Unlike 2021, 2022 promises to take you on a high road to potentially fantastic games.

First Quarter

Like other first quarters of the previous years, the gaming world is filled with a wide range of exciting and top video games for 2022. How about we check out these games?


Let’s break the ice by saying Happy New Year! Welcome to another incredible year in the gaming space. No doubt, this period comes with a load of exciting video games, irrespective of the genre or device.

If permitted, we could easily nickname this month the role-playing action month. Not often would you see a month backpacked with so many exciting action video games. Of all these action role-playing games, Stranger of paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is worth discussing. Having secretly watched the trailer and read the storyline, we can assure you that this game is worthy of its hype. Once released, this video event would be available for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and Microsoft Windows. Besides this video game, other amazing action role-playing events set to be available in February 2022 include Babylon’s Fall, Tunic, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands which is also FSP, and many more.

If it is a racing game you are looking to see, we give you an accolade for reading to this stage. Unlike the previous two months where no developer is launching any racing event, you get to play Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo 7 on March 4, 2022. Since this game was announced in 2020, the first multiplayer console installment comes with the series. Whether you own a PS4 or PS5, you can always race Championship, Special Events, or trucks and vehicles, depending on your taste.

Another must discussed video game set to hit the market in March is the Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V. Although these online events already exist in the gaming market with their release day dated back to 2013, these new versions are new for different platforms. Previously, GTA V and GTA Online were for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Win, by 2022, we will see new versions available for Xbox Series X/S and PS5. However, we don’t have the exact launching date for these games. Nevertheless, not knowing the specific date doesn’t stop you from preparing for these video games' arrival. While you wait for the launching date, you should visit the market and get these devices ready for the show.

Before we move to the second quarter, we would like you to know that by March 15, 2022, the popular fighting video game titled Phantom Breaker: Omnia developed by Mages alongside GameLoop will hit the market, get ready!!!

Second Quarter

Unlike the first quarter, the second quarter of 2022 will witness a limited number of video games. Even with the short number of games to play, these online events prepared to enter that period's gaming space are top-notch video games. Let’s check them out!


If you were at E3 2021, you would recall Nintendo promised a remake of Black Hole Rising alongside the original Advance Wars. We are happy to inform you that these games are set to make a unique return to the gaming space. However, this time, they aren’t coming as individual games, instead a new compilation named Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp. This Turn-based strategy video game will be officially available on April 8, 2022, but played only on Nintendo.

When we told you at the beginning of this part that the second quarter of this new year is small but mighty, you might have thought we were only exaggerating. See what we got! S.T.A.L.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl. No doubt, it's been a while you had seen or gotten anything from S.T.A.L.K.E.R since 2013 when it released Call of Pripyat. We are more than happy to inform you that this developer is back with a big bang. This FPS and survival horror game will appear in the gaming space on April 28, 2022, and will be only played on Xbox Series X/S and Microsoft Windows. Another top game you should look out for that month is the Curse of the Sea Rats, but this video game has no exact release date. Nevertheless, this video game is released for XBO, PS4, NS, and Win.


For the first two weeks in May 2022, no new games would hit or appear for your consumption. So, you have to continue to feed on the existing top games in April until May, 19th 2022, when you would welcome the arrival of the top-notch Big Bad wolf’s Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong. One big draw of this game is its design for the new PS5, Xbox Series X/S, the old Nintendo Switch, and Microsoft Windows. This video game is a fun-filled role-playing online event you should not miss out in the coming years.

Like the previously discussed video game, The Forest, also known as Sons of the Forest, is another thrilling survival horror video game scheduled for May 2022. It is set to appear in the gaming world 20th, a day after the release of Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong. Unlike the popular survival games you are used to, this event comes with something special. Perhaps, we can tag that particular thing as having your fate in your hands. You aren’t playing with any prepared mission or quest; instead, the choice to empower your players with any task lay in your hands. So, while moving your console with your hands, you also have your players’ fate to move. In 2018, this video game was released for PS4 and Wins, and we expect it to be available for higher platforms in the coming years.


The second quarter of 2022 rounds up with two fantastic video games titled Yurukill: The Culmination Game and the Steelrising. While the former is set to be released on June 7, 2022, the latter has no exact release date yet. Nevertheless, we will be bringing the news of the release date to your doorstep once we have it in our book. While Steelrising is a top action role-playing and souls-like video game, Yurukill is a Shoot ‘em up the match, but both online events are worth checking out.

Wrap Up

From this post, you can quickly tell that 2022 is what we can’t all wait to happen to the gaming world. Whether you are a lover of FPS, fighting, sports, racing, or survival video games, 2022 is prepared to offer an unforgettable gaming period for you. Happy New Year from Ultimate Tournament!
