Game news PS5: The big game releases in late 2022
Like gamers, the video game industry goes on vacation during the summer. Excursions become less frequent and it is necessary to wait until the start of the school year in September before the calendar returns to its usual rhythm. On PlayStation 5 – as on other platforms – the end of the year promises to be busy! If you’re wondering what’s up at Sony, you’ve come to the right place.
The selection of games in this article is presented to you in chronological order. Good reading!
We start right away with the return of a well-known license, Saints Row, the new part of which does not even have a number. The title developed by Volition and published by Deep Silver has been announced clear as a restart and it is not to displease us. With the city of Santo Ileso, in the southwestern United States, as the setting for the game, the saga will soon reconnect with the offbeat atmosphere and uninhibited gameplay that characterizes it so much. “In this world (…) where factions fight for power – a group of young friends from nowhere begin their own criminal adventure for glory and success” explains the official website. Heavy in perspective!

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum
We continue with another well-known license, but which returns in a form that we did not necessarily expect: Lord of the Rings Gollum. You will have understood this – the main hero is Gollum, the creature who drops “my precious” all the time. The adventure allows you to discover details “that have not yet been told” about him, the developers explain: like his slavery in the dark tower or his stay with the elves of Mirkwood. What’s more, here we are in the presence of an authentic infiltration game – original to Lord of the Rings – with an influence of the choices on Gollum’s personality. Everything promises.

The last of us part 1
Who says busy back to school says big licenses – and who says big licenses on PS5 says The Last of Us Yes, right from the first episode, the Naughty Dog and Sony series has become a must. In September: players will be able to discover The Last of Us Part 1, a remake of the original adventures of Ellie and Joel, released in 2013. On the program, no change in the script, but completely reworked images, worthy of The Last of Us Part 2! The sets and especially the faces are now more believable than ever. We can’t wait to play it.

A Plage Tale Requiem
The end of the year certainly offers some good surprises, and next on the list is none other than A Plague Tale Requiem. Yes yes: the sequel to the well-known A Plague Tale Innocence, which seduced the press and players when it was released three years ago. The Asobo study is thus left to tell the remains of Amicia and Hugo her brother’s adventure. “Fleeing their painful past, they (ed. note) travel south (…) and try to start over there and control Hugo’s curse” the developers say. What to discover new sets, this time even more impressive technically. Rats and the plague will be part of it!

Tired of heroes and want more super? That’s good, because Gotham Knights is also coming at the end of the year. If you don’t know the project, it is an action and RPG game open world in the DC comics universe – takes place in Gotham City. Yep, the city that Batman is supposed to protect. But here the famous Dark Knight has passed the gun to the left and it’s up to the Batman family (Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, Robin) to take over. On the program, action and several playable heroes. It will be solid!

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2
Yes: like every year a new Call of Duty comes out before the end of the year. This time it’s Modern Warfare 2, the rebooted sequel to Modern Warfare released in 2019 (and not the one from the early 2010s, don’t get confused). Players will therefore have the opportunity to reconnect with the famous Special Unit 141, three years after the events of the previous opus. Ghost, John Prince, their friends will have to stop a terrorist plot that threatens the United States. The title will emphasize new phases of gameplay as well as a still very realistic treatment.

God of War Ragnarok
It is clear that for the end of the year on PS5 it is impossible to escape God of War Ragnarok, the sequel to the excellent God of War that was released in 2018. A new episode that is naturally highly anticipated, which will mark the continuation of the adventures of Kratos, the God of War – and his son Atreus. And knowing what happened at the end of the last part, we have the right to expect one epic tale. The two heroes will have to face the dreaded Ragnarok (the end of the world in Norse mythology) and cross all the nine kingdoms. In other words, we can’t wait to discover more.

The Callisto Protocol
With the end of the year, the low heat will make us shiver, but something else will be the reason. We are of course talking about The Callisto Protocol, a new horror game from Glen Schofield, creator of the legendary Dead Space series. The man will thus mark a return to everything that made him successful in the past: lonely fear in space, against very aggressive monsters. “The player will embody Jacob Lee, a man who is a victim of his fate, sent to rot in the Black Iron prison, a maximum security prison located on Callisto, a moon of Jupiter” explains the man and his studio. It is definitely a new reference of the genre that is announced!

Final Fantasy 7: Crisis Core Reunion
Want more cult series? So why not let yourself be tempted by Final Fantasy 7: Crisis Core Reunion. Yes, it is one remake / remaster of the famous Crisis Core released in 2008 on the PSP (it’s not making us any younger). On the program is a new game engine, completely rebuilt 3D models, complete dubbing and new musical arrangements. More than enough to (re)discover the adventures of Zack Fair – member of SOLDIER, where he met the famous cloud. Prepare your wallet for the winter holidays, it looks warm.

The best for last – as they say! Impossible not to have heard of the legacy of Hogwarts – or the legacy of Hogwarts in VO – the long-awaited one The RPG takes place in the world of Harry Potter. But in this adventure set in the 19th century: the most famous bespectacled wizard and his friends will not be a part of it. The player, who can create his hero from A to Z and follow courses, will have to trace his own path as an ancient magic awakens. You will therefore have all the joys of the open world, with Hogwarts and its surroundings to explore!
