  • Gamers have plenty to look forward to during the second half of 2021, with a host of eagerly awaited titles set to be launched before the end of the year.

    With the new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S continuing to fly off the shelves, the gaming industry boom is showing no signs of slowing down.

    Much like the excitement generated in the online gambling community by the LeoVegas Welcome Bonus, many of the upcoming releases will spark massive enthusiasm amongst gaming fans.

    Read on as we take a closer look at the best PS and Xbox games scheduled for release during the second half of the year.

    Battlefield 2042

    Set to be released during October, Battlefield 2042 will be the next edition of EA DICE’s enthralling first-person shooter series.

    DICE is going large on multiplayer for the new release, with a maximum of 128 players set to be allowed to play in a match.

    The game will feature seven maps, each of which will be set in different locations including French Guinea and Antarctica.

    Battlefield 2024 will feature 10 specialist playable soldiers when it is launched, each of which have their own features to facilitate different playing styles.

    Forza Horizon 5

    Forza Horizon 5 has been tipped to beat Forza Motorsport 8 to market, with the open-world racing game due to be launched on November 9.

    The game takes place exclusively in Mexico, which will provide a stunning backdrop if the official gameplay demo is anything to go by.

    Environments include a volcano, canyons, beaches, deserts, jungles and ruins, all of which will severely test your driving ability.

    Dynamic weather effects and seasons are also included, meaning that the tests evolve significantly as you navigate through the game.

    Dying Light 2

    In terms of new titles that are being eagerly awaited, Dying Light 2 is probably the release that will generate the most excitement amongst gamers.

    The first edition was on the biggest success stories in 2015, outselling Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Grand Theft Auto V in the United States.

    The new game is set 15 years after the first, and features one human settlement still fighting to survive in a hugely infected world.

    Dying Light 2 features a new protagonist – Aiden Caldwell – who parkours his way around the map on a mission to kill zombies.

    Halo Infinite

    Originally scheduled to be released last Christmas as an Xbox Series X launch title, the follow up to Halo 5 was pushed back to this year to allow developers more time to fine tune the game.

    Halo Infinite promises to have a more open world look, with the environment expected to be several times larger than the last two Halo editions combined.

    Classic modes such as Oddball and Capture the Flag and Oddball are featured, while the multiplayer mode look hugely exciting.

    Multiplayer is also expected to include a battle pass system and new customisation options which will greatly enhance the gameplay experience.
