What games will we be able to play in August 2022 on PlayStation, Xbox, PC and Switch? This month's releases undoubtedly feature the intriguing reboot of Saints Row, which reinvents the lore of the famous action series by putting us in the shoes of a low-ranking criminal determined to make a name for herself on the streets of Santo Ileso. >
However, the debut of Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered on PC is particularly important, another PlayStation exclusive that opens its doors to the Windows platform and does so by trying to push to the maximum on a technical level, thanks to support for ray tracing , with superior quality effects and a couple of exclusive features that could make a difference compared to what we saw on PS5.

There are also potential surprises: from the fascinating Hard West 2 to the cute Two Point Campus, from the 'original Cult of the Lamb to the bullet-based stunts of Rollerdrome, passing through the mech battles of SD Gundam Battle Alliance, a couple of remakes, a collection of classics and two adventures that definitely promise b ene: Soul Hackers 2 and IMMORTALITY.

Hard West 2

Hard West 2, a turn-based combat sequence Released on PC August 4th

Set in one A different western scenario, full of disturbing supernatural elements, Hard West 2 tells the story of Gin Carter and his companions, determined to strike the coup of their life only to realize that the train they wanted to attack is actually controlled by a demon. Maybe that's why everyone called it "ghost train"?

The gang is thus struck by a terrible curse, but if there is a way to go back these skilled gunslingers and fighters will find it, as part of a strategic campaign of great depth and complexity, in which they will have to face increasingly dangerous situations making the most of their skills and available equipment.

Two Point Campus

After the success of the excellent Two Point Hospital, the Two Point Studios development team has seen fit to give life to a real franchise that could explore different themes and situations. And so, after the hospital rooms, it's a surprise to the universities of Two Point Campus: a very different scenario than what fans expected, but equally full of a potential that has so far remained unexpressed.

This time we will in fact have to deal with managing and developing a university campus, going not only to customize the aesthetics and functional aspects of the various structures, but also and above all to distribute in the best possible way the budget available for the various courses, inevitably weird and peculiar. While waiting for the review, take a look at our trial of Two Point Campus.

Cult of the Lamb

Cult of the Lamb, an official artwork Coming out on PC, PS5, PS4 , XSX, XOne and NSW on August 11th

Able to arouse genuine curiosity from the moment of the announcement, Cult of the Lamb puts us in command of a little lamb that was about to be sacrificed in order to foil a disastrous prophecy, but that at the last moment he is possessed by an evil demon and therefore manages to save himself. Not only that: his new condition requires him to create a real cult that converts and determines the extinction of all other religions.

How? The gameplay of the title developed by Massive Monster is divided into two parts: the first is distinctly action, made up of fights that are somewhat reminiscent of Hades and in which we will have to face increasingly stronger enemies while unlocking new devastating powers and abilities; the second of a managerial type, which will see us assigning tasks to the followers and gradually increasing our following. More details in our tried-and-true Cult of the Lamb.

Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered

The new version goes even further, inserting higher quality presets than PS5 in terms of graphics adjustments, supporting NVIDIA DLSS technology for performance improvement and widescreen where present. The game is also fully compatible with the DualSense controller and its peculiarities, which we can therefore also exploit on the Windows platform.

All aspects that point to a visually extraordinary experience, but let's not forget the substance. As we wrote in the review of Marvel's Spider-Man, in fact, we are faced with a passionate and spectacular transposition, which brings to the screen a convincing Spider-Man and a story in which many different situations and traditional villains find their place.


Rollerdrome, an acrobatic firefight Released on PC, PS5 and PS4 on August 16

Rollerdrome is the new title of Roll7, the authors of OlliOlli and Not a Hero, and not surprisingly, it mixes mechanisms and solutions successfully used by the English team over the years to create a decidedly different arcade shooter experience, a sort of single player based Laser League with cel shaded graphics and a a disproportionate amount of aerial acrobatics.

With an almost 70s cartoon aesthetic, the game catapults us into arenas that we will have to clean up of the opponents as we push at great speed from a ramp to the the other, armed to the teeth and endowed with the ability to slow down time to create sensational bullet times in which we kill our enemies in style: we talked about this and more in the Rollerdrome trial.

If the incipit inspires you with a more raw and realistic approach, you are wrong: right from the start the new Saints Row turns out to be caciarone and rowdy, as we go from one chase to another, from one fight to another and blow up an entire neighborhood to complete yet another assignment on the road to glory.
