Games This Month - Jan 2019

Got a new console or PC over the holidays? Congratulations! If you’re looking to fill up that new gaming library of yours, a fast and cost-efficient way of doing so is through bundles and subscriptions. There’s quite a few monthly options out there, so we’ve decided to compile all of the notable ones here. Welcome to the new Games This Month!

This post will be updated throughout the month as and when new info is available, after which you’ll want to look out for the next edition. For monthly release highlights, check out The GameAxis Playlist instead!

Ade thinks there's nothing quite like a good game and a snug headcrab. He grew up with HIDEO KOJIMA's Metal Gear Solid, lives for RPGs, and is waiting for light guns to make their comeback.
