If 2020 was a great year for video games, 2021 will be just as awesome. We’re breaking down 10 of the games we’re most looking forward to in 2021.
Video games were our salvation in 2020 as we all spent significant amounts of time in our homes, apartments, condominiums, or indoors. We had a ton of fantastic games coming out all year round to keep us entertained.
And the great video games don’t stop in 2020 because the 2021 plan is as full as 2020. With the release of the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, the quantity and quality will be top notch. And exciting!
Here are our ten games we can’t wait to see in 2021, in no particular order because we’re just so excited.
Ratchet and clink: ripped apart
Ratchet and clink: ripped apart was one of the highlights of the PlayStation 5 showcase, solely for loading time. It’s still incredibly impressive to just watch the video above and see absolutely no lag between worlds
Of course, loading times aren’t the only reason we’re looking forward to it Ratchet and clamp. It’s also a new game in the series! Their last release was in 2016 so it will be a nice return to these characters. Not much is known about the conspiracy other than that you will traverse alternate realities to stop the villain from destroying the multiverse.
Ripped apart is expected to be released sometime in the first quarter of 2021.
The gameplay reveal for this game this summer left the majority of fans and critics disappointed with the way the graphics were rendered, especially after what the PlayStation 5 storefront showed. It wasn’t long before the Holiday 2020 game was delayed to the second half of 2021. And with how Cyberpunk 2077 went, that was definitely a smart move.
Halo Infinite will effect the return of the Master Chief and will be the third chapter in the Reclaimer saga as he tries to save humanity. From what we’ve seen so far, it also looks like The Banished are the enemies in the game. We are only happy when a developer takes the time to do something and actually listens to feedback.
Square Enix does very well with RPG games and their next outing (in collaboration with Polish developer People Can Fly) is on Outrider, a third-person shooter with RPG elements. The efforts of mankind to colonize the extraterrestrial planet Enoch (no relation to the SHIELD agents Character) went south when an energy storm shot across the country.
Of course, this storm granted superpowers to Enoch’s inhabitants and the colonists. You can choose from four different classes for your character and the variety of weapons is overwhelming. Plus, it sounds like it’s going to be a hell of a good time using skill trees and having enemies that are both human and crazy monsters. We just have to see if they make a strong story to get all the action in.
Outrider is currently published on February 2, 2021.
Horizon forbidden west
Since Horizon Zero Dawn came out in 2017, fans are campaigning for a sequel, and Sony gave a first glimpse of their PlayStation 5 storefront.
The sequel takes Aloy to the arcane limits of her post-apocalyptic world to find the source of a plague that destroys everything that infects them. The world building in the first horizon was wonderful and beautiful, and the sequel looks like it will continue in the same way. We will see many different ecosystems, and I can only imagine the different skills and weapons the game will give us.
And the fact that Ashly Burch seems to be loving Coming up with Aloy makes us all the more excited to see where this game is taking us. Everything Ashly Burch does makes us happy.
Horizon forbidden west should come out in the second half of 2021.
Little nightmares 2
If you haven’t played Little nightmares You miss out on about six hours of tense and scary gameplay.
Little nightmares 2 starts where the first ended, and Six escapes the gulp. Instead of exploring and exiting the Maw, you’ll work with a second character named Mono and try to navigate the pale city. It looks like the world is more obsessed with television than the food-obsessed monstrosities on the Maw.
But that doesn’t make it any less scary. And if you played any of the DLCs on the first video game, you will recognize some characters that will show up. Tarsier Studios came out saying that the sequel is also longer than the first. We’re excited to see how crazy things get.
Little nightmares 2 Releases on February 11, 2021.
NieR: Replicant Ver. 1.22474487139
Nier replicant didn’t come out until 2010 in Japan and was an alternate version of the original Never Game. And not to be confused with the sequel NieR: machines that came out in 2017.
NieR: Replicant Ver. 1.22 … is a revised version of the alternative Japan game from 2010. Humanity is critically endangered and it is up to NieR to help save human life. You are trying to find a cure for the mysterious disease that has haunted humanity and you are also trying to find out where all these crazy machines came from.
It also seems like the combat has been completely redesigned from the original game. And if it is similar to the fight Vending machinesI’ll be incredibly happy because this combat system was a hell of a lot of fun.
NieR Replicant Ver. 1.22 … will be released on April 23, 2021.
I can not waiting for this game. Bethesda’s next game is looking so goodand we really only saw the trailer from the PlayStation 5 showcase this summer.
In Deathloop you play Colt, an assassin who is stuck in a time warp on Blackreef. You must murder eight targets across the island before midnight. If you let even one of them live, the time warp will start over. If you die before taking out all eight targets, the time warp will start over.
But don’t worry, there is an agent supposed to turn you off to protect the time warp. If you’re playing the multiplayer part of the game, you can even play as her. It looks creative and exciting and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.
Death loop Releases on May 21, 2021.
God of War: Ragnarok
Technically, I don’t think that it actually has a name, but rather the tag title card from Ragnarok is coming on the PlayStation 5 reveal reveal people making assumptions.
Regardless of this, the continuation of 2018 God of War is eagerly awaited for gamers. We know pretty much nothing about this game. The assumption is that we will see the beginning of Ragnarok in the universe, which is the great event that will kill and usher many Norse gods at the end of days. Sounds good!
Right now it’s slated to come out in 2021, but since nothing is revealed I wouldn’t be surprised if this is delayed until 2022.
We don’t know much about it Hogwarts Legacy barely, but what we know sounds like everything a Harry Potter Fan has been looking in a video game.
In the 1800s, you can choose your Hogwarts student character and the house you want to join. You will take classes and explore Hogwarts and Hogsmeade open worldThat said, if all you want to do is hike and explore the Forbidden Forest, you definitely can. You may just want to take enough classes so that you have a few spells ready.
There is no official release date for the game yet. We just know that it will be sometime in 2021.
This one looks just adorable. The PlayStation 5 storefront gave us a lot to marvel at, but some of the best Twitter reactions have been about that Cat carries the backpack.
Not much is known about this game. You play as a cat in a robot-occupied city and we can only assume that it is an exploration game. Will you solve riddles Will you run into other cats carrying backpacks? Are there actually people? Will the city mysteriously run out of catnip?
I have no idea but I’m ready to play and find out. Strays will be released sometime in 2021.
