Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII chronicles the last 13 days of the game's universe, with players taking on the role of Lightning as she seeks a way to save the world from extinction.The game retains the Paradigm Shift combat system introduced in Final Fantasy XIII, although players can now move Lightning around the battlefield and swap weapons instantaneously.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be released on February 13 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Gamers who are curious to try Lightning Returns but have not played through the previous two games can watch a retro-style trailer that explains the story so far.

For those who prefer their games a little closer to the real world, Far Cry: The Wild Expedition is out this week. The game is a bundle that includes Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3, and Far Cry: Blood Dragon, as well as Far Cry Classic, the high-definition remake of the first Far Cry title. The compilation bundle will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles.
