Are you wondering what to play next? Check out the best upcoming PC games of 2022 and find your next favourite game.

With the new year finally upon us, it’s time to leave 2021 behind. 2021 was a difficult year for everyone, especially for gamers. With so many titles being delayed because of the pandemic, 2021 was a year to take comfort in colorful stories like It Takes Two or let out your anger with Back 4 Blood. 

Now that 2022 is here, it’s time to look forward to what is waiting just over the horizon. With a long list of highly anticipated titles, 2022 will surely be one of the biggest years for gaming. Some of the games we couldn’t get our hands on last year because of the delays are also coming out this year. Based on the trailers, studios took this extra time to work on the games even more and make the most of next-generation gaming systems. 

What is great about 2022 is that there is something for everyone this year. There are long-awaited AAA titles such as Elden Ring coming. There are also indie darlings like OlliOlli World waiting to meet the gamers. While some PC games like Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War will get new entries, there are also brand-new adventures to be had like Elden Ring. 

We know that there are many more games that have yet to be announced in 2022 and some of the games we are waiting for may be pushed to 2023. But as of now, these are our 6 most anticipated games of 2022!

1. Elden Ring

Release Date: February 25, 2022

Having won “The Most Anticipated Game” title in the Game Awards 2 years in a row, Elden Ring is without a doubt is on everyone’s top of the list of games to play. Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R. R. Martin formed an unlikely alliance to bring to life this open-world RPG.

Set in a medieval fantasy land filled with rich lore, an immersive fighting system, and incredible visuals, Elden Ring invites you to embark on a dangerous quest and become the Elden Lord. If you want to lose yourself in a rich fantasy world, Elden Ring is just the right game for you!

2. Lord of the Rings: Gollum

Release Date: TBC 2022

This year, Lord of the Rings fans will return to Middle Earth again with Lord of the Rings: Gollum by Daedalic Entertainment. Just in time for the TV series set to debut on Amazon Prime in September, don’t you think? 

Driven by the desire to have the One Ring, Gollum has not only lost his life but also himself. Now, it’s time to go back to the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit to relive the tale from the perspective of one of the most tragic victims of the ring. 

Unlike Shadow of Mordor, this game will trace the events of the books, start in Barad-dûr where he’s being held captive, and take you through the breathtaking locations of Middle Earth. Since Gollum isn’t much of a fighter and relies more on his agility, sneakiness, and cunningness, the game will focus more on stealth rather than fights with orcs. You need to outsmart your foes in order to survive. After all, isn’t that what Gollum does best? However, your enemies aren’t the only thing you need to worry about. Gollum will also have an inner battle with Smeagol along the way. Who wins will be up to you. Is it going to be the darker side of Gollum or the spark of goodness in Smeagol? At least what’s left of it. Whatever happens, we know this game will be precious to you.
