2021 was a pretty good year for gaming. While the year ended with a bang for Xbox with the launch of Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 (review), Sony had a decent year as well with exclusives like Deathloop (review), Kena: Bridge of Spirits (review), Returnal (review) and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart (review). We also saw a slew of third-party games from the likes Resident Evil: Village (review), Hitman 3, It Takes Two, and many more. However, 2021 is behind us and it is time to look forward to 2022. And while some of our most anticipated games like Sifu and Horizon Forbidden West are slated to launch in February 2022, January has some good games worth checking out. Here are 4 games launching in January 2022 that deserve your attention.  

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection

Release date: January 28

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection includes Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy remastered for PS5 (review). Both games were originally launched for the PS4.

Gamers will need a 120Hz compatible TV like the Sony X90J or the LG C1 to take advantage of 120FPS in the games. Sadly, the upgrade for the game isn’t free if you already own the game. According to the PlayStation Store, “Players who purchased UNCHARTED 4: A Thief’s End, UNCHARTED: The Lost Legacy, or UNCHARTED 4: A Thief’s End and UNCHARTED: The Lost Legacy digital bundle have the option to pay INR 500” for the upgrade.
