We don’t need a reason to pick some top anticipated video games to get entertained and make ourselves happy. As the list of best anticipated video games has been going on for ages. The list won’t end in 2021.
With the coming up of PlayStation 5 and Xbox series X/S in 2020, many new games are on the edge. The game is going pretty strong. Although some of us must be expecting that we’d be playing some of the games now, unfortunately, they are not here. So we expect a bundle of good games to be released in late January or the list will be increasing as the year will pass.
There will be the return of some beloved franchise and a bunch of fresh fares will be there for all the people who love gaming.
Here’s the list of all the anticipated video games of 2021 that most of us will surely love to play. But let me tell you this list will expand with time as the year will pass. Many new game releases and new titles will be announced.
Top Anticipated Video Games Of 2021
Horizon Forbidden West
It can be played on Playstation 4 as well as PlayStation 5. Horizon zero dawn was one of the best exclusive games on the PlayStation 4. It is one of the most brilliant and stunning anticipated video games that can’t be matched on Xbox or anywhere else. It is one of the serious vitrines powered for PlayStation 4 pro.
This horizon forbidden west will surely beat this on PlayStation 5 making a pristine land full of robotic beasts with glaring sights. This is likely to come in the 3rd quarter of 2021. It is enough to make the target.
God of War- Ragnarok
God of War- Ragnarok can be played on Playstation 5. Let’s talk about the intense Sony’s God of War that can be played on Playstation 4 exclusively. It was one of the finest best games for the generation and again it’s coming back in 2021 that can be played on PlayStation 5.
It is due to be announced in 2021. Although we are not sure whether the official name of the game will be God of War- Ragnarok but the teaser gives a little hint about it and suggests that it will be based on Norse mythological events. It is one of the intense adventures and most anticipated video games that will lead to the end of the day. One more thing is not clear whether it will work on Playstation 4, unlike Horizon Forbidden West that has to be confirmed for both.
This games stands second in the list of the best anticipated video games.
It can be played on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. even though we have already played halo infinite and it was supposed to be the biggest Xbox series X/S launch game. The trailer is showing that it will improve some of the features and will work on the shooter sequel in this part. Microsoft and a total of 343 Industries have decided to push this to 2021.
It is planned to be released in 2021 autumn. Although Halo 5 was a disillusionment, we can suppose that this time Microsoft will work hard on it and don’t rush it to make a flagging series in 2021. We can hopefully wait for it to get rewarded with Xbox this year.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
It can only be played on Playstation 5. Since the Ratchet & Clank game and the Rift Apart usually don’t differ much from the usual series formula. The last Ratchet & Clank was a remake. We can expect some great twists and thrills that Playstation 5 will unlock.
The SSD system storage makes it a ceremonial break, that enables the heroic hop between the worlds of the fly. This is one of the most anticipated video games. Apart from that it just looks like a cartoonish quest and fun with some dreamy visuals and ultimate weapons. It is expected to come in the first quarter or the second quarter of 2021.
It can be played on Playstation 5 or PC. although Arkane’s and Prey’s works have made us clear that they don’t like to work on typical shooters and Deathloop is coming to put an exclamation mark on that. It’s likely to come up with the elements of the previous games but this time with a new demeanor.
It works with a loop and your assassin will keep repeating unless you complete your eight targets. There’s also one rival assassin waiting for you to spoil your plan on the island. But the great thing is you can control her and can play as a spoiler by any other random online player. The expected date of arrival of this one of the anticipated video games is 21 May.
It can be played on Playstation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Reportedly Batman is dead but Gotham City is further sinking into a cesspit of crime and perversion. Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing, and Red Hood will have to fight in his absence. The most anticipated video games of the season.
It looks like a previous Arkham game. Gotham Knights are said to be standalone with solo as well as two-player coaction. It has role elements for both. WB Games Montreal already made the Batman: Arkham Origins but we are excited to see the Gotham Knights after seeing the dexterous trailer.
Far Cry 6
It can be played on Playstation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. We already know Giancarlo Esposito plays every role smoothly talking about breaking bad or any show or movie he appears in. It is well expected from Far Cry 6 that he’ll do the same as an authoritarian leader in a fictional Caribbean island nation.
You’ll have to play as a freedom fighter attempting to take him down. We will surely see an unpredictable element and a beautiful vision of the open adventure of the anticipated video games in this. Ubisoft always surprises us with some meaningful storyline in the actual game and always disappoint us with some scrappy trailers.
Resident Evil Village
Resident Evil Village can be played on Playstation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. After the delivery of Resident Evil 7 in 2017. Capcom’s horror survival keeps forgo and keeps shrugging off its delivery to shift its gears to a first-person view and support.
There’s a VIII in Resident Evil Village so it will continue the theme and will work the same character to return as a first horror person. There’s a doubt whether we get a VR this time or not in the eerie village, we’ll get to know it after we’ll experience it.
Back 4 Blood
Back 4 Blood can be played on Playstation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PC, Xbox One. This is officially Left 4 Dead 3 and Turtle Rock Studios took it as a project for them after Valve left this franchise about a decade ago.
It looks a bit fun and feverish as per the sources. It will have a four-player co-op action against zombie shamblers. Its early impressions are very positive so this will come as fun this summer. The expected date of arrival of one of the top anticipated video games is 22 June.
Gran Turismo 7
It can only be played on Playstation 5. If you’ve got a new PlayStation 5 this season then you should also get one new great game Gran Turismo 7 to show off. Although it didn’t come up with the launch of PlayStation 5 it will make a great come in 2021 to show us some great fast cards having insane details.
In addition to this, it will deliver a highly precise racing simulation. It looks like Gran Turismo 7 is also promising like a world map campaign interface that will give you a lot to do. Although Gran Turismo had taken censure in the past and we are excited to check whether they can create the old magic again in this fresher feeling rival or not. It is expected to come in the first quarter or the second quarter of 2021.
The platforms have not been disclosed yet that will offer this game. We expected to see this Overwatch 2 in 2020 but due to the impact of the pandemic, they did not rush to its sequel.
Overwatch 2 looks to re-energize that hero shooter with a brilliant story mission, with some new heroes, and with plenty of new content. We don’t have to wait much for this in 2021 hopefully for its release.
Kena: Bridge of Spirits
Kena: Bridge of Spirits can be played on Playstation 5, Playstation 4, and PC. This is the first game to make us say Wow that can be played on Playstation 5. It was planned as a launch title to land earlier but it slipped into 2021. We can accept this as many huge teams launched not in a good state so they should take their time to start this studio.
This Kena: Bridge of Spirits looks similar to Zelda’s homage with studio Ghibli influencing it with a mix along with a lot of charm. Fingers crossed to see whether it will come forward as it looks. Kena: Bridge of Spirits is expected to come in the first quarter of 2021.
Hogwarts Legacy can be played on Playstation 5, Xbox series X/S, Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. We will finally get the Harry: Wizarding World adventure in 2021. After a lot of ordinary movies and mobile spinoffs, we will finally get something adventurous of the late 1800s.
It is a role-playing quest in which you will explore locations from films and books from Hogwarts. It will allow you to attend classes, fly around on beasts and broomstick, learn spells, and a lot more. Let hope for the best from Warner Bros. and Avalanche as they have already given many anticipated video games.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury
It can be played on Nintendo Switch. It will be Nintendo’s first game in 2021. It will not be exciting for Wii U port but this Super Mario 3D World will surely be amazing. So if you have not played the last round till you will not be able to switch to this in February 2021.
You can play this with up to four players. This is just a vibrant platform to take a different perspective of different 3D Mario Games and has many power-ups. It will have a new switch version of adding Bowser’s Fury expansion. This Super Mario 3D World is expected to come on 12 February.
Hitman 3 can be played on Playstation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC, and a Switch. The Assassination trilogy world comes close with Hitman 3, Agent 47 that are returning to murderous missions in Dartmoor, Dubai, Chongqing, and many others. It will have a serious tone this time but there will be shenanigans too when you will get your precise kills and plot them.
It will be a single-player game and will have Playstation VR support on pLyastaion4 and playstation5. Fans of the first two games will be able to import their maps and progress. Hitman 3 is expected to come on 20 January
