Welcome back! 2019 had a surprisingly eventful February, with the release of BioWare’s long-awaited shared world shooter Anthem, as well as Respawn’s surprise battle royale launch Apex Legends. A few more highlights from last month: manga brawler Jump Force, post-apocalyptic sequel Far Cry New Dawn, off-road racer Dirt 2.0, and a whole bunch more. Vote for your pick below, but don’t dally — polls close March 7 at 11:59pm Pacific!
What is the voting criteria? That’s up to you! If you were only able to recommend one new release to a friend that month, which would it be? In keeping with our long tradition in the Game of the Year Awards, remastered or re-released games won’t qualify. Ambitious, larger-scale rebuilds and remakes like Shadow of the Colossus and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will.
How are nominees decided? The PlayStation.Blog and PlayStation Store editorial teams will gather a list of that month’s most noteworthy releases and use it to seed the poll. Write-in votes will be accepted.
