Whether you are playing on PC, one of the PlayStation iterations, one of Xbox models, or the Nintendo Switch, there is sure to be a game for you on this list.
While July 2022 was a relatively slow month for gaming, we did get a few good new releases — like Xenoblade Chronicles 3. The good news is that August 2022 is looking a lot better.
In release date order, here are some of the new games to look forward to this month (and their video game release dates):

From horror to survival, to classics, to cosy, August 2022 looks like it’s going to be an awesome, fun-packed month for game releases, and these can be found on a variety of platforms such as Steam, Epic or Nintendo eShop. I’m going to be picking up Camp Canyonwood, Cult of the Lamb and A Little to the Left.
