Well, we must admit – the last two or three years have been pretty nice for the shooter genre, especially for FPS games. There were quite a few gamechangers, which dived into the market and completely upended industry trends and expectations. Who are they, you ask? Sure thing, we are talking about PUBG, Rainbow 6 Siege, Overwatch, and let’s not forget the king of the dot – CS:GO.

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries
- Release Date: December 2018
- Developer: Piranha Games
It’s been a long wait for MechWarrior fans. 15 years ago was the last time they got a new game from the famous series. Quite a long time, and Piranha Games would probably agree. That’s why this year they decided to warm fans’ hearts with a fifth MechWarrior game called Mercenaries. According to game development company CEO Russ Bullock, Mercenaries is

- Developer: Crytek
Combination of a horror and a battle royale, Hunt: Showdown presents a world of hunters tracking each other. There are five groups of hunters, and they are vying to kill each other deep in the woods with the help of dark gods and black magic. Because, why not? Crytek’s shooter is made to be different and fun, with heavy influence of horror novel kings like Poe or H.P. Lovecraft. Isn’t it amazing? We’re pretty sure it is. Bring three bosses hell, stay alive, and have fun along the way.
- Release Date: 22 February 2019 (Early Access is Available)
- Developer: 4A Games
After various dangerous events in post-apocalyptic Moscow, our hero with a (surprisingly!) Russian name Artyom is still trying to escape the dark deep subway. But life is not easy, and when it gave Artyom lemons he threw them up to the steam system, and then dived into it to start a long journey out of the country. 4A Games say this time the game will be larger, have far more levels, and will be equipped with new ammo. Oh! And a mutant bear, there totally will be a mutant bear.
