May is here and that means it’s time to tell you what games are coming to your favorite platforms. This month, we get to look forward to Resident Evil Village, Biomutant, Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Subnautica Below Zero and more!

This month has an array of upcoming games. 2021 has given us Lady Dimitrescu, the tall vampire lady that you can see in the Resident Evil Village demo. We’ve seen some Skate City gameplay as well as King of Seas gameplay. If you enjoy a good shmup, try out Raiden IV X Mikado. Coming to Switch this month we have Maneater, The Colonists, the original Subnautica, and Miitopia. Switch is also getting Maneater, the Famicom Detective Club, Aeriel_Knight’s Never Yield, Wanna Survive, and Very Very Valet. Out on PC is An Airport for Aliens Currently Run by Dogs, Wild at Heart, Horse Club Adventure, Highrisers, Grand Casino Tycoon, and the Of Bird and Cage game. For PS5 owners, you can play Warhammer Age of Sigmar Storm Ground, and Hood Outlaws and Legends. Available on Xbox we have Monster Harvest, Rust, and Knockout City. If virtual reality is your thing, check out Demeo on PC VR and the Oculus Quest. Check out Earth Defense Force World Brothers, the Oddworld collection, Weaving Tides, 7 Years From Now, and World’s End Club, all available in May 2021.

    Deathloop would’ve made this list, but we’ll have to wait until September. Hoping the wait will be worth it.

  21. Kei Asai on May 14, 2021 at 4:20 am

  27. Ryuan on May 14, 2021 at 4:25 am

    I’m gonna be a wolf!



  36. Ryan Dumont on May 14, 2021 at 4:38 am

    Super trash games like re village which isn’t scary… hood outlaw and legends with horrible missions and kinda only fun with friends. Game industry looks like it’s going downhill like the movie industry



  37. D. Blade on May 14, 2021 at 4:39 am

    No shin megami tensei 3 nocturne remastered mention? That’s weird



  38. GG RELOADED on May 14, 2021 at 4:42 am

    Where are the good games?



  39. enjii__ on May 14, 2021 at 4:44 am

    none of this looks exciting at all 🙁



  40. PK Starstorm on May 14, 2021 at 4:44 am

    My favorite animal is Maxscoville



  41. Acorn Electron on May 14, 2021 at 4:45 am

    Yay Max vid! IGN are pure fucking it up on YouTube by splitting their audience and then not putting out content for the majority of the split 😂🕹🕹
    We need a show a day and a short a day ign. Surely between the three consoles, upcoming games, let’s plays and hot takes like these you could do that?
    Lucy, Max, Brian, Daemon, Justin, Casey, Seth, Sam, Bec, ZR, Ryan and pretty much everyone we don’t regularly see are criminally underused for stuff like this!

    Anyway try harder IGN I love you 😂🕹



  42. Gamerx 2000 on May 14, 2021 at 4:45 am

    Ign Forget to mention days gone on pc.



  43. Th3Gr8Wr0ggi 1 on May 14, 2021 at 4:46 am

    Biomutant Hype! 🖤



  44. Giorgi khutiashvili on May 14, 2021 at 4:47 am

    Almost all the games suck except one or two.



  45. Ryan Sporer on May 14, 2021 at 4:47 am

    Too many puns, had to turn off.



  46. DanarT_T on May 14, 2021 at 4:48 am

  47. David Marsh on May 14, 2021 at 4:49 am

  48. georgiiii1000 on May 14, 2021 at 4:52 am
