic under the right lighting.

Here’s a quick excerpt to get you started:

Upcoming CRPGs you might like if you’re into SRPGs

  • Broken Roads. Fallout but in post-apocalyptic Australia. Every character has a Moral Compass that influences dialogue and progression. Due 2023.
  • Baldur’s Gate 3. Larian’s modern take on D&D, adapting the fifth edition rules. Currently in early access, full release scheduled for August, 2023.
  • Sovereign Syndicate. A steampunk CRPG set in an alternate Victorian London that’s reminiscent of Arcanum and Disco Elysium. One of the player-characters you can choose from is an alcoholic minotaur. Probably won’t be out until early 2024, but worth keeping an eye on.
  • Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader. From the makers of the Pathfinder games, a turn-based CRPG set in the baroque science-fantasy setting of 40K. Currently in alpha, with a beta planned this year.
  • Esoteric Ebb. A cleric and a goblin work together to solve a mystery in an urban weird fantasy world. Uses D&D 5E rules, has plenty of Planescape: Torment and Disco Elysium in its DNA.
