What Games Are You Looking Forward To In 2022?

Indie games coming in 2022. Some sound pretty cool.

Aren’t we due State of Decay 3 sometime?

And Elex 2 :)

Songs of Conquest.

Distant Worlds 2
Songs of Conquest

Midnight Suns

This looks like it’s going to be an amazing year for beating the crap out of stuff.

Monster Hunter Rise
Elden Ring
Bayonetta 3
Salt and Sacrifice
TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge
Hollow Knight: Silksong

It should also be a good year for big name releases, assuming these actually come out in 2022.

Company of Heroes 3
Baldur’s Gate III

Near term, February looks really packed.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human (Feb 4)
Sifu (Feb 8)
Horizon: Forbidden West (Feb 18)
Elden Ring (Feb 25) <--------------- DAY ONE FOR SURE
Grid Legends (Feb 25)

Elex II (Mar 1)
Gran Turismo 7 (Mar 4)
Tunic (Mar 16)
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands (Mar 25)
Starship Troopers - Terran Command (Mar 31)

STALKER 2 (April 28) - dubious

I’m looking forward to that game being ported to the Switch, 13 Aegis or something? From the Princess Crown dude which means Sakimoto soundtrack.

Old World on steam

thats all I can think of atm

Why not just buy it now? It’s down to $26.

Distant World 2
Old World (on steam)
A Shadow Empire expansion?

I have way too many RPG, open world and platform games in my backlog to consider anything new on that front.

Like the visual style on that!

Yeah, it looks really different, both in the visual style and also the camera usage

2022 - year of the 2s.

I love how STALKER is the fourth game in the series and still gets to be a “2”.

I feel like I’ll never even get to my backlog with so many new releases on the horizon I want to play. :(

Horizon Forbidden West
Elden Ring
Salt & Sacrifice

It’ll be waiting for you in retirement :)

Polygon’s turn. Quite a bit different list than the one Kotaku did above.

Oh hey, they also did a list of most anticipated.
