A whole lot of games are to be released on all platforms, especially the Xbox since Microsoft just recently bought the exclusive game studio Bethesda, Nerdvoid has put together a list of 10 upcoming AAA games coming this 2021 for all platforms. get ready.
1. Deathloop on PC and PS5
From the studio that brought us Dishonored and Prey, Arkane Studios is bringing out a new IP with lots of time-bending twists. They wowed us with their first reveal in last year’s E3, and now we’re even more intrigued with their newest launch date trailer. This first person shooter is all about two assassins locked in a vicious, never-ending cycle. One fighting to protect it, and the other to break it. It may be a concept we’ve seen countless times before, there is a certain freshness to it. The world is lush with a filmic, steampunk atmosphere, and the combat feels fast and dynamic.
2. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
For the uninitiated, this might not have the template you’d expect from a triple A game. But this is a definitive classic that’s only made better with the features of the PlayStation 5. From the same studio that brought us Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Insomniac Games has dedicated their skills to modernizing the adventures of the famous duo. From their recent gameplay demos, it’s exactly as lively and dynamic as you’d expect from an Insomniac title.
3. Far Cry 6 on all platform, yes including stadia
The iconic and most hyped series has a brand new villain for the books. In this entry, Giancarlo Esposito plays the role of Anton Castilllo, the calculating dictator to a country simmering with rage. That country is Yara, a fictional nation, whose capital, Esperanza, will be one of the first urban settings in the series, and also the biggest. In it, we get to roam around as Dani Rojas, either as male or female, who leads the uprising using guerilla tactics and an array of weapons. It’s an interesting topic to explore, and it seems to show the opposing sides of the revolutionary coin.
4. Horizon: Forbidden West on PS4 and PS5
Just like many games next year, Forbidden West will be one of many games that will usher their franchise to the next-gen and of course a massive jump in visuals will be expected, but it does seem that this new entry will deliver in giving us a whole load of things to look at. Offering a whole new frontier to explore, the Forbidden West title refers to stretches from Utah to the Pacific Ocean. In between Aloy’s quest to find the source of a plague that kills everything it touches, we’ll see vast expanses of beautiful sand dunes, deserts, oceans, and more. And With the PS5’s power, the immersion will be at an all new level of high. there is no release date yet, but it’s expected to drop this year.
5. Hogwarts Legacy on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5, and Xbox Series X
The most controversial announcement yet, It feels like the world got back some of its magic with the announcement of this new game from the beloved series. We only have an announcement trailer so far, but it’s done enough to tickle our imaginations about what’s to come. An open world experience, it invites us to insert ourselves into Hogwarts’ familiar halls and moving staircases. Set in the 1800s, we won’t be seeing Harry Potter and the original gang. But, playing as a student with unique ancient powers, we get to be the child wonder whose decisions change the fate of the world. It’s set to release on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and next-gen consoles in 2021.
6. Halo Infinite on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X
What should have been a launch title for the new Xbox Series X. While the game play from their last presentation looked exciting, it just didn’t have quite the next-gen punch that we expected. Since then, changes have been made within the development team, with some creators and executives leaving the project. we still don’t know what exactly it means for the game though, but we still hope this year there will be word out, we’ll be sure to update you guys.
7. Gotham Knights on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5, and Xbox Series X
For a city tied so closely to the caped crusader, WB is going in a new direction in this upcoming open world adventure. Instead of another jaunt as THE Dark Knight, this game explores a story where Batman is dead and a new breed of heroes is needed to fill his place. In this case, it’s up to Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin. As an open world game, it will offer five boroughs to patrol over and explore, giving us plenty of opportunities to play around with each character. Coming from developers who created Assassin’s Creed: Origins, Gotham Knights will also be injecting RPG elements into a series more at ease with Rocksteady’s action-adventure formula. Each hero will act as a certain class, and will be customizable with crafted weapons. this game was initially set for 2021, but new update says the game will be delayed till 2022, *sigh* .
8. Resident Evil Village on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X
Capcom has a new game in store for fans of their survival horror series. After the kind of disappointing release of the Resident Evil 3 remake, it will be great to see what fresh innovations they’re planning for their first next-generation entry. Providing the next chapter in Ethan’s story, it seems more horrors await him in a new environment that’s both beautiful and terrifying. Years after the events of RE 7, Ethan’s return to a peaceful life is disturbed by the arrival of the legendary character, Chris Redfield. this game Initial release date: 7 May 2021, so that’s close, get your fingers ready.
9. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 on PC and Xbox Series X
On the other side of the console battle, Microsoft presents the long awaited sequel to GSC Game Worlds’ FPS survival. First announced just a year after the Call of Pripyat in 2010, the road to its release has been long, and we’re glad we get to see it with the eye-popping visuals of the next-gen console. What we know so far is it’s going to be an open world game, with a hub that’s wrapped in the dead grey of the nuclear zone. Even so, made on the Unreal Engine 4, their trailers so far have been absolutely mesmerizing, inviting us to wonder what horrific, mutated creatures and anomalies are in store for us. this game is expected to be around 2021
10. God of War: Ragnarok
God of War! , so much people are expecting this game, We may only have a teaser trailer,but it’s still one of the biggest announcements for 2020. After the overwhelming success of 2018’s God of War–the first in a long while–it’s not surprising that people want more. And it’s a relief that we’re getting it this soon. The first game was a showcase of not just the power of the PlayStation 4, but also the outpour of talent from its developers. It not only added a new layer for Kratos with the introduction of Atreus, but it was also a marvel in terms of gameplay and graphics. Now, the God of War has more on the line as Ragnarok nears. And, we get to witness it with the breathtaking power of the PlayStation 5, unfortunately, the developers and publishers are really holding back with those updates, we don’t have any scoop yet about the game but we are still expecting it 2021, we wrote an article on it
