Top 10 New PC Games For May 2021

The great video game drought of 2021 is coming to an end, as there are more than enough new video games coming out in May. We’ve whittled it down to the 10 new PC games out this month that are shaping up to be worth your attention and cash. So, I guess you’re wondering what are the best PC games coming out in May 2021? Well, after months of Lady Dimitrescu getting people hot under the collar, Resident Evil Village finally comes out on May 7th. And, while Anthem failed to catch on with the masses, Mass Effect Legendary Edition could turn out to be the perfect game to get BioWare fans back on side. Look, let’s just dive in, shall we? Here are our top 10 new PC games for May 2021. What are you looking forward to playing? Let us know in the comments.

So what new games are coming out in May? On top of the two biggies – Resident Evil Village and Mass Effect Legendary Edition – Biomutant is one I’ve been keeping a close eye on for years, so I’m really hoping it lives up to the hype. It’ll be interesting to see how motorcycle open-world game Days Gone fares, because if it does well then we may see even more PlayStation games making the jump to PC. Similarly, if Shin Megami Tensei 3 turns out to be a commercial hit, we may get more Persona and SMT on PC. We’re hoping, at least!

As well as all that, when it comes to new PC games, Knockout City and Hood Outlaws and Legends are your two multiplayer standouts. They’re very different from each other: one is an arcadey dodgeball ball game, while the other is a PvEvP heist affair. And after two years in Early Access, Subnautica Below Zero is finally reaching 1.0. Don’t forget about the smaller indie titles: King Of Seas is worth watching if you’re a big Sea of Thieves fan, and The Longest Road On Earth is a game for those seeking a little calm right now.

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 cracking new PC games on the horizon.

    Ooooh matron.

  2. Aurinkohirvi on May 2, 2021 at 10:10 pm

    Mass Effect Legendary Edition – Never bought the original games. Now that seems a good thing, because this will be even better.

  3. keatsiannightingale on May 2, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    Hood Outlaws and Legends looks very interesting, I had no idea of its existence!

  4. Fallout2Forever on May 2, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    Can anyone tell me what else is coming out this month that I should look forward to? Was hoping for some more titles from this video that are more off the radar, and I knew about every Single player game on this list already outside of The Longest Road on Earth.

  5. Haunted Jerusalem on May 2, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    What about Of Bird And Cage?!?!

  6. DJCR33P on May 2, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    Can’t wait for Shin Megami Tensai 3 Nocturne HD remaster 2…

  7. Mike C on May 2, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Always appreciate the monthly check-ins on what’s coming out soon. I, for one, will play the absolute shit out of Days Gone and Bio-mutant.

  8. Specific Pickle on May 2, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    Woo very informative Thanks

  9. Aurinkohirvi on May 2, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    King of Seas – Oh how long I’ve waited for better Sid Meier’s Pirates! I don’t know if this is one, I doubt it, but always interested in tall ships pirate games. Gonna check the more in depth trailers.

  10. Glandor on May 2, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    King is Seas is giving off big Sid Meiers Pirates vibes

  11. Aurinkohirvi on May 2, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Resident Evil Village – Well, it’s Resident Evil, so I probably get this one too.
    And if it gets similar fan made outfit (and no outfit) packs as Resident Evil 2 and 3, Hell yeah, I’m definitely getting it.

  12. J Dubs C on May 2, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    After so many ‘hype’ "AAA" games, I’ve lost faith in Biomutant.
    I hope its an amazing Bioware style RPG with ACTUAL repercussions to overall story.

  13. Stefan-Catalin Anton on May 2, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    Please, can you tell me how is called the music that you are using in the intro and outro of the video? Please?

  14. Aurinkohirvi on May 2, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    Dunno if this month, but I need to do PC upgrade. And it’s a bad time doing it seeing how much parts have got more expensive. But Mount and Blade Bannerlord is the number 1 (been playing M&B Warband a LOT now).
    And Horizon Zero Dawn complete edition is number 2.

  15. The Algerian on May 2, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    This month? I doubt I’ll buy anything.
    I haven’t even gotten around to play RE7, yet, so I’m clearly not about to buy REVIIlage anytime soon, for instance.
    I’ve got so many good games I’ve yet to finish and so many good games that you can’t even finish, I’m starting to have a real hard time catching up.
    PES alone has been eating up a lot of my playtime lately.

  16. Federico Nadur on May 2, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    Biomutant looks so good and unique

  17. Lalitendu Das on May 2, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    The game I’m most excited for in May is the next Mystery Steam Review!!

  18. Chocolatier on May 2, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    Is a good month

  19. Jack Crowther on May 2, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    Two Punto mentions in one video, what more can you ask for?

  20. Daniel Thakorlal on May 2, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    Great vid, keep ’em comin’.
    What games are shown in the Intro? What’s the game at 00.50??

  21. Night Cat on May 2, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    Hmm, had no idea that King Of Seas existed but it looks like it could be fun (though I hate that portrait art).

  22. Sentegraphs on May 2, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Also, I think Solasta: Crown of the Magister is releasing version 1.0 in May. I’ve had a pretty good time with the EA version, and, while it’s definitely a little rough around the edges, it should provide a great budget alternative at $40.

  23. Hein Smit on May 2, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Quite excited for the PC version of Days Gone, quite enjoyed that. Resi8 and Biomutant are the most anticipated new releases for me

  24. houdinimachine on May 2, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    No idea how I’m going to find time for both ME Legendary Edition AND Nocturne, but I’m going to do it.

  25. cheese on May 2, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    one more week till re village
