The Games of Winter 2021

It’s official: we’re in the thick of the wintertime doldrums. Depending on where in the world you live, you may be facing chilly winter weather, a continued pandemic lockdown, or both at once. But you’ve also got… games! Brand new tabletop and video game experiences to sharpen your brain and expand your imagination.

Some fantastic games have already kept us company in 2021, from Hitman 3 to Cyber Shadow to Dyson Sphere Program. Several more games are on the horizon, like Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury on Feb. 12, Persona 5 Strikers on Feb. 23, Monster Hunter Rise on March 26, and many more. That’ll help us all push through these last two months, watching the days get longer and the world get brighter.

Take our mittened hand and let Polygon’s Winter Games package for 2021 guide you through the playground of wintertime games — what’s great, what’s not, and what exciting features await you in the games coming out in February and March.
