If you’ve been waiting to jump into a new video game, it’s probably safe to say that it’s been quite some time since the last new release. While many publishers have backed off from the video game industry, there has never been a better time for new releases. There are hundreds of new games in development right now, and many of them will be released in 2021. If you’re looking for a new game to play, this may be the year for you to find it.
New games in 2021 are all going to be coming to the Xbox and PlayStation platforms. While Nintendo’s system continues to lose market share, there are still plenty of other options available. The biggest new games for 2021 are also coming to the PS3 and Xbox series X, meaning that developers now have even more power with which to work. The PC versions are probably going to benefit as well, though there are still rumors circulating about whether or not this will be true. It will be interesting to see how this all shakes out over the next few months.
Some of the big upcoming new games for 2021 are a turn-based, RPG style game called Fall Of Rome, an action RPG title called Arma: Age of Empire, and a futuristic open-world game called Starcactus. Fall of Rome looks to be a pretty good turn-based tactical game where you’ll have to do battle on the ground as you fight your way through the crumbling Roman Empire. The sci-fi theme is a nice touch, and the game seems to have a strong storyline as well, featuring a war between the Romans and the barbarian tribes along the border. A few other possible elements for this game include a procedural generation system, destructible scenery, and online chat.
Another upcoming release is in the genre of an RTS or massively multi-player RPG. This one is called Arma: Conquer The North. Arma: Conquer The North will be on the Nintendo Wii platform, where you can also play other Wii players and connect with people all over the world. It is being developed by the makers of the genre-famous Halo 3: Reach, and promises a high degree of realism, as well as plenty of multiplayer options. You will be playing as both a Marine soldier and a combat drone in this game, and there are plans for lots of different single and multi-player modes as well. Some other ideas for this game includes real-time strategy battles with up to four players, a PvE campaign including a number of randomly generated maps, and the ability to use a destructible building to turn the tide of battle.
One other game that should excite gamers is the long-awaited new game highlights 2021. March of the Iron Man is being developed by Marvelous Games, the maker of the popular Xbox series of games, including the successful Modern Warfare series. The Iron Man game is being published by Electronic Arts, who also own the rights to the Iron Man brand. This new game will feature an improved version of the famous viral video game series, and will feature remade versions of some of the earliest Iron Man levels. This is a chance for the team at Electronic Arts to build on the success of the last games in the series, and hopefully create a truly superior game.
Finally, no game is complete without trailers, and we have some more good news for gamers out there. The official PlayStation 2 video game and sequel to Sam and Max: The Devil’s fist will have a reveal trailer, before it’s officially released on the PlayStation 2 marketplace. No release date has been given for the game yet, but we expect it to come out early 2021. There are plenty more games in the pipeline for this console, so look forward to many more exciting trailers for the 2021 calendar year! Until then, happy gaming!
