Magic Awakened to NARAKA: BLADEPOINT to The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War to Once Be Human, there were a broad selection of titles on show this year that are worth a look.

Harry Potter: Magic Awakened
In 2022, a new immersive collectable card role-playing game called Harry Potter: Magic Awakened will be released for personal computers and mobile devices. The game is centred in the Harry Potter universe, which is known for its magical elements.
Players will take on the role of a young witch or wizard who has recently been accepted to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
They will start their adventure by personalising their character, shopping for school supplies in Diagon Alley, being assigned to a house by the Sorting Hat, and duelling it out in the Dueling Club.
As players go through enthralling new adventures, they will be able to familiarise themselves with characters from the first Harry Potter book series, learn spells and charms, overcome difficult challenges, and engage in duels with other players.
After taking the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan by magical storm with over 50 million downloads, Harry Potter:
Magic Awakened will also feature support for cross-platform play and will soon be heading to additional global markets. Harry Potter: Magic Awakened will also feature cross-platform play support.
NARAKA: BLADEPOINT is a 60-player player-versus-player legendary action battle royale game that has already sold over six million copies in just ninety days.
It will soon be available for mobile devices, and NetEase Connect 2022 was able to debut not only exclusive new gameplay footage but also a brand new hero in the form of Takeda, a samurai who has a demon living inside of him and who comes equipped with a katana and armour. The game will soon be available for mobile devices.
Rise to Battle: The Lord of the Rings [The Lord of the Rings:
Through the use of a geo-strategic seasonal wargame, The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War brings the universe created by the illustrious author J.R.R. Tolkien to life on mobile devices. You can get started with Rise to War right now by consulting IGN’s beginner’s guide, which is chock full of features and plenty of material in its own right.
Once Be Human
During NetEase Connect 2022, Once Be Human was unveiled in its entirety for the first time. It is a novel and bizarre survival game in which players are required to gather supplies and attempt to defend themselves against an unknown threat.
The events of Once Be Human take place forty years after the collapse of civilisation. In this planet, an unexplained silver door opened, releasing stardust into the atmosphere. This stardust corrupted the environment and gave rise to legions of horrific creatures.
Those individuals with extraordinary abilities known as Beyonders, whose minds and hearts are still the continuation and goal of human civilization, are humanity’s final best chance for survival.
Once Be Human will be featured on IGN’s Summer of Gaming in June, so stay tuned for more information on the game.
Another new game called Mission Zero is a competitive stealth game that pits two teams of four against one another. Players take on the role of either the invader or the chaser. The best squad will emerge triumphant after engaging in activities such as infiltration, hacking, and high-risk escapes.
Intruders are given the responsibility of disguising themselves in order to blend in with their surroundings, and they are required to collaborate in order to get sensitive information. Before these intruders can finish their purpose, two chasers need to locate them and bring them in for questioning.
ZOZ: Final Hour
Another brand-new game that made its premiere at NetEase Connect 2022 is called ZOZ: Final Hour. It is a shooting game played from the third-person perspective and has an intriguing new twist.
You and 13 other mercenaries sneak into the city of San Yager, which is overrun with zombies, to put an end to the menace posed by the undead and retrieve precious Blood Crystals.
However, zombies aren’t the only thing you have to worry about since members of your own squad could turn against you at any time.
In addition, players that are eliminated throughout the course of the battle will be resurrected as zombies, equipped with brand new abilities and a limitless number of respawns.
Dead by Daylight Mobile
At the beginning of NetEase Connect 2022, Dead by Daylight Mobile held a celebration to mark its recent debut in Japan and Southeast Asia.
The team has hinted that there will be a “exciting update” for Dead by Daylight Mobile in the west in the near future and that a test for this update will be “coming up very, very soon.”
NetEase intends to continue working closely with Behaviour Interactive to add meaningful content to the game, and the team has also stated that there will be a test for this update “coming up very, very soon.”
In 2022, the open-world apocalypse survival game LifeAfter will be approaching its fourth year, and the game is scheduled to get a new update that will contain a large ocean that players may explore. The expansion will be available for play on personal computers and mobile devices.
Those who haven’t tried LifeAfter yet may feel that the timing is right to do so now, given the game’s over 200 million registered players and the recent debut of 2022’s The Revenant update, which allows players to become hybrids who are half human and half zombie.
The cosmos of the mobile sci-fi game Infinite Lagrange, a huge space simulation, is modified by the millions of people that inhabit it.
The most recent patch for the game, titled “Identity Agreement,” gave players the ability to choose from a variety of identities and make use of the many talents that came with those identities in order to more effectively explore the world.
This coming summer, Infinite Lagrange will add a new feature called “Legacy,” which will provide players the ability to seek for heritage artefacts and utilise those things to construct their own armies. Players will be able to look for legacy items starting this summer.
The next-generation competitive survival looter shooting game, Badlanders, is now available for purchase on mobile devices as well as personal computers. In Badlanders, 25 people battle against one another to see who can be the absolute best.
In order to win, players must kill and take the wealth from other players. The game offers a range of genuine real-world weaponry, and it also has an open economy inside the game itself, which pushes players to spend in order to level up their armament and begin the next fight with an edge.
Identity V is a one-of-a-kind asymmetric video game that combines fascinating gameplay with well-developed character backstories. A crossover event with Mitsuji Kamata, a Japanese artist known for his steampunk-inspired work, will be included in the game.
In addition, the outfit of the Photographer from the ONCE series will eventually be made accessible to investigators at some point in the future.
This online multiplayer game pits 15 players against 15 more in a selection of real historical tanks from World War II and the Cold War on a variety of maps. Tank Company was initially released in China, and will soon be rolled out globally in the near future.
This will introduce even more players to this game, which features a selection of real historical tanks from World War II and the Cold War.
In addition to being able to join a clan, level up their tanks, and personalise them, players will also be able to explore various environments, such as snow-covered villages, hot deserts, and more.
The entire version of Ace Racer, a high-octane racing game in which players’ vehicles may crash through walls, change into new forms while they are in motion, and even soar into the air, is about to be released to players just as the game is about to exit early access.
Participate in races in a variety of cities throughout the globe, including Tokyo, California, and Shanghai, all while striving to become the greatest racer in the world.
Following its debut at NetEase Connect 2022 and subsequent release on March 21, 2022, Vikingard is making a return appearance at the conference this year.
This simulation role-playing game (RPG) for mobile devices puts you in charge of a Viking tribe fighting for glory and allows players to travel throughout Scandinavia and Europe in search of battles.
At the same time, players are tasked with expanding their tribe, forming alliances, and establishing new territories of control. You are even able to form romantic relationships and care for pets.
In addition, the Midsummer expansion for Vikingard will be released in June, which will broaden the scope of the game world even more.
The open beta version of the PC and mobile survival shooter game Lost Light is now available to play. In the video game Lost Light, players assume the character of a soldier serving in the Firefly unit, which is engaged in combat with the Marauders in a post-apocalyptic future.
Players are encouraged to devise their own strategies for surviving the so-called “Exclusion Zone,” which gives them the option to either search for resources covertly or engage in combat with other players in order to plunder their more valuable belongings.
In addition to offering a player-versus-player-versus-environment (PvPvE) experience, Lost Light supports cross-platform play on both PC and mobile devices.
During the third quarter of 2022, Lost Light will begin its first iOS test, and attendees of NetEase Connect 2022 will have the opportunity to earn a limited in-game bundle. This bundle will feature crucial materials that may boost the effectiveness of their shelter renovations.
