The announcement of the PS5 & Xbox Series X has made waves across the gaming industry, as millions of excited fans await the arrival of the latest upgrade that console gaming has to offer.
Since its release in 2014, the PS4 has hosted hundreds of popular games that console gamers love, like Call of Duty Warzone, Rainbow Six Siege and Black Ops to name a few. Now the next generation of consoles are about to bring along some amazing new releases, with upgraded graphics, storylines, and gameplay. Here are 3 upcoming games being released on the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
1. Hogwarts: Legacy
The recently announced Hogwarts: Legacy is the latest instalment in the Harry Potter franchise of video games, set to be released in 2021. The game itself will be an open-world role playing game, which allows players to create their own witch or wizard to participate in endless adventure at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It’s a highly anticipated game that has initiated a wave of nostalgia amongst the players of the clunky PC games of Harry Potter that were released in the early 2000s. The developers have even hinted at the possibility of players being given the choice between making good and evil choices, to determine the overall moral compass of your witch/wizard!
2. Lord of the Rings: Gollum
Announced in March 2019, this will be a LOTR game unlike any before it. The game is based slightly before the events of The Hobbit, just after Smeagol first finds the ring. Being a story-based game means that there will be up to 400 years of Gollum’s life to experience first-hand. Gamers will have the opportunity to play around with 2 main choice elements; the Smeagol based decisions versus the ones pushed by Gollum!
3. Resident Evil 8: Village
RE8 is likely to be one of the most exciting releases of 2021, as fans get to experience the latest events in the Resident Evil storyline. Set in a small European village above a dark castle, players will face off against hordes of enemies unlike any seen before. Similar to its predecessor RE7, this game will also feature a first-person perspective. The trailer already looks pretty intense!
Other than the fact that purchasing the latest console is going to set you back a small fortune, one other thing is for sure: there are going to be some pretty damn amazing games coming out in the future, and this is just the beginning. It’s likely that we’ll even see the birth of a new eSports game! Check out some of the latest upcoming shooters for eSports!
