Best new games announced at The Game Awards 2022
Here are some promising new video games announced at The Game Awards 2022 that we are looking forward to. This list also includes previously announced games that received major updates at TGA. This list doesn’t contain every announced game. Instead, this contains only the games that are the most promising.
Death Stranding 2
The first Death Stranding game received mixed reviews from critics. There were players who just didn’t prefer it because of its unique (yet sometimes boring) gameplay loop. It was a cinematic game and it was just what you would expect from Hideo Kojima. But since its release, many players experienced the game and grew to love it.
Death Stranding 2 is the upcoming sequel; its release date was not announced. You can expect brilliant writing and quaint storytelling from this title as well. After all, it’s a game from the legendary Hideo Kojima.
Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon
I’m sure this is a game that every FromSoftware fan is eagerly looking forward to. To be honest, Armored Core is not a franchise I’m familiar with. I’ve only heard about it and didn’t really pay much attention. But after FromSoft’s immense success with almost every title they released in modern times, I’m pretty hyped for Fires of Rubicon. There are rumors that say it’s going to be Soulslike but even if it wasn’t, I’m sure it’s worth looking forward to. I personally am excited to get introduced to an old FromSoft franchise.
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty
While Phantom Liberty is not a standalone game, it’s a major expansion to the now-popular Cyberpunk 2077. Its release date is not yet known, but it will release in 2023. Based on what was shown at TGA and the fact that Cyberpunk 2077 is now mostly fixed, we are looking forward to it.
Warhammer 40000: Space Marine 2
Space Marine II is a high-octane linear third-person hack-and-slash shooter game. It’s a single-player game and it continues the story of 2011’s Space Marine. If you haven’t played the first game, now’s a great time to do so. From the new gameplay trailer, it looks like Space Marine II is more over the top and heavy-hitting than the previous game. Its battles are large-scale and action-packed.
The Lords of the Fallen
The Lords of the Fallen looks bigger and better than the original which received mixed reviews from fans and critics alike. But the credit goes to the original for being one of the first developers who attempted to create a Soulslike game. Its success was not guaranteed then. Now the developers seem to have set their aspirations higher. The trailers of the game look really good; hopefully, it’ll be a better game than the first one (not that it’s a bad game). This will release in 2023. A specific release date is not yet announced.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is a sequel to the successful Soulslike action game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The first game had its minor flaws but it’s a really good Soulslike that’s worth playing. The sequel continues the first game’s story and there’s not much that’s available for us to know yet. The release date is March 15, 2023.
Wild Hearts looks similar to the Monster Hunter games. It’s being co-developed by Koei Tecmo and EA. The game world is a mythical setting inspired by feudal Japan. It looks like many of the monsters you hunt are ferocious and huge beasts. As of now, there’s little known information. Its release date is set for February 16, 2023.
The first Hades game was an instantly loved title by gamers because of its art style and addictive combat gameplay. The sequel seems to follow in that footsteps and deliver a game that’s bigger and better. With the popularity and success of the first title, it’s safe to imagine that this will also be a hit. Its release date is not announced yet.
The eighth entry of this long-running and popular franchise looks better than ever. Tekken 8 is developed in Unreal Engine 5 which explains its visual quality. Like the previous entries, it’s a fighting game that would be a lot of fun co-op. A release date has yet to be announced and the available details at the present don’t say much about what’s to come.
