Set long before any of the series entries to date, you’ll be exploring Sinnoh in a unique adventure to create the region’s first Pokedex. Catching Pokemon will be as simple as throwing a Pokeball at them whilst creeping towards them out in the open, which will seamlessly enter you into a battle. It’s the Pokemon game we’ve all been dreaming of.

Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: February 4, 2022

No calendar is complete without a zombie game or two on the horizon, and Dying Light dua has a good chance of being the only zombie game you’ll need for the foreseeable future. Techland got off to fantastic start with the original Dying Light in 2015, and its sequel intends to healthily expand those parameters in every regard. With its reactive world, branching narrative, finessed combat, and radically upgraded visuals, Dying Light dua is everything you could hope for in one, beautifully apocalyptic package, and then some. Our barbed wire baseball bats are already prepared and eager for zombie blood.Sifu
