A host of new and remastered editions are among the new video games releasing in March 2022. Covering all major platforms — PS4, PS5, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch, these take players into diverse worlds ranging from immersive discoveries to high-octane action.
A look at the video games releasing in March 2022
WWE 2K22 is among the most exciting video games set to release in March 2022. Fans of arcade gaming, as well as WWE, are always eager to try the moves of their favourite wrestlers. Of course, who doesn’t like to apply a ‘rock bottom’?
Following WWE 2K22 is Grand Theft Auto V Remastered, which is designed specifically for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. This game is particularly noteworthy because of the special fandom that GTA V commands.
In some cases, the video game release dates were pushed back from their original schedule. This is why fans hope that the wait for the titles is worth it.
However, the fact to be noted is that the list of games releasing in March is not as packed with highly interesting offerings as the month of February when gamers were able to lay hands on a series of much-anticipated titles such as Destiny 2: The Witch Queen, CrossfireX, Horizon Forbidden West, and The King of Fighters in quick succession.

Release Date: 1 March 2022
Platforms: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, PC
FAR: Changing Tides is the sequel to FAR: Lone Sails which was released in 2018. Like the predecessor, the game continues in a dystopian world where water covers most of the planet.
The game’s protagonist is a young boy who goes on an adventure in a sailing submarine-like vessel that can also commute on land.
The objective of the game is to find lost relics, fuel for the vessel, solve puzzles to progress and keep the ship functioning through storms and mechanical damages. A unique feature of the game, which has been developed by Okomotive, is its hand-painted locations, which range from seashores to basins in valleys of flooded forests.

Developed by Polyphony Digital and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment, Gran Turismo 7 arrives in the 25th anniversary year of the iconic game.

There are numerous game modes to choose from: Arcade, Driving School and GT Campaign among others. The game brings back the GT Simulation Mode, which lets players customise and trade cars and unlock new ones while playing the solo campaign. The GT Sport Mode is for those who like one-on-one competitions.
The game is designed to give the best of fun to all kinds of gamers, including those who have a special interest in the design aspects of cars such as tuners and livery creators. There are over 420 cars to play with and over 90 tracks to race on including the famous ones that appeared in earlier GT games.
