The new year has arrived, and it brings us a really impressive number of great titles. We won’t have a vacation even at the very beginning of the year, as some of those titles arrive as early as January. For a solid start in 2022, several console hits coming to the PC will take care of that, as well as some completely new titles. Just for you, we have singled out the most interesting games that we will play over the next 20 and a fraction of a day.

Unfortunately, there is still no information on whether we will have integrated cross-play and cross-progression options at launch.

Owners of PlayStation 5 consoles can expect a sea of graphics upgrades, and confirmed Fidelity mode with 4K resolution, Performance mode, which “spins” 60 frames per second and Performace + mode, which brings 120 frames per second with 1080p resolution.
