Best 2022 shooter games

There is no slowing down for the gaming industry when it comes to producing legendary shooting games, although the previous year had its setback, in 2022, these problems seem to start to fade away, accelerating production rate once again; welcome to the best 2022 shooter games.

Shooters! Previously the monarchs of gaming, they are now one of the most popular genres, at the forefront of every graphics breakthrough and the first word on any studio's pre-production document with a few million to spend.

Since the arms race between Quake, Unreal, Half-Life, and

Call of Duty

ushered in a golden era of particularly violent narrative in 3D settings, the industry has broadened its horizons and discovered new consumers in unexpected places.

As years passed and Covid-19 made its way into the hands of large gaming firms, it was assumed that the manufacturing of legendary games would not stop, but rather slow down.

In 2022, we can see that the definition is larger than ever, and that, despite the fact that new 3D Realms shooters continue to appear, the favorite FPS still has plenty of life. Then, as

is one of the most expected ones.

Scorn is an upcoming first-person biopunk survival horror adventure video game for Microsoft Windows and Xbox Series X/S created by Serbian company Ebb Software.

The game is based on the works of H. R. Giger and Zdzislaw Beksinski, two visual painters.

The player takes control of a skinless humanoid who is lost on a hypothetical extraterrestrial world inhabited with strange animals and live techno-organic structures made of steel, flesh, and bone. In a non-linear approach, the player will explore many interconnected places in pursuit of answers that will reveal more about the game's environment.

The game will be launched on PC and have console exclusivity on Xbox Series X, running at 4K and 60fps, and will not be released on previous generation consoles since the developer team did not want to waste development time on a sub-par version of the game and overall experience.

Scorn will be available on Steam, Windows Store, and GOG, among other platforms.

The game was supposed to be out in autumn 2021, but it was postponed until 2022.

Crossfire X

Now that we have reached the top 3 of the 10 best FPS games releasing in 2022 list, what do you think about the games so far? Which one of them is worth playing the most?

CrossfireX is the console version of CrossFire, a first-person shooter (2007).

The multiplayer component of the free-to-play game is comparable to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, in which two opposing teams representing two hostile private military groups battle in game types to fulfill goals. In classic mode, the assaulting team attempts to place a bomb, while the defending team must prevent them from doing so.

Standard weapons are available to all players. The Spectre mode is a spin-off of the traditional format, with the attacking players being spectres with just knives and the ability to remain invisible when not moving. A Modern mode is also available, in which the two sides compete for possession of two objective locations on a map.

There are various operations in the single-player component, which would not be free to play.
