From Jurassic World Evolution 2 to Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, the past week gave a lot of content for gamers to be excited about. A whole bunch of news came out during E3 2021, the 2021 Summer Game Fest, and more. Certain indie titles not part of big events also tried to make a splash.
Of course, I won’t be able to cover every single game that was announced over the past week or so. Instead, I have created a list of games (covering a wide range of genres) that should be on your radar.
Jurassic World Evolution 2
First up we have the sequel to 2018’s Jurassic World Evolution. The Jurassic World Evolution game series allows you to create the dinosaur theme park of your dreams. Jurassic World Evolution 2 is scheduled to be released sometime later this year. Apparantly, it will have a campaign mode that allows you to rebuild the park after the events of the Jurassic World film. According to the trailer, fans should look forward to better graphics, animations, and new dinosaurs (including aquatic species).
You can Wishlist the game on Steam if you want to.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora
While we wait for Avatar 2 to be released, at least there’s the Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora game fans can look forward to. Aiming for a 2022 debut, the upcoming game seems to be a first-person experience. Even though I’m not the biggest Avatar fan out there, I have to say that exploring Pandora sounds very interesting. The trailer does have some action in it. But I can’t be sure what the actual gameplay will be like.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy
I think the PR team for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy wasn’t expecting the game to be dragged online. A number of people were not amused by said title only allowing you to play as Star-Lord, with the rest of the team being AI-controlled. With the game set to launch on October 26, 2021, we’ll find out soon enough if gameplay focusing on solely Star-Lord can turn a profit.
A Township Tale
Virtual RPG A Township Tale will launch on July 15, 2021, for the Oculus Quest (compatible with both Oculus Quest 1 and 2). Set in a medieval fantasy world, players can band together with up to eight friends on a virtual server to take on professions and craft equipment while they explore the dangerous world before them.
You can Wishlist it right now.
The Swordsmen X: Survival
Planning for a Q4 2021, release, The Swordsmen X: Survival is an action survival game where you can hone combat skills, establish a home, and make choices to fulfil your destiny as a martial arts hero.
Tales of Iron
From United Label we have the RPG Tales of Iron. Looking at a 2021 release, this game features the vocals of Doug Cockle (voice of Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher). Playing as Redgi, heir to the Rat Throne, you are tasked with restoring your broken Kingdom by banishing the merciless Frog Clan and their ferocious leader, Greenwart.
You can Wishlist and Pre-order it here.
Conway: Disappearance at Dahlia View
For gamers interested in solving mysteries, Conway: Disappearance at Dahlia View puts you in the shoes of retired detective Robert Conway. Set in a dark and foreboding 1950s England, you will need to investigate the disturbing disappearance of Conway’s 8-year-old neighbor, Charlotte May. This title has been described as essentially Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window but in a videogame format.
Set for an Autumn 2021 release, you can Wishlist it on Steam.
Revealed at the PC Gaming Show, Silt allows you to explore the depths of a monochrome oceanic void. It will launch on PC sometime in early 2022. Having watched the trailer, I do like the art and the gameplay which, from what I can tell, gives you the ability to possess marine life to solve puzzles and survive.
It’s available for you to Wishlist on Steam.
So, that was my list.
