All in all, 2020 hasn’t been the best year ever. The whole world has suffered from an outbreak of a worldwide health pandemic and it has changed the way we handle our daily lives. Likewise, the video game industry has been hit by developers having to transition their staff from working under the same roof to handling their projects remotely. As a result, some games have been delayed to launch in 2020, but that means 2021 will be a year filled with video game releases. Here are some of our most anticipated new strategy games due out in 2021.
Star Dynasties – new strategy games
Star Dy Kingdoms is one of the new strategy games from developer studio Pawley Games. This game takes players into a future where humanity has taken over space.
We have mining operations, refueling stations, and task-forces set up to explore more of the wonders beyond our solar system. However, disaster strikes Earth and the planet is no more leaving space-dwellers left without a necessary lifeline. From panic and desperate desire to survive, war broke out with different colonies in space in search of different resources.
It has been many years since the Earth disaster and life in space has normalized. There was a new order and government established with different factions and regimes.
Players will step into the role of a faction leader who must seek survival and prosperity for their people. This is done through many means such as political alliances and strategic moves.
Stronghold: Warlords, a new installment of the classic RTS series is coming in 2020. This time, the game will put players in control of a party inside China set in the 3rd century BC. and would continue until 1200 during the Mongol invasions.
Therefore, the game will focus on city structures to fortify. There will also be a new AI Warlords feature attached to the game, which can hold their own stronghold in battle. We’re still waiting to know more about this game as it was announced during E3 2019, but we do know that despite a standard campaign, players will also have a chance to go head-to-head against other players.
Age of Empires IV
The Age of Empires franchise has been a longstanding video game franchise. We now know that a fourth installment is in the works and we should see it launch at some point in 2021. Unfortunately, that’s all we really know about the game at the time of writing this description.
It’s been a few years since the game was announced, and Microsoft has yet to make any major updates on what we might see with this upcoming installment. For example, the big question we ask is when the game will attract players in terms of settings.
So far, there has been a small trailer showcasing some of the era armies but again, we’ll have to wait for a full announcement on the setting and perhaps what new features will be brought over from Relic.
Evil Genius 2 – new strategy games
Evil Genius 2 is the sequel to the 2004 new strategy games. The series finally got a new chance at providing an IP for fans from Rebellion Developments. This strategy game follows the player through four different demonic geniuses, all of which will have their own unique narrative goals.
In addition to choosing an evil genius to start, the player will be left with building a new lair filled with minions. You’ll need to keep a close eye on activities to make sure your minions are loyal, efficient, and of course not spies. In the end, it was the impetus to build a powerful weapon to take control of the world.
