Create your character and dive into God Eater 3 built from the ground up for home consoles.
Crackdown 3 (Xbox One, PC) February 15th
Crackdown 3 a game that has been an enigma for quite some time, is on its final march to release. Crackdown 3 will launch on Xbox One, and PC (Windows Store) on February 15th, 2019. There have been many bumps in the development cycle of Crackdown 3, at this point, it almost seems to be a dream that it’s coming out. Developed by Sumo Digital and published by Microsoft, all the credit goes to Microsoft to standing by this game and delivering it. Especially after the cancellations of Fable Legends and Scalebound.
Far Cry New Dawn (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC) February 15th
Far Cry New Dawn was a surprise announcement at The Game Awards in December, as no one was expecting a new Far Cry game this soon. Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, and published by Ubisoft, Far Cry New Dawn is a spin-off of 2018’s hit Far Cry 5. Set after the events of Far Cry 5, Hope County has been transformed into a post-apocalyptic wasteland in which you have to battle other factions for resources. Far Cry New Dawn while not a full priced release retailing for $39.99 USD it looks like a different take on the Far Cry formula, very much in the same way as Far Cry Primal was to Far Cry 4.
Jump Force (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC) February 15th
If you are a fan of anime, there is no doubt that Jump Force has been on your radar for a long time. Jump Force is a fighting game from the developers Spike Chunsoft and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. Bringing characters from such anime franchises as Dragon Ball, One Piece, Naruto and many more. With the success of Dragon Ball FighterZ, it’s hard to imagine a game with such a wide variety of characters to not be a massive hit. The game releases on February 15th, 2019, on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
Metro Exodus (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC) February 15th
Metro Exodus, is the 3rd game in the Metro franchise, the previous games Metro 2033, and Metro: Last Light were unique story based FPS games. The Metro franchise has always blended survival elements, stunning set pieces, and clean FPS gameplay, and Metro Exodus appears to be no exemption. Developed by 4A Games and published by Deep Silver, Metro Exodus looks set to break into a whole new audience with one of their most ambitious additions to the Metro franchise. The game launches on Xbox One, PS4, and PC February 15th, 2019.
Anthem (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC) February 22nd
Anthem is the upcoming online multiplayer action RPG game from developers BioWare and is published by EA. Anthem has a lot riding on its success, Bioware the studio behind memorable franchises such as Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Jade Empire, and many more classic RPGs, is taking Anthem in a brand new direction. Anthem essentially answers the question we all had as kids, what would it be like to be Iron Man? While the demos over the past few weeks have had their fair share of technical issues, for the sake of Bioware we all hope that these issues are resolved in final build and the game has a smooth launch. Anthem launches February 22nd, 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
Trials Rising (Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC)
Trails Rising is the upcoming game developed RedLynx and Ubisoft Kiev and published by Ubisoft. Set to release on February 26th, 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, Trials Rising looks to be a welcome addition to the Trials franchise. Trials Rising looks to continue to build what everyone loves about the Trials franchise, which is difficult and frustrating levels with insane skill curves. Personally, I am a massive Trials fan, and I cannot wait to see what this game brings to the series.
