Although 2020 was a strange and exciting year, many good video games helped people to spend time in quarantine, including Animal crossing: new horizons, which provided social interaction and relaxation; The Last of Us Part II, the action adventure that continued Ellie’s journey through post-apocalyptic America; and different iterations of the high-octane, first-person shooter franchise Call of Duty.
If we look forward to it, a number of studio and independent video games released in 2021 promise the same – if not better – innovative storytelling, exciting battles and daring new experiences.
Among the entries are scams Hitman 3, which is the eighth installment in the series following the escapades of assassin Agent 47, voiced by veteran actor David Bateson. There are also Far Cry 6, the sixth installment in the series with Giancarlo Esposito, and the sequel to God of war, who won the match of the year at the Game Awards in 2018.
Meanwhile, Annapurna Interactive, known for its romantic and emotional Florence and the story-driven What’s left of Edith Finch, releases the star-studded narrative thriller Twelve minutes with Daisy Ridley, James McAvoy and Willem Dafoe.
