FIFA 21 – March 17

Win as one in EA SPORTS FIFA 21 with new ways to team up and express yourself on the street and in the stadium. Powered by Frostbite, FIFA 21 raises the game with fresh features:

  • Enjoy even bigger victories together in VOLTA FOOTBALL SQUADS and FIFA Ultimate Team Co-Op.
  • Feel a new level of gameplay realism that rewards you for your creativity and control.
  • Manage every moment in FIFA 21 Career Mode with new innovations that create additional depth in matches, transfers, and training.
  • Experience unrivaled authenticity that gives you the most true-to-life experience of The World’s Game including the UEFA Champions League and CONMEBOL Libertadores.

Judgement – April 23

From the makers of the acclaimed Yakuza series, Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, Judgment is the dramatic tale of a disgraced lawyer seeking redemption in a world rife with corruption and despair. Investigate the seedy Red Light District of Kamurocho by stepping into the mind of private detective Takayuki Yagami and utilize innovative investigation systems to uncover the secrets that lie deep within Kamurocho’s corrupt underbelly.

Experience visceral combat with two unique combat styles. Takedown groups of thugs with sweeping blows in Crane Style, then switch to Tiger to overwhelm a single foe with a series of powerful strikes. Practice mixing-and-matching styles in combat in conjunction with a wide variety of skills, weapons, and powerful (and hilarious) EX Actions to unlock a whole new dimension in combat.

Features:

  • Dual Audio & Script: Judgment is the first in SEGA’s brand new “Dual Script” feature. Players can experience Judgment in English or Japanese language supported by individual English subtitle tracks. English subtitles match the localized English voice lines, while English subtitles over the Japanese language follow the native dialogue more faithfully.
  • High-Definition and 60 FPS: Remastered for next-generation technology, Judgment runs smoothly at 60 FPS with detailed, high-definition graphics.

Hellpoint – Release date unannounced

Hellpoint is a dark and challenging action RPG set in a heavily atmospheric sci-fi universe where the line between science and occultism is blurred. Once a pinnacle of human achievement, the Irid Novo space station has fallen. Its ruins are now overrun by cruel interdimensional entities acting as puppets of the malevolent Cosmic Gods.

You have been created by the Author, organically printed on Irid Novo, and sent on a mission to investigate the unholy series of events that led to the catastrophic incident known as the Merge.

Features:

  • Irid Novo is a massive interconnected world full of mysteries, hidden passages, and secrets within secrets – all for you to explore in any order you like. More dread and shivers await you as you travel deeper into the darkest corner of this forsaken colony.
  • Dozens of melee and ranged weapons and armor pieces to suit your playstyle. Every weapon has unique special abilities that unlock the more you fight with them.
  • A fascinating new sci-fi universe reminiscent of classic sci-fi movies, set in the aftermath of a massive quantum cataclysm and complete with a deep lore and goosebump-inducing soundtrack.
  • The space station orbits in real-time around an ominous black hole that triggers dynamic events such as boss appearances, horde assaults, as well as modified enemy stats and positions.
  • If you are struggling, start a couch co-op session or call for assistance online. The entire game can be completed uninterrupted in co-op, with all loot being shared between both players.

  1. It helps when you don’t [URL=’https://www.reuters.com/article/us-google-stadia/google-to-shut-down-internal-stadia-game-development-studios-idUSKBN2A13QB’]cancel your own studio[/URL] and [URL=’https://www.polygon.com/2021/2/8/22272284/terraria-google-stadia-canceled-developer-locked-out’]crap on existing developers[/URL].

    I still think in 3 years this will get the typical Google heave ho. If you didn’t have to buy the game just for Stadia, or if the license transfered to some other existing service after purchase, that would be a much easier pill to swallow. But now, when Google decides to axe this, your just assed out.

  2. Yeah likely nothing I will ever play. I have touched my Stadia exactly 3 times since I got it in Dec…. I do want to finish Cyberpunk on it but I want more patches before I blow any more time on that.
