Recently released games

Despite the issues that have affected us all in 2020, there have still been many games released- with some big hitters thrown into the mix. The staples of the EA sports world have come along as scheduled, with Madden, NBA and FIFA all getting new ’21 entries. PES has skipped a year though, only releasing an update rather than a whole new game.

Other franchises also saw new additions to with Watch Dogs Legion getting a release, while Dirt 5 was released last month and will get a next-gen upgrade shortly. Assassin’s Creed returned too with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, their most successful game at launch yet and one that looks staggeringly good on both the next-gen machines.

Elsewhere, Marvel came along and gave us an Avengers game that got a mixed reception- despite giving us a solid campaign. And Switch gamers got a blast of nostalgia with the release of Mario 3D All-stars, a collection of 3D Mario games that includes the legendary Mario 64.

And of course, the next-generation of gaming is here and the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and the PS5 are finally here to play!
