Now, this may seem a bit premature since next gen consoles literally just launched (depending on your territory) but we want to look ahead and what gamers can look forward to in 2021. After all, I can’t be the only one who’s ready for 2020 to be over as soon as possible. Well, with that in mind, here’s the top 5 games coming out in 2021 for those shiny new consoles.
2020 has been a tough year for just about everybody. Looking at the gaming industry specifically, we’ve seen plenty of delays caused by the switch to working from home. One of the biggest casualties was Microsoft’s planned Series X launch exclusive, Halo Infinite. The latest instalment to the fan-favourite franchise is now scheduled for release in 2021. If you are unable to wait until 2021 for something to play, how about this live online casino that is ready now and not for 2021!
When all hope is lost and humanity’s fate hangs in the balance, the Master Chief is ready to confront the most ruthless foe he’s ever faced. Begin anew and step inside the armor of humanity’s greatest hero to experience an epic adventure and finally explore the scale of the Halo ring itself.
Horizon Forbidden West
Horizon Forbidden West is a direct sequel to the breakout new IP of the last generation, Horizon Zero Dawn. In a PS5 launch trailer, it was confirmed that Forbidden West is slated for a release in the second half of 2021, most likely the Fall season. Horizon Forbidden West continues Aloy’s story as she moves west to a far-future America to brave a majestic, but dangerous frontier where she’ll face awe-inspiring machines and mysterious new threats.
Resident Evil Village
Without a doubt one of my most anticipated titles for 2021, especially after the amazing Resident Evil 7, is Resident Evil Village. he next generation of survival horror rises in the form of Resident Evil Village, the eighth major entry in the Resident Evil series.
Years after the tragic events of Resident Evil 7 biohazard, Ethan Winters has started over with his wife Mia, finally living in peace and putting the past behind them. However, Chris Redfield, the legendary hero from previous Resident Evil games, suddenly disrupts their life, throwing a devastated Ethan into a new and twisted nightmare in search of answers.
As a self-confessed Harry Potter fan, I was really excited when leaked footage of a Harry Potter RPG emerged some years ago. Though, my excitement faded as the years went by, worried that the project might’ve been scrapped. Well, I was right to be excited this year when Hogwarts Legacy was finally announced.
Hogwarts Legacy is an open-world, single-player, action role-playing video game (RPG) set in the 1800s wizarding world. Players will experience life as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry like never before, as they live the unwritten and embark on a dangerous journey to uncover a hidden truth of the wizarding world.
Far Cry 6
The fact that Giancarlo Esposito stars as the antagonist in the latest Far Cry game should be enough to have anyone hyped. Far Cry 6 thrusts players into the adrenaline-filled world of a modern-day guerrilla revolution. As dictator of Yara, Antón Castillo is intent on restoring his nation back to its former glory by any means, with his son, Diego, dutifully at his side. Become a guerrilla fighter and burn their regime to the ground.
Fight against Anton’s troops in the largest Far Cry playground to date across jungles, beaches and Esperanza the capital city of Yara. Employ makeshift weapons, vehicles, and Amigos, the new Fangs for Hire to burn the tyrannical regime to the ground.
