1) Far Cry 6
Well, this has to be one of the most anticipated games of 2021. Right there in top 3 or top 5. Far Cry franchise has been a great hit from the first installment itself. The reveal trailer has already got so many hits because of Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito. One of the most popular villains of the TV industry is the anti-protagonist of this game.
You’ll play as a freedom fighter attempting to take him down, and if the series’ history is any indication, we should see an exciting open-world adventure full of unpredictable elements and beautiful sights. If you have played any of the Far Cry games, you will know that the plot is always the same with different locations and different villains. And obviously, with different missions and slightly better graphics.
The release date is still not set but it will arrive in 2021. Pre-order has already begun on Ubisoft’s site and app. This game will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, PC.
2) Halo Infinite
How can a HALO game not be in the list of most anticipated games. It is one of the most popular and major fps titles out there. HALO Infinite was supposed to launch in 2020 itself but due to some issue regarding the graphics, Microsoft and 343 industries decided to polish the game a bit more and push the game to 2021.
Well, Halo Infinite is rumored to be set in 2560, right after the events of Halo 5. It is set to be a continuation of Master Chief’s story and will be taking place on Zeta Halo, also known as Installation 07.
The release date of this game is not set yet. It will be available on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC.
Deathloop is an action-adventure fps game which is published by Bethseda Softworks. This game is expected to have a unique element of twist because of their developers. Arkane Studios are the ones who have developed this game. Arkane have already created two unique fps games named Dishonered and Prey. So, fans are expecting something different.
According to the game developers, Deathloop is “a murder puzzle where you play an assassin trapped in a time loop.” Players wake up on an island called Black Reef every day. The characters and NPCs all repeat their actions daily, and it’s up to the player to kill numerous targets in the most efficient way possible, before the day is over. When the day ends, the time loop starts over and everyone comes back to life. So quite a unique plot here.
Deathloop has a release date of 21st May 2021. This game will launch on PS5 and PC.
4) Resident Evil Village
Resident Evil franchise is coming up with another horror-survival game this year. And, it is one of the most anticipated games this year. It will be the eighth game under the Resident Evil title. If you don’t know what happens in a Resident Evil game, let me tell you. You start somewhere stranded as a single survivor and you have to find your way through different levels, find keys and objects which will lead you next clues which will eventually lead you to the final boss.
The storyline begins with Ethan Winters and his wife Mia living peacefully in a new location, free from their past nightmares. Just as they are building their new life together, tragedy befalls them once again. When BSAA captain Chris Redfield attacks their home, Ethan must once again head into hell to get his kidnapped daughter back. You will understand the plot if you have played Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. So we would recommend you to play it first.
The launch date is set to 7th May 2021 and will be launched on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X|S and PC.
5) Back 4 Blood
Back 4 Blood is a co-op zombie shooter and multiplayer survival horror game developed by Turtle Rock Studios and published by Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment. All the gamers are assuming this game as Left 4 Dead 3 instead of Back 4 Blood because of similar game graphics and the concept. Left 4 Dead 2 was launched in 2009 and it was a huge hit. So you can imagine how desperate fans would be for the next version.
This game is set to launch on 18th June 2021 on PS5, Xbox Seriex S/X, PC, PS4 Xbox One.
6) Gotham Knights
Batman games have really been great down the years and hence every other Batman game is anticipated by the fans. Gotham Knights will be the latest release. Gotham Knights looks a fair bit like the previous Arkham games in style, but is said to be a standalone game with role-playing elements and both solo and two-player co-op action.
If we talk about the plot, then the biggest aspect is that there is no Batman. Yes, you heard it right. Batman is dead and Gotham is under deep trouble. It’s up to Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing, and Red Hood – to renew the fight in his absence.
Gotham Knights has not been given a release date yet. It will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, PC.
7) Forza Motorsport
Microsoft has really raised the bar in racing game graphics with their Forza Series. Forza Horizon 4 was one of the best racing games ever on PC and hence the anticipation of Forza Motorsport is quite high. Forza Motorsport won’t be as versatile as Forza Horizon but it will surely match or might be better in terms of graphics and gameplay.
No date has been confirmed, but we strongly suspect that it will be a holiday 2021 rollout. It will be available on Xbox Series X/S and PC.
Sifu is a brand-new game which was revealed in Sony’s State of Play stream in February. It is a martial-arts, one one one combat game with a storyline indeed. There is an interesting feature in this game about the protagonist. Each “death” not only ages him, but apparently makes him wiser, making him a bit more capable in combat.
Sifu was very warmly welcomed by all the gamers and fans of martial-arts/combat games. The release date has not been set yet and it is expected to launch on PS5,PS4 and PC.
