For now, here are the best new games in August 2022 to look forward to.
Two Point Campus – release date August 9th
Following the success of Two Point Hospital, the good folks at Two Point followed up their 2018 hospital sim with a university-inspired sim!
As you’d expect, players are tasked with creating a university campus and overseeing day-to-day management from expenses to student morale.
We’ve already had the chance to try it out so you can find out why it’s one of the best new games of August 2022.
Cult of the Lamb – release date August 11th
The award for the most creative/scary title of August 2022 probably has to go to Cult of the Lamb, a roguelike about a possessed lamb who has to raise an army.
We’ve found firsthand that the execution of Cult of the Lamb more than lives up to its concept, as the stylish graphics are beautifully complemented by the varied dual-track gameplay, which ranges between an all-action adventure game and a clever strategy game to build a… army flirts .
Madden NFL 23 – Release Date August 19th
It’s that time of year again for American football fans as the NFL franchise prepares for its annual release, this time in NFL Madden 23.
We already know who this year’s cover star is and who the top-rated players in the game are, and we won’t have long to wait to see how this year’s version plays and how it differs from previous years.
Saints Row – Release date August 23rd
Nine years after the last full mainline Saints Row game and a fresh reboot is here to put the iconic franchise back on the map in typically gritty fashion.
While the Saints Rows reboot tries to tone down the silliness that has crept into the game’s later content, make no mistake, this is another bombastic open-world sandbox adventure for you to let off steam in.
Read more about it here in our full preview, where we discuss why it could be one of the best new games of August 2022.
PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC – Release Date August 26th
In a surprise remake that probably not many people saw coming, Nintendo announced that PAC-MAN WORLD would be reborn through a full-fledged remake.
The game’s reveal trailer showed a bright, bouncy Pac-Man bouncing through all of the game’s original levels, and they look shinier and sparklier than ever.
Platformers seem to be very much alive at the moment and PAC-MAN WORLD: Re-PAC seems to be showing a different side of Pac-Man that not many people have seen before.
F1 Manager 22 – Release date August 30th
F1 fans are familiar with the long-running simulcast series that captures the magic of real F1 races that delight viewers week in and week out.
But 2022 has called for the first-ever F1 managerial game and it eschews the physical racing side of F1 and dives squarely into the micromanagement of running a Formula 1 team, as well as the behind-the-scenes details.
Destroy all humans 2! Reprobed – Release date August 30th
Another August 2022 remake is Destroy All Humans 2! verified. Rebuilt from the ground up based on the original game, the hilariously named title shouldn’t feel alien to anyone who has played it before or hasn’t played it yet.
A childhood game for many, Destroy All Humans 2! Reprobed should bring back a lot of nostalgia for most and make the act of body-snapping and firing man-eating spaceworms a pleasure.
These are the biggest and best new games for August 2022. Check out this guide each month to see the latest and greatest games coming in 2022!
