Here is our pick of 10 Newly Release Games of 2022



10. Tiny Tina's Wonderlands.

The game was announced a few months ago and had been released on March 25th, 2022. Essentially, this is a big blowout of previous "Borderlands" DLC that played with this whole concept of Tiny Tina, the zany side character, doing her own kind of fantasy adventure tabletop game. So here, what you have is a new "Borderlands" game set in a completely different environment with a kind of medieval, weird, mystical fantasy vibe to it. The weapon types seem totally different. The enemies seem totally different. Just the overall flow and loop of the game and the map seems to be different and is more fantasy RPG-focused. It already looks like it's gonna be fun. If you're a "Borderlands" fan, you're probably digging what you're seeing. If you're not a "Borderlands" fan, the humor might still rub you the wrong way, but props to them for doing something different here.



9. Pokemon Legends: Arceus

The Game had been released on January 28th, 2022. This is the big one, folks. If you've been looking for a Pokemon game where you can run around a big 3D open world and catch Pokemon and battle, here you go. Granted! They've kind of dabbled with it before, but this is the blown-out, crazy one. There has been criticism already for its graphics. It Just looks as a kind of the limitations of the Nintendo Switch. Still, to have a fully 3D Pokemon game on the Switch is pretty exciting. This serves as kind of like a preqeal story. It's in an older era of the Sinnoh region, and it's actually called something different. It was called the Hisui region, so it's kind of got this weird, kind of old-timey Pokemon feel to it. You're still a guy or a girl with a cool hat and a jacket, but there's a slight ancient vibe to it, and it's really cool. You will be seeing new Pokemon, new trainers, new ways to fight, and most importantly, new ways to explore. There's a lot more going on in this one.


8. Gran Turismo 7.

Yes, Polyphony Digital has released another one. It's been quite some time. They very much took their time. The Game had been released on March 4th, 2022. Looks like "Gran Turismo 7" is continuing the trend of just really upping all the stakes: more cars, crazier graphics, more options, more details overall, more fine-tuning. And we loved to see it. Honestly, we're always excited when a PlayStation console gets graced with awesome games like these. These are, if you haven't played them, more hardcore simulation-focused, so don't expect a lot of personality and fun and doing crazy jumps. No, this is hardcore realism, real car stuff. So while there is a world for arcade racers, we have a blast with stuff like "Forza Horizon" and all that, the Gran Turismo series takes things a bit more seriously, so if you're a hardcore car enthusiast, hopefully, you'll be happy with this one. So far, it's looked pretty good. As much as some of the updates sound like small things, it could just make for a really good, fun, gorgeous car game. And you know? That's all we're really looking for.



7. Sons of the Forest.

This is the long awaited followup to "The Forest," which was a survival game with some really hardcore horror elements to it and a lot of good stuff. "Sons of the Forest," interestingly enough, is hotly anticipated by "Forest" fans, but we don't know much about it. It does look like kind of familiar to 'The Forest' in a lot of ways. You're once again stranded, you're using items, you're building shelter, and you're defending yourself from really creepy forest creatures. They haven't shown off this game too much. So, not much can be said about the game. We are hoping that they really went all out and are gonna give us something absolutely amazing. That's, of course, just our general analysis, but there's good potential in it. And we'll find out if the release date holds, because right now, it's set for May 20th, 2022.


6. Sifu.

The Game had been released on Feb 8th, 2022. This is one of our favourites, just because of how cool it looks. We love games like these, especially if they are coming from developers like Slow Clap. These are the people behind "Absolver," which was a pretty intense game with a hand-to-hand fighting system and a lot of challenges. They have taken that gameplay framework and combat system, and applied it to a different style of game. There seems to be this mechanic where every time you die, you come back older. Fight scenes are hardcore, the way you can grapple, counter and fight enemies and use objects in the environment or use the environment itself to win seems so satisfying. If you've played "Absolver," you know that combat system is on a absolutely different level . Even if the rest of the game was just kind of like eh, that combat system is top-tier, so for them to use that again and expand on it makes the game worth trying.



5. Forspoken

"Forspoken" is releasing on PC and PS5. As of right now, the news reports that it is a two-year PlayStation exclusive, and will be releasing on May 24th, 2022.

It is a Square Enix action-adventure RPG that looked like a really gorgeous game as shown in their tech demo. But now, is starting to reveal itself as a full game. It's still a bit too early to tell, but the concept of you just kind of being a regular girl pushed into this weird fantasy world and using these cool powers, is kind of almost like "Infamous," but you're a mage casting magic, seems pretty cool, not to mention the fact that just the visual style, the dialogue, the music, the art direction, all of that seems to be top-tier, big-budget, AAA stuff. We're just hoping that the actual meat of the game, the gameplay, the exploration, and that story, can really live up to what had been potrayed on the surface.




4. S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

Now, the "S.T.A.L.K.E.R." series is an absolutely legendary PC series. It's what a lot of PC gamers think of immediately when you think of the early 2000s games and just how it pioneered open-world, survival-horror, resource management stuff in a fun post-nuclear-disaster world. And it seems like they're doing it again, but this time, with a crazy budget and sick graphics. Recent videos with this game running in Unreal Engine 5 look absolutely insane. We've seen little glimpses of gameplay with some combat versus human and mystical, otherworldly things, including weapon attachments, using items. And if this is anything at all like the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s, it should make for a really tense experience, and now thankfully, it has the graphics, the mood and the atmosphere to really fill in the blanks and sell what made the original game so special. There's still time to play the originals if you never have, but we'll know for sure if this one is legit when we will get to play it on April 28th, 2022.


3. Dying Light 2.

After so many delays, the game was finally locked and had been released on 4th Feb, 2022. And long story short, the reason why this game has been put in the list is because we liked the original game so much. Not only was it just a good old, solid, adventure open-world game that kind of took the zombie formula and spun it on its head, but it was also supported with a ton of cool post-release content, and it was like the gift that the developers kept on giving. Now, with "Dying Light 2," it's taking that fun core gameplay framework with the parkour, action, the violence and have added a lot more RPG and story elements to it. You making decisions on how to help out these micro-civilizations that have cropped up after the viral outbreak. It looks like it's very much trying to do ambitious things with your decisions and who you help and what you do will actually change how the societies or these factions work. Not to mention the parkour move set has also been upgraded, and there's only melee weapons. There's no emphasis on guns because we're so far past the original outbreak that things are kind of broken down now. This game is highly recommended by us regardless.




2. Horizon Forbidden West.

It's an absolute blowout compared to "Horizon Zero Dawn." They have taken a lot of things from it along with making it bigger, badder, and crazier. The combat and the action looks absolutely stunning. The amount of destruction, the amount of destrution to the enemies, the enemy type themselves and the speed of it, all seems really cool. Not to mention the beauty of the world. It's a cocktail of a new adventure, new regions, new cultures, and apparently, more of an emphasis on questing and towns and RPG stuff that we love. Apparently, NPCs are much more interesting this time around. A lot of people liked "HorizonZero Dawn" quite a bit, but didn't love it head over heels. This one has taken it to the next level. Thankfully, we won't have to wait for it as it has been released on February 18th, 2022 already.

What more can you say about this long-anticipated game from FromSoftware, the people behind "Demon's Souls," "Dark Souls," "Bloodborne" and "Sekiro"? This is their next big thing, and has very much taken the Soulsborne formula and framework, putting it in an open-world setting. And from what we've seen , it doesn't look like they're half-assessed it. It doesn't just look like "Dark Souls," but in an open world. The way they've designed the bosses and how the flow works from the open world into dungeons seems to be pretty creative. It gives you choices along with freedom. There's a jump button now, which is insane and really changes things up. The summons look cool. Everything about this game looks phenomenal If you're a fan of these games, a fan of FromSoftware, then nothing else is left to say . Just get the experience of playing this masterpiece yourselves and have a jolly time. There's nothing that you don't already know or there's nothing else to get you more excited. "Elden Ring" has been released on all the major consoles on February 25th, 2022.
