With the festive season arriving in 2021, the new year is almost among us. 2021 has been great for gaming in general, with games like Warzone and Halo Infinite really standing out in the FPS genre. 2022 is set to be even more special, especially now that the PS5 and Xbox Series S/X are officially here.
Having said that, players are always looking for the next big game or installment for popular franchises. For those eager to read about some of the most exciting shooters coming in the new year, here are the most anticipated FPS games coming in 2022.
10 FPS games arriving in 2022
For fans of shoot and loot FPS games like Destiny, Wonderlands may be exactly what you’re looking for in 2022. From the creators of the Borderlands series, Gearbox Software, Wonderlands is a spin-off game inspired by a DLC from Borderlands 2 called Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep.
Wonderlands puts a dungeons and dragons spin on the great Borderlands formula. Players will be shooting and looting their way through a medieval fantasy-themed world which just might fulfill your need for a new FPS adventure.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will be arriving on March 25, 2022, for PC, Xbox One & Series S/X, & PlayStation 4 & 5.
2. Modern Warfare II (CoD 2022)
Modern Warfare (2019) was an absolute hit for the Call of Duty franchise. As well as introducing one of the most popular battle royales of all time, Warzone, it also continued a series that many have fond memories with when it comes to Call of Duty games.
Following its success, it seems the CoD release for 2022 will be a follow-up to Modern Warfare (2019), which will most likely bring a classic CoD campaign with a sense of realism, and also a cracking Multiplayer mode similar to what was provided in the first game.
CoD is always up there when it comes to anticipated FPS games, but Modern Warfare II has the potential to really be something special if it continues the success of the first installment. For those who like to sink their teeth into a great story, or just want to shoot other online players, Modern Warfare II is definitely one to look out for and will most likely be released around November 2022.

The game will feature modern weaponry so for those looking for something different to Call of Duty or Battlefield, this could be a great alternative in 2022, as it’s releasing exclusively for Xbox consoles on February 10.

MultiVersus Season 1 update: Release date, Morty, Battle Pass price
MultiVersus Season 1 will bring a ton of new content to the game including Battle Pass rewards and a new Morty character.
MultiVersus has been a massive success since launching its open beta, and fighting game fans now have Season 1 content to look forward to. Here’s everything coming to MultiVersus Season 1 including a new Morty character.
MultiVersus players have been enjoying the game’s open beta, but the platform fighter will soon officially enter its first season. The free-to-play game has been nothing short of a major hit with MultiVersus surpassing 11 million active players.
It’s safe to say that as more fighting game fans get their hands on MultiVersus, it is destined to continue its upward trajectory as Season 1 approaches. While MultiVersus already delivers a varied cast of characters from several notable franchises, more are on the way in Season 1.
Here’s everything you need to know about MultiVersus Season 1 including its release date, Battle Pass details, and new characters.
- MultiVersus Season 1 release date
- MultiVersus new characters & Morty release date
- MultiVersus Season 1 Battle Pass
MultiVersus Season 1 release date
Season 1 of MultiVersus will begin on August 15, 2022. Season 1 was previously set to launch on August 9, but the devs pushed back the date of the update to better prepare for the new content.
Technically Season 1 will be considered the full release of MultiVersus, since players have been enjoying the open beta for about a month.
It’s also important to note that the devs state Season 1 content will be rolled out periodically following the initial release on August 15. In other words not all Season 1 MultiVersus content will arrive on August 15: “new modes and content will be spread through the life of the Season.”
MultiVersus new characters & Morty release date
As the snapshot for Season 1 revealed, Rick and Morty will be making their way to MultiVersus in Season 1. While the image shows both Rick and Morty, the devs only provided information concerning Morty’s arrival.
Morty will officially join the roster of MultiVersus characters on August 23, just over a week after the initial Season 1 update. In addition, a MultiVersus Game Director confirmed that Morty will be characterized as an “expert” level fighter.
A ton of rumors have been swirling when it comes to possible new MultiVersus characters. Leaks have pointed toward the possible arrival of Eleven from Stranger Things, and given her powers in the Netflix series, she would make a great fit for the fighting game.
MultiVersus Season 1 Battle Pass
In addition to a Classic Arcade Mode and a proper Ranked Mode, MultiVersus Season 1 will also provide players with a new Battle Pass.
The Season 1 MultiVersus Battle Pass will have 50 tiers of rewards to unlock, giving players plenty of content to work toward. While this will deliver more rewards than the beta Battle Pass of 15 tiers, it will come at a greater cost.
MultiVersus uses an in-game currency called Gleamium to purchase content like the Season 1 Battle Pass. The Season 1 Battle Pass will cost 950 Gleamium, and players can purchase 1000 Gleamium for $9.99 / £7.99.
Players can also expect some notable balance changes to arrive with the Season 1 update, and we’ll be sure to detail those for you when it releases on August 15.

Hogwarts Legacy release date
Hogwarts Legacy’s release date is officially confirmed as February 10, 2023, for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC players. The game was previously slated for a Holiday 2022 release, but the devs explained that they needed a little bit more time to polish their product.
Potterheads won’t have to wait too long for the release of Hogwarts Legacy, but it is important to note that the game will be available on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC as of February 10, 2023, but not the Nintendo Switch.
The release date for the Nintendo Switch version of Hogwarts Legacy has yet to be revealed. Considering that the devs claimed it would be revealed soon, it will likely be some time after February 10.
Hogwarts Legacy gameplay details
Prior to the massive gameplay reveal trailer, developers Avalanche Software teased that the game would take place in the 1800s. According to the devs this was a conscious decision to prevent your wizarding story to be overshadowed by a certain modern-day wizarding hero.
As the protagonist, your character will be tasked with investigating a gobline-led rebellion. The goblins have allied with dark wizards and you’ll have to take on some dangerous foes along the way. Hogwarts Legacy will allow you to explore Hogwarts’ massive grounds as well as many surrounding areas.
Wizard character customization
Players will have the opportunity to fully customize their character for this grand adventure. Once you’ve created your character, you’ll arrive at Hogwarts as a new student. Naturally, this means the Sorting Hat will place you in one of the four Hogwarts houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin.
Life as a Hogwarts student
Once you’ve been placed in a Hogwarts house, you’ll have access to your dorms and begin to attend classes. From Potions to Defense Against the Dark Arts you’ll attempt to hone your wizarding skills all while making new friends along the way.
As a student, you’ll be able to create bonds with classmates that could prove valuable in learning new skills later in the game.
Hogwarts Legacy RPG elements
As you attempt to tackle the dark secrets that await you outside of the castle, you’ll certainly grow as a wizard. You’ll be able to upgrade your talents and abilities with the experience points you’ve earned from completing challenges.
Players will also be able to upgrade their catalog of spells making them more effective and powerful as they progress through the game.
In Hogwarts Legacy, combat between wizards will include the use of offensive and defensive spells but that’s not all. Players can also brew powerful potions to give them an advantage when facing enemies.
Is Hogwarts Legacy on Xbox Game Pass?
At this moment, there is no indication that Hogwarts Legacy will appear on Xbox Game Pass. The game will be available to purchase on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.
There are sure to be graphical differences in the game between console generations. Xbox Game Pass members would love to see Hogwarts Legacy available on the service and the devs will likely address its availability as we get closer to the February 2023 release.
Hogwarts Legacy reveal trailer
Avalanche Software treated players to a gameplay trailer on March 17. The nearly 15-minute trailer showcased the most in-depth look at Hogwarts Legacy yet. The trailer unveils several key aspects of the game as it details the plot, combat elements, RPG elements, and of course a massive overview of the world you’ll be able to explore.

FIFA 23 players can’t play beta after crashing & connection errors: How to fix
While FIFA 23 players were excited to play the beta, crashing and connection errors are ruining the fun. Here’s how to fix the errors on PS5.
Several players are reporting that they cannot access the FIFA 23 beta due to crashing and connection errors. If you’re hoping to get a first look at the new game, here’s how to fix FIFA 23’s beta bugs.
FIFA 23’s close beta went live on August 11 and countless players rushed to their platforms to get a first look at EA Sports’ new iteration of the franchise. Unfortunately, a considerable amount of players were met with FIFA 23 beta bugs that prevented them from accessing the game.
This is far from an ideal situation as the beta is only available until September 1. It seems the luck of players who were fortunate enough to receive a code for the closed beta is beginning to change.
However, there’s no real reason to worry as we’ll provide a fix for the FIFA 23 beta errors to get you back into matches.
It turns out there are a few separate FIFA 23 beta errors that are ruining the fun at the moment. One of the errors leads to the game crashing after players attempt to open the FIFA 23 application. This one is particularly frustrating as players can’t even get to the main menu to access any of the modes on offer.
Meanwhile, other players can access the menu but cannot play any modes, including the Kick-Off mode that should be available to everyone. With the player unable to select a mode, the FIFA 23 beta becomes utterly useless.
How to fix FIFA 23 beta errors on PS5
To fix the connection and crashing errors for FIFA 23’s beta you have to delete friends on your PlayStation account until you have less than 100. The issues were primarily impacting players on PS5.
This should work for PS5 players, while others are reporting that completing training matches eventually unlocks other modes. It seems there are more than a few bugs that players have to deal with. For the time being the method above is your best bet until the devs address these issues.
EA have yet to comment, but with the FIFA 23 beta available until September 1, there’s no doubt that they will work on delivering a fix for players soon.
