The most anticipated strategies of 2021

2021 is already here, and there are plenty of video games ahead. Therefore, already now it is worth noting for yourself which games to pay attention to when they are released. Let us help you with a selection of the most promising strategies this year.

Songs of Conquest

  • Developer: Lavapotion
  • Publisher: Coffee Stain Publishing
  • Platforms: PC
  • Release date: 2021
  • Cooperative: Yes
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Yes
  • Inspired by the iconic Heroes of Might & Magic and Total War, Songs of Conquest has an eye-catching visual style and an intriguing array of gameplay mechanics.

The developers promise to explore the world, develop the kingdom, create huge armies and study destructive spells. Players will mine resources and gold, fight monsters, pump heroes and test different strategies to destroy opponents.

The game does not have a release date yet, but it is clearly worth the wait and will probably live for a very long time – at least thanks to local and online multiplayer, as well as a level editor and mod support.


King’s Bounty II

Developer: 1C Entertainment
Publisher: 1C Entertainment
Platforms: PC
Release date: 24 Aug 2021
Cooperative: No
Competitive Multiplayer: No

The long-awaited sequel to the King’s Bounty series is just around the corner. The sequel will be larger, more detailed and detailed than the previously released games in the line, and will offer players an unforgettable adventure in the fantasy world.

This is a mix of RPG and turn-based strategy, during which you will explore a three-dimensional world and collect an invincible army under your banner. The authors of the game promise a non-linear narrative, deep tactical gameplay, the influence of the landscape, natural and artificial barriers on the development and outcome of the battle, as well as a flexible pumping system. We managed to attend the press preview of the game, and after what we saw we will not look for reasons not to trust the developers.



  • Developer: Amplitude Studios
  • Publisher: Sega
  • Platform: PC
  • Release date: August 17, 2021
  • Cooperative: Yes
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Yes

Humankind is Sega’s new take on the 4X strategy genre, similar to the Civilization series. Here the player must lead the human civilization and lead it through six main eras, starting with the nomadic period. In the process, the player will control the development of his civilization and various improvements as it develops. At the same time, there will be opposing factions in the game, the collision with which will require the use of tactical skills.

For example, players will be able to take advantage of the terrain. In addition, the battles are likely to be relatively fast, since before returning to the global map in battle, you will need to make only three turns. We are very interested in what the gameplay will be like and whether the game will compete with the veterans of the genre.


Blood bowl 3

Developer: Cyanide Studio
Publisher: BigBen Interactive, Nacon
Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, NS
Release date: August 2021
Cooperative: No
Competitive Multiplayer: Yes
Deadly fantasy football in which races of people, orcs, elves and other creatures collide. Here, skirmishes and showdowns with the use of weapons are mixed with the rules of the sports game, to which the referees usually turn a blind eye.

Blood Bowl 3 is a hybrid of a sports team manager and tactical strategy: you have to train your charges, as well as competently place them in the stadium, which will very soon become a battlefield. American football is a rather brutal sport, but it is far from bloody battles in the fantasy league Blood Bowl!


Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground

Developer: Gasket Games
Publisher: Focus Home Interactive
Platforms: PC
Release date: 2021
Cooperative: No
Competitive Multiplayer: Yes
Games Workshop’s strategy game Age of Sigmar is a dark fantasy world in which immortal knights fight Death as they travel between realities.

Players will face a non-linear campaign, during which they will gather an army, overcome many obstacles and challenge a powerful enemy in turn-based battles. In addition to the storyline, the game will also offer competitive multiplayer, allowing you to measure your strength in online battles.This is a serious sci-fi simulator that uses the latest scientific developments and invites players to feel like the engineers of the future. Each playthrough of the game will be unique due to a randomly generated universe, and in addition to addictive gameplay, it will also give a vivid impression of contemplating beautiful space landscapes.


Star dynasties

Developer: Pawley Games
Publisher: Iceberg Interactive
Platforms: PC
Release date: March 16, 2021
Cooperative: No
Competitive Multiplayer: No
Another space strategy, but more ambitious, designed to control galactic empires. Here players will have to steer entire star systems, enjoying an amazing setting, in which sci-fi and the feudal Middle Ages are mixed.

Star Dynasties is reminiscent of the games in the Crusader Kings series – here you have to run not a state, but a dynasty, as a result of which the focus is shifted to relationships between people. Such a “strategic Sims in space” can not help but intrigue, because the project and got a place in our collection.
