The excitement of playing a new game can’t be matched by anything else. With the new PS5 and the Xbox series S being the net gen consoles with some major improvements we can see some games which will test their capabilities to the limit.

The Nintendo Switch is also a great handheld console with Nintendo dropping new games almost every quarter. PC games continue to set the standard for an overall amazing game. Here is the list of the ten games that we are most hyped about.

1) Rainbow Six Extraction

Fun fact about this game, It was originally going to be named ‘Rainbow Six Quarantine.’ After the Covid quarantine, they rightly decided to change the name and call it Rainbow Six Extraction. It is the latest instalment in Ubisoft’s tactical shooter.

This time they have swapped out Tom Clancy’s usual human enemies and replaced them with aliens. They have also added some new guns suitable to take out the aliens. It gives off a zombie survivor vibe but with aliens. We can’t wait to test it out. The game will be available on PS5, PS4, PC and Xbox. It releases on September 16.

2) Guardians of the Galaxy

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is going strong and we had heard rumours about a new Guardians of the Galaxy game was in the works. But when they released the trailer at E3 fans were left shocked to see the game so early.

Square Enix, the studio behind this game, has given us so many gems in the past that expectations are high. Especially after watching the trailer. This will be their original take on the franchise. It will have a single-player campaign. The game will be available on PS5, Xbox, PC and Nintendo Switch. It releases on October 26. 

3) Life is Strange: True Colours

Life is Strange is an amazing series with the story taking new twists. The franchise has delivered some emotional gaming experiences. True Colours will be the third core game of the series. Deck Nine, developer of the prequel- Before the Storm will be making this game.

This time they are releasing the whole game instead of releasing a series of episodes. We follow Alex Chen, who can feel others strong emotions, as she searches for the truth regarding her brother’s death. The game will be released on September 15. You can play it on PS5, PS4, PC and Xbox

4) FIFA 22

The fan favourite franchise is returning with new features in FIFA 22. The trailer released by EA is just supposed to get the fans hyped up. We will see some actual gameplay as we near the release date. The innovative thing that EA has done this year is they fitted professional players with an Xsens suit to capture the realistic movements and give the feeling of an intense football match.

It is called as HyperMotion and it has got the fans excited. It will be a revolutionary feature for the sports simulator. The game will be released on October 1. You can play it on PS5, Xbox, PS4, Switch and PC. 

5) Battlefield 2042

The new Battlefield is the future of first person shooter games on the next-gen consoles. It is only rivalled by Call of Duty, which has not announced anything as of yet. The game will offer a multiplayer mode for 128 players.

According to sources, Battlefield 2042 will not have a campaign mode. Instead, the story will be told through multiplayer battles. You will be able to play the game on PS5, Xbox, PS4 and PC. It will be released on October 22.

6) Ghostwire: Tokyo

Ghostwire: Tokyo is an action game developed by Tango Gameworks. The studio had previously developed the survival horror game The Evil Within. It will be exciting to see their spin on the action genre. The game has some amazing visuals and first person action.

The combat is described as ‘karate meets magic.’ The game will be available on PS5 and PC. It is planned to be released in October 2021. 

7) Halo: Infinite

Halo: Infinite was supposed to be launched with the new Xbox console but the developers decided to delay the launch and work on the game a bit more.

It can be said that it is a good thing as the Halo 5 was such a disappointment. Fans would rather have the game late than be let down by the new game. Hopefully Halo: Infinite turns out better than the last one. The release date is Autumn 2021. It will be available on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC.

8) Far Cry 6

In Fry Cry 6 you play as a freedom fighter who has to take down the authoritarian leader of a fictional Caribbean island nation. The leader is played by none other than Giancarlo Esposito, known for portraying Gus Fring in the Breaking Bad series.

The Far Cry series has some amazing stories and gameplay. So let’s see what this part of the game has to offer. You will be able to play the game on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One and PC. It will be released on October 7. 

9) Deathloop

Deathloop is developed by Arkane, the studio behind Dishonoured and Prey. The trailer looks absolutely stunning. It looks as if they have blended the key elements of the previous games and added some more amazing stuff.

Deathloop takes place on an island where there are two assassins trying to foil each other’s plans. It gets more complex with the added element of a time loop. The game was supposed to be launched in May but it was delayed to September 14. It will be available on PS5 and PC.

10) Metroid Dread

Metroid has been a fan favourite series for years. Fans were excited when Nintendo revealed Metroid 5 during E3 2021. The official name of the game will be Metroid Dread.
