Last year has been an interesting one for developers and studios, given how hard the pandemic hit the United States. If anything, it’s set up a video game release calendar for 2022 that’s unmatched in the industry. If you’re finding it difficult to catch up with all the latest Singapore news on the games to come, fear not.
Even if half of this year’s most hyped games are delayed until 2022, it will still be a great year for gaming. As a result, the schedule is chock-full right now, and the first half of the season is shaping up wonderfully.
Horizon Forbidden West
Horizon Forbidden West is slated to be among the first triple-A releases in 2022. Horizon Zero Dawn 2 will arrive in 2020, according to Sony. Guerrilla Games has confirmed that the game will be released on February 18, 2022, rather than this year as originally intended.
In Horizon Forbidden West’s combat, traversal, and playstyles, everything seems to be headed in the correct path. Assuming the tale is as good as it appears to be, it’s one to keep an eye on this year.
Forspoken’s smooth gameplay and narrative-driven tale in an open environment have drawn a lot of attention. It tells the story of Frey Holland, a female protagonist who is taken from New York City to a fantasy realm where she must utilize her magical abilities to traverse the land, save it, and return home.
It’ll be interesting to watch how that interaction plays out with her sentient bracelet named Cuff throughout the story. Developers promised that a lot more information will be available in the following months across many Singapore news outlets.
This year’s Saints Row remake takes the series back to its roots in a unique way. The city is divided into nine unique districts, each of which can be taken over by players and used to create businesses and other ventures.
There is now a co-op, and players can construct their own boss in the game, as well as unique task progression in Saints Row. It’s worth checking on, even if some fans aren’t thrilled with the route the Saints are taking.
Even though Bayonetta 2 made its debut in 2014, many fans hoped and prayed for a third installment. However, despite the fact that 8 years have likely put an end to many games, the old adage holds true: absence indeed makes the heart grow fonder.
It was revealed in September 2021 that a release date of 2022 had been set for Bayonetta 3. As a result of this, not only was anticipation for the action game’s release increased, but also questions regarding the story’s world, characters, and setting have been raised. You can bet that lots will be keeping a close eye on SG news all throughout the year.
God of War: Ragnarok
Kratos’ Norse odyssey comes to a close with Ragnarok. Kratos and his son Atreus are on a quest to find Tyr, the Norse god of war, as they appear to be faced against Asgardians, Freya, and Thor.
Along with the likes of Tyr and Thor, other mythological characters, such as the giantess Angrboda, will make their debuts. If you missed the recent news in Singapore about this game, the earlier God of War game will be released on January 14, 2022, on PC for the very first time.
It’s been a long time coming, but there has been a Harry Potter RPG reported being in the works for considerably longer as fans have desired it. Even before Hogwarts Legacy has been announced officially to be in development, there were numerous leaks of its trailers.
Although Hogwarts Legacy was delayed until 2022, it’s certainly worth the wait to lovers of the franchise. Looking forward to seeing what comes out of all the waiting and hoping throughout the years.
Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sequel
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, or whatever the final name is, is the last but most surely not least. Even though its recent teaser finished with 2022 on the screen, there is a real chance that players may soar across the skies of Hyrule this year. Perhaps you just have to stay up to date with all the latest news in Singapore to not miss it.
Nintendo fans could be in for a wonderful treat this year, if that is the case, thanks to games like Kirby, Bayonetta, and so much more—which is not surprising given how Nintendo titles led various 2021 sales rankings.
