Plague Tale: Requiem
The sequel to 2019’s A Plague Tale: Innocence is coming sometime in 2022. In the previous game, we followed the orphans Amicia and Hugo as they attempt to escape the flood of devouring rats. Now in A Plague Tale: Requiem we’re reunited with the orphans in brand new regions.
It seems like the rat curse has followed them however as the trailer shows off more sneaking and backstabbing in a plague-ridden world. The gameplay appears to be heavily stealth-based, against a mix of realistic and supernatural enemies.
A Plague Tale: Requiem will come to Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC sometime in 2022, and it will be available on Xbox Game Pass from Day One.
Even more, Minecraft is coming and this time it’s an action strategy game. Minecraft Legends will introduce players to a gentle land, both familiar and mysterious, full of lush biomes and rich resources. But this beautiful land is on the brink of terrible change – the piglin invasion has begun and threatens to corrupt the Overworld. It’s up to the player to make unexpected friends, form valuable alliances and lead the way into strategic battles against the fierce invaders from the Nether.
There hasn’t been anything official announced for Minecraft Legends but based on the trailer it looks like it could be a kind of Dynasty Warriors crossover. With you playing the hero and leading armies into battle.
Minecraft Legends is set to launch sometime in 2023.

The Last Case Of Benedict Fox
The Last Case of Benedict Fox is a hand-crafted Metroidvanian experience by Polish indie game developer Plot Twist. The 2D side-scroller tells the tale of a thrilling mystery stuffed among some pretty challenging combat. But it was really the Lovecraftian cult story that got me.
The year is 1925 and the titular Benedict Fox has a case to uncover the untimely demise of a family. His investigations take place inside a gorgeous yet creepy manor, packed with a whole bunch of occult paraphernalia. Benedict will have to face these demons, along with his own demon companion that resides within his body.
