If you’re looking for a reason to keep struggling through this hellscape of an existence, look no further than Gamescom 2022. We’re living in a golden age of video games and the hope that you'll one day get to play the awesome games previewed over the multi-day gaming festival, is reason enough to get out of bed and greet another day. We’ve rounded up the most exciting games they covered during the announcement bonanza. 

Lies of P

 

Neowiz

Creepy puppets.

This Soulslike game is inspired by the original story of Pinocchio, which is pretty grim. Lies of P is set in chaos riddled, belle epoch flavored, dark fantasy world. Plus the protagonist looks like Timothee Chalamet. Coming in 2023.

Where Winds Meet

 

Everstone

Just take my money already, this game looks gorgeous.

Ghost of Tsushima is the most beautiful open world game of all time, and Where Winds Meet is harnessing that vibe and setting it in 10th century China. Open world RPG fans were eating good at this year’s Gamescom, but this one really grabbed our attention.

Dune: Awakening

 

Dune rules and we can’t get enough. Luckily Funcom is bringing us a survival MMO set on the brutal, spicy world of Arrakis. Sign up for the beta if you want to be among the first to try out what will hopefully be a fantastic take on the genre.

The Expanse: A Telltale Series

 

Telltale Games is giving us another stellar offering with The Expanse. This story driven game puts you in the grav boots of Camina Drummer and the choices you make affect the story in big ways. Telltale games are dark, well written, and hard to put down. We can’t wait to play next summer when the game releases.
