Game news PS5: God of War, Horizon … 8 big games coming out in 2022

As the year 2021 draws to a close and the PS5 has just blown its first candle, it’s time to look to the future to find out what the next few months have in store for video games. Some say it’s only in 2022 that we’ll see what the new generation really has in store. Here is what we can expect for the PS5.

HORIZON FORBIDDEN WEST

It’s impossible to start this article without mentioning one of Sony’s biggest cartridges for next year. Horizon Forbidden West, the continuation ofHorizon Zero Dawn, will arrive on February 18, 2022 on PS4 and PS5. The players will thus find Aloy, the heroine of the first part, who will have to face a strange red plant which threatens its world and its inhabitants, but also the madness of the men who have learned to control the machines. Along with improved graphics that take advantage of the new PlayStation, the second chapter of Guerrilla Games’ success promises a renewed and expanded exploration, less compartmentalized than in 2017. It will now be possible to climb any wall – in the limit possible -, use a grapple to hoist yourself to a ledge and a tool to glide in the air.

GOD OF WAR RAGNAROK

Another must-see from the PlayStation catalog for next year, the formidable God of War Ragnarok slowly but surely preparing its arrival on PS4 and PS5. Nevertheless, Santa Monica Studio’s triple-A does not yet have a specific release date, aside from “2022”. What we do know, however, is that the title will allow us to discover the rest of the adventures of Kratos and his son Atreus, three years after the events of the first episode. As the Ragnarok prepares, the duo set off on an adventure to find answers and survive. For now, in the gameplay trailer, we can appreciate more dazzling visuals than what we had offered the God of War of 2018, with environments where life is more present than in the past. Some new attacks and new characters will also be part of the game.


UNCHARTED : LEGACY OF THIEVES COLLECTION

Another iconic Sony hero returns, but not necessarily as expected. At the start of 2022, players will be able to rediscover Uncharted 4 and Uncharted Lost Legacy in remastered versions for PS5 and PC, with Legacy of Thieves Collection. We do not yet know the details of this new version, but it should benefit from the usual improvements of this kind of ports, namely 4K and 60 frames per second, with slightly reworked visuals. As a reminder, Uncharted 4 marks the end of the adventures of the great Nathan Drake, then extricated from his daily life to go on a last treasure hunt. For its part, Uncharted Lost Legacy offers a new story with the duo Chloé (Uncharted 2 and 3) and Nadine, antagonist of the last chapter of the series.

GREAT TOURISM 7

Expected with each new PlayStation console launch, especially by fans of racing games, Great tourism will be back very soon with a seventh episode on PS4 and PS5 still developed by Polyphony Digital. Release date, March 4, 2022. An opus synonymous with going back to basics. In the latest gameplay video, fans haven’t missed the return of Simulation GT mode and the series’ traditional campaign. “With Gran Turismo 7, we are taking things put forward in Gran Turismo Sport like the championships, while returning to a traditional large-scale experience like Gran Turismo 1 and 4 to make the best Gran Turismo possible” explained recently Kazunori Yamauchi, head of Polyphony Digital. The title will include 90 tracks at the output and will exploit ray tracing.

FORSPOKEN

Unveiled at the base during the PS5 Showcase in June 2020 as Project Athia, Forspoken continues to talk about him and will arrive Next year exclusively for console on PS5 and PC. An advantage that will end two years after the title’s release, set for May 24, 2022. It is an action-RPG with an emphasis on the open world, developed by the Luminous Productions studio and published by Square Enix. Players will follow the adventures of Frey, a young woman who travels without warning from New York City to the fantasy world of Ahtia. To find her way home, she can count on Cuff, a bracelet that talks. Overall, the title seems to be based on a solid realization and quite dynamic and lively movements, with a bunch of tools to rush forward. A future nice surprise.

LITTLE DEVIL INSIDE

After a long time, the curious Little Devil Inside talked about him again during the State of Play in October 2021. This colorful adventure game seems like an experience apart. In the last published gameplay video, we can see a hero taking the train to destroy a kraken … in the basement of a house. One thing is certain, Little Devil Inside will focus on original, unexpected discoveries, and on various phases of the game. The most important thing is not the destination, it is the encounters we have made in the meantime, as they say. In the video, we can see that there will be both moments on a world map where the heroes are represented in tiny, and moments up close, with sword fights. Finally, there will also be elements of survival. The game will first be released on PC, PS4 and PS5.


STRAY

Stray, aka “the cute game with the little cat”, is among the titles presented in June 2020 to promote the PlayStation 5 catalog. And in July of this year we got to see more, with a very first sequence of gameplay. So you control a cat that must evolve in a world populated by robots. We do not know much more for the moment, except that the animal will have to find its family. In the gameplay video, we can appreciate the care given to the atmosphere of the city, its inhabitants and the feline animations. “Exploration is a key element and as we like to add a lot of detail to our environments” explain the developers on the PlayStation blog, “We hope players enjoy looking for all the little bits of hidden knowledge”. It must be said, we can’t wait to play it.


GHOSTWIRE TOKYO

Here is another very mysterious project: since its reveal at E3 2019, Ghostwire Tokyo has shown up many times but takes a long time to come out. It must be said that in the meantime, Microsoft has bought Bethesda and Tango Gameworks (The Evil Within), the game developer. In any case, the title is always a PS5 console exclusive., also released on PC (and other media a year after its release). The adventure seems rather original. The player takes on the role of Akito whose powers begin to manifest as Tokyo is overrun by ghosts and spirits. But the man will be able to count on other allies to defend the city. Everything takes place in first person and relies on “Naruto-style” hand movements to use the spells. There is no longer to wait. Release: spring 2022.

  • Release date : Spring 2022

SIFU

We end with a game that does not look good and yet will thrill action and combat fans: SIFU. Developed by Sloclap, which has already delivered the very nice Absolve, the title is presented a kung fu game that is both complete and lively, plus a nice artistic direction. The player plays a martial arts student whose family is murdered overnight. Five people are responsible and he intends to come to the end of each of them. We haven’t been able to try our hand at the title yet, but the combos seem to be really fluid, in a combat exhilaration comparable to what Absolver offered us. SIFU seems to be the culmination of the Sloclap team’s style. With more of a small originality: each time the player dies, he becomes older, but also more powerful.

  • Release date : February 8, 2022

What about Final Fantasy XVI?

Announced in 2020, the highly anticipated Final Fantasy XVI hasn’t given much news since. According to some rumors, the title could be released next year, and even more precisely on June 16, 2022. But it will be necessary to be patient before having the answer. Especially since the next few months will be busy on the side of outputs for Square Enix, with Forspoken or Triangle Strategy. We hope for a presentation soon.

The big third-party games coming to PS5 in 2022:

  • Elden Ring
  • Hogwarts Legacy
  • Grand Theft Auto V
  • Dying Light 2
  • A Plague Tale Requiem
  • Gotham Knights
