Game releases – May 2021

April had some amazing games for us, with Returnal and MLB The Show being released mid and end April there was something to look forward to. However, with Returnal being released just a few days ago, it’s already time to look to the upcoming games of May! We have to wait a week before the first big game will be released, but it’s definitely worth the wait. We are talking about Resident Evil Village.

Resident Evil Village.

Like most Resident Evil games Resident Evil Village is a first-person survival horror game. This time the setting is based on an explorable village. The first Resident Evil dates back to 1993 when developers wanted to create a game based on the game Sweet Home. Intentionality the game would be called Biohazard. However, it turned out to be difficult to secure the rights of the name. A contest was held among company personnel to choose a new name, which came out as Resident Evil.

Resident Evil Village had multiple predecessors so we are very curious how we will experience the newest game!

A long time PC game, released with early access in 2013 on Steam and received its full release in the beginning of 2018, comes to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox one series! Rust is an online multiplayer video game where the whole mission is to survive. Not only you’ve to survive the wildlife, also other players in the open world could cause some danger. We are really curious how the game will feel on the new consoles. Rust will be released on the 21st of May 2021.

The two featured games are both survival games, but are so different from each other that they cannot be compared. Nevertheless, there are also other genres that will be released this month such as action role-playing games and life simulation games / adventure games.
