Hey, we are back with another blog and this time we will talk about some new games that we think you should definitely check out
2022 is packed with hits after hits and we certainly can’t keep our calm. There are so many games to explore and not enough time.
Honestly, we are still not over with the 2021 hits and so this list consists of all the new games from not only this year but also from the second half of the last.
This list of new games consist of zombie thrillers, to action combat thrillers. Basically, it has something for everyone.
So without further ado, let’s get right into it.
The six new games are:
Back 4 Blood
Available on: PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Microsoft Windows
Developed by the Turtle Rock Studios, Back 4 Blood is the rightful successor or as the creators like to call it the ‘Spiritual successor’ of the ‘Left 4 Dead’. This addition continues the legacy of its predecessor and carries forward a lot of key features from it.
The story involves a post-apocalyptic world that has been infected by a deadly extra-terrestrial parasite known as the Dead Worms. Once infected by these beings, the human beings in contact turn into undead mutants called the ‘Ridden’. Our protagonist is a part of a colony that is trying to survive this apocalypse in the fictional city of Finleyville.
This first-person shooter game consists of a multiplayer mode as well as a competitive mode. In the multiplayer mode, we are a part of the four-player group that tries to ward off and survive the Ridden. And in the competitive mode you can turn into those deadly zombies and chase after your friends in an attempt to infest them as well.
Forza Horizon 5
Available on: Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows
Forza Horizon is back with its latest, the Forza Horizon 5 and we are all for it. The game is bigger, better and absolutely amazing. The development team, Playground Games had already announced that their new release would be bigger than any of its predecessors and true to their words, the video game is around 50 percent bigger than Forza Horizon 4.
The developers chose Mexico as the base representation of the game and it is an absolute experience to see the fictional Mexico through Forza Horizon 5. The game also consists of a robust weather system that influences the weather and conditions related to that and incorporates the same in races. For example if it’s raining, the tracks would be slippery or muddy and the visibility would lower, or if it’s snowing then the conditions will differ accordingly. The game has been praised a lot to be able to bring such unprecedented change in a video game.
In all if you wish to explore the open environment of Mexico as you cruise around in your customisable car and character, Forza Horizon 5 won’t disappoint you.
Horizon Forbidden West
Available on : PS5 and PS4
PS4 boasted its prowess with the introduction of Horizon Zero West, which made headlines and awed the gaming community for months after its release. The video game presented a beautifully designed world that combined the fictional present and future in a spectacular way, thus building the foundation of the series that has formed a cult for itself today.
Aloy, the protagonist from Horizon Zero West is back as the protagonist of Horizon Forbidden West. Aloy has become one of the most iconic PlayStation exclusives characters over the years and we wouldn’t want it any other way. She announced herself with a powerful appearance in the launched trailer.
The game takes you to a post-apocalyptic US that has been plagued by nightmarish creatures and survivors that are struggling to make it the next day safe. The game is an open environment with missions and fights that lead to the video game.
The King of Fighter XV
Available on: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and Microsoft Windows.
Another addition to the legendary The King of Fighter series, KOF XV released on 17th February 2022. The video game was the first to use the Unreal Engine 4 and also the GGPO rollback networking in the entire series.
The gameplay of the video game is very much similar to its predecessors and brings back its fighting nature and the competing in a group of three players.
The storyline involves the announcement of the next King of Fighters tournament, where the newly appointed commissioner Anastania sends out tournament invites to players both old and new. Also the deceased players are resurrected using some powers that let them participate in the forthcoming tournament.
Among the array of playable characters, KOF introduced Dolores who is not only striking in her appearance but also her unimaginable powers and the mysterious aura that she carries around with her.
Dying Light 2: Stay Human
Available on: PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X.
Another zombie thriller on the list and for all the right reasons. This sequel is set 20 years after the events of Dying Light.
The new video game features a complete new setting, new characters and a new storyline. Talking about the storyline, the team of Dying Light 2 hired writers that wrote the action thriller video game- Witcher 3.
The gameplay has also been upgraded by folds in this latest. The iconic ‘parkour’ has been polished and is an entire sublime experience on its own. You start off as a newbie and then acquire new skills and talents from the skill tree.
Stamina is another important aspect that influences your gameplay.
The combat which had a lot of glitches in the last game, has been worked upon and is far better than the last installment.
Available on: PS5, PS4 and Microsoft Windows.
Sifu, a hand to hand combat thriller from the indie French studios Sloclap is an excellent addition to this list of new games to try. The gameplay is played from a third-person perspective. The game has a series of action plays or moves as you can call them.
There are around 150 amazing and unique attacks that can also be used in combination for a more powerful and deadly attack.
The player can use several environmental features to boost their fighting against an enemy. They can make use of different things from their surroundings as makeshift weapons.
The player is also presented with options to avoid the brawl completely through dialogue conversations. The game has a lot to look forward to.
