Halo Wars 2: New Game Releases for the Week of February 2017

Not a huge week for big releases as February winds down, but still some titles of note. Halo Wars gets a sequel after an eight year wait as Halo Wars 2 hits store shelves this week. A new title based on the Dynasty warriors formula arrives in Berserk and the Band of the Hawk, and a classic JRPG gets upgraded for the PS4 in the way of Ys Origin. Resident Evil fans on Xbox One and PC get two DLC packs this week, catching up to players on the PS4. A couple of Oscar nominated films arrive on home video this week (Hacksaw Ridge, Manchester by the Sea) alongside the raunchy comedy sequel Bad Santa 2. Hitting theaters this week is the horror film Get Out, the thriller Collide, and the animated family flick Rock Dog. Time for this week’s list and, as always, release dates are subject to change.
