Well, we made it, 2021 has arrived. 2020 was a year partly defined by the separation of friends and loved ones for many people around the world. Co-op video games became a core component in keeping family and friends together during one of the most trying years in recent memory.

Until that time comes, 2021 is looking to have a wealth of games that will keep parties going for months to come. Here are the best co-op games coming out in 2021!
Note: This list only contains games with confirmed 2021 released dates.
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition
The much lauded beat-em up based on the Bryan Lee O’Malley comic is making its return this month. Originally released in 2010 to celebrate the release of the feature film, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game was received very well when it released over 10 years ago. The game has been unavailable for some time, even digitally, due to licensing. Well to mark the 10 year anniversary, Ubisoft is releasing Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition which finally includes online co-op.
Heavily inspired by classic beat-em ups like River City Ransom and Streets of Rage, up to four players can beat the snot of Ramona’s exes and their goons in an drop-in, drop-out co-op. The original DLC content, Knives Chau and Wallace Wells, will be included in the complete edition. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition will be available on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Stadia on Jan. 14, 2021.
