It’s almost a new month and that means we have a new set of games to watch out for. With March being a busy month, but not as tremendously full as the February we are closing out, there are plenty of games to be excited about, so without further ado, let’s get on with a new installment of Games To Look For.
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty (PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series) – March 3
Team Ninja is back with a new take on the action-RPG genre. This title takes players into the Three Kingdoms era of China, where they become a nameless warrior who must overcome warring factions and survive terrible beasts that lurk in the world, all in an effort to forge your name in history. Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty will also kick off the month as one of the first Game Pass additions, making it even more accessible to PC and Xbox owners.
Mato Anomalies (PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Switch) – March 10
Arrowiz is adding to the JRPG genre this month with the anime, visual novel-style game, Mato Anomalies.

Deceive Inc. (PC, PS5, Xbox Series) – March 21
We’ve all wondered what it would be like to be a secret agent. We’ve all watched a Bond movie and thought “I can do that.”. Well, now you can, in Sweet Bandits Studios multiplayer espionage and subterfuge title, Deceive Inc. Pitting solo agents or teams of players against each other on different maps, this game asks you to discover, seize and escape with a special artifact, while opponents try to foil your plans and escape with the artifact itself.
Resident Evil 4 Remake (PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series) – March 24
There’s probably not much explaining that needs to be done here, since we’re probably all pretty familiar with Resident Evil 4 and also the remakes Capcom has put out in recent years. Still, the Resident Evil 4 Remake will bring back the iconic adventure with Leon S. Kennedy at the helm and adapt it to modern times with better visuals and performance, all on top of a series of new gameplay additions aimed at expanding the game in unexpected ways.
EA Sports PGA Tour (PC, PS5, Xbox Series) – March 24
After a few years away, EA is stepping back into the world of golf video games with EA Sports PGA Tour. Called the official home of the Masters, this current-gen version of one of the oldest sports still being played today features a selection of exclusive, licensed courses and players traveling to the world’s most demanding courses in hopes of getting their names etched in the history books. With an enhanced gameplay suite and even additions to the Career mode and Multiplayer, this is looking to take back the mantle as the golf game to beat.
Crime Boss: Rockay City (PC, PS5, Xbox Series) – March 28
