What will we be playing in 2022? most anticipated games

The coming year promises to give unforgettable emotions from new video games. Several well-known long-term construction projects will reach the release at once – such as S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 and Elden Ring, a couple of cult franchises of the past (Bayonetta 3 and Hogwarts Legacy) will return from the abyss of oblivion, and next-generation consoles should reach their full potential in games – for this we are waiting for the new God of War: Ragnarök.

Believe me, all titles from our list should be added to your wishlist today. Here are the most anticipated games of 2022.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human


Genre: Horror, Action, RPG

Release date: February 4, 2022

Platforms: PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch

The release of the long-suffering sequel to the game about fighting zombies in urban ruins was postponed many times, and the creative vision and composition of the development team changed. Long-term construction, still credited as one of the most anticipated games of 2022 on PC and consoles, will finally make it to release in early February.

In the second part of the zombie action, they promise to work out the role-playing elements properly. The player will more often face the need to make decisions that will affect not only the development of the plot, but also the balance of power in the world filled with the living dead. Much attention is also paid to the mechanics of changing the time of day: during the day it will be easier to move around the city, and at night the zombies will behave much more aggressively and force the player to act more carefully. We hope for the best and look forward to the release!

Horizon Forbidden West

Genre: Action, Adventure, RPG

Release Date: February 18, 2022

Platforms: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5

The sequel to one of the brightest and most unusual PlayStplation exclusives. Armed with the most stylish bow in the world, hunter Aloy is once again preparing to take on the fight against mechanized dinosaurs. New dangers await her ahead: according to the developers, Forbidden West will make opponents from other tribes a much more serious threat.

The action of the sequel will unfold in a fantastic version of the US West Coast, where the main character will have access to explore not only the wilds of the jungle and mesmerizing dunes, but also the depths of the underwater world: lakes, rivers and seas. The Guerrilla Games studio once again uses the Decima engine, on which not only the first part of Horizon was created, but also the most expensive Death Stranding courier simulator from Hideo Kojima. Given this fact and the capabilities of the PlayStation 5, you can not worry about the quality of the graphics in the sequel. Although, judging by the pre-release materials, the game looks amazing even on the previous generation of consoles.

Elden Ring

Genre: RPG

Release date: February 25, 2022

Platforms: PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S

The new game from From Software, the creators of Dark Souls, Bloodborne and Sekiro, is in any case a huge event for the industry, automatically entering the top of the most anticipated games of 2022. 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 true hardcore action/RPG scheme in a truly open world. How viable this combination will be, we will find out only after the release, but in words, From Software’s idea sounds like a dream.

Secondly, George R. R. Martin himself, the legendary writer who gave the world the fantasy cycle A Song of Ice and Fire, which became the basis of the Game of Thrones series, had a hand in writing the script for Elden Ring. Who should know a lot about creating gloomy fairy-tale universes with a touch of medieval cruelty! The worlds in From Software games are already famous for their deep thoughtful mythology, and in the case of Elden Ring, we are clearly in for something completely unprecedented.
