No doubt FPS gaming is the most popular genre in gaming history
The gaming community always craves for such never-ending unfettered mayhem, and such melee has also penetrated minds of casual gamers. It resulted in games targeted to all rather than just hardcore devotees.
One thing you can be sure that there won’t be a shortage of shooting games.
Be it multiplayer titles, co-op titles as there are some pretty good shooters coming up in 2018 and beyond.
1. Metro Exodus
Taking place after the events of Metro: Last Light, players will once again step into the role of Artyom in the upcoming first-person shooter, Metro Exodus.
Over twenty year has passed in the nuclear war that left much of the earth in a post-apocalyptic state, Artyom is on a grand journey to travel with the Spartan Rangers.
As you can expect from past Metro titles, players will be fighting off a slew of enemies and mutated creatures. Outside of battle, Artyom will need to scavenge for various materials to help craft new weaponry and goods to stay alive.
3. System Shock
If you enjoyed System Shock back when it first released in 1994, next year, 2018, players will be given the chance to once again enjoy the System Shock journey through a remake. T
The video game the narrate the journey of a nameless hacker who gets swindled into working with the TriOptimum Corporation, a company the hacker previously attempted to hack and steal files from.
As mentioned, System Shock originally released back in 1994 where it was praised by critics and was a commercial success leading to a sequel to release under the development studios Looking Glass Studios and Irrational Games. I am interested in seeing just how well the remake will do in today’s market.
4. Ready Or Not
Ready or Not may see a release this year, though we don’t have an official release date attached to the project quite yet. This is an upcoming first-person shooter that acts like the Rainbow Six series in that players will be experiencing a tactical police type shooter.
Within the game, players will take on the role of an elite SWAT team member who must protect the innocent and take down the hostile threats. However, don’t think you can go guns blazing as the developers are working on a realism experience.
