When it comes to the latest games, it’s often a case of what’s old is new again. So, it shouldn’t surprise you that some of the best new games of the month are reboots, remasters and rereleases. We’re talking specifically about the new Saints Row, which looks all sorts of ridiculous fun, a remaster of the acclaimed Marvel’s Spider-Man and a collection of retro Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games for old-school gamers and those looking to catch up on some classics. On a more original note, we’re also keen to check out the violent sports title Rollerdrome, while F1 Manager 2022 looks set to capture all of the technicality and drama both on and off of the circuit.

7. Cult of the Lamb

Cults are not supposed to be cute, yet the indie release Cult of the Lamb is looking to be one of 2022’s adorable games (even with the bloodshed). In this upcoming action/strategy title, you play as a possessed lamb on a quest to build a loyal following of woodland creatures to worship your otherworldly saviour. Players collect resources to build new structures and improve their camp while performing dark rituals to appease the gods. Then, train the flock to embark on quests, cleansing non-believers and spreading enlightenment. You’ll also explore a sprawling, randomly generated world, fighting hordes of enemies and defeating rival cult leaders to absorb their power and ensure you’re the leader of the one true cult.
