February 23 Will Be The Best Day For Gaming In 2016
We all know that 2016 is loaded with hugely anticipated titles. But did you realize that three potential Game of the Year candidates are actually slated to launch on the same damn day?
That's right. Mark your calendar if you haven't already: February 23, 2016.
On that day, we will receive Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Mirror's Edge: Catalyst, and the freshly announced Far Cry Primal. It's one helluva coincidence and the only good news for those tight on time is that only the latter will be truly open-world (we think). Catalyst is certainly more open than the original Mirror's Edge but it clearly isn't a sandbox experience that will run you hundreds of hours, and neither is Mankind Divided. The 100+ hour experiences like Fallout 4 will be behind you by then.
Even so, that's quite the trio. Furthermore, PlayStation 4 owners probably shouldn't forget that Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness is scheduled to come out only a couple days later on the 25th, and that's guaranteed to be a pretty big game. Oh, and don't forget about The Division and Hitman in March, and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End in April (yes, all three were delayed; they were originally set for late 2015).
So, planning to call in sick on February 23, or what?
