(AfroGamers.com) The year 2021 will continue to bring a mix of games, some great old titles that may have been forgotten and others that are still quite new. Add to the mix a new console and you have a completely different time for gaming. A few of the games on this list are sequels, but some others just happen to be a remake or completely new. The type of game you like will depend on the type of games you enjoy. Some are fast and furious, while others are a little slower; some are quiet titles, while others have quite a bit of action.

The year 2021 will see many video games available for purchase on all gaming platforms that exist today and currently do. However, there will be a very large number of new titles available for purchase that have not even been released yet. We have taken this year to create a list of the top 10 upcoming video games that we think you should look forward to in 2021.

  1. Age of Empires IV:

    There are many long-standing video game titles that would be great for a remake, such as Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri or Total Annihilation. However, some other titles should have sequels made for them. Age of Empires is one of these titles. It was released in 1997 and the last title in the series was the Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties, back in 2005. Since that release, there have been three expansions for the title which include The WarChiefs, The Asian Dynasties, and The Forgotten.

We think that you will agree that the folks at Microsoft need to release Age of Empires IV by 2021 as there are many people who want to play a new game from this series.

  1. Battlefield 2042:

    In 2021, Electronic Arts will be releasing the latest in the Battlefield series of video games. The title has been in development and planned for a release for quite some time now. It is scheduled for release on a number of gaming platforms, including the Xbox One and PS4.

The idea behind Battlefield 2042 is that it takes place in 2042 where advanced warfare robots are fighting against humans. It is one of those games where you are on one side or the other as they battle it out to determine who gets to control the world. We would love to play this game as there will be two different types of soldiers that we can choose from when we begin our adventure in this futuristic world.

  1. Far Cry 6:

    It is a fact that Far Cry 5 was released in 2018 and it only took three years to release the latest in this long-standing series. It is being developed and published by Ubisoft for the Xbox One, PS4, and Microsoft Windows.

Another interesting fact is that they are taking us to Yara, a fictional Caribbean island, and adding some new stuff to it. We can’t wait to get our hands on this game; we think it’s going to be great! We have added it to our list of upcoming video games we can’t wait to play in 2021!

  1. Forza Horizon 5:

    If you are a fan of racing games then the Forza Horizon series will be for you. The latest title in the series was released in 2018, taking us to the open world of Great Britain. It was developed and published by Playground Games for Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.

The idea behind this game is that players have to compete against each other using a number of different vehicles that they must earn throughout the game. There are also their own story-driven quests to complete and we think it’s going to be awesome!

  1. Halo Infinite:

    We all know the story behind the Halo series. A war between humans and aliens has been going on for years with events such as the discovery of the Halo ring turning humans against the Covenant.

We have been playing games from the series for years now and we are pretty sure we can play Halo Infinite in 2021. It will be released on both the Xbox One and Microsoft Windows, but unfortunately, no release date has been announced so far. We are hoping that it will be released in 2021 at least!

  1. Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD:

    The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was released in 2011 as part of the classic Wii series. It has been updated with HD graphics and will be released for the Nintendo Switch in 2021.

We all loved the original game, so we are definitely looking forward to playing this one again! A number of other games in the series have emerged over the years due to player demand, but we are finally getting a release for the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD game.

  1. Mario Golf Super Rush:

    This is one of the most fun multiplayer games that we have to offer! Just like some of the other Mario party games, this one is a lot of fun for players of all ages. Play multiplayer mode and try to beat out your opponents and prove who is the best at golf! Graphics, sound effects, cut scenes, and gameplay are all in this one! Mario Golf games have become cult classic media since they first debuted so we can’t wait to play this one again!

 

  1. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake:

    Well, we all know who Prince of Persia is! The original game in the series itself was first released in 1989 and has undergone a number of sequels with this remake likely to be just as good. It will probably be broken into a trilogy of three games. Some really awesome graphics and sounds will be included in this release, which should appeal to gamers who like the original. We can’t wait to play it when it arrives sometime in the near future.

The game was set for an early 2021 release but has been delayed and is expected to arrive on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in 2021.

  1. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga:

    Another game that we haven’t seen in a while is the Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. As you can guess from the title, this one focuses on the Star Wars story and will include content that was released both before and after the prequel trilogy in 1999.

If you like playing games with Lego, then you are going to love this one! One of our favorite parts about this one is that it will be able to be played on all of your favorite gaming platforms including the Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC gaming platforms. We can’t wait!

  1. Horizon Forbidden West:

    We love playing Horizon game titles. You can play them solo and don’t need to wait for others to join. One of the most highly-anticipated games that we have seen in a while is Horizon Forbidden West.

This will include a procedurally generated world and you will have to avoid predators while also searching for food and water. There are different types of characters that you can add to your party and play with, so it can be completely custom-made. It doesn’t matter what platform you play on as this one will support PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. We can’t wait!
