Can you believe that we’re nearly at the halfway point of 2022? Our May 2022 Game Releases continue to be light and breezy, following a few big delays such as Forspoken and Sons of the Forest being moved to October.

Despite the light offering, we’re treated to a few potentially enjoyable indies and re-releases led by Trek To Yomi and Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising. With a few high-profile titles on the horizon like Vampire The Masquerade: Swansong and The Evil Dead, it’s definitely a good month to catch up on your backlog while preparing for the jam-packed gaming season once Q3 and Q4 come in.

Without further ado, here are some of the biggest May 2022 Game Releases!

May 2022 Game Releases

Sifu: Vengeance Edition

Release Date: May 3, 2022
Platform: PS4, PS5

Kicking off the May 2022 Game Releases is the physical release of Sloclap’s Sifu, which launched to good reviews from both critics and players.

Dubbed the Vengeance Edition, this release will include a collectible, Steelbook, 3 Lithographs, The Art of Sifu – 48-page artbook, and a Digital Soundtrack.

Loot River

Release Date: May 3, 2022
Platform: PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One

This is an interesting take on the Soulslike genre from straka.studio, the creators of Superhot Presents. You explore the veritable river by using platforms to fit into pieces while fighting fearsome enemies. The deeper you go into this proverbial rabbit hole, the better the loot that you get at the risk of losing it all.

Pick of the Month: Trek to Yomi

Release Date: May 5, 2022
Platform: PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S

We’ve been curious and excited about this game since it was announced back in E3. As part of the May 2022 Game Releases, we can finally experience this dark samurai adventure for ourselves. For those who enjoyed the Kurosawa mode in Ghost of Tsushima, Trek to Yomi is definitely a game to check out this month.

Pick of the Month 2: Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising

Release Date: May 10, 2022
Platform: PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC

On the heels of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is the Action-RPG beat-em-up companion title Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising. However, as indicated from our recent preview, it is so much more than that.

With the May 2022 Game Releases being a bit light, it’s a great opportunity to take a look at the first title coming to this brand new franchise, and we are expecting great things.

Salt and Sacrifice

Release Date: May 10, 2022
Platform: PS4, PS5, PC

With the Soulslike genre continuing to grow strong, the sequel to the equally excellent Salt and Sanctuary gets a release date this May with Salt and Sacrifice. With a newly updated and overhauled system, return once again to hunt mages in single-player while invading other inquisitors’ spaces in one of the anticipated May 2022 Game Releases.

The Centennial Case: A Shijima Story

Release Date: May 12, 2022
Platform: PS5, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch

While full-motion video games have been a thing in the past, with the exception of a few fantastic titles like Her Story and Erica, there hasn’t been much out and most of them have been relegated to a narrative-driven mystery genre. The Centennial Case: A Shijima Story is unique by changing the setting, making it a period piece that seems like an interesting one to look out for.

Evil Dead: The Game

Release Date: May 13, 2022
Platform: PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S

Previously delayed from its March release date to Friday the 13th this May, the cult classic film favorite The Evil Dead gets a video game adaptation that looks to be in the same vein as other horror games of its type. As part of the May 2022 Game Releases, take the role of iconic Ash Williams as you duke it out with zombies and other forces of darkness.

Deadcraft

Release Date: May 19, 2022
Platform: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch

From the creators of Daemon X Machina, Deadcraft is a survival action game from XSEED. Play as Reid, a half human and half zombie protagonist, as you seek vengeance against the ones who have done you wrong.

Vampire The Masquerade: Swansong

Release Date: May 19, 2022
Platform: PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S

With VTM Bloodlines 2 still up in the air, fans of the series can sink their teeth into Vampire The Masquerade: Swansong, a narrative RPG from the creators of The Council. Every action has consequences on both your character and the overall world. Learn skills and find the fine balance between your vampire nature and your humanity.

Dolmen

Release Date: May 20, 2022
Platform: PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S

From developers Prime Matter, Dolmen is an intriguing third-person action RPG with a unique cosmic horror sci-fi setting that looks like a mix between Warframe and souls-like titles. Players looking for a challenge might want to put this on their list as part of the May 2022 Game Releases.

Pacman Museum+

Release Date: May 27, 2022
Platform: PS5, PC

Bear witness to the storied history of our favorite pellet munching hero as he outwits the ghosts that chase him. With 25 unique titles to play, whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a newcomer to this series, there’s lots of fun to be had and experiences to discover.
