Little devil inside
Little devil inside is a third person action adventure RPG being developed by neostream.
This project has actually been around since 2015 is a Kickstarter project where you were hired by a professor who’s researching unusual incidents in uncharted parts of the world.
You’re assigned to undertake risky missions and as more and more research is done you’ll be able to upgrade your armor weapons and transportation.
I find the art style very intriguing and in the trailer you see the main character pull off an array of different motions ranging from running to jumping slicing decapitating.
And all of these animations look incredibly well done. And all of them transition very naturally into each other. While no official release date has been announced this project is currently set to release sometime in 2021.
Ruined king a league of legends story
Ruined king a league of legends story is a story-driven turn-based rpg game being developed by riot forge. for those of you who don’t know riot is a powerhouse in the online gaming world.
however this is riot’s first attempt into a single player story driven game.
you control a party of up to three different popular heroes from the league of legends world to take on the mysterious ruined king.
And while not much else is known about the story wright almost always releases quality games. so keep an eye on this title as it’s set to arrive sometime in 2021.
Lost souls aside
Lost souls aside you play as the protagonist kaiser with the goal of eliminating the monsters that have broken into your world. and discovering why they’ve come.
the creator has said to take inspiration from final fantasy xv and ninja gaiden.
And the full trailer shows a multi-phase boss battle that i highly recommend checking out if the game looks at all interesting to you.
while the release date of this game is currently unknown. this was a project that was hopeful for a 2020 release but was delayed due to covid.
so expect this game out sometime in 2021.
crimson desert is an open world single player action rpg.
and this game is being developed by pro abyss that’s the team behind black desert online.
this game was initially announced as another mmo project but has since changed course to a story driven solo experience with some multiplayer functions.
players travel as mcduff the main protagonist of the story.
Solving mysteries and fighting a wide variety of foes alongside your own group of mercenaries.
All of whom have their own backstories crimson desert is set to have very strong fantasy elements and is set for a quarter 4 20 21 release.
Kana bridge of spirits
kana bridge of spirits is one of the most beautiful looking action adventure games i believe was teased in 2020.
ember labs have created a new ip where it basically looks like you’re in a pixar-esque world.
where you place the character kana and journey to discover what’s behind the fall of your village. you’ll find and collect little creatures known as rot during your adventure.
and the rock can actually acquire new abilities. this game just looks absolutely gorgeous and with the fast-paced combat and puzzle solving elements.
the game is definitely one of the most intriguing titles on this list. this game is scheduled to drop in quarter 1 of 2021.
project aethea a title that will probably change for its release is a beautiful looking fantasy title from luminos productions.
for this project they had brought on the star wars rogue one writer gary witta to be project atheist writing lead and he has stated that he has a cracked team of a-list writers from the world of film tv games and fantasy literature to create the game’s universe.
the trailer shows a female character who appears to be a magician of sorts traveling through burnt ruins interesting creatures and probably one of the coolest dragons that i’ve seen in a trailer.
while little more is known about this game we do know the game is targeting a 2021 release date and will be exclusive to the ps5 two years after its release.
Elden ring is being developed by from software the fame producer of the soul series.
they also brought on George rr martin to write the mythology of the world and if you don’t know who that is he’s the writer for the game of thrones series.
it’s been stated that this is from software’s most ambitious game to date and this game went dead silent on any news since over a year ago when the trailer was shown.
however very recently there have been reports that the game is actually finished and is now in the polishing stage of development.
so while there is no official release date my personal hope is we do see this game drop sometime in the first half of 2021.
God of War Ragnarok
And rounding out the list at number one god of war ragnarok. this is obviously the follow-up to the ps4 god of war game that won pretty much every single game of the year award out there.
And we know next to pretty much nothing about this game. except that it will release sometime in 2021.
there are some online rumors that there will be a time skip involved but nothing has been confirmed yet i do believe that this game will release on the ps4 as well as the ps5.
so if you won’t be able to get a ps5 this year i think you’ll still be okay to play this game.
