If you’re not too fussed about EA’s upcoming mobile game, players keen to enter the realm of Tolkein once again should mark this on their calendar.

9. Pokémon Scarlet / Violet

Kicking off Gen 9 of Pokémon games for the Nintendo Switch, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will bring back the classic method of dueling made famous in Gold, Silver and Blue. Both games will take place in a completely new region, as expected with each release.

If you were put off by Pokémon Arceus and its drastic changes to the franchise’s gameplay, then worry not, because Scarlet/Violet are the games for you.

Release Date: November 18, 2022.

You can pre-order Pokemon Scarlett and Violent from £43.95 on the GameByte Shop.

8. Forspoken

Luminous Production’s Forspoken aims to take full advantage of the PlayStation 5’s hardware. This enormous open-world game is rooted in smooth traversal and freedom, as players explore the mythical world of Athia.

Hordes of enemies will appear in the world at any time, resulting in boss battles that will test the player to their limits. Forspoken has been delayed several times but we’re sure it’ll be worth the wait.

Release Date: October 11, 2022.

You can pre-order Forspoken from £48.95 on the GameByte Shop.

7. Rollerdrome

The latest State of Play showcase had plenty of games to be excited about but Rollerdrome really took us by surprise. Adorned with an art style similar to Sable and gameplay that would make Max Payne proud, this zany shooter looks like a blast.

Rollerdrome comes from Roll7, which is responsible for bringing us the brilliant OlliOlli franchise.

Release Date: August 16, 2022.

The Saints Row franchise disappeared for a while but now it’s returning with a fresh coat of paint. Intended to reboot the franchise back to its gang warfare roots, developer Volition has moved the action to Las Vegas-style locale known as Santo Ileso.

You’ll be getting up to all of the same chaos, be it single-player or co-op, as you wage a war for dominance of the city.

You can pre-order Saints Row from £42.95 on the GameByte Shop.
