With 2020 firmly set in our rearview mirrors, it is high time we look forward to what awaits video gamers in 2021. The next-gen consoles, the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X|S, have come out and with them comes a whole world of new possibilities. That is not to say that the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and the PC markets will be slumbering throughout the year though.

What we are really saying here is that there are some big titles coming out across the board and we are here to break down some of the biggest releases that are at least tentatively planned for 2021. We have a wide variety of titles that will be offered up, so there should be a little something for everyone. If all else fails, you can always check out Platin Casino for some innovative games that may be more your style. Let us get right into it.

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury
In February 2021, Nintendo Switch fans can look forward to Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. This release brings the classic and much-loved Super Mario 3D World to the Nintendo Switch for the first time. It also includes bonus content by way of Bowser's Fury, which will offer up more challenges for fans to face solo or with some friends. This release will also include two new Amiibo by way of Cat Mario and Cat Peach.

April includes a couple of big releases. First up, we have Outriders coming at you from Square Enix and People Can Fly. This fast-paced third-person title suggests a Destiny like experience but cranked up to 11.

It features a wide variety of weapons to choose from in order to annihilate your foes. In addition, there are tons of unique abilities spread out across four classes. Just like Destiny, Outriders can be viewed as an action-RPG with multiple ways to expand your skillset and improve your characters thanks to a robust skill tree like upgrade system.

Fans can try out a demo for Outriders this February while the full game will be released on April 1, 2021. That's no joke either. It will hit PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Stadia.

Elden Ring
The latest Soulslike by From Software, Elden Ring, may still be a long way away. Right now, it is tentatively slated for a 2021 release by most outlets, but that may change in the months ahead. Details are still very scarce, but what we do know is that the story has been penned by Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin.

We have seen only an initial teaser trailer for Elden Ring, but that was enough to set fans into a frenzy. It is nearing about two years since that trailer's debut, meaning that the game has been in development now for quite some time. 2021 is looking like a prime window for more details and hopefully a holiday 2021 release.

Resident Evil Village
Resident Evil fans won't have too long to wait now for their next mainline entry release. Capcom blew the lid off Resident Evil Village, or Resident Evil VIII, by way of a recent livestream event. The release date for Village was revealed to be May 7 for both current and last-gen consoles along with the PC.

Resident Evil Village will go back to the first-person perspective with main protagonist Ethan Winters. Winters seems to have found himself at odds with other series mainstay Chris Redfield as he travels to an isolated European village in pursuit of him. Look forward to encounters with werewolf like beasts, giant monstrosities, and one large vampire lady that fans seem to adore.

Bethesda Game Studios is hard at work on their newest IP in quite some time. While they are known for series like Fallout and The Elder Scrolls, Starfield is set to be a wholly new IP made in that classic Bethesda style.

Starfield was originally revealed back in 2018 during E3. Remember E3? It will bring the traditional Bethesda style RPG gaming experience to the far reaches of outer space. The game will focus on travelling to different planets and will hopefully present a visual showcase of diverse locations. We have not seen much on Starfield for quite some time now, leaving 2021 a perfect year for a fresh reveal and tons more details. Could we even see a release happening later this year? It's very possible.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition
It's Mass Effect but made Legendary. All joking aside, Mass Effect Legendary Edition is a re-release of the first three main Mass Effect titles only with a fresh coat of paint and some minor gameplay adjustments. Like many of the other titles on this list, we have not seen much on the Legendary Edition since its initial trailer reveal, but we have high hopes for it. After all, if they stick close enough to the original formula, this is sure to be a massive hit.

Also in conjunction with the Mass Effect Legendary Edition is a new Mass Effect title. This new Mass Effect title is still incredibly early in development, but from what we have seen, it should make fans of the original trilogy happy. This new Mass Effect takes place years after the end of the original trilogy and features at least one returning face.

And moreā€¦
We selected some of the biggest titles for 2021, but there are still plenty more than what we were able to talk about here. There are games like Deathloop, a new Fable game, and even the still untitled God of War sequel all looking for some recognition in 2021. Let us not forget about Halo: Infinite, which was delayed to 2021 from a late 2020 release. Perhaps we will finally get to see more of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2, or even The Elder Scrolls VI. There are tons more than what is listed here, and we are excited for all of them.
