Coming up: The games of April 2021

A solid month, April 2021 brings big names like Star Wars: Republic Commando, MLB The Show, Oddworld: Soulstorm, and more.


Kind of odd for April, but there’s a pretty nice selection of great looking titles arriving on consoles and the PC this month. That’s a mini-tidal wave that’s actually already begun too, with Outriders.

Square Enix’ FPS has been a long time coming, having missed its original late-2020 launch remember. It seems like it’s having a bunch of technical issues now that it’s finally out too, but nevertheless if you were waiting for it, it’s here. Again though, there’s much more.

MLB The Show makes its multi-console debut (it’s on Xbox now), Star Wars: Republic Commando makes its remastered return, New Pokemon Snap shoots the Switch, and Oddworld: Soulstorm brings the sequel that was originally envisioned to life. Lots to pick from, and as usual probably not enough time to play it all.

Scroll down and see the highlights of what’s new.


  • Star Wars: Republic Commando – PS4, Switch
  • Lost Words: Beyond the Page – PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC
  • Oddworld: Soulstorm – PS4, PS5, PC


  • MLB The Show 21 – PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S


  • Returnal – PS5
