Preparations for Chinese New Year and reunions with friends can get hectic, so I wasn’t able to announce upcoming games in time for February 2022. Since February is a month bringing both events of Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day, there are also many choices of upcoming games to choose from or to buy and we ain’t complaining. There are many fine game selections worth your attention, ranging from pure zombie action to a one-woman versus safari machines adventure, Alchemy JRPG, a man kungfu fighting a gang of thugs, and even a dark souls-like open-world.
Dying Light 2 Stay Human
If zombies are your thing, run in headfirst in first-person view agile parkour, fight your way to survive, dropkicks and reshape the world with your choices with Techland’s Dying Light 2. Releasing today on February 4th, 2022, players are thrust back into the dark age of Harran 20 years after the events of Dying Light. The best way to survive in a brutal open world of everchanging zombies in the night or day is with parkour skills, clever thinking, traps, and weapons.
