Video games: the most anticipated exclusives of 2021

Video games: the most anticipated exclusives of 2021
What are the most anticipated exclusives of 2021? From the titles officially announced for this year to the ones we imagine will debut in the next twelve months, here's our list of the ten games we really can't wait to try.


Exclusively on PC and Xbox Series X | S in 2021

Let's start with what is perhaps the most nebulous exclusive in the list we have compiled, given that we do not yet know the period of release of the game and we can only imagine that it will make its debut in the course of 2021. Developed by Playground Games, Fable was officially announced with a trailer last July, but that was enough to make the many fans of the series in raptures.

The creature of Lionhead Studios and Peter Molyneux will return in a new form on Microsoft platforms, certainly maintaining the "moral" formula that characterized the first two chapters and that allows you to create an undefined character, which can change to The alignment during an adventure that once again promises to be full-bodied, engaging and spectacular thanks to a large and fascinating open world.

Forza Motorsport

Exclusively on PC and Xbox Series X | S in 2021

Given the experience of the developers of Turn 10, we can already assume that Forza Motorsport will be a visually impressive driving game, capable of making the most of the technical capabilities of Xbox Series X and offering us therefore absolutely excellent graphics, capable of running at 4K and 60 frames per second complete with active ray tracing.

The lack of numbers in the title probably indicates the birth of a real generational platform, which will keep us company for years and which will be updated continuously through the introduction of new cars, new tracks and new methods. In short, what Forza Motorsport aims to define is the future of this videogame genre: an exciting premise.

God of War 2

Exclusively on PS5 in 2021

Announced with a very short teaser in September, God of War 2 does not yet have an official title nor has it been shown in any way, but many are hoping that it will make its debut on PS5 as early as 2021. The reason is soon said : Cory Barlog's excellent narrative-based reinterpretation convinced everyone, and after the events of the episode released in 2018, the wait is great to see what will happen.

We have indeed left Kratos and his son Atreus grappling with the imminent Ragnarok, the mythological event that should mark the death of the Norse gods and which will likely result in a spectacular battle between the former Ghost of Sparta and his new, powerful adversaries. Will the battleground shift to Asgard? We'll find out soon.

Gran Turismo 7

Exclusively on PS5 in 2021

If 2021 will be the year of the new Forza Motorsport for Xbox racers , PS5 owners will be able to greet the arrival of Gran Turismo 7, the new edition of the famous driving game by Polyphony Digital, officially presented in June with a trailer that highlights the technical wonders made possible by the next-gen Sony console.

In fact, from a structural point of view it is not yet clear what exactly the offer of Kazunori Yamauchi's next creature will be, with the hope of immediately having a very full-bodied career mode, on the graphic front there are good few doubts: thanks to 4K, 60 frames per second and ray tracing, Gran Turismo 7 aims to establish itself as the best simcade of this generation.

Halo Infinite

Exclusively on PC , Xbox Series X | S and Xbox One in 2021

There has been a lot of talk of Halo Infinite after the game was shown with a gameplay demo last July, attracting a lot of criticism in particular for the technical sector, considered by most users not up to the level of such an important next-gen production. And so Microsoft has decided to postpone its release to 2021.

Aware at this point of having to prove something, the 343 Industries development team will pull out of the hat an experience that is not only solid and convincing in terms of gameplay, which they probably had already done, but it will also enhance it from a graphic point of view so that it can really eloquently demonstrate the power of Xbox Series X.

Horizon Forbidden West

In exclusive on PS5 and PS4 in 2021

Horizon Forbidden West will once again put us in the shoes of the brave huntress Aloy, who, after discovering the origins of the post-apocalyptic world in which she lives, will face a further threat represented by a mysterious red plague that attacks animals and vegetation, thus putting the survival of human beings at risk.

That's not all: this new type of Corruption also infects the Machines, turning them into creatures and even more dangerous and it seems that someone is taking advantage of it, creating particularly threatening combinations. In short, the ingredients are all there for an engaging and spectacular adventure, whose ambitions we hope will not be reduced by the cross-gen setting.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2

Exclusively on Nintendo Switch in 2021

Let's go back into the field of hypotheses and hopes with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, or what will be the official title of the new chapter of the Nintendo series. Presented with a short teaser at E3 2019, the game has not been shown on other occasions and its development is completely shrouded in mystery, but several insiders expect it to make its debut this year.

It is in fact one of the few real direct sequels made by the Japanese company, but the first chapter certainly deserved this treatment having established itself as one of the best action adventure games ever made, able to involve us in a suggestive and fascinating journey at the command of the traditional hero, courageous and indomitable.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Exclusively on PS5 in 2021

Without doubt one of the most anticipated exclusives for owners of PS5, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart sees Insomniac Games return to work on one of its historic franchises with an episode that aims to take full advantage of the technical potential of the next-gen Sony console and, in particular, the speed of its SSD, the used to instantly load new worlds towards which the protagonists can project themselves.

The gimmick of the portals will therefore be expressed in an eloquent way in the game, giving life to sequences that have never been so frenetic and spectacular, which will add to the gameplay well proven that we already know, capable of mixing platform and shooter mechanics to create a fun and impactful experience, further enhanced by ray tracing.

Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2

In exclusive on PC and Xbox Series X | S in 2021

We close our list with another title shrouded in mystery, Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2. Presented with a teaser during the Game Awards 2019, the new chapter of the series developed by Ninja Theory after the acquisition of the team by Microsoft aims to greatly expand the lore and atmospheres introduced with Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.

Set in Iceland, this sequel will try to insist on the elements that made the experience so peculiar, taking advantage of the considerable resources available to also offer a technical sector of excellence and more solid and refined fights, without obviously giving up the many narrative facets related to the visions of the protagonist.
