Below are six of the best games we saw at Gamescom 2022, each with the potential to win a good number of prizes. Rather, we only see what the developers want us to see at this point, so it’s very likely that they’re not as polished as they are presented here.
lies of p
In words we never thought we’d write, an upcoming soul-like game based on the Pinocchio story looks like one of the best Gamescom games to be announced. Following a human/cyborg hybrid in our protagonist Pinocchio, the game seems to focus on the quest to find and potentially fight Geppetto. How much more of the famous story the game will adapt at this point is unknown, but it seems top-notch so far.
With echoes of both Bloodborne and Devil Mary Cry, fans of the genre will be in for a treat, with a strong steampunk influence, magic, various weapons, and a plethora of different enemies to battle.
where the winds meet
Another hack and slash game featured at Gamescom 2022, where the winds meet looks like the beloved son of ghosts of tsushima Y Assassin’s Creed. An open-world RPG set towards the end of China’s Ten Kingdoms era, the game promises “freedom and authenticity,” and after watching the trailer below, it’s hard to argue with that promise.

Magic, swords, potions and more await you in what feels like a faithful, yet mythological, version of the period.
dead island 2
Announced in 2014, dead island 2 is a surprising addition to this list, with the general rule that games with such troubled and unstable development end up being poor, especially when eight years have passed.
Established a few months later Dead Island Y Dead Island: Riptide Dead Island 2 It takes place in various locations around California and seems pretty standard as far as first-person zombie games go. The standard swords, pistols, molotovs, and more are included, as are destructible and explosive items in the environment. What stands out are the multiple different ways you can take down zombies, the cast of characters you wouldn’t normally see in a post-apocalyptic world, and the world itself.
We hope the game is as good as the trailer below shows.
high in life
A game straight from the mind of Justin Roiland, creator, writer and broadcaster responsible for rick and morty it will always be full of wacky ideas and concepts. high in life delivers in that regard, with talking guns with their own distinctive personalities, a colorful and vibrant world, and a plethora of foul-mouthed enemies that are sure to make you laugh as you slay them.
A first person shooter with a difference, high in life looks like it will be a guaranteed hit with anyone who likes it rick and mortyand for the wider audience who enjoy their guns gloating as they hit their targets, or beg to be used like in the video below.
The Callisto Protocol
A spiritual successor to Dead space trilogy developed by the same studio, The Callisto Protocol it looks at once terrifying, intriguing and surprising. Judging from the gameplay trailer below, the emphasis on stealth, melee, weapon combat, and use of the environment as a whole will all play into the survival tactics employed by the player. It seems satisfying to emulsify enemies in that giant meat grinder, let alone dismember and paralyze enemies before they can attack.

Yes Dead space is something to go through, the game will be downright terrifying in the moments where the combat isn’t intense and fast-paced, and it will be one to play with the lights on, a blanket around you, and the remote in hand to turn. the television off.
Another open world RPG, abandoned It looks like it will focus more on terrain traversal and fluidity of combat, as much as the blunt side of things. Impressive to watch, the game has been known for a while now, but Gamescom 2022 allowed us a proper look at the gameplay for the first time.
Transported from New York City to a fantastical land called Athia, protagonist Frey will have to quickly learn the ways of her new world, with magic at her command and a huge world to explore. abandoned it looks like it will give the player plenty of time to explore and appreciate the world that has been created.
