And immediately a PC port of the great game - the action game God of War that thundered on the PlayStation.

Sifu (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC) - February 8

An action game with RPG elements about a hit girl who moved from New York to a fantasy world and is now trying to get back. The world itself is going through hard times: the Rift is gradually destroying the lands, so the central city is overflowing with refugees.
