Garden warfare and a trip to the Stone Age await you.

Written by on    

After a less than stellar Street Fighter V launch last week, most gamers are already looking for other titles that they can sink their teeth into. Luckily for them, this week’s releases include the likes of Far Cry Primal, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, The Walking Dead: Michonne, and so much more. Below is a quick list of every notable title that should be on your radar this week.

Full Title: Far Cry Primal
Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Publisher: Ubisoft
Platforms: PlayStation 4, and Xbox One
Release Date: 2/23

Far Cry Primal is the latest installment in Ubisoft’s popular action-adventure series. With a Stone Age setting, various tribes to defend and fight against, and several wildlife creatures to tame, Primal is already shaping up to be one of the hottest games out this month. If you’re a fan of single player open world adventure titles, then you definitely should give this game a try.

Full Title: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2
Developer: PopCap Games
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC
Release Date: 2/23

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is a third-person shooter and tower defense game developed by PopCap Games. This Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare sequel includes 6 new plant and zombie classes, a zombie version of Garden Ops, and several new multiplayer modes. If you enjoyed what the first game in the series had to offer, then you’ll definitely find yourself right at home with this one too.

Full Title: The Walking Dead: Michonne: Episode 1 – In Too Deep
Developer: Telltale Games
Publisher: Telltale Games
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC
Release Date: 2/23

The Walking Dead: Michonne is a brand new miniseries based on Robert Kirkman’s wildly popular comic book series of the same name. If you played any of previous Walking Dead titles made by Telltale Games, then you already have a good idea of what to expect from this game. Episode 1 is the first of 3 episodes that we can expect over the next few months. If you love zombies and a character as cool as Michonne, then you definitely can’t go with picking up this episode on day one.
