It's a busy time writing about and reviewing games as mid-February is something of a hot spot for big game releases this year. Just take a look at the many titles set to hit us on February 15...
Lovecraftian horror adventure Conarium, released on PC back in 2017, is heading to PS4 and Xbox One. Neon-soaked arena brawler Hyper Jam lands on PC, PS4, and Xbox One for those looking for local or online multiplayer matches.

Brace yourself for February 15. First, we've got Crackdown 3 arriving on PC and Xbox One, and while we're a bit sceptical about this one, at least it's got Terry Crews, and that's something. Then there's Far Cry New Dawn, the sequel slash spin-off to Far Cry 5 that sees you explore a post-apocalyptic Hope County as you try and help society rebuild after the bombs (PC, PS4, Xbox One). Speaking of the apocalypse, things aren't much better in mother Russia, as 4A Games deliver the third title in the popular Metro series and Metro Exodus looks spectacular from where we're sitting (PC, PS4, Xbox One). Bandai Namco serves up Jump Force, a massive mash-up celebration of Shonen Jump's big anniversary (PC, PS4, Xbox One). Finally, you can begin playing next week's big release from Bioware, Anthem, via EA Access (Xbox One) or Origin Access (PC).
