People from all walks of life have been sorely affected, due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation. Disruptions in scheduling and remote work proved to be a less than ideal scenario causing delays in media releases across the board. These factors also affected the gaming industry, with many games being delayed. Fortunately for us, the delayed schedule has led to some very exciting games releasing this month and we can’t wait to talk about them!
Dying Light 2
This game is no stranger to delays or disruptions even before COVID-19 messed everything up. The game has gone through development hell and has been in production for the past 7 years. While originally slated to release in the Fall of last year, it was delayed to 4th February 22.
Now, just days away from release we can safely say that this game will exceed the expectations of gamers across the world, wanting a fulfilling first-person zombie survival experience. The game has improved upon the original with better movement, parkour elements and a traditional RPG skill tree which is a new addition to the series. Dying Light 2 will release on Next Gen, Old gen consoles and PC as well. Pre-order now or you can wait a couple of days more to get hands-on!
Horizon Forbidden West
The long-awaited sequel to one of the most unique IPs is also slated to release within this month. It launches as a console exclusive on both the PS5 and PS4 with assured performance output on the last-gen consoles as well.
The game, like its predecessor, focuses on the world in the aftermath of Zero Dawn and takes Aloy and her tribe, on a new journey to the destroyed remains of San Francisco to take on and face new threats. The game studio, guerrilla games announced just last week that the game had finally gone “gold”. Going “gold” in the gaming industry means that a game is complete and playable from start to finish, and other copies will be made from this source.
The game is set to be released on the 18th of Feb worldwide!
Elden ring, by far, is the most anticipated game releasing this month with fans of the soulsborne series clamouring for another heart-pounding, jaw-dropping experience. The hype train has well and truly left the station with this one since the gameplay trailer was released. While the game was originally slated to release on the 25th of January, the game was delayed by one month to the 25th of Feb due to “developmental reasons”. i.e. the game needed more polish!
The game will be released all across the board, coming to Ps4, Ps5, Xbox-one, Series-S and X as well. Pc gamers will be pleased to hear that the game will also be available on Steam on the launch date.
To be fair, with the amount of hype and how much people have been waiting for this game what’s another 20-25 days?
That’s it for our pick of the best games coming to your consoles and PC’s this month and be sure to check up on our catalogue if you are an avid game collector in need of a Blu Ray DVD storage box!
