Top 10 Upcoming Shooting Games in 2016

Prepare to unleash those trigger fingers, cuz 2016 is filled with lots of exciting shooters, and this time around they look bigger and better. Doom’s coming! Do I need say more? Read one for our list of top 10 shooters releasing in 2016!

Overwatch: Overwatch is a highly stylized team-based shooter set on earth in the near future. Every match is an intense multiplayer showdown pitting a diverse cast of soldiers, mercenaries, scientists, adventurers, and oddities against each other in an epic, globe-spanning conflict.
Overwatch is primarily played from a first-person perspective. However, there are moments when certain abilities are used that pull the camera back to a third-person perspective, giving you an opportunity to watch the ability play out or get a better sense of your surroundings so that you can focus on aiming at foes.

Uncharted 4: Following a delay that pushed Uncharted 4 out of the 2015 holiday season, A Thief’s End has a firm release date in March 2016, so everyone has three more months to emotionally prepare for the end of Nathan Drake. Of course, it’s not certain that’s what the title means – Nathan’s long-lost brother Sam (new to the series and played by Troy Baker) also appears to be a thief, so it’s anyone’s guess which thief will be ‘ending’.
What we know for sure is that Sam convinces Drake to return to the globe-trotting, treasure-pilfering life for one last job off the coast of Madagascar. Sully is in tow for optimal joke making, though Elena has yet to make an appearance, but no need to worry just yet – what would the last Uncharted game be without Elena?

Far Cry Primal: Far Cry Primal was announced in October through a teaser video that didn’t actually show much gameplay. The game is described as a “full-fledged single-player experience,” set in 10,000 BC, at a time when “massive beasts like the woolly mammoth and sabertooth tiger ruled the Earth.”As Takkar, a hunter and last surviving member of his hunting group, players arrive in an area called Oros with the singular goal of survival.

The game launches in 2016 for
Xbox One,PlayStation 4, and PC. They will meet a cast of memorable characters who will help them push back and tame the dangers of the wild, which could also mean we’ll have co-op, maybe even with four players this time!

Homefront: It’s been a long and troubled development but Homefront: The Revolution is finally seeing the light of day. A sprawling open world city makes it feel like Far Cry with guerilla warfare and that’s just fine. Philadelphia in 2029 is ruled by the Greater Korean Republic and it’s you and a bundle of other (mostly leather clad) rebels taking on the city with explosives in hand.
Just like Mad Max, everything goes boom here and there’s even remote-controlled explosive devices to take on the technologically-superior enemy. Dambusters is concentrating on weapon customization with every part of your weapon able to be satisfyingly swapped out for other bits. The action is suitably chaotic, too, with enemy drones sweeping in and sending you running for cover to replan your attack. Add in a motorbike to cross the city and explore areas of the map, and this is an open world we’re excited to explore.

Doom: If you’re looking for blood, gore, shotguns, and more gore, the new Doom looks like it has all of those bases covered. In the E3 2015 gameplay demo, we finally got to see Doom in action and it wasn’t long before we were seeing demons decapitated by shotgun blasts and ghouls being dismembered with a chainsaw.
Doom looks like it’s staying true to the old shooter mechanics, forcing you to pick up armor and health packs, but there is new flair added to the shooting with gruesome execution moves that allow you to stomp heads and rip the arms off of stunned enemies. Oh, the joy.

Gears Of War: Gears is back, and while the series over time evolved into a brotastic locust-filled curb-stomp-fest (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing) many of us are excited that Gears of War 4 will bring back the darker, horror-tinged vibe that the series initially started out with. There’s not much to know at this point other than the fact that the two leads, Kait and JD, are fighting bizarre creatures in courtyards and dark corridors with familiar weapons.
The studio responsible for the franchise, now renamed to The Coalition, is led by Rod Fergusson, the former Director of Production at Epic Games, who has been working on the series since the first game.

Ratchet & Clank: The famous Lombax and his mechanical companion are making the jump to the big screen. With this transition, Sony and Insomniac are releasing a new Ratchet and Clank game. It follows the events of the movie, which in turn is a retelling of the first game. While this game is being billed as a remake, the gameplay will be immediately recognizable to fans of the series.

With insane new weapons like the Pixleator – a gun that turns all enemies into 8-bit sprites that then shatter into a shower of pixels – and classics like the disco ball firing Groovitron, the series is still in good shape heading into 2016. We can’t wait for the new Ratchet & Clank game.

Star Citizen : Star Citizen is an upcoming space trading and combat simulator video game for Microsoft Windows and GNU/Linux. in development by Chris Roberts and Cloud Imperium Games. Star Citizen will consist of two main components: first person space combat and trading in an MMO-style Persistent Universe and modifiable, optionally cooperative private servers including a branching single player campaign known as Squadron 42.

The game will feature Oculus Rift support.Both
Star Citizen and Squadron 42 are set in a 30th-century Milky Way centered around the fictional UEE (United Empire of Earth). A strong focus will be placed on player interaction, with player behaviour influencing and being influenced by a dynamic economy system.

Battleborn: is a video game concept we’ve been wanting for quite some time. It’s an FPS arena game with heroes as opposed to soldiers, and the genre needs the fresh take badly. The game is said to have a lot of Borderlands’ elements in it (what else would you expect when Gearbox developed that as well).
It’s expected to be released in early 2016.

Another Call Of Duty: Well, there’s going to be another one of these.
