January 2017 has been a good month for video games, with titles like Resident Evil 7 coming out to critical acclaims.
It is also the month that graced us with early impressions on Nintendo Switch, Nintendo's latest console.
February is here and it is not lacking in exciting titles for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile iOS and Android. Much-anticipated games like Nioh and Horizon Zero Dawn are just around the corner. So save money and energy because sleepless nights are coming when these big titles hit the stores.
The Highly-Anticipated Games of February 2017
One of biggest titles is Horizon Zero Dawn, an open-world RPG set in a post-apocalyptic world thousand years into the future that has humanity reverting to hunter-gathering tribes. That world is populated by sentient robotic beasts. This is the premise of the game developed by Guerrilla Games of the Killzone fame. Aloy, the game's heroine, will come out on Feb. 28 on PS4.
Next is Team NINJA's Nioh, an action RPG set in feudal Japan populated with samurais, ninjas, and demonic beings. The player will take the role of William, a Westerner who will be pitted against monstrous creatures that are clearly inspired by hit series Dark Souls. Action game lovers can get this game on Feb. 7.
Speaking of love, Feb. 14 will see the launch of For Honor, Ubisoft's medieval action game that will see Vikings, Samurais, and Knights juking it out against each other in one chaotic, war-filled world. This is a solo and multiplayer game that will test the battle skills of these three medieval warriors, whose faction have own different subclasses.
Another big title is Sniper Elite 4, a WW2-set third-person shooter that will see the return of the dramatic "X-Ray cam" shots. The game will put sniper Karl Fairburne in Italy during the height of World War 2. The game is targeted for a Feb. 14 release.
