Just dance 2021 switch how to play
Beginner Tips Every Just Dance 2022 Player Needs
The game that promises to keep everyone dancing makes a return once again with Just Dance 2022, the latest installment of the ever-popular dance rhythm video game series by Ubisoft. The series continues to prove successful for the company, even besting some of its recent Triple-A titles.
A lot of that success can be attributed to the games' broad appeal and relatively low learning curve, meaning that just about anyone with a passing interest in music or dancing can give it a shot. Not much has changed since 2021, so veteran players should have no trouble navigating its menus and loading up any of the newly added songs. But for anyone planning to try out the game for the first time, or after a long break from the series, here are a few things worth keeping in mind.

Updated January 20, 2022, by Michael Abayomi: Just Dance 2022 continues to provide entertainment and exercise for fans young and old. We've updated this list to include two additional entries that should help both new and returning players get a hang of those trickier dance routines even faster.
7/7 Available Platforms
One of the first things anyone looking to get into Just Dance 2022 should know is on what platforms the game is available. Like most years, the latest installment of Just Dance is available to play on just about every modern console and gaming service. These include the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Google Stadia. Wii owners have been left out though as support for the Nintendo Wii was dropped with last year's release of Just Dance 2021.
Each platform offers its own unique advantages, like portability on the Nintendo Switch for example, and the ability to take the game with you anywhere you go. The game is still not available on PC for whatever reason though, unless you're willing to settle for Just Dance Now instead, their cloud-based subscription service that works with smartphones and an internet browser, and offers a vast library of past Just Dance hits for players to dance to.
6/7 The Song List
Players of Just Dance 2022 should definitely take the time to familiarize themselves with the list of songs that come with the game. After all, a new Just Dance game is just as good as the songs on its playlist. Thankfully, Just Dance 2022 comes packed with quite a few bangers. These include recent hits like Save Your Tears (Remix) by The Weeknd & Ariana Grande, and Levitating by Dua Lipa, to older classics like Buttons by The Pussycat Dolls and Rock Your Body by Justin Timberlake. There are 46 songs in total, including 5 regional exclusives.

And for those players craving even more songs, they'll be pleased to find out that the game comes with a one-month free trial of Just Dance Unlimited (another one of their subscription services) that includes over 700 songs from past games and elsewhere. If you've happened to listen to pop radio or the Top 40 charts anytime within the past two decades, then chances are you should recognize quite a few of them. The best part is that the game offers a nice mix of songs and genres - from rock to pop and even South African house music - ensuring that all types of music lovers will find songs to immediately gravitate towards.
5/7 The Different Editions
Aside from being available across multiple platforms, Just Dance 2022 also has two different editions for players to choose from. There is the standard edition which costs $49.99 at launch and comes with 40+ songs, as well as the one-month free trial of Just Dance Unlimited mentioned above. Then there is the deluxe edition which retails for $59.99 at launch.
The main difference between both versions, aside from sporting slightly different cover art, is that the deluxe edition comes with four months of Just Dance Unlimited. That is the one-month free trial from the standard edition, as well as an additional three months subscription valued at $9.99. There are additional renewal options for Just Dance Unlimited at $3.99 for one month and $24. 99 for a full year. It is worth noting that an internet connection will be required to use the service, since the songs are streamed over the internet, as opposed to played from a disc or hard drive like the ones that come with the base game.
4/7 The Controller Options
Just Dance 2022 is a rhythm game and as such, the game is played primarily through motion controls. This means that PlayStation players would want to have a PlayStation Camera handy, while Nintendo Switch players will need to use their left or right joy-cons. Players on the former can take advantage of the peripheral's more accurate, full-body tracking.

Xbox Series S and X players on the other hand might have to fish out their old Kinect sensor bars to join in on the fun, because not only does the game not offer support for traditional controllers, it also doesn't allow them to use any other type of camera. Thankfully, all versions can also be played with a compatible smartphone, using the Just Dance Controller app available on the Apple Store and Google Play Store. Though it is worth noting that Nintendo Switch users will still require a joy-con to get past the game's start screen, even if they intend to use their smartphones to play during the actual songs and dance routines.
3/7 The Different Modes
Just Dance 2022 has no shortage of game modes available for players to choose from, which can be quite daunting for newbies. The good news though is that it gives an option to dive right in with a randomized playlist in the Quickplay Mode. For anyone looking to explore the other available options, the game has quite a few.
There is the Co-op Mode, where up to six players can play together locally, using supported peripherals and smartphones. Then there is the World Dance Floor, where you can play with other players around the world in a tournament-styled competition. Sweat Mode is geared towards fitness buffs, and it lets you start your own routine and track the calories burnt along the way. And then there is the Kids Mode, which, as the name suggests, is geared towards children with family-friendly songs and simpler routines.
2/7 Song Difficulty
As was the case with previous entries in the series, Just Dance 2022 has a number of songs for players to choose from. But not all of those songs are created equally. Parents will be pleased to know that younger players have a kid-friendly playlist of songs with simplified dance routines that shouldn't cause them too much frustration.
But for everyone else, they might want to be mindful of their chosen song's difficulty, which can be seen on the song selection screen. There are alternative dance routines for some of the songs that turn them into full-blown workouts, so it is best to avoid them until you are ready to break a sweat. Those looking for an even greater challenge can also unlock an extreme mode on certain songs once they've racked up enough points, which can effectively turn a previously-mastered song into a gauntlet of skill and endurance.
1/7 Practice Makes Perfect
The key to mastery in Just Dance 2022 comes with taking the time to learn the various dance routines. The good news is that most of them have repeating movements that are generally easy to follow. But knowing when to expect them can be quite tricky the first time around.
This is where practice comes in, as you'll grow more familiar with the ebb and flow of each song and its routine the more times you go over them. There is no shortcut to putting in that practice, unfortunately, at least if you intend to stop flailing about awkwardly each time you miss another move which you should have seen coming a mile away. Acquiring the skills needed to dance to each song like one of the pros is relatively straightforward, you'll just need to put in the time and effort.

Beginner Tips For Just Dance 2022
By Tristan Jurkovich
Ubisoft's Just Dance 2022 is a whole lot of fun, but what are some tips players should keep in mind?
Just Dance 2022 is not a typical game from Ubisoft that can be mastered. There is no campaign to venture, or bosses to defeat. Just Dance 2022 is instead packed full of dances to help gamers have fun alone or with friends. It is one of the essential modern game series for parties.
RELATED: Nintendo Switch Games To Play if You Like Wii Sports
Just Dance 2022 is fun for all ages but it can also be an intense workout. The main focus of the tips is to help get players situated before the dancing even begins. There are also a few things players should be aware of before checking out the game.
6/6 Limber Up And Get That Water Ready
It’s important to stretch before exercising be it if someone is going to player Just Dance 2022 or go hiking in the woods. Make sure to stretch afterward with a cooldown too. It may not sound like a “cool” thing to do, but don’t discount the warmup or cooldown. Doing so will lessen the chance of getting injured while working out.
It’s also a good idea to have plenty of water nearby along with a towel. Finally, make sure to clear space. Get all furniture out of the way and the higher the ceiling the better. If the player can help it, also make sure to dance on some sort of rug, yoga mat, or better yet, carpet. It can be quite easy to slip on a smooth surface like wood paneling or tile while dancing.
5/6 Don’t Just Follow The Controller’s Moves
Just Dance 2022 is only following one part of the body no matter if gamers are playing on the Switch with Joy-Cons or on an Xbox with full motion controls. That would be the right hand. It might be tempting to just follow the right controller’s prompts to get the best score but doing so will rob players of what this series is all about: having fun.

Get into the entire dance routine. Let that body sweat. Doing so will create an actual full workout. It may not gather many points in the game, but your body will certainly rack up the points. That’s the best high score a player can obtain: a ripped body.
4/6 How Multiplayer Works
Six people can team up in co-op gameplay. This multiplayer setup works even if a song is situated around a single dancer. When duos, trios, or quarters are involved, things get a little trickier.
There is also the World Dance Floor, an online versus mode. Players who jump in will compete with others in three randomly chosen consecutive songs. Points will be given out during the match and whoever dances the best, wins. It’s as simple as that. It would have been nice to see more customization with this mode, but it is interesting, to say the least.
3/6 Just Dance Unlimited Tips
The game only has about 40 songs on the disc/card, but there is also Just Dance Unlimited. This service collects over 700 songs from past entries in the series. There are various subscription methods players can buy online from days to months to years.
The prices are reasonable too. The nicest part is that Just Dance 2022 comes with a month-long trial. Since there are so many songs with the service, scrolling through them all to find a potential favorite could take forever since there is loading involved. That’s why it’s suggested to look up the databases on a phone or computer instead. There is also a search tab in the game.
2/6 Options To Be Aware Of
There aren’t that many options in Just Dance 2022. It would have been nice to see a way to turn off the vending machine's prompts. Players can skip past them but they, along with some other pop-ups, can ruin the flow of a good workout. There are three options in the game players should be aware of.
RELATED: Classic Signs Of An Ubisoft Game
First, turn on the Activate Beat Vibrations. This matters in the Switch version the most since the Joy-Cons have that HD Rumble feature. The vibrations can help players keep the beat while dancing. It’s another way to get into the groove just like the lyrics. However, if players don’t want the lyrics on screen, or the dance prompts, they can both be turned off. Turning off the pictographs can create a more challenging experience if players are looking for that.
1/6 Record Your Dance
This is a life hack that works for all entries in the series. If players have access to a game capture unit then they should record their dances. Then, on a computer, edit down the song so that it starts and stops without any filler. People can then play these recordings and work out however they want. For example, stick the songs onto a USB device and then play them on a PS4.
This eliminates any equipment involved as well as those pesky menus. There is no longer a score involved or in-game reward incentives but getting a solid workout will be reward enough for most. The choreography and background graphics are great in Just Dance 2022, but some intros and exits are a little long. It’s another thing that can hamper a good sweat. Do not use this method for parties though. This is strictly a tip for solo play.
Just Dance 2022 was released on November 4, 2021 and is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.

Gameplay videos from bloggers and first impressions of players - how the early beta of Battlefield 2042 started - DTF games
No problems, as expected, but many test participants are still satisfied.
The early open beta of Battlefield 2042 started on October 6 at 10:00 a.m. ET. Due to the large influx of players, not everyone was able to connect to the servers, and some users did not get early access, although they said they had an active EA Play subscription. nine0003
Reportedly, some players are still unable to access the beta due to subscription or server issues.
Still not working.
lol nice #BattlefieldBeta #BattlefieldOpenBeta #Battlefield2042
Players who were able to connect to the servers were generally positive about the Battlefield 2042 beta, noting enjoyable shooting and new mechanics like weapon customization on the go. nine0003
#BattlefieldBeta Been playing a few rounds as Recon and loving it. Only downside so far is the hitboxes of certain trees and terrain. I am trying to hit a target behind a tree or behind a box and I can't hit because the hitbox of the tree or the terrain is way to big.
Played a couple of Scout matches and I really like it. The only downside so far is the hitboxes of some trees and objects. I'm trying to hit a target behind a tree or a box, but I can't because the hitbox is too big. nine0003
First game on and I'm loving the #BattlefieldBeta
The first game is over and I already like the BF 2042 beta.
Absolutely loving the #BattlefieldBeta I’ve had a few issues with weird graphical glitches on screen and attachments for guns resetting after I respawn but other than that the game runs great on PS5 and can’t wait to see more stuff on launch.
Very happy with the BF 2042 beta. Ran into a couple of graphical glitches and a bug with resetting weapon attachments after respawn, but other than that the game plays great on PS5. Looking forward to the release to try out more content. nine0003

gameplay is good and the game looks stunning!
it definitely looks like a huge improvement from bf 5
Just completed two matches of the BF 2042 beta - and it was great. The game is very fun and I like the map from the beta. The gameplay is good, and the picture is awesome. It's definitely a step up from BFV. nine0003
Idk what it is but something about grapple hooks makes games so much more fun.
I don't know exactly how, but thanks to the grappling hook, any game becomes very fun.
Many fans have specifically noted a huge tornado that can randomly appear on the map, destroying buildings and lifting up vehicles and infantry.
Okay the tornado in #Battlefield2042#BattlefieldBeta is pretty much the best thing ever! nine0003
Tornado in BF 2042 is the best thing I have ever seen!
😍😍 I can’t believe we are finally playing bf2042 and 2nd game in the tornado comes
(On PC BTW)
#BattlefieldBeta #BattlefieldOpenBeta #Battlefield2042
I can't believe I'm playing BF 2042 beta and I saw a tornado during my second match.
#BattlefieldBeta #Battlefield2042 the tornado is actually insane. there's a clip of it destroying the rocket at the end. nine0003
Tornadoes in BF 2042 are just crazy. At the end of the video, you can see how it destroys a space rocket.
Not without dissatisfied players who report bugs, glitches and technical problems.
Lots of bugs. Way too many PC players on cross-play. Frame drops are crazy. Map is pretty empty. Hope this gets polished before release, definitely has massive potential. #BattlefieldBeta
Full of bugs and too many PC players in crossplay. The frame rate keeps dropping and the map looks pretty empty. I hope all this will be fixed before the release, because the game has a lot of potential. nine0003
The #BattlefieldBeta is absolute jank city, had a player phase up out the ground like kitty Pryde and kill me, multiple invisible players, parachutes don't work properly, revives don't work properly, weapon attachments don't work, the list goes on and on. Disappointing
The BF 2042 beta is full of glitches. Ran into a player who appeared out of the ground as Kitty Pryde and then killed me. Other than that, it's full of invisible players, parachutes don't work, revives don't really activate either, and the same goes for changing weapon attachments - the list goes on. All this is disappointing. nine0003
So the #BattlefieldBeta is going well
Beta BF 2042 is going well.
Players from Russia have noticed that Russian rap can be heard on the radio in Battlefield 2042.
The playlist includes at least three tracks, the lyrics of one of them contain the words "Dance, baby, dance", the lyrics of the other: "Stop suffering bullshit, it's time to get together."
The network is already full of BF 2042 beta gameplay videos in high quality. Bloggers tested different specialists, and also showed battles on the ground and in the air. nine0003
