Video: Top 10 NEW Survival Games of 2021 2022, November

Text: Grisha Prophets

Winter months are the time when joystick rest ceases to seem an unaffordable luxury and goes into the category of ways of salvation from the impending blues. Plus, if you don't go anywhere for the New Year holidays, this is also an opportunity to diversify your leisure time before going back to work. We are talking about new games, the pleasure of which is in no way inferior to watching a good movie or reading an interesting book.

Final fantasy xv

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Final Fantasy is a legendary series of Japanese video games that are largely unrelated to each other. Most of them are separate stories that take place in different worlds, with a variety of characters and plots, and small details connect what is happening: the names of the characters, game mechanics and the topics covered. Therefore, the number XV in the title should not scare you: Final Fantasy XV can be played without knowing anything about the previous parts. This is a real road movie: the main character is Noctis Lucis Tselum, the crown prince of the state of Lucis, in which a magic crystal is kept. The crystal is kidnapped by the hostile country of Niflheim, and the prince, together with his friends, sets out on a journey in a luxury car to get it back.

Dead rising 4

Platforms: Windows, Xbox One

The first part of Dead Rising was released in the mid-2000s, when zombie games were incredibly popular, but ten years later, the series remains one of the funniest (and, admittedly, rather brainless) in the genre. The protagonist is photojournalist Frank West, who finds himself at the epicenter of a zombie invasion. The fourth part takes place in the small town of Willamette in Colorado, where the very first action took place, but this time the zombies decided to attack on Christmas. Dead Rising is an extremely simple game: you need to kill the living dead by all available means, from a lawn mower to a guitar; There are a lot of zombies, improvised means too, all in the best traditions of low-budget horror movies of the 70s and 80s.

The last guardian

Platforms: Playstation 4

The new work of the Japanese game designer Fumito Ueda, who makes very beautiful, thoughtful and not very similar games. Prior to that, he released Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, and together with The Last Guardian, they form something like a trilogy. What unites these games is primarily style and themes. The Last Guardian is the story of a boy who befriends a giant, feathered creature that looks like a griffin named Trico. Like previous Ueda games, the action takes place in a fantasy world: it all starts with the main character having to get out of the ruins of a huge castle. In Ueda's previous work, Shadow of the Colossus, the protagonist had a special relationship with his horse, and this time he decided to devote a whole game of emotional attachment between two living beings: Trico will behave like a real pet, he will need to be trained and find mutual understanding with him.

Super mario run

Platforms: iOS

In 2016, an amazing event happened: Nintendo announced that it will now release games on mobile platforms - something that it has always refused to do. The first thing, of course, is the Mario game Super Mario Run. It will look like a slightly modified Super Mario Bros. for mobile phones, which everyone played in childhood: Mario will run by itself, and you will need to tap the screen only to make him jump. In general, lately good mobile games have disappeared somewhere (even there is only one in this list), so the arrival of Nintendo on iOS and Android is very good news.

The Walking Dead:

A new frontier

Platforms: Windows, OS X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, iOS, Android

Release date: 20th of December

The Walking Dead TellTale Games is one of the most influential games of recent times. The first episode of the first season of the game was released in 2012, and the industry has changed dramatically since then. There are more video games coming out like a TV series, where history is the main thing. They read like a book or look like a movie.The Walking Dead is an almost interactive movie in which at key moments you have to make a choice for the heroes. With the series and comics, games are associated only with the universe (America after the zombie apocalypse) - there is a separate plot and other characters. New Frontier will be the third season of the video game. The main character is still the same - the girl Clementine, who has already grown into a teenager.

Night in the woods

Platforms: Windows, OS X, Linuix, PlayStation 4

May is a young cat who dropped out of college and returned to her hometown of Possum Springs. She lives in the attic of her parents' house and socializes with old friends - Bee the alligator, Greg the fox and his partner, Angus the bear. But then something goes wrong: Mei discovers paranormal abilities, and something strange begins to happen in the forest nearby. In general, a classic story about a small strange town, like "Twin Peaks" or "Stranger Things", only with anthropomorphic animals in the lead roles. The game was invented by game designer Alec Holovka and illustrator Scott Benson - it is thanks to them that Night in the Woods looks very beautiful. According to them, the main thing here is the story, not the gameplay, which will be quite simple: it will be something like a platform game and a quest in which you will have to walk, talk with other characters and gradually solve the mystery.

Gravity rush 2

Platforms: Playstation

The gameplay of Gravity Rush is based on the fact that the main character named Kat can control gravity: she can fly, changing the direction of gravity, walk on walls and fight opponents. In addition to the rather unusual game mechanics, the first part of Gravity Rush was also incredibly entertaining: the action took place in a flying city, which at the same time resembled Mobius comics and Miyazaki cartoons. From the second part, you should expect all the same (but in this case, it's not bad): familiar heroes will return, and the creators honestly admit that they just took all the good things from the first Gravity Rush - and tried to make it even better.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

Platforms: Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

Release date: January 24

The first part of Resident Evil was released in 1996 and has since become an absolute classic: this is a series of horror stories about the sinister corporation Umbrella, zombies, mutants and other monsters and police and army officers who oppose them. For games, they even made a series of films with Milla Jovovich. In the seventh part, Capcom promises to return to the roots and do everything almost like the first time: not a shooter, but a slow horror game in which players will have to fight for survival. It's hard to understand the plot of the series (firstly, the Japanese are masters of tangled stories, and secondly, it's hard not to get lost in more than six parts), but in Resident Evil 7 we play as a new character who doesn't understand anything himself. His name is Ethan, he lives in Louisiana, and it all starts with the fact that he is looking for his missing wife.

Syberia III

Platforms: Windows, OS X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS, Android

"Siberia" by Benoit Sokal is probably remembered by many - these were the most popular adventure games of the 2000s, and the main character, lawyer Kate Walker, became as famous as, for example, Lara Croft. Sokal did not want to do the third part for a long time, but in the end he still agreed - and it was supposed to be released at the end of 2016, but now it has been postponed to the beginning of next year. In any case, it won't be long to wait. Almost nothing is known about the plot, except that it is a continuation of the two previous parts of "Siberia" (so that mammoths, steam automatons and the Yukola people - everything is in place).

Horizon zero dawn

Platforms: Playstation 4

The action of Horizon Zero Dawn is transported a thousand years into the future: the Earth was captured by robots, and people live almost as in primitive times - all technologies are lost, and food is obtained primarily by hunting. The main character, the hunter Aloy, who lives far from the rest of the world, decides to go on a journey and find out more about what is happening around. The game is a classic modern action game: the main character chases robots, shoots them with a bow and travels across a wild planet.Perhaps the main plus of Horizon Zero Dawn is the setting: robots next to primitive people look really unusual.
