February is arriving soon and along with it comes a slew of new games. Long-time gamers can also look forward to upcoming HD remasters and expansions.

Here are some of the biggest games coming this February:

Gravity Rush Remastered

Gravity Rush, called Gravity Daze in Japan, went into development in 2008 and was originally slated for a PlayStation 3 (PS3) release. However, it ended up being a game for the PS Vita, launching on February 2012. An enhanced version of the game called Gravity Rush Remastered will be released for PlayStation 4 (PS4) on Feb. 2.

Street Fighter V

The game, set for a PC and PS4 launch on Feb. 16, is the fifth main title in the Street Fighter franchise. Sony has announced a PS4 bundle, which will include a 1-TB PS4 and physical copy of Street Fighter V. The bundle will also hit the shelves on Feb. 16.

Dying Light: The Following

Dying Light: The Following is an expansion of the original video game Dying Light, which was released for PC, Microsoft Xbox One and PS4 on January 2015. The new content of the open-world first-person survival horror video game includes a massive rural map. Gamers will also get access to a buggy, which they can drive through the zombie mobs.

Dying Light: The Following will be available for PC, Xbox One and PS4 on Feb. 9.


The puzzle platform video game follows the adventures of a small creature made of yarn, aptly named Yarny. As it moves, the twine that it is made of unravels, creating lines of yarn the player has to use to solve puzzles and progress in the game.

Unravel will hit PC, PS4 and Xbox One on Feb. 9.

Far Cry Primal

The action adventure video game has been developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. Far Cry Primal is the first game in the series that ditches guns altogether and goes back to prehistoric times. The game also features animal hunting, beast mastery and summoning.

Far Cry Primal will be released for PS4 and Xbox One on Feb. 23. A Windows version of the game will be released in March this year.

Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

This third-person shooter and tower defense video game has been developed by PopCap games and published by Electronic Arts. The gameplay will be reminiscent of that of its predecessor, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. However, the sequel will include six new plants and zombie classes with different abilities.
