309Write - Upcoming PC games: The best new games to look forward to in 2021 and beyond

Hitman 3

                             

Hitman 3 is pitched as the conclusion to the series and will see Agent 47 returning for his usual antics in the sandbox assassination game. Agent 47 will face his most important mission yet and with all the usual unparalleled player choice and replayability options too. One to look forward to.  

As usual, there will be opportunities to use your environment to finish the job or Agent 47's weapons and gear. The new trailer shows off all these possibilities, including 20 levels of mastery per level. So there's bound to be plenty to keep you playing!

Outriders

                 

From the team behind Gears of War Judgement and Bulletstorm comes a brand new co-op shooter with a dark sci-fi vibe.

This game is set to be a co-op game with 1-3 players able to drop in and out of the game at any point. 

You'll be creating your own Outrider to journey across a hostile planet, through slums and shantytowns,  forests and mountains and deserts too. Outriders promises "countless hours of gameplay" and intense gunplay too. Certainly, one to enjoy with your pals. 

Humankind

              

From the people that bought your Endless Space comes a new historical strategy game that will let you re-write history. Create your own civilisation and then evolve through the ages. Playing Humankind, you'll be facing significant historical events, making scientific breakthroughs, discovering the natural wonders of the world and more. All to build your own vision of the world.

Hazel Sky

Hazel Sky was revealed at PAX East and shows off an action-adventure game where you run about as Shane, a young engineer who's trying to fix various flying machines. Certainly a quaint looking indie game. 

Kingpin: Reloaded

If, like us, you're old enough to remember 1999's Kingpin: Life of Crime, then you might be pleased to hear that the controversial game is getting a remaster later this year. This reboot will add 4K and ultrawide support, as well as rebalanced gameplay, yet keeps the same classic aesthetic. We're looking forward to reliving the hazy days. 

Occupy Mars: The Game

From the same people who bought us Thief Simulator, Farm Manager 2018 and the Car Mechanic simulators comes a new game where your mission is to survive on Mars.

This new game is apparently a highly technical, open-world, sandbox centring around Mars colonisation. It will allow you to build and upgrade a base including everything from growing plants to learning how to generate oxygen and survive the harsh climates of Mars. 

Resident Evil Village

Dark, foreboding and full of "realistic terror" the next Resident Evil game promises it all. Resident Evil Village is set a few years after the events of Resident Evil 7 biohazard with peaceful beginnings ruined by tragedy. 

Psychonauts 2

Double Fine studios were at E3 2019 showing off gameplay footage for Psychonauts 2, alongside the annoucement that the company is joining Xbox Game Studios. 

Rainbow Six Quarantine

Straight out of E3 2019 comes what appears to be a spin-off of the Rainbow Six Siege Outbreak mode that made an appearance in 2018. This is a standalone game that's set in the near future.

A mutated alien parasite is infecting people and threatening mankind. The Rainbow Six team is on a mission to save the world - battling it out against the environment and trying to survive unpredictable missions.
