Deliver Us Mars

Our first most anticipated video game for February is KeokeN Interactive and Frontier Foundry’s Deliver Us Mars. The story-rich sci-fi adventure features a high-stakes mission to recover the ARK colony ships stolen by the mysterious Outward. The adventure will allow players to explore new frontiers as they attempt to save the human race. The trailers for the game look incredibly stunning, and who doesn’t want to rush off into space?

Deliver Us Mars drops on February 2, 2023, for PC through Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

Octopath Traveler II

Octopath Traveler II is the highly anticipated sequel to one of Square Enix’s more beloved modern RPGs. The new installment brings back the gorgeous 2D-HD art style that sparked a revolution in the genre, as well as its multi-character, branching approach to storytelling. We are excited to dive back into this beautiful world and experience another epic journey.

Octopath Traveler II will drop on February 24, 2023, on PC through Steam, PS4, PS5 and the Nintendo Switch.

Returnal

Returnal is coming to PC. That’s it. Okay, that isn’t really it. If you haven’t had the chance to check out Housemarque, Climax Studios and PlayStation’s award-winning third-person shooter, now is the time. The roguelike adventure follows Selene, who has crashlanded on a barren landscape and must fight to survive. Over and over again every time she dies. It’s got hours of game time, and honestly, the visuals alone make it a must-play this month.

Returnal makes its way to PC through Steam on February 15, 2023. It is currently available on PS5.

Kirby’s Return to Dreamland Deluxe

It has been a big year for Kirby fans, and now we can look forward to Kirby’s Return to Dreamland Deluxe too! This title isn’t a new title but rather a remake of a game that came out for the Nintendo Wii. The original platformer was charming and responsive, so we are excited to see it added to the Nintendo Switch library. 

Kirby’s Return to Dreamland Deluxe will hit the Nintendo Switch on February 24, 2023.

Sons of the Forest

Our next most anticipated video game of February comes from the makers of The Forest, Endnight Games and Newright. Their newest title, Sons of the Forest, is another survival horror game. This one takes us to a remote island to find a missing billionaire. It just so happens to be a cannibal-infested hellscape. Build and craft your way to survival as you face demons and deal with the changing seasons.

Sons of the Forest releases on February 23, 2023, for PC through Steam.

Clive ‘N’ Wrench

The whole trailer for Clive ‘N’ Wrench stands as an homage to old-school 3D platformers like Banjo-Kazooie. It is a 3D platformer centered around Clive, the rabbit and Wrench, the monkey on his back. This adventure from one-man team Dinosaur Bytes will take you through time and space in a magical 1950s fridge on a quest to undo Clive’s cousin Nancy’s mistake and ultimately thwart the tyrannical Dr. Daucus.

Clive ‘N” Wrench will be released on February 24, 2023, for PC through Steam, PS4, PS5 and the Nintendo Switch.

Scars Above

Keeping up with the science-fiction genre for February’s most anticipated video games, we have Mad Head Games and Prime Matter’s Scars Above. This is a challenging third-person action-adventure shooter that marries together difficult yet rewarding gameplay with an in-depth story that will have you on the edge of your seat. Players will control Dr. Kate Ward, who awakes in a hostile environment following a mission gone wrong. It’s a survive-against-all-odds-style gameplay that is sure to excite gamers.

Scars Above drops on February 28, 2023, for PC through Steam, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
