Summer time is coming to an end and the last month of this hot season is coming. That means it’s time to take a look at multiplayer games coming out in August 2022. Perhaps at least one of the list will interest you.
Kirby’s Dream Buffet
Let’s start with a game that doesn’t have an exact release date yet. Kirby’s Dream Buffet is slated for a Summer 2022 release on the Nitnendo Switch, and since that time of year is only August, it’s a logical conclusion that the game will be available this month. Unless, of course, the developers announce the transfer.
At the moment, there are few details about the new product. According to the description on the Nintendo eShop page, players will have to overcome challenges in a team of four, competing in various mini-games. Judging by the first gameplay video, it will be a party game in the style of Super Mario Party.
Turbo Golf Racing
If you like Rocket League gameplay but prefer golf to soccer, then Turbo Golf Racing is worth a look. The release will take place on August 4 on PC and Xbox Series X|S. The game will be paid, but Game Pass subscribers will be able to play the full version without a purchase.
Turbo Golf Racing is a fast-paced multiplayer sports game reminiscent of Rocket League. Only instead of football here you have to play golf. Driving racing cars, players need to drive a huge ball around the track in order to shoot it into the hole. After the release, the developers promise to release regular free updates with new levels, power cores and cosmetic items.
GigaBash will release on August 5 on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, as well as on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles. The game is a real “Godzilla simulator” in which you play as a giant monster that can destroy high-rise buildings and skyscrapers.
Gigabash takes place many years after the heroes have destroyed all the giant monsters. Suddenly, a mysterious force is awakening them all over the world, and now they come out to wreak havoc. The game has cartoonish graphics and an isometric camera and offers four-player battles. You can play both on the same screen with your friends and over the Internet.
New addition to the Battle Royale collection! On August 11, early access to the game called Rumbleverse starts. The game will be released on PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, PlayStaion 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, and will be distributed free of charge. By the way, the launch of the first season will take place a week later – on August 18.
Rumbleverse is a free-to-play battle royale game that was announced at The Game Awards 2021. The project offers bright cartoonish graphics and a fast-paced melee combat system. The match involves 40 players who find themselves on a large and ever-shrinking map with skyscrapers, and to win you must be the last survivor.
tower of fantasy
We note right away that the global version of Tower of Fantasy does not yet have an exact release date. The developers promise to release the game in the third quarter of 2022. However, the App Store release date is August 11th. However, it should not be ruled out that this is just a stub.
Tower of Fantasy is an anime-themed post-apocalyptic open-world Action RPG. Players can create their own character and unlock new ones using the gacha system, which also comes with unique weapons. Many compare the game to Genshin Impact as it has many of the same mechanics, but has distinct features such as PvP and mounts.
The Saints Row series is back and completely rebooted. A new game in the franchise, which is in no way connected with the previous parts, will be released on August 23, 2022 on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
Saints Row is a complete reboot of the series with new characters and a new universe. The action will unfold the city of Santo Illeso, the aesthetics of which draws inspiration from the American Southwest. The game promises the largest city in the history of the franchise, where there are many gangs that must be destroyed.
Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed
A couple of years ago we received a remake of the first part of Destroy All Humans!, and soon the turn will come to the second. Release Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed will take place on August 30, 2022 on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Yes, you correctly noted that the game will not be released on the last generation of consoles.
Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed is a remake of the second part of Destroy All Humans! 2 on the Unreal Engine 4. The game has better graphics, new features, and a multiplayer mode. The latter is distributed separately as a standalone add-on called Destroy All Humans! — Clone Carnage.
