aIt’s a lot to choose from when it comes to military war games. There are a lot of new ones each year, as well as some that are still popular. It’s not easy to pick just a few video game titles, but in 2021, there are some games that are either going to be released or that have a lot of people interested in them. A few games we think you should keep an eye out for this year, or ones that you can try right away.
Release Date: August 16, 2021
Sprocket is slightly different in terms of some other games on this list. Players are given a tank to design and put together in this title. Essentially, you have the tools to make tanks designed to your liking. Everything from the hull, armor design, cannon, tracks, engine, exhausts, vents, and more can be tweaked. Fortunately, it’s not all about just design, as you can also jump in and compete in different scenarios. In that case, it becomes a tank battle simulator. Right now, this is an early access title, so you can expect some bugs and updates as the developers introduce new features.

In War Thunder, players don’t fight each other as soldiers on the ground. Instead, they fight each other with different vehicles. Many different types of cars and trucks can be found here for players to get in and drive. Players will be able to choose from tanks, naval warships, and planes that can be used in a wide range of situations. So not only does it have a lot of content and DLC for players to pick up, but it also has a lot of people who play it. The game is free to play, so there’s no reason not to try it out today.
When it comes to the game modes, some modes break up the different types of vehicles that players can use, whether they want a more arcade-like experience or more realistic battles, to more historic missions that try to give a little more of a sense of what happened in the past. You might be interested in World of Warships and World of Tanks, which are both vehicle-based military war games. Players will be able to drive different types of cars and trucks in these games, as the names of the games show

People were on edge during the Cold War because they thought about World War III. The game WARNO shows us what a World War III might have looked like. This is an RTS game, and we’re following a battle between NATO and the Warsaw Pact when the tensions get too high. If you play this game, you’ll be in charge of hundreds of different historical units, like tanks or helicopters, as you lead them into battle. There are a lot of scripted scenarios that you can go through when you’re not playing in a competitive game. If you want to play the full version of the WARNO game, you’ll have to wait. As of right now, you can get early access to WARNO through the Steam game store. The game will get more updates as the developers keep working on it, so that means you can expect more changes to come to the game.

World War I video games don’t come out very often, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to pick up and play a few in 2021. This is one of the video game titles that you should buy. Tannenberg is one of the games made by M2H, the same company that made Verdun. Tannenberg first came out in 2019 but it only came out on consoles last year, 2020. During this game, we’re going through the Tannenberg battle, which took place in East Prussia in 1914. Russia and Germany fought each other there.
Almost like Verdun, the game’s developers were trying to make it more realistic with things like weapons, uniforms, and, of course, the environment in which players would fight. M2H has just released their most recent game, but people who want more WWI military action gameplay should check out Verdun, which is from the same company.

Genre : Real-time strategy
Defcon is a game that was made after taking some ideas from the 1980s movie Wargames. In this game, you play as a General who is hidden somewhere deep underground in a bunker. As you look at this old computer screen, you’ll be able to see what’s going on around the world. In this game, players are building up their forces so they can send out tactical strikes on other continents.
If you don’t have enough firepower to make a dent in the military power of the other side, you might not be able to take them out with a barrage of attacks or even a nuclear strike. This is a real-time strategy game. However, if you don’t have enough resources on hand when you deal with an attack, it may be hard to come back from the counter-attack. With all that said, this game is all about making sure that you’re the last one standing with the fewest civilian casualties.
Best Sci-Fi Game: The Coalition Gears of War 4
Fast paced, exciting, and at all odds against a swarm of aliens, Gears of War 4 is the best sci-fi war game experience that you can find on the Xbox One. The fourth game in the critically acclaimed Gears of War series lets you play as Marcus Fenix’s son. Marcus was the main character in the older games.
Gears of War 4 is an over-the-shoulder third-person shooter with beautiful visuals and set pieces. There is always some kind of action going on. Players must work together to fight off hordes of aggressive aliens with weapons like chainsaws, explosive drills, and machine guns. If you want to fight aliens with a friend, Gears of War 4 has both a co-op story mode that you can play online or offline with someone else.
Best Sniper Game: Rebellion Developments Sniper Elite 4
Build from scratch, Sniper Elite 4 is the best Xbox One sniper game to date. It was made from the ground up. Players take on the role of an elite sniper team in World War II. They look over the beautiful landscapes of Italy for high-value “axis of evil” targets.
Is not just a game where you point and shoot. It’s more about tactical espionage than a game where you point, scope, and shoot. Players must rely on stealth and extraction missions to make sure that even the last enemy combatant isn’t aware of your mass killings. If you and your friend want to play together, there’s a cooperative multiplayer campaign mode. You can also play against other people in the game’s online mode. Sniper Elite 4 has very detailed x-ray kill cams, so you can see in slow motion how each shot destroys the human body and how it looks in real time.
