Time to step up your boom and stop crime as a super-powered Agent in Crackdown 3's open-world sandbox of mayhem and destruction.

Microsoft had an Inside Xbox event today and shared the launch trailer for Crackdown 3, which is due out on February 15.

Also, Microsoft revealed details about the game's modes, such as Wrecking Zone, the destructive PvP mode in Crackdown 3, where buildings, cars, and everything else can be entirely destructed.

Even though we may have been distracted by the surprise launch of Apex Legends, there's another high-profile Electronic Arts game hitting shelves this month: BioWare's Anthem.

The rest of the month is no slouch.

King James is Using Harrison Barnes as a Pawn
But the fact the Mavericks were playing a game against the Charlotte Hornets when Barnes found out made it a bit. well, awkward. He's just a genuinely good dude and he's obviously got bonds with some of these players here for life.

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker testifies before the House Judiciary Committee
I ask the department to work with the committee to provide them. "And your humor is not acceptable", Jackson Lee said. He is the person "ultimately in charge of the investigation", yet insisted he has not interfered in any way with it.

Fortnite announces Valentine's Day event
A final sneaky detail: the post notes that the Share the Love event ends on February 27, "right before the arrival of Season 8". Don't sweat it, Epic is keeping tracking of things, so you'll receive your goody pack as soon as the update releases.

Arguably the biggest announcement on the list is Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the final instalment in the Lara Croft reboot, which will arrive on February 7. The game will join Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition as well as its sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider, so that will make all the whole trilogy available for subscribers.

Other additions to the library include the first season of Telltale's The Walking Dead, de Blob and Pumped BMX Pro, which aren't as huge but should still be nice additions. Nearly nine years after the less-than-ideally-remembered Crackdown 2, we've made it: Crackdown 3 launches on February 15.

Last, but certainly not least, Batman: Return to Arkham will swoop in on February 21.

The catalog features over a hundred games that aren't just Xbox One titles, but also select Xbox 360 and original Xbox titles too. Check out the full Game Pass listing, and see below for a handy list of notable dates this month.
