The Online Games we Cannot Wait to Play in 2022

2022 is set to be a ground-breaking year for video games. Never before inhuman history has gaming been so popular and ThisGenGaming are delighted to bring to you an extended list of our most anticipated games of 2022.

We have done our best to highlight a mix of different games from the top upcoming horror games such as Atomic Heart to high profile gamling games including Slingo slots as well as our pick of the top adventure games.

So, sit back and relax and allow us to wet your appetite.

Horror Themes

Horror themed games are almost always fun to play as you never know what to expect from them. The best horror games keep a delicate balance of suspense and action. We have loved the recent Resident Evil releases and we truly hope that the horror genre really kicks on in 2022 and beyond. Here are a few of our most anticipated horror game releases.

Atomic Heart

Release Date – 2022

Platform: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

The design of this game is both gorgeous and creepy at the same time. Atomic Heart is an open-world action/RPG set for release on all major consoles and PC sometime in 2022. The game takes place in an alternate reality during the time of the Soviet Union. You will find yourself having to clear up the mess made by the government; a mess of monsters which you must find and destroy.

Choo-Choo Charles

Release Date – 2022

Platform: PC

Choo-Choo Charles is essentially a toddlers nightmare made into a PC game! An open world action game, your mission is to navigate an old train through a fog covered landscape. You are able to upgrade the trains armour and weapons as you fend off attacks from the landscape monsters. The biggest monster of them all? A giant spider/train hybrid which is always on your tail.

Dead Space (Remake)

Release Date – 2022

Platform: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PC

What better way to reestablish a franchise than by remaking a fantastic 2008 original? EA will retain the basic concept of the original Dead Space but will add some ‘interesting’ features. One of the scariest games of all time, we truly hope the remake will offer us some additional scares in addition to the fantastic gameplay and setting of the original.


Release Date – 2022

Platform: PlayStation 5, PC

A first person adventure through a completely deserted Tokyo city. Well, not entirely deserted. Ghostwire: Tokyo will see the protagonist look to use his supernatural abilities and hand gestures to vanquish the new and creepy inhabitants of Tokyo’s streets. 

Evil Dead: The Game

Release Date – May 13 2022

Platform: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

Lastly on our list of upcoming horror games we have Evil Dead: The Game. Less scary and more beat-em-up, this is a mixture of co-op and online multiplayer action where you must work as a team to explore the world, gather supplies and beat and batter the hideous monsters. This game encompasses many characters from the other Evil Dead games including Ash, Scotty and Lord Arthur.

Adventure Games

Adventure games help to quench the natural human thirst for adventure.Whilst you may not be able to travel back in time or go into outer space yourself, you can allow the best adventure video games to transport you there.

Deliver us the Moon

Release Date – May 19 2022

Platform: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S

Already available to be played if you are a PC gamer, Deliver us the Moon is a thrilling space exploration game where you must discover and explore an abandoned moon base. This is perhaps the most realistic space exploration game ever released where every decision you make will matter.


Release Date – May 20 2022

Platform: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

We didn’t know whether to include Dolem in the horror or adventure category, but we ended up choosing adventure although it could go in either. Dolem is an upcoming Sci-Fi RPG and is a mix of Dark Souls-esque combat mixed with Lovecraftian horror. This reminds us a little of Halo as your mission is to take out and destroy thousands of hostile aliens.

Gotham Knights

Release Date – October 25 2022

Platform: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

DC fans rejoice. Gotham Knights is shaping up to be one of the best games of 2022. Set for release in October, this is for me the game I am looking forward to the most. Although not too much is known about it right now, I truly hope Gotham Knights delivers.

Fun and Silly

Some of the top new games releases consist of games labelled as fun and silly. From a cat cafe to building and running your own college campus, here’s our pick of fun and silly games which will be released soon.

Cat Cafe Manager

Release Date – April 14  2022

Platform: Switch, PC

If you have ever wondered what it would be like to open up your own cat cafe, then now is your chance. Cat Cafe is a fun game set for release on PC and Nintendo Switch which allows you to build and manage your own cat cafe. You have the choice to adopt as many cats as you can handle.

Release Date – May 17  2022

Set to open its doors in May, Two Point Campus lets you build and run your own college campus. Fans of Two Point Hospital will love this release. The success of your university will depend on the performance of your students, and it is up to you to ensure that they learn. You can build the funniest campus out there. This game almost guarantees a fun time and we cannot wait for it to come out.

Mario Strikers: Battle League

Release Date – June 10  2022

Platform: Switch

If there is one series which can offer almost guaranteed excitement and fun then it’s Mario. We expect Mario Strikers to be a great party game to play with friends. We also expect Nintendo to offer continued updates and add-ons to the game once it has been released.

Online Only Games

Platform: PC

Slingo slot games offer an exciting hybrid of online slots and bingo games. There are already dozens of great Slingo games available to be played on a PC, but we expect more to be released throughout 2022. Popular Slingo slot games are usually themed around ancient myths and even famous movies.

Starship Troopers – Terran Command

One of GameInformers most anticipated strategy games of 2022, Starship Troopers offers a unique online experience where you must work together with your friends to control a squad of troopers in the future. Set to be released in June 22, this is one game to keep an eye out for on the Steam Store.
