The E3 gaming show has been canceled again, so publishers use “replacement” for game announcements and demonstrations – the online Summer Game Fest, which first took place in 2020. This year, it mostly showed already announced games, but there were also new ones.
Aliens: Dark Descent
The new game in the Aliens franchise, announced at the Summer Game Fest 2022, is a team action game in which the colonial infantry again opposes the invasion of the Aliens. Almost nothing is known about the game, and the trailer only at the end shows a few seconds of what seems like real gameplay. The release of Aliens: Dark Descent is scheduled for 2023, the game will be released on all major platforms.
The Callisto Protocol
We have already seen The Callisto Protocol at the presentation Sony State of Play a few days ago, but at Summer Game Fest we were shown real gameplay, not a directed version. And now the game is even more like the new Dead Space, which can only make us happy. We remind recalled that The Callisto Protocol will be released on December 2 this year on all major platforms, including previous generation consoles.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II
Of course, how can we do without the new Call of Duty. Recently released “gameplay trailer” actually had almost no real gameplay, so the demonstration at the Summer Game Fest can be considered the first show of real gameplay – in the presented 8-minute trailer we see how the developer goes through one level of the game.
Street Fighter 6
Another game that has already been shown on the State of Play. This time in the trailer we were shown one of the permanent heroes of the series – Guile, and the gameplay with him.
The revival of the classic platformer of 1992, which had a significant impact on the formation and development of the whole genre (and even entered the Guinness Book of Records as the largest circulation French game in history). The sequel is being developed by the French company Microids and will be released in the winter of 2022 on all major platforms.
Former Blizzard employees founded a new company – Frost Giant Studios, and last spring announced the start of the development of a new RTS. Given that it included developers working on the strategies of StarCraft and Warcraft, we can hope for a real revival of the genre of classic RTS. At the Summer Game Fest 2022, the name of the new project – Stormgate – became known, and the first trailer was also released. Unfortunately, we are not shown what real Stormgate gameplay looks like. The release date and platform are unknown, the developer promises a beta next year.
Fort Solis gives the impression of a mixture of the film Moon and the aforementioned Dead Space. There is no release date yet, but the game already has a Steam page.
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide
Cooperative shooter in the universe of Warhammer 40,000 received a release date yet in April, during the Summer Game Fest 2022, the developer released a new trailer, and this time we finally showed the gameplay. As expected, Darktide is very similar to previous action games from this developer, Vermintide, but with weapons from the 40K era.
Another Dead Space, this time with robots? Why not! Unfortunately, there are some doubts about this project. The fact is that Routine was first announced … back in 2012, after which it was constantly carried on and on. The game has now received a new trailer and a list of platforms on which it should appear – PC, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One, but there is still no release date, even an approximate one.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns
A new game from Firaxis Games was announced at last year’s Gamescom. Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a tactical role-playing game from the developers of XCOM and Civilization, which takes place “on the dark side of the Marvel universe.” At Summer Game Fest 2022, the game received a release date – October 7, and a new trailer.
The Last of Us Part I Remake
In fact, the news that Naughty Dog is about to release a випустити remake of The Last of Us Part I on PS5 on September 2 (with subsequent release on PC), “leaked” before the event. But during the Summer Game Fest 2022, it also became known that the company is working on a new multiplayer game, which began as a network mode of The Last of Us Part II, but later became an independent project. The new game is still in the early stages of development, so so far Naughty Dog has released only concept art (from which you can guess that the action will take place in post-apocalyptic San Francisco) and promised more information … next year.
Layers of Fears
One of the few announcements of new games at Summer Game Fest 2022 is a sequel to the famous series of horrors Bloober Team. There is almost no information about the game yet, we only know that Layers of Fears should be released early next year on PC (Steam and Epic Games Store ), PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
Fantasy action game with elements of survival is being developed by Inflexion Games studio, which was founded by former BioWare employees. So far, the release is known only on the PC – the game already has pages on Steam and Epic Games Store, release scheduled for 4 quarter of this year.
The role-playing game Gotham Knights were announced in 2020, and the release was planned for 2021. But it did not happen as expected, so now the game is expected on October 25, 2022 – and it can even be pre-ordered Steam. The events will take place in the open world of Gotham City, the developer promises four game characters, one of which, Nightwing, is shown to us in a new trailer.
