Top 10 Historical Games Scheduled to Be Released in 2022

After a game focused on a historical era? There are several games that offer it, and in this list we are highlighting them. In 2022, players will be able to progress through some of the sculptural games of this era, whether with a military focus or building an ancient Egyptian civilization. That said, don’t think this game has been ranked yet. There are still many unreleased games, so the rankings are subject to change at any time until the end of 2022.

Top 10 Games

  • Developer: Strategy Lab
  • Publisher: CreativeForge Games, PlayWay, Strategy Labs
  • Platform: PC
  • Release: 2022

Builders of Egypt may be the city-building game to keep an eye on. This year isn’t the only city building and management game set in ancient Egypt. Also on our list is Pharaoh: A New Era. You can read more about it below. In other words, the game will put the player in control of Egypt and building a civilization. With ever-changing political struggles and a military force advancing into your territory, you must run your city efficiently.

So far, the title is slated for release later this year, but we can see the experience a bit earlier. Builders of Egypt: Prologue is available as a free early access game. Although this prologue actually started in 2020, it showed fans what the developers, Strategy Labs, are making. Meanwhile, the official game release date has not yet been set. However, another prologue demo is coming out this year, so we should be able to see again how the game has shaped since the first prologue came out in 2020.

#9 Track to Yomi

  • Developer: Leonard Menchiari, Flying Wild Hog
  • Publisher: Devovler Digital
  • Platform: PS4, X/S, PC, XBO, PS5
  • Release: 2022

Trek To Yomi is an upcoming samurai game that aims to create a cinematic experience. Here, the player takes on the role of a young swordsman, Hiroki, who takes an oath. When his master died, Hiroki dedicated his life to protecting the village and loved ones. Meanwhile, the developers have made the game a black-and-white movie-style experience. Visually, Trek To Yomi would look like an old-school samurai movie.

As you explore various villages and environments, you will fight against the enemies that appear. Don’t think it will be just another Ghost of Tsushima game, as you’ll find the game closer to a 2.5D setup. But we’ll have to wait for more videos showing the title and release date. As of now, no specific date has been specified for the game outside of its 2022 release period.

#8 Six Days Inn Fallujah

Top 10 Games

Six Days in Fallujah had an interesting development process. The game first caught public attention in 2009 and caused controversy. The title came too premature for most people’s taste, as the game was depicting an actual battle that took place just a few years ago. Due to the much attention and controversy this game received, ultimately publisher Konami took the game off the ground entirely. Eventually, Six Days in Fallujah was abandoned until it was announced that the game was in development again.

There doesn’t seem to be much controversy this time around to help developers bring this title to market. That said, players can expect a more realistic tactical shooter with gameplay slightly similar to Socom in that they set up their attacks while commanding a squad. Of course, it looks like there will be multiplayer support. That means you can drop AI companions for some of your friends as you try to recreate the second Battle of Fallujah, one of the bloodiest battles the US military has participated in since the Vietnam War.

#7 Company of Heroes 3

Top 10 Games of 2022

  • Developer: Artifact Entertainment
  • Publisher: Sega
  • Platform: PC
  • Release: NA

Fans of the Company of Heroes franchise will have their third installment later this year. This is an RTS title set in World War II. To be precise, this third piece is set in theaters in Italy and North Africa. You will lead your allies into battle as you fight enemies, but the game has many options that can change the end of the campaign. Meanwhile, the developers have focused a bit more on the actual destruction physics in this new release. The system has been revamped so you can see even the smallest details of a building get hit by artillery just as individual bricks are shattered. New mechanics also allow players to chain together a series of commands to execute when pausing and resuming combat.

#6 Knights of Honor II: Sovereign

Top 10 Games

  • Developer: Black Sea Games
  • Publisher: THQ Nordic
  • Platform: PC
  • Release: NA

If you’ve been interested in grand RTS games in the past, but were hesitant because of their complexity, give Knights of Honor II: Sovereign a chance. This is an upcoming title that puts players to the throne. You must try to take over Europe in the Middle Ages. Like any other thrilling grand RTS game, features like religious perspective, diplomacy, city development management, appointment of civil servants, spy removal and more are available.

But the biggest advantage here is that developers are making management easier. This is potentially a gateway game to the entire genre, so there shouldn’t be any moments where players get overwhelmed. Of course, the completeness of the game is not known until the game is released. Unfortunately, Knights of Honor II: Sovereign doesn’t have a release date set for the game yet.

#5 Man of War II

Top Games of 2022

  • Developer: Best Way
  • Distributor: 1C Entertainment
  • Platform: PC
  • Release: 2022

Men of War II is an RTS centered on the Eastern and Western fronts of WWII. The game features a story campaign that drives people through warfare experience with the Allied and Soviet forces. Meanwhile, the battle is largely up to the player. They may attempt a variety of ambush, attempt cover in ever-changing terrain, or be the first to take action. The gameplay should feel alive and fresh throughout the campaign. Not only does it provide a variety of environments for combat, but you can also find 45 battalions and hundreds of different vehicles within the roster. This means you can always join in online PvP matches or join a friend in co-op mode if you want more competitive gameplay.

#4 Expedition: Rome

Top 10 Games

  • Developer: Logic Artist
  • Publisher: THQ Nordic
  • Platform: PC
  • Released: January 20, 2022

The third Expeditions installment is out. If you don’t remember, there were Expeditions: Viking and Expeditions: Conquistador that were previously on the market. Meanwhile, this new installment is Expeditions: Rome, where the player takes on the role of Legatus. When an unknown political enemy murdered your father, you were forced to leave Rome, returning only after trying to ascend the ranks through a decorative military career. Players are exposed to a turn-based strategy game in which they must win battles, gain close companions and regain control of Rome. However, each choice presented throughout the campaign plays an important role in its fate. It could mean losing allies and legions, and it could even mean the fall of Rome.

#3 Stillizing

Top games

Steelrising is an upcoming game from Spiders. These are the people who recently launched GreedFall. We’re getting a fictional era story set in the French Revolution of the 1700s in this game. Here, the tyrant Louis XVI sent a mechanical army to quell the revolution through ruthless bloodshed. Players will assume the role of Aegis, a mechanical wonder created by skilled engineers. Aegis must face the king’s army to end the reckless battle. Players can use their flies to their advantage as they roam the streets, run on rooftops, and fight the constant flood of enemies while ensuring the success of the revolution. This is an interesting concept and we would love to hear more about the game. So far, the game is expected to be released in June.

#2 Isonzo


  • Developer: M2H, BlackMill Games
  • Publisher: MH2
  • Platform: PS4, X/S, XBO, PC, PS5
  • Release: 2022

A notable FPS game this year is Isonzo. These are the stories of developers who have also released acclaimed military FPS games such as Verdun and Tannenberg. Both games were based on World War I, and Isonzo can now be added to their collections. This particular installment is based on players using tactical skills within the Alpine. From here, you will cross the Italian front as you struggle for control of the Isonzo River Valley and Alpine territory.

The development team has worked hard to provide an authentic era FPS experience in games of the past, and we expect the same in this release. In a war-torn town, you will fight in real weapons and uniforms. Again, their past releases have been well-received, and although a release date has not yet been attached, it is expected that this release will be the same. Instead, it looks like we could get Isonzo within this year.

#1 Pharaoh: A New Era

DOTA 2022

  • Developer: Trisell Interactive
  • Publisher: Doemu
  • Platform: PC
  • Release: NA

You may not remember, but Pharaoh was released by development studio Impressions Games in 1999 with Sierra Studios. This is an isometric city building game in which the player attempts to build an ancient Egyptian civilization. A few years later, we remake a game called Pharaoh: A New Era. The game is built from scratch with new code, but the overall gameplay is still the same. Players must work from scratch with scarce resources to build an administration and empire. This means that you need to ensure that your people are well fed and protected against the various obstacles that may appear. Meanwhile, you’ll build how the city is shaped, from various shelters to massive monuments towering above the ground.
