Read our round-up of this week’s new video game releases for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
Bioware’s Anthem is this week’s big new release, and comes to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on February 22, 2019. Early reports suggest the game has room to improve, but is also polished, and has long-term potential. EA Access subscribers can get ten-hour trial of the game in advance of its full release.
Aside from Anthem, this week’s crop of video games is a mixed bag of indie and B-tier releases.
One recommendation is Henchman & Goon’s charmer co-op puzzler, Pode, which comes to PlayStation 4 after its successful release on Nintendo Switch. Also worth a look is Pixel Maniacs’ PS VR adaptation of the Portal-like shooter, ChromaGun.
This week’s drop of Nintendo Switch games includes Trine 2 (great), Q.U.B.E 2 (pretty good), and My Arctic Farm 2018 (we have no idea about this one, but if even if it’s fantastic, it’s surely a year too late?)
We’ll update this page throughout the week with any last-minute additions.
