Monster Hunter Rise (PC) – January 12th

Monster Hunter Rise was released on the Nintendo in early 2021, now it is set to be released on PC on January 12th, which will see the game receive enhanced graphics and performance capabilities when compared to the Switch’s 30fps gameplay. Monster Hunter Rise is the first entry in the series to be released following the hugely popular Monster Hunter World, which went on to become the best-selling Capcom game of all time with 17.1 million copies sold, beating out Street Fighter 2’s 27-year long record.

God Of War (PC) – January 14th

God of War is not only one of the most highly regarded games released in 2018, but one of the most beloved games of all time, with the game receiving a score of 94/100 on Metacritic. Now, God of War will finally be receiving a PC port after many months of rumors and speculation. With the game being on PC it will be able to be played in up to 4K and at a frame rate above 60 for the first time, as well as ultra-wide 21:9 support, making this the definitive way to play the game going forward.

Rainbow Six: Extraction (PC/PS4/PS5/Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S/Google Stadia/Amazon Luna) – January 20th

After many months of delays, the next installment in the Rainbow Six franchise, titled Rainbow Six: Extraction, is finally set to be released on January 20th. Originally due to be released in 2020, the game has been pushed back multiple times due to delays in development caused by the pandemic. Rainbow Six: Extraction is based on the popular limited-time mode Outbreak from Rainbow Six: Siege, which sees players take on aliens. It should be an interesting take on the series and help push it in a new direction and we’re excited to see whether it is a good move for the franchise or not.

Blackwind (PC/PS4/PS5/Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S/Nintendo Switch) – January 20th

Blackwind is a top-down Sci-Fi game that should be a change of pace when compared to the other games on this list. Players take control of a teenager trapped inside a prototype battle armor suit during an alien invasion. Blackwind looks like it should be very hectic with lots of running and gunning as players take down hordes of aliens. This is certainly a game to keep your eye on next month.

Uncharted: Legacy Of Thieves Collection (PC/PS5) – January 28th

The Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection will bring Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy to both PC and PS5, offering improved visuals and performance when compared to their original PS4 releases. Uncharted 4 won over 150 Game of the Year awards, making it a must-play title for anyone that didn’t play it during its original release, and if you did play it then now is a perfect excuse to play it again.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus (Nintendo Switch) – January 28th

It has only been two months since the last Pokemon game was released, the generation 4 remakes Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and now Nintendo is gearing up to release a whole new adventure, once again in the Sinnoh region but many years in the past, with the region being based on 19th century Japan. Players will be able to choose from Rowlet (from Pokemon Sun and Moon), Cyndaquil (from Pokemon Gold and Silver), and Oshawott (from Pokemon Black and White) as their starter Pokemon, making this the first time that starter Pokemon from other titles will be available together. It will be an interesting take on the Pokemon series and something we’ve never seen before, so we’re excited to see the game in action next month.
