It’s a new year, and while many mark this milestone by making resolutions, the videogame industry seems content to hang onto old habits. That’s right: it’s another deathly quiet January on the triple-A front. Sure, God of War’s coming to PC in a week, as is Monster Hunter Rise, but there are no big, brand-new releases heading our way until February, when Dying Light 2, Total War: Warhammer 3, and Elden Ring arrive. What do they say about London buses?
If, like us, you’ve managed to clear out just enough of your gaming backlog over the festive break to justify buying more games, then you’ll be delighted to learn that there are still plenty of indie corkers set to release this month. Want the canine version of Pokémon Snap? How about a mech hack-and-slash game? Or perhaps a hand-drawn horror FPS? January’s indie offerings come in a wide variety of flavours, and we’re confident we’ve got something to suit your tastes.
So, join us as we list six of our most highly anticipated indie PC games coming out in January 2022.
