Which 15 most wanted games still coming in 2022?

It may be getting colder outside, but 2022 is far from over, as evidenced by the stacked lineup of upcoming PS4 and PS5 titles. The next few months are shaping up to be some of the best for PlayStation gamers, with top-tier FPS action, critically acclaimed indie adventures, the return of fan-favorite JRPG classics, and beloved characters venturing into new gaming territories. And, of course, there's God of War Ragnarök, which is on the way. With so many exciting new games releasing in 2022, let's take a look at some of the year's most notable titles.




Tunic In one of the year's most talked-about indie hits, an itty-bitty fox dressed in bright green garb embarks on a great big adventure. Tunic is a labor of love from independent creator Andrew Shouldice, who has created a delightful isometric action-adventure game with his talented team that pays homage to genre classics while creating a beautiful and unique world of its own. Discover tools, treasures, and abilities, solve environmental puzzles, battle fierce monsters, and even decode a mysterious alphabet to find clues to help you on your quest.




Have you ever had an eye-searing, brain-pounding head rush in which blood appears to be pumping and pulsing through your head and your heart is pounding... but in a good way? Welcome to the world of Post Void, a game that combines classic FPS gameplay with brightly colored, high-contrast visuals that are designed to make you blissfully uncomfortable. As you race through retro-styled FPS levels as quickly as possible, the neon scenery and delightfully grotesque enemies will sear into your eyeballs. Because your brain will melt if you don't move quickly and kill everything even faster (literally in-game, figuratively IRL). Post Void is a discordant experience that you will not soon forget. (Please keep in mind that this game is not suitable for players who are sensitive to flashing lights.)



Elysium, Valkyrie

There will be plenty of Norse mythology on PlayStation in the coming months, beginning with Square-action-RPG Enix's revival Valkyrie Elysium. As Ragnarök approaches, a desperate Odin summons a Valkyrie warrior, Maria, the last hope for a world in ruin and despair. The Einherjar, souls of fallen warriors, assist Maria, each with their own story and motivation. They bestow boons on Maria as she engages in deft, action-packed, combo-heavy combat. Use your companions and skills to increase your Arts Gauge and unleash the glorious Divine Arts on your enemies! However, keep an eye out because Maria isn't the only Valkyrie in this world with a mission to complete. (Don't forget that Valkyrie Elysium's digital deluxe edition also includes the original all-time PSP classic Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth.)



A Plague Tale: Requiem

In this highly anticipated sequel to the fan-favorite adventure game A Plague Tale: Innocence, Amicia and her younger brother Hugo have fled their oppressors at home. The Provence region of France appears to be a good starting point for the couple. However, the black plague continues to spread, and Hugo's supernatural abilities are proving difficult for his young mind to control. Is Hugo's strange ability's secret hidden on a mysterious island? The two will have to embark on another perilous journey, this time aided only by a few trusted friends. There will be difficult environmental puzzles, new weapons and tools to combat threats, emotional story moments galore, and rats. Oh, there are so many rats.



The Gotham Knights

Batman is no longer alive, and Gotham City has gone to hell in a handbasket without its most prominent crime-fighter. Robin, Night wing, Batgirl, and Red Hood, among Batman's various proteges, are now working to clean up the streets and investigate Batman's alleged death. Choose one of four heroes, each with their own combat abilities, and embark on action-RPG missions in a stunning open-world Gotham City, uncovering hidden mysteries and confronting a rogue's gallery of famous villains. But what is a superhero story without a spectacular team-up? Gotham Knights features seamless drop-in, drop-out co-operative play, allowing you and an intrepid companion to explore and fight for Gotham City's future together.



New Tales from the Borderlands

Things are getting strange in the Borderlands universe—at least stranger than usual. Tales from the Borderland's returns players to one of gaming's strangest and wildest settings in an all-new narrative adventure set in Promethea. Rather than simply shooting your way out of problems, New Tales from the Borderlands will feature a branching storyline in which your dialogue choices will determine where affable jackasses Anu, Fran, and Octavia end up stumbling next during an extremely miserable day. You'll be enjoying the bizarre situations, snappy dialogue, and pervasive strange humour that have made Borderlands such an enduring hit as our would-be heroes get themselves into (and out of) another fine mess.



 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Call of Duty is well-known among gamers as the largest and most influential first-person shooter series. Modern Warfare II features some of the most radical and exciting changes to classic COD gameplay in the series' history. Improved AI, new movement options such as swimming and sliding, improved vehicle interactions (such as the ability to fire out of windows), realistic damage, and a massive overhaul to the Gunsmith, which will allow players to fine-tune their weapon attachments to create their ideal firearms.


CoD's beloved multiplayer is also getting a boost with two new modes: Knockout, a 6v6 competition to be the last team standing with a valuable package, and Prisoner Rescue, in which one team of players attempts to breach a compound to rescue hostages from a heavily fortified structure, while the opposing side defends their turf and works to put them down. Whether you're interested in the campaign or want to compete in multiplayer—or both—Modern Warfare 2 has a lot to offer.



The Skull and Bones

Do you hear what I'm saying? The high seas call... the waters beg to be conquered and plundered! It's the end of the 17th century, the Golden Age of Piracy, and the Indian Ocean is teeming with traders hauling exotic wares from the far east—ideal targets for the era's pirates. You'll start as a no-name scoundrel and work your way up to become the most feared name among the region's seafarers. Sail the vast open seas in a ship you design, accepting quests from various figures of ill repute to increase your fortune and infamy. But beware: rival pirate crews, naval armies, and even natural forces threaten to crush your dreams of ocean glory.



Sonic frontier

The most famous hedgehog on the planet requires little introduction. Sonic and his posse are off to the Starfall Islands in search of the Chaos Emeralds in their latest adventure. Longtime adversary Dr. Eggman tripped the island's advanced security system while trying to uncover the secrets of a lost civilization, opening rifts between the island world and the digital realm of Cyber Space. Sonic Frontiers is the first Sonic game to embrace open-world exploration, allowing players to dash, smash, and crash through stunning free-roaming environments using a variety of new movement and attack skills. In the Cyber Space levels, which harken back to classic Sonic stages, you'll also face traditional linear 3D platforming challenges. Can Sonic save his friends from Cyber Space and uncover the mystery of theStarfall Islands, and stop Dr. Eggman’s ambitions? 



God of War, Ragnarök

The long-awaited sequel God of War Ragnarök follows Kratos, his teenage son Atreus, and their advisor Mimir on their quest to avert the apocalypse and reveal the secrets of Atreus' destiny. On this epic journey through the Nine Realms, faces both familiar and new will appear, including Vanaheim, Svartalfheim, and the legendary Asgard.


As tempting as it is to take in the (awesome) scenery, these are war-torn lands, and Kratos will have to engage in the visceral combat that God of War fans have come to expect. New abilities and weaponry, such as the Dauntless and Stonewall shields, as well as new summons for Atreus, add flair and intensity to combat like never before. God of War Ragnarök is set to captivate players in November, so make sure you're there to witness the gods' twilight.



Goat Simulator 3

Have you ever wondered what life would be like if you were a goat with a penchant for fashion and destruction who also happened to have a complex physics engine at their disposal for wreaking havoc? Probably not, but you're certainly intrigued. Goat Simulator 3 (don't ask about Goat Simulator 2) is possibly the most bizarre and wild sandbox game yet. It's up to you, as the titular goat, to take action. Really, anything goes.


San Angora is your playground for goat-y and not-so-goat-like activities. Jetpacks! Vehicles! Explosions! Strange alien slime! Sports! Fashion that is customizable! Everything is here for a reason. What's more, you can form a herd with your friends for multiplayer madness to lick, headbutt, and have a goat-tastic time.



The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me

The premiere horror anthology series in gaming continues with a brand-new standalone story. A group of young, inexperienced documentary filmmakers is invited to a modern-day recreation of notorious conman-slash-serial-killer H.H. Holmes' infamous "Murder Hotel," a historical structure laden with all manner of diabolical killing devices and traps. The film crew soon finds themselves as subjects in the hands of a sick mastermind determined to become the most notorious murderer of all time inside the hotel. Can your posse survive a stay in the hell hotel and escape the "killing rooms"? You can play through this story alone or with friends: enjoy simultaneous online co-operative play or see who survives in controller-passing couch co-op. No matter how you play, you're in for a stay of a lifetime, as long as your protagonists survive.



The Callisto Protocol

The Callisto Protocol returns the survival horror genre to the cold, sprawling vastness of space. This game, led by Striking Distance Studio's Glen Schofield, co-creator of the original Dead Space, transports you to Callisto, a moon orbiting Jupiter in the year 2320. When a swarm of monstrous creatures begins to appear within the heavily fortified prison walls, protagonist Jacob Lee is serving time at the Black Iron prison colony.


Something truly terrible is going on within these anguished halls, and Jacob must uncover the prison's hidden secrets—and use the few resources he can scavenge to escape with his life. Even if you manage to escape, you'll have to deal with an ever-growing army of rapidly evolving bio-horrors. Remember, they may not be able to hear you scream in space, but your downstairs neighbour will definitely hear you screaming when you're playing The Callisto Protocol at 3 a.m. in the dark.



Marvel’s Midnight Suns

When most people think of comic-based games, they envision epic superpowered action-adventures. Midnight Suns, a Marvel game, is taking its titular heroes into a new dimension: turn-based strategy. Marvel's Midnight Suns is a massive crossover spectacular developed by Firaxis, the masterminds behind the legendary X-Com series of games. It offers deep, strategic gameplay that is every bit as challenging and intense as Marvel action games.


Step into the role of the Hunter, an otherworldly demon slayer you create and customise as you work to prevent the elder god Cththon's resurrection. Interact and form alliances with legendary heroes such as Wolverine, Iron Man, Blade, Captain America, and Spider-Man, then command them in battles that will put your mind and mettle to the test. Plan your moves carefully, then enter combat using a unique card-based action system to fully utilise your team's abilities.




Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion

Zack has returned. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is a remake of the PSP classic that follows Cloud's friend and up-and-coming Soldier through a turbulent series of events that lead directly into Final Fantasy VII's main story. A top-ranking Soldier named Genesis has deserted the organisation, and Zack needs to find out what they're up to while also uncovering some unpleasant Shinra corporate secrets. This comprehensive update will appeal to both old and new players, with fully voiced cutscenes, completely re-done graphics, and a revised combat system that incorporates elements of Final Fantasy VII Remake's ferocious fights. Best of all, you get to spend time with Zack, one of Final Fantasy VII's most beloved (yet frequently "forgotten") characters.
