Even when every new game that comes out fall into the same old themes, gaming never gets old. Among all of the themes there are, shooting remains one of the most popular and keeps getting new tittles regularly.
1. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
This is the latest addition to the 17-year-old Rainbow Six series. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege (R6S) is an important milestone of the series as it fully transformed from a single-player game to a multiplayer game. It means that the game would not feature only one main character and Logan Keller & Bishop’s storyline. In Rainbow Six Siege, players would join in online battles versus other human players all around the world.
Overwatch is built on what’s left of Project Titan, a failed MMO project of Blizzard. The game is like a MOBA/FPS hybrid that features different characters (called Heroes), each comes with unique skills and designs. These heroes are not equally powerful and are strong in different ways.
Getting into the game, fans have to admit that Blizzard was really creative, they had crafted something new for the genre that even hardcore FPS players would fall in love with.
3. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG)
PUBG is a battle royale “last man standing” style game with no storyline. Its combat system is quite similar to other shooting games’ and it is the map size that makes the difference. In PUBG, the first thing you can notice upon entering a match is that its map is very big as it is the battlefield of 100 people at once.
You as a player can explore around freely but always keep an eye out for the Circle and other players because your goal in the game is to be the last one surviving. You can do that by looting for weapons, armors and other items. With gears, skills, strategy and a bit of luck you would be able to protect yourself, take on other players and might ultimately win the game.
No match in PUBG is similar to another, it always changes and give you the thrills every time you join a match. Every player has their own way to play so no one can predict the others’ moves.
4. Fortnite Battle Royale
Fortnite is like PUBG but in a more casual tone. The game attracted more than 1 million players at launch. At this point, the race to the number one battle royale game is still a thing just between Fortnite and PUBG.
The game used to be dubbed as “PUBG wannabe”, “PUBG copycat” and so on but it only made Fortnite become more popular and consistently set its own records.
There is a twist in Fortnite‘s gameplay that makes it stand out from the crowd: the building mechanics, players can collect materials around the map and build walls, floors, stairs and roofs to assist them in combat or maybe just for fun.
5. Far Cry 5
In Far Cry 5, you are an unnamed junior deputy sheriff who was sent to a placed call Hope County of Montana to capture Joseph Seed – the leader of a doomsday cult called the Project at Eden’s Gate. Joseph believed that he was sent to earth by the gods to cleanse it. He and the cult would capture, kill civilians and do many other terrible things to achieve his goals.
In order to defeat Joseph, you have to first defeat his sons Jacob Seed, John Seed and Faith Seed (The Heralds). The three guard their own lands on the map of Far Cry 5 where you can only take over by slowly attract their attention and wait for a chance to kill them.
