It’s time to usher in 2024 with some brand new games to start the year off right in January. 2023 brought a lot of titles, some good and some so terrible you don’t know why they were sold in the first place as was the case with some titles back in December and November.

But regardless of whether a game is a masterpiece or a pile of trash is irrelevant when it comes to looking forward to new releases. Though hopefully more of the former happens rather than the latter.

War Hospital

Players will assume the role of a doctor in a British field hospital on the French Front. During which they’ll use time-accurate medicine to save the lives of those fighting in the war.
