Games of february 2017.jpg

February is an exciting month for gamers - especially if you own a PlayStation 4 Pro as the console receives at least four games with enhanced Pro support. Play Anywhere boasts its own title this month with the release of Halo Wars 2, and then there's For Honor and Sniper Elite 4 that release on all three major platforms.

Nioh

Release dates: 07/02 NA, 8/02 PAL & SA, 9/02 JP

Platforms: PS4 & PS4 Pro exclusive

Genre: Action role-playing

Modes: Single-player & multiplayer

Age restriction: TBA

Game summary: One of our Dark Souls fans played the demo, and concluded that ”I walked away as happy as could be, as the game borrows inspiration from a few much-loved games of mine like Dark Souls, and Ninja Gaiden.” It's extremely hard, and challenges the player without mercy. Combat is hack and slash based, and the player has three different stances to pick from. High Stance, Middle Stance and Low Stance; each offering different attack benefits and protection stats. You can also “summon” another player to aid during very tough confrontations.

For Honor

Release date: 14/02 WW

Platforms: PC, PS4/Pro & Xbox One

Genre: Action, hack and slash

Modes: Single-player & multiplayer

Age restriction: M for Mature 17+

Rated for: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Online not rated

Game summary: For Honor is an exciting new IP that delivers refined, precise, and brutal combat. It’s all about prediction and fast reflexes, something Souls fans will love. Each of the warriors in a faction have their own skills set and battle style; which needs to be mastered in order to get the most out of them. Then there are battle skills, like the "arrow barrage" "player buff" or "healing" that can make or break a battle. From the cross platform faction war that sees PC, PS4 , and Xbox One gamers fight over land, to the beautiful landscapes that For Honor has to offer in game, Ubisoft  has a jewel in their hands. With a few combat tweak here and there, and a polished-up net code, For Honor could be a game you would want to pre-order.

If his mission fails, there will be no Operation Overlord, no D-Day landings, and no Victory in Europe."

Game summary: "Let's see what kind of galaxy we woke up to ..." In Halo Wars 2 you'll meet characters that are new to the franchise. Remember, at the end of Halo Wars the team goes into cryosleep ... in Halo Wars 2 they wake up 28 years later. They find themselves above a massive structure - the Ark - the birthplace of the "Halos". The only connection they have to the mysterious structure is an emergency signal. There are two playable factions in the game: the United Nations Space Command (UNSC from the first game), and the Banished an alien faction that replaces the Covenant.

Horizon Zero Dawn is a role-playing game, which plays like an action game, in an open-world environment. The world is divided into Eco-types, each with unique vegetation, climate, and creatures. Horizon Zero Dawn is set 1000 years after the apocalypse, and is a mixture between future technology and an era where civilization resembles cave people.
