January

Elden Ring

Developers – FromSoftware Inc
Supported Platforms – PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Microsoft Windows
Release Date of Elden Ring – January 21, 2022

Elden Ring is an upcoming action RPG that is heavily inspired by The Witcher 3 and at times, it feels like some cinematics may be borrowed from Shadow of Mordor as well. The early gameplay reveal looks promising and since George R.R Martin and Hidetaka Miyazaki are the writers for Elden Ring, we’re expecting a thrilling story backed with well-balanced mechanics.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus

Genre – Adventure-RPG
Developers – Game Freak
Supported Platforms – Nintendo Switch
Release Date of Pokemon Legends: Arceus – January 28, 2022

Pokemon Legends: Arceus, the next-generation open-world game with a thrilling story and never-before-seen gameplay, is setting the bar really high for the franchise’s upcoming games. Unfortunately, it will only be available on Nintendo Switch which is a bit of a bummer for PC and Console gamers. While Pokemon Legends: Arceus is likely to make it to the top with its unique offering, it’s bound to make a splash with its open-world narrative.

For the fourth time, GSC is releasing a new first-person shooter in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R series. The developers took their time in developing this one because the last entry in the franchise was released almost 13 years ago. With this much time on their hands, we’re expecting phenomenal first-person experience that’ll blow us away.

The year 2022 doesn’t have many car/racing games lined up but, Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown is one of the few that’ll be coming out next year. The developers have been teasing the game for some time and by the looks of it, they have managed to upgrade the gameplay and mechanics by a notch.
