We’ve picked out the best games coming to PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch in 2021
Shiny-headed amoral assassin? Check. A plethora of increasingly implausible disguises? Check. Seemingly limitless ways of murdering your targets? Check. It could only be gaming’s most professional killer, Agent 47, returning for another creative bloodbath across sprawling sandbox maps.
It Takes Two
Swedish developer Headlight Studios are experts at making cooperative games, and they’re back with another one – a pure co-op experience called It Takes Two. The art style looks Pixar-is: a couple is turned into dolls and must race through zany levels together to escape, a metaphor for improving their ailing relationship. The gameplay looks fast, fun, and varied, with the companions sliding down icy slides and dodging giant Venus flytraps. Looks like a mix between Fall Guys and 3D Sonic, and should inject some joy in these dark times.
Monster Hunter Rise
Resident Evil 8: Village
Arcane Studios, who created the underrated steampunk game Dishonored, is back with another new world. Death loop looks great, particularly among the endless sci-fi-styled titles we’re currently inundated with. The trailer looks like a 1970s blaxploitation film, with two immortal assassins locked in deadly acrobatic combat. If we’ve locked down again next summer, Decathlon might be the title to help us ride out the pain.

You play a stray cat, wandering through a bustling nighttime metropolis of neon lights and…just robots. Where are the humans? Find out later this year.
