New games to get on a thrilling ride in 2021

The beginning of 2021 was a slow start for gamers. Pandemic hit every industry pretty hard. But we have so much to look forward to in the approaching year. However, the slow start converged everyone’s attention to Coffee Stain Studios’ Valheim, developed by Swedish Iron Gate AB. It was released in February 2021 for Linux and Windows.

Entertainment Software Association’s Electronic Entertainment Experience is held annually, where gaming publishers and developers showcase their new products. The latest E3 Expo was held virtually from 12 to 15 June 2021. Several companies announced their upcoming games.

These brand-new games can also be played on PlayStation and Xbox Series X. This adds to the excitement as developers add some new features when they launch a game. Covid-19 caused a worldwide lockdown. As a result, developers had to set up their workstations remotely.

If everything got delayed, we got our share of the pie but with extra nuts and crunch. Let us see which developer declared the best of the games. Because amateur players have to find out the right cheat code like Apex Legends, PUBG, and overwatch hacks for better experience.

In the single-player game, other members of the team: Gamora, Groot, Drax and Rocket, are played by AI. But Star-Lord can command them during a fight. The inclusion of the Dialogue Tree makes the game exciting as a player can control the outcomes of a mission through it.

Xbox Game Studios- Age of Empire IV

This real-time strategy game is developed by the Canadian Game developer Relic Entertainment. It is an exclusive game for Windows and Xbox. The game allows gamers to collect resources, build cities, and create armies to defeat their enemies.

Gearbox Software: Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands

It is a multiplayer game independent of Borderlands, but the game’s backdrop is based on Borderlands. The game is set after Tiny Tina’s assault on the Dragon Keep from Borderlands 2. Four players would be able to play at a time. The players can develop the strength of their weapons and do more and more loot. The game focuses heavily on the use of magic and melee weapons. Surprisingly, the developers also revealed that the game has been in the development stage for ten years. The game would be released in early 2022 on Windows, PlayStation and Xbox Series.

Bethesda Software- Redfall

Arkane Studios have developed one hell of a game this time, folks. This action-packed, adventurous game would be released on Windows and Xbox series. It is set in an open-world setting like Grand Theft Auto II. The game can be played on first-person mode and multiplayer mode.

The game is set in Redfall, Massachusetts, which has been isolated from the rest of the world due to a vampire attack. A failed experiment released vampires on the city, and players have to combat vampires and humans to survive. The player can choose from four survivors, each one of them with unique abilities. Devinder Crousley is a Cryptozoologist and scientist. Layla Ellison is telekinetic who can influence people like Jean Grey of X-Men. A combat engineer named Demi De Las Rosa can come up with new designs and improvisation for existing weapons. Jacob Bayer is the last survivor who was born with a supernatural ability to never missing a target.

Bethesda Software- Deathloop

Deathloop is another upcoming video game by Arkae Studios which take you on a journey filled with time travel. Unlike another time loop game- The Legend of Zelda: Major’s Mask, the game gives players more time to complete the task.

The protagonist, Colt, wakes on an enchanted island called Blackreef. He has to take out eight targets before a time loop ends in the mid-night. The island was once an army base, and the time loop is the result of one of its experiments gone wrong. Residents start a party every day that ends and then starts again. They do not remember anything from the previous time loop. Colt remembers everything and learns everything about the partygoers. It helps him take out the targets before midnight because he has to start everything from the beginning if he fails. The time loop starts again at midnight.

Gaming companies and developers have released some exciting and adventurous games. Nintendo announced most of the new games and updates of the existing games with more than 28 announcements that Microsoft and Bethesda made. Now, only time will tell whether these games would be able to impress the gamers or not.
