Like most things, the world of video gaming had its ups and downs the previous year.

For the good part, we had the release of Final Fantasy VII remake, Ghost of Tsushima, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons– all of which proved to be commercially and critically successful. New titles like Fall Guys and Among Us took everyone by storm. We also saw the launch of next-gen consoles, namely the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

Needless to say, it was also a year plagued by controversies. The much-awaited sequel to The Last of Us finally dropped but ended up polarizing what was once a very intact fandom. Cyberpunk 2077, after numerous delays, launched on PS4 and PS5 but also fell short in the early review scores– a somewhat disappointing result considering that it was expected to be the biggest game of the year.

As we kick off another year for video games, we’re bringing you 5 of the biggest titles set to launch on various platforms in the coming months. Check out uDOu’s 5 best games to look forward to this 2021.

Hitman 3

On January 20, Agent 47 returns as the merciless assassin who takes on a yet another set of missions to take down certain individuals. This one is set to offer a dramatic conclusion to the trilogy, and is said to have some of the best levels in the World of Assassination yet.

Far Cry 6

The sixth main installment to the popular first-person shooter franchise, Far Cry 6 brings the action to the fictional Caribbean island of Yara, which is ruled by fascist dictator “El Presidente” Antón Castillo played by Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito. It will arrive on February 18th, 2021 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC (via the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store).

Resident Evil Village

RE VIII is Capcom’s next-generation survival horror, slated to hit various platforms this year. The tenth major installment in the Resident Evil series, Village serves as the sequel to Resident Evil: Biohazard and is set years after the events in the infamous abandoned southern farmhouse.

Dying Light 2

Dying Light, one of the best zombie apocalyptic-themed games ever made, is gearing up to expand its universe. In this follow-up to the modern classic, players find themselves 15 years after the events of the original game, now a new protagonist named Aiden Caldwell. A Gameplay World Premiere published in June 2018 showcases how bigger this new game is going to be in terms of gameplay, narrative, and choices.

Deathloop

Developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks, Deathloop is the most unique take on an assassination-themed game, yet. It combines the gameplay of a first-person shooter with a narrative that relies heavily on time loop. This next-gen action-adventure is slated to arrive on the PlayStation 5 and Windows on May 21, 2021.
