As someone who might be classed as a collector when it comes to games, I noticed how expensive February can be for games, more specifically. One day.
The day after Valentines, perhaps the publishers thought it might be a good idea to cheer up solos.
Do you know how many games are going to be playable on February 15th?
Six games will be playable on February 15th. I chose playable carefully because technically only five are being released that day.
- Crackdown 3
- Dead or Alive 6
- Far Cry: New Dawn
- Jump Force
- Metro Exodus.
And then we have the early access to Anthem, if you are an Origin Premier member.
That’s a lot of ground to cover.
So in total, we have four open world free roaming games (you can minus Metro Exodus if you’d like as it’s technically not “open-world”), all in one day.
A throwback to an article I wrote a while ago, where I discussed if single-player games are getting too big. I came to the conclusion, no they are not, if properly crafted.
But four large explorable games in a single day. That’s a bit much.
A day to fight for.
Then we have two fighting games on the same day, are they competing against each other? On one side we have a well established and loved franchise, and another breaking boundaries with anime characters in a realistic world.
Although to be honest, I’m excited to see how that turns out.
Six games are a lot for one day, is it accidental, or strategic placement.
Maybe you’re a solo and think this is great?
Let me know below.
