This is one of PS5 best games to kickstart 2022. If you did not have the chance to play Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End or Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, this is your chance!

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves brings these titles to PS5 with a graphical upgrade and additional FPS options. The game offers several graphic modes ranging from 4K resolutions at 30 FPS or 120 FPS at 1080p resolutions.

14. Dying Light 2 Stay Human

Finally, Dying Light 2 Stay Human is going to, well, see the light of day! This zombie survival action-adventure game is, if not the biggest, one of the biggest and most ambitious projects Techland has ever created.

This title sees a new protagonist, Aiden Caldwell, and his journey to survive in an open world ridden with zombies. Aiden’s parkour is a focus in regards to gameplay mechanics.

Most of the combat here is melee-based, and weapons often break, so choose wisely when to attack and when to run!

13. Horizon Forbidden West

Horizon Forbidden West is easily one of PS5’s most anticipated games in 2022. The game continues the story of Aloy after the events that take place in Horizon Zero Dawn.

12. Elden Ring

This game did not win the most anticipated game at the Game Awards two consecutive years by accident. Elden Ring is incredibly hyped, and for good reasons.

This title results from the cooperation between Dark Soul’s Hidetaka Miyazaki and Game of Throne’s George R. R. Martin.
