February to be hot with new video game releases
Next month could be a good month to stay indoors playing new games
If the weather in the U.S. in any indication, February could be a cold month. It might be better to spend time indoors, and a slew of video games are going to be released that will make passing the time a little more enjoyable. At least eight new titles are scheduled to be released, giving video game fans hundreds of hours of game time.
The first to be released is Wargroove, which is expected to come out tomorrow. It is developed by Chucklefish and is a turn-based strategy game that pits armies against each other on a grid-based battlefield. It will be available for the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Next up will be Crackdown 3, which is coming to Xbox One and PCs. It will be released on February 15 and is a continuation of the Crackdown video game that was available when the Xbox 360 was still a popular device. Crackdown 2 didn’t do so well in the markets, but the new sequel should be better and will be free for Xbox Game Pass subscribers. Players can play as a superhuman agent hunting down criminals and includes explosive weaponry, a serious amount of combat and lots of upgrades.
Also to be released on February 15 is Far Cry New Dawn. It’s coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, and is a sequel to Far Cry 5 launched last year. It includes many of the same characteristics, but carries on after the apocalyptic ending of Far Cry 5.
The third game to be released on February 15 is Metro: Exodus. It will also be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and is the third entry in the Metro series. It follows Artyom, the main character of the first two games, as he continues his escapades in a post-apocalyptic world. Compared to previous versions, it is an open-world game, which should add an additional element of excitement, and possibly surprise, to the game.
Rounding out the February releases is Anthem. This game will be launched on February 22 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and is a multiplayer, co-op shooter game that takes place in an alien world. The game is being developed by BioWare – the same company that created Mass Effect – and should capitalize on the science fiction the company loves to include in its games.
