The latest PlayStation console exclusive is Kena: Bridge of Spirits, an indie game from Ember Lab. This action-adventure game has been hyped for the majority of 2021 and, thankfully, it ended up being one of the year's best games. In our Kena: Bridge of Spirits review, we praised its exploration, battle system, and visuals. Though it's a console exclusive for PS4 and PS5, you can also play this one on PC.

How to play Kena: Bridge of Spirits on PC

The main thing to know about this game on PC is that it's exclusive to the Epic Games Store. That's right — you'll need to download the client for EGS to get started before being able to purchase Kena: Bridge of Spirits. It's common for the Epic Games Store to feature exclusive games, as it makes the platform much more appealing.

Step 1: If you visit the Epic Games website right now, you'll be greeted with the option to download the launcher. Simply click the top right where it says Get Epic Games to do so.

Step 2: From here, you'll need to go through the steps of installing the launcher onto your computer, just like you would any other program. It's free to download, so as long as you have room on your computer, there's no downside. In fact, the platform often features free games for you to download, similar to PS Plus or Xbox Games With Gold — only they're actually free since you don't need to have a paid membership.

Step 3: After you've initiated the download, click through the prompts, and you'll eventually be asked to sign in. At this point, if you don't have an account, you can create one. After you've signed in, the EGS launcher will open and you'll be able to make your purchase.

Step 4: When it first launched, Kena was advertised all over the Epic Games Store, so it was easy to find. However, you can type in the name of the game in the search bar located in the top right of the screen to find it. Here, you can make your purchase. Keep in mind Kena: Bridge of Spirits costs $40. There's also a digital deluxe edition that costs $50, but comes with the soundtrack, a unique Kena Staff, and Golden Rot Skin.

Miasma Chronicles’ critical hits might be the deadliest of any video game
miasma chronicles preview gdc

Just when I think there are no new ways to make a tactics game, something like Miasma Chronicles completely blows that notion apart. Developed by The Bearded Ladies, the upcoming tactical RPG is something of a continuation of the studio’s previous project, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. It’s another post-apocalyptic adventure that has players freely exploring large worlds and stopping to battle monsters in traditional turn-based tactical battles. Don’t expect the exact same experience, though; the old dog has learned plenty of new tricks.

Sam with grey hair.

There were plenty of hints along the way, and even some leaks by the leading man himself, but it was only made official at the Game Awards 2022 that Death Stranding 2 is on its way. Coming from the same influential and creative mind as the original, as well as the Metal Gear franchise before it, Hideo Kojima introduced the game himself. Of course, nothing about Kojima's games are straight forward, and what was revealed about Death Stranding 2 probably raised more questions than it answered. We're strapping on our boots, connecting to our BBs, and are ready to make the trek to find out everything there is about Death Stranding 2.
Release date

The trailer didn't give us a release date for Death Stranding 2, and in fact, even pointed out that this was just the game's working title and would likely change. That leads us to believe that 2023 is probably too soon to expect it, but 2024 certainly feels possible.
