Top New Games Releasing This Week On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC — February 18-24

This week’s batch of new games have plenty to take on, whether it’s the undead in Metal Gear Survive, rival kingdoms in Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, or a bunch of ghosts in Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus. You can also explore a mysterious space facility in The Station, or throw down with some four-legged animals in Them’s Fightin’ Herds.

Metal Gear Survive — February 20

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC

The first Metal Gear game since Hideo Kojima left Konami is very different from Snake’s sneaking missions. This open-world survival game is all about scavenging for resources to build weapons and defenses. You can take the challenge solo or with friends in co-op.

After a delay, the best way to play this classic strategy game is launching this week. It’s souped-up for the modern era with 4K support, brand-new narration, and rebuilt sound effects–but you can always turn all that off and play in Classic Mode too. Definitive Edition includes the base game and the Rise of Rome expansion.

Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus — February 22

Them’s Fightin’ Herds — February 22

Available on: PC

If this cartoon-looking fighter seems familiar, that’s because it comes from the same mind behind My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. But don’t let the cutesy look fool you: this fighter takes cues from series like BlazBlue and Guilty Gear, so don’t expect an easy battle.
