Here’s a list of the top 10 upcoming games you need to play in 2022.

1. Saints Row

Saint Row

Saints Row was initially going to release in February, but developers suspected some bugs in it. That’s great because who wants to play a glitchy game. However, we have a few more months to wait before we can jump into the off-the-wall action we expect from Volition’s chaotic playground. The new Saints Row is a reboot as it isn’t just another entry in the series. Although the game resembles a lot of its original game it is released as a new game. 

The first two games in the Saint Rows series started as a much more severe and grounded take on gangland warfare, before Saints Row descended into fighting aliens, attacking people with phallic objects, and other general absurdities. 

The new Saints Row feels like a mix of both of its predecessors. There’s little info about the game and much needs to be explored. However, it’s certainly one for fans of the series and for complete newbies to keep an eye on. If you are a fan of GTA, you will surely like this game.

As the name shows, The Last of Us Part 1 has a new version coming this year. It is coming exclusively to PlayStation 5 on September 2 along with a PC version to follow later in the year.

After watching the trailer and gameplay scenes of both games, we have done a comparison between the scenes shown in the first trailer for The Last of Us Part 1 and from the Remastered version of the game that came out on PS4. The comparisons are proving that the developers of this game are doing a great job in making this game worthwhile. As both games are of the same plot so some moments are identical in their delivery. However, the major difference comes with only a marked improvement in visual fidelity and facial animation of the character.

Fortunately, The Last of Us Part 2 will be available on PS5. However, there’s no news we have heard about The Last of Us Part 1 will be coming to PS4. No matter how Part 2 looked on that older console. The developers of the game, Naughty Dog, have been aiming at more powerful hardware throughout its development. It means that for now, it’s going to be on PlayStation 5 only if you’re a console gamer as the game becomes more graphics intensive. Moreover, the game will be also available on PC, although not quite as quickly. The president of Naughty Dog explained that the PC version will get released just after the PS5 release of the game.

Mainly, Overwatch 2 is transitioning Overwatch PvP into a free-to-play seasonal mode. In addition to that, the game is making some dramatic changes to the basic format of competitive Overwatch play. Unlike original Overwatch, the team sizes are reduced to a 5v5 format, with only one tank hero for each time. New heroes are also introduced in Overwatch 2 with more forceful abilities and qualities. Moreover, existing heroes will be undergoing substantial revisions to how their abilities and weapons function.

Top Point Campus

Two Point Campus has the same formula of management where you will be running and managing a university campus, its classes, students, faculty, and a lot of other things inside them, which cannot be enough in much simpler words. It might sound a bit boring as everyone takes an escape from their regular routines and sits on their consoles and PCs to play games, so how can a person sit to construct their campus? Well, the brand director, Craig Laycock, explains that what the studio achieves is the setting of the sounds, charm, and humor in them. There is a huge culture inside the game, which we will be discussing in a short while. However, even before the release, the Metacritic shows a buzz score of 70, which is not bad and you can preorder the Two Point Campus as it is going to be released on August 9th.

Developers of the Two Point Campus actually say that their idea for the campus actually came while they were creating the Two Point Hospital. So how was it even possible to ignore another idea after the successful execution of one idea. noting that this game will be focused on building and managing a university.
