What are the biggest games coming in August 2022? Deep Silver is set to release the reboot of its revered Saints Row franchise on PC and consoles. Plus, Spider-Man fans will finally be able to play as a web-slinger on PC, with the upcoming release of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered. F1 Manager 2022 and Madden NFL 23 will cover sports fans. Also, after the success of Two Point Hospital, the developer offers another city builder – Two Point Campus.

However, August also seems to be action month with a plethora of such tiles lining up. Thymesia will take you on an action-adventure journey inspired by the high-difficulty combat of Dark Souls games. There are other exciting titles too, in roguelike dungeon crawler Cult of The Lamb, top-down beat ’em up Midnight Fight Express, and third-person shooter Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reproved.

Two-point campus

When: August 9
Where: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Nintendo Switch

Developer Two Point Studios is ready to bring gamers back to college with their new game, Two Point Campus, but not as college students. Like the developer’s previous game, Two Point Hospital, this game is also set in Two Point County. Here, players will be able to manage a college campus, host graduation ceremonies, and more.

Players will be able to customize and build their own campuses, teaching classes not offered at a regular university, such as a class for knights armed with swords. From building training areas, watchtowers, and landscapes, players will also need to employ staff and teachers for the university.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered

When: August 12
Where: PC

After selling over 33 million copies worldwide, Marvel’s Spider-Man comes to PC with Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered. The popular game of 2018 is known for its gameplay mechanics, especially web traversal and variety of gimmicks. The port is being developed by Nixxes Software and Insomniac Games, and will include the full main story plus three additional story chapters in Marvel’s Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps DLC.

The game centers around a seasoned Peter Parker and tells the story of Spider-Man from the comics as he takes on some of the franchise’s most iconic villains, including Mister Negative. You can freely move – or swing – around New York and talk to the characters you meet along the way, while taking part in side missions.

Sony has already confirmed that the port will feature additional PC-specific standard features, such as adjustable render settings and ray-traced reflections when released in August.

Where: PC, PS5, Xbox Series S/X

Set in the decaying kingdom of Hermes, Thymesia will see players don the mask of an amnesiac wanderer, Corvus, as they fight their way through plague beasts that prowl the city. The action-adventure RPG draws heavily from Dark Souls games, offering high-difficulty, high-risk combat designed to test your patience and skill.

Corvus can transform into a raven, giving him the power to throw feathers like daggers or perform executions with the swiftness of a raptor. Defeating fearsome bosses grants you plague weapons, which can then be upgraded with perks to suit your playstyle. A journey into the darkness reveals untold memories, which Corvus must piece together in an attempt to reverse the calamity.

Madden NFL 23

When: August 19
Where: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X

Become the face of the franchise in Madden NFL 23. This latest entry in EA Sports’ long-running Madden series of American football games gives you different ways to control the action on or off the field. Introducing the all new FieldSENSE game system – the game will give you precise control at every position on the field for consistent ultra-realistic gameplay.

When entering the field in The League mode, you will have the option to select the skill position of your choice – Quarterback, Wide Receiver, Running Back, Corner Back or Middle Linebacker. You’re in your fifth season with a new team under a one-year contract to prove your worth. You can also step away from the limelight in Franchise mode, where you can strategize and plan like the head coach.

Saints Row

When: August 23
Where: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Stadia

A reboot of the popular Saints Row series, this action-adventure title was originally slated for February but was later delayed. The game takes place in Santo Ileso (not a real city, but bears a striking resemblance to Las Vegas) which is controlled by the Idols, Los Panteros and Marshall Defense Industries. You’ll step into the shoes of a character called The Boss – you can also completely customize your character’s appearance – and build your gang, while working to dismantle the others and take over the city.

Much like previous games in the franchise, Saints Row will take you through the city, which is divided into nine districts. As you take control of more regions on the map, you can start new businesses that seem pretty innocuous, if you’re not very careful.

These can help your gang earn enough funds for your mission to wrest power from other gangs and take over Santo Ileso. You can also team up with a friend and help each other complete missions together, which might come in handy – maybe you won’t need those cheat codes this time around.

Pac-Man World Re-Pac
