The end of 2021 is nigh. We’re all getting ready to hunker down and gorge ourselves on heaps of festive foodstuffs and great games before another year of gaming news shows up on our doorstep, commanding our attention like an uproarious, slightly soused relative. While we don’t yet know what 2022 will bring (well, other than Elden Ring), your trusty PCGamesN news crew has been here all year, clad in proudest orange, spelunking deep into the news mines to gather all the biggest stories for you, our lovely readers.
With the year now almost behind us, now’s the time to reflect on the good, the bad, and the ugly of gaming news in 2021. To that end, we’ve fetched a festive feast worth of goodies from the vaults, hitting all the stories that’ll warm your cockles to remember, and some you might have missed along the way.
Starting with news that everyone’s favourite tomb-raiding hero, Indiana Jones, will return to PC courtesy of MachineGames and Bethesda, and rounding off with the arrival of Final Fantasy XIV’s Endwalker expansion (impeccably rendered grapes included), here’s our roundup of this year’s greatest hits. Or, as we prefer, Now, That’s What We Call NEWS 2021!
