Personally, at the time of writing, I’m really looking forward to playing a few games from my backlog in the coming weeks. This includes Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Guardians of the Galaxy and Deathloop, but 2022 looks set to be another very busy year!
God of War Ragnarok
At the time of writing, I’ve been working on the PC version of God of War for some time now and I can only say that it makes me look forward to the sequel even more! It looks like Santa Monica wants to end the Norwegian saga with a bang!
Horizon Forbidden West
Guerrila Games proved that they can build more than just shooters with Horizon Zero Dawn. If we take a little look at the history of Sony and sequels (Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, The Last of Us Part 2) and see how high the platform holder has set the bar, you should be fine!
Maybe I call this one because of the lack of a GTA 6, but the last few Saints Row’s were secretly a guilty pleasure. It is in fact much less serious than the aforementioned competitor and I am curious what direction they want to go with this reboot!
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2
Although Breath of the Wild may not be the best Zelda ever (I still watch Ocarina of Time with a lot of nostalgia), I’m really looking forward to its sequel. This one seems to be a bit darker and I also hope that this game offers a little more story than its predecessor.
I always have a soft spot for new IP, especially when it comes from a studio (Bethesda) that has often proven itself to be able to score with new material. Can the makers behind Fallout 4 repeat this trick with this sci-fi RPG?! I hope so!
There is much more
In addition, I would like to mention some games that I am also looking forward to, but it is not certain whether they will be released this year or just wanted to mention. For example, I would like to start by saying that I am sorry that Microsoft does not really have many major games for 2022 yet. I secretly hope again this year that there will be at least one of Avowed, Fable and Perfect Dark that will appear. I would also like to mention the following games:
– Elden Ring
– Bayonetta 3
– Gran Turismo 7
– Forza Motorsport (if it comes out this year)
– New Need for Speed
– Grid Legends
– F1 2022
– WRC 11
