The Game Rant Guide: January 2015 Edition

By | 2 years ago 

Happy new year! The holiday season is over, and a new year has begun. We still have a little while to go before the first major titles of 2015 start trickling in, but in the meantime there are a few releases that should keep gamers busy! Let’s take a look!

Ringing in the new year across all major consoles is Saints Row: Gat out of Hell, showing up fashionably late on January 20th. Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires rises to the occasion a week later, commanding forces across PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Windows PCs. Also available on the 27th is Grand Theft Auto V, which finally makes its debut on the PC. Grim Fandango: Remastered brings the cult classic point-and-click adventure title back on the 27th, to Windows PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, and the Vita.
