2021 - Looking Ahead: The future is here

High-speed, 5G Internet and Hitman in VR, 2021 promises a lot of upgrades in technology and games

Horizon Forbidden West

Horizon Forbidden West

Horizon was one of those classic games that you just needed to play on the PS4. This year, we will see the next installment in the series. We once again join Aloy as she explores the Forbidden West. You will encounter new tribes and heal the world which is heading into another extinction. The Open World for this game will be bigger than the last. It will feature lush forests, sunken cities and new dangers that will challenge Aloy every step of the way.

Hitman 3

Our favourite assassin Agent 47 will be back this year with some ingenious ways to kill his target. This is the conclusion to the World of Assassination trilogy, and it promises to be better than the previous two games. Not only that, players can play all the locations from Hitman 1 and 2, provided they have the game. You can even carry forward your progress from Hitman 2 directly into the new game. There is also talk of being able to play the entire game in VR, which should be interesting if you have the requisite gear.

Snapdragon 888

Snapdragon 888

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 will be the powerhouse of choice for most flagships this year. It comes with several nifty features. In the camera department, it can support 4K recording and playback at 120FPS, it could also capture 4K footage from up to three cameras on the phone at the same time. For gaming, the chip will support 144hz at 144fps. Not to mention 5G support, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2. All this, while improving battery life.

Starlink

Starlink

Starlink is Elon Musk`s Internet venture that will provide high-speed Internet to you via satellite, no matter where you are. The service is capable of providing speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second. Of course, there is no word on the pricing structure for India. For North America, where it is being rolled out in phases, the price is $99 a month with an upfront payment for the necessary equipment. There are reports that they will be rolling out the service to the rest of the world next year. Musk is already in talks with the Indian government to get regulatory approval by the middle of this year. Fingers crossed, that it will happen and the pricing is a little more aggressive here, than it is in the US.

Gran Turismo 7

Gran Turismo 7

The beautiful car simulation will come out with its seventh edition this year, bringing its 22 years` experience to the game with hyperrealistic classic vehicles and tracks from its rich history in this version. You can tune, customise and improve your driving skills through this entire game. Bonus points to you if you also have a force feedback steering set.
