It’s not worth waiting for something incredible in multiplayer games from April 2021 – it will be a rather quiet month for releases. If not for the past transfer of Outriders, we would have been completely left without high-budget blockbusters. Of course, it is also worth keeping in mind that some developers announce dates literally a few days before the release, so maybe this month will surprise us with something else. In the meantime, let’s see what famous games gamers will be playing in April 2021.

Century: Age of Ashes is a free-to-play multiplayer dragon battle action game. The game offers three different modes, three classes of riders with their own abilities and rich customization.
