There are a lot of games to play this weekend and throughout the month. Let's break down all the games to play for PC, console, and even mobile.


Free to Play This Weekend


Let's start with what you can play right now this weekend.


Skull and Bones Open Beta

Mobile Games



Apple Arcade recently added BEAST: Bio Exo Arena Suit Team and Words in Progress this month and Netflix recently added FashionVerse. Unfortunately, I was not able to find any other definitively dated games coming to Netflix in February but there is a large list of previously announced games that have not been added to the platform yet. Keep your eyes out for new games for now and I will be sure to mention any new games added at the beginning of March.


Xbox Game Pass and EA Play



The first half of February Game Pass games have been revealed by Xbox. While it's likely we can expect more in the latter half, I have not found any details on other games announced elsewhere. Here's what you can look forward to playing on Game Pass this month.


  • Anuchard

  • Train Sim World 4

  • Madden NFL 24 (EA Play)

  • Resident Evil 3

  • Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

  • A Little to the Left

  • PlateUp!

  • Return to Grace


In addition, Galactic Civilizations III and Opus: Echo of Starsong will be leaving Game pass on February 15 so make sure to play them now before they're gone.


PlayStation Plus



PlayStation Plus Essential players this month can play the newly released Foamstars, Rollerdrome, and Steelrising. As usual, we don't know what games will be added to the Extra and Essential tiers of PlayStation Plus yet as PlayStation typically announces those near the middle of the month. We'll know about which games will be added soon.


Unfortunately, the following PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium games will be removed from the service soon on February 20th.


  • Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

  • Hue

  • I Am Setsuna

  • Lost Sphear

  • Lost Words: Beyond the Page

  • Oninaki

  • Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

  • Tacoma

  • Tekken 7

  • Thomas Was Alone


Nintendo Switch Online



Unfortunately, we don't know what games or DLC will be added for Nintendo Switch Online this month. However, there are a few interesting points to note this month. Firstly, the only previously announced game we have yet to see added to the Expansion Pack is the Game Boy Advance game F-Zero: Maximum Velocity. I am assuming if we're getting any games this month, it would be this game.


Secondly, there is a rumored Nintendo Direct that everyone is expecting to happen this month. Considering we only know of a few key Switch games that will be released this year, it would make sense for Nintendo to announce a Nintendo Direct soon. However, it may be possible Nintendo is holding out for new game announcements for when they're reading to talk about the next console to succeed the Switch (which I'm betting will happen around or soon after the release of Princess Peach: Showtime!). It is possible that we could see more Nintendo Switch Online games announced during a new Nintendo Direct.


Lastly, Nintendo Switch Online is still missing the biggest Game Boy games to its library. We have yet to see any Pokemon games added to the Game Boy or Game Boy Advance catalog. While it didn't happen last year, there's a chance we could hear something that would coincide with Pokemon Day later this month. There is usually a "Pokemon Presents" showcase that details everything the Pokemon Company plans to release for the Pokemon franchise throughout the year or more. This would be an ideal place to mention that the classic games will be available for the Switch.


And that's everything I was able to find this month. If I missed something that needs to be added, let me know!
