Many greatly anticipated games are coming out in 2020, such as Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Last of Us Part II, and Ghost of Tsushima. While the release dates for these titles are still a little way off, there’s still plenty of fantastic games to get stuck into that are coming out this month.
Let’s take a look at some of the top video game releases in February 2020.
Release Date: February 14th
From the same team that made LittleBigPlanet and Tearaway, Dreams is an interesting creation that’s both a video game and a tool for making video games.
It includes pre-made levels to play, as well as an impressive range of tools to design your own levels. If you’ve ever wanted to dip your toes in video game design, then Dreams provides you all the mechanics to get started.
You can learn how to design your own games, as well as animate, make music, and more with simple tutorials. You can then share your creations with other players and vice versa.
Two Point Hospital
Release Date: February 25th
Platform: Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4
If you enjoyed the classic game, Theme Hospital on PC, then Two Point Hospital is definitely worth looking at.
Like its predecessor, Two Point Hospital is a sim hospital management game. As you’ve probably already guessed, you run a hospital. Day-to-day tasks include hiring staff, building amenities expanding facilities, treating whacky illnesses, and keeping your employees and patients happy. Things can get a little hectic, so try not to kill any of your patients in the process.
The game has been on PC for a couple of years, but if you’ve been waiting for it come to consoles, now’s your chance.
The Suicide of Rachel Foster
Release Date: February 19th
Platform: PC, Xbox One, PS4
In this narrative-driven thriller, you play as a young woman named Nicole. After many years away, she returns to her family’s old hotel to survey the place before selling it.
A snowstorm prevents her from leaving the property for a few days, so she puts her time to good use by going through her father’s old belongings and revisiting her past. Via phone, a friendly FEMA agent called Irving provides Nicole with some extra company.
The Suicide of Rachel Foster is reminiscent of Firewatch and Gone Home, particularly the former as it also features a character you only experience through phone calls.
The Dark Crystal – Age of Resistance Tactics
Release Date: February 4th
Platform: PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4
If you’re a fan of Netflix’s The Dark Crystal, then this tactical strategy game is one to check out. It takes place in the world of Thra and features the events of the series, as well as beyond them. You lead a resistance of Gelfling against their unjust overlords, the Skeksis.
There are over 50 turn-based campaign battles to experience, as well as new characters, stories, and environments. You can recruit and modify your allies by assigning them roles, adjusting their abilities, and customizing their equipment.
Bayonetta and Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle
Release Date: February 18th
Platform: Xbox One, PS4
Bayonetta and Vanquish recently celebrated their 10th anniversary, so what better way to experience these two fantastic games in a 4K remastered, twin-pack edition. This is the first time both of these two titles are available on Xbox One and PS4.
Bayonetta is an action-adventure game in which you play as a witch who can shapeshift, use firearms, spell cast, and even use her hair to summon a flurry of demons. The game is set in Vigrid, a fictional city in Europe.
Vanquish, on the other hand, is a sci-fi shooter. Earth has become severely overpopulated and is suffocating due to its scarce resources.
The United States of America launches a solar-powered space colony called SC-01 Providence as a means to eliminate these major energy problems on earth. However, things don’t go according to plan.
