Hey everybody! February 15th is a huge day for entertainment in general, but this is one loaded day. We have four major game releases and another big title hitting a week later. We actually have one less game hitting as Dead Or Alive 6 got pushed back. What are your plans for these? Let’s go over each title, which are surprisingly different from each other.
- Metro Exodus
Metro Exodus is the game I am the most excited about. I have always loved Metros post-apocalyptic feel. In a world of huge open world titles it is easy to get burnt out. A game like Metro Exodus is a refresher with its level based gameplay. If you want a solid first person shooter with a fantastic story (it is based on a book series), then go for Metro Exodus.
- Far Cry New Dawn
Similar to Far Cry Primal but without the bigger price tag, Far Cry New Dawn is another one of Ubisoft’s experiments with standalone expansions. Set 17 years after the events of a “certain Far Cry 5 ending” (I ain’t spoiling it for you), you will get plenty of play time with reoccurring outpost and some new “light RPG” mechanics. In short, if you like Far Cry, it makes sense to grab New Dawn.
- Jump Force
This is not my cup of tea, but I understand the appeal as someone who loves the Marvel vs Capcom and Injustice fighting franchises. If you love anime and fighting games, look no further than Jump Force. You can play as the likes of Goku, Naruto, Luffy, Deku, and many other anime favorites. There is even a character pass you can purchase that will add nine additional fighters as they release!
- Crackdown 3
We have been waiting a long long time for Crackdown 3. Every Terry Crews appearance in something made me wonder when Crackdown 3 would finally see the light of day, and it is finally here. Set twenty years past the first game, Crackdown 3 returns to it’s original roots which is crazy explosive fun. Mix a bit of Saints Row with a super powered agent in a futuristic setting and you have Crackdown 3. Also, if you have Game Pass, it will be available at midnight EST to start gaming!
So which game do you plan on picking up? Are you going to wait to get Anthem? Or maybe you like me will just grab a few? Let us know in the comments!
