Top 5 Video Games for September 2022

Top 5 Video Games for September 2022

I hope this article will give you some idea of video games releasing in September 2022 that you might be interested in playing. There are some really brilliant games out this month. Here are my top 5.

Gerda: A Flame In Winter

First off there is Gerda: A Flame in Winter. It is a narrative adventure game developed by Portaplay Gaming & published by Don’t Nod. Yes, you heard that right it is published by Don’t Nod.

When the snow stops falling, the small Danish village of Tinglev will no longer be the same. In this poignant story-driven game, you play as Gerda, a nurse whose life changes on one fateful day in 1945. The tale unfolds not on the front line, but in the intimate setting of the small Danish village where she has lived her whole life. Armed only with her wits and knowledge of her people, Gerda must try to save her loved ones while staying true to herself. 

Choose where to go, how to act, and who to trust in this intimate narrative RPG-lite experience inspired by real life events.

Gerda: A Flame in Winter is coming to Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam) on 1st September


Next up we have Steelrising. It is an action adventure RPG. Developer is Spiders and it is published by Nacon.

We find ourselves in Paris, 1789. The French Revolution has been suppressed with bloodshed by Louis XVI and his merciless mechanical army. Aegis, a mysterious automaton masterpiece, must confront the king’s army alone to save history in this challenging action-RPG.

You are one of the main characters of an alternative history where Paris is being choked by a tyrant king. Allies and enemies with unclear motives will cross your path, such as Marie-Antoinette, Lafayette and Robespierre.

It’s up to you to cut a path through all the plotting and put an end to one man’s madness so that the French Revolution succeeds.

It will be released on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X the 8th September.

Little Orpheus

Little Orpheus is my 3rd entry. It is a technicolour side-scrolling adventure game which has been inspired by classic films such as Flash Gordon and Sinbad. Developed by The Chinese Room and published by Secret Mode, it will be released on the 13th September 2022 on PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch. Some of you may be aware that the game was released on Apple Arcade on 12 June 2020 and this will be the port to PC and console.

Join our bold yet hapless hero Comrade Ivan Ivanovich as he explores lost civilizations, undersea kingdoms, prehistoric jungles and lands beyond imagination. Gasp as he battles the subhuman tribe of the Menkv and escapes the clutches of dreadful monsters! Cheer as he triumphs over impossible odds and untold dangers in the subterranean worlds!

With stunning visuals, brilliant acting and a world-class score, Little Orpheus is a subterranean epic you’ll never forget. Comrades, to the centre!


My fourth entry is Soulstice. As the name suggests it is adopting a souls-like formula BUT it is putting a very distinctive twist on things. Developed by Reply Game Studios and published by Modus Games it will be available on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X.

Soulstice invites players to uncover the dark truth of the Chimera, a hybrid warrior born of two souls: Briar and Lute. They are sisters who have been reborn as Chimera, and they are the only ones who can oppose the Wraiths, vile and ravenous beings that have come pouring into this world from the other side of the Veil. Only by mastering the abilities of both characters will players be able to unlock their full potential as Chimera and put an end to the invasion before it’s too late.

Explore a dark world brimming with hidden mysteries, master a diverse combat system, and inhabit the dual forces of two sisters in a coming-of-age dark fantasy story with fast-paced action, vicious enemies, and spectacular boss fights.

Soulstice will be released on the 20th September.

Valkyrie Elysium

My final entry is Valkyrie Elysium developed by Soleil and Published by Square Enix.

Valkyrie Elysiumis the fifth game in the Valkyrie series of RPGs, to be released for PlayStation and PC.

The game’s unique art style beautifully depicts a collapsing world as Ragnarok looms. The All-Father Odin, with the last of his strength, created an emissary of redemption, Valkyrie; her sole task being the salvation of a doomed world.

Effortlessly soar through the battlefield and perform high-speed actions with the new Soul Chain system. Utilize a wide array of abilities and skills at the Valkyrie’s disposal to unleash devastating combos.

Valkyrie Elysium will be released on the 29th September on PlayStation. I am afraid PC gamers have to wait a little longer as the release date for PC will be the 11th November .
