New PC and console games for 2022
After 2021, it’s getting harder and harder to wait for new game releases – more than half of the releases have moved to 2022! We could have just duplicated the list in an abridged form – that’s how up-to-date it is. But we’re going to go a different way – we’re going to tell you what’s most likely to be released in 2022 while trying to avoid overlap with the 2021 list. And we hope that all this splendor doesn’t pack a suitcase to move to 2023.
The coming year promises to bring unforgettable emotions from new video games. Several famous long-players will be released, such as S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 and Elden Ring. In addition, a couple of cult franchises will return from oblivion in Teen Patti slots. The new generation consoles should reveal their full gaming potential.
In this review, you will see such legendary sequels as:
- Dying Light 2;
- Horizon Forbidden West;
- Gran Turismo 7;
- Hogwarts Legacy and others.
Dying Light 2 Stay Human.
The release of the long-suffering sequel to the game about parkour fighting zombies in the city ruins has been postponed many times, and the creative vision and the composition of the development team have changed. Finally, the long-running game, still counted among the most anticipated games of 2022 on P.C. and consoles, will get released in early February.
The second part of the zombie action game promises to work on the role-playing elements properly. The player will be faced with the need to make decisions that will affect the plot and the balance of power in a world filled with the living dead. Also, a lot of attention is paid to the time of day: it will be easier to move around the city during the day, and at night the zombies will behave more aggressively and make the player act more cautiously. We hope for the best and wait for the release!
The new game from From Software studio – the creators of Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and Sekiro is a massive event for the industry and automatically makes the top 2022’s most anticipated games. But in the case of Elden Ring, the authors raised the stakes to unprecedented heights. First of all, this game will be their first attempt to implement the tried and tested hardcore action/RPG scheme in a truly open world. As far as this combination is viable – we’ll find out only after the release, but in words, From Software idea sounds like a dream.
Secondly, to write the script, Elden Ring put his hand on George R.R. Martin – the legendary writer who gave the world a fantasy series “A Song of Ice and Fire,” which became the basis for the T.V. series “Game of Thrones.” That’s someone who should know how to create dark fairytale universes with a touch of medieval cruelty! Of course, Software game worlds are already known for their deep and thoughtful mythology, but in the case of Elden Ring, we’re in for something unprecedented.
Gran Turismo 7
The new part of one of the most realistic racing simulator fans has been waiting for since the PlayStation 5. But the developers from the Polyphony Digital studio preferred to be guided by the reliable principle “if you rush, you make fun of people,” though not too close to racers. As a result, the seventh part of Gran Turismo will be released eight years after the previous numbered edition of the franchise.
Even though the game will be released on the previous generation of consoles, it is a version for PlayStation 5 that should fully reveal the project’s potential. S.S.D.s will make downloads lightning-fast, and the advanced tactile feedback and adaptive gamepad trigger DualSense will make the player feel as if he is behind the wheel of a sports car. With a controller like this in your hands, you won’t even want to buy a steering wheel!
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
The spin-off series of Borderlands shooters are expected to return the best features of the main series: hurricane action, crazy setting, and adjustable leveling. In addition, for the first time in the franchise, the so-called multi-class system will appear, allowing players to master the skills of their character and others! Now every build will be genuinely unique, and to create the most suitable for your style of play, the hero will become even more accessible!
The game is set on a fantasy board game with the charming and crazy Tiny Tina as the leader. Using a rich arsenal of firearms, players protect cute fairy animals from a cruel and bloodthirsty dragon. And, as usual, shoot a few thousand skulls on the way to the final boss. Adventures in the wondrous world of Tiny Tina is an obvious entry in the most anticipated P.C. games of 2022.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl
The long-awaited return of one of the most cherished domestic gamers franchises, without which no list in the spirit of “the most anticipated games of 2022” can do. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 will bring players back to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, which has changed a lot in the years since the last “stalker” was released. Technology has stepped forward, and it could not but affect the development of the game world. The zone is spread over 64 square kilometers, filled with dangerous anomalies, monstrous mutants, and valuable artifacts.
The craziest open-world series reboot is a dark horse that still deserves to be on the list of most anticipated P.C. games of 2022. On the one hand, Volition has long proved that it knows how to create fun sandboxes full of explicit content, and its trademark sense of humor has not yet misfired. On the other hand, the creative rethinking of the popularly beloved franchise raises particular concerns. The new characters in the trailers seem to be a pale shadow of the old Saints team, and their dialogue sounds like it was written by professional tic-tac-toe.
But at least the new Saints Row game’s gameplay will be all right. The arcade shooters from the trailers look like fun and relaxing entertainment – exactly what you expect from this franchise. And the flights over the city in a wingtip are naturally breathtaking. So the project has a chance to become one of the most pleasant surprises of 2022.
The immediate present for the Harry Potter fans is the first massive game based on their favorite fairytale universe and in the RPG genre! It is already enough to put “The Legacy of Hogwarts” in the most anticipated novelty games in 2022. The project will be a prequel to the story of the boy who survived and sent players to the school of witchcraft and wizardry model of the XIX century. At least the Forbidden Forest and the village of Hogsmeade are announced from the known locations besides the Gothic castle.
Information about Hogwarts Legacy is still kept strictly secret. There hasn’t been any gameplay trailer yet, and the storyline has not been revealed either. However, it is known that the players will be able to create their character, learn different spells, brew potions, and fantastic tame beasts. In addition, in the course of the passage, one will have to make moral choices from time to time.
It is worth noting that there is a slot of the same name for this game. So the average player can make good money on it. You can read about his successes at the link.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.
Undoubtedly, the main trump card up Nintendo’s sleeve is a sequel to one of the best open-world games ever. The developers have not spoiled the fans with plot details, and a minute gameplay trailer does not reveal too much. But one thing is sure: it obviously will add more verticality compared to the first part of the game.
In Breath of the Wild 2, Link will be able to take his glider up into the very skies of Hyrule and travel through the islands hanging in the air. In addition, the hero will learn how to manipulate time and pass through walls. And almost certainly, another battle awaits us with the source of all the troubles in the fairytale lands Ganondorf. So don’t miss one of the main adventures of the year!
