7 Video Games Based on Movies, Sport & TV Shows Coming Out In 2021
Rest assured; it is not all doom and gloom this year. We are delighted to put together for you the list of the most hotly anticipated video games that are set to be released in the following months of 2021. If you are anything like us, you will know that video games have been a godsend which have allowed us some sanity in a world full of lockdowns. The video game industry has seen a bumper couple of years due to the large numbers of the population being forced to stay indoors and we hope that much of the extra profits which game companies have made will be reinvested into new games.
We are extremely excited to bring to you our list of seven video game movies and TV shows which are set to be released in 2021.
Terminator Resistance: Enhanced
Release Date: 30 April 2021
We are thrilled to inform you that the first game on our list has already been released and is available to purchase online or from your nearest store. Terminator Resistance: Enhanced is of course based on the classic Terminator films. Originally released as Terminator: Resistance, The Enhanced version was released on 30 April 2021 on the PlayStation 5 to very good player reviews. Although the graphics were certainly not the greatest in the 2019 released version, the PS5 updated game delivers much better visuals. In addition, the developers did a great job of bringing The War Against The Machines to life.
If you have managed to get yourself a PS5 then we certainly would recommend this movie-based game. Fans of the film series are sure to love Terminator Resistance: Enhanced which has been described as the best Terminator game ever made.
Guises of Dracula Slot Game
Release Date: 15 June 2021
Guises of Dracula is an upcoming online slot game from game developers Platipus. Based on the film version of Dracula, this game allows players to enter Dracula’s castle. The graphics are not horror related though, they are animated and have more of a cartoon feel to them. The music is a little creepy but overall Guises of Dracula is set to be one of the most exciting slot releases of 2021.
Players will be able to play Guises of Dracula from June 15th at most online casinos in the United Kingdom. High roller slot games like this one are popular among casino players due to the opportunity of large payouts!
Release Date: 16 July 2021
This year’s Formula One season is shaping up to be the most exciting ever, we just wish we could still watch the races live on terrestrial TV! Nonetheless, the release of F1 2021 is expected to be one of the biggest yet thanks to last years coverage of the previous years game across television sets. Last year, during the off-season and when the pandemic stopped the racing from taking place, many of the drivers and other well-known figures took part in an online F1 championship. Although the man of the moment Lewis Hamilton did not compete, the televised gameplay brought about a number of new video game players to the F1 video game series.
F1 2021 is set for release on 16 July and will feature iconic Formula 1 drivers, Michael Schumacher, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna for the first time in the “My team” part of the game.
WWE 2K22 – October 2021
Release Date: October 2021
Watching WWE on the television has certain been a bit surreal since the beginning of 2020 given that arenas are completely empty of fans, but WWE 2K22 does its best to bring things back to normal. The last WWE 2K game (WWE 2K20) received a lot of negative feedback but the executive producer of the franchise Patrick Gilmore has told fans that the newest title will rely more on quality, thankfully.
Unfortunately, there is not much enough surrounding the game. Only several wrestlers have been confirmed to appear in the game so far including Rey Mysterio and Daniel Bryan but we expect there to be a full rooster of wrestlers when the final game is released.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
Release Date: TBA
Okay, we will be the first to admit that the latest three Star Wars films were not quite to everyone’s taste. But we can be pretty sure that the latest Lego Star Wars game will deliver where the Disney film makers could not. We hope that the Lego Star Wars team will be given the go-ahead to apply their usual subtle whimsy to the game. Lego Star Wars games are great no matter your age and are never devoid of humour. The game though, will adapt all nine films in the Skywalker series, so this includes all the main films from Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace up to Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be released for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5 and Xbox One and Series X/S in 2021 although the exact date has not yet been announced. We expect the game to be released in Autumn. I am personally looking forward to playing through the Clone Wars once more!
Marvel Future Revolution
Release Date: TBA
The new Marvel Future Revolution game is set to be one of the biggest mobile game releases of all time. The game will bring heroes from across all of the company’s movie franchises together in an open world, multiplayer RPG. Marvel Future Revolution has all of the ingredients to make an absolutely epic game, we just hope that the fact it will be mobile only won’t put people off. The developers have assured potential players that they will be able to explore open environments in 3D with AAA quality graphics. Although the game will not be an MMO, we feel that the game will share many similarities with other popular MMO’s due to its multiplayer aspect.
Although no release date has been set, Marvel has shared gameplay footage of Marvel Future Revolution which you can view for yourself below.
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
Release Date: TBA
(Yes, I know this is a video game, which had a tv show/film, and now a video game, but I’ll allow it!) It has now been over 21 years since first-generation games Pokémon Red and Blue were first released in Europe and boy has the time flown by. Fast-forward seven more generations and 2021 will see the release of Generation VIII games, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. The upcoming releases are remakes of the 2006 Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Nintendo DS games. However, we hope the fact that Game Freak not being the usual lead developer will not affect the remakes. Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are being developed by ILCA with Game Freak as the oversight company.
Both games will be released on the Nintendo Switch and although no release date has been set yet, we expect the games to be released before the end of 2021. Pokémon fans may rejoice once again!
