Best Upcoming Mobile Games That You Must Know
Are you looking to find out the best upcoming mobile games? This article will provide you with some of the most hotly anticipated games that are coming out on mobile in 2021.
Mobile gaming is absolutely huge. There are 2.51 billion mobile gamers around the world and this is predicted to increase hugely. 2020 was a big year for mobile games, because the global coronavirus pandemic forced people to spend more time isolating alone, the number of gamers increased drastically. So much so that from February to March in 2020, the amount of gamers around the world increased by 42%.
Another big aspect of mobile gaming is the people who play it. The demographics don’t fit what you might stereotypically consider when you think about a ‘gamer’. Here’s some examples for you. Over half of all mobile gamers are over the age of 34 and 63% of mobile gamers are women.
So with that information in mind, let’s look at some of the most anticipated mobile games of 2021.
Apex Legends Mobile
Apex Legends is a very popular game outside of mobile, so much so that EA and Respawn entertainment made the decision to bring it over to mobile. Apex Legends is a battle royale style game, with a sci-fi theme. The release date is still to be announced, but is hotly anticipated for 2021.
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Remastered Edition
Final Fantasy is a huge franchise that has a long gaming lineage. The first version of the Crystal Chronicles was published in 2003 on the GameCube. In bringing the game back to audiences on mobile, there will be a lot of updates. Characters will have their voices redone, there will be a 4 player multiplayer mode, as well as cross-functional gameplay. Alongside this, the game will look and play slightly differently, with new bosses, dungeons, and skins available.
League of Legends: Wild Rift
League of Legends has an almost cult following of players, the game’s publisher’s Riot will hope that Wild Rift will break them onto mobile and capitalise on the huge market they have yet to tap into. League of Legends: Wild Rift features a lot of similarities to the games already released in other formats, following the 5v5 model, with controls adapted to mobile. This game has actually been released already recently, after being in beta for a very long time. But it’s still been included in this list because of the potential for it over the next year.
Assassin’s Creed: Blood Sail
Assassin’s Creed: Blood Sail is the non-official successor of the PC game Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag. It will be using much of the same ship mechanics and settings that the PC version created the groundwork for. The game is also built on the Unreal Engine 4, which means the graphics are likely to look exceptionally good. The game was initially targeted towards Asian markets, but recently it looks like Ubisoft might be eyeing up Western markets as well.
Warhammer: Odyssey will be making full use of the massive universe and lore of the Warhammer world. The game will be set on the New World continent, between Drakwalk and Marienburg. In terms of plot, there hasn’t been much given away yet, but it will centre around the moon of Chaos Morrslib. When playing, there will be a few different classes you can choose from, including an elf archmage, witch hunter, warrior priest, and gnome engineer.
The game currently doesn’t have a release date, but it is believed to be in the early stages of 2021. If you’d like to pre-register, you’ll be kept up to date of all the latest developments.
Path of Exile Mobile
The developers of Path of Exile, Grinding Gear Games, are working on an experimental version of their hugely successful game for mobile. They state that the Atlas Map system they use is extremely well suited to mobile gameplay, offering a complete gaming experience. For those worried about the game monetising on a pay-to-win model, do not worry as no elements like this are being included.
Mobile Gaming is hugely popular around the world. Above are some of the most hotly anticipated games coming up for the next year, but keep an eye out for what’s on offer. The market is so huge, amazing games are always coming out that are suited for all different types of people and game play tastes.
