Atomic heart has ray tracing (coming at a later date, not available at launch) and DLSS 3 support so you will really be able to maximize its visuals with an RTX powered CyberPowerPC.

Star Wars Jedi Survivor – April 28
Set 5 years after the events of the first game, Jedi: Fallen Order, this sequel continues to follow Jedi Cal Kestis as he continues his fight back against the Empire who wiped out all of his fellow Jedi.

Starfield – TBA
Bethesda’s first big title since Fallout 4 (sorry Fallout 76 fans, just being real here) is hotly anticipated. We can’t wait to explore what’s out there on Starfield’s 1000 planets while leveling up our character, collecting loot, and engaging in choice and consequence based quests. Bethesda games have a unique way of transporting you into their worlds and offer near limitless entertainment – especially when you factor in their vibrant modding communities. After getting delayed to an unannounced date from Nov 11, 2022 – we are excited to see when the game finally launches this year. There is an upcoming gameplay deep dive, so keep an eye out in the near future for that from Bethesda.
