The Best Upcoming Games February
February sure is the shortest month. That means if it ends up being horrible then at least we’ll be out of it faster than normal. It also means we’ve got fewer days for games to release on, but that doesn’t stop the quality at all. In fact, in my humble opinion, this could well be one of the best months in recent memory based on some of the stuff we’ve got coming. Here are our picks for the most exciting games coming out this month.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood
Sometimes indie games look a lot like AAA games, and this is definitely one of those cases. The story and whatnot here are all great, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it all gets received, but there’s no way that the game looking as good as it does isn’t one of the main factors here. Oh, you can also be a Werewolf, and that’s a nice bit of escapism too, which is always worthwhile.
Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is letting the dogs out on February 4th.
Blue Fire looks like a 3D Hollow Knight. I don’t think I need to write anything else about it to be honest, so I’m just going to tell you to keep an eye out for it because it looks incredible. If it manages to live up to the lofty expectations I’ve just placed upon it, then it’s sure to be one of the best games of the year.
Blue Fire will delight and frustrate when it releases on February 4th.
20XX was a brilliant game mashing together Mega Man and roguelikes for a really great experience. 30XX promises to do the same but with more, and that’s a great reason to check it out. This one is going to release into Early Access, but I think there will probably be enough there to make it worthwhile, especially if you want to mess around with the online co-op too.
You can live out your Mega Maniest dreams when 30XX hits Early Access on February 17th.
Shattered – Tale of the Forgotten King
Shattered- Tale of the Forgotten King, has been out in Early Access for around half a year. It’s about to emerge as a fully-fledged beautiful butterfly this month though, and that can only be good news for people looking for another Soulslike. It’s a really pretty game, and the combat looks like a lot of fun, but so do the platforming sections.
Shattered – Tale of the Forgotten King will be coming out of Early Access on February 17th.
Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos
I got to play this last year, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. The combination of classic Zelda-like gameplay, roguelike elements, and the co-op, all make for my kind of game. It’s also incredibly pretty and I found it to be incredibly moreish. This is definitely another one that could easily sneak into my GOTY list in 300 months when December comes around.
You can get your adventure on when Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos releases on February 23rd.
