  • January 15, 2021

With new computer and console games being released almost every single day and being accessible for online download anytime, it’s no wonder that so many people now play games as their main pastime. As we cross over into 2021, here are the latest and upcoming games that have captured headlines and will have you spending hours immersed in their world!

Cyberpunk 2077

After a decade of development and countless release date postponements, it’s finally here! Cyberpunk 2077, the dystopian futuristic sci-fi role-playing game, has finally been released. Cyberpunk features a future where society is run by corporations. You play as a mercenary hunting for an implant that gives immortality, as you explore the massive open world and make choices that bring you closer to your goal, and also shape the world around you.

Cyberpunk has been lauded for its graphics quality and its world–and of course, with Keanu Reeves playing one of the main characters you meet in the game, what’s not to like? Still, you may be better starting on it in January or February, after major patches have been rolled out to address some of the more serious bugs.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake

The original Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was a masterpiece of its era, and was the trailblazer that inaugurated a new generation of action-adventure games that resulted in the first early open-world games such as Assassin’s Creed. Now, Ubisoft has remade the game with modern graphics, control mapping, better gameplay, but the same great story that made the original so exciting. Now, as the Prince, save your kingdom once again from your evil Vizier by mastering the powers of time!

Hitman 3

If stealth and deadliness are your thing, then Hitman 3 may suit you to a T. Reprising your role as an assassin out to hunt bad guys, in Hitman 3, you will conclude your global campaign to rid the world of the darkest criminals and kingpins with the most important contracts of your career. Every playthrough can be different, with different start locations, equipment, abilities, playstyles and objectives, especially since you can’t complete every objective or see everything in one single session. Be silent, be invisible, and take out your targets!
