An exciting weekend has come and gone with Gamescom 2022 officially behind us. While not everyone was able to physically attend the event, there were plenty of live shows on YouTube and Twitch to enjoy. Of course, the height of the emotion was the upcoming games list we can see in 2023 and beyond.
As I love to do, I have made our own list of the The best games of Gamescom 2022 that I can’t wait to get our hands on when they finally release. There were a few others that I’m looking forward to playing, but I had to draw a line somewhere. Otherwise, you’ll be here reading all day.
If you are a fan of Elder Scrolls Online, you will surely enjoy Dune Awakening. It’s going to be an MMORPG in a massive open world with various Dune elements. The trailer shows you jumping on one of the huge worms, which I hope will turn into a means of transportation.
You may remember from my review of Dune: Spice Wars that I am a huge fan of Frank Herbert’s work. To be able to play in an open world within a MMO environment It’s so tempting that I’ll be waiting for all the news about this game. Dune Awakening is sure to be a title that will keep us playing for years to come.
One of the Gamescom 2022 games coming soon is Return to Monkey Island, with a release date set for September 19, 2022. ’90s gamers like me will remember how much fun the initial Monkey Island was. Well we headed back to adventure with a new sequel.
As Guybrush returns, the islands are not as you remember them. There is a new leadership at stake, which means new adventures and puzzles. Of course, she has yet to discover the secrets that await on the mysterious Monkey Island.
Here’s a new entry from Bandai Namco that I only heard about during Gamescom 2022. It’s been an incredibly long time since I’ve played a theme park simulation game, and Park Beyond looks outstanding so far. I definitely can’t wait to try it out when it arrives in 2023.
The Park Beyond show trailer and screenshots massive theme park grounds with colors galore. There are rides you would never have dreamed of, many of which try to defy gravity as much as possible. The trick will be to attract as many visitors as possible without losing life or limb.
Probably one of the most anticipated Warner Bros. games in 2023, Gotham Knights is an upcoming action role playing game with an open world environment. With Teen Titans on Netflix already setting the stage for these heroes, you can now play as them after Batman’s death.
That’s right, the caped crusader or the dark knight is dead. Criminals are taking over Gotham City, but the new Gotham Knights won’t let it go. You will also have to deal with corrupt police officers, which is the nature of the doomed city. Are you ready to take back the night?
While we’re on the Warner Bros. train, here’s another open world role playing game set in the Harry Potter universe. Hogwarts Legacy already had high expectations before Gamescom 2022. You play as a character in the 19th century, long before Harry set foot in the school.
As you learn spells and ways to defend yourself, you also discover an ancient secret that can threaten the wizarding world. There is the promise of many magical creatures, potions and spells. It may just be the biggest Hogwarts game to ever grace our screens. It’s a shame I won’t be able to see Hermione.
Also known in some circles as Eclipse, Destiny 2: Lightfall is a upcoming downloadable content to the base game. The Witness is coming, who is destined to end all things. There are new powers to discover in the campaign, and it will welcome Season 20 when it launches in late February 2023.
I tried to play Destiny 2 once, but I was so involved with other online games at the time that I couldn’t give it the attention it deserves. The new downloadable content looks so spectacular that I wonder if I’ll have enough time to catch up before it’s over. new package arrives Apparently a new subclass is also coming.
My nephew loves this series, and Goat Simulator 3 will be here in November 2022 according to Gamescom 2022. It has all the key ingredients you’ll want from being a goat. That’s how it is; for those who don’t know this franchise, you run like a goat in this sandbox open world game.
However, there is much to do, such as completing quests for NPC. For the most part, players simply want to cause as much chaos as possible as a goat. Goat Simulator 3 promises to give you as much fun as possible with this animal, even with some amazing skins. (No goats were harmed in the making of this article..)
It is very sad that I have not yet had this game in my hands, since I am a great lover of the first and horror in general. With the base game recently released in February 2022, we already have Dying Light 2 Stay Human: Bloody Ties. announced for october. I’ll have to make a plan to play it before the DLC arrives.
Interestingly, the DLC contains a great story for Dying Light 2. As you try to achieve fame and fortune, you end up dealing with a revenge plot. Of course, you can expect tons of undead during your missions.
When I first heard about Deliver Us Mars during the Summer Games Festival, I was already excited. Gamescom 2022 revealed that we can expect to see it in February 2023, and it can’t be soon enough. Love planets and explore themthat this game will allow us to do.
The story revolves around one of the ARK colony ships going silent. You head to Mars to find out what went wrong. While you are there, you discover that something sinister is going on. Will you be able to find the answers before the humans of Earth run out of time?
The upcoming horror game announced at Gamescom 2022 is a mix of the old with the new. We already had Layers of Fear and Layers of Fear 2. It seems that Blooper Team went back to the drawing board and used both games as the basis for the new improved version.
That means you’ll continue to explore artists’ obsessions but in a new light. There’s a extended story, and you will have some more items to use in the horrible adventure. What makes it so spectacular is the Unreal Engine 5 technology and the first-person horror perspective.
