We're still in a fairly relaxed period for new PC game releases. Delays caused by Covid-19 (and other things) have pushed a number of games to later this year, or all the way into 2022. For example, Civilization-like grand strategy game Humankind was going to release in April, but won't be out till August as the studio works on addressing feedback from beta tests.

There are plenty of reasons to keep our video card drivers updated this April and May, though, with a lot of the bigger stuff coming in May: Resident Evil Village, the remastered Mass Effect trilogy, and Arkane's next game, Deathloop. Not a bad lineup, particularly for those who are partial to singleplayer games. (The Mass Effect games alone could last an easygoing player for a few months.)

Here are the 20 games we're most looking forward to in April and May, followed by a few coming in June and July:
