Mortal Kombat 11
Mortal Kombat 11 is offering a new story and it also brings in some amazing characters from the past too. We also have an extraordinary set of fatalities, new locations to explore and just a whole lot of content just as tournaments, skirmish battles and great campaign. Overall, Mortal Kombat 11 is set to become one of the best Mortal Kombat games yet.
Having a Paradox game set in Ancient Rome is a dream come true for a lot of people. As always, you need to develop your civilization, conquer your enemies and you have to use diplomacy as well as any means at your disposal to grow and evolve.
Borderlands 3 arrives in September and despite being an Epic Store timed exclusive, it’s a blast to play and it continues the story from the previous game. People that love Borderlands as a series will like the fact that there’s a ton of loot, plenty of new characters and some interesting enemies.
There are many things to like about Doom Eternal. Not only is it a continuation of the previous game, but it also has new weapons, a lot more hellish enemies and you can even have a ton of weapon mods too. There’s no mention about multiplayer, but that might end up being added soon.
Dying Light 2
Dying Light was revolutionary with its zombie gameplay and parkour elements. This new version will keep all of that while relying a lot on choices and what you do will shape your gameplay experience. It might change towards the better or it can actively destroy what you are trying to do.
Total War: Three Kingdoms
Total War: Three Kingdoms does a very good job at offering you an insight into the wars of ancient China. This is a time period that no game covered in detail, so we finally get to have a whole lot of fun exploring this great place, the battle for power and we will get to control massive armies as we try to get complete control.
Halo Master Chief Collection
A lot of people believed that this day would not come, but Halo Master Chief Collection is set to arrive this year on PC. They will add one game at a time, but rumors state that all games will be added by the end of the year. You will have complete campaigns and the amazing gameplay, so all of it adds up to a very good and fun experience.
MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries
We’ve been waiting for 17 years to get a new MechWarrior game, and this singleplayer iteration is definitely one to watch out for. We will have to destroy enemy strongholds, explore plants and do whatever we can to help our brethren evolve!
Hollow Knight: Silksong
This might not sound like much, but this indie game has a cult following and this sequel is actively bringing in a new shift to the Hollow Knight formula. Instead of descending, Hornet will try to climb more and more, something that’s very exciting and interesting for a game like this.
Aquanox: Deep Descent
Aquanox is a great game series and having a new iteration is amazing. Plus, there’s a lot to explore in those depths, which is why Aquanox: Deep Descent is set to be a very interesting game. There’s no word on the story, but whyat we do know is that the game arrives later this year.
Team Sonic Racing
Sonic racing games are some of the best kart games out there, so if you are a fan of insane gameplay and fun mechanics, this is certainly something you want to check out. You should consider giving it a try if possible, as it will be worth it.
If you want Diablo 3 in the Warhammer world, then this is the game for you. While there are only 4 archetypes to choose from, there are 70+ minion types and a pretty long story mode. Plus, there’s online or local coop, so you are bound to have fun with friends without a problem!
Wolfenstein: Youngblood also brings in Coop to the series and it does that with the addition of two new characters. But other than that, you can expect pretty much the same old enticing and fun Wolfenstein gameplay we all enjoy.
Age of Wonders: Planetfall
Age of Wonders: Planetfall is bringing in a sci-fi approach to the fantasy series and it also offers a whole lot more details. The turn based gameplay is still there, but everything is a lot more detailed and the gameplay is very intense, which really gets to set the game apart.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order arrives this holiday season and it comes from the Titanfall developers. That being said, it’s set to be a singleplayer experience, although there might be some multiplayer added in there for good measure too.
While we didn’t think we will get a new Settlers game, the reality is that this fall we finally get to have a new iteration. We can expect new buildings, new gameplay ideas and plenty of new characters too.
These are only a few of the many PC games you will be able to play later this year. If you like PC gaming or you’re looking for a fun game to play, it’s safe to say that these are very interesting and just a whole lot to enjoy. Regardless of what game genre you want, there’s something for everyone here, so check them out as soon as they arrive later on this year!
