In addition, the heroine will have to face old enemies - the cult of the out-of-control artificial intelligence AID.

The release is expected to take place in the second half of 2021 on PS5 and later on PC. If so, then in the near future it is worth waiting for new trailers and details.

The project will be released in 2021 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch and PC. The exact release date is still unknown.


Dragon age

Dragon age

No, this is not a remake of the original Dragon Age , a direct sequelDragon Age: Inquisition . The main storyline will be the story of the elven magician Solas, one of our companions in the "Inquisition". However, the developers have promised that he will not be the only familiar character. At the same time, a new protagonist will appear in the game - "the one who can overcome evil forces."

So far, we have not seen any real gameplay or storyline. In the fresh trailer, they showed only a cut of frames showing what the world of the game has become.

And although the stage of readiness is difficult to assess, while the project is still planned to be released in the fall-winter of 2021. Dragon Age will be available for PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X | S, and PC.


Hogwarts Legacy

Hogwarts Legacy

The first "full-size" Harry Potter game in a long time. Fans of "potterians" are waiting for an action-RPG with an open world, the ability to customize their character and write their own history of events that took place within the walls of the Hogwarts school in the 19th century.

Since the project will chronologically be a prequel to the book universe, we will not see Harry and his friends, not Dumbledore, not even Tom Riddle or Newt Scamander. However, they left a couple of familiar faces: for example, in the castle, you can still meet Almost Headless Nick.

The developers promise a special experience from the game to PS5 owners, as Hogwarts Legacy makes extensive use of DualSense capabilities. However, it will also be available for PS4, as well as Xbox One, Xbox Series and PC. The release, according to information on the official website of the project, is expected in 2021. There is no exact date.


GhostWire: Tokyo

GhostWire: Tokyo

GhostWire: Tokyo after the demonstration at the Sony conference caused heated discussions: there are a lot of incomprehensible things in it. Only one thing is clear from the announcement trailer: we have to play the role of a man who fights ghosts with magic. Since the gameplay is based on the fact that with the help of two hands to conjure something deadly, it makes sense to expect widespread use of the capabilities of the DualSense controller.

In their previous projects, Tango Gameworks have demonstrated their ability to create an oppressive atmosphere and stylish design. We hope that this time they will not disappoint. The game is expected to be released in 2021 on PlayStation 5 and PC.


Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2

The long-awaited sequel to the cult classic may finally see the light of day in 2021. This time we will watch the squabbles of the vampire clans in Seattle - "the city of many factions and attractive, but dangerous characters."

The developers threaten to provide even more room for the development and customization of the hero than in the first Bloodlines . As before, you can try on the role of a charming aristocrat, a cold villain, or even a crazy bloodsucker. However, in the latter case, one must bear in mind that violation of the Masquerade still does not promise anything good.

Exit Bloodlines 2 is expected on PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Series, as well as PC. Hopefully, the RPG will not be carried over for another year .


God of War: Ragnarok

God of War: Ragnarok

Continuation God of War 2018 will tell us what happened next with the god of war Kratos and his son Atreus in the world of the Scandinavian gods. Judging by the subtitle, the heroes will have to face the end of the world, which, according to myths, will erase the universe and the gods from the face, and the whole world along with them. However, it is possible that the heroes themselves will become the cause of Ragnarok.

So far, we have not been shown any gameplay or story scenes. In addition, it is still unknown whether the game will be exclusive to the PlayStation 5 or whether it will be available to PlayStation 4 owners. However, from the words thatRagnarok will be released in 2021, the developers still have not given up.


Biomutant

Biomutant

"Post-apocalyptic kung fu fairy tale" Biomutant, after several transfers, may also be released next year. Back in the summer of 2020, the creative director of the game reported: work on it is in the final stage, so there is a hope that the project will be released in the next two to three months.

Biomutant is set in a world full of intelligent animal-like mutants. Leveling the hero here also implies new mutations. We are promised a large open world, various mounts, a wide crafting system, rich character customization, and the ability to use not only weapons, but also giant robots in battle.

The exact release date of the game has not yet been determined - according to the developers, they will name it when they are sure. However, stores point to 2021.
