Upcoming HOT game releases for July and August 2022
4 July 2022 / Esports, News / Michael
As lots of seasoned gamers may know, summer is rarely associated with exciting new game releases and more with title announcements for the end of the year and beyond during the events such as Summer Game Fest, Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase or Nintendo Direct Mini. However, one can still be surprised that even during this hot season (in terms of temperatures at least…), several interesting hot video game releases of more and less well-known titles can be spotted in the wild.
Let’s gather the most interesting releases of July and August in one place:
July 1 – F1 22
F1 22 is a must-have for sports and racing game enthusiasts. After the acquisition of Codemasters with EA Games, this instalment of the official game of the FIA Formula One World Championship will be released as part of the famous EA Sports family of sports video games. New interesting features of F1 22 include in-depth customization and management of your F1 team, sprint races, collecting and racing with supercars in special challenges and a fully integrated VR mode allowing for racing from the cockpit of the F1 racing car.

August 23 – Saints Row
After the over-the-top “Superhero US President saving the earth from aliens in a Matrix-style simulation” Saints Row IV’s story, the developer Volition went back to the drawing board and created the complete reboot of the series called… Saints Row. Fret not, this new direction for the series does not stay away from the grotesque and hilarious open-world style of the first four instalments, although this time the “craziness” factor has been dialled back to the levels of Saints Row 2 and Saints Row The Third. So instead of superheroes, we have young gangsters, lots of guns, vehicles of any kind and funky gadgets to kick other gangs out of the city of Santo Ileso. The customization, which has been a hallmark of the series, is also back with full force, allowing for in-depth customization of your main character, vehicles, and weapons.

August 30 – Destroy All Humans 2: Reprobed
The bane of humanity’s existence, the evil alien Crypto goes on a destructive holiday across the Earth. The follow-up to Destroy All Humans! Remake developed by Black Forest Games setting takes our anti-hero to the 1960s – meaning a ton of references to the cold war, hippies and “illegal substances” use. The sequel continues with the over-the-top bombastic gameplay of the first game and features much bigger open-world levels, new weapons and abilities and even a two-player split-screen co-op mode. In short, this title provides a similar gameplay experience to Destroy All Humans!, but turned up to 11!

And that wraps it up for July and August 2022. Although summer is not the peak gaming season, one can still find many interesting titles which could have been obscured by big gaming releases in the following months such as Call of Duty Modern Warfare II or Starfield. We hope that these summer game releases will make the time spent in high temperatures much more pleasant.
