Last year, there were many teasers and vague announcements: 2022 will have to be the year of confirmations for many interesting projects.
2021 may have been a disaster, but at least it went away quickly, didn’t it? Who would have thought that playing video games and leaving the house so rarely would have made time fly … Since everyone, more or less, is forced to remain in their golden prison, it is appropriate to give a look at 2022 and the greatest video games that next year will bring as a dowry. Yes, video games are the most important thing, do not listen to yet another existential crisis.
The names to mark in 2022 –
Some of these games could be released in 2022, for others it could be useful a little more time, but the chances of any updates popping up on that are not remote – a simple trailer might do as well, which never will be. Details are scarce for most of the titles that will be mentioned in this article, but that information is more than enough to kickstart the hype ride – here are the most exciting games coming in a year or two. .
Marvel’s Wolverine —
We know practically nothing about the new Marvel’s Wolverine, but who cares? It’s a Wolverine game from the studio behind Marvel’s Spider-Man e Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, which is enough and more. The announcement trailer shows a person sitting at a bar full of unconscious (or dead) criminals. The camera approaches that person, and focuses on his injured hands and knuckles. A man comes up behind him and – wow! – here come the adamantium claws. The hope is that Insomniac will manage to make this game quite different from Spider-Man, since Wolverine is exactly a family hero. If there are claws, it is good that they are used to dirty every room with the right amount of blood, otherwise what’s the point?
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake —
Also for this title, only a short teaser trailer has been shown, for now. But Knights of the Old Republic is one of the best Western RPGs ever made. If the developers leave the story and characters intact, they will update the fights to meet modern standards and give it nice graphics, nothing can go wrong. True? The hope is that the answer to this question will arrive in 2022.
The team behind the Forza Horizon series leaves the comfort of burnt tires and wobbly suspension to create their first open world action RPG. Like many others on this list, there are very few details on Fable, but the hope is that it captures the British style of the original series, which was an RPG as much as a life simulator.
The Outer Worlds 2 —
The first The Outer Worlds was a pretty good spiritual heir to Fallout. Filled with anti-capitalist messages and dialogue choices that required great foresight, it was basically the Fallout chapter Obsidian always wanted to do after New Vegas, albeit without the official license. Despite the similarities, The Outer Worlds has managed to build its own personality – space adventure is one of the wittiest games ever created. Now that Obsidian is a property of Microsoft and has access to triple-A budget, the sequel should smooth the edges of the progenitor.
Dragon Age 4 —
It has few dragons and many evil people, but Dragon Age is one of the best RPG series ever. No chapter has made it past the first, though. Dragon Age: Origins is the high point of the saga and the hope is that BioWare is aiming for that level of quality for its fourth episode. It would be nice to find out more about the setting, the timeline and literally whatever else “Solas is still bad” in 2022 is.
Mass Effect —
BioWare again, huh? Not satisfied with creating the new episode of one of the most acclaimed RPG series, the Canadian developer is also aiming to make another Mass Effect – one that pretends that Mass Effect Andromeda does not exist, presumably. Expect characters from the original trilogy to return and lots of fan service this time around.
Perfect Dark —
Officially unveiled at The Game Awards 2020, Perfect Dark hasn’t been seen since. Quite fitting, considering that the protagonist Joanna Dark he’s a spy. The original game was a cyberpunk first person shooter and one of the best FPS ever made. Will the new chapter live up to that reputation? It would be great to see it in action in 2022 so that everyone can find out.
Hogwarts Legacy —
Another title unveiled in the distant era that was 2020: Hogwarts Legacy promises to be the definitive Harry Potter game. Players will be able to take control of a character that they create ad hoc and make him spend years at Hogwarts, from the selection of the House to the graduation. From there, you will grow up and step out into the open world of Wizarding World. Will you be a Harry or a Voldemort? It seems extremely ambitious, which pushes all fans to want to know more about it as soon as possible.
Indiana Jones —
All that has been shown for this game is a short teaser, but who cares? It’s an Indiana Jones video game give it to you developers behind the Wolfenstein series. If anyone knows how to bring the Nazis to their knees, it’s Machine Games. How can it not be a great game?
Project 007 —
If you thought you hadn’t really seen anything from Indiana Jones, here’s Project 007, which is literally a tentative codename. That’s not to say you don’t have to be eagerly awaiting – it’s a focused title su James Bond from the team behind the Hitman series. Now take a moment to think about what wonder could come of it …
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 —
If you haven’t played The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild yet, go and do it immediately. Done? Good. How good was it? Isn’t that a true evolution of the open world genre? Gorgeous. Anyway, there’s another one on the way. Nintendo has already shown a taste of gameplay, where it has been seen that Link will sail the skies and swoop through the clouds. Other than that, not much else has been revealed, and even the final name of the game is a secret: the Big N explained that unveiling the final title would be too important a spoiler for the story.
Alan Wake 2 —
It’s been a long time, but Alan Wake is back. Developer Remedy has already said that new information on the sequel will be released in the summer of 2022, so you can be sure of that. The first Alan Wake had some creepy moments but it was essentially an action. For the second chapter, the Finnish studio wants to do something it has never tried: create an authentic survival horror similar to Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Obviously, you can’t wait to find out more …
Arkane is a studio known for its rich single-player games with intricate level designs. For Redfall, the Dishonored software house is working on a real open world, which will support cooperative gameplay for up to four players. Together, you will travel around this world and eliminate vampires. Imagine Far Cry but with the depth of Deus Ex, and you won’t be too far from what Redfall will try to be. What else could one expect from the creators of some of the best immersive sims ever made? The release is scheduled for the summer of 2022.
God of War: Ragnarok —
The latest God of War has already become a great classic, and is undoubtedly one of the best action games ever made. Santa Monica Studio will succeed in repeat that success of 2018? From the first trailers seen so far, it would seem so. Do not expect a break with the recent past, however: rather than revolutionize the saga again, the second chapter will aim to answer all the questions left open by the ending of the previous one.
