God of War Ragnarok

Ragnarok will be the ninth instalment in the God of War series of games. During this game, we will get an expansion of the Norse realm, which was introduced in the previous instalment. The game will follow Kratos and his son (Atreus), who travelled from the Greek mythological realm to the Norse realm, where Odin rules supreme. They will be stuck inside of the impending Ragnarok, which will mark the end of days for the Norse Gods. Ragnarok was set into motion after the events of the last game.

Far Cry 6

Far Cry 6 will be set inside of the Caribbean island of Yara (fictional location), with players in control of a soldier trying to topple the regime of “El Presidente” Antón Castillo, a fascist dictator. Just like any other game in the series, it will require for players to utilise makeshift weapons, drive around in vehicles, making allegiances and trying to take over control of areas and freeing them from under the dictator’s control. This time along, players will also be able to hire soldiers via the ‘Fangs for Hire’ (guns for hire) system.

Horizon Forbidden West

Horizon Forbidden West is a game that people have been waiting for since the company showcased its gameplay footage at the PS5 reveal. It is the successor to the popular Horizon Zero Dawn, and it will take forward the tale of Aloy, who is trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. With this iteration, the developers have added an underwater exploration aspect. The game is a PlayStation exlusive and will only be available for the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5.

Gotham Knights

Gotham Knights incorporates the whole bat family, who is trying to investigate the apparent death of the dark knight. The story will follow Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl and Red Hood fighting with Gotham’s criminals like the Court of Owls, in an open-world Gotham City. The game will be released for Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | Series S. Also another point to note, apart from Batman, Commissioner Gordon is also dead.

Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil is one of the most popular game series in the horror genre. And in 2021 we will get its eighth instalment, Village. The game will continue the story of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Ethan will be back to take us through a new chain of events that go horrible in a mysterious village. It will be made available on Windows, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | Series S.

Gran Turismo 7

The Gran Turismo series is one of the biggest racing franchise for the Sony PlayStation, and in its eighth instalment, we will get a new single-player campaign and a comeback of the GT simulation mode. We will also get to see a number of new traditional racing tracks and vehicles, along with a new multiplayer mode. If you have played earlier instalments then you will also get to see some iconic features from the earlier days. The game will be made available on the Sony Play Station 5 in June.

Hitman 3

With Hitman 3, IO Interactive will finally close the World of Assassination series, which started back in 2016. Once again you will have to employ stealth to your gaming strategy for the game in the shoes of Agent 47. You can also approach the game with a blazing guns strategy, but that would increase the difficulty. The game will be made available for Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | Series S, Stadia, and Nintendo Switch.

Hogwarts Legacy

For all of you Harry Potter fans, a new Hogwarts game is going to launch this year for Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | Series S.
