We’re almost at the end of Q1 for this year and as far as game releases are concerned, this past (almost) 3 months have been nothing short of ground-breaking.

More than 25 chart-topping games have hit the market so far, for some of which game keys are currently on sale and some others that are still on pre-order but will most definitely be hits – and we still have the rest of the year to look forward to. With so many new games due for release and out already, we’ve decided to check out the best console and PC games across several platforms. That’s right, we’re actually venturing beyond just PC games for once.

Another note is we’re not looking to review older awesome games such as World of Warcraft / similar games. We wanted to provide a list of games that recently came out or are still not yet fully available that are being released later on in 2021 but are destined to be remarkable.

Below, you’ll find our top 10 picks.

Best Video Games of 2021

1. Cyberpunk 2077 (Pre-order) starting at $44.74 on Cdkeybay for PC game

Xbox – $49.69 and Playstation – $59.99

Brought to you by the same folks that created iconic series such as The Witcher (CD Projekt), you might already guess this game is going to be a hit for the ages. 

Cyberpunk is the first hit of this year. Released in first days of this year, it was and still is an instant hit.

4. The Last of Us Part III

For those of you that were fans of the previous installment, no words can truly describe how much more iconic the new release is set to be. With a due date scheduled for May 29 and coming out on PS4 consoles, well-known regulars are back (including Joel and Ellie).

But the question arises. Will there be a 3rd part of this mega-successful game series? There are rumours that the 3rd part will be released at the end of this running year.

5. Maneater cd key starting at $21.22

If you aren’t terrified of sharks, you will be after playing this game. This action RPG is set for release in 2021, but the actual date has eluded us, which we feel only adds to the terror of what lies beneath. The game will be available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and promises to be as horrifying as it is nightmare-worthy. We’ll have to wait and see what developers Tripwire Interactive have in store for us as the year progresses. We eagerly await their next update!

6. Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 Battle Pass

Since its release in the middle of 2017 Fortnite quickly took over the previous number 1 on the charts back then, the PUBG survival game and kept the position as survival mmo number one till nowadays. With this new season, Epic Games offer a new map, new skins and new rewards to its millions of players around the world and 1500 V bucks are included in the expantion, so if you save them it should be enough to get the next season pass for Free.

7. Arma 4

When humanity suddenly encounters Extraterrestrial life on Earth, you are deployed as a soldier in order to fight the invaders by first starting to study them, evaluating their intentions but the conflict is inevitable.

There are rumors that Bohemia Interactive, the publisher of the game will release the new Arma IV at the end of the year. We don’t have an exact release date but we will keep you posted.

Like rust but with advanced graphics and…Dinosaurs. Helpless on the mysterious island called ARK. You will have to fight these prehistoric creatures but also the challenging environment, the weather, and the other players in order to survive. The goal is to escape from this hostile island.
