Most anticipated Playstation games in January 2022

The Review Geek’s new game series continues from where it left off. Our topic today falls to upcoming Playstation games due to be released in January 2022. We started this list with the most anticipated PC games yesterday. In the following days, we will continue with Xbox and Nintendo games too, so do be sure to check those out.

2021 proved to be pretty fruitful for PlayStation owners. Noteworthy entries like Little Nightmares II, Resident Evil Village and Returnal used the power of the console nicely, as did It Takes Two (which also scooped Best Game at the Games Awards!)

January 2022 looks set to be an ambitious start to the year for console owners. 

Without further ado, let’s start talking about the best games coming to PS5 and PS4 this month.

Deep Rock Galactic – January 4

Deep Rock Galactic, which has been very successful on PC for a while, finally greets PlayStation users. The game allows you to play as strong and fearless dwarves with your friends; it’s a heck of a lot of fun. Deep Rock Galactic will make its PS5 and PS4 debut via PS Plus. So if you are a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you can play the game for free.

Note that you can play Deep Rock Galactic in co-op mode with up to four players in total.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction – January 20

The new Rainbow Six, which is also on the list of the most anticipated PC games in January 2022, will simultaneously be released for PlayStation. Extraction will offer a different experience than the main game. Unlike Rainbow Six Siege, this time you’ll be playing as one of the operators in teams of three. While the genre of the game is again Tactical FPS, this time what we’re fighting is an evolving alien threat.

The game will be released on almost all platforms at the same time. Considering that the developer team is Ubisoft Montreal, it is possible to say that a very entertaining and tactical experience awaits us.

Release Date: January 20, 2022
Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Download: Buy on PlayStation Store
Platforms: PC, Playstation 5, Playstation 4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, Stadia

Windjammers 2 – January 20

Windjammers 2 is a sequel to the classic Windjammers, which finally arrives after 28 years. After the first game was released on classic consoles such as Nintendo Wii and Playstation Vita over the years, we needed a sequel that was developed by staying true to the original.

The gameplay mechanics of Windjammers 2 will be almost as we remember them. It will continue its life as a sports game where players try to score goals with a frisbee and do so from the overhead camera. There will also be a total of 11 playable characters too.

Release Date: January 20, 2022
Developer: DotEmu
Download: Buy on PlayStation Store
Platforms: PC, Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Xbox One

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection – January 28

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves contains two of Playstation’s most important exclusive games, Uncharted 4 and Uncharted: Lost Legacy. If you already own these titles, you can actually upgrade for an additional $10.

The Uncharted movie starring Nathan Drake, played by Tom Holland, your neighborhood’s friendly Spider-Man, will hit theaters in February 2022. As such, there can be no better timing to play these games. Alongside Playstation 5, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will be released for PC as well.

Release Date: January 28, 2022
Developer: Naughty Dog
Download: Buy on Playstation Store
Platforms: PC, Playstation
