Elden Ring, God of War Ragnarok, Starfield: 2022 most anticipated games
2022 has begun and with it comes the promise of more amazing games for consoles and PC. And their names carry a lot of weight: a new God of War, a Bethesda RPG, a Pokémon title… Game options will not be lacking for fans.
So we present here the most anticipated games of the new year for you to put on your agenda and get ready to play.
1. Elden Ring (February 25 – PlayStation, Xbox and PC)
Elden Ring, from the legendary FromSoftware studio, from Demon’s Souls, from the Dark Souls series, from Bloodborne and from Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice wants to innovate. For this, they bring the same game scheme established by the studio in an unprecedented open world. The story was partnered by George R. R. Marin, creator of the books The Chronicles of Ice and Fire, which gave rise to the series Game of Thrones.
With several gameplay options and the characters’ combat style, you’ll have your skills tested in the most anticipated game of the year. And, in addition to being able to use a lot of spells and melee weapons, you’ll have a horse to move faster around the map.
2. God of War Ragnarok (undated – PlayStation)
We’ll not have a trilogy of the new Kratos and Atreus adventure. We’ll have two games. But two great games. To end the story of the greatest action game hero in Norse mythology, God of War Ragnarok promises to be bigger and better. The look doesn’t seem to have any improvement over the 2018 game, but it’s still beautiful.
Action will not be lacking and the fighting promises to be even more violent. We look forward to more weapons and the possibility of playing with Atreus.
3. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 (undated – Nintendo Switch)
Still unnamed and with a mysterious traitor, Breath of the Wild 2 is Link’s new adventure that will set our hero in search of Zelda, who has been kidnapped by an evil force. To do this, Link will have to explore what appears to be a retelling of Hyrule, now suspended in midair, and will need to use new powers to save the princess.
4. Starfield (undated – Xbox and PC)
Starfield is one of the most anticipated games of the year and perhaps the biggest one. And because it’s from Bethesda, it’s not to be expected a game with a short story. We’re going to spend a lot of time exploring space. This, yet, is Bethesda’s first game using an all-new graphics engine, which will look great and give us a taste of what to expect in The Elder Scrolls 6.
4. Horizon Forbidden West (February 18 – PlayStation)
Sequel to the acclaimed Horizon Zero Dawn, Horizon Forbidden West continues Aloy’s adventures across a world in the dystopian and desolate future. She’ll travel to the Western United States, more specifically in the San Francisco region. Her goal will be to stop a new threat that could end all life on the planet.
5. Pokémon Legends: Arceus (January 22 – Switch)
Fans may not be putting much faith in this game due to the poor graphic quality presented in the trailers and images. But we’re talking about the next big game in the Pokémon franchise. It’s not just any game… The title will be a different one from the rest of the original series, with the story taking place in the Sinnoh region when the place was still known as Hisui, a long time ago.
Exactly what will happen in the story remains to be seen, but you’ll help civilization populate the area and catalog Pokémon in a semi-open world.
6. S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 Heart of Chernobyl (April 28 – Xbox and PC)
The game, developed by GSC Game World, will be one of the first titles to feature the Unreal Engine 5 graphics engine on the Xbox and the PC. The visuals will be incredibly realistic, but there’s a huge care with the gameplay. The fights will be amazing and the game promises good scares.
