The beauty of LEGO is that you can build anything, and that versatility also lends itself well to video games, as you can make any type of LEGO game. While you might immediately opt for Traveler’s Tales cooperative adventure/puzzle games, Red Games Co. is here to introduce a LEGO genre you might not have expected: multiplayer brawlers. Then again, the number of cooperative LEGO play sessions turning into fights means it shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Players will be able to create their own LEGO Minifigure character and make their way through different LEGO themed worlds, including Ninjago and more. LEGO Brawls features full crossover play with 4v4 team battles, along with a Battle Royale-inspired mode where players will fight until one player is left standing. It might not take down Multiversus, but it could be fun.

Gameloft has decided to bring you that fantasy as they have grouped some of Disney’s biggest properties into Disney Dreamlight Valley and let you live with these iconic characters.

A mechanical take on the French Revolution is definitely a more unique take on history, which is what makes Steelrising such an intriguing premise. King Louis XVI’s head is still going to roll, but instead of being the will of the people, it will be at the hands of an automaton masterpiece by the name of Aegis. That’s not how things were taught in school, but it could lead to one of the biggest sleeper hits of September 2022.

Players control Aegis, who must take on King Louis XVI’s mechanical army that is turning Paris into a wasteland. Steelrising itself is an action RPG that borrows some of its DNA from the Soulslike genre, with challenging combat and huge bosses the order of the day. With multiple weapons and abilities, you have full control over how you want to define Aegis’s combat style, which should hopefully be a rewarding experience.

On top of that, single player and co-op modes are also included, and there will be even more content to enjoy in the months after launch, making this one to keep an eye out for.

Ever since the success of the DOOM reboot in 2016, it seems the developers have been striving to get that lightning bolt back in a bottle, with some mixed results. Metal: Hellsinger has every chance of being one of the more successful attempts, as it takes what made DOOM such a huge hit and bumps it up to 11. Bigger guns, louder music, and a game that requires you to go to the swing; all of which make for a tempting cocktail.

As The Unknown, you will travel to the bowels of Hell to take on the worst the Underworld has to offer, with a variety of explosive and devastating weapons to wield. Of course, Metal: Hellsinger’s biggest selling point is the music, and the game features vocal work from some of metal’s biggest names, including Serj Tankian, Matt Heafy, Randy Blythe, Alissa White-Gluz, and more. .

Square Enix is ​​known for its JRPGs, but it’s also making waves in recent years with its Japanese strategy games like Octopath Traveler. DioField Chronicle is aiming to go down similar paths that previous Square strategy games have traveled, and it looks like it could be a real winner, especially considering it’s coming to all major platforms instead of just one or two.

In DioField Chronicles, players control a band of mercenaries called the Blue Foxes, who find themselves embroiled in a war between the expansionist Trovelt-Schoevian Empire and the Kingdom of Alletain. Rather than being a turn-based strategy game, The DioField Chronicle employs RTS elements and an XCOM-like free movement system to create something a little more unique.
