play5 02/22 with cover story about the hits 2022, big preview of Elex 2

Happy New Year! 2022 is finally here and with it our traditional preview of the next 12 months. In our series on Hits 2022, we introduce you to the most important titles of the year, including Horizon: Forbidden West, God of War: Ragnarök, Gran Turismo 7 and A Plague Tale: Requiem. And of course we also have one or two insider tips for you on board.

However, we have excluded two titles from the series, which we have looked at in detail again for this issue. On the one hand, we were able to play the new Piranha Bytes title Elex 2 for several hours and tell you what already works great and where the Gothic makers should readjust again. On the other hand, we have the first tangible information about Grid Legends. In addition to the very ambitious story campaign, you can read what innovations the developers Codemasters have up their sleeves in the large preview.

The test part is bursting at the seams again at the turn of the year. In addition to a few late 2021 highlights such as Chorus, Death’s Door or Solar Ash, we are also putting the farming simulator through its paces. And for all those who cannot understand why so many people enjoy driving a virtual tractor, we also have the special “Fascination Farming Simulator” ready in the magazine section. There you can also read our traditional annual review, in which we select the winners and losers of the year and in which the members of the editorial team take a personal look back at 2021.
