One of the more unique games released this year is Deathloop. You take on the role of Colt, who is an assassin stuck in a time loop. Your mission is to seek out and kill 8 Visionaries across the island before the clock strikes midnight.

Resident Evil Village
The eighth installment in the legendary Resident Evil franchise, Village is the sequel to 2017’s Biohazard. You control Ethan Winters as he searches for his kidnapped daughter after a fatal encounter with Chris Redfield.
Retaining the first-person perspective we have come to expect from the series, the game is more action-focused. The setting is also incredibly creepy yet beautiful, as it resembles the Victorian era in Eastern Europe. Village is engaging, scary, and worthy of the franchise it is a part of making it one of the best PC games.
Control centers around the Federal Bureau of Control, a secret branch of the US Government, which examines and contains all phenomena against reality’s rules and laws.
Control is a unique twist on a genre that is already so popular and entertaining.

You can also collect mundane objects which all hold special powers from different periods and dimensions.

Recently released in mid-August, Humankind allows you to control a civilization as they grow, expand and develop across six different significant eras of human society. Fans of Sid Meier’s Civilization will feel right at home playing Humankind.
What sets Humankind apart from other games in this genre is that at the start of each new era, the players can choose one out of ten civilization types based on historical societies, which they will use to further their community. The choice will have benefits and disadvantages, and considering there are so many options to choose from; there will be access to a million different civilization patterns.
Chivalry 2 is Call of Duty but in Medieval times. This hack-and-slash game allows players to pick from several weapons such as long swords, hammers, or battle axes. Players must kill opponents, block attacks, and be aware of friendly fire because an ill-timed sword swing can take the head off of a teammate.
You can also play a few different modes, such as team deathmatch, a 64-player objective-based mode, and a free-for-all mode. There is also a unique castle-storming mode where attackers are pitched against defenders in a fight to the death.
Valheim is an open-world sandbox game based on the Vikings. Players are sent to Valheim, a world where Vikings have to prove their worth before making it to Valhalla. You start with nothing, and you have to explore the world, collect objects and materials and defeat enemies to survive.
