Here are the 5 games we’re most looking forward to in the next 4 months. The end of the year will be fun.
Summer is already almost over, and autumn shows us the tip of the nose. We only have a handful of months left before we wrap up 2022. If the first half of the year was particularly rich in video game releases (Horizon Forbidden West, Elden Ring, Gran Turismo 7, Nintendo Switch Sports, Mario Strikers Battle League, etc.), the end of the year is not exempt.
This is therefore the perfect opportunity to take stock of the next video game releases and reveal to you the 5 productions that we expect the most from the editors at Nerd’s diary.
Put on your Phrygian caps, Steelrising will take you back to the French Revolution in a game that reinvents history with great strokes of imagination and technology. What if Louis XVI had an army of killer robots at his side during this period? This is exactly the situation that unfolds in this adventure game, which already promises us small-onion aesthetics and explosive gameplay. See you on September 8 to discover it on PlayStation, Xbox and PC.
Pokemon Purple and Scarlet
After Pokemon Legends: Arceusreleased at the beginning of the year, is it at all Purple and red to make their entrance. With these two opuses, we’re back to (almost) old-school Pokémon gameplay, with the exception of the open 3D world, which has been new to it since this year. You will then be able to discover new legendary Pokémon… which have the ability to transform into a motorcycle or even an airplane. Even better than a Transformer! Pokemon purple and red will be available from November 18 on Nintendo Switch.

A Plage Tale Requiem
The French adventure game A plague tale: Innocence there is finally a sequel and we eagerly await it after the results of the first opus. Amicia and Hugo still have a long way to go and secrets to uncover to unravel the mysteries of the young boy’s powers. If their relationship as brother and sister again becomes the core of the plot, we also and above all expect a good dose of black death, inquisition and gloomy atmosphere to complete the adventure. To discover October 18 on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.

God of War Ragnarok
This is definitely the game at the end of the year that we are most eagerly waiting for. The rest of Kratos and Atreus’ adventures will lead them to Ragnarök, which they will probably try to prevent. Nevertheless, they will encounter many obstacles in their path, starting with the Norse gods and demigods who frankly resent the intrusion of the Greek god of war into their realm. For this one it is on PS4 and PS5 that it will happen from November 9.
Pre-order God of War
We end with a game that is both highly anticipated and highly controversial due to the controversies surrounding creator JK Rowling. Hogwarts Legacy takes you a century before the birth of Harry Potter, to a magnificent Hogwarts full of secrets. As a wizard, you will have to fight the evil forces lurking around and inside the castle with your powers and your ruthlessness. The game is available on PlayStation, Xbox, PC and Nintendo Switch at an unknown date, probably around the end of the year holiday.
