2020 is about to end, but it is not going to end without a bang. As we enter a new decade, we can expect more eSports games in the market. Today, we will show you the most anticipated updates and new games coming by either the end of 2020 or 2021. These games should be available in your favorite booking channels, such as esports at VulkanBet.
League of Legends: Wild Rift
LoL is currently enjoying a sweet spot as one of the top eSports in the world. The Wild Rift is an expansion that will take the game into the mobile arena. As expected, Wild Rift is going to be a MOBA game that comes from the same developer, Riot Games.
Wild Rift is heavily intended to expand the company’s customer base in the mobile space. How it will fit the eSports industry is still a question, but it is certainly banking on the introduction of 5G technology.
Wild Rift introduces new characters. The initial launch has 40 champions or main characters, but more will come out soon. In this version, the player will still be an unseen summoner of the champion or hero. The player’s task is to develop the champion’s abilities and do battle against others. As always, players can team up, or they can play solo.
Another eSports favourite sequel is finally coming. The first one was an immediate success, and we can expect Overwatch 2 to hit the shelves in 2021.
Overwatch 2 was announced in Blizzcon in 2019. Blizzard was pretty quiet about this for so long but eventually confirmed that a sequel is coming out. Overwatch 2 is expected to be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X, which means that we can all expect better graphics and AI.
If the word on the grapevine is real, we can expect this sequel to be out as early as Christmas of 2020. Whether the release is happening in the holidays or not, we all know that Overwatch League is going to be the format. There are several new heroes and maps coming up, and players will have to spend a lot of time learning the secrets of these characters. The new maps also mean that players have to develop new strategies to win.
There is no doubt that the 2K franchise is one of the best and most popular in eSports. The release of 2K21 is widely anticipated by fans in the United States, Europe, and Asia—places where eSports has the biggest fan bases and participants.
What can we expect from this new release? Initial reviews tell us that all the movements feel smoother than its predecessor. One of the biggest highlights of the game is dribbling. The moves are also improved, and players are going to have to improve their skills to execute these moves.
Also, shooting is an issue. The new game makes it harder to make three-point shots. Based on game sneak peeks, the HUD shows a shooting meter, and this is what makes the shooting more difficult than before.
Perhaps not as popular as the others, Quake has been around for over two decades. It is also a first-person shooting game. This new entry is going to take fans in a wild ride. This time, there is going to be a Quake PRO League, and this is going to run during the QuakeCon 2020. First-person shooting purists will not let this opportunity get past them. It takes some great skills to win in this game, and only veterans are going to bring home the bacon.
This is the next chapter to the franchise, and we can expect to get our hands on it by the end of 2020. This new version was co-developed by 343 Industries, in working relation with SkyBox Labs. Both of these companies are veterans of Halo game development.
It seems like Halo Infinite is going to usher a new era of competitive gaming in the new console generation of Xbox. If this game is worth its salt, it is going to cement its name in the circles of eSports fans. It may even be able to compete against the top favourites right now, such as LoL and Overwatch.
So far, these are the top games that are also the most widely anticipated in the world of eSports. For now, what we can do is to follow the news and wait for the upcoming releases. Once these games are out, we can finally see if they are better than their predecessors and if gamers will welcome them in eSports betting.
