August 2021 not only marks the end of summer, but brings with it new games, some of which are highly anticipated. First of all, of course, we are talking about the MMORPG New World, which has been in development for quite a long time. However, in addition to new items from Amazon, several other projects will be released this month. In this article, we will tell you about all the multiplayer games, as well as those with multiplayer, which will be released in August 2021.

Blade & Soul 2

  • Release date: August (South Korea)
  • Genre: MMORPG
  • Platforms: iOS, Android, PC (via Purple emulator)
  • Modes: PVE, PVP
  • Localization: None
  • Price: Free

The sequel to the popular MMORPG Blade & Soul will be released in August in South Korea. Initially, the release was supposed to take place back in May, but the game was postponed. The second part is a mobile project for iOS and Android, and PC users, if they wish, can play through the proprietary Purple emulator application. A global release is also expected in the future.

Blade & Soul 2 is a massive open-world MMORPG that is constantly action-packed and influenced by players. An important role should be played by NPCs, which they promise to make an important part of the ecosystem. Of the interesting features, it is worth highlighting the learning monsters, whose behavior patterns change depending on the player’s actions. There will also be a classless system in the game, allowing players to switch to any weapon, thereby gaining a specific set of skills.

Hunter’s Arena: Legends

  • Release date: August 3
  • Genre: Battle Royale
  • Platforms: PC, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5
  • Modes: PVP
  • Localization: None
  • Price: 435 rubles (Steam), Unknown (PlayStation Store), free for PlayStation Plus subscribers.

The release of Hunter’s Arena: Legends in Early Access took place on July 15, 2020 on PC, but a full release is expected on August 3. On the same day, the game will appear for the first time on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles, and immediately in the PlayStation Plus subscription. Cross-platform multiplayer support is promised, allowing PC and console owners to play together.

Hunter’s Arena: Legends is another battle royale game that offers several characters to choose from with unique features. The battles take place mainly in close combat, and the gameplay is focused on air combos and competent counterattacks. There is also an Arena mode.

Unfortunately, the project did not find popularity among PC gamers, so the online environment leaves much to be desired. However, with the release on consoles from Sony there is a small chance that there will be more players at least for a while.

Bless unleashed

  • Release date: August 6
  • Genre: MMORPG
  • Platforms: PC (out now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One)
  • Modes: PVE, PVP
  • Localization: None
  • Price: Free

The word Bless has long turned into some kind of meme. It is not surprising, because the game was restarted several times under different types. On August 6, the MMORPG Bless Unleashed will be released on PC, which was previously only available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. The developers have performed several tests and are now ready to present a complete product.

For those in the tank: Bless Unleashed is not the same Unreal Engine 3 game originally released. The project was created on the fourth version of the engine and offers a completely different gameplay. The action takes place in a parallel universe, so players will be able to meet familiar characters and visit famous places, but the plot will be different. The last beta turned out to be successful, judging by the number of participants, but whether the game will be able to retain an audience after the release – as always, only time will tell.

Icarus: First Cohort

  • Release date: August 11
  • Genre: Survival Simulator
  • Platforms: PC
  • Modes: PVE
  • Localization: None
  • Price: 515 rubles (Steam)

DayZ creator Dean Hall has been working on the new Icarus survival simulator for a long time. The game will be released in three parts, each of which will offer unique features. The first part, called First Cohort, is expected on August 11 on PC.

Unlike many other representatives of the genre, Icarus is a session-based survival simulator. This means that players will have a pre-allocated time during which they must complete all the objectives in order to fly off the planet. However, there will be a separate sandbox mode, where no one limits you in time.

Naraka: Bladepoint

  • Release date: 12 August
  • Genre: Battle Royale
  • Platforms: PC
  • Modes: PVP
  • Localization: Text only
  • Price: 1199 rubles (Steam)

Naraka: Bladepoint is another battle royale coming out in August. The game will go on sale on August 12 and will be sold for 1199 rubles. At the last open beta, which was available to everyone, there was an extremely high online, but it is difficult to say whether the project will be very popular, given the price.

In Naraka: Bladepoint, you choose one of several characters with different abilities and fight on the big map to the last survivor. The game features various melee and ranged weapons, as well as the ability to quickly move around the terrain, thanks to parkour and grappling hook.

Humankind

  • Release date: August 17
  • Genre: Strategy
  • Platforms: PC
  • Modes: PvE, PVP

  • Price: 2739 rubles (Steam, Epic Games Store)

AMPLITUDE Studios, known for the Endless series, is about to release a new game called Humankind. This 4X strategy comes out on August 17th for PC after a series of transfers.

As in the popular Civilization series, Humankind will take players through the development of human civilization from the Bronze Age through four different eras. The game features 60 different cultures that actually existed on Earth, as well as several branches of development, urban planning using terrain, military action and diplomacy functions with trade.

New world

  • Release date: August 31
  • Genre: MMORPG
  • Platforms: PC
  • Modes: PvE, PVP
  • Localization: None
  • Price: 1299 rubles (Steam, Epic Games Store)

Finally, we got to perhaps the most anticipated game of the month – New World. This MMORPG will be released on August 31st on PC and will be sold on Steam for 1299 rubles. The project has come a long way from an ordinary survival simulator to a full-fledged massively multiplayer online role-playing game. During the tests, the developers made a huge number of changes, including based on user feedback.

New World is developed by Amazon Games on the Lumberyard engine. The game offers a full-fledged non-target combat system with blocks and rolls, excellent graphics and many activities aimed at PvP and PvE. Players can complete tasks, upgrade characters, participate in massive battles with hundreds of people and go through expeditions – local dungeons. The authors promise to support the project after the release by releasing regular updates.
