New games come every year in thousands. Open the relevant Steam tab to get the proofs. However, only a few games deserve attention from journalists and players long before they are released. Today, we will discuss the most anticipated new game releases of 2022. Note, we will not talk about Dying Light 2, as it has already been released.
Soul-like games have made the revolution in the gaming industry. While the main franchises went on the path of simplifications, Hidetaka Miyazaki chose the opposite way of games where a player needs to suffer. Surprisingly, both Dark Souls and Bloodborne franchises have gathered an audience. Now, the FromSoftware Inc. steps into the sphere with its Elder Ring. It is a brand-new game of the same genre. Its main feature is George martin as the narrative director. We should expect the same gameplay, full liberty in character building, and another deep lore to be explored.
When Bethesda Softworks starts making new games different from the Elder Scrolls, it always deserves attention. The game itself is not full of the news: we are promised the full freedom of space exploration with a character we can create from scratch. We can definitely say that another competitor to mass Effect and Star Wards will not be excessive.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League
It seems that it is DC’s destiny to answer Marvel with late releases, in both movies and games to play video. They did not manage to compete with their Justice League movie, and now, here comes the antagonist for the Guardians of the Galaxy. However, it seems that here, the competition will be better. At least, the Suicide Squad is enforced by the Batman: Arkham series team. Though the trailer is not that convincing in comparison with James Gunn’s movie, we believe in the Rocksteady developer. Also, it seems that we will see another story about artificial heroes, but not a great clash between superheroes and villains.
Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin
It is an attempt of the creators of the most popular jRPG series to conquer the souls-like sphere. According to the trailer, the game looks like a mixture of the upcoming Final Fantasy XVI and Devil May Cry 5 in a dark and grim environment. We can expect real-time battles. The action will take place in the very first world of the Final Fantasy franchise.
It is a creative attempt to release the Left for Dead 3 from the creators of Dishonored and Deathloop. Arcane Studios has made a cooperative shooter that takes place in a small USA town called Redfall. Instead of zombies, we will hunt the vampires. A team of heroes must solve the problem until it breaks out to the rest of the world. However, the task is not that simple: vampires improve and get new skills, and the town is filled with cultists wishing to turn into new vampires.
Plague Tale: Requiem
The sequel for the heart-breaking story about a sister and a brother surrounded by the plague continues. The main characters continue their travel and fight for their lives. The trailer promises more epic moments and the darkest environment. As the original was an example of excellent videogames, we are sure in the upcoming release.
Here we have gathered some video games coming soon, but probably not in 2022. However, they can take place in our top of the most anticipated games of 2022. Here is what we’ve got for you:
• Frostpunk 2. The sequel of the survival strategy in the setting of the new ice age is always expected. Coal runs out, so people will have to use the new resource - oil. The player will face more crucial decisions, competition between fractions, and more complicated gameplay.
• Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is among the new video games made after movies. Probably, it will not be released until the Avatar 2 movie sees the world.
• Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2. The first part has become one of the most important games of the generation, so everybody wants to see the sequel among the video games 2022. However, it will hardly appear earlier than 2023.
The upcoming video games promise us unbelievable impressions. As we can see, the single-game projects still remain very anticipated.
