In the gaming industry, the hype is an effective marketing tool. Are you on the lookout for the best new games in 2022? Look no further as you are in the right place. This year is a genuinely exciting year for gaming, with so many games coming out across all platforms that it keeps us up till the early morning hours; from cinematic blockbusters to long-term, slow-burn RPGs.
Listed below are some of the popular some of the popular anticipated games of 2022
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction
Launching Rainbow Six Siege was complicated, to put it mildly. However, the 6 v. 6 tactical shooters slowly recovered thanks to several patches and updates. As a result, Esports tournaments worldwide now feature the game as a staple. This long-running series spins off a new series entitled Rainbow Six Extraction. Parasitic aliens can be faced by three players in multiple interconnected maps like online casino, Clubhouse, etc. Resources management and situational awareness are still crucial in Extraction. Nevertheless, Rainbow Six Extraction may be able to fill the Left 4 Dead-shaped hole in the hearts of players.
Final Fantasy XVI
JRPGs were once king of the hill for Square Enix. In 1997, Final Fantasy VII broke new sales records in the international market by selling more than twelve million units. Two highly anticipated Final Fantasy games are due in 2022, which may be another massive year for Square Enix. Two Final Fantasy titles seem to be action-packed, Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin and Final Fantasy XVI. An exciting aspect of this title is that Ryota Suzuki will be working on it; the game is slated for release on June 16, 2022.
Nighttime in Japan is when Yokai spirits prowl the streets prowling strange spirits. GhostWire: Tokyo puts you in a position to survive, though the odds are slim. Akito is the protagonist of this coming-of-age story. It is a first-person action game about an urban legend set in Tokyo accompanied by a unique combat system, dozens of Japanese monsters that are horrifying in their way, and some of the cutest dogs ever. There was a timed exclusive release on March 25, 2022, available for PlayStation 5 owners and PC users.
God of War: Ragnarok
A multi-year hiatus could not stop him from starring in one of the best-selling games of all time, despite being held in the hands of Death, controlled by the Sisters of Fate, and despite being held in the grip of the Sisters of Fate. Kratos is the God of War, and he still has a lot to tell us. A three-year period follows the conclusion of God of War (2018) in God of War: Ragnarok. Atreus and Kratos are currently on the hit list of the Norse pantheon. In Midgard, they have a limited number of allies to support them. The Ghost of Sparta is no stranger to cataclysmic events, and Ragnarok means that the gods have succumbed to their doom.
The Batman: Arkham series, developed by Rocksteady throughout the 2010s, reshaped the action-adventure genre. Rocksteady’s franchises benefited from Rocksteady gameplay elements, from Mad Max to Spider-Man to The Witcher. Each Batman game was more complex and diversified, but a persistent lack of cooperative multiplayer remained. In Gotham Knights, players can control one of four characters: Nightwing, Batgirl, the Red Hood or Robin, allowing them to take on Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land
However, the gaming community reveres Masahiro Sakurai as the creator of Super Smash Bros. Sakurai was the first to design Kirby. The Smash series gets the attention of Kirby because of this, and Kirby games are also unique because of it. A 3-D platformer released on March 25, 2022, Kirby and the Forgotten Land is a fantastic game. With no restrictions, the pink powerhouse was free to explore a world that was very similar to ours while copying and decimating enemies by the dozen.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2
Zelda: Breath of the Wild is not one game that needs to be explained. It won multiple awards throughout 2016, 2017, and 2018, broke sales records worldwide, and spawned dozens of memes. This game was an automatic purchase if you owned a Nintendo Switch in 2017. Nintendo is hoping that Breath of the Wild 2 will surpass its predecessor. Fans have compared this game to The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask despite knowing little about this title. The verdict will be out next year if those comparisons are justified.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus
Trainers become immersed in a sprawling world filled with old and new Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Many players have noticed the similarities between this game and Zelda’s Breath of the Wild. Arceus following the footsteps of Breath of the Wild might not be such a terrible thing after all. First, it was Nintendo Switch exclusive on January 28, 2022, so Pokémon fans could get their hands on it.
