The gaming industry has slowed noticeably in the winter months, but in January we can start tuning in to real dumping with the cooperative shooting range Rainbow Six Extraction, or even the extremely successful PC version of God of War 2018, and the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection. .
There will be a big spin in February, with long-awaited creations like the second installment of Horizon Zero Dawn, but there will be a zombie killing, an innovative-looking fighting game from FromSoftware’s debut world debut, and car racing fans alike.
We’ve put together five video games that will arrive in February, and every gamer is looking forward to them.
Dying Light 2 Stay Human – Február 4. (PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch)
Released in 2015, Dying Light took players off their feet by brilliantly mixing zombie hunting and park-city exploration. In the FPS action game, we were especially dreaded at night, when the undead were even more dangerous than usual, and our folded weapons always gave up service at the worst. Techland has been working on the sequel for six years, with Dying Light 2 Stay Human arriving on all platforms on Feb. 4, set to be played two decades after Part One, starring new protagonist Aiden Caldwell. Exploring the open world promises to be more diverse than ever before, with 3,000 parkour moves programmed into the game, which if we want to explore every nook and cranny, we’ll have to spend 500 hours as promised by the developers.
Sifu – Február 8. (PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5)
The previous game of the French Slocap development team, Absolver, was also for fans of martial arts. This time it will be no different, in Sifu we hide in the skin of a young disciple who is trying to teach the assassins responsible for the death of his family. It’s a shame that Sifu only comes out on PCs and PlayStations for now, and doesn’t reach an even wider audience because of it. The video game seems extremely atmospheric and realistic, except that no matter how many times we die in it, our character always ages a few years. It’s easy to identify that Sifura was influenced by works like Jackie Chan’s films, The Raid, or just Oldboy, so it’s definitely worth giving her a chance.
Horizon: Forbidden West – Február 18. (Playstation 4, PlayStation 5)
The Guerrilla Games team cut their ax into hard wood when they began making Horizon Zero Dawn in 2011, after Killzone 3, as the development team had not worked on role-playing before. However, the story of postapocalyptic America and Aloy wrestling with robots fascinated gamers. Released in 2017, the game is one of the best open-air adventures of recent times that has captivated people in front of monitors not only with its cozy universe but also with its strong characters and exciting gameplay. The sequel, Horizon: Forbidden West, arrives on February 18, bringing players back with brand new locations, secrets, and machine monsters on the even bigger map.
Grid Legends – Február 25. (PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S)
For fans of arcade racing games there is Forza Horizon, or Need for Speed, which has just seen a lot of dying but more beautiful days. For those who swear by the simulators, we recommend the Grid series with a good heart, the franchise is already in its fifth installment. This will be Grid Legends, where you will be able to race on more than 130 tracks, not only on professional racetracks, but on the streets of San Francisco, Paris, London, or Moscow in 100 different cars. This time, the game will also have a story mode inspired by the Formula 1: Drive to Survive documentary on Netflix … that sounds pretty exciting.
Elden Ring – Február 25. (PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S)
Hearing the name FromSoftware, Game Over flashes first in front of one’s spiritual eyes. No wonder the development team is known for releasing hellishly difficult games out of their hands. In addition to the Dark Souls trilogy, they worked on the all-starting Demon’s Soulson, the most terrifying Bloodborne in Sekiron, and whoever would have thought the sadistic making crew couldn’t twist one more on the well-proven formula was wrong. Elden Ring, like its great predecessors, targets masochistic gamers, but this time it’s a completely open world game. The Elden Ring is also exciting because FromSoftware, one of the most popular fantasy writers of our time for mythology and world-building, has been asked to contribute by FromSoftware. Not even looking for a more cruel artist than the writer of the Battle of the Thrones, so it’s a pretty good pairing.
