January is rarely flooded with new video games, but there are definitely a few PC games you should be keeping on your radar. 10 to be exact! So, let’s take a look at the best PC games coming out in January 2021. Of course, Hitman 3 is the video game that everyone is champing at the bit to play, but don’t forget about Bloober Team’s The Medium or the long-awaited The Yakuza Remastered Collection.

So what new games are coming out in January? As mentioned, IO Interactive’s final entry in their World of Assassination trilogy, Hitman 3, is the big one this month, but The Medium looks like a very interesting idea. PC players have been waiting a long time for some classic Yakuza action, so many will be happy with The Yakuza Remastered Collection finally making its way to PC. And, of course, after seven long years, Scott Pilgrim vs The World is back on digital store shelves.

As well as all that, when it comes to new PC games, Olija looks like an exciting 2D action platformer, Cyber Shadow could be the Ninja Gaiden you’ve wanted for years, and Encodya could be that point-and-click surprise you need to get through the start of 2021.

If you’re wondering what should I buy or what new games can I pick up over the next month, then you’ve come to the right place. Obviously, you should wait for reviews to be sure, but we can confidently say there are some belters on the horizon.

Let us know which PC games coming soon you are excited about. And, of course, for all of your PC gaming needs, keep it on

    Side scrollers and casual games, not my cup of tea. Guess it’s just not my month for a new video game… lol

    It will feel a bit jarring, going from LAD to Yakuza 3, but I’m sure the collection will still be fun. In a way, it will feel a bit like going from Halo 2A to Halo 3 with Halo MCC 😛 .

    Both The Medium and Yakuza Collection are coming directly to Game Pass. That’s what I’ll be on after I finish Like A Dragon.

    why do people make games that look like nintendo nes or an old sega genesis. What is the appeal, is it all nostalgia.

  20. G Kent on October 26, 2021 at 10:19 am

    I am sooo excited for Everspace 2. Love the combat and exploration of the first game, but I’m not the biggest rogue-like fan – this one looks awesome.

  23. Joseph on October 26, 2021 at 10:34 am

    What game is at 0:39? The space game
