Games to Watch Out For This February 2024

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Cait Sith

How are we in February already? 2024 is ticking on, and it’s leaving a lot of games in its wake. But which are the best ones? That’s what we’re here for: we’ve rounded up the best games to watch out for this February 2024.

It’s a great month for PlayStation owners, with the likes of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth and Helldivers 2 landing, along with indies like Ultros and Pacific Drive. But it’s a strong month across the shop overall, with Persona 3 Reload, Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden and… well. We won’t spoil it. Just scroll on down and see what games you need to have on your radar this month.

Persona 3 Reload

  • Release date: 2nd February
  • Formats: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC

A title beloved by many gets the remake treatment this week, and on the whole Persona 3 Reload doesn’t disappoint. It remains a little too faithful to the original in ways, but as you’d expect of a remake Persona 3 Reload looks fantastic, has a brilliant soundtrack, and plays better than ever while also being more accessible. If you’re a JRPG fan, you really ought to check this out.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League
  • Release date: 2nd February
  • Formats: PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC

You could already be playing Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League if you fork out for its fancy digital deluxe edition which comes with three days early access, otherwise you have to wait until Friday. In any case, this latest Arkhamverse game by Rocksteady promises intense co-op action, although you can also play it solo. A bit of a departure from the Batman games, it focuses on fast-paced traversal and intense third-person shooter combat. We’ll have a review very soon.

Foamstars

FOAMSTARS
  • Release date: 6th February
  • Formats: PS4 and PS5

Square Enix doesn’t want you to think of Foamstars as Splatoon but on PlayStation, but it’s a shame as it’s the easiest way to describe it. In any case, this competitive team-based multiplayer game will find you battling it out across a number of match types, all including shooting foam. But the best thing? It’s launching straight into PlayStation Plus, and considering you need a subscription to play it anyway, you might as well add it to your library and give it a try.

Helldivers 2

Helldivers 2
  • Release date: 8th February
  • Formats: PS5 and PC

Helldivers is back, and it’s had an upgrade. Thanks to the power of the PS5 the series now has an over the shoulder third-person viewpoint, getting you closer to the action. The gameplay appears to remain the same, though, pitting you and a team of others against terrifying beasts. Can you play well together and overcome the challenges ahead? Drop in and find out when Helldivers 2 launches.

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden

Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden
  • Release date: 13th February
  • Formats: PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC

An action RPG by Don’t Nod, Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden has well and truly piqued our interest. Playing as a pair of Banishers, Antea and Red, this is a title that will have you fighting to protect the world from supernatural threat. Of course, being a Don’t Nod game there will be hard choices to make that will affect the story. And did we mention that Antea was dead? We’re looking forward to this one.

Ultros

ULTROS Preview
  • Release date: 13th February
  • Formats: PS4, PS5 and PC

If you’re a fan of metroidvanias or roguelikes, Ultros is a game you should definitely be keeping your eye on this February. Featuring a unique and eye-popping art style, Ultros finds you trapped in a loop in a labyrinthine world. You’ll have to explore and learn about what surrounds you, and eat the body parts of the enemies you’ve defeated as well as fruit you’ve grown to develop your stats and abilities. Needless to say, there’s nothing else quite like it.

Islands of Insight

  • Release date: 13th February
  • Formats: PC

Love puzzles? Islands of Insight has lots of puzzles. Over 10,000 of them, in fact. The key thing here is that you don’t have to puzzle alone, either, as you share the world with other players. You might want to team up to solve a tricky puzzle together, then, or simply play alongside other players while having a good old chin-wag. It’s up to you.

Tomb Raider 1-3 Remastered

Tomb Raider 1-3 Remastered
  • Release date: 14th February
  • Formats: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch and PC

You could spend Valentine’s Day with your significant other. If you have one, that is. Otherwise, you could spend it with Lara Croft, reliving her past adventures with a bit of a spruce up. All three of the original Tomb Raider games are included in this remastered collection, and as well as featuring things like enhanced textures and improved lighting, there’s a even a modern control scheme. It’s been a while since we’ve had a new Tomb Raider game, so we’re all over this.

Skull and Bones

Skull and Bones
  • Release date: 16th February
  • Formats: PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC

Skull and Bones finally releases this February. Amazingly, we still don’t really know all that much about it. We just hope that it’s kind of like Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, and that it’s not too multiplayer focused. We guess we’ll soon see, as there’s an open beta on all formats between the 8th and 11th of February, which we’ll definitely be jumping into. It might be wise for you to do so, too, to see if this is for you.

Pacific Drive

  • Release date: 22nd February
  • Formats: PS5 and PC

Weird, intriguing and altogether mystifying, Pacific Drive puts you in the midst of a strange declassified area, abandoned by the government. Very strange stuff is happening there, and equipped with only your car, you’re going to get to the bottom of it. Or, at least try to. Your car is your armour and your best friend here, and by upgrading it and gathering parts you’ll be able to push a bit further each time. We’ve previewed this one, and it’s made us rather excited for the full thing.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth
  • Release date: 29th February
  • Formats: PS5

We can’t believe that the next instalment of Final Fantasy VII is almost upon us. If the first part — Final Fantasy VII Remake — is anything to go by, this is something well worth getting excited about. There’s a lot to look forward to, least of all a trip to the Golden Saucer. But we can’t imagine it’s going to stay entirely faithful to the original game, not if the last one’s anything to go by. Still, another outing with Cloud and co? Sign us the hell up.
