find out when each game comes out, where to find it, and what events you have to see

0

New year, new games. For any of us, math is that simple. What is not easy, however, is to keep a good account of all releases 2022. It is very easy to lose track of things that interested you or not even find out that they are going to come out. In order to avoid this, in 3DJuegos PC we have made a compilation of premieres this year, both those with a specific date and those without.

You probably keep a good track of when Elden Ring or Starfield go on sale because they are very popular games, but our intention is to update regularly the topic with all the titles that we think may interest you. Requirements to enter the list? Just one: have a planned release on PC. Fortunately, most publishers confirm dates and platforms with considerable margin, although there are also times when we will have to settle for a question mark.

In order to maximize the usefulness of the theme, we have also decided to include in the list all events Highlights of the year 2022 so you don’t miss out on anything at all. From E3 to Gamescom, through the Game Awards and even CES, we want you to be aware of everything that happens in the world of computer video games.

The hardware situation this year

RTX 3090 Ti (Nvidia)

It’s no secret that the PC hardware landscape it’s pretty bad nowadays. Thanks to the now famous semiconductor crisis, the prices of graphics cards, RAM and other components and products they have shot, and it doesn’t look like this situation is going to stop anytime soon (or so the presidents of Nvidia and Intel think).

The semiconductor crisis still conditions the stock

This has not prevented this year’s CES from coming loaded with news. Nvidia seeks to raise the roof of the high-end market and return to get hold of the mid-low range at the same time, while AMD has confidence in its processors (both for desktops and laptops), but its offering in GPUs has disappointed even its biggest fans.

Be that as it may, in a market that has yet to recover and is very inaccessible to most of its enthusiasts, these types of ads always have a bittersweet taste. Yes, Intel has introduced an even more powerful version of its top of the range and Nvidia has promised graphics that will be reasonably priced, but it is difficult to feel that all of that is real if the offer is dominated by speculation.

Steam Deck (Valve)

Apart from the cards, we are also very aware of the premiere of Steam Deck: the hybrid hardware between console and laptop with which Valve will turn everything upside down. The first to pre-order it should start receiving their orders in the coming months, overcoming a slight delay in its initial launch date. Take a look at all the Steam Deck models and specifications if you are not sure what it will offer us.

Annual video game events in 2022

For now, these are the events where we can have news of videogames throughout the year. As always, E3 (which this time will be full digital), Geoff Keighly’s Summer Game Fest, Gamescom, the Tokyo Game Show and The Game Awards stand out. As we confirm dates and specials, you will also be able to see related topics in this same topic. We look forward to adding the 2022 3DGames Awards to the list soon.

  • Taipei Games Show (January 22)
  • Steam Next Fest (21 de febrero)
  • PAX East (April 21)
  • Summer Game Fest (junio)
  • E3 (June)
  • EVO Championship Series (August 5)
  • Gamescom (August 24)
  • Tokyo Game Show (September 15)
  • The Game Awards (diciembre)

PC video game releases in 2022

Although most years do not start until spring, this comes with the batteries charged from the first minute. They are waiting for us such important titles like the Elden Ring itself, or ports Also appetizing from PlayStation games such as God of War (2018) or Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, the latter without an exact date yet the same as occurs with the elusive Death Stranding: Director’s Cut. Also during the first half of the year we will have the expected Lost Ark, as well as Total War: Warhammer 3 and STALKER 2. Of course, the second half of the year is somewhat more diffuse; but we know that the true protagonist will be Starfield from Bethesda. See if you can replicate the success of TES V Skyrim.

January, a month full of ports

God of War on PC looks scandalous, of course as long as we can make it work properly: minimum and recommended technical requirements

The year begins quietly but with some ports really strong. They highlight Monster Hunter Rise, previously exclusive for Nintendo Switch and God of War (2018) for PlayStation, with Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection on the trail at a yet-to-be-specified point in the near future. They all come to blur the line between console titles and the PC market. The RTX 3050 card is also released for those who are determined to get the most out of hardware on a budget. If they find one available, of course.

February, the month of Elden Ring and Lost Ark

Elden Ring (FromSoftware)

For now, February is the most powerful month of the year, and for good reason. The heavy hitters here are Dying Light 2: Stay Human and the highly anticipated Elden Ring. From Software’s new work has the potential to outshine all titles this month, and even the next one. There’s also a good dose of promising indie games or JRPG adaptations on the way, including Sifu, Monark, Martha is Dead or Atelier Sophie 2. No exact date but confirmed for February we have the Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons expansion, too, which fans have been waiting for literally years.
