Atlas Fallen, where Winds Meet… 10 Amazing Video Games Announced at Gamescom 2022
Gamescom 2022 was this week. As expected, Hogwarts Legacy, Sonic Frontiers or Dead Island 2 were there. But we also have the right to make new and surprising announcements. Here are 10 video games we didn’t see coming and they’re different.
Opening Night Live + Future Game Show
Note that we write these lines before Xbox at Gamescom and the great indies showcase Unable to predict the future, we cannot include new announcements made at this conference in this list. Fortunately, there was already a lot going on with Opening Night Live and the Future Games Show.
Open Night Live
Focus was present during Opening Night Live and presented us with several interesting games. are among them An all-new baby from the creators of The Surge, inspired by titles like Prince of Persia and Monster Hunter. His nickname? Atlas yields. This is an action-RPG where Bali will be your main ally. You can use it as a powerful weapon for your abilities to defeat the monsters that are placed in your path. Once killed, they will reveal their essence, allowing you to customize your playstyle. That’s all we know right now, but the universe and trailer are already inspiring. See by 2023 to discover this game on PC, PS5 and Xbox series.
friend vs friend
We will see the following titles released by Devolver. However, it’s not our favorite punks from the video game world who oversee this crazy title, but Raw Fury. A colorful artistic aspect, an atmosphere Happy tree friendsMultiplayer battles and a shooter/deckbuilding mix (Like the acclaimed Neon White), it’s a recipe for friends vs. friends. The title has it all: the goal will be to battle your friends in wild games. We are promised many weapons (from pistols to nuclear blasts), 10 characters with unique abilities and of course, a good dose of fun. Unfortunately, you’ll have to be patient before you see what the joystick or mouse has to offer. for the moment, No release date or window has been issued and the game has been announced for PC only.
Killer Clones from Outer Space: The Game
I’m talking about a movie that people under 20 (or even 30) don’t know about. This feature film, both hilarious and terrifying, was released in 1988. At the time, he also had the rights to a video game adaptation, as many did. Movies for many Killer Clones from Outer Space Archana is unfortunately, with the passage of time, it slowly begins to fade into oblivion. But that didn’t count for the executive director of the game Friday the 13th: The Video Game who decided to work on a license revival with Killer Clones: The Game from Outer Space. In the program? An asymmetrical multiplayer game (3 clowns against 7 humans), crazy and bloody. Planned for this Launching in 2023 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC.
We knew that the makers of Subnautica were going to present their new game to us, but we didn’t expect what they announced to us. Moonbreaker has nothing to do with the survival and exploration games that made Uncharted World famous. It is a turn-based strategy and simulation game that aims to give players the sensation of a real miniatures game. To realize this little passionate dream, the developers of Unknown World knew how to surround themselves well. Brandon Sanderson, who took over the writing duties wheel of time After the death of its creator Robert Jordan, Moonbreaker’s sci-fi world was set to form. If you are curious, Be aware that early access to the title should begin on September 29 on PC and Mac. And for the most impatient, a test phase is also planned for players.
Under the waves
After Sea of Solitude, Quantic Dream continues with a new aquatic title that will take place on the seabed this time. Titled Under the Waves, this narrative game puts us in the shoes of Stan, a professional diver who faces a tragic loss. A parallel is thus drawn between our hero’s loneliness and illness and the depths of the ocean that surrounds him. Parallel Studios promises us an exciting and poignant adventure where our choices have consequences Note that on the occasion of this partnership, the studio and the French publisher have joined forces with an association working to save the oceans: Surfrider Foundation Europe. As under the waves, It is expected on PS5, Xbox Series, PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2023.
Where the winds meet
If there’s one trailer that’s left viewers in awe, it’s ‘Where the Winds Meet’. This ambitious Chinese action game managed to wow us within minutes. With its environment, its atmosphere and its mechanics, the title inevitably reminds us of Ghost of Tsushima and Sekiro Shadows Di Twice. But that doesn’t mean it’s a pale copy-paste, far from it. First, where Winds Meet chose to set its scene in China during the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms period. As for the mechanics, they will be varied and diverse: frontal combat, stealth, platforming stages, exploration, career choice… We can even run on water. Suffice it to say that the whole thing makes you want to. Unfortunately, the curious will have to wait. We don’t have it at the moment No release date is announced, or even support.
Fallout, Skyrim, Dragon Age Inquisition, The Outer Worlds… what a fine pedigree the developers at Wyrdsong have. This game that still remains highly mysterious is actually the work of ex-Bethesda, overseen by a great man: Jeff Gardiner, former producer of the Fallout series. So there are good people in this project, but who are they? From what little we know at this point, It is a AAA budget open world RPG, These developers know how to do the best. Note that Wyrdsong will take place in a fictional Portugal with a medieval and fantastical air. To set up this universe, Something Wicked games will return to the famous Unreal Engine 5. And for funding, this new studio has approached Chinese giant NetEase. No release date or support yet.
Future game show
god of stone
The Future Game Show was above all an opportunity to highlight the games already presented, but we still had the right to a few surprising announcements, and this is to our greatest delight. Especially in this case God of Rock, a title that offers us a mix between a fighting game and a rhythm game. If this shandy itself is not new, it is still unusual. Especially since the God of Rock gives us a colorful and original artistic direction as a bonus that allows him to stand out from the crowd during this long convention. In the program? Over 40 original tracks, 12 characters to play as, a story mode to watch your favorite climb through the ranks, a training mode, a local and online ranked mode and for the more creative, a music editing tool. God of Rock is slated for this winter on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
The Golden Idol Case
Old-fashioned point’n’clicks are becoming increasingly rare Most nostalgic so often tend to laugh at the appearance of such titles. So when, also, the title in question mixes nostalgia and originality, it’s a winning combo. And that’s good because that’s the case with The Case of the Golden Idol. In all pixels, this title is a true homage to the point’on’click investigation games of the past. Here you are in the 18th century, able to rely only on your sense of observation to reconstruct particularly bloody crime scenes and discover the truth. Requiring old-fashioned gameplay, this game probably won’t appeal to everyone. But it deserves to exist and, we hope, will be the most nostalgic of you. But you have to be patient because No release date has been announced for this PC game.
Pleasure is different, we end up with A psychological thriller that plays with your memory and your perception: gap. In the shoes of neuroscientist Joshua Hayes, reality isn’t always easy to grasp. The man suffers from a genetic disease like his family members. To put an end to this menace, he decides to take part in an experiment run by the biotech giant Neuraxis. But sometimes mind games are dangerous. Stuck in the middle of a parallel reality, Joshua must make his way through his memories to get out of this hell. Alas, it’s hard to make the right choice when you can’t trust anyone, not even yourself. The experience promises to be extraordinary, which makes this announcement interesting. It remains to be seen how it will fare once the game is finished and released. for the moment, There’s no date on the horizon, but we do know that the game will be available on the PC, PS5, and Xbox series.
