Microsoft is very up to date with the Game Pass, so I would say a number of great titles will be available as part of the subscription day. What I would be curious about anyway is Sony’s response to launching a similar service of its own. There are already several rumors circulating on the internet about the launch of one, but no specific announcements have been received yet. Maybe this will revive the battle of the consoles as well. Well, let’s see which games we expect the most from next year’s production!
Rainbow Six Extraction
Instead of tactical PVP, the franchise has now shifted to a cooperative PVE style. Our well-known operators must now work together to fight a parasitic lifestyle. In teams of three, you will have to perform various tasks in the areas occupied by the alien way of life. According to the original announcement, it would have appeared in January 2020, but after several adjournments, it will be released in 2022. In addition to the filing date, its name has also changed. It would have originally run under the name Rainbow Six Quarantine, but for that reason it hasn’t proven to be a very good choice from a marketing standpoint, so they’ve changed it.
Horizon: Forbidden West
The sequel to the hugely successful Horizon is finally coming to the delight of many. Our protagonist, Aloy, will explore the mysterious landscapes of the so-called Forbidden West. There are also important changes to the gameplay. We will have a more advanced melee system, redesigned climbing and transportation options. In addition, Aloy’s toolkit is expanded, including a shield that can be used as a parachute and a diving mask. The development has already taken into account the new features offered by the PlayStation 5. It will have better graphics and shorter load times compared to the PS4 version. The PS5 will also feature a “performance mode” that guarantees 60 fps with reduced graphics settings.
Destiny 2: The Witch Queen
Destiny 2’s sixth addition to The Witch continues the story of Queen Savathon, who was the main character in The First Game’s first major addition, The Taken King. We will visit Savath? N Throne World, where in addition to the historical mode, new raids and dungeons will be waiting for us. New and existing quests are given a new “Legendary” difficulty level, designed to provide challenging one-man missions with increased rewards. The add-on also brings a new type of weapon to the game. The “glaive” (pallos) will be a melee weapon with limited mid-range combat capabilities. The makers claim that crafting will not be exactly like other MMO games.
It’s been awaited a lot and it seems to finally really show up. The name Dark Souls may already sound familiar to those who aren’t fighting gamers anyway. The makers of the famously heavy game series are coming up with a new title, this time in a slightly more open form. On the writer side, the name of George RR Martin also strengthens their team. After a linear lead-in, we will be taken to an open world where we can explore the world as we please. The new version of the iconic bonfire will now be not only a resting point, but also a central part of the express travel system.
Our character also gets a horse as the main means of transportation we can even fight for. After Sekiro, the stamin system also returns, but in a much less important role. The game’s death system will also be a bit more permissive, and there will be some assistive features in the game to help you progress. Cooperative play will continue to be available and will be part of PVP. For the first time, our character will finally be able to jump!
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl
Initially, the sequel was mowed back in 2012, and later development began again on a foundation based on Unreal Engine 5. According to the number, the fourth game once again takes us to Chernobyl, where we can write our own story in an open world. We will have an area of 64 km ?, and the developers promise a non-linear story awaits us with more finishing options. We will have more than 30 different weapon types at our disposal, the developments of which we are free to combine.
There’s even a multiplayer mode planned, which will be available as a free upgrade after release. Currently, the decision of the makers that NDP (non-fungible tokens) will be used in the game has stirred up a lot of dust, and this has unleashed the fuse for many. If this is indeed the case, the game will probably disappear from the Steam store as well, as they have a strong anti-NFT policy in place.
It has also long been rumored that Bethesda is making a “space Skyrim,” and it wasn’t that long ago that it was actually proven. It’s a completely next-generation game that is also the first all-new Bethesda-IP in more than 25 years. This game will finally use Creation Engine 2, the predecessor of which has been in use since 2011. Not much is known about the project yet, only a few photos and a release date of 11/11/2022 have been released. So much for sure, for now, we can talk about an exclusive title for the Xbox console, which was almost certain after the acquisition of Microsoft, but that’s why we can hope for a better PC version.
Shadow Warrior 3
One of Devolver’s pull titles will also get a new section next year. We will be able to experience another adventure of our demon-hunting protagonist Lo Wang in a feudal Japan combined with magic and technology. It is clear from the promotional materials that the existing foundations have been combined with the Doom Eternal style of play. The grappling hook, running on the wall and jumping in the air will play a big role. The tracks will be quite spacious and there will be enough space for free movement. There will be elements that can be activated on the tracks, with which we will be able to control the course of the fight as we wish. Last but not least, they keep the humor and style of our character, so there will still be no shortage of tiring jokes!
Total War: Warhammer III
We close our list with a new part of the warhammer version of the Total War series. The focus of the current part is on the chaos gods: Nurgle, Slaanesh, Tzeentch and Khorne. In addition, two more human factions, Cathay and Kislev, and one Ogre Kingdoms will be available as a pre-order bonus when it is released. We can expect significant changes in battle mechanics, which will be in line with the huge campaign map. Such changes include, for example, switchable aircraft units, which can now be airplane and ground units as we wish, thus providing us with additional strategic opportunities.
Healing abilities are now counted on a percentage basis instead of a fixed value, giving you more opportunities to reduce your effectiveness with other abilities (such as fire). Sieges are also undergoing change, especially for defenders: more walls and other defenses are becoming available. Diplomacy is also undergoing some change, as we will not be able to trade with the gods of chaos very much.
