2022 is a big year for gaming. If not for the many amazing games coming out next year, then the fact that three different GOTY winners will be receiving their sequels (or, in the case of Elden Ring, the next game) and potentially facing each other as a grand finale. Not sure what's coming out, or what to look forward to? Look no further, for here are the top games coming out in 2022!

#1 - Monster Hunter: Rise

Monster Hunter: Rise feels like the perfect sequel to Monster Hunter: World, released exclusively for Nintendo Switch. However, the game now has a Steam release date, and a demo already available to play with five missions including three hunts and Co-op.

Monster Hunter: Rise is set to release on PC on the 12th of January on Steam.

#2 - Pokémon Legends: Arceus

January is going to be a spicy month, with not one, not two, but three wonderful and anticipated titles releasing. Although unfortunately the first in the list not getting a PC release, Pokémon Legends: Arceus is the next game in the Pokémon universe. It has faced several controversies already, with one of them being its Pokedex seemingly lacking with 400 different Pokémon intended including DLC when Sword and Shield had 400 in the base game - which suffered a controversy of its own for the same problem.

The game will also feature a hub similar to the Monster Hunter franchise instead of the open-world fans were expecting.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus will be released on the 28th of January for the Nintendo Switch.

#3 - Life is Strange Remastered Collection

Life is Strange Remastered Collection will feature both Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm remastered. Some of the improvements include higher quality visuals across the characters and the environments and more fluid character animation.

Life is Strange Remastered Collection is set to release on the 1st of February, on PC, Google Stadia, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X| S.

#4 - Dying Light 2 Stay Human

Dying Light 2 Stay Human was originally set to release on the 7th of December but has been pushed back to 2022.

The sequel to Dying Light, it will have choices that impact the story and keep us parkouring through The City, one of the last human settlements. It's one I'm personally very excited for after the original!

Dying Light 2 Stay Human is set to release on the 4th of February on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC.

#5 - Horizon Forbidden West

You can get off the edge of your seat now, Horizon Forbidden West has made it to the list!
