2021 is set to be a very special year for gaming because of all the new video games coming out this year. It is even more exciting because it's the first year after the new generation of gaming consoles came out.
Great games are coming for new generation consoles, consoles of the past generation and PCs. No matter what your gaming preferences are, this list of games will surely get you interested.
Ubisoft is very careful with its upcoming titles and they decided to postpone Far Cry 6 launch on February 18th.
The game is expected to come out sometime later in 2021 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox series X, Xbox series S, Google Stadia and Amazon Luna. Far Cry 6 promises a fresh story with many elements to make you excited. That includes the Breaking Bad star Giancarlo Esposito, who is portraying the dictator who will be ruling the island you will explore.
You can expect the new game to bring a tropical island with jungles and beaches for exploration. We are hoping this time the story is much better and the game is more polished than the last games.
One of the biggest returns in 2021 is the return of one of the most famous video game characters, Kratos. The successor to the 2018 blockbuster is coming this year and it bears the name of God of War Ragnarok.
The game was revealed during the PlayStation 5 showcase event and no further details have been revealed. There are no news whether it will be released for Playstation 4 or not. What we know about the game is that it's coming from the same developers of the 2018 game. Considering the quality of Sony's latest games, including the God of War, this is enough to be excited for.
Some new video games coming this year are expected to show us the true power of the new generation of consoles. Ratchet & Clank is one of them.
Ratchet & Clank is one of the most beloved series from Playstation and it is returning with a new game within a few months. The game will once again take the characters to various multidimensional worlds to fight against Dr. Nefarious. It also returns the special gameplay known about the series alongside many new gameplay features.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is coming to PlayStation 5 on 11 June 2021. It is published by Sony and developed by its Insomniac Games studio.
Resident Evil Village is one of the most anticipated video games of 2021. The game setting takes place in a village full of mysteries, where you will meet characters you expect and some that you don't. The game will bring back the story of Ethan Winters and his wife Maya. After surviving the events of Resident Evil 7 they end up in an even more terrifying village.
Resident Evil Village is expected to come out sometime in 2021 for PlayStation 5, Xbox series X and PC. We don't have information about its release for other consoles but there is definitely a possibility.
Horizon Forbidden West is the sequel to 2016's blockbuster Horizon Zero Dawn. It remained as a PS4 exclusive for four years before being released on PC.
The trailer of the new game shows Aloy continuing the exploration of new worlds. Incredible graphics and beautiful scenes make the game even more enjoyable. We can expect the game to bring back the bow and arrow mechanics and take full advantage of the new Dualsense controllers of the PlayStation 5. The game director has revealed that the new game is much bigger than Horizon Zero Dawn. It seems we can expect something worth the wait.
Although it's not fully a new game, Prince of Persia The Sands of Time is one of the most anticipated remakes. The remake is expected to come for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.
There were some concerns about the graphics of the new game and Ubisoft decided to postpone the game indefinitely. We can hope its release is still within 2021. The big hype behind this remake is because of the huge success of the original Prince of Persia The Sands of Time in 2003. The game was definitely a blockbuster at its time. This remake is one of many remakes for other games in the series. This pushes the hype even further as new enhanced Prince of Persia games might be on the way.
Hogwarts Legacy was supposed to be a 2021 game but it got delayed to 2022. The game from Avalanche studio is published by Warner Bros. It is the first major Harry Potter themed game to come out in nearly a decade. This game will introduce you to the magic world before the events of the Harry Potter series.
As an RPG, Hogwarts Legacy will let you choose your character, your house, make potions, learn new skills and explore the world freely. You can make your own decisions and pick your own sides. Hogwarts Legacy is coming in 2022 for Playstation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC.
