Top New Video Game Releases On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Week -- January 26 - February 1, 2020

It's time to journey to some savage lands: Azeroth and Kentucky.

This week's episode of New Releases is about exploration. You can start a new adventure with Journey to the Savage Planet or reach the conclusion of another with Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition. It's also a week of ports, as Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire comes to PS4 and Xbox One, and Aviary Attorney: Definitive Edition lands on Nintendo Switch. The PC crowd isn't getting left out either, as Warcraft 3: Reforged is also on the way.

Journey To The Savage Planet -- January 28

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC

Funny games are a rare breed, but Journey to the Savage Planet definitely wants to make you laugh. Your goal is to explore a strange planet and determine if it's suitable for human life. Along the way, you'll encounter all manner of alien plants and animals.

Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition -- January 28

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, Switch

Kentucky Route Zero's first act launched in 2013. Seven years later, the final act is here, and you can get the complete saga in the new TV Edition. This will let you explore the whole mysterious route, encountering oddball characters like a giant eagle and a robot. These episodes are about so much more than truck driving.

This remaster includes the original Warcraft 3 and its expansion, The Frozen Throne. Of course, it also looks prettier, and it comes with improved modding tools. A new "story mode" difficulty will let you experience the campaign at a leisurely pace, but you can always test your skills in online multiplayer on Battle.net too.

Pillars Of Eternity II: Deadfire - Ultimate Edition -- January 28

Available on: PS4, Xbox One

The throwback CRPG is making its console debut this week, and the Ultimate Edition includes the base game and all previously released DLC. Between all those expansions, deep character customization, and massive world to explore, there's a lot to sink your teeth into here. PS4 and Xbox One players can bite in this week, and a Nintendo Switch version is planned for later this year.

Aviary Attorney: Definitive Edition -- January 30

Available on: Switch

That said, Nintendo Switch owners can check out a different Definitive Edition this week. The Switch port of Aviary Attorney is better looking than the original, but otherwise it's the same story of gathering evidence and going to court--as birds. In case the screenshot above wasn't clear, this game does indeed star an 1840s bird lawyer.

January is coming to a close, which means a whole new month of video game releases is approaching. Next week, we'll take a look at what February is bringing to the table, including the Western release of Yakuza 5 and some licensed games like The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics.

Can't wait to see PoE 2 on console. Enjoyed it immensely on pc but looking forward to reclassing it up and enjoying another romp on my couch. Looks fantastic on console also watching the trailers. On 4k it should be PIMP.

rofl love this comment.

Not sure they did any balancing with WC3, but I definitely remember Orcs literally smashing everything. Even the big Blizzard tourneys were 99% Orc players. I remember watching some of the finals at Blizzcon and it was Orc v Orc... next match Orc v Orc... next match Orc v Orc. Sure, massively skilled played, but all I recall were Orcs dominating.

Journey To A Savage Planet is my buy this week. I already pre ordered Warcraft 3 months ago. Journey looks like a mix of No Mans Sky and The Outer Worlds. Can't wait to try it out.

Sure, I always look forward to replaying WC3, but there's no way ATVI-Blizzard gets a dollar from me to do so.

The original installs and runs just fine, so long as you install the video codec used by its cutscenes.

@Pyrosa: Agree. Plus did they re-balance anything? I seem to recall from Blizzcons of yesteryear that Orcs dominated everything.
