Top Games Ranking - Top 8 New Survival Games Of 2022/23
This game has been in development for over five years, and this one looks insane, but barely anyone's heard of it. Here are the eight best upcoming survival games of 2022.
Retreat to enen
Number eight retreat to Enun, developed by heading west and set in the year 3600, Ce This game has tons of potential. Humanity narrowly avoided extinction after choosing life and peace over wars and fighting. Your goal is to learn how to properly live in harmony with nature, which is actually a really cool idea.
Enon is actually the island you spawn on, and there are tons of secrets for you to supposedly discover. The game will feature base building, crafting, scavenging, and, according to them, a relaxing experience. The map includes several biomes and breathtaking, unquote underwater environments. There's also an arctic area, a jungle area, and a super advanced weather system now.
In all honesty, this sounds like my perfect game, but there's a reason it's at number eight. Something about the graphics just doesn't quite sit right with me. It looks great, but a part of it just feels off for whatever reason. I do think this game can turn into something truly special though, and there's also meditation in this game, so when they said it off as a relaxing experience, they really weren't joking.
It's set for release in the third quarter of 2022. So that should just be around the corner, and it's definitely going to be on my wish list.
Farmzone september 2022
Number seven, farm zone, is a completely different style of survival game to the regular, which is why I wanted to include it. It's developed by Exwol and at first it looks like a really cute and peaceful survival game, but there are actually zombies for you to battle. Your main goal is to thrive as a farmer, all while trying to fight off zombies to protect your land.
There are nearby towns you can use to sell your produce, buy tractors, and help build new defense systems. They do have a pretty comedic section on their steam page, though, that clearly states it includes no horses, no cinematic story, and no huge explosions. Not even small ones, actually, and no pineapple pizza, which is why it's taken seventh place.
Among the trolls
Number , Six among the trolls, developed by forbidden studios, awesome name. By the way, this game looks so cool because it depicts reality. In the Finnish forest in Finland, you'll be embarking on a mysterious quest to find your vanished grandparents while learning how to survive in the wilderness.
Among the trolls is packed with Finnish law and impressive looking graphics, so it'll definitely be an immersive adventure initially. They're saying it'll be released into early access and stay that way for over 20 months until they eventually look to release version 1.0, which will include four different chapters in the storyline and many more features.
Currently, the game already includes eight different areas to explore, loads of different items and building blocks, but according to Forbidden Studios, this is only 30 of what they hope to have in the game in version 1.0. That's a pretty impressive promise. In between the trolls, there are two characters you can play as to complete your journey.
One is Alex, and the other is Anna, both of whom have obviously traveled from the US to visit their grandparents, So blah and it's your goal to essentially live out their lives. A lot of seemingly realistic lore with a hint of magic too. Literally, there are magical attributes that you can collect and use, so I'm looking forward to seeing how this one plays out.
Number five : Power World. I'm sure you've heard of this one, so before we get into some more underrated ones, I just had to include it. It's developed by Pocket Pair and is set for release sometime this year. It's an open-world survival crafting game where you can befriend and collect mysterious creatures called "pals." You can make your pals fight, build farms, and even work in factories for you.
Now, has anyone told Peter about this game yet? That sounds pretty. But never mind, my favorite pal is definitely this blue-looking fella. I mean, it's literally just an angry looking duck. What's not to love? This really sounds like a fantasy game, and oftentimes, those can be a bit too easy to survive in as they often focus on other elements, but apparently, pow world isn't like that.
You can actually die of starvation. There is also harsh weather to combat and so-called illegal poachers. And yes, if you've got no food, you can actually eat your pal. As for building, you can create almost anything. Put your pals to work and you can make pyramids, spaceships, modern mansions, and almost anything else you could probably think of.
You can even create your own farm, of course, run by your pals. And as I mentioned earlier, factories are also in this game. I mean, it's great we're giving these pals jobs, but is this guy really happy with his life? Power World is also multiplayer and includes tons of exploration, all of which can be done while riding a power, by the way, and I'm sure much more for us to discover.
Anyway, I think I've said the word powell enough for the next year, so can we just move on please?
Sons of the forest
Number four Sons of the Forest, developed by End Night Games and set to release in October of this year, promises a seriously terrifying open-world survival horror experience. I know this one's popular given it's connected directly to the forest, but I hadn't heard of it until I actually did the research for this list.
I know I'm uncultured. But I'm learning, guys. In this game, you're sent to a remote island in order to find a missing billionaire, and the hellscape you land in is infested with cannibals, and it's your job to survive by doing anything possible: crafting, building, alone or with friends. It sounds like a terrifyingly immersive game because of those graphics.
They look insane, like the forest but ten times better, and I do think the forest is a beautiful game. By the way, another feature that is probably my favorite in any game is the changing of seasons. In spring and summer you can fish out salmon from the streams, and then for winter you should be saving up meat, as in the cold the food is apparently quite scarce and you also won't be the only one looking for a meal.
Those cannibals are demons, by the way, and they have pistols, axes, and some other unpleasant surprises waiting for you, so definitely not a game for the light-hearted.
Number three Madison, a game I am so excited about, was created by Bloodless Games and has been in development for over five years. This is a massive passion project by what I believe is a solo or duo development team, and it's coming out next month on July 8th, but let's take a look at the actual game.
