The Fall of Babylon tells the story of a somewhat unexpected group of heroes who have been granted incredible powers that they hope to use to defeat the seemingly unstoppable invading force. This ARPG from PlatinumGames (Bayonetta, NieR: Automata) combines the studio’s legendary combat mechanics with the cooperative fantasy RPG seen in classic genre games like the Dark Alliance series.
Dune: Spice Wars
Described as a “real-time strategy game with 4X elements,” Shiro Games’ Spice Wars seeks to not only capture the political intrigue and strategic manoeuvring that makes the Dune universe so compelling, but somehow it’s all about it. a Groundbreaking history of the RTS franchise.
At least it will give us some more Dune while we all wait for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune: Part Two.
Dying Light 2: Stay Human
The release of Dying Light 2 has been a long way to go, but with this highly anticipated sequel to one of 2015’s surprise hits, developer Techland is looking for a way to improve on the original game’s incredible freerunning by telling a story. A time of a much more ambitious narrative about an attempt (possibly hopeless) to unite the increasingly divided people who roam the area known simply as the City.
What you get when you combine the open world, Soulsborne mechanics, and the combined creative talents of George R.R. This is a question that we will finally have an answer to when Elden Ring (arguably one of the most anticipated games in the last 15 years) comes out in 2022. Test betting on the Elden Ring network has given us a glimpse of what lies ahead, and we can’t wait to see what surprises the final version has in store.
Evil Dead: The Game
Evil Dead: The game is designed to break the curse with a cooperative horror game that puts you in control of Ash and a few other familiar faces as you fight off a variety of undead.
Developer Tango Gameworks (the studio behind the underrated Evil Within game) is returning to the horror genre with Ghostwire: Tokyo. While many of the game’s details remain a mystery, we do know that players will embark on a first-person journey through the supernatural side of Tokyo, battling spirits through a combat system that director Shinichiro Hara describes as “karate meets magic.”.If Tango’s previous work is any indication, it’s safe to assume at least that this game is going to be terrifying.
God of War Ragnarök
Kratos and Atreus are back in one of the most anticipated games of 2022. As the end of the world looms, Kratos must help Atreus uncover the truth about his origins, fight Thor, and find Tyr: the Norse god of war many believe in. Died a long time ago. No one really knows what to expect from the end of the so-called God of War “Nordic Saga”, but 2018’s brilliant reboot certainly sets the bar high.
Batman is dead, and Gotham is a more extensive war zone than ever. You control Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin and Red Riding Hood as they try to save the City and possibly become Gotham’s new hero.
Recent Batman games have certainly raised our expectations for the series, but the game’s in-and-out co-op multiplayer mode could help it assert itself and become one of the most entertaining action games of the year.
Gran Turismo 7
It’s been a while since we last launched a genuinely new Gran Turismo game, but in the minds of many, the series is still the standard by which all realistic racing games are judged. With the power of the PS5, they might even find a way to overcome the series’ legendary audio and visual design elements that often make GT games a clear statement that the next-gen match is here.
For years, we’ve dreamed of an open-world Harry Potter role-playing game that would allow us to become Hogwarts students. While there’s still a lot we don’t know about Hogwarts Legacy, everything that’s been shown about the game so far suggests that it’s exactly what developer Avalanche Software hopes to deliver. The morality and character creation systems promised in this game should definitely help us create an adventure at Hogwarts that is genuinely ours.
Horizon Forbidden West
No one really knows what’s going to happen at Horizon Zero Dawn 2017, but Guerrilla Games’ most ambitious project has become one of the most unique and captivating open-world games of the last generation. With an expanded item system and some new biomes, The Forbidden City could be a great sequel, turning the series into one of the most undeniable gaming franchises.
