The FPS! Glorious concept that responds to three words that define one of the leading attractions of the world of video games since Wolfenstein 3D popularized the genre in the 90s First Person Shooter. In 2018 there is an excellent selection of titles of these characteristics. Games that, from a subjective perspective, approach the action from many different prisms.

If you like extreme experiences, to dry. In a policy that includes the witness of other very punitive releases with the user, we have to worry about everything that we would have to deal with in real life in a situation of life-or-death combats in an immense environment.

Far Cry 5

The Far Cry saga has become surprised of almost nobody, one of the references to the first-person action genre. Ubisoft acquired from Crytek one of its most reputable brands and turned it into a reef that has perfectly merged action, open world and exotic places to explore. This year’s installment, set in a lost place in deep America.

Elements that debuted in this delivery, such as airplanes or the possibility of overcoming the entire cooperative campaign together with a friend, are compelling reasons to pay close attention to a light, fun and spectacular proposal.

Publisher: Ubisoft

The acronym for Get the Fuck Out hides a first-person shooter from the creator of PayDay, focused towards the cooperative, and the multiplayer will be right. In it, you have to face terrifying monsters that will attack us in waves, and that will make things very difficult when it comes to maximizing our resources as a team.

It is a four-player co-op game with its care graphical section at the same time it offers a very interesting visual support for a distressing experience, fast and without complications.

Hunt: Showdown

Today it is really difficult to discern what is the current status of Crytek, a study that was once among the leaders of the Triple-A but at the moment is very focused on the F2P after having problems to get ahead some of their last projects. With Hunt: Showdown they do not intend to continue delving into the free-to-play model, but they do maintain the idea of offering an online attraction and provide a unique experience of hunting creatures.

The title seems that it will take a very different channels and with a terrifying point. Co-Op with friends in shooter proposals where it does not matter as much to hit with our shots as to organize an appropriate tactic.

Initial release date: 2018
Engine: CryEngine
Publisher: Crytek
Platforms: PC

Insurgency: Sandstorm

Action with a tactical point are words that are repeated in this special, but in the case of Insurgency: Sandstorm is the most appropriate to define this title that will soon have Alpha closed, and that is set in the warlike Middle East. This strong emphasis on achieving a meticulous military setting is one of his main strengths, but the main attraction is to bring playable experience and familiar conflicts that we all have in mind.

The video game, in fact, was news recently for having renounced the campaign/story mode that had initially planned, and for having focused all their efforts on the online.

Initial release date: 2018
Engine: Unreal
Publisher: Focus Home Interactive
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

Metro Exodus

With two great episodes of action in the first person and behind their backs, the guys at 4A Games have the opportunity to take the Metro series to the general public with Exodus. It is the only thing that they lack. So far they have achieved shooters of a huge quality, that nobody disputes, but if their sales have been good they still do not live up to what they deserve.

With Exodus, which we still do not know much about, they have the opportunity to explore new horizons in their careful adaptation of the written works of the fascinating Dmitry Glukhovsky.

Initial release date: 2018
Engine: 4A Engine
Publisher: Deep Silver
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

Overkill’s The Walking Dead

The creators of the addictive saga PayDay have a great project in hand; although it has been more news for its delays than for its playable novelties, it is a first-person shooter that should be followed closely. Its emphasis on the cooperative, the presence of strong characters and very different styles of play and the ever-fascinating universe of walkers make Overkill’s The Walking Dead a strong candidate to be surprised this year.

If you are a follower of the television series or the comics because Robert Kirkman has given his blessing to the project calling it a “great video game,” for what he has seen during his development. Also, you will like cooperative experiences with that touch of hook and frenzy characteristic of the works of Starbreeze, authentic veterans in these conflicts.

Initial release date: 2018
Engine: Unreal
Publishers: Starbreeze Studios, 505 Games
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

Ready or Not

The shadow of the Rainbow Six saga is long, and at a time yet to be finalized this year, a Ready or Not will be on sale that promises brutality within its first-person action pattern with a strong tactical component. In development since mid-2016, this title is set in the future in which America is at a deadline and in which their multiplayer games are divided between those who try to maintain order and those who try to change things.

The game gathers the same spirit as the last Ubisoft shooter and translates its formula to even more hardcore and radical mechanics. So far not much is known about the game, but everything points to that will fit with that profile of more competitive and tough fans of the market.

Initial release date: 2018
Engine: Unreal
Publishers: Void Interactive
Platforms: PC
