February 2015 is definitely going to be a month dedicated to action games. Despite the relative low amount of video game releases planned for this month, there are a few notable and highly anticipated titles incoming, such as Evolve and The Order: 1886.Here are the most promising video games coming out this month.
6. Total War: Attila (MAC, PC)
Attila is the ninth game from Sega’s Total War series. The game is based on Attila’s historical conquests as one of the most feared leaders of the Hunnic Empire. Total War: Attila is a real-time strategy game that will feature three main factions: the Danes, the Geats and the Jutes. The provincial system will allow players to choose and adapt tactics depending on the circumstances, since each region within a province can be conquered separately.

5. Dead or Alive 5: Last Round (PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)
