The month of November is the most important part of the year for the games and gamers. November is the month when all types of Triple-A, as well as indie games, launch to the public. And it is so stacked that players do not know what to play and what to wait for. 2021’s November was also like this, where we saw huge stacks of games releasing left and right, like Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite Multiplayer, Battlefield 2042, Call of Duty Vanguard, Death’s Door, etc. But for 2022, that stacked month full of the best games is February. Looking more closely, February is much more stacked than we have seen in any November.
In February 2022, so many games are releasing that many other indie and Triple-A games moved the release date to a later part of 2022. In this blog, we will list the best games coming in February 2022, along with their features on why they are the best among the many games coming in the same month. Some honorable mentions of games that did not make it into the list are: Life is Strange Remastered Collection, Crossfire X, Grid Legends, Lost Ark, The King of Fighter 15, and Dynasty Warrior 9 Empire.

Elden Ring is the newest game in the Souls-Borne genre from the famous developers From Software. Players can again enjoy engaging themselves in a game that will frustrate them to their bone. Elden Ring will release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
Elden Ring’s writers are Hidetaka Miyazaki and George RR Martin, the author of the famous epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire. The first announcement of Elden Ring was back in 2019 during the E3 2019, and nothing else dropped after that until the first gameplay trailer came in Summer Game Fest in June 2021. The game is set in a fictional realm called the Realm of the Lands Between. The players have to defeat all the offspring of Queen Marika the Eternal, who possess a shard of Elden Ring, which grants them the power but corrupts and taints them. After defeating and collecting all the shards from the offspring, the players will restore the Elden Ring and become the Elden Lord.
Elden Ring, unlike the Souls series, will have an open-world environment. The game combat will be the same as the previous Souls series, like calculated attacks, parry, etc. According to Miyazaki, the game will have rich character customization and will heavily focus on the exploration of the skills instead of the skill tree. Many new features will come in the Elden Ring, like Summoning, where the players can summon spirits along with previously defeated foes as their allies. Elden Ring will easily be one one of the best games to come out in February 2022.
Elden ring is up for pre-order and is available in five different editions.
- Standard Edition
- Deluxe Edition
- Premium Collector’s Edition
- Collector’s Edition
- Launch Edition
Elden Ring will release on 25 February 2022 worldwide.
