New games coming out in Australia this month: February 2016


Keeping track of the next big blockbuster experience is made simple using VG Finder’s calendar of upcoming video game release dates for February 2016.

1 February 2016: After a typically slow start to the year, February sees a dramatic increase in the number of games hitting store shelves. The poor Wii U is underserviced, but a good mix of titles are launching on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and 3DS, while PC owners get the strategy joys of XCOM 2 to dive into. Perhaps the most notable release, however, is Far Cry Primal - the fifth release in the beloved open-world action series. However, fighting fans who own a PS4 will be excited by the arrival of Street Fighter V, while younger gamers looking for an online first-person shooter to enjoy should consider Plants vs. Zombies 2: Garden Warfare.

Here are all the box copy games coming out across all formats this month, as well as some notable releases in the downloadable space (including the next game in The Walking Dead series by Telltale Games, a fully 3D Assassin’s Creed game for mobiles and an indie-like from EA called Unravel.)
